The boys shake hands as Witherspoon's character, Lauren, watches in horror.

The actor reveals that the movie was a "miserable" experience for him

And you thought you had bad memories of the film This Means War.

Tom Hardy, who starred opposite Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon in the McG-directed 2012 action comedy, told USA Today that his negative experience filming the movie makes it unlikely he'll ever agree to appear in another rom-com.

"I love to do things I hadn't done before," the actor said, explaining why he signed on for the film that is clearly outside of his grittier wheelhouse. "I didn't understand how you could do something that is so much fun and be so miserable doing it."

Hardy added that he felt "other" during the filming. "I probably won't do a romantic comedy again, do you know what I mean?" he said.

The film, which centered on Hardy and Pine's spy characters literally doing battle for Witherspoon's affections, grossed a wan $54 million at the domestic box office. Hardy, best known for playing Bane in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises and for roles in Inception and the recent Locke, attended this year's Toronto Film Festival to promote The Drop, which hit theaters this weekend.

He'll soon be seen in 2015's action reboot Mad Max: Fury Road, which is definitely not a rom-com.
