Lindsay Lohan may be hanging out with ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson a lot lately in Venice, but a source close to Lilo tells us that "her heart is with Tom Hardy."

Hardy, who has been labeled Lindsay's "sober coach," has been spending day after day with the actress.

The source tells X17online exclusively:

    "Lindsay loves how Tom has been sober for years, and she wants to make sure she follows in that path. He's a good looking guy with a great career who has overcome some major obstacles. They're perfect together. Lindsay hopes it will turn into a serious relationship. She's really into him."

Hardy is reportedly engaged to actress Charlotte Riley. Sounds like this could be drama in the making. We have to say, if this relationship does works out between Linds and Tom, they could definitely be the sexiest couple in Hollywood!
