Tom Hardy has been receiving more attention for his acting than ever before, but even with his fame at an all-time high, the British heartthrob was able to keep his recent wedding with longtime girlfriend Charlotte Riley under wraps.
At least that's the claim being made by British tabloids, who report that Hardy and Riley exchanged vows back on July 4.
London's Daily Mail reported yesterday that Tom proposed to Charlotte in 2010, and they've has spent the years since trying to find a gap in Hardy's work schedule so that they could get hitched.
That day finally came over the summer, and the couple kept it on the down-low with an extremely small ceremony attended only by immediate family and close friends. Tom's 6-year-old son from his previous marriage served as ring-bearer:
"It was a beautiful, low-key day made even more special by the fact that they had their closest friends and family around them," said one guest.
"There was nothing flashy about the wedding. They always said they want it to be about the two of them and their family rather than any grand gesture."
Hardy is perhaps best known to American audiences for his role as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.
He escaped a troubled past (including drug addiction and rumors that he was mentoring Lindsay Lohan) to become one of the most in-demand actors currently working in Hollywood.
