Henry Cavill took his 19-yr-old univ. freshman girlfriend home to meet his family

I’M SORRY. I’m sorry I didn’t get around to posting this Henry Cavill photo until now. He posted last weekend to let the world know that A) his hair is growing out nicely and B) he’s getting ripped again to play Superman. Consider yourself informed. Honestly, I know many of you aren’t even reading this. Enjoy this moment.

Meanwhile, Henry is probably still dating his 19-year-old girlfriend Tara King. She’s literally a freshman in college. He’s 32 years old. They were first seen together last October, and the Daily Mail claims that they recently went on holiday together to New Zealand AND he took her home to Jersey to meet his family. Oh, Henry.

When British Superman actor Henry Cavill hitched up with teenage student Tara King, many eyebrows were raised over the 13-year age gap and whispers were soon spreading about how long the romance could possibly last. But I can reveal that not only are Henry, 32, and 19-year-old Tara still together, they are positively thriving, after three holidays together.

Their most recent break, to New Zealand, was during Tara’s reading week at university. It may well have been seen as unusual behaviour for a first-year student because, while most fellow undergraduates were knuckling down with their books, I gather Tara was excitedly sharing snaps of her journey to Wellington on social media app Snapchat.

The pair are clearly serious, and I hear that Henry – star of Man Of Steel and upcoming blockbuster Batman v Superman – has taken his girlfriend to meet his family in Jersey. While they were there, Henry posted a bizarre snap of Tara playfully squidging his man-of-steel cheeks.

‘A lot of people wondered if the relationship would last, but this shows it’s serious, despite the age difference,’ a friend of the actor tells me.

The New Zealand adventure came two weeks after Tara joined Henry in Jersey, where he was born. Two months before that, Henry took Tara to China.

[From The Daily Mail]

I’m including the Instagram of Tara squeezing his face below. I’m sure that’s her hand too. So, Superman is dating a 19 year old college freshman. And it’s gone from “just fun” to “quite serious” in a matter of months. I mean, he’s taking her out of school just so she can go to China with him? Planning holidays around her school schedule? No bueno.

When a selfie fails…but great to be back home in Jersey.

    Well… that’s creepy.

    Unless he really is just shuffling through beards, I guess.

    • xpresson says:

      Why does it have to be creepy??? My Father was 18 years older than my mother. They met when she was 20. They got married and had us kids and was all fine. Quite a normal, loving relationship that ended up being a family.

      • Sara says:

        Maybe your parents’ age difference worked for them, but can’t you see how the power imbalance here is huge? I mean she has to skip SCHOOL to travel with him.

      • Jenns says:

        I would side-eye any 38 year old who started dating a 20 year old.

        Glad it worked out for your parents though.

      • Kate says:

        Look, I’m happy it worked out for your parents but you need to let go of your instinct to be defensive to recognize that there is a massive power imbalance here. This man has a millionaire. And he’s from a wealthy family to start with. He has every privilege at his disposal. Yes, it’s creepy that a guy like this seemingly would prefer the company of a college freshman than a woman his own age. And this is a pattern bc his last girlfriend was 21. Do you not understand that there is a massive cultural problem with older men fetishizing younger women and rejecting women their own age? He is now part of the problem. He’s a creep.

      • Erinn says:

        Glad it worked out for your family – but that’s an exception not the rule. Generally – it is creepy. Grown men looking at women (or grown women looking at men) who are almost two decades their junior as a partner sends up red flags. Sometimes a younger partner is used to quantify how successful someone is, sometimes it’s about being powerful, sometimes it just is about two people who love each other. The tendency for these relationships to work isn’t all that high though. Keep in mind that this isn’t a normal couple – this is a college kid and a famous millionaire. That alone is a huge imbalance. ETA: This is exactly what Kate said previously.

      • AntiSocialButterfly says:

        My daughter will be a college freshman this fall, and if a 30 year old started sniffing around her door, you better believe the first thing I would do was to tell her to consider it a huge red flag.

