Tom Hardy who?

The actor set his sights on the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor at Sunday's Academy Awards, but it seems the focus of the Twitterverse was elsewhere: on Hardy's wife, actress Charlotte Riley.

The two stepped out on Hollywood's most famous red carpet, both donning black ensembles, outside the Dolby Theatre. Hardy, 38, donned a simple black, three-piece tuxedo with a bowtie while Riley opted for a more glamorous look – and the Internet definitely noticed.

The actress, who delivered her first child last fall, wore a floor-length gown with lace on top. The gown featured a plunging neckline, and Riley, 34, topped off the look with a bold red lip.
