By now, they’ve mentioned the alternative - gay - ending to This Means War showing up on the DVD so many times that I’m beginning to think (hope) they’re serious. From an interview with McG (love the bonus TTSS-comment!):Mr Hardy, as unlikely as it sounds, has found the one movie with a bigger, gayer subtext than Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy .
“Yep,” nods McG. “It’s a very, very homoerotic movie. It’s Top Gun ’s shirtless volleyball scene homoerotic. I’ve even got an alternative ending for the DVD where the lads end up in each other’s arms. Tom is very alpha. And so is Chris.
“And Chris is so decidedly American and early Tom Cruise. And Tom Hardy is decidedly British. And I’ve also always liked pictures with that kind of alpha thing between male friends where they respect each other but couldn’t ever acquiesce.”