        Glad things worked out for your family, though, and as many others have pointed out, your story is the exception to the rule.

      • MC2 says:

        My issue isn’t automatically their age difference but that coupled with how young she is. He started (publicly) dating her in October and she was one month out of her parents home! That’s gross for a man in his 30s to want. 19 is barely legal and still maturing & developing. If she was 30 & he was 48 I’d feel differently but creeping on a 19 year old in school is just gross.

      • lowercaselois says:

        I am glad that your parents worked out. I agree with many of the comments here there are red flags here. My niece is 25 years old, who just graduated with a masters degree and is getting her life going. She is dating a guy who is 38 years old. Even though it is only 13 years apart, there is unequal balance in the relationship. Our family is really really worried. The relationship is on his terms. It is all about his friends, his job, his schedule. He never comes to any of her family functions and she does not get invited to his. According to my niece he has a pattern of dating younger age women. She does not see anything wrong with that. When I hear this stuff it makes me think that he is insecure and emotionally young . They probably have a few things in common, but I think that is not enough.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Sure, some relationships with disparate age differences end up working out, but you have to ask yourself, what a man in his 30′s has in common with a teen-ager and if the answer is lust, that’s even worse. I don’t care about age gaps once they’re both over 25, but 19 is really young. Normally, I’d say it wreaks of insecurity and a need to control, but in this particular case, I’m convinced she’s a beard, so none of it matters.

      • Cupcake says:

        Your parents are the exception that proves the rule. If my 20-year old daughter decided to marry a man nearly twice her age I would be very sad for her. I would try express it appropriately and then drop it because I would not want to ruin my relationship with her but my heart would hurt for her.

        As for Henry Cavill… just gross.

    • t.fanty says:

      It feels like it’s just crossing the like from “you’re not a frat boy any more, bro,” to “eew, hello, Leo” territory.

      Welcome to the Pervy Posse, Henry

    • Naya says:

      I read a comment here a few weeks ago noting that the bearding strategy these days is to strive for douche bro cred. So basically dating girls barely out of their teens, cycling through model types et cetera. So who even knows what this is.

      • Liv says:

        Really? Crazy. Then again what’s more believable then a douche who goes through women like that, right? With some people like Bradley Cooper and Cavill you hope that they are gay so that you don’t have to hate them for their taste in women. ;-)

      • Erinn says:

        It’d make sense, Naya. It fits in with the fratty kind of cred that these guys want.

      • NGBoston says:

        LOL@ striving for ‘douche bro cred’.

        hahahah

      • CornyBlue says:

        Yes. There is a dude in my uni who used to aggressively catcall and be this all out douche and he came out like a month ago. He said he did it to escape scrutiny.

      • MC2 says:

        Yeah, but if he was “bearding” then I think he would pick a woman more accepted by the masses. I think he would shoot for higher then just turned 19. A model maybe but I don’t think he would date this barely a woman person. Also- why do people always go for the “he must be gay & bearding” for good looking men in Hollywood. I really don’t get it & it seems weird to me. It strikes me as on the fence of homophobia or in some relation to it. Like a man who is gorgeous, into his body, in Hollywood & dresses nice must be gay! Travolta- there is smoke there but Cruise, Cooper, Cavill, many others- I have never heard about any gay lovers coming out or anything. It’s just some weird thing people get into thinking & making assumptions about.

      • Boston Green Eyes says:

        I think dating a closeted Hollywood star must be the new way for young, attractive girls to pay off college tuition. Instead of going the egg donation/surrogate mother thing.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        You all are going to beat me for this, but if she is a beard, and I think she is, what I find unbeleivable is that out of all the women in the U.S. and abroad, this is who he chose either as a legit girlfriend or a beard? I mean, aside from youth, she is average. I googled pictures of them and she isn’t built particularly well. She has a somewhat above average face. Honestly, that’s what I find suspicious about it. Call me shallow. Call me mean, but seriously, out of the all the women in the world, this is the one. I don’t beleive it.

