Henry Cavill is completely in love with his stuntwoman girlfriend, Lucy Cork

Last month, The Sun announced that Henry Cavill had begun quietly dating someone new: a stunt woman named Lucy Cork. Henry hasn’t had an official girlfriend since he split with college student/teenager Tara King last year, so the idea that he was dating someone a little bit older than “college aged” and someone with a real job was refreshing. Apparently, Lucy and Henry met on the set of Mission: Impossible 6, where Henry is playing second fiddle to Tom Cruise’s increasingly waxy face. Lucy is the stuntwoman for Rebecca Ferguson, and Lucy has done lots of stunts for various women in various films over the past few years. Lucy and Henry became “event official” a month ago, when she was his date to a polo game in England (the photos in this post are from the polo game).

So, what’s new with Lucy and Henry? Well, he posted an Instagram of Lucy kicking ass in her boxing class/stunt training and he posted it with this long-ass message about love:

We’ve all been hurt, we’ve all got it wrong, trusted the wrong person, made the wrong bet, turned the wrong way, made THAT mistake. What we’ve experienced is important, it defines us. But what is more important, and often forgotten, is that we decide how it defines us. The experience, decision or moment itself does not. Others will almost always try and define you by past transgressions more quickly than your past successes.

I’ve made mistakes, I’ve been someone I’m not proud of plenty of times. I’ve fallen down. I’ve loved the wrong person. I’ve failed. I’ve been hurt. I’ve hurt. That’s life! In life we are going to get it wrong….alot. What I’ve tried to do and still try to do each time though is recognise those mistakes and mould them to my advantage. Make them a way to better myself. We’ve all had a bad experience thanks to someone else. Don’t let that bad experience decide how and who you are. Don’t let it hold you back from love or success or giving something a go. Don’t vent your pain onto or at others in an attempt to bring them down and hold them back and cry your fury to the world. Don’t let it turn you into the monster that hurt you.

Use that experience! Run with it. Take the sum of your past and make it your tool to approach the future with. Move forward and love the experiences you have, use them to define you and make you the best version of yourself that is humanely possible. Your life is yours and will be whatever you want it to be. Love, grow, pursue, strive, challenge yourself.

Be afraid so that you can be brave. The video above is what positive forward motion, determination, bravery, strong will, dedication and self respect looks like. This is my Lucy. She is one of the best stunt women in the world. She has defined herself. She continues to define herself. She grows, everyday. She is Lucy Cork because she says so.

You guys? I think this is sweet. Is that so wrong?? Like, I’m buying this. I’m buying it in a way I never bought his relationship with Tara King. I’m buying it because Henry has a type: women who are physically tough, women who kick ass. Like Gina Carano, and now Lucy Cork. I think it’s lovely. And he seems so proud and happy. Let them LIVE!!

    Lmao there was the funniest blind saying Lucy chose Henry after being shut down by the Lead(tom cruise) on that movie lol. And she was a 💩stirrer and never working on a cruise movie again.

  2. Nicole says:

    lol I don’t buy it but sure. He always seems extra in relationships which is why I don’t buy this IG post.

    • Karen says:

      The extra in the IG post made my eyes roll so hard! I just don’t get him or his schtick.

      It’s like he visited an inspirational quote tumblr and decided to write a word salad essay on motivation and loop the GF at the end because why not.

      • Sarah says:

        It’s times like this I’m thankful that George Clooney doesn’t have an IG account, frankly because his posts would be similar to Cavill’s: Word salad essay on motivation or just how in love he is with his significant other. The latter would be a word salad caption that’s a better fit for a Hallmark card. Usually, any IG post that has a picture of a couple with a caption just gushing over how in love they are with each other or has some form of those ‘twee’ type vacation photos of a guy being led around places by his girlfriend grabbing his hand like he’s being dragged there(when he isn’t) like that make me wonder when those photos posted there will either be removed or the caption will be re-written featuring a word salad essay about just how much stronger they are now versus the way the relationship ended that had left them devastated. It should be noted that I’m very proficient in the art of writing word salad essays topped with long, drawn out run-on sentences.

        Sorry for being O/T earlier, but I will say that I rolled my eyes at this too. If he really wants us to be convinced that he’s found twu wuv, then he should be featured in People Magazine where his family or close friends try to sell us on just how he’s head over heels in love. Not buying this at all.

    • Kathleen says:

      He seems kind of like a sad person to me. I don’t dislike him at all but he just always seems kind of unstable and sad to me. Also, his words here make no sense? Like sometimes people are upset and angry and it’s ok to cry and be upset, Henry. Punching your way out of situations isn’t actually the way to solve all problems for people. I just think he’s kind of a pathetic guy.

