Henry Cavill is happily in a relationship with his girlfriend Natalie Viscuso, and he is determined to protect their happiness from any negativity.
In a May 2021 Instagram post, the Tudors actor addressed the growing social animosity surrounding his personal and professional life since making his relationship with the TV executive public. He acknowledged the well-intentioned but misplaced speculation and expressed the need to address the issue.
Cavill urged those expressing discontent or disdain through various means to cease, emphasizing that while online speculation can be entertaining, it ultimately harms the people he cares about most. He concluded by sharing his contentment in love and life and requested his fans’ happiness for him.
This isn’t the first time Cavill’s romantic life has garnered attention. In 2014, he briefly dated Kaley Cuoco before their public breakup, which sources attributed to a quick fizzle.
Cuoco jokingly referenced their short-lived romance in December 2020, evoking laughter during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. She admitted uncertainty about Cavill’s steeliness, a playful nod to his Superman role.
Following the Cuoco fling, Cavill’s relationship with 19-year-old Tara King when he was 33 raised eyebrows. He spoke highly of King’s protective nature and her ability to support him during challenging times. King’s acceptance of him as a regular person was something he cherished.
However, their relationship ended in May of that year due to differing priorities. They parted on amicable terms, with no animosity between them.
Cavill’s romantic history has often captured public interest, showcasing a series of attention-grabbing relationships over the years.
In 2009, Cavill was initially connected with the championship horse jumper. Two years later, he took the step of proposing. Whitaker shared her astonishment and joy at the proposal with the Belfast Telegraph in May 2011, revealing that she had believed they were gathering to celebrate his birthday.
Regrettably, in August 2012, the couple decided to part ways without much fanfare. According to an insider at the time, there was no dramatic falling out; they simply reached a mutual agreement that their relationship wasn’t thriving. They had actually separated three months prior.
During the autumn of 2012, Cavill entered into a relationship with Gina Carano, known for her role in The Mandalorian. A source close to Carano described her as spirited and noted that Cavill was someone who could match her energy. This insider shared their perspective with Us in June 2013, highlighting the positive dynamic they believed the couple had. However, their relationship was short-lived, and they separated shortly after. They briefly reunited in October 2013, only to make a final decision to end things in December 2014.
In the summer of 2013, the star of “Man of Steel” had a brief 10-day fling with Cuoco. A source informed Us in June of that year that their relationship faded as swiftly as it ignited, and despite the short-lived romance, they remained on good terms. They were spotted together in Los Angeles just one day before this report.
Reflecting on their short-lived romance, the star of “The Flight Attendant” shared with Cosmopolitan in April 2014 that her life took a turn after meeting Superman. Despite being in the industry for two decades, she had never experienced paparazzi attention until a few months prior. The sudden recognition was quite overwhelming for her.
In February 2016, at the age of 33, Cavill accompanied his then-19-year-old girlfriend, Tara King, to the Vanity Fair Oscars party. Their 13-year age gap sparked some criticism, but Cavill addressed the issue in an interview with Elle later that month. He emphasized that while age often signifies maturity, in their case, it wasn’t necessarily a determining factor. He spoke highly of King, describing her as fantastic. Cavill acknowledged that such age differences might evoke natural reactions, but he also shared his own experience of dating an older person when he was 19.
While working on the set of “Mission: Impossible — Fallout” in 2017, the star of “The Night Hunter” crossed paths with stuntwoman Cork. The two were in a relationship for approximately a year before parting ways in a low-key manner.
In April 2021, Cavill took to Instagram to officially announce his relationship with Viscuso, humorously mentioning a chess match they had. He wrote, “This is me looking quietly confident shortly before my beautiful and brilliant love Natalie, destroys me at chess.” Viscuso, who is the vice president of Legendary Entertainment television and digital studios, shared the same photo on her own page with a slightly different caption, playfully speculating if he let her win.
Their first appearance together on the red carpet came in October 2022, during the premiere of “Enola Holmes 2.”