  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    He has the hairiest stomach I’ve ever seen and I’m not sure how I feel about it. It’s like his pubic hair is on steroids. I AM sure how I feel about a 32 year old man dating a college freshman, though. Ew.

  3. popodamofo says:

    Andy why can’t he have a thriving relationship with someone his own age??? This is giving me flashbacks of swifty with that schwarzenegger kid. On another note though, my body is attracted to his body. That man is HOT

    • INeedANap says:

      I think men go after younger women like that because that way they’re not challenged, and can essentially do whatever they want because the girl doesn’t know any better. I know I put up with nonsense in relationships when I was younger because I didn’t recognize the nonsense for what it was, and I wouldn’t put up with the same now.

      Also women are decorative, dontcha know.

  4. Nancy says:

    Okay Kaley Cucoocoo I’ll give you some slack. 19 years old, okay Henry…..nice bod tho..

  5. Zapp Brannigan says:

    Does he ring up the school pretending to be her dad to bust her out of class Ferris Bueller style?

  6. Lurker says:

    The only thing that comes to mind when I think of this guy is “nothingburger”

    I know that was said about Katy Perry, but it just fits this guy to a tee.

  7. emmyb1608 says:

    On paper, this is a bit weird. I’m 32 and the thought of dating a 19 year old is alien to me (not that my Husband would allow it anyway, haha). However, in the photos she’s quite a hard looking 19, and if I didn’t know otherwise I’d have thought that she was closer to his age.

    • Velvet, Crushed says:

      I thought so, too. I also thought the same of Cuoco, who, while an age-appropriate partner, has always had grooming and aesthetic choices which make me think there is an element of compulsive self-destruction in her psyche. I know his pairing with Cuoco was as packaged a fake relationship as is possible in Hollywood, but I have to question his agreement to or selection of her. Whatever the outcome, I wish them all wellness.

    • coffeelover says:

      That is exactly my thought too. When I saw the pics at the rugby game I was thrilled that the chick was around his age. Then I read she was 19, I was flabbergasted.

  8. Snowflake says:

    Thanks for the picture! Yum yum! Can’t blame the girl, he’s hot and rich. He’s a little skeevy for getting with a 19 yr old though

  9. CharlotteCharlotte says:

    This makes me think I should really take a trip back home to Wellington. Been gone… Over 12 years. Wow. Time flies.

  10. Esther says:

    “Posting this pic to set myself a minimum goal.”
    lol! like “my dog played with my phone and it went off in this second how funny”

  11. Adrien says:

    Yuck, Henry Cavill! That woman just turned legal last year. Nope. Didn’t he date someone same age as this girl? The hunter chick who posted a picture of her “conquest”, a dead animal?

  12. Dorothy#1 says:

    Im sure she has an “old soul”. Lol

  13. iseepinkelefants says:

    The age difference is bizarre. Being around his age, 29, it thoroughly creeps me out when Uni guys hit on me. I feel like a cradle robber. Even knowing my boyfriend is 24 makes me feel a bit pedo. She even still has a very round face too which is even grosser. The fact that he has to plan around her university schedule skeeves me out. Gross, gross, gross.

  14. Sabrina says:

    I’m kind of surprised that they’re still together. I would have thought that his management & PR team would have told him to dump her already. However since promotion for Batman vs Superman is not yet in full force there is still time. I would still be very surprised if she shows up to the film premiere with him.

  15. SamiHami says:

    I want to object to this so much–the age difference is awful! But I’d be a hypocrite, since when I was 19 I dated a 31 year old man. We were together (off and on) for two years. Now I can totally understand why my parents were horrified. Looking back, there was no way they could have broken us up–you know how headstrong teenagers “in love” can be–but i would freak if I had a daughter that age and she dated someone that much older.

