Who is Henry Cavill dating? A look at his romance with Kaley Cuoco, brief engagement and love for younger women
Henry Cavill carved a place for himself in Hollywood back in the 2000s and gained stardom with the show 'Tudos'. He then whooshed into hearts with his role as DC's Superman in the rather sombre 'Man Of Steel'. Not only did he become synonymous with Superman, but he also played the role of the caped superhero in 'Justice League', 'Batman VS Superman: Dawn Of Justice' and then joined the cast of 'The Witcher'. While his career continues to make ripples, it's his love life that fans keep asking about. Who won't fall for those eyes? *Swoon*.
Though he has tried to keep his love life private, here's the little that we do know. He was engaged back in 2011 and then found himself in many relationships.
A broken engagement
Cavill met Ellen Whitaker, an English show jumping rider, back in 2009 at the Olympia Horse Show where sparks flew between the two of them. After two years of dating, Cavill decided to pop the question and propose to Whitaker. His rep confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the actor did, in fact, propose to Whitaker on May 3, 2011, causing fans across the globe drown themselves in glasses of wine that he would officially be taken off the market. However, their engagement lasted for only some time as the two ultimately parted ways and Henry was single again.
Dating Kaley Cuoco
After his split with Whitaker, Cavill briefly dated 'The Big Bang Theory' star Kaley Cuoco. The two apparently met in June 2013 and by July they were inseparable. The paparazzi snapped photos of them shopping, hiking, dining and running errands all around LA. However, just two weeks after these photos, the couple called it quits. Some even accused the pair of falsifying their relationship for publicity since they do, in fact, share the same publicist. However, it seems that Cuoco was not ready for the glaring limelight that came with dating Cavill. "She just got overwhelmed with the very public Superman relationship. She’s not used to that much attention and chaos in her life," a source told OK! Magazine at the time.
Cavill made headlines when he moved on to 19-year-old Tara King, who was 14 years younger than him. They met at a soccer match at Twickenham Stadium in London, England. This raised many eyebrows and Cavill got much heat for dating a woman much younger than him. Interestingly, prior to King, Cavill dated Marisa Gonzalo, who was 10 years his junior. In fact, it is said that she leaked information about King and him to the press. Cavil has reportedly said that he prefers to "date younger women", who "do not have careers" yet.
Who is Cavill dating now?
In 2017, Cavill found love in Lucy Cork, a stunt-double. The two met on the sets of 'Mission Impossible 6' and they apparently had a meet-cute on the sets of the film. Cavill showered praise on Lucy in an Instagram video he posted in August of 2017. In the video, Lucy is seen boxing and throwing punch after punch.
They hit it off. However, the two are said to have split in 2018. While it's believed that the two got back together, neither party has confirmed it. Cavill's Instagram account shows no more photos of Cork, which could mean that he is back to being available for dating.
