Who Is Henry Cavill's Girlfriend? Tara King Is On A Different Path

Roll out that red carpet, because the Academy Awards are happening on Sunday night. Hollywood will be alive with glitz, glamour, and first-time celebrity presenters like J.J. Abrams, Dave Grohl, and Henry Cavill. When the Batman v Superman star walks the red carpet, you might be wondering who Henry Cavill's girlfriend is. If you've heard about their relationship before, it may have been in reference to their age difference, as 32-year-old Cavill's girlfriend, Tara King, is 19 and he has discussed the gap before.

"People say age is just a number. It's actually real and true sign of someone's maturity," he told Elle, according to People. "But in this case, she's fantastic." If you've done the math already, you'll know that the age difference between Cavill and King is 13 years. But this isn't Cavill's first experience with a May-December relationship. According to the Elle interview, when he was 19, he dated a 32-year-old woman, so he knows what it's like to be the younger half of a couple. And he learned a lot — in fact, he told the magazine it was "things I can't mention in this article." Ooh la la.

Of course, there's much more to this couple than their ages, so here's what else you should know about King.

Her Background

According to The Daily Mail, King's parents are Toni, an investment banker, and Johnathan, a PE teacher, in England. Before heading to university, she attended New Hall School in Chelmsford, Essex, located 30 minutes outside of London.

Where They Met

The Daily Mail speculated that the couple met at the posh London nightclub Mahiki in August. According to People, Cavill told Elle that he was actually nervous when they first met. "When I met my girlfriend, I was super intimidated. I wanted to impress her," he said. "I was thinking, Don't mess this up, man."

Going Public

Cavill and King's first public appearance was last October, when they were seen cozying up together at a rugby match at Twickenham Stadium in London, according to People. Naturally, heads turned to check out the Man of Steel and his new love.

College Life

According to The Daily Mail, King is currently attending Bristol University, studying the history of art.

Vacationing Together

The Daily Mail has reported that the couple has been on vacation several times together: They visited his parents in Jersey, went to New Zealand, and traveled to China.


Just in time for the Academy Awards on Sunday, Cavill and King arrived together at LAX airport on Thursday, as reported by Just jared. And before you know it, they'll be glammed up and walking the red carpet at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.
