Henry Cavill & Gina Carano are done, now he’s dating Kaley Cuoco: what?!

Well, it looks like Gina Carano avoided all of those Man of Steel red carpets for a reason – she and Henry were no longer together!! For the love of God, this news is so depressing. Apparently, Henry and Gina were done in May. Which means that when Henry’s magazine interviews for Man of Steel were coming out last month – interviews in which he kept making casual mention of his “girlfriend” Gina – they were already done. And it gets worse. Henry has already moved on with another girl: Kaley Cuoco!!! What the hell? No, seriously, what the hell?

Henry Cavill’s love life just got super-charged with Big Bang’s babe! After his 10-month relationship with actress Gina Carano fizzled in May, the Man of Steel hunk, 30, is now dating Kaley Cuoco, sources reveal exclusively to Us Weekly. “They are totally hot for each other,” a pal says of the British actor and Big Bang Theory starlet, 27, who had recently split with musician Bret Bollinger when she and a Cavill first bumped into each other.

Although the movie and TV stars are keeping the romance hush-hush for now, Cuoco dropped a major hint to her 1.4 million Twitter followers June 14: Tweeting a photo of herself gazing adoringly at a Man of Steel poster, she urged her fans to see the mega-successful Superman reboot. “It’s fantastic in every way,” she raved.

For his part, Cavill is “a massive Big Bang Theory fan” and “has always wanted to date her,” another insider says. Cuoco’s past exes include addiction specialist Josh “Lazie” Resnik (they called off their engagement in March 2012) and her Big Bang costar Johnny Galecki — she and Galecki, 36, kept their two-year romance completely under wraps.

Adds a source of Cavill: “He’s excited to be dating her!”

[From Us Weekly]

No disrespect to Kaley – I’ve never had strong feelings about her either way – but how does this make any sense? Henry Cavill is a full-fledged movie star at long last. And now he’s tossed aside Gina Carano (who was interesting and sexy and compelling) for a standard-issue bubbly Hollywood blonde? I bet Ashley Greene is kicking herself right now – this was a missed opportunity, Ash. You could have been Henry Cavill’s official girlfriend. And not to get all elitist, but she’s JUST a TV Girl, and she’s not even on a good TV show, you know? It’s not like she’s on Mad Men. She’s on that stupid Big Bang Theory show. But yeah, I’m not going to hate on her too much. She seems like a nice person and she is cute, but I just hate the idea of Kaley with Henry. It’s like someone picked their names out of a hat.

This is pretty official too – People Mag has the same story, that Henry is now with Kaley. A source tells the mag, “They were both single and started dating recently… It’s just the beginning stages of a relationship and they’re having a great time.” Here’s my question: who is leaking this stuff? Kaley or Henry? I really don’t know.

    Kaley leaked it no doubt because mid June she tweeted a picture of her gazing upwards, mouth open, at a Superman poster.

    Also fun thing is that her character Penny dressed up as Wonder Woman for Halloween….

    • Elle says:

      Yep she leaked it. I hope he realises and bails!

      • Lillith says:

        Ofcourse its planned. The dude is G A Y. If anyone was in any doubt this confirms it. Gina was a studio set up based around the potential Wonder Woman film. Gina is no longer in contention for the role so why would they stick it?

        I like both Gina (unique, lovely) and Kaley (spanky but stuck on crappy mass TV show). But neither suit Henry, not unless they are tucking in some “equiptment” down below.

      • k says:

        Lillith is right

      • Latisse says:

        Yep. Pretty sure cavill is gay. Here is a datalounge link with pics of him and an openly gay guy (corey spears) who used to have a lot of pics of HC on his Facebook until they all disappeared before Man of Steel Promo circuit started…


      • Easy says:

        Latisse, the pics disappeared around the Tudor when the attention began to really build.

        And within a month he was engaged to Ellen.It was a mega surprise that they were even dating. They were engaged for 2 years and then very suddenly they were done and in under a month he was with Gina. Now we hear that Gina “cant handle his fame” and in under a month he is with a more generic and camera ready girl???

        He is the Rock Hudson of our generation. Hope hecomes out while the franchise is still running.

      • cute says:

        I saw that pics of Henry with his friends and are silly and stupid pics not gay pics IMHO

        And about he being gay or straight:


      • FLORC says:

        Of course Henry is Gay. Because he couldn’t possibly like Both Men an Women. That would be crazy!

        Can we give this a break guys? If anything he’s bisexual. Maybe he experimented with that guy he posed with that totally looks like drunk college friend photo poses. Cuoco is leaking it for sure because she needs attention and has an ego.

      • Easy says:

        I dont buy any of his opposite sex relationships. And especially not Gina anf Kaley. So no I dont think he is bi. Henry Carvill=Rock Hudson hopefully without the tragic death. Rock was smarter with his bearding operation though.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        So if you are a guy, and you are friends with a gay guy…you are automatically gay?

        Who cares if he is or not!
        I think only when people stop trying to “out” people, will it ever stop being a big deal. Take the bounty off their heads, please.

      • FLORC says:

        Well, no one has been able to bring forth any real proof of him being gay. Only assumptions and their over the internet “gaydar”. All i’ve seen is a photo with him with a guy. And in that photo another guy is cut out it looks like. Just a group of friends posing it seems.

        I’m going to need more than a cropped photo to think this argument holds any water.

        And hudson had goons to beat up anyone that caught him with another man. Cavill can’t battle the internet. If it’s true he’s now heavily followed by paps. He’ll get caught if he is gay, but until that day he’s bi at best. The rest is just assumptions without evidence.

      • Anna says:

        Cavill is not gay though.

        The guy that he was photographed with is Corey Spears and openly gay actor.

        To begin with,having gay friend does not mean that someone is gay.
        Second of all,Corey had a boyfriend long before he met Henry.They let Henry sleep in their couch when Henry first came in LA and had no money.Corey and the other guy are still together.

        Also,why would Henry make Corey delete every photo that can be used as evidence
        fir Henry being gay and then invite him to the Man of Steel premiere along with Corey’s boyfriend?If WB,Henry or his PR team were afraid of anything “gay ” they would not allow Corey to attend the party or post pics afterwards.

        In connslution,there are two blind items that both of them are obviously pointing to Henry.

        One of the was saying tha this up and coming actors hardly has control over his private life.He wanted to propose to his girlfriend but the studio that produces his movie said that he can either be a movie star or be a husband,The guy eventually stick with his grirlfriend BUT postponed the proposal

        The second is coming from a girl that was friends (or something like that with Corey’s boyfriend).Anyway the guy started dating Corey and after a while they were leaving together.Occasionaly they would let this “very handsome,very straight” guy from the Tudors sleep in their couch.

    • Liv says:

      Come on, it’s obvious now. It’s PR. I don’t think he would speak so much about a new girlfriend in interviews when he would be serious about her.

      They probably planned to get rid of Carano when the hype starts and now he has a blonde, which will probably not last long, so that he can be “free” for his fans.

      The PR move to feed US Weekly and People with infos is obvious.

      • commonsense says:

        comic-con is in 3 weeks.. he needs a nerd friendly gf to appeal to his fangurls/fanboys.
        “they have the hots for each other”
        “he is excited to be dating her”
        did kaleys publicists 12yr old daughter call this in to us weekly?? why not just say OMG u guys

      • Liv says:

        Makes sense.

    • NM9005 says:

      Jup. It’s weird because she managed to keep her other relationships pretty low profile. With her co-star, they never leaked anything, nobody even knew for 2 years!

      Then again, who cares abot Cuoco anyway? She’s on TV, she doesn’t matter, sad truth. She’s hot and is on funny shows, that’s about all that matters in her case.

      To be honest, this is par of the course for HC, now that he’s a moviestar, you need to go up. I’m sure therer’s going to be someone more famous than Cuoco in a year or less until in a few years, conditioned by Hollywood and their ridiculous standards, will find his perfect match in a moviestar too.
      Cuoco is at least more recognisable and accessible (feminine, looks wise) for people to accept her as HC’s girlfriend. Another sad truth.

    • Vee says:

      I’m not sure she leaked it. Check out Henry’s board on IMDB. They were on this Kaley thing over a week ago.

      • commonsense says:

        oh..they both share the same pr firm viewpoint..pr contract in place in time for comic-con 4show..pr setup being sniffed out in 3 secs ..no one is buying this.. that’s why its “random”..same power publicists..

    • Jimena says:

      I saw those pics and are stupid not gay, at least not from him LOL https://picasaweb.google.com/HWDCGallery/RandomHenry#

      those pics were way ago from Ellen Whitaker, you can see the difference on Henry’s body and face, he looks like a baby and when he was with Ellen he was different.

      and… don’t you think Ellen would talk if he ‘is gay’? REVENGE! LOL She has the status and support to be believed but she didn’t say anything bad against him.