    Actually, I did freak when my 18 year old niece decided to marry a man even older than that; he was 37 when they got married. Now, years later, they are divorced and it turns out she was the awful person, not him.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Are you me? My 18 year old niece just married a 36 year old dufus. She’s a high maintenance princess and he’s a semi employed dead beat who lives just for her. It’s a twisted scenario because the power dynamic is entirely in her favor, but I still feel sad that she’s wasting her youth playing adult with this guy (even though he’s hardly an adult). It’s obvious to everyone she’s going to get bored and dump him at some point. It’s just wrong all around.

  16. Sarah01 says:

    In that pic above they look good together, I wouldn’t have thought the age difference is 13 years.

  17. missskitttin says:

    She is very like “square”. Very muscled. She looks like a bottom tier cheerleader. Like a young Teresa Giudice. She also looks young and inexperienced, like 19 year old should look. He probably has control issues.

  18. Tig says:

    I enjoyed Man from UNCLE, so there is that. However, what arrested development is going on here for a 32 year old man to be hanging out with a 19 year old? At least she’s in college I guess. And so agree with the “old soul” comment above-sure she does.

  19. manta says:

    Give it time Cavill.Everyone will forget this and maybe like Neeson who, at 35, dated a 19 year old Julia Roberts, you’ll become some darling for the vast majority of women.
    They’ll even cheer for your coupling with someone 3 or 4 decades younger, like the poster did yesterday.

  20. Crumpet says:

    Need a little attention Harry? What’s the matter, your girl not enough of a ‘cheerleader’ for you?

  21. Kate says:

    He’s a beautiful man but I’m sorry..:this guy is a total creep. It pains me to say it bc I do think he’s gorgeous and I actually think he could be a great Superman with a less dour and brighter leadership at place for the franchise. But personally…I just really don’t have a ton of respect for him. His gf before her was what…21? So this is a pattern. Look, I’m 32 years old. He’s my age. If this man cannot find a woman his own age to date—given all the women he must meet—then there is something wrong with him. This girl is barely out of high school. The power imbalance here is massive. Massive. If she were 25, I could defend it but I can’t when she’s this young and he’s this famous and has all the power. There is something wrong with him that he is drawn to girls this young. It’s gross. Maybe he’s threatened by successful women. Maybe he’s threatened by women his own age…I don’t know. But he has a problem. This is not a good look for him. Sorry, Henry. You are beautiful but as your peer…I’m disgusted by you.

  22. Yelp says:

    I find it weird that “Henry’s friend” is talking to the media. Much in the same way I find it weird that the girl has family connections to OKMagazine and that’s who broke the story back in October.

    Just think how intelligent he must be….

    • Kate says:

      I can’t figure out if he’s truly stupid or just so insanely immature that he doesn’t know how to act like an adult. He’s notorious for being wasted off his a** in bars and clubs and hooking up with randons. I have nothing against a little partying but this guy is a borderline alcoholic. He’s got issues.

      • Sochan says:

        I’m convinced he has maturity issues and self-esteem issues. I think internally he’s still a chubby, insecure 13-year old boy who thinks scoring a girl like Tara King or even Gina Carano is majorly punching above his weight (instead of the other way around). I think Kaley Cuoco had a genuine crush on him, and was genuinely excited to meet and date him – but I think she figured him out real quick. That’s why they only lasted two weeks.

  23. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    NINETEEN? Nope.

    That’s just ridiculous, also I understand what a tough role it can be for a parent wanting to protect your kids from stupidity and knowing if you do they could just attach harder BUT

    If a 32 y/o famous actor who looked like that showed up to my 19 y/o daughter’s house (or MY house) I would summon every inch of the mortal strength passed down celestially to all humans to kick his ass so hard that all dogs would lift their heads baffled at the high pitched sound of a douchebag flying at super sonic speeds.

    The. Hell.

  24. M.A.F. says:

    HOLD UP! You mean to tell me college students in the UK get a freaking week off from their classes to read their damn books?! While the rest have to figure out how to cram a 1,000 + boring ass book on the witch hysteria in Europe in 2 weeks? (I was really excited for that book and it turned out to be 900 pages too long & it was not written by a historian).

