Henry Cavill was Intimidated by Tara King

Henry Cavill may have been in many relationships but he never got so much backlash for any other relationship except for that with Tara King. The reason for this was their noticeable age gap. While Cavill was 32 when he dated her, King was only 19 years of age. Despite it all, he fought against the public eye and continued that relationship for as long as he could. Speaking with Elle, he opened up about how meeting his then-girlfriend came to be.

“When I met my girlfriend, I was super intimidated.” He continued,“I wanted to impress her. I was thinking, Don’t mess this up, man. You’ve gotta play your cards exactly right.”

He spoke about how although many would expect King to be intimidated by his presence, seeing that he is a big-name celebrity, that was not the case at all. In time though, he came to notice how intimidated by her he was. All he wanted to do was impress her and make her smile. She was a powerful force in his life he did not expect to meet. One that he found much more mature than she might appear to be.

Henry Cavill’s Opinion on Tara King

Henry Cavill admitted in the interview with Elle that he understood why there were so many doubts and comments regarding Tara King and his relationship. However, he was not one to think too much about the same. He agreed that with age comes maturity, but in his then-girlfriend’s case, her mind was already a ways away from him.

“People say, ‘Age is just a number.’ A lot of times it’s not just a number. It’s actually a real and true sign of someone’s maturity. But in this case, she’s fantastic.” He continued, “When I was 19, I was going out with a 32-year-old.”

He got even more candid regarding his own time as a 19-year-old boy. He explained that when Cavill too was of the same age, he found himself dating a 32-year-old woman who taught him much in his life.
