Henry Cavill is dating a teenager

Henry Cavill and Tara King at Vanity Fair Oscar PartyAnother over-30 actor is dating a barely legal blonde, and no, it’s not Leonardo DiCaprio.

At the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty on Sunday, 32-year-old Henry Cavill arrived on the red carpet with his 19-year-old girlfriend, Tara King.

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star has reportedly been dating the college student since last year. The couple made their first public appearance together back in October at a rugby match at Twickenham Stadium in London, but haven’t made it official to the media until this past weekend’s festivities.

According to the Daily Mail, King is originally from London and is currently enrolled at Bristol University studying art history. The two reportedly met at the London nightclub Mahiki in August.

Henry recently opened up to Elle UK about that first meeting, revealing, “When I first met my girlfriend, I was super intimidated. I wanted to impress her. I was thinking, ‘Don’t mess this up, man. You’ve gotta play your cards exactly right.'”

The former Tudors actor also said that their 13-year age difference is a non-issue, “People say, ‘Age is just a number.’ A lot of times it’s not just a number. It’s actually a real and true sign of someone’s maturity, but in this case, she’s fantastic.”

“It’s a natural reaction,” he said, regarding the shock directed towards their unorthodox relationship. “But when I was 19, I was going out with a 32-year-old.”

    Yeah, I don’t get what this guy is doing–I feel badly for him as he seems to be just lost. The comments he’s been making in interviews have become awkwarder and ickier this past year (“I use sex as exercise,” the accidental boner, the “birds in bars,” the “things I can’t mention in an interview.”). Then daring the 21-year old hunter, and now a girl fresh out of high school. He seems to be unraveling. It makes you wonder why his family or his PR people or the studio doesn’t step in. He seems fixated on Superman, and even made a comment in an interview to the effect of “well, Superman and I are almost the same–we have a lot of the same qualities.” It’s definitely affecting my interest in seeing any more of his movies. I wish him well as a human being, and hope he sorts things out–that’s what we’re all trying to do–famous or not.

    atleast she’s legal… Paul Walker dated girls that were 16 (when he was 28 and 33)

    He’s probably dating her for the same reasons older women date men 25 or so years younger than they are. Remember Jennifer Lopez? Za Za Gabor? Joan Collins? This isn’t news, it’s natural for some people – men or women!

    Just read this article for curiosity sake and still have no idea who this actor is. To be honest I thought it said Harvey Keitel who I

    Just read this article f honestly I thought it said Harvey Keitel, but have no clue who this actor is. Not really sure what the big deal about the age difference is any how. It’s not like he’s extremely old. If she doesn’t mind giving daddy the sugar when he wants some, kudos to her.

    to Snepts : i would not be that sure. he’s a really ovverrated actor!he only can do that kind of superhero movie, he can’t really act! many people don’t like his false attitude and are not support his charities anymore (e.g. Durrell)!
    how can he supports Durrell when his baby girlfrind family have dead animals in their house,family of hunters ! 2 years ago there was Marisa now this one. history repeating! soo sad!

    Girls mature faster than boys, so they’re probably on the same maturity level. Someone his own age likely finds him immature, narcissistic, shallow and boring. Still, a thirty something dating a teenager? Ew.

    It’s just all a cover up to dissuade the ‘gay rumors’ from escalating. Better ‘press’ being a straight man dating a younger girl than being a closeted Heart Throb who dates men on the sly.

    Thank you Mark! Finally someone mentioned it I was shocked when I heard Paul Walker had been with his girlfriend for 7 yrs and she’s now 23 WOW Seriously! I mean where are the parents? I’m guessing they were Ok with it & I guess his daughter of roughly the same age probably saw her as a not much older sister. Ever since I heard of that I disliked everything he was involved in. It’s sad he passed away but I still consider him a petaphil
