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.”

    I agree; she probably is a little too old for him.

  2. Cynthia • March 3, 2016 @ 10:15 AM

    She looks older than him. (JK) 🙂

  3. birdman_38 • March 3, 2016 @ 10:20 AM

    I would too if I were him.

    You’re just jealous, tribute.

  5. msun • March 3, 2016 @ 11:42 AM

    she looks older than 19! she looks great 🙂

  6. TotallyDissappointed • March 3, 2016 @ 11:54 AM

    I’ve been a fan for a very long time but this obvious fake relationship is so unnecessary and damaging to his reputation that I honestly can’t support him or his charities. It is obvious that he is not the man he portrayed himself to be. I gave to both his charities. NO MORE! It’s disgusting!

    An older man dating a very young woman….this is suppose to be news to people. Although I find it interesting when men justify this by saying that “Age is just a number”. Yet you very rarely see younger men dating much older women. It’s usually the reverse.

  8. Frank • March 3, 2016 @ 1:21 PM

    Wow.. a 13yr Agegap. That’s nothing 🙂

  9. js • March 3, 2016 @ 3:09 PM

    She has to get made up to look like she’s in her 30’s, because she really doesn’t look like a 19-year old. Typical of female children, they try hard to look older than they are, then they hit their mid-20’s and want to look younger. A definite sign of immaturity, Henry, not maturity.

  10. Karen • March 3, 2016 @ 3:11 PM

    I married a guy 10 years younger than me and now that I am in my mid-fifties, the age difference is starting to make a difference. Through my own fault, I am not in the same shape he is in, and twice in the last few months, people have asked if I was his mother.

  11. do lo • March 3, 2016 @ 3:20 PM

    Henry is old enough to be her father

  12. Ladytruth • March 3, 2016 @ 3:23 PM

    oooh ahhh look it’s TaraTrash the Superstar with her nobody boyfriend!
    — Well, Durrell is
    screwed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! well done HENRY PAEDO-VILL! I really don’t understand. What he wants to achieve with all this. I think she is using him for her own good not his. And on top of that, he is ruining his reputation. A big amount of comments are negative.
    no doubt a lot of people have something to say about it. So many comments to get through on those articles. One comment on the yahoo article by a Steve “She is an ex of mine and he isn’t lying, she is very mature… In the bedroom” 19!!!!!! poor creepy Cavill !
    he’s really pathetic ! the mother of his”girlfriend”have dead animals decorating the sitting room,a friend of his baby teenager girl’s family mr john milford is a hunter.and he supports DURRELL? hypocritr!hes screwing his careerso fast.pathetic, bold creepy man.

  13. Ladytruth • March 3, 2016 @ 3:28 PM

    can we use already the hashtag #careersuicide? for henry of course!
    Well, his first appearance on the Academy Awards red carpet, and he’s already messed up the whole thing. Well done, Henry! can we get Kal back and exchange Oompa with him? they look like grandpa and Lolita… I guess the bad comments on his latest CavillConservation’s post were right and they were deleted of course. her family members are hunters! Again henry! and then :Henry Cavill Tries To Debate ‘Batman v Superman’ With Kids” so he’s debating it with his girlfriend then…. right? “age is just a number” ur beautiful face will not save u this time henry cavill
    Yeah, even his charity is taking a hit.

  14. Ladytruth • March 3, 2016 @ 3:29 PM

    I mean saying she has a lot of maturity? Yes she has sex since a very young age if this means maturity
    I was laughing reading they can talk about everything…like seriously …with a 19 years old?! He can’t talk about his damn Playstation , Mahiki and brands of beers …doesn’t he realize it shows he has no brain himself? I bet that girl got laid since her 14/15 years old ..;I truly doubt he did the same . I truly doubt he was in the exact same situation. He was just trying to make it seem normal. Like one poster said, trying to normalize abnormality. Hey Trash Can! I suppose everyone has seen the latest Cavill Conservation post? There were 44 comment posts on it, and they were the standard ones for him at the moment, a lot of people saying they wouldnt support his charities anymore. There are now…..11! All ass licking comments too. Someone’s been doing a big clean up! A whole 33 comments removed. Insane!
    Henry’s family has already suffered because of this. His own married brother & friend were accused of having a threesome with TK. How disgusting is that?

    i just saw the instagram page of his bro charlie,who is on holiday in hawaii in these days, in the last picture he posted,there are 3 people photographed by back you can’t see the face, except for the blonde girl ,and they seem the creepy bold man henry , the little escort tara and charlie. not sure at 100 per cent but in case she won till now 1) a trip to shangai, 2) a trip to new zealand, 3) an hermes bag, 4) a trip to LA and now maybe a trip to hawaii?! really superwhat you’re so ridicolous?Henry needs to get as far as it he can away from her!!
    I also find Henry’s bro Charlie , false and mean. they’re not genuine honest people and they say the have big moral values.Really! like paedophilia or Ephebophilia. the primary or exclusive adult sexual interest in mid-to-late adolescents, generally ages 15 to 19.”
    It’s really sad, this should be his time to shine and receive accolades instead the Internet is talking about his girlfriend (negatively), and his inappropriate tasteless comments of his sex life. Not to mention that he isn’t looking his best. — Whos the idiot in their relationship? …

  17. Snepts • March 3, 2016 @ 4:46 PM

    Ladytruth: “can we use already the hashtag #careersuicide? for henry of course!” If Man of Steel didn’t kill his career, nothing will.

  18. Michael • March 3, 2016 @ 5:03 PM

    18 is an adult, so 19 is fine. I don’t see what the issue the article’s “author” — and I use that term very loosely — has with the age difference, you never see this “author” write about it when it’s an older woman and a younger man!

  19. Kenneth • March 3, 2016 @ 6:59 PM

    OMG! This means… absolutely nothing to me. Why are so many people obsessing over a relationship between two consenting adults? Especially since they don’t know either parties and Cavill/King dating has zero impact on their lives.

  20. WWJD • March 3, 2016 @ 9:43 PM

    first racism at the Academy Awards and now this?!? what is this world coming to?
    its all going to hell in a hand basket piece by piece!

  21. Janey • March 3, 2016 @ 11:40 PM

    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.

  22. Mack • March 3, 2016 @ 11:54 PM

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

  23. aly • March 4, 2016 @ 12:25 AM

    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!

  24. Nobodyihparticular • March 4, 2016 @ 4:32 AM

    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

  25. Nobodyihparticular • March 4, 2016 @ 4:39 AM

    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.

  26. Ladytruth • March 4, 2016 @ 4:02 PM

    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!

  27. LA in TO • March 5, 2016 @ 9:06 AM

    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.

  28. 730N • March 10, 2016 @ 1:44 PM

    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.

  29. Ons4ever • April 1, 2016 @ 1:36 AM

    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
