Henry Cavill Joined by Mom and Girlfriend on Red Carpet
Henry Cavill’s mother approves of the actor’s romance with his teenage girlfriend.
The British star was joined by the two most important women in his life as he hit the red carpet for the London premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice on Tuesday, with his mom Marianne wearing a hot pink gown, while 19-year-old college student Tara King showed off her curves in a floor-length black cutout dress.
Cavill smiled widely for the cameras as he posed with his leading ladies, clearly happy to have his mom support his new romance.
The Man of Steel actor, 32, first became linked to Bristol University student Tara in October, when they were spotted attending a rugby match at London’s Twickenham Stadium together.
They made their red carpet debut at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party last month, and Cavill recently insisted the 13-year age gap has never been an issue for the new couple.
“People say age is just a number,” he told Elle magazine. “It’s actually real and true sign of someone’s maturity. But in this case, she’s fantastic.”
Cavill also revealed he was desperate to make a good impression on the pretty blonde the moment he laid eyes on her: “When I met my girlfriend, I was super intimidated,” he recalled. “I wanted to impress her. I was thinking, ‘Don’t mess this up, man.'”
The big European premiere was somewhat subdued as it took place hours after the deadly terror attacks in Brussels, Belgium. Over 30 people have been reported dead and more than a hundred were left injured after two explosions rocked Brussels international airport and the Maelbeek metro station on Tuesday morning.
The incidents prompted studio bosses at Warner Bros. to cancel all red carpet interviews at the highly-anticipated launch, although Cavill and his co-stars, including Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and Amy Adams, still made a splash for fans as they arrived at the bash.
A statement released by movie bosses prior to the premiere read: “Our hearts go out to the victims of recent terrorist attacks, their families and the communities impacted around the world.
“Rather than yield to terror, we’ve decided to join the film’s fans and move forward with the London premiere of Batman V Superman this evening.”
