The transformation to play Batman's nemesis Bane in The Dark Knight Rises involved a combination of protein and razors for Tom Hardy, who beefed up and balded down to make him barely recognisable from his usual heartthrob image.

As the evil villain hellbent on destroying Gotham and the caped crusader, Hardy terrified masses of Bat-fans. Not that many people could understand a word he said. But as the saying goes – actions speak louder than words – and Bane's iconic destruction of a stadium mid-way through an American Football match was fairly badass as far as actions go.
