49 Most Influential Men of 2012

What do a fictional sex god, a villain, and the fastest man in the world all have in common? They made AskMen.com's list of the 49 most influential men of 2012.

48. Tom Hardy

Don't recognize this guy? That's because his face was covered in both of his 2012 hits - as Forrest Bondurant in Lawless and Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. AskMen chose Tom Hardy as their Number 48 and he's one of our favorites because, "when Hardy was first tabbed as the 'roided-out Batman villain, people didn’t think the pretty boy could bulk up enough. Apparently, they didn’t know Hardy (and didn't see Bronson). For any guy who's unsure if he can take it to the next level, Hardy is a perfect example of the benefits of paying one’s dues and putting in the work."
