From an article about a book about metrosexuality. The author claims Tom Hardy as the ultimate symbol of the ‘orientation’: In the metrosexual noughties, some male stars have ‘come out’ as bisexual, or at least not necessarily only heterosexual. James Franco, Duncan James from the UK boyband Blue, and Tom Hardy for example. Forced to make a choice, who would he pick as a metrosexual icon? Simpson did not hesitate, and chose Hardy.
