Brianna Jordan and her friends visited the set of Hardy's new crime drama Animal Rescue during filming in Brooklyn on Thursday.
While Jordan and her friends "grabbed some coffee to stay warm," they ended up watching some of the shoot and "were lucky enough to catch [Hardy] between sets and got some pictures," she tells PEOPLE.

He's at it again!
Of course one adorable photo of Tom Hardy with a dog wasn't enough, so The Dark Knight Rises star struck an even more precious pose Thursday while continuing to shoot his new movie Animal Rescue in New York.
Not content with a mere cuddle this time, Hardy puckered his lips and possibly prepared to plant a wet one on his furry friend – who seemed to return the affection! Pouting right back, the pup leaned his head out of the actor's coat and looked ready for a smooch.

Katy Perry was a social butterfly on a recent night out at Soho House in West Hollywood.
Wearing a white lace dress, the pop star ran into a table of business associates having dinner in the garden and stopped to catch up before heading inside to the bustling bar to meet up with friends.
The recently single singer "was all smiles and in great spirits," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She had hellos for everyone at the table. She was adorable and spoke to them in a character-like cutesy voice before making her exit about five minutes later."
Things were calm for Tom Hardy, who was also at the Soho House the same Wednesday evening.
The Dark Knight Rises actor was spotted "having a nice time with a small group of friends around the bar area," an onlooker says. "He was chatting away and listening to stories while he sipped on a cocktail."
"He looked like he was enjoying a very low-key night out," the source adds.

Prince Harry looked like a dashing superhero on the red carpet as he arrived for the London premiere of Christopher Nolan's new Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, in a fine-looking blue suit, white button-down shirt and black shoes. The only thing missing was his tie – and a cape!
Though he hasn't been seen in a bat suit, the Prince did recently don sleek body-boarding gear on a trip to Cornwall. He's also been known to wear various costumes – both silly and serious.

Tom Hardy may be a bankable Hollywood star these days, but one of his biggest roles is off-screen: as a father to his 4-year-old son, Louis.
"I like to go no longer than three weeks without seeing my loved ones, but it does take some juggling," Hardy, 34, tells Company Magazine's August issue of being a working dad who often has to film far from home.
"I'm very much aware of being a 'Skype father,' which is sad," he says. "But I have to have the finances to make sure [my son will] be secure, and I can only do that by working."

They were one of the hottest casts to walk the red carpet this year in Cannes. The stars of the western crime drama Lawless gathered for a special PEOPLE shoot, right after their big moment on the steps of the Palais de Festivals on May 19.
Shot steps from the Palais at the Baoli Beach Club before their after-party, the cast includes Guy Pearce, Jason Clarke, Shia LaBeouf (who brought his mother as his date), Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hardy and Dane DeHaan.
The close-knit cast toasted each other and Chastain, a red carpet mainstay this year, who was on the cover of French magazine Gala. When Hardy held up the magazine vertically, pretending that Chastain was a centerfold, the group burst out laughing.
Festival veteran Wasikowska says, "It's always so great here. It's like Hollywood on overload!"