    I knew I should have gone to college in London.

  25. Alex says:

    The age difference is just yuck. As a freshman in college I was just finding my footing as an independent person. I just moved away from home for the first time. What in the world does a 32 yr old have in common with a person in that stage of life? Ridiculous

    • nobzerver says:

      In the old days there were far less single women in their 30s/40s then there are now, so a lot of men went after younger girls because that’s what was available. Things are different now, almost equal. If a man in his 30s dates a teenager he’s a youth chaser and she’s a gold digger, at least that’s how most people view it.

  26. Jessie says:

    I really dont care about this guy. Sure he’s pretty but he lacks something.Stiffest guest I ever saw on graham Norton. He seemed very boring. The 19 year old college freshman thing is just creepy.

  27. candy says:

    Listen… I dated a guy 23 years older when I was 22. Back then I was like ‘age is just a number’ blah blah, but now looking back… Hell no! Age is not just a number! There is something seriously wrong with a guy who wants to go out with someone that much younger. I can totally see now that this guy had the mentality of an early 20 boy child. I learned a lot dating someone that much older and I wasted so many years on this loser. No matter how one justifies it, it is wrong because people in their 40s are in such a different place then people in their 20s and what I failed to see at the time is if someone is dating someone that much younger, why can’t they get someone their own age? Because they are F***ed up.

    So whenever I see these huge age discrepancies, red flag pervert

    • mp says:

      lol have you ever noticed the people who say, “Age is just a #” are 99% of the time are

      a) young ‘uns trying to tell someone there’s no mommy/daddy issues

      b) an old person explaining why dating young keeps you young/nothing weird about them.

      Yes, there are always exceptions to the rule, but no, that doesn’t mean it’s not weird a lot of the time.

      (And I hope that doesn’t sound judgy to you candy, it’s my experience….obvi age don’t mean jack when it comes to maturity and I’m glad you figured it out to get the heck out!!!)

  28. Robin says:

    He may also be a service dog faker. He puts a service dog vest on his dog and takes him in the cabin on airliners. Obviously not all disabilities are visible, but I wonder what his reason is for having a service dog? Or at least a dog he claims is a service dog.

  29. insertwittynamehere says:

    It’s not just that whole age thing.(but yeah that’s creepy) What the hell does this girl have going for her? A $100 monthly allowance from mummy and dada? A couple people brought up a good point as well with the power dynamic. He has complete control because she has absolutely nothing to bring to the table other then “sex”. It’s feeding his ego, which as a couple other people have pointed out leads me too also believe there is something not right with him in the head. He’d rather hang out with a bunch of teenagers rather then the company of his age bracket. And from the looks of this article it would appear he puts his own needs ahead of this “thriving” teen. Pulling her from school repeatedly to accompany him on his business trips. I would think a man of his age would actually care and/or want his “other half” to actually get an education. Seems selfish if you ask me. So what it all boils down too is Ego, Selfish, Creepy and flat out weird. Good Job Superman!

  30. CornyBlue says:

    Cavill really likes being the pretty one in relationships. Also what kind of parents let their 19 year old drop out of college to follow a dude around?

  31. The New Classic says:

    His hairline is receding so badly, whenever I look at him now it’s all I see. Also, he’s been looking so rough and booze bloated lately I don’t know how they’ll ever get him whipped into shape enough to do another superhero movie. His looks are pretty much the only thing he’s got going for him, he really should take better care of himself.

  32. Juliet says:

    Interesting how both articles refer to her as a Teen – I doubt he’s taking advantage of her – she got that fake orange tan hoe glow going on- with the bad bottle blond dye job- reminds me of sugar babies looking for sugar daddies…she’s looking for a payout and found a cash cow- way to go superman

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      She IS a teen. And there’s an imbalance of power there. She might be using him for whatever, but that doesn’t absolve him of being a creeper.

    • MinnFinn says:

      Juliet – Posters above are saying her parents have money so she may be getting her bottle-blond look at a salon. Case in point is Paris Hilton’s hair color for several years was what my stylist calls porn-star blond.

