Henry Cavill apparently has a new girlfriend, and she’s not a college freshman

Cast members on set of 'Mission Impossible 6' filming in Paris

More than a year ago, Henry Cavill finally broke up with his teenage girlfriend. Cavill, who is currently 34 years old, met a college freshman named Tara King at some point in 2015. They became involved very quickly, and she got invitations to travel around the world with him. He even took her to the Oscars in 2016. I always wondered: isn’t she missing class?? But so it goes when you’re a movie star dating a college student, I guess. Whatever happened between them, it was bad for his image and it made him seem very creepy (IMO). I’m saying that as someone who actually liked him with Gina Carano, his off-and-on girlfriend for several years, circa 2012-2013. They seemed well-suited for each other. Well, guess what? The Sun claims that Cavill has found love with another stuntwoman!

Superman star Henry Cavill has grown close to a stuntwoman on the set of the new Mission: Impossible film. Pals say Henry, 34, and Lucy Cork, 25, who used to compete in pole dancing contests, have become intimate during film breaks in New Zealand. The Jersey-born actor and Lucy, of Cobham, Surrey, have told friends they are likely to “go public” in November at the premiere of super-hero film Justice League.

A source said: “Their relationship is the talk of the Mission: Impossible 6 film set. When Lucy is around, Henry goes so weak at the knees it’s like Superman has had a dose of kryptonite. She is super excited to be getting close and personal to Superman. She jokes she’s Lois Lane, the superhero’s fictional lover.”

Agents for Henry did not respond to requests for a comment.

[From The Sun]

You can see some social media photos of her at The Sun. Her Instagram is set to “private,” so I can’t creep on her, and she hasn’t updated her Twitter in a while. The vibe I’m getting from her is that she’s pretty low-key and normal, and sort of Gina Carano-esque. Like, she’s very strong and fit, and I think that’s Cavill’s “type” – he likes to be with a woman who spends as much time in the gym as he does. He likes the look of a lady who could conceivably kick his ass. So, no, I don’t hate this. Plus, she’s not a college freshman, so I already approve.

    Well I guess he found a new beard?

    • anonymous says:

      lol what make you guys think that he is gay ? Because every attractive actor in Hollywood is supposed to be gay ? Because He has gay friends ?

      • LAK says:

        A sure sign that you’ve made it in Hollywood are gay rumours.

        Every.single.time. regardless of the truth.

        No need to get offended if people claim that such and such actor is gay. It happens to all of them. Means they’ve made it.

      • third ginger says:

        Lak, you are not wrong, but as I say below, it is also distasteful. All the laughing and snickering is offensive.

      • Nicole says:

        Lol it’s been rumored for a while that he is gay. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      • third ginger says:

        Rumored being the key word. Sorry I can’t LOL at people coming out or not coming out. My daughter was the president of the LGBT rights group at her college. she helped a number of young people come out. I know zero about Cavill, but I fail to see how this is so hilarious with any actor. Maybe I am too old to appreciate the humor.

      • Sixer says:

        He’s just such a perfect gay pin up, datalounge claimed him! I mean, do we even care anyway?

      • Sami says:


        I think you miss the subtext here and the overt text on DL. The reason they cling so hard to this gay theory with Cavill is the same reason they did for Hugh Jackman. Its the fact that their choice of women fails the “looks” test in some peoples eyes. So Cavill dates “mascular” women and to these people that means he prefers a man and is in the closet about it. Just think about that crap for a second. Jada Pinkett has a six pack and Will is therefore gay. Camilla is homely and therefore Charles is gay. Google the Obamas under this subject. Apparently Michelles toned arms mean that Barrack was gay.

        Of course all hot men will be declared gay at some point but it is the militancy with which they come at men who are partnered with the “wrong woman” thats a problem. Of the first four comments to this story, THREE were about his sexuality and I have no doubt the reason they have stopped coming is that the team is doing noble work to moderate them out!

      • LAK says:

        Sixer: on a serious note, i’m not attracted to actors though i enjoy my internet boyfriend James Norton.

        If James Norton turned out to be gay, i’d still enjoy him. No skin off my nose if they are or aren’t.

      • Nicole says:

        LAK people thought Obama was gay? News to me.
        I don’t find Cavill attractive regardless and the whole “dating a college freshman” was enough to put a nail in that coffin

      • LAK says:

        Nicole: nope, not me. That’s Sami saying that. News to me.

        Henry Cavill is your typical public school boy to me. Hasn’t grown out of it.