  2. Sixer says:

    Y’know, I generally get my teeth set right on edge when every other latest thing actor gets accused of being in the closet, but um… this Henry stuff is getting silly now. Even my reluctant gay nose is sniffing.

    • Lucretia says:

      Same suspicion, same reluctance to suspect, but this is transparent, and therefore causes one to wonder why the strenuous effort is being expended here. Just to be practical about it: when in the past month or so of publicizing Superman would this great new romance have had a chance to bloom?

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Yeah I’m usually in the same boat as you but this is just…..pretty fishy.

      • Tiffany27 says:

        Hey TOK!!! I’m still loving Boston :)

        As for Henry, I personally think the man is as exciting as a loaf of stale bread so I didn’t really care about him and Gina and I don’t care about him with this girl either…….. I do, however, feel like something fishy is going on as well. He has been busy promoting MOS for the past like 5 weeks. When did they have the time to meet and how/why is it already SO important that it becomes a confirmation through People Magazine? THEY JUST MET!!!

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I was wondering what happened to you!
        Are you still loving The Bean?

        There’s a commenter around here named just “Tiffany”. I started to wonder if you two were one and the same…

        Yeah I feel exactly the same as you about Cavill. He just seems so vanilla. Too serious and boring.
        I’m also forever reminded about his comment about him not liking aggressive women. He and I would never get along ;)

      • Tiffany27 says:

        Yes!!! That comment rubbed me all the way wrong!!! I’m excited to be exploring my first summer in Boston!

    • Latisse says:

      Said this earlier up thread but just wan to post link to pic as well. HC used to have a lot of pics taken of him with Corey Spears who happens to be gay. CP had a lot of pics of HC on his Facebook, all of which mysteriously disappeared before MOS promo started. Below is one of the pics:


      • Vee says:

        Lol. You are wrong.

      • Justsayin9 says:

        Henry has gay friends….so what? THat is very European and common among actors.

        Corey was asked in the past, before Henrys fame, if he was gay and he said Henry is straight.

        He is cool enough to have gay friends and that should be enough.

      • magpie says:

        Even if he was gay, I doubt he’d hit Corey. They are so not in the league looks wise.

  3. marie says:

    wow, random.. she’s cute but.. it’s really, really random..

    “he’s excited to be dating her” who the f-k says that? are we sure he wouldn’t be more excited dating Jim Parsons?

    • Chloeeee says:


      • V4Real says:

        +2 I’m so starting to believe there is truth to the gay rumors. Maybe that’s why he does nothing for me. Then again I am completely turned on by Matt Bomer so maybe it’s just Cavill. He seems so bland.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I used to always confuse Bomer and Cavill.

        Yeah it’s hard to not come to the conclusion that these chicks are just convenient beards.

    • ncboudicca says:

      Tee hee.

    • Mairead says:

      He never pinged my gaydar – but then again I never saw him being interviewed

    • Tanguerita says:


    • Marcus says:

      Marie: Whats that supposed to mean? If he is gay and not saying anything its his choice.

      • marie says:

        there was nothing meant by the comment. it was a joke directed at him being “excited” to date Kaley. I could personally care less if he’s gay, straight or bi-it won’t stop me from seeing Superman..

        it was a joke, no reason to get offended. (plus Jim Parsons is in a loving relationship already)

    • Mouse says:

      I don’t think it’s that random…Kaley and Helen look similarish and both are into horses. Maybe this is his type?

  4. notpretentious says:

    I know, I read this last night. WTH!!

  5. Spooks says:

    I like her. And BBT is (or was) a good show. Jim Parsons seems better suited for him, though.

    • drea says:

      The first 2, maybe 3, seasons of The Big Bang Theory were pretty funny. And then it’s like they ran out of material or they sold out and became an Emmy-bait show.

      Kaley’s cute. She never rubbed me the wrong way, but now I’m not quite sure how to look at her. I don’t know if Henry really is gay or bi, but this new “relationship” is just weird, right? Although, I must say, she does look a little bit like his ex-fiance, I think.

    • GeeMoney says:

      She was annoying as hell on the last season of Charmed. Just saying.

      • drea says:

        I almost forgot she was in Charmed! Yeah, she was kind of annoying there, but I blame that on the show. If I remember correctly, the last season was a big mess and her character was totally unnecessary.

  6. Lb says:

    Downgrade. Yes that makes me bitchy. Don’t care. Downgrade.

    • Holly says:

      Yeah, no two ways about it, downgrade.

      I think there have been a lot of “articles” this year about Kaley becoming a gym rat, but-child please!-Gina literally is an ass kicker.

      It’s a super fast downgrade too… perhaps Kaley’s going to have egg on her face when this rebound crashes and burns?

      • Andrea says:

        Kaley is a super talented female comedian with a great personality.

        It’s not a downgrade to me. She’s funny. Carano was always so monotone.

        She probably makes him laugh. It’s not always about looks, people. Geez.

      • Lb says:

        When did I say it was about looks? Upgrade to you maybe but I’m entitled to my own opinion.


      • Dutch says:

        Guy rule of dating, never date a woman who can kick your ass. Probably why Cavil bailed

      • c'est la vie says:

        She was probably too “aggressive” or “assertive” for him.

    • Lucy2 says:

      That was my first thought too. I always found her cute but not really pretty, and she definitely has a much different career path than he does. Seems like an odd pairing.
      I also find it very weird that all of this is coming out now, when both have been very private in the past.

      • Andrea says:

        Well and Kaley is on a show that is owned by WB and associated with DC Comics.

        So again….there is a fishy PR angle to this that is hard to deny even though I think Kaley is funny.

    • SamiHami says:

      And even if it were about looks, Kaley wins on that score as well. She is beautiful.

      I don’t get why people are bashing her. She is attractive and talented, and from interviews I’ve read she seems to be very grounded and down to earth. Plus she has her own successful career. Why wouldn’t a guy want to date her? (okay, some of her fashion choices are a little iffy, but that’s not the worst thing in the world. At least she’s not afraid to take risks!)

      • OhDear says:

        Considering how pretty *he* is, any girlfriend he has will be nitpicked (at least by a certain subset of his fans).

      • Joanna says:

        because they like the idea of the other girl, because she’s more like the typical american woman so it makes normal women feel better. because they see someone built like them who is with a famous star. where the other girl is more typical hollywood gf. but i like her, i love big bang theory! rather watch that the mad men

      • Nerd Alert says:

        Disclosure: I think all these relationships with HC are fake, but wrote this as though they’re real.

        I agree. Kaley has a personality at least, she’s funny, and was good on BBT until they made her character so…bitchy. Like Joanna, I think people like the idea of Gina Carano because she’s more accessible than KC. I do prefer GC’s body type, but I think KC has a better personality; she’s fun and smart.

        I never clicked on the Cavill/Carano posts after awhile because they were SO BORING. He’s boring, she’s boring, and they were boring^2 together. Beautiful, sure. But empty-vessel meatheads IMO.

        Obviously I’m a nerd and I like the BBT because the comic stuff and science (physics, YAY!) stuff is right up my alley, but that’s not even why I’m defending her. She’s the worst thing on that show, and the show has gone downhill for sure, but I just can’t with boring, dumb women. Also, I’ve been watching both BBT and Mad Men since the beginning and BBT has my vote. Even if it makes my celebitchy friends mad ;)

    • TQB says:

      I actually love Kaley, but I agree: downgrade. Mostly because the whole things just screams PR and they both deserve better.

      • Lauren says:

        I love Kaley on BBT. She has done very well, considering she was also a child star. As for Henry, maybe he is bisexual-don’t care. His Ex looks masculine to me. Kaley is so damn funny on BBT, and is underrated because of her blond bombshell sexiness. Just let them be.

    • hadleyb says:

      How is it a downgrade? Because she’s blonde? She’s only on tv?

      I don’t get all the hate, if he were all of a sudden with Gwen P ( if she was single ) I could see the hate because she is a Biztch but Kaley? Harmless.

      Is he only suppose to date brunettes? Only movie stars? There are even trashy movie stars who are brunettes out there.

  7. LoriM says:

    I think Kaley has a strong resemblance to Henry’s ex-fiance’, Ellen Whitaker…

    • Toot says:

      She does. That look may be his type.

    • Magneticfieldz says:

      Whoa. Kinda creepy how similar.

    • GiGi says:

      Wow! That was worth a google – definitely a strong resemblance.

    • Amelia says:

      Blimey. Holy dopplegangers, Batman!
      Funnily enough, I heard that Kaley is a keen horse rider too.
      *Twilight zone theme*

    • Tessa says:

      OMG, they’re practically the same person! Is it possible a “source” saw him with Ellen and mistook her for Kaley? They’re so so similar looking. They could be twins, it’s that uncanny.