      And I agree that he’s sleazy for going for a 19 yr old and that many posters may be overestimating the power imbalance.

    • Original T.C. says:

      I think it’s hilarious that everyone hated the ad about the Dad following his daughter on her date to make sure he wasn’t a creep. Saying that women can make their own decisions about who to date and have good judgement.

      Now this thread is all about the poor girl who obviously is being taken advantage of but doesn’t know it. Poor weak minded girl. Oh and why aren’t her parents stepping in to separate their baby from this old monster.

      Women in their 20′s, 30′s and even 40′s make mistakes in picking guys all the times. Teens don’t have it covered. Any relationship he has with a regular woman will not be balanced in terms of power.

      • Stick to it says:

        @ Original T.C.

        In terms of money you might be right. He is the rich millionair and the regular woman is probably not. Nevertheless the regular woman his age has a better chance of having enough maturity in order to not get run over by her partner.

        But in terms of maturity you are wrong. This 19-years-old hasn’t even finished her education and Cavill apparently doesn’t support her education if he takes her out of school for a fun vacation. That kind of power imbalance can not be justified.
        It is creepy.

  33. Sochan says:

    Her age aside (which is bad enough): he has horrible taste in women. He seems to like them looking very cheap. This girls looks like she’s channeling some cheap American reality star. It makes me wonder how Henry views himself internally.

  34. vanessa says:

    this is so lame, like i don’t know what else to say

  35. Joanie says:

    Well this is really interesting…when he was in his early 20s and not famous, he dated older women almost exclusively. And I mean women into their late 40s. So he’s obviously comfortable with an age difference, he’s just flipped it now that he’s a public figure.

  36. Delta Juliet says:

    I think they missed the boat by not casting him as Christian Grey.

  37. spidey says:

    You do realise that he is not a real person don’t you? He is really a cardboard cutout.

  38. Pandy says:

    “Tell me about your senior prom again Darling. I’m fascinated”.

  39. OhDear says:

    Ick. Also, sigh. He was so so so so so pretty before, now he’s a mess.

    Why are all these pretty men turning into hot messes lately?

  40. Patty says:

    The girlfriend looks like Nicole Eggert (?) from Charles in Charge and Baywatch.

  41. Betti says:

    I look at her and think he’s dating Chelsy Davy! Not sure if its bearding (thou he does ping my gaydar) but when you date someone almost half your age its either a sign of a mid life crisis or shows a lack of emotional maturity i.e. he maybe 35 (or whatever) but has the emotional age of a 20 yr old student.

  42. JenniferJustice says:

    Okay. These are my thoughts. First, he is beyond beautiful. Now that that’s out of the way: 1) I think he is gay; 2) I think these “girlfriends” are beards, but 3) they are not paid for contractual beards, but simply young niave girls who don’t see the signs and think they really are the one for him.

    Think about it, isn’t a 19 year old college student the perfect relationship for a man who isn’t ready to come out yet? He has all his time to himself to do his real thing and then trot her out on special weekends, holidays and vacations to make a good show of it. Purely speculation, but this is the only thing that makes sense to me.

  43. Emily C. says:

    It’s the Daily Mail. I’ll wait for confirmation from an actual source before having an opinion.

  44. ell says:

    i hope straight women commenting here realise that only gay people have gaydar…

    imo, this dude is just gross and straight, not gay at all.

  45. Betti says:

    Well ladies. something to clear the palette. A new High Rise trailer is out and features an almost naked Tom Hiddleston, sunbathing with nothing but a book to protect little Tom from sunburn.

    *sips on wine waiting for the stampede over to YouTube*

  46. Carol says:

    Eh. My bro’s fiance is 15 years younger than him. She’s 26 and he’s 41. Although she is very sweet and we all like her, I still think the relationship is pretty creepy. Their maturity level meet at her level which is pretty weird since my bro is 40. I don’t get those kinds of relationships. But if it works, I guess it doesn’t matter what I think.

