Inside Tom Hardy and Wife Charlotte Riley’s Long-Lived Marriage
“It wasn’t love at first cup,” said Charlotte Riley.
Acclaimed English actor Tom Hardy has always been private when it comes to revealing details about his married life with his girlfriend turned wife Charlotte Riley.
The now-married couple first met each other while working together on the 2009 TV mini-series titled Wuthering Heights. In the show, Hardy portrayed the role of Heathcliff whereas Riley played the role of Cathy.
Although the couple met while working together, and Hardy being a charismatic man, sparks didn’t fly instantly. Speaking with Daily Mail, Riley described their initial meeting as, “It wasn’t love at first cup. In fact, I was a bit unnerved when he switched into Charles Bronson.”
Nonetheless, things slowly started to brew between them as they went on multiple coffee dates, and eventually, they started dating. But, the initiation of their relationship was met with cheating allegations against Hardy.
There were rumors that The Dark Knight Rises star was cheating on his former partner Rachael Speed. It was said that Hardy was already dating Riley while he was still together with Speed and expecting a son with her.
And it all started after Hardy and Speed broke up in 2009, after five years of togetherness, and started dating Riley in the same year. However, neither Hardy nor Riley have spoken about these speculations from the beginning of their togetherness to now.
Tom Hardy and Charlotte Riley got married in 2014
Despite the cheating allegations, Hardy and Riley started together and continued with their relationship. They ultimately got engaged around 2010.
And around five years after they started dating, they got married. On July 4, 2014, the engaged couple walked down the aisle to share the wedding vows in a private Château de Roussan wedding held in France.
There was no news of their wedding as it was very private and only certain guests such as close friends and immediate family members were only invited. Among the limited guests, one was Hardy’s former girlfriend Rachael Speed – so the cheating allegations don’t seem to be true.
The news of their wedding was only revealed to the media and public when a family member revealed it to a reporter. If that hadn’t happened, it was almost certain that the world wouldn’t have known about the love birds tying the knots.
Since their marriage, Hardy and Riley have always been together and supported each other in every condition. But, as both of them are very private about their personal lives, they have always kept things under the wraps and revealed only small details.
The level of privacy they have opted for was already proven through their private wedding, and it was once again made known when the married couple welcomed children. As of now, Hardy and Riley are parents to their two biological children.
They first welcomed a daughter in 2015, but to this date, no details about her have been made public — including her name. In December 2018, the couple welcomed another child, a son named Forrest — named after Hardy’s character, Forrest Bondurant, in the movie Lawless.

Besides that, the couple is also parents to Hardy’s son with Speed named Louis Thomas Hardy. Riley has maintained a good relationship with her stepson.
As of this writing, Hardy and Riley have been married for more than seven years, and they will celebrate eight years of marital relationship on this year’s July 4.
Who is Tom Hardy’s wife, Charlotte Riley?
By now, some of you might have already guessed that Hardy’s wife, Riley, is an actress. She hails from Grindon, United Kingdom, and is known for her amazing performances in multiple acting gigs.
Some of her renowned movies and TV shows include Easy Virtue, Wuthering Heights, World Without End, Edge of Tomorrow, King Charles III, Trust, Swimming with Men, Dark Heart, and A Christmas Carol.
Additionally, she has made her appearance in the hit BBC gangster drama Peaky Blinders, in which Hardy portrays the recurring role of Alfie Solomons. Recently, Hardy reprised his role in the sixth and final season of the show, but as Riley’s character’s arc ended, she didn’t return.
Born on December 29, 1981, as Charlotte Frances Riley, the 5 feet 5 inches tall actress was brought up in Grindon, County Durham. Her father’s name is Michael Riley, and her mother’s name is Margaret Riley. Besides her parents, she has two siblings named Simon Riley and Joanne Riley.
A brief look at Tom Hardy’s past relationships
Before getting engaged and married to his present wife, the Venom star was in a couple of relationships.
He was first married to a producer named Sarah Ward. They tied the knots in 1999 and parted ways around five years later, in 2004.
One year after his divorce, the actor met director Rachael Speed on the sets of the 2006 TV show The Virgin Queen. They eventually started dating and welcomed a son, Louis Thomas Hardy, in April 2008.
However, things didn’t go well between the parents of one as they parted ways in 2009 after five years of togetherness.

Forever Love – Jon Bon Jovi’s Lasting Marriage with Wife Dorothea Bongiovi
Jon Bon Jovi got together with Dorothea after her boyfriend went away from the town.
Singer John Francis Bongiovi Jr, best known as Jon Bon Jovi, and his wife, Dorothea Bongiovi, are high school sweethearts, and their love story might seem just like a Hollywood movie. Their story serves as a testament to the power of true love.
Jon and his wife Dorothea’s love story began when they were attending Sayreville War Memorial High School in New Jersey. They started dating during their teenage years and waited almost a decade before finally tying the knot.
During a 2017 interview with Best Life, the rockstar reminisced about how he and Dorothea got together. Dorothea was dating a guy who joined the service and left town. He saw an opportunity and made his move, giving the guy a brief window of three weeks before he started dating Dorothea.
This decision marked the beginning of their long-lasting relationship, as they spent the next 40 years barely leaving each other’s sides.
In 1989, while on The New Jersey Syndicate Tour and stopping in Los Angeles, Bon Jovi traveled to Las Vegas in secret where he tied the knot with his high school sweetheart, Dorothea, on April 29th at the Graceland Wedding Chapel.
Jon Bon Jovi and his wife credits their friendship to a successful marriage
Bon Jovi and Dorothea are married for over 3 decades and will soon hit their 34th anniversary in April of 2023. The couple’s love for each other has remained steadfast throughout the years, and they have even teamed up for philanthropic endeavors.
In 2006, they founded the JBJ Soul Foundation, which has since established three restaurants in the United States that operate on a pay-what-you-can basis. When asked about the secret to their long-lasting relationship, Bon Jovi and Dorothea credit their friendship as the key factor, as mentioned in PEOPLE.