      • Jenny says:

        Kathleen: That’s how I feel about him too. And I also can’t stop believing he’s closeted and that’s why he acts so strange in all his relationships with women and post nauseating stuff like this on social media. I guess it could be construed as sweet but to me it mostly seems unhinged.

    • Des says:

      He’s the fat child who grew up into Henry Cavill but will always be the fat child bullied at school on the inside.

  3. Paris says:

    Henry, hire a stylist ASAP!
    His hat is killing me …

  4. Tig says:

    For heaven’s sake! I got exhausted just trying to read this-can’t imagine writing it! Was he this goofy during The Tudors? He just seems stuck at a high school level.

    • Cami says:

      I think Henry is sad and has issues. Couple years back in interview he stated he was bullied. He wasn’t always this fit. I think because of what happened to him at early age has stayed with him. I’m rooting for him that this is real.

  5. Originaltessa says:

    He’s a bizarre guy. I knew a couple of crazy hot guys in college that just killed my boner by having let’s say “off” personalities.

    • Kathleen says:

      He strikes me as the kind of man completely incapable of being with a woman his own age. He’s 34 years old now but still reads like he has the mentality of 24 year old. Thankfully, this girl is at least in her 20′s and has her own thing going. She’s not like 18 like the last one. But she is still less “famous” than him and now he’s getting attention for being with her. I just don’t seem him as someone capable of being with a woman who is very career oriented/super intellectual or has a lot of opinions. He will always be with younger women because I just don’t think he can actually handle a woman his own age.

  6. seesittellsit says:

    Mmmmm-hmmmm. And I am the reincarnation of Carmen Miranda.

  7. Rainlily says:

    C’mon. It’s all PR.

  8. Ankhel says:

    Is that his & hers hats?!

    • Kat says:

      Those hats were either being given out or sold to everyone at the event…check out some of the Polo event videos and there’s a stack of them there. Just a souvenir of the event. Feel sad so many people have nothing better to do than spend time putting others down:( So pathetic:(

  9. Barrett says:

    I just laughed thinking of my husband, an accountant, doing this. Um never.

    • third ginger says:

      Barrett, I identify. I once described my husband here on CB as someone who would not tell you if he was on fire. Laid back, stoic. Married 35 years.

      • SilverUnicorn says:

        I am with you, ladies. Hubby would laugh his bum off after writing the 1st sentence 😂😂

        And Henry, please. I box like that, have nearly double age that your sweetheart and my husband would never put me on Instagram anyway.
        Sounds fake and infantile.

      • third ginger says:

        I did not not write the HA HA HA comment!! I reported it.

      • SilverUnicorn says:


        God, do we have hackers here too? I always read your comments with interest, seemed strange to me too ❤

  10. Ankhel says:

    …. have they killed the real Lucy and hidden the body? Because he keeps banging on about doing wrong things, hurting people, and running with your mistakes. Also, this here woman is Lucy Cork, because she says so!

  11. Neelyo says:

    I wish he’d get back with Kaley Cuoco. I really thought those kids would make it.

  12. anonymous says:

    I am sorry but he is way too extra, he is embarassing himself at this point.

  13. Lily says:

    Has he ever been in anything good?

    • Ankhel says:

      The Man From U.N.C.L.E was pretty decent, and let’s not forget, he turned up in an episode of Midsomer Murders!

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        Oh my god, which one? I love that show.

        I really liked him in Man from U.N.C.L.E. and I absolutely loved the chemistry between the three leads. As a person he seems … intense and a little extra but like a nice enough guy so I won’t sh*t on a man for being super gushy and borderline philosophical on social media. If THAT is his only issue. Eh.

      • Ankhel says:

        First episode of the 2003 season. Big guilty pleasure! As for Man from U.N.C.L.E, I reckon he had WAY more chemistry with his male costar, than with the girl.

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        They did have excellent chemistry, I have to say. And he wasn’t supposed to have chemistry with Alicia, was he? Armie Hammer is not my usual type but he charmed me off the couch in that movie.

  14. Kathleen says:

    I think he meant it to be sweet but it read as super desperate and attention seeking to me. Is there a reason he had to be super public like this? He’s now directed a ton of press attention towards this 20 something girl. Maybe that’s what he wants? I don’t know. All I know is that reading this my first thought wasn’t “aww that’s sweet.” My thought was, “This guy seems unstable and I hope he’s Ok.”

  15. Emily says:

    Her eyebrows are the worst. They make her look deranged.

  16. Lili says:

    This smells like PR spirit. What if they break up? It’s been about 4 months into this relationship and his that deep.

  17. Lili says:

    Waiting to hear that he got her a promise ring. Her stunt career won’t last long if he wants kids ASAP.