        And yes….dating children has forever put me off him even though i don’t find him attractive at all AND the fact that he is an actor which is always a dealbreaker for me.

      • Sixer says:

        Sami – chill m’dear, I was only messing about. And Datalounge thinks everyone it fancies is gay, regardless of who they date. Mostly also messing around.

        LAK – I have at least a gazillion internet boyfriends. Based solely on fanciability. I don’t really care if they’re straight or gay or nice or horrible. Cos these famous types can’t actually be real, can they? They just exist inside my tellybox or my laptop, not in the real world. So it really doesn’t matter what traits they have. It’s all pretend!

      • LAK says:

        Sixer: exactly. Plus working around them has shown me the personality traits required for their jobs. For professional purposes i put up, BUT for personal life? Nope. Nada. Never.

    • Adrien says:

      Whoa! This is the first time I have heard of that “Cavill is gay” rumor. My gaydar has not gone off on Henry. Let me check if its defective or if it needs recalibration *points it on BCoop*.

    • Talie says:

      I’ve heard the opposite…that he’s a bit of a horn dog when it comes to women.

      • jetlagged says:

        But Talie, don’t you see that is proof he actually is gay? According to the new internet logic, the more of a public horn dog spectacle a guy makes of himself, the more he is trying to cover for something else. *rolls eyes*

    • Tinker says:

      Yup! Seems like it! She’s a better choice too since she’s not in her teens and has a job. Good job WME. Though, not so sure if her past will come to haunt both her and him?

  2. OhDear says:

    The dog (Kal) is gorgeous!

  3. Ali says:

    This guy is not fooling anyone.

  4. NASTYGirl says:

    We all know what his type is LOL. You can cover it up as much as you want Henry but all these “girlfriends” aren’t fooling anyone.

    • Sami says:

      Why so many of these comments? Because he dates physically active buff girls? Because if so, grow up! A woman with some muscle isnt a man! And the men who love her are not gay.

      But if its based on other “evidence”, then present it

      • JSDFK says:

        Calm in Sami, it’s not that deep. He’s a big boy I’m sure he don’t care about some comment on celebitchy..

      • third ginger says:

        Sami, I agree. It’s very distasteful. Kaiser and other CB writers never do this. This is blind gossip stuff. I am the mother of a gay child. This is creepy.

      • Sami says:


        Its clearly much deeper than you can comprehend. You dont get to pop into a mostly female site and insist a man is gay because he dates women that doesnt meet your idiotic standard of beauty. We see this crap with guys like Hugh Jackman too. And so what if he is gay? Go and reflect on your poor character.

      • JSDFK says:

        Sami, I’m gay myself and he pings the radar so.. your point is moot in that regard. I think you may want to have a word with the women over at whodatedwho then if that’s your reasoning because those women there are the ones who seem to have a problem with Henry’s taste in girlfriends, not I.

      • Silver Unicorn says:


        Do you know him or have met him personally? Bit curious how someone can ping your gayradar if you only saw him/her in pictures or movies….

        I even totally dislike Cavill (he comes across as annoying to me) but defining him gay because he gives the idea of being one or he dates muscular women sounds like a stereotype…. at that point my own husband would be gay too, my footballer’s legs are bigger and more muscular than his….

      • JSDFK says:

        LOL nothing to do with stereotype or his dating muscular women sweetie, and yes I have met the man. That’s all you need to know.

      • Hale says:

        Silver Unicorn

        If you’re not gay yourself you wouldn’t understand.

      • Anon says:

        Always the case that it’s married women who feel the need to defend Henry . . .

      • Silver Unicorn says:


        The fact I am not gay makes me dumb then?

        Nice prejudice, eh?


        You hadn’t said that in your previous comments. Fair enough then.

  5. Shauna says:

    Seeing as there is no detail about Henry and this Lucy girl anywhere online can we assume this is another fan made story? Is there some old granny locked up somewhere flapping over his posters (that they printed off google themselves because you know they have so much time on their hand ::scoff:: ) who thought hey it’s time to dramatise again?!

  6. anonymous says:

    Anyway that women Lucy Cork is very beautiful and way more appropriate for him than the last girlfriend .

  7. Alix says:

    Don’t know anything about him as a person, but for my money, the most gorgeous Superman ever.

  8. Fee says:

    She’s hot! Him not so much!

