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.
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.
