“This Means War” certainly wasn’t a film that garnered any awards the year it came out. In fact, it was a film that was on many critics’ “forgettable” list.

The rom-com starring Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy didn’t win over many new hearts, including Hardy. Recently, Hardy told the truth about his time on set and how he’ll probably never do another rom-com again.

Hardy told USA Today that he took the film on as a way to expand his acting horizons, but that the plan backfired. “I love to do things that I hadn’t done before,” he said. “I didn’t understand how you could do something which is so fun and be so miserable doing it.” Hardy, who also said he felt like he was an “other” while filming, stated, “I’ll probably won’t do a romantic comedy again, do you know what I mean?”

Hardy is sticking to that word so far; you’ll see him battle post-apocalyptic road rage in “Mad Max: Fury Road,” coming to theaters May 15, 2015. Right now, Hardy can be seen in “The Drop,” which also stars Noomi Rapace and the late James Gandolfini.
