Movie star and heart-throb Tom Hardy may also be an animal lover. Photos taken at the New York premier of his latest movie, "The Drop", show Hardy interacting with a playful and very friendly pup named Zora and the pictures are pretty much the best things I've ever seen in my life.

"The Drop" takes an inside look at organized crime's use of local New York City bars as money-laundering 'drops'. When lonely Brooklyn bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) uncovers a drop of a different sort in the form of a battered pit bull puppy that he rescues from certain death, he comes into contact with Nadia, a mysterious woman hiding a dark past.