“We really like each other. We want to hang out,” Bon Jovi said to the outlet back in 2020, while Dorothea attributes her gift for recognizing potential as one of the reasons why their relationship has been so successful.
“I always said I was good at spotting potential too. I have a gift,” Dorothea added. The couple has since raised four children together, including three sons, Jesse, Jacob, and Romeo, and the eldest of them all, a daughter named Stephanie.
Jon Bon Jovi doesn’t know how he got famous as a family guy
Bon Jovi sometimes finds it surprising that he is known for being a family man, given his 25 years of experience in the rock ‘n’ roll industry and some of the things he has seen, done, and said.
Nonetheless, he loves his wife and children and wouldn’t trade them for anything. His status as a family man seems to stick to him, and he wonders how he became the poster boy for it.
“I’ve been in one of the biggest rock bands in the world for 25 years, and I’m not a saint, and I have not been a saint. And, Christ, I missed tons of birthdays and school plays,” the rock star said, talking to Men’s Health.
“But it’s not like Dorothea came in halfway through the movie and didn’t know who she got and the divorce settlement is this because of that? She’s been in it the whole game. She understands what it means,” Bon Jovi continued to share about his wife.
“It’s my life, and it is what it is. But I don’t look at this week’s hot starlet and think about trading in or trading up. I don’t have a mistress on the side or another family across town. You’re never going to read that story about me. I have no regard for that whole lifestyle.”

Tom Schwartz and Raquel Leviss’ Dating Drama Explained
What is really going on?!
Tom Schwartz and Raquel Leviss’ dating drama has been the subject of discussion among reality show enthusiasts for quite some time now.
The duo has been through many ups and downs in their relationships, including several instances of Schwartz’s alleged infidelity. Some people claim that the pair are dating, while some are not.
Here is everything we know about the couple and what they have said about their relationship.
Are Tom Schwartz and Raquel Leviss dating?
Schwartz and Leviss have been friends for quite some time. Their relationship has been documented on the popular reality TV show Vanderpump Rules, which follows the lives of employees at Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant SUR.
Schwartz and Leviss’s dating rumors did not start until Schwartz broke up with his partner of 12 years, Katie Maloney. Maloney and Schwartz dated for seven years and were married for five years before parting ways in February 2022 and filing for divorce.
In April 2022, Schwartz and Leviss were rumored to be hooking up at Coachella, but Schwartz denied attending the event. Scheana Shay was one of the people who pushed Schwartz and Leviss together.

Shay claimed to do so since Maloney wanted it. She told Page Six’s Virtual Reali-Tea podcast in February 2023, “There was a conversation that happened between Katie and I … and Katie said, ‘I think they would make a good couple,’ or, ‘They might be a good match,’ or something along those lines.”
“So I took that and ran with it and I told Raquel, ‘Katie kind of gives you her blessing if you want to pursue that.’ And then you’ll see the rest play out,” she continued. However, Maloney denied ever having the conversation with Shay.
This back and forth went on for quite some time until August 2022, when Schwartz and Leviss confirmed that they hooked up during Shay’s wedding weekend.
Schwartz exclusively told US Weekly that he did not regret kissing Leviss. He said, “In the moment, there was momentary passion in the air. I kind of disappeared into that kiss, I’ll be honest. It was kind of a transformative moment.”
However, he was not sure if he would date Leviss. He noted, “In terms of any long-term romance with me and Raquel, I don’t know how much chemistry is there.”
Tom Schwartz and Raquel Leviss’s dating rumors in Vanderpump Rules
Season 10 of Vanderpump Rules aired on February 8, 2023, which has more details about Schwartz and Leviss’s relationship that has not been revealed to the public.
Schwartz discussed his relationship with Leviss in an episode of Vanderpump Rules that aired in February 2023 but was taped in July 2022.
He said, “We need to stop our little … by the way, I love when we hang out and flirt. We don’t have to stop hanging out and I feel like we bonded so much. We should probably stop doing our little schtick though. There is a double standard,” to which Leviss said, “It is so innocent and your ex-wife is overreacting quite a lot.”
Shay and Maloney fought over the singer’s decision to get involved in the drama. Maloney blamed Shay for being nosy and sabotaging everything.
Leviss made a move on Schwartz before they got together in an episode of Vanderpump Rules that aired in March 2023 but was filmed in July 2022. Maloney later received the news, which caused her to cry.
She said, “Raquel is not smart enough to come up with something this diabolical on her own. She’s literally the human equivalent of cotton candy,” and then blamed Shay for pushing Leviss to be with Schwartz.
She added, “This is why [Shay] is dead to me. It’s too much.”
At the time of writing, Schwartz and Leviss are not dating. However, future episodes of Vanderpump Rules may give insight into what is really going on between the two.