      • Sleepy says:

        It’s interesting you say that because when I read about this over the weekend on a blog this was a theory. I don’t have the link at the moment but it seemed to be based on a tweet of someone seeing him at the Chateau Marmont (don’t know if I spelled that right) the same day he landed back in LA with a person that looked like Kaley. But according to same blog Kaley was believed to be in NY…. So they thought maybe it was his ex. They do look a lot alike.

        I actually think Kaley is endearing and I like BBT. Her personality seems a contrast to his though, if it’s true. Who knows.

    • LAK says:

      Me too. As I was scrolling down,my first thought was the physical resemblance.

      So glad I wasn’t the only one thinking it.

      Kaley may be just a TV girl, but she’s super successful in terms of constant work in successful shows. It feels like she’s been on my TV for the past 10years without a break.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      She totally does! Creepy.

    • drea says:

      Haha, I just said this in another comment before I read yours. Good to know I’m not imagining things.

    • drdoolittling says:

      Wow! I just googled her and thought it was a photo of Kaley. That is eerie.

  8. mkyarwood says:

    Uhhh. He’d be better off going with his real sexuality, if he is gay. ANYONE would be hotter than Kaley Cuckoo.

  9. Shelley says:

    I’m all for him dating Kaley. She is cute and harmless. I’m sorry to say Gina is not any more talented or relevant than Kaley.
    …and errrm Big Bang is a way bigger hit than Mad Men. It hasn’t been touted as the new Friends for nothing.

    • Shaz says:

      Thank you!

    • Valerie says:

      Yes, thank you! Kaley is one of my girl crushes even though I don’t watch Big Bang Theory that often. She’s sweet, beautiful, down-to-earth and funny. She also loves animals and rides horses, like I do. So I actually like this couple.

      • Wellsie says:

        I am not a Big Bang fan, but I’ve always liked Kaley. I think she has good timing. I was just saying the other day she would do a great job as an awards show host à la NPH, but I don’t know if she can sing.

        However… I get the PR vibe from this as well. Aw well, that’s the industry I suppose.

    • shruti says:


      Mad Men caters to only a select few, but TBBT ratings are CRAZY! The show is amazing; you should totally try it. Even though I do not like Kaley’s character much on the show, I think she’s way more mainstream than Gina Carano

    • Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

      I agree. I like Kaley and BBT. I have never heard of Gina except as Henry’s girlfriend. But every time I hear Gina Carano’s name, I think, “Wait, Gia Carangi, the model who died of AIDS and was played by Angelina back in the day?”

    • Erinn says:

      Ugh, I don’t watch Mad Men, but BBT is awful.

      When it started I watched every episode. It’s just so degrading against actually nerdy people; it’s extremely patronizing. A lot of their nerd references aren’t even correct. It solidifies the stereotype that nerds are pitiful and that women definitely laugh at the idea of comic books and super heroes, and are only portrayed as the objects of desire.

      All Leonard ever does is whine and squint. Penny just drinks and gets confused over her relationship.

      High ratings do not make a show good. EG: Two and a Half Men. Chuck Lorre is extremely capable of pumping out stuff for the masses, but it doesn’t make it good.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I agree. It’s a terrible show. I do like Kaley though and I disagree with others who say she’s untalented.

      • Erinn says:

        Agreed OKitt. Some of the problem is that she ends up in roles where she’s kind of stuck. I have seen her in interviews however, and she’s incredibly amusing, and upbeat. I think she could carry a show on her own, I’d just like to see her in a role different than Penny or Bridgette from 8 Simple Rules. She needs something outside of “the pretty girl”.

      • BeesKness says:

        Totally agree. Good ratings do not equal quality. I cannot stomach BBT but I pretty much loathe all sitcoms lately and stick to the comedy on FX like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League and Louie.

      • Esmom says:

        Mad Men and BBT shouldn’t be mentioned in the same sentence, they have no similarities whatsoever. I can imagine that someone who likes BBT wouldn’t like MM and vice versa.

      • Malificent says:

        I disagree that it’s patronizing to nerds — the nerds are in on the joke. Plus, they’re too busy controlling most of the First World to worry about their prime-time image.

        And I like BBT and MM — why would one have to choose? I’m not a genre snob in my books or my shows. If it makes me laugh or keeps me interested, I’m going to watch.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        @Bees-ASIP is my FAVORITE :)

        I think that’s exactly it though-humor is SO subjective. I LOVE the self-referential style of humor in a show like ASIP.

        I also think that, GENERALLY speaking (I’m sure there are exceptions), people who find ASIP hilarious would probably not find BBT funny and vice-versa. It’s ok-we don’t all have to like the same things! ;)

      • Erinn says:


        The nerds AREN’T in on the joke though. Not the ‘real’ ones. I spend my days building and fixing code on websites. I work with mainly men, who live, eat, and breathe nerd culture. The ones who do that don’t find the show funny. They find it insulting.

        The people who identify with the show the most seem to be the kind of people who are like “Oh I LOVE Dr. Who – I’m totally a nerd- look I have glasses”.

        I’m not saying nobody should like the show. I’m just saying that to me, it is NOT a quality show.

        And IASIP is amazing. Definitely one of my all time favorites.

      • Nerd Alert says:

        I don’t know. IMO, I really don’t think it’s insulting to nerds at all. Every comic geek and scientist I know at least appreciates the show (they hire physicists to vet the science part, the equations and facts are accurate on that front), and liked the first few seasons. Kaley’s character sucks, though, and it’s all recycled now. I would be in the boat of people who watches both shows, but I won’t be watching either next season. Mad Men was supremely boring to me the past two seasons.

        You have to factor in that most of the country likes re-used humor like 2.5 men and BBT, though. It’s comparatively clean and cliche, and people like that. Stability. Predictability. I don’t think the whole “if you like ______, you probably don’t like ______” washes, though.

        Obviously I like Always Sunny better (see gravatar), and Archer is hilarious, so for me it’s FX for the win as well. I would say the smartest people I know (aforementioned nerds and geeks included) prefer these two shows’ humor to anything dramatic or sitcomy. After doing serious science all day, we need to laugh!

      • Bijlee says:

        I liked BBT for the first two seasons was okay with the third. Now it’s pretty boring but relatively harmless. I HAVE NEVER thought any of the girls only existed as objects of desire. Not even Penny. They’ve had some beautiful women on the show and have made it a point to show how smart they can be. Yes, EVEN Penny. Sure it’s still pretty girl with not so attractive guy, but not all cliches can be subverted. I feel like they’ve developed the female characters pretty well sometimes even better than the guys. I think the friendship of Amy, Penny, and Bernie is adorable.

        But now they’re all stagnant including the guys. They cast worked well as an ensemble and now they just put too much focus on Sheldon, Leonard, Penny, and Amy. I don’t see Penny talk about her work very much, but then again Leonard doesn’t much either. And if he’s a Caltech scientist he should be working on getting tenure, publishing research etc. They seem like they have too much time on their hands for scientists.

        I’ll tune in from time to time. But they drag things on forever. The worst thing they ever did was give the show three seasons of renewals. They should have kept it on its toes. But I still laugh when all four of the guys dressed as Flash. And Sheldon getting a pod of cats and naming them all after the guys in the Manhattan Project. I may do the latter one day.

        It’s not a good show and can be unfunny, but I don’t understand why it’s so “offensive” to nerds. It’s not like nerds are a race and have the ultimate claim on all things nerdy. Or that they are the overseers of nerd culture. I’m pretty sure there were firemen and lots of policeman offended by all the other cop shows because how inaccurate they are. And I’m very sure fantasy footballers have found the League offensive because there just isn’t enough fantasy football and it’s so over the top, but it boils down to the fact that it’s just a drama/comedy/sitcom. It’s not a big deal. If anything people should be more offended by the racial stereotypes then the nerd ones.

        Besides if it were so offensive to nerds, I doubt Will Wheaton (the champion of nerd culture), Neil Degrasse Tyson (a physicist), and even Brian Greene (another physicist) would not have guest starred. They see it for what it is a harmless show about nerdy people. I find Mythbusters offensive to science because what they do isn’t “real” science. I still enjoy it because they blow up stuff all the time.

        The show is nerd lite, but it has to be to appeal to a broad audience. The physics jokes are pretty spot on and they hire actual physicists and mathematicians for the jokes. I’m not sure about the Star Trek stuff because I’ve never been a huge fan of Star Trek (it seems fine to me), but their superhero jokes are usually pretty funny and the science is accurate. I really appreciate the research they do in this regard. I hate movies like Thor they just leave the science all fuzzy without even attempting to come up with something you know. Oh Einstein Rossen Bridge and then….not a peep about it ever again.

