Back in December 2014, we got a tip that Henry Cavill, then 31 years old, was dating a 21-year-old lady who absolutely loved to hunt and brag about all of the animals she killed. It seemed like Henry likes women who are A) a lot younger than him and B) sort of sketchy. Well, Henry might have a new girlfriend. She’s 19 years old (he’s 32 now). She’s a freshman university student in England. Ugh. I mean, she’s legal and everything but what in the world would a 32-year-old movie star have to say to a 19-year-old college freshman? You can see the 19-year-old in these photos. She looks a bit like Chelsy Davy to me.
As a beautiful blonde in her first few weeks of university, Tara King will undoubtedly have caught the eye of countless young suitors. The bad news for them is that they’ll need a pocketful of kryptonite to get anywhere near her. For unknown to her fellow freshers, the 19-year-old is spoken for – and the lucky man is Superman star Henry Cavill, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.
Miss King was spotted cosying up to the Hollywood heart-throb in the crowd at Twickenham as England played Australia in the Rugby World Cup earlier this month. Dressed in an England jersey and sporting a beard, Cavill, 32 – star of the 2013 film Man Of Steel – held his arm around the Bristol University history of art student as they chatted and joked together, despite England’s defeat. The couple are believed to have met in August at fashionable London nightclub Mahiki. According to social media, they have been seeing each other ever since.
Privately-educated Miss King headed off to university last month after leaving the home she shares with her mother Toni, 50, an investment banker, and PE teacher father Jonathan, also 50. She was educated at New Hall School in Chelmsford, Essex, where fees for full-time boarders are £27,000-a-year. A source said: ‘At school she was really popular, especially with the boys, and always having a laugh. She was very sporty and played hockey and netball.’
When asked about her daughter’s romance yesterday, Miss King’s mother said: ‘That’s something you would need to speak to her about, not me.’ Cavill’s publicist did not respond to requests for comment.
Well, now we know why Henry has been getting pap’d in England these days. He’s sticking around London to spend more time with his teenage girlfriend. Here’s the thing… would you feel differently about this if he was dating a 19-year-old model instead of a 19-year-old college student? I think I might feel like that scenario might be less skeevy, although I would be rolling my eyes at both scenarios, let’s be real. I’m just saying, I think it’s the “college freshman” thing that bugs me just as much as the “she’s 19 and he’s 13 years older” thing.
