Tom Hardy is the gift that keeps on giving.
While everyone was watching the trainwreck that was Mariah Carey's live New Year's Eve performance, Tom Hardy was showing off his softer side and making the world fall in love with a dog named Woody.
The British actor, best-known for his roles as Bane and Mad Max, appeared on the year's final episode of the BBC's CBeebies Bedtime Stories to read You Must Bring a Hat by Simon Philip and Kate Hindley. During the charming five-minute read-through – which went down as Hardy cuddled on a couch with his dog Woody, we should add — the actor showed off his surprisingly soothing (and sexy) voice.
Even if you didn't cancel your New Years plans to let the actor lull you to sleep, you can still check out the magic below. But a word of warning: once Tom Hardy reads you a bedtime story, you will never be the same again.