        I also enjoy Mad Men, The League, IASIP, Louie, and Doctor Who.

    • Talie says:

      Yeah, people can hate on her, but she is incredibly successful. And she has jumped from one hit show to another for most of her career. She may not ever be on Vanity Fair’s Hollywood cover, but she is making a lot of money and doing just as good as any other young starlet.

    • Naye in VA says:

      Right. Gina may kick-ass but Kaley is cute and really funny, and has a strong career. I dont get the “just a TV girl” thing. Kaiser threw major shade. She has been steadily working for years which is more than a lot of actresses can say. Go Kaley.

    • Chrissy says:

      SERIOUSLY? The Big Bang Theory is being compared to Friends?! Let me just gag in utter outrage.

      • pwal says:

        Go ahead and join in, because I’ve been gagging at the fact that Friends was colossally overrated for how many years. Yes, I enjoyed the first two years until the We were on a break cr@p and the ensuing years of Rachel wanting Ross back only after he moved on with another woman and the Joey thing.

        Penny and Leonard kinda have a similar dynamic, although Penny never made any overt attempt to woo Leonard away from any woman he was involved with, plus Penny isn’t nearly as b*tchy as Rachel. Yes, she gets snappy with Howard because of some of the cr@p he says and she even has to check Sheldon and Raj every once in a while, but she does seem to care about the guys. On Friends, it was all about circling their wagons around Rachel, which really didn’t make sense, since she was the architect of her misery the majority of the time. Penny has Bernadette and Amy now, but those girls deliver home truths to her on a regular basis.

        Sorry about the long post, but I’m more willing to stick with BBT than support the @$$hattery passed off as romantic comedy that was Ross and Rachel.

      • BeesKness says:

        @pwal: I don’t like The Big Bang Theory at all, but I agree about Friends. I loved it when it originally aired, but not too long ago I watched some reruns and it just wasn’t that funny to me. It felt dated and stale.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        The one when Rachel made the Thanksgiving dessert was the best one, imho.

    • G says:

      ITA I love BBT it’s smart and funny. Kaley has rocked since ’8 Simple Rules’.

  10. hmmmmmm.... says:

    I guess I am the only one who didn’t find Gina to be interesting and compelling. And their body language was ALWAYS off. This news really doesn’t bother me.

    • Holly says:

      After google-image searching last night, I have to agree that the body language was really lacking in every photo: weird. I’d love to see a pic of the new lovebirds together though!

      • mom2two says:

        I agree! Nothing against Gina at all…they just didn’t seem to have chemistry in their pictures.
        I like Kaley. She comes across as funny and witty. And she’s got her own gig going on.

    • LL says:

      I guess I am the only one who didn’t find Gina to be interesting and compelling.

      Yes. To me she’s like the female Jean Claude Van Damme. She’s a attractive action star without the acting ability just like Van Damme was.

      • Andrea says:

        It’s also weird to me how people give Gina a pass on all her plastic surgery and partying (which was notorious) but then call other women fake?

        Then other women get raked over the coals when they can’t act (Biel anyone?) but Carano gets a pass even though her acting is terrible.

        Carano is given a pass by a lot of people bc she’s muscular and hit people for a living. It’s a double standard. You can’t judge some women for having plastic surgery and being fake and then give others a pass. Either judge everyone equally or judge no one.

      • Grant says:

        I think Biel is a monumentally better actress than Gina. At least Biel can convey emotion, Gina literally looks the same in every scene.

      • Nerd Alert says:

        Yeah, that’s a good comparison. Just like Van Damme, she’s a terrible one-note actor with no personality outside “kicking ass”. Snore.

    • GiGi says:

      Yeah. This. I never got the “hotness” of this couple. Sure, they’re both attractive, but together it was like they cancelled each other out…

      I’ve never seen Big Bang Theory, but I like that Kaley Cuoco has a personality – and I know the Celebitches are all for a witty woman snagging the hot guy ;)

      • Nerd Alert says:

        I’m a bit surprised they’re not. I’m a little disappointed everyone’s going for the plastic beauty over the brains and personality. Then again, a lot of people only have time to get their gossip from one source, and they get it here (like me), where Kaley just gets no love from the bloggers. Oh well.

      • CM says:

        I think it is not fair to compare when Gina only has a couple of movies out that does not really require her much acting as opposed to those mentioned who started early on. She clearly needs to work on her acting, but so does many of other famous actress out there.

  11. Bianca says:

    I have no opinion on this story whatsoever. Just butting in to say that I really enjoy(ed) TBBT and I don’t think it’s such a dumb show.

  12. MademoiselleRose says:

    No offence to her, but she’s so … ordinary. She’s not even pretty. Hello … what?! Wow, that makes me think even I’d have a chance with him.

  13. DanaG says:

    I prefer Kaley over Gina sorry Big Bang is a funny show and she is good in it. Let’s see if this is just a Summer fling which is could be.

  14. Mew says:

    Oh meh. I like Gina but obviously it just didn’t work out. Kaeyley whatever, who ever she is, so dull.

  15. Anna says:

    I really like Kaley but I just cannot see her with Cavill. She seems so much more fun! I like Cavill but I am bored by him already. Anyway, I am expecting the wrath of fandom to be unleashed onto this poor girl’s head.

    • Miss Kiki says:

      Henry is becoming such a snoozefest. I also concur that Kaley looks like she’d be far too much fun for him.

      The only reason he and Gina looked like they worked is because they’re both as oatmeal a each other!

      The Henry fangirls are gonna be highly unimpressed with this.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I have nothing against Henry but he lacks charisma IMO. Say what you want about Cuoco, but to me she seems like a really cool chick.

      • Nerd Alert says:

        +1 Anna
        +1 Miss Kiki
        +1 Original Kitten

        I do not get the appeal of Carano or Cavill at ALL. I never understand the love? *shrugs*

  16. Stef Leppard says:

    Just because she’s “bubbly” and “blond” she’s unworthy of Henry? And I guess she would be “interesting and compelling” only if she were a brunette martial artist? Sounds baseless and judgy to me. Kaley seems interesting and funny and isn’t your standard-issue no-personality bean pole. (Plus I really like Big Bang–and Mad Men.)

    • Andrea says:

      Yeah. I can’t stand the back handed feminism that happens with Gina Carano. First off bc Carano has had just as much plastic surgery as the rest of these women and is no more real.

      Kaley is a female comedian. She has talent. Carano has no acting talent and had a monotone personality. Kaley is not as good as her how?

      On personality alone, Kaley wins for me.


    • Axis2ClusterB says:

      Exactly. It’s not fair to assume that he “tossed her (Gina) aside,” either. People break up. This assumption that Henry moved on to a “bubbly blond” because he’s now got a starring vehicle really seems just nasty to me, especially when all evidence indicates that Henry is nice guy.

    • Nerd Alert says:

      I am in love with your name and your post, @Stef Leppard.

  17. Talie says:

    I don’t get why people were so into Gina to begin with. Compelling?! She’s just as dull as he is!

    • Hipocricy says:

      Amen !

      Personally i think both Carano and Cavill are dull as hell.

      This Kaley strikes me as having more personality and lively attitude than both of them !

      I don’t know her show but i loved her in ‘Charmed’ !

  18. pepi says:

    The Big Bang is not a stupid Tv show, I love it.

    • Lemony says:

      My mom & dad love it, but I’ve never watched. Does it have a laugh track, though? I don’t know if I can get into a show that has a jarring, canned laugh track cutting in every 3.5 minutes.

      • pao la says:

        It’s a show with a real audience that just laughs whenever something is funny. I love the big bang theory!

  19. Dorothy#1 says:

    Are you kidding? Big Bang is awesome!! Kaley is funny, and pretty but not vapid like so many others! I love them together. Plus I love that she dated Johnny Galecki for awhile too. :)

    • pao la says:

      I’m actually very sorry that they broke up in the end. They seem so perfect for me.. maybe because i know how much leonard loves Penny and i can’t separate the two!! :D

      • Dorothy#1 says:

        Ha I was sad too, but I think he is engaged now. I saw an interview with him a while back and he says he really wants kids and I’m guessing Kaley isn’t near ready. :)

    • Cas says:

      I know, it is such a great show! Perfect when you just feel like some light comedy, I laugh every time. Really surprised so many people find it bad??

  20. Meera says:

    Okay so theyre dating. Big deal! we all have pur complicated love lives. I, for one, dated somebody for 1 year before I realised it was the wrong person. it took me another 6 bad, cold months to gather the courage to break up. I was weak. And 2 weeks after I broke up, my best friend of a month asked me out. I’ve been with him for two years now and still going strong. I was called a slut for having a boyfriend two weeks after my break up. people thought my current boyfriend and I had no chemistry or we weren’t right for each other. but people know SH*T. I finally know what love is and I know better than to judge people for who they are dating and how casual it may or may not be. let’s give them a rest and wish them all the best.

