Did Tom Hardy secretly wed his fiancée Charlotte Riley?! Apparently! The Locke star spoke with Us Weekly at the Cinema Society Screening of his new film in New York City and when discussing lady love Riley, the actor gushed, saying his "wife" is a "pure, kind person."

Discussing his latest role in the drama, in which he spends the entire 85 minutes in a car, the 36-year-old admitted when he throws himself in to a role, his family supports him — including his "wife."

"Well my wife is an actor as well so she sort of gets it," he tells Us, "Apart from that, I’m a pain in the ass really. You know what I mean? Like any other boyfriend."

The British hottie went on to laugh, "Isn't that part of being in a relationship?" But when asked to share what he loves most about Riley, Hardy replied: "Aw, she's pure. She's just a very kind, pure person."

The actor, who wasn't wearing a wedding ring during the interview, met his other half on set of a British TV adaptation of Wuthering Heights in 2009 and became engaged to Riley a year later in 2010. Although he called Riley his "wife," Us has learned that they are not yet married. "They are still engaged," a source tells Us.
