“Batman V. Superman’ star Henry Cavill believes his 19-year-old college student girlfriend is mature for her age.
The actor is 32-years-old.
The two have been romantically involved since October of 2015.
During an interview with Elle magazine, Cavill says that girlfriend Tara King is perfect for him.
“People say age is just a number. It’s actually real and true sign of someone’s maturity,” he said to the magazine. “But in this case, she’s fantastic.”
Although many feel that the actor is too old to be dating a teenager, he revealed he has only her best interests at heart, he said to Entertainment Tonight.
In fact, when the actor was 19-years-old himself, he dated an older woman.
“When I was 19, I was going out with a 32-year-old,” the actor stated to Elle.
He also said she taught him, “Things I can’t mention in this article.”
“If someone’s trying to intimidate me, male or female, I don’t respect them enough to be intimidated. But when I first met my girlfriend, I was super intimidated. I wanted to impress her. I was thinking, Don’t mess this up, man. You’ve gotta play your cards exactly right,” he quipped in the interview.
“The Tudors” actor is comfortable enough in his own skin not to worry about what others think of his life choices.
In fact he is so comfortable that he told “Tudors” producers that he had enough of the nude scenes that were becoming a regular thing for the character.
“‘Are you kidding me?’ I had to start telling the producers, ‘Stop making me take my clothes off.’ One year they said, “For the publicity shot, we’re going to have you shirtless holding a horse,” he revealed.
In response to the awkward situation, Cavill remarked, “I said, “Why the f**k am I shirtless? My character has changed. He’s a morose, depressed dude.” They’re like, “Yeah… but people love it.”