  21. Elodie says:

    That means there is hope for all of us say basic ordinary looking women to hook up with an unspeakably beautiful man… If it’s true then get that D!ck of Steel girl, never mind the haters, I’m right behind you… and more importantly next on the line! *flicks hair*

  22. Vee says:

    I’ve never seen her show, but hear she is talented and funny. And Gina dumped Henry in my opinion. I cannot imagine Henry showing up on all those red carpets with her if he didn’t feel the relationship had longevity.

  23. Lemony says:

    Nothing against Kaley, but I’m not buying this story.
    I bet they don’t even know each other. Hasn’t Henry been flying all over the world for the last month promoting MoS?

    • Aud says:

      When he attended a premiere of Man of Steel in Sydney, word was already out that he was single.

  24. Andrea says:

    The PR surrounding this man is oppressive.

    That said, Kaley’s personality on talk shows is dynamite and she’s hilarious. I cracked up watching her on Ellen last month.


  25. Aud says:

    As much as I think him to be super hot, the first thing that pops into my head about this relationship, and the previous…is BEARD.

    • Vee says:

      Henry is not gay. When new and young in Hollywood, he shared an apartment with some other actor wannabes who were gay. They are all on record stating Henry is not gay. They were his friends. And come on, if he was gay, where are the reports of his steamy flings at local bath houses like John Travolta?

      • LAK says:

        Having gay rumours is a mark of success in Hollywood these days. I can’t think of any actor who doesn’t have gay rumours about them.

      • Aud says:

        The Travolta rumours in steam houses came years later.
        He never has had any chemistry with any ‘girlfriend’ he has been pictured with.

  26. poiup says:

    Ah a lot of people see her as nothing special?

    She takes natural ease and charmingness to the nth level. She wouldn’t have such great comedic timing if she wasn’t like this. She’s vastly distinct from the other actresses you mentioned and a catch. She’s the anti Natalie Portman.

  27. Dhavynia says:

    What’s wrong with a movie guy dating a tv girl?
    We should all be happy that he doesn’t discriminate and dates all show biz types

    • Elle Kaye says:

      Well, I guess we should just “stick to our own” No cross dating whatsoever. Nurses with nurses…no doctors because they are “better” than nurses. No dating anyone who has a higher perceived position or a more “prestigious” position because you aren’t good enough.


      • Nerd Alert says:


        First time I’ve actually been mildly offended by a blogger here. MILDly, mind you, and I’m already over it. ;)

        But you make a good point. My man will have his Ph.D in soil ecology and here I am with my silly little B.Sc. in chemistry! I should fret about how he could possibly love me now, non?

  28. LucyS says:


  29. Ellie says:

    I agree the show is dumb. I wanted to laugh, but couldn’t! And someone above mentioned that BBT is being touted as the new Friends—a show I love, even with its laugh track, so the comparison saddens me. Kaley annoys me more than any character on BBT, so I’m not a fan of her acting, but I’ve never heard or read anything bad about her as a person so…go girl, I say. HC doesn’t seem like such a brilliant actor either. Maybe that’s what they have in common.

    • pao la says:

      Not trying to argue here.. but why do you say it’s a stupid show? i think is a brilliant show, very clever and very funny..

  30. Quinn says:

    I actually like Kaley Cuoco a lot so I’d be onboard, but…where would these two people even have MET? That oh-so-famous yearly CBS sitcom/superhero summer blockbuster junket? Where did this even come from?

    • Vee says:

      They were both at the Spike TV Guys Choice Awards. And another awards show before that when he was still with Gina.

  31. Kiddo says:

    standard-issue bubbly Hollywood blonde

    That is cold. Kaley Cuoco has a ton of personality and is a fantastic comedic actress, even if you don’t care for the show. She seems like a nice enough person, doesn’t act full of herself with conceit and is natural looking like an actual human being and not a blow up doll. Maybe she’s too good for him. Or maybe they both subscribe to the *big bang* theory. Super sexy on the outside doesn’t guarantee that someone isn’t a total bore in bed.

    What’s up with Celebitchy this morning? It’s Oddities and Horrors: disproportionate pant legs, premature deaths, and chopped fingers. Throw in a Kardashian and you have the side freak show.

    • Vee says:

      I know nothing about her, but from what I am reading, she is talented, smart and funny.

  32. serena says:

    It must be her team lol

  33. magpie says:

    So everyone who said he’d be getting a new gf right around now was absolutely right. This is so paticular that it’s gotta be PR. Not saying he’s gay (he may or may not be) but he and Gina were not hot for each other and it showed in their body language.

  34. Grumpycat says:

    I just find it hard to believe he has had any time at all to date the past month. I am sure he has been traveling everywhere and doing all kinds of press and events for MOS. How are they dating?

  35. pao la says:

    I feel very offended by the ‘stupid big bang theory show’ comment because i’m a true fan. the show is clever yet funny and all the actors seem to be pretty grounded and humble. Kaley Cuoco dated her co-star for 2 years without anybody knowing, not even the people on the show. I respect her for not outselling her lovelife for the sake of her career. She might be a Hollywood blonde but she has a great personality, she is a talented comedian actress and she is funny. I don’t think she is beautiful but she is pretty enough and she sticks with what mother nature gave her like a real person. so refreshing for what we’re used to see in the Hollywood world.

    • Ellie66 says:

      Yes! +1000! :)

    • Andrea says:

      Kaley has had a boob job too. So it’s not all mother nature….

      But I agree that she’s funny and not pretentious.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I don’t blame you for defending a show you love but really, humor is such a subjective thing-you can’t take a difference of opinion about a comic tv show personally.

    • Easy says:

      Kaley is fun, I watched an interview with her castmates and it was clear she is one of the boys.

      Also there is nothing remotely clever about that shitty show. Every “funny” moment is built on stereotypes. The writing s shockingly predictable and unfunny but what do you expect from Chuck Lore?!

    • Bijlee says:

      Don’t worry about it. People can be really judgmental about tv shows and think they are somehow better than you if you like a harmless show like TBBT. It’s somehow offensive to nerds and nerd culture….like wtf? Are nerds somehow being oppressed? LOL

      I like NCIS and people hate that show too. But it’s a show I enjoy and will be sad when it goes off the air.

  36. Maria says:

    all in all i too think its a PR move. lots of people think they need to “upgrade” when their career takes off but this is just too obvious.

    oh and just because Gina has a few extra pounds it doesnt make her more likeable or interesting.
    same goes for Kaley: just because she is on a sitcom and can make a few funny remarks in a late night that doesnt mean she is funny.

    • Jayna says:

      I have seen Kaley co-host the View quite a few times and guest on there and the girl is funny. She is very self-deprecating and witty and makes fun of her nonexistent dating life when she’s unattached if someone asks if she’s dating someone. I have always liked her.

  37. T.fanty says:

    In terms of PR, it makes sense. He’s incredibly dull and Kaley is a lot better for making him seem a little more dynamic and fun.

  38. Cazzee says:

    At least she has a personality….it could be a lot worse.

  39. Jayna says:

    Kaley is an absolute unpretentious, down-to-earth sweetheart, a real rarity in Celebritynarcissistland, and is very funny. I would hate to think she leaked this. She doesn’t seem the type.

    I don’t see this lasting, though. Just more of a fun, summertime, rebound romance for him and then he moves on, and she gets her heart broken. Love The Big Bang Theory.

  40. Ellie66 says:

    I love the Big Bang Theory funniest show on TV! I like Kelly she seems very sweet and funny so he is the lucky one! I don’t get why a lot if comments are so snobby about television stars are movie stars better? I think not.

  41. Annie says:

    Man this is such a PR stunt. So embarrassing. Is he gay? Why the desperation?

  42. OhDear says:

    So he (allegedly) starts dating Gina Carano a month after breaking up with his then-fiancee, then starts dating Kaley Couco a month or two after breaking up with Gina. And it’s gone from press release only when he got engaged to public appearances after a few months to People magazine article within a few weeks.

    Dude. It’s ok to take some me time (or tell your PR people that no one will judge that harshly if there’s a longer break between significant others)!

    • LAK says:

      There are people like that. Who can’t be alone. One of my friends has never been alone since she started dating. Not even for a day. We tease her about it, but it’s who she is. Always with somebody.

      • pao la says:

        Yes! I have a friend that has not spent a day in her life without a boyfriend. Usually she breaks up with her boyfriend when she has already found herself a new one, so for a few days she is in 2 relationships at once. Every time she calls me telling me how much more she loves the new one compared to the old one. I don’t know how she does it, it sounds exhausting to me and i think she should spend some time on her own to find out what she really wants and her typical answer is ‘Oh I am so much more in love right now with whatever his name is! we’re moving in together!’
        Now i want to see how long this poor guy will last until she finds herself a new one. :D :D

      • Nerd Alert says:

        Awww, I have that friend, too. Two, actually. I always wonder how well they really know/like themselves if they can’t ever be alone.

