Tom Hardy is the hardest actor for Americans to understand.

A survey by Preply found that American viewers have a harder time deciphering the British actor’s dialogue than any other actor.

Hardy plays Alfie Solomons in the British gangster drama series Peaky Blinders, which was also voted the hardest show for Americans to understand. Hardy fans are aware of how difficult it is to understand Hardy, who is known for mumbling with his heavy accent and delivering lines behind a mask.

Other actors who made the hard-to-understand list were Sofia Vergara, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sean Connery, Jackie Chan, Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch and Ozzy Osbourne.

This is not the first time Hardy’s tough accent was in the spotlight. In 2018, Vulture published a piece titled “Tom Hardy Needs to Learn How to Enunciate” and in 2020, Dallas Observer ran an article Ranking Hardy’s movies  “by how hard it is to understand what he’s saying.”
