Henry Cavill wants you to mind the relationship, yo.
The Batman v Superman star told the U.K.’s Sunday Times that he doesn’t like it when women openly approach him in front of girlfriend Tara King. Yes, I know she’s 19, and yes, it seems pretty suspect, but I get it. Handsome dudes have trouble, too?
“I’ve heard some things in my time, I have to say,” he told the Times of amorous fans. “I’d best not say what. I don’t mind it – not unless I’m with my girlfriend and someone is being complimentary to me in order to disrespect her. People who don’t respect other people’s feelings really get my goat.”
Cavill and King, 19, have been dating since at least October 2014, when they were spotted together in London. Which is illegal in the states, but who knows the English rules (I don’t!).
Cavill doesn’t wanna be a buzzkill, though. He told the Times of being in touch with his feelings – especially in regard to King – that, “everyone should be entitled to their full range of emotions.”
“Whether they display them in public or not is a different debate, but, um – sorry! – yes, the acknowledgment that people feel things is important, on both sides of the, um, sex fence,” the actor said.
While Cavill seems to think he’s met his match, he does ultimately admit that “the pressure that comes from dating someone in the public eye is enormous.”
Yep. And as a celeb, especially one who takes roles “for the paycheck,” sometimes you gotta suck it up, dude.