    • Scandal! says:

      funny- add the fiance catching him in bed with a guy(s)/girl(s)and you have an episode of Scandal. Olivia Pope FTW!

  43. The Original Mia says:

    I guess all those who bashed Gina for being Gina are happy. He’s back with the type of girl they envisioned him with. Tall, willowly & blonde. Hurrah! Oh, and pimping her relationship when she’s been known in the past for keeping her stuff under wraps.

    • Andrea says:

      Kaley is neither tall nor willowy :) . She’s short and curvy.

      I never bashed Gina for being Gina. I bashed the obvious PR angle and public desperation. I think the PR is desperate here too. Kaley is employed by CBS which is owned by WB who owns DC Comics.

      But I do think Kaley is funny.

      • Vee says:

        IMDB lists Kaley as 5’6″. Not short. She is curvy though.

      • JP says:

        CBS is owned by the CBS Corporation. Warner Bros. and DC Comics is owned by Time Warner. Two separate media companies. Although, they both in conjunction own the CW.

      • Lucky Charm says:

        @ Vee – In my family, 5’6″ IS short, even for the girls!(only two are shorter than 5’7″) :) My shortest uncle is always being teased for being the runt, because he is “only” 6 feet tall, lol!

      • Vee says:

        Lucky Charm, wow! I’m envious. ;) 5’6″ is tall where I come from.

  44. Mairead says:

    Some of yez are mad – Kaley is feckin’ adorable!

    And as for being “just” a TV actress – television is far outstripping the Hollywood machine for interesting and quality viewing; Cavill’s biggest success is the telly – this film is just another remake for heavens sake!

    • Nerd Alert says:


      I’ll take a 3-hour marathon of great TV over one of the BS 3-hour movies churned out by Hollywood lately.

  45. MrsBPitt says:

    Henry is really handsome, but seems to lack something in the personality departement…Kaley is seems very bubbly and personable…sometimes dull men go for bubbly girls cause they don’t have to try so hard…

  46. Micki says:

    He became predictable in a bad way

    • Meanchick says:

      And quickly! By the way, WTH is up with his posing? He’s standing like he can barely bring himself to touch Carano. His body language is screaming!

      • Justsayin9 says:

        I think he is nervous to be on such a big red carpet, all those cameras and having to pose. This is very new to him and probably intimidating…as it would be for most people. That could be why he doesnt project relaxation or comfort.

        I saw some great pictures of him and Gina when they were relaxed and all smiles…definite chemistry. They were having fun and did not know the camera was there.

  47. Amy says:

    I actually approve of this pair. He needs someone like her because no offense to cavill but the man comes off as another boring goodlooking stick in the mud

    • Andrea says:

      Here’s the thing though….

      In some of those interviews with Amy Adams he was downright adorable.

      Watch him with Amy on Katie Couric and Graham Norton or in behind the scenes pics. Amy Adams seems to be able to get him to loosen up a bit.

      I hope Amy and Henry continue to become good friends. She’s good for him.

  48. Amanda says:

    I thought Kaley Cuoco was married? When did she get divorced?

  49. Tammy says:

    Big Bang Theory a stupid show? I think not! The show is still funny and Kaley Cuoco is beautiful. Who the hell is Gina Carano? Never heard of her.

  50. Vee says:

    Michael K from dlisted.com normally calls out “gays in the closet” and classic bearding cases. Think Tom Cruise, Jake Gylenhaal, Bradley Cooper. He is caustic and hysterical. Read his take on this situation. It’s a riot!

  51. Londongal says:

    He’s undoubtedly beautiful but I always feel in interviews that he’s some sort of ‘cut out’, that he’s presenting us with a convenient version of ‘himself’ and that he’s hiding something. Be it sexuality, be it some quirk, mark my words: in a few years it’ll all come out in the wash. The one thing he clearly has is ambition, so what harms a leading man’s chances of super A list stardom in Hollywood ( very wrongly but…still…) Yup. It’ll be THAT.

    • Andrea says:

      I agree but he truly was adorable in some of those interviews with Amy Adams.

      I said it above but I hope they continue to become close friends. Adams is totally good for him. She seems to help him relax.

  52. Kelly says:

    WOW. Just wow over some of these comments. Some elitism going on.

    Harry C shouldn’t date a TV star because movie stars are better than TV stars?!?

    Hmm. Frankly, I love BBT. It’s one of the few funny shows out there, and maybe he’s gay, maybe he’s not. It’s his choice who he wants to date regardless of the reasons. They are both successful and don’t really need to pull a PR stunt unlike some of them out there.

  53. Jcamp11 says:

    HC straight is hot. HC gay is still pretty hot. Read a few blinds over the last couple of weeks that point to all of this–bearding. I’m so bored with the bearding! Can’t someone just cast Matt Bomer in some hot ass leading role and end this debate once and for all that gay men can’t effectively carry big projects. Ugh.

  54. drdoolittling says:

    I hav no interest in this story, except to point out that BBT is AMAZING. Seriously love that show.

  55. LL says:

    I don’t see the problem with him dating her. She looks like a nice person and even though I don’t care for BBT, but she’s very funny on the show.

    I don’t like using this comparison b/c its so overused but I think it works in this situation, I have the idea that many people weren’t so angry when Brad Pitt started to date Jennifer Aniston. I bet they loved the idea that someone like Aniston could land one of Hollywoods leading men.

    • Sullivan says:

      LL, I wasn’t angry when BP started dating Rachel from Friends. I found it baffling, though. Same with this alleged pairing.

  56. magpie says:

    Lainey just came out with a great time table. Like they’ve hardly been in the same city and it’s already semi-serious?

    I doubt he and Gina even really knew each other. He went to go support F&F (contract) and then they were never seen together again.

  57. kibbles says:

    I’ve never watched BBT, so I don’t understand why it’s such a popular show. Kaley Cuoco definitely lucked out because she just appears so out of place on the red carpet and in Hollywood. She’s cute, I guess, but I don’t really see her appeal nor do I think she is particularly attractive.

    I rarely believe gay rumors in Hollywood, but I am starting to think Cavill really is gay. I can’t believe these women actually participate in being someone’s beard, but I guess he’s a hot commodity right now, so it will also help with his girlfriends’ pr as well.

    He’s handsome to be sure and I thought he was hot in The Tudors, but he’s not making my biscuits tingle, you know? There is just something very sterilized to him and his female escorts make it all the more obvious because he doesn’t appear affectionate or drawn to them at all. Too bad he feels the need to remain closeted, even in Hollywood of all places. I guess it’s the only way he can maintain his large female fan base and win superhero/action roles in the future.

    Oops sorry for the doubt post :/

  61. Ariel says:

    I read somewhere that Henry and Ellen split long before it became public. I think it was in late 2011 when they broke up but it didn’t become public until August 2012 or something. Just what I heard.

    • Jimena says:

      That’s true! That’s why is so weird why some people say he is looking for publicity, he NEVER talk about details (when/who he dates, when he stars/ends a relationship)

      • Ariel says:

        Maybe he has a different PR team now and they’re pushing him into these relationships. And who knows, maybe they aren’t even dating. Its really just speculation until its confirmed.

      • Jimena says:

        he never talked about his relationships, when he is asked he is very cautious

        when he ends a relationship, he just start dating again, that’s how we know he is single again LOLOLOL

  62. Luc says:

    COME ON GUYS! WHY YOU BELIEVE GOSSIPS?????????????????????? THEY JUST HAVE MET, THAT’S ALL! Who does not like Henry? LOLOLOL

  63. lylaooo says:

    i really didn´t know how to feel about this news.. i want him for mee!!! ….but Kaley its funny..and she is NOT in a stupid tv show ok???
    and with Gina theres nothing sexy about them together ..they seem off..

    at least with Kaley he can have some fun so im just going to wait for the first photos!

  64. Danisha says:

    Come on ladies,we are all just disappointed that he dumped the curvy brunette for the standard skinny, big boobed blonde.All actors are the same and I bet Henry is no different,they are either in the closet or just using their fame to score with hot starlets.I knew there was something phony about him when I read his interviews so no,I am not surprised at all.

    • Justsayin9 says:

      You know…I am am a curvy brunette and I just never got the Gina thing. He has said in past interviews, before all this, that he prefers blondes, non aggressive women (because they are always on the defensive) and a woman who will go out and have drinks with him…and be able to keep up. I think Gina meets the drinking criteria (just a guess). Definitely not blonde and beating the living sh*t out of people for a living is definitely a more aggressive type of occupation. I hate that he prefers blondes…plenty of hot brunettes. But, he was dating off type and those are usually short lived.