    But still….19 years old! That’s just creepy.

  47. Navigator says:

    I find this whole thing hilarious because not two months before he took up with this trick he said in an interview he was on the lookout for “someone his own age with a career.” Besides that, however, this is anything BUT hilarious. He just comes across as gross and sad, she as either an opportunist user or a naive little fool. I don’t think she really gives a damn about her education, despite how the media makes “college student” the indicator of her identity. In fact, in appearance and actions she reminds me of so many privileged girls I knew in college who were only there because it was a social opportunity, a boredom reliever, or just something they did because they “should.” Then, as soon as a better, easier opportunity came along, i.e. A wealthy, connected partner, they dropped it and showed their true priorities and intentions. Her tabloid connections really skeeve me out too, but REGARDLESS of her motives, shame on him. As someone who was also taken with an older man at a far too young age and is now paying the price, I can tell you that there is no excuse nor sound justification for this kind of relationship. Maturity doesn’t have a thing to do with it, they are objectively at different stages of life and personal development. He has no business interfering with her growth and exploration as a newly-minted adult, and I hope one of them wakes up to this before it gets too late for her. Add to that the gross power imbalance here, and you have a recipe for one, if not both, of them to get very, very hurt, one way or another.

      So on point you are! It’s that Essex County thing – the rumor is that most girls from that area are raised to bag rich guys. But she’s doing herself a disservice. As to him, there are no words to describe how low he’s gone. My prediction is he’ll get her pregnant and have to marry her or support her & their child for life, and rightfully so. Idiotic man that he is!

    Ugh. I’m his age and teach at a university. While 19 year olds are physically mature, they are not mentally full adults yet. Their brains are not done growing until 25, and it shows, especially in decision-making skills! I cannot imagine dating someone that age, due to the differences mentally. So gross.

    Young adults are more sheltered and given full childhoods these days, unlike in the past when kids had to start working the farm or such by 14-ish. School is a full-time priority, and even though these big age gaps may have worked for select couples in the past (cue “my parents are 50 years apart and they’re great!” comments), it’s really not acceptable this day in age. It has nothing to do with his age, or the gap. It’s about her being too young to be dating someone so much older.

    I know I’m preaching to the choir, but this just disgusts me. It’s really easy for an older man to mentally manipulate and take advantage of a younger girl. If I were her age, I would be so flattered by him, I would have felt very lucky to date him. But as an adult, I can say that it’s very wrong.

    bored. he’s a snooze fest. lol i bet she’s on his intellectual level.

    I wonder why Amy Adams really thinks about his creepy behavior. She was so complimentary towards him when Man of Steel dropped and did so much for him in terms of helping him seem like able and a “great guy.” And then he turned into…this. She’s too polite to bash him but one has to wonder what she really thinks of this train wreck. Affleck too. LOL. Bc he’s also a trainwreck. Imagine being Amy Adams–class act of Hollywood—and having to work with these losers.

    Do millennials only bring people home to meet the parents if they are LT relationship material?

  52. Crispy says:

    He’s not that hot. I hate guys (and women) who post topless (or bikini) pics of themselves on instagram. Granted, this is prob PR team work for him.

  53. What's inside says:

    I just can’t get with it — there is something really off with him and with this relationship.

  54. Zazz says:

    Well, wasn’t Beyonce 18 when she started dating Jay Z who was 30 ?

    Same with the late princess Diana and Prince Charles.

    My aunt too was 18 when she married her 31 years old husband.

    I m not especially for those type of relationship but i know for a fact that there are plenty of 18/20 years old females as or even more mature than many thirty years old men….especially outside of the Hollywood circle.

    Young successful college graduated are 21/22 years old and often more mature than most thirty years old actors/entertainers.

    Look at Kanye with his 12 years old maturity.

    • Stick to it says:

      If he takes her out of school then he rules the relationship and not her.

