The star of 'Mad Max: Fury Road' is proud of the old, somewhat racy photos he had on the social networking site years ago.

Tom Hardy has no shame in his game — especially when it comes to pictures of himself sporting tighty-whities that the Mad Max: Fury Road star posted on Myspace years ago.

On Monday, while promoting Legend, Hardy told the U.K.’s Sky News that not only is he not embarrassed of the pictures — which have managed to stick around online despite his Myspace profile being deleted years ago — but also that he considers the images to be “glorious,” he told the publication.

"I've got no shame about my Myspace photos, especially the one of me in my underpants, which is a glorious photo of a man in his natural habitat,” said Hardy, according to Sky News.

From underwear to pornlike mustaches and, yes, even Hardy rockin’ a Speedo, it seems that the now-A-list actor would do almost anything for a laugh. It is working now as Internet gold.

In America, said Hardy, people say he should be ashamed of the pictures, but Hardy doesn't feel that way at all and is rather proud of them, according to Sky News.

“I might not be an Adonis, but I like to think of myself as an Adonis in that photo,” said Hardy of the underwear pictures. A somewhat ironic statement, since he went on to play the seemingly invincible villain Bane in the 2012 blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises.
