British actor Tom Hardy and his fiancee Charlotte Riley have signed up to become patrons of a cancer charity.
The stars, who stepped out for the London premiere of Hardy's new movie The Dark Knight Rises on Wednesday night (18Jul12), are lending their support to the Bowel Cancer UK organisation to raise awareness of the disease.
Riley says, "I am thrilled to become a patron of Bowel Cancer UK. I'm joining the charity to make sure that both women and men are aware of the symptoms of the disease and know what to do about them. Early diagnosis is so crucial to saving lives."
Her husband-to-be Hardy adds, "I'd like to help the charity to increase awareness and to help stop people dying needlessly from the disease. I hope you'll join me."
