Tom Hardy is single! Can I get a woot woot?
Tom and fiance Charlotte Riley have called it quits, and rumor has it Roomi Rapace might have something to do with it. Drama!
Tom and Charlotte have had a very rocky relationship for a long time. They’ve called off their engagement before, so maybe this time it will stick! Anyhoo – here’s where Noomi comes in. The two started hanging out last year (and did this photo shoot together), shortly before they began filming ‘Animal Rescue’ together. They’ve shown up at several events together – and in Hollywood – that means they’re totally banging.
Tom Hardy, who played Bane in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, has become close to Noomi Rapace, the star of ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’.
When Tom Hardy played Heathcliff to Charlotte Riley’s Cathy in ITV’s adaptation of Wuthering Heights in 2009, their passion continued off screen and the pair were soon engaged. Sadly, the actors’ love story seems to have come to no more of a happy ending than that of Emily Brontë’s characters.
Mandrake hears that the couple’s wedding has been put on hold. It is said that Hardy, 35, who played Bane in the Batman film The Dark Knight Rises, is being comforted by Noomi Rapace, the 33-year-old star of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Last year, the Hammersmith-born Hardy told me that Riley, who starred in the Channel 4 series World Without End, was “a difficult woman to pin down” when it came to choosing a wedding date.
“You’d have to ask Charlotte when we’re getting married,” he said. “She’s always so busy with work.”
Riley, 31, who will appear opposite Tom Cruise in the big-budget film All You Need Is Kill, responded in January: “That’s not true at all. He’s a cheeky bugger. We are desperate to do it, but I’ll never have a celebrity wedding. It will be low key, with family and friends.”
She was nowhere to be seen last week when Hardy and Rapace attended a gala dinner hosted by Denise Rich for her Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation, at Battersea Power Station. The pair stayed close together throughout the evening and could be seen cuddling while the pop star Jessie J performed songs. They later left together. OH…. THERE’S MORE (more…)