    • I Choose Me says:

      Would not call Kaley skinny at all. She and Gina actually have quite similar builds. Strong and feminine both. So hey, he could do worse.

  65. Grant says:

    I’m literally shocked at TBBT hate. I thought that this show was almost universally adored–and as it should be. It’s hilarious, and I hate to break it to you, but most stereotypically hot chicks aren’t into Battlestar Galactica or Marvel Comics. Just sayin’…

    • Nerd Alert says:

      True dat.

      Not to say there aren’t a lot of pretty girls into those things, it’s just that they don’t stuff themselves with plastic to appeal to wealthy or good-looking men.

  66. Christina says:

    I am not what sure what is more interesting about Gina Carano, is it her man jaw or her terrible actress? Kaley Cuoco is on a great show. BBT is extremely successful. She is also adorable and seems sweet. If this is true , I think Henry and Kaley would make a cute couple. Gina seems like she could literally beat him up with her manliness. That messes with my thoughts of him being all made of steel and shit. I don’t get a gay vibe from him at all but even if he was , it would be a win for mankind. Henry Cavill is heartstoppingly attractive. His smile shows his mischievous side. I think he is a gentleman in the streets and a freak in the bed. The fact that he seems private in interviews makes him more interesting…to me anyhow

    • lylaooo says:

      YES!!! i dont get any gay vibes… and Gina so off!! i dont fine her cute or hot…
      Kaley it’s more likeable…and i saw some youtube videos of her and she is funny …yeah … i kinda like it…

  68. TG says:

    Wasn’t Kaley or Kelly whatever her name is the subject of one of Lainey’s blinds awhile back? http://www.blinditemsexposed.com/2012/02/lainey-thin-for-nothing.html

    I don’t think this one has ever been confirmed but she fits the description of barely being passably pretty. She is not attractive, has a busted face. He isn’t my type but I would think if he is going to date so low in the dating pool he would pick someone more attractive like Ryan Seacrest does.

    • drea says:

      The popular guess on that one was Ashley Greene. Coincided with her losing a lot of weight and working out at the gym everyday. Someone like Kaley would not have made it onto Lainey’s radar back then, but she has now. She’s got Lainey plotting timelines over there because she was one of the bloggers who ‘shipped Cavill and Carano and, apparently, she hates BBT.

  69. Rachel says:

    Kaiser, you better take a down a notch. I am *this* close to organizing a nerd rebellion on CB. Just because you don’t care for BBT does not mean it’s not a good show. I never watched Lost, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, or really any other TV show (I’m not a big TV watcher), but I don’t go around calling them bad shows… Because I know those fans would immediately start screaming for my head.

  70. Nev says:

    I think Kaley is really funny…and this Superman guy is totally YAWN.

  71. Amelia says:

    I just feel bad for her if a portion of his fans hate on her. Seen it all go down with Kstew and fangirls can be the most wicked and determined bitches. If i were her friend i would have told Gina to run! Maybe she was beginning to get a taste of it as the Superman hype was hotting up.

    Well played Gina!

  72. Chordy says:

    Henry Cavill went from “that guy that who’s meh but was hot on the Tudors” to a 200+ comment thread in the span of about three weeks. Well played, Team Cavill. Well played.

  73. rose says:

    Man I liked him with Gina

  74. I Choose Me says:

    Gina is sexy for sure but about as interesting and compelling as a wet mop imo. I like Kaley but I agree that this pairing seems really random. And although I really hate that every actor on his way up is accused of being gay, I’m starting to think there may be some truth to those rumors.

    If this is a showmance, I wonder how this came about? The pr side of Hollywood fascinates me to no end.

    • magpie says:

      Yeah, I don’t think Henry’s gay. But I do think these relationships are more for show than anything else. Especially this new one. They took a gamble and it payed off. But I think they’ll be cute together. Never saw the heat between him and Gina.

  75. TheWendyNerd says:

    I don’t think Kaley’s downgrade. Actually, she’s the best part of The Big Bang Theory these days, or, at least, she and the other girls are (except when there’s a joke about WOMEN READING COMICS OR KNOWING ABOUT STAR WARS WHAT? NO WOMAN HAS EVER READ COMICS OR WATCHED STAR WARS, EVER EVER. That’s just fucking annoying). I just feel like with the guys on that show it’s the same joke over and over, “Haha! They read comic books and play D&D! AND SHELDON’S WEIRD!”

    But she’s talented and successful. I had never even heard about Gina until she and Cavill started dating. I know she was a pro-wrestler and that’s it. Kaley Cuoco at least has name recognition. And saying that being a TV girl makes her a step down seems a bit unfair. TBBT isn’t the best show on TV, but let’s face it, TV these days are much better than the regular fair for movies. And I get far more laughs even out of TBBT than I do out of the majority of the comedy films put out these days. And to tell you the truth, Man of Steel kind of stunk. I mean,(SPOILERS) Superman wasn’t even the hero of his own damn movie until the last fifteen minutes or so, he wasn’t even Superman (everyone, including Lois, calls him Clark, the word “Superman” is only used like, twice), not to mention the fact that the bit with Superman killing Zod was stupid for a couple of reasons 1) He supposedly did it to save this family. But the family wasn’t actually in any real danger. They weren’t trapped or anything and could have easily run away since Superman was holding Zod down and 2) SUPERMAN DOESN’T KILL PEOPLE. THAT’S A MAJOR FACET OF HIS CHARACTER POST-52 AND IN THE EARTH-ONE UNIVERSE. IT WOULD TAKE A LOT MORE THAN WHAT HAPPENED IN THAT MOVIE TO MAKE SUPERMAN KILL ZOD. IT TOOK THE JOKER KILLING PREGNANT LOIS AND NUKING METROPOLIS TO GET SUPERMAN TO KILL HIM. YES, METROPOLIS WAS PRETTY TOTALED IN THE MOVIE, BUT BITS OF IT WERE LEFT AND PEOPLE ACTUALLY SURVIVED. SUPERMAN KILLS LESS THAN FREAKING WONDER WOMAN, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, AND IT TOOK HER SIXTY YEARS TO KILL ARES. I DON’T EVEN THINK SUPERMAN HAS KILLED DARKSEID YET. 3) Even if you could justify Superman killing Zod, he should not have been able to walk away from that so easy. He was all smiles at the end, he should have been seriously fucked up by that. Also, what happened to Metropolis was ridiculous. Superman would never endanger peoples’ lives like he did. He always tries to take the battle elsewhere. HE ALWAYS FINDS A WAY. And he CERTAINLY would never THROW SEMI-TRUCKS INTO POPULATED SMALLVILLE RESTAURANTS. He just wouldn’t. Also, it took him thirty years to realize he could fly? What?

    Sorry, I’m not even a huge Superman fangirl, but there was too much stupid in that movie. Cavill is hot, and he did well with what they gave him, but let’s not pretend he’s too good to date a girl on a wildly popular sitcom who has a good three years left on her contract, endorsement deals, and has comic timing to justify her success. Let’s just not. And let’s not pretend that Gina was some INCREDIBLE TALENT/SUCCESS STORY/ROLE MODEL and that she’s some huge step up from Kaley. Her resume is dwarfed even by Elsa Pataky’s. If he had been dating someone like Jennifer Lawrence or Emily Blunt or Kate Winslet or Kate Beckinsale, I’d get it. But Gina Carano? No. Sorry. Not a step down at all.

  76. kimmy says:

    if Henry is gay what should I say about Johnny Deep? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL JUST GOSSIPS!


  77. Shay says:

    I too, thought Kaley and Ellen Whitaker looked alike, if he has always wanted to date Kaley and has been a huge fan of the Big Bang Theory then maybe he thought Ellen looked like Kaley himself, he met Ellen years after The Big Bang Theory started. Ellen was just a less attractive version. I can’t see Kaley an Henry being a forever thing, really who cares if it was? As for Henry being gay? Definitely questionable,it doesnt matter if he was, I think it’s sad if he feels like he has to hide it :(

  78. Ana says:

    So what!? Love is love, if she makes him happy and viceversa…well she could be the pauper’s daughter (no offense paupers, just making a point) and it wouldn’t matter. Geez! Wish them the best. Get yours Kaley, get yours.

    A picture of Henry, Corey Spears and Henry’s older brother, Corey is a family’s friend. This is very recent! and Corey went with his boyfriend! It is so EASY to see Henry is not gay! C’mon don’t believe in gossips!