      And many many 19/20/21/22 years-old women are in relationships with older men for the perks: career and money. Those aren’t healthy relationships but merely business deals. Look at Robin Thicke and April Love Geary. Or Beyonce and Jay Z. Or Dicaprio. Or Woody Allen.
      Don’t admire them and call them out for what kind of relationship these people prefer.

      I can think of a few others-

      Catherine Deneuve had a son with Roger Vadim (Jane Fonda’s ex-husband) when she was 19 and he was 35. It raised a lot of eyebrows not due to the age difference, but b/c she refused to marry him.

      Bo Derek married John Derek when she was 19 and he was 49. They’d been having an affair for a few years before that.

      Elizabeth Taylor married Michael Wilding when she was 19 and he was 41 (her second marriage!)

      Tony Curtis married Christine Kaufman when she was 18 and he was 38.

      Natalie Wood, Tuesday Weld and Natasha Kinski were linked to lots of 30-something and 40-something guys when they were underage teen starlets.

      Demi Moore married her 1st husband when she was 17 and he was 30.

      Jerry Seinfeld had long-term relationship with that Shoshanna girl who was 17 when they started dating, he was 38.

    So many creepy people in the comments. Didn’t know that idea of age discrimination is so popular nowadays. Previously it was gay discrimination, but they managed to cure society from it.

  56. Samantha says:

    A thirteen year age gap is really nothing compared to those with anywhere from 25 to 40 years apart (like that old washed up pervert with the Filipino gilrfriend on the third season of 90 day fiancee) though I find that her being 19 is a little creepy as she just graduated high school almost a year ago. Personally however, I am 28 and being pursued by a 41 year old guy who ticks off some of the boxes as to what I’m looking for but I’m still apprehensive af about any kind of relationship occuring in the near or distant future given the age difference. Oh well, each to their own I guess!

  57. Jenny says:

    I am now convinced Cavill is gay because I do not want to think so badly of such a gloriously hairy man (drool) as him dating a teenager when he is in his thirties. That is just so gross and creepy. Please be a beard, please please please. And Cavill, please never shave your chest hair again!

  58. Stick to it says:

    I take issue that he took her out of school / uni for that. She has just started school / uni and if you miss out too much at the start then you will have problems. She needs to find friends at her school and he rips her out of that as well.

    I do believe that the relationship is entirely on his terms – if she misses school for him. I hope her parents put their feet down hard. On him.

    • Tired Henry Fan says:

      The problem is that her parents obviously are signed on to selling her daughter’s care to him. They are obviously on board as seen in the photo her sister released in December where they’re all gathered at a family dinner with him. It is said that girls from Essex county in England have a reputation for being raised to bag a rich man and not so much to get educated and self-supportive. If this is true, this teen bagged a big one and her parents are thrilled. The whole affair is disgusting, in my opinion.

  59. Tired Henry Fan says:

    I have accepted that he’s a lowlife jerk and she’s a gold digger teen. The part I can’t get over is his family. They seemed so upper class, sophisticated, smart, ethical, etc. Yet they seem to have accepted this relationship with open arms – his older brother Nik was with them on their “first publicized” date to the rugby game, his brother Charlie just got back from a trip to New Zealand & Australia with them and Henry’s bodyguard and the fact that Henry took her home to Jersey Island and probably introduced her to his parents and other brothers. It’s puts all of them, in my opinion, down many notches and just above the Kardashian clan at this point.

  60. Cat87 says:

    My parents were 17 years apart. My mom’s husband was almost two decades older BUT she was 30 when they met. Not a 19 year-old fresh out of high school and barely in college. They is something odd that he is taking her time away from school just to go on trips with him. So there is a control issue to which he will use on her.

    My bf and I are 4 years apart. I am the older one and I started dating him when he was 22. I don’t ever take away or distract him from the important things or responsibilities in his life. If anything I would encourage him to advanve and search for better opportunities. His mother also dated a man 11 years older but she was my age.

    19 is tough age, barely an adult and know nothing of the world. She’s just so young and he intentions seem misguided.