  9. Alexis says:

    Good for him. I’ve wondered why he’s been looking happy and relaxed these past few months. Now we know why. If they make each other happy then whats the problem? Wish them both all the best, especially Lucy if some of his crazy fans are anything to go by. Hold strong girl.

  10. Maria F. says:

    who writes this drivel? She is his kryptonite? Goes weak? She is his Lois Lane?

    Must have been an intern at the Sun.

  11. NeoCleo says:

    He is a very pretty man and I really enjoy looking at him. In other news, water is wet.

  12. Elisa says:

    What I find stupidly convenient is that, with Tara, we had evidence of their relationship 5-6 prior to the premiere of BvS (with them having looked up maybe two months prior), and the fact he was so much older than she turned the tide (rightfully) against him. You had d-bag males one one side saying of course he deserved to be dating a 19 year old when women his own age get old and fat and just want kids and he’s HENRY F-ING CAVILL, he just wants to bang everyone as a handsome man of his status; then you had those of us with any sense on the other side condemning him.

    Then you had the movie flop, BADLY. There was a little transitional period, but Tara went off into the wind, never to be spoken of again unless as a reminder that her former boyfriend was a creep who didn’t like it when people said anything disparaging about her because it got his goat (never mind that I’m sure people said nasty things about Gina Carson and Ellen Whitaker and never said a word in their defense).

    Oh, and also, he was a controlling b-stard that hates opinionated women.

    Cut to now, when Wonder Woman is blowing BvS and Man of Steel out of the water, with everyone debating whether Gal Gadot was getting a raw deal because Henry got $14 million collectively for Man to Steel, with how many issues with the standalone Batfleck film, and now Justice League debuting this fall, it is so irritatingly handy for a newspaper to be announcing this relationship right just now, 5-6 prior to the movie coming out, before the sh-tstorm can barrel in.

    Sure, she’s younger than him, but not super young, so everyone should be kinda okay with that, and he won’t get hit on that front. And he’s all weak in the knees around her, awww, isn’t he so nice and not-controlling like that last story said? And since they’re so much in love already, surely they will be able to “go public” in November and take the JL ride in stride (just ignore the fact that the public is finding out about it right just now, when the movie where they will go public is several months out). It’s okay, she’s actual Lois Lane, right? She’s got this, guys.

    While it’s entirely possible that, as sugary-sweet and diabetes-inducing as that description of the two of them together is true, the way in which the rollout is beginning already, considering how out of control it got last time, I’m smelling his PR team trying to take the reins before the horse bolts.

  13. JustJen says:

    Wow..she looks a lot like Gina. The 19 yr old threw me not just because of her age, but she’s blonde. I snorted when I read that he wants to play Bond.

  14. HotBuns says:

    Why are his fans still convinced he’s straight? Perez outed him years ago and he was never wrong about anyone he outed. Plus he knew him and his circle of friends back in his WeHo days in LA.

  15. African Sun says:

    Guys Henry Cavill seriously looks like this car Instagrammer called Tom Exton.

    Gorgeous, sexy English men.

  16. Drole says:

    I see the writer is trying to be on Henry’s good terms again 😉

    ….What kind of barfy journalism is that??

  18. Urban Shaw says:

    And what if he does? His life his preference.

  19. Hello says:

    Theres somethong off with this guy I mean he’s hot yeah but he lacks sex appeal.

  20. RULA says:

    Lucy is a pole dancer, not just a stuntwoman. There are videos about her on Youtube… his fandom already found them and know about. Also she posted a pic of his dog, when her IG was open… she isn’t that low key. She doesn’t look any different from his previous blonde gf.

    • Ali says:

      Who cares if someone pole dances! You think that’s the worst someone could be doing? LOL! Try pole dancing yourself hun, then we’ll see what you have to say. 😉

      • RULA says:

        Just an observation about her professions and being low key 😉 No, he could date worse, lol

      • Yagetme says:

        Well tbh she has been lowkey to this point. A group of fangirls inspecting every last pixel and making something out of nothing is usual when it comes to Cavill.

      • Great Hawn says:

        @Senses, I’ll go as far as to assume she’s done something awful directly to you not just in general (in your eyes). Otherwise your bitterness is unfounded.

  21. Rae says:

    *comes out of hiding* Have the trolls gone? Phew

  22. Tef says:

    Okay enough!! Whens my turn with Henry? Come on dude share the love over this side of the stream if you know what I mean. 😉 haha

  23. Yeah says:

    You know when you find your favourite shirt from under the file of laundry and you assume it’s clean but then discover a stain. Yeah , thats Henry.