  80. Rux says:

    This is terrible! I think Kaley is funny and all but Gina is so much better. Kaley is a wine cooler but Gina was a really good Bourdeaux, what da crap with this dude. –shakes head–

  81. Samantha says:

    Its kinda funny that I discovered Dan Renzi’s post a few days ago that literally affirms that Henry is very much indeed ‘straight’ though when I read things like this,I still can’t help but feel a tad bit jealous deep down inside lol!Anyways,despite the resemblance that Kaley bears to that horse beater Ellen,I still do think that the former is an improved modified version.Frankly,I know what people mean when they say Henry can do better,just look at him for god sake but am I the only one who has come across couples whereby one of them is so good looking and well,the other is just so average or worse,ghastly warranting an almost immediate ‘WTF?’ in your mind?Very rarely do I see couples who are on the same par in the looks department.

    • Myriam says:

      This reminded me of the Joe Jackson song, Is She Really Going Out With Him? I agree with you cause I’ve seen it. But, on the other hand, I was also dating this guy, quickly after my ex. Fine, he was a rebound. And in the first months that we were dating, I would get the “You two don’t match” and “WTF” looks and whispers (behind his back). His OWN AUNT once said to me that I was too pretty for him. And now, 3 years later, we’re engaged (FYI, no one will ever tell me that my fiancé isn’t sexy). Appearance wise and status, it may not look right but it might work for Henry and Kaley. That said, this is totally a PR stunt.

    The actor has recently lost a lot of weight, telling everyone that a strict diet and regular visits to the gym are behind his new body of steel. However, insiders say the young action star has been cheating and using laxatives to make himself look amazing on the screen.

    For the millionth time, Henry isn’t gay. His best friend who happens to be gay has said that he (Henry) is indeed straight. C’mon now don’t believe in some gossip bs.
    As for this random pairing, I think it’s PR, for Kaley ,and her team probably leaked the story.

  85. Ag says:

    I can’t believe people here are comparing BBT to Mad Men and concluding that BBT is superior. Wow. Yeah, BBT might have a large audience, but many awful/decidedly not funny shows do – see: 2 and a Half Men. Amazing shows, on the other hand, are often not packaged for consumption (their plots, humor, story arcs require actual audience involvement and thought) – see: Mad Men and Arrested Development. Saying that you like a show (like BBT) doesn’t mean that that show is “good”. It only means you like it. Look, I like plenty of trash tv, but I don’t pretend that Hoarders is anything more than mindless entertainment.

    • Aagje says:

      The comparison is stupid, but to dismiss the show as ‘stupid’ was truly unnecessary, and especially to refer to Cuoco as just another TV-girl is just rude. She has built herself a steady career and yet, she is linked to Cavill and gets called a downgrade and not pretty enough? Exceptionally unnecessary.

    • Cas says:

      I’m sorry but Big Bang is a good comedy television show, very unfair to compare it to Two and a Half Men and Hoarders!!!

  86. Kay Bea says:

    With 200+ comments, I’m aware that there probably isn’t anything new to contribute to the conversation here. Sorry, but I just couldn’t help myself.

    First off, if you like The Big Bang Theory, cool. If you hate it, cool. I know perfectly intelligent people who find the show trite, and perfectly intelligent people who find it clever and funny. Different strokes for different folks, right?

    As for Henry and Kaley, the issue (for me, at least) is not about whether or not he downgraded or upgraded, but rather the fact that his method for choosing women resembles that of an over-excited grandmother spinning the Price Is Right wheel for the first time. A lot of the reactions here seem to be divided into “Yay for Kaley/Henry!” and “Boo! Kaley/Henry is not good enough!” I have no strong feelings either way, because I can’t get past my initial reaction of “WTF??” Looks have nothing to do with it. Henry comes across as someone who wants very much to be taken seriously, and is earnest almost to the point of being awkward. This is a guy who almost missed the phone call telling him he’d gotten the part of Superman because he was too busy playing World of Warcraft. He’s seriously interested in Egyptology and history. Watching his Driven to Extremes episode gave me second-hand embarrassment during some parts, because he’s THAT dorky. Yes, Kaley is very bubbly and funny, but her personality seems like a complete mismatch to his.

    The timing seems totally suspicious as well. If he’s hoping to quash the gay rumors, I’ve got news for him: you’re doing it wrong. For the record, I am on the fence about the whole thing. For every photo I see or blurb I read that makes me think, “Yup, he’s for dudes,” there’s one that makes me think, “Well, perhaps not.” I HOPE the entire thing with Kaley is a PR stunt, because given his busy schedule of late, this whole “relationship” probably consists of one date and some phone calls. The only people I know who profess themselves that publicly over something so flimsy are middle school girls.

    His sexuality aside, I think some of his adolescent insecurities may be playing themselves out. He’s put the “Fat Cavill” story out there more than a few times now, and admits that he still struggles with body image. A few years ago I dated a very good-looking guy who had been really overweight until about the age of 17. He worked out all the time as an adult and was in good shape, but he still dealt with a periodic weight fluctuation of about 10 pounds, which really stressed him out. The positive female attention he got only seemed to make his lingering “fat kid” insecurities worse. He went from being someone who was tormented and couldn’t get a date to someone who could date almost anyone, and the only difference between the two was his weight. I think the transition was difficult and a little overwhelming. It also led to a lot of man-whoring and relationship hopping because he felt he had something to prove and just HAD to try one of everything. When I see pics of Henry Cavill on the red carpet, looking all stiff and posed with his chest stuck out, it reminds me of my ex. He seems so focused on presenting a certain image of himself, and completely unaware that it’s okay to relax, skip the hair gel, and forgo all that foundation and let that pale English complexion of his breathe.

    • Mbcavill says:

      Totally agreed with the exception of the gay rumors. He’s just an slightly nerdy straight guy who happens to be gorgeous:)

  87. sauvage says:

    Okay, so now he is officially gay.

  88. Myriam says:

    Wow. This whole gay thing just threw me in for a loop. I don’t have the greatest gaydar in the world, but I had no idea there were rumors of Henry. There was a blind item from blindgossip.com about an up and comer dumping his girlfriend from the pressure of his PR team and a lot of posters guessed him. I don’t know if he’s gay or not, but this is definitely a PR setup and it’s not even subtle. Superman, Big Bang theory, Penny, Comic Con? Come on?!!


  89. Mbcavill says:

    First of all, Henry is not gay. Anyone who is a fan and has kept up with him over the years can see that. I think this is either pr or a summer fling/rebound for them both. If it is pr it is definantly working more in her favor. Just because she hasn’t done a pr stunt before doesn’t mean she wouldn’t. He’s in the biggest movie of the summer whereas most people have never heard of her. Plus, I doubt BBT will last many more seasons. She’s gotta get her name out there. However, he is a self-confessed nerd so it is possible that he’s been crushing on her. I think this is a very new “relationship” and probably won’t last. They are just tooo different. He’s super intelligent and mature in interviews not to mention very classy. She on the other hand seems very immature and not classy.( I mean come on she always plays the “hot girl”! How 1 dimensional can you get?) She is talented on the comedic side of things but other than that she is just an ugly girl with a hot body trying to move up the Hollywood ladder. Henry is and has always been very self-deprecating in interviews, very unaware of his looks so he probably doesn’t think in terms of “doing better”. I just hope he finds someone deserving of him and I definantly don’t believe he has found her yet. Admittedly, I know more about Henry than I do Kaley but I have seen her work on the 3 shows she’s been on. She has no problem “selling” her image whereas Henry seems shy and embarrrased whenever someone compliments his looks in interviews. He obviously wants to be taken seriously as an actor whereas I think she’s just in it for the fame. (Not to say Henry has not used his looks but I believe he has only done so when he felt his script called for it.) Only time will tell.

  90. Ana says:

    THANK YOU TO ALL THE ORIGINAL HENRY CAVILL FANS FOR SPEAKING UP AND SAYING HENRY IS NOT GAY!!! Seriously you new bees who just watched man of steel and decide to hate on him need to go somewhere with that crap! He obviously is a hit and extremely sexy and gorgeous for people to start saying crap about him. I hate ignorant a-holes.

  91. Luc says:

    well, well, well… he is dating like everyone else of his age (Ellen, Gina, Henry, Kaley are young)

    Maybe he is trying and trying until he’ll meet me!!!!!! LOL

    I really think that when you break up a relationship is because it is not working for a time, it is not something that happens for one reason only.

    At least him and his PR team listen/read what people think. For me Gina was trashy and they looked very different and weird together. Now, Kaley is funny and nice but not elegant, I don’t think it will last for a medium-long term. I think they are very different. But if is just dating, is ok I let you for a while Henry LOL

  92. Ximena says:

    Dear Henry,
    please don’t listen your PR team (if it is true) or don’t be naive to get involved in people’s PR team. You don’t need this to get our attention or to avoid stupid gossips!
    You are gonna find the right woman as everyone else, don’t rush things just focus your time in work, family and give you a personal time.
