Tom Hardy still hasn't got the tattoo Leonardo DiCaprio designed for him, because his handwriting is "really sh***y".

The 39-year-old actor lost a bet to the Hollywood legend when he claimed that he wouldn't be nominated for an Oscar for his role in The Revenant , in which he plays adventurer John Fitzgerald who betrays Leonardo DiCaprio's frontiersman Hugh Glass, and whilst the penalty for losing the bet was to have a tattoo designed by DiCaprio, 42, inked onto his skin he is still waiting for a "proper" version to be drawn up.

Speaking in December's issue of Esquire magazine, Tom said: "I haven't got [the tattoo] yet, because it sucks.

"He wrote, in this really shy handwriting, 'Leo knows everything.' I was like 'OK, I'll get it done but you have to write it properly.' "

Whilst Hardy didn't pick up the gong for Best Supporting Actor, he previously dedicated his nomination to the production team who made the semi-biographical survival story happen.

He said: "The nomination is for everybody that was in the cold, everyone who was in the wet. The film has been picked for them ultimately. It was a number of things, Leo called me, because Sean Penn wasn't available. The script, the director.

"To be part of his team, I would facilitate whatever it is that he needs and it's a pleasure to do that for somebody who has got a smorgasbord of options that they've already come up with, that they're feeding you and you them.

"It's wonderful to watch him [Leonardo] create and orchestrate himself on screen and also that carries through the entire ensemble. It's just lovely to be a team with somebody like that."

Meanwhile, DiCaprio picked up his first ever Academy Award for his performance as Glass in the film, taking home the prize for Best Actor.
