Tom Hardy is engaged, totally off the market for men and women (sob)


Damn it! Charlotte Riley is the new Jennifer Westfeldt. We must destroy her for the good of hot dudes everywhere. Riley’s rep has announced that she’s engaged to bisexual heartthrob Tom Hardy. Hardy’s rep, meanwhile, is all “Who?” No, he just didn’t confirm it, but I think it’s probably on! Hardy has memorably stoked our homoerotic fantasies by discussing in detail how he’s played with everyone and everything, and how he spent years getting high and f-cking everything with two legs and a tight ass. Hardy always emphasized that all of that was in the past, and I think he and this Charlotte chick (she’s an actress) have been dating for a couple of years.

It’s not a dream: Inception star Tom Hardy is engaged to his girlfriend British actress Charlotte Riley.

The pair met on the set of a British TV adaptation of Wuthering Heights last year (he played Heathcliff to her Cathy) and are hoping to wed next year. They are already planning the event, PEOPLE has confirmed.

The Mail on Sunday claims that she may even take a bigger-than-usual role in the celebrations. Not only will the 28-year-old walk down the aisle, but she also wants to help provide the entertainment. Riley sometimes sings in a band that she hopes will perform for guests.

A rep for Riley confirmed they were engaged this summer. A rep for Hardy, 32, had no comment.

[From People]

So is Hardy a one-woman kind of man? We’ll find out. In my opinion, he’s probably a Sean Bean type (I just accidentally typed “tight” which shows you where my mind is). Tom will probably end up marrying five times and all of his ex-wives will claim that the only thing going for him was his awesomeness in bed. So don’t pack up your panties yet! I mean, good luck to Charlotte and everything (something tells me she’ll need it), but I’m guessing this one is not for keeps. Oh, and he’s already been married once before…? And he already has a kid too, I think. So… yeah. Good luck, Charlotte. Lucky bitch.

    I recently saw Inception again with a friend who hadn’t seen it. She was like, “I’m not sure who that British guy is, but I like him.” Exactly.

  2. geenie says:

    My vagina just shed a tear.

  3. Kitten says:

    She kinda scares me for some reason. Also, is his neck like CRAZY hairy in the 4th pic or is it just a shadow? Ugh. None of this is working for me. None of it.

  4. Mayela says:

    Not really. He IS a celebrity, right?

    • Kelly bongos says:

      No. he’s an actor. who can actually act. Probably why you couldn’t understand why you hadn’t heard of him.

  5. hstl1 says:

    He doesn’t do it for me at all. She can have him.

  6. Jezi says:

    @kitten that is definitely hair. Faithfulness in a relationship is hard as is, adding in a bisexual person into the mix is just a formula for disaster…good luck is right.

  7. embertine says:

    I’m a bisexual with three bi friends. We have none of us ever cheated. We have all of us been cheated on, by our straight and gay lovers.

    Please check your preconceptions at the door.

  8. Stephie says:

    And hearts are breaking all across the gender-sphere today.

    Knew this one was coming.

  9. Kj says:

    They’ve been engaged since like July I think. I’m not sure how long it’ll last, not because Hardy seems like a two timer, but just because they’re both actors and his star is about to be on the serious rise. If the mad max reboot is as good as I think it’ll be, Americans will see what the Brits have known for a little while now – Toms hot property. He’s a phenomenal actor, dashingly handsome and surprisingly intelligent. He’s very thoughtful and insightful in many of his interviews and seems like a decent human being. Hopefully he’ll stay that way the more famous he gets. And I wish them both the best because it seems like it’s damn near impossible for these Hollywood types to stay together.

    Edit: and I really don’t understand the notion that being bisexual makes you less likely to be faithful. That’s a really shortsighted misconception that I just can’t get behind. That’s like saying someone who’s open to dating outside their race is more likely to cheat than someone colors between the lines so to speak.

    Also, Tom never said he was bisexual. He said he had experimented before, like a lot of us have. Experimenting doesn’t make you a hard and fast bisexual. It just means you wanted to get your feet wet before deciding one way or the other.

  10. Jezi says:

    You’re right maybe it was shortsighted. I will apologize for that comment. See I’m open minded 🙂

  11. Kj says:

    @jezi – wow, the Internet can be a place of constructive discussion! Kudos to your openness and honesty 🙂

  12. Marianne says:

    Tom Hardy should be in Hot Guy Friday!

  13. Sophie says:

    Hasn’t this been known for a while? I thought it was common knowledge..

    still sucks though! lucky lucky girl.

  14. Jezi says:

    Thanks Kj much appreciated.

  15. hmm(the original) says:

    Well, being with his baby’s mother didn’t stop him from hooking up with his current fiancee, so I wouldn’t put too much stock in his faithfulness. I love him and have since Rocknrolla but the fact that he left the woman who supported him through his many problems for Charlotte (they hooked up during filming)does make me like him a little bit less. Perhaps most people who have newly discovered him don’t know his story but it’s funny how women in Hollywood who do the same thing are vilified but the men are universally adored. That feckin double standard, again.

  16. Kittypants says:

    He has been engaged for a while, ’tis true. Regardless, my letching over Mr Hardy will continue unabated.

  17. Lolo says:

    They were both brilliant @ wuthering heights: suggest you all to see it. Specially hardy; he added something extra dark and tormented to his character

  18. Trillion says:

    Thanks for the tip, Lolo. I will withstand a chick flick to see lots of Tom Hardy being dark and tormented. He has the prettiest mouth I’ve ever seen.

  19. malachais says:

    they look like they could be siblings, eek

  20. Kaz says:

    He is a much better actor than Channing Tatum who seems to be flavour of the month for some inexplicable reason. Tom is gorgeous .

  21. Fishlips says:

    I was going to mention “Wuthering Heights”, but you beat me to it! =P

    Both of them were fabulous in that production, and they had great chemistry. I think they were not dating yet during filming.

  22. Mistral says:

    I know this post is about Tom Hardy and all, and congrats bla bla on getting engaged, cute couple, and all of that….BUT….

    With your mention of Sean Bean—damn, that’s all I can think about now! You pretty much confirmed everything I’ve ever imagined about him.

  23. eja102 says:

    she is totally not good enough for him.

    and yes, that is total jealousy.

  24. Nancy says:

    Lucky Bitch anyways that bitch is ugly and she doesn’t seem like enough woman to handle him!!!!

  25. alexis says:

    Saw them in Wuthering Heights…kind of hate her now…

  26. lala in nYc says:

    I like her flower dress. It’s all 3D around the bustline. Cute!

    I must say, Celebitchy readers are an enlightened bunch. Very nice above, ladies

  27. Shay says:

    Maybe she is his beard. He won’t be the first or last actor to be engaged or married in order to mask his sexual orientation.

  28. Conando says:

    She looks cross-eyed.

  29. Chris says:

    Have any of you seen him in Bronson? It was quite an amazing transformation.

    Here’s the trailer:

  30. Camille says:

    He’s hot and she is pretty in a wonky/cross eyed kind of way (she was very off putting to watch on Wuthering Heights). I wish them the best.
