“Inception” Star Tom Hardy Engaged to British Girlfriend

“Inception” star Tom Hardy is getting hitched. People.com reported that Hardy, 32, and British actress Charlotte Riley, 28, were engaged in July and could be headed to the altar as early as next year.

A rep for Riley confirmed that the actress has indeed accepted Hardy’s proposal. A report by British newspaper Mail Online claims that Riley might also be planning to sing during the wedding reception. The actress sometimes sings in a band. Hardy and Riley met last year during the filming of a British made-for-TV adaptation of the classic “Wuthering Heights,” where the two played lovers Heathcliff and Cathy. The Mail claimed that Hardy was then in a relationship with Rachel Speed, with whom the actor has a son.

It would be the second marriage for Hardy, who divorced Sarah Ward not long after they were married in 1999. Hardy and Riley have yet to announce the date for their wedding, although the couple has confirmed that preparations are already going on.
