HARD man actor Tom Hardy saw his fortune rocket to £15 million after making nearly £9 million last year.
The massive rise was driven by his starring role in US box office hit Venom Let There Be Carnage which he also wrote and produced.
Details of his financial success are revealed in accounts which show his assets went up from £9.1 million to £17.8 million.
After paying taxes of £2.6 million and other creditors, the company called 33 1/3RD Limited was left with just under £15 million in the 12 months to the end of November last year.
The figures include the release of his last film Venom, the second in the series, which took £100 million in box office takings in the first weekend and more than £400 million in its cinema run.
It was almost entirely made in Hertfordshire studios meaning Tom, 45, was able to commute from his Surrey home.
The success of Venom was in contrast to his previous film Capone, about the gangster’s later years troubled with dementia and his violent past, which flopped at the box office.
