Henry Cavill is dating a Bristol History of Art fresher

Superman finds his Lois Lane


Superman star Henry Cavill has been linked to Tara King, a History of Art fresher at Bristol the Mail on Sunday revealed. 

Tara, 19, is believed to have met Cavill, 32, at Mahiki in August. According to social media, they’ve been dating ever since.

Tara was spotted with the heart-throb in the Twickenham crowd as England were defeated by Australia in the Rugby World Cup earlier this month.


Wearing an England shirt, bearded Cavill, who most recently starred in Guy Ritchie’s action film A Man From U.N.C.L.E, was pictured with his arm around King, as they laughed and chatted despite England’s loss.

Tara came to Bristol last month, leaving the home she shares with her mother Toni, 50, an investment banker, and PE teacher father Jonathan, also 50.

She was privately-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 the Mail asked about her daughter’s romance yesterday, Tara’s mum said: “That’s something you would need to speak to her about, not me.”

Cavill’s publicist did not respond to requests for comment.