  18. Kathleen says:

    Here’s the real question: do we think Amy Adams and Gal Gadot (who are best friends in real life) text each other and laugh at him? Because I do.

  19. thaisajs says:

    I like the idea of Henry Cavill, but the reality of him continues to disappoint, whether it’s his inappropriately young girlfriends, dubious fashion choices or tenuous grasp on grammar.

  20. Mgsota says:

    Kaiser, I’m a little surprised that you didn’t throw up a little in your mouth when reading that post…and that you seem so…mmm…I don’t know…uncharacteristically optimistic about new love.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      If she’s anything like me, and I would also normally vom a little here, she is currently using up all her cynicism for the Führer of the free world. I’m pretty desperate for anything harmless and even saccharine.

  21. graymatters says:

    It’s like Superman and Oprah got together and had a super-sized fortune cookie at a fusion bistro.

    So just add “in bed” to the script periodically and it will become fun date night food.

  22. AbbyRose says:

    I think it’s nice that he’s proud of his tough girlfriend. He’s so good looking he could just rotate through a bunch of models like Leo but he doesn’t. The rest of the post is a head scratcher. Maybe he’s indirectly acknowledging that dating a college student was a mistake. Or maybe he’s super crazy about Lucy. He seems well meaning.

  23. Dumbledork says:

    I did like him in Man from UNCLE, and even a little bit in Man of Steel. Michael Shannon made that movie though. His little post does makes me laugh. Maybe because if the mister ever typed anything like this I would just crack up. “She is Dumbledork because she says so.” I might have to either check his mental stability? Or maybe just change the locks….

  24. Veronica says:

    It’s telling that the fact of his girlfriend being a stuntwoman is the most interesting thing about him.

  25. elle says:

    Does he imagine anyone is looking to him for love advice? Surely we’ve already gotten all we need from Kristen Bell/Dax Shepherd.

  26. Rae says:

    Every news update on HC makes my girl boner shrivel up a little bit more.

    What happened Henry? I would have rode him like a bronco in The Tudors’ era, now I find him a massive turnoff.

    He’s just too extra. It always seems fake.

  27. Tricia says:

    OMG…Whyyyyyy are they wearing matching hats???

  28. blonde555 says:

    Not buying it. I’m more inclined to believe he’s with the other man beside Lucy and she’s a great fluffy beard. Nice try tho.

  29. Elisa says:

    Henry, sweetie, you’ve been with her for a hot minute, and you still have a few months until Justice League rolls out: spare us.

    On a positive note, everyone is too busy gushing over him gushing over his girlfriend to pay attention to Josh “Cheating Feminist” Whedon for the moment. Wasn’t that nice and convenient of him, to confess his being in lust with Lucy right when the guy reshooting Justice League is being skewered left, right, and sideways?

  30. nyguy10 says:

    Am I the only one who thinks this reads like an apology? Apparently her response was something along the lines of “thanks for your kind words”. I’m thinking Hank screwed up big time & is trying to appease his new lady friend publicly.

    • Elisa says:

      I think so, too, but not so much an apology to her as it is for his choice.

      I mean, he captioned a picture of himself working out months ago, and he said that he wasn’t destroying his body, just working out and being as fit as he needs to be, and that was a lot of what people were saying on a previous picture of him working out. They were criticizing him for getting too muscular and aging himself, etc, and he responded to those comments, in a roundabout way.

      Then in more recent posts from the MI6 set, a couple of times he said in edits of the original captions that he read the comments, and then responded to those comments. So, I kinda have the feeling he was trying to respond to rude comments about the relationship without saying to back off directly (he tried that last year with Tara, and it had the opposite effect).

  31. Bee says:

    Fairly certain this Instagram post will be added to his list of regrets at some point in the near future. He’s……..weird.

  32. The Schnauz says:

    He’s a super awkward nerd in a hot man body. I think he probably suffers with reading social cues as well.

  33. magnoliarose says:

    He seems like he might have a mild case of Aspergers or social anxiety. His awkwardness has a quality to it that seems like that to me. I think of his interviews.
    I have no idea why people think he is gay. Possibly bi but gay? No.
    It doesn’t irritate me what he wrote and I hope these crazy kids work. He is gushy but I think he just thinks she is an amazing woman with a boss attitude. Eh, he’s harmless.

    ETA He has serious social anxiety so that makes sense that his communication would be odd.

  34. Isa says:

    There are two options…
    1. He’s lying
    2. He’s lying to himself

    HOW can you be in love with someone you JUST have met?
    HOW can you say you made mistakes (if I were one of his exes I would kill him lol) and say you know now you are making a mistake and continue there?!!!
    If you are aware of your new partner ‘mistakes’ and clearly it bothers you (because he is giving an excuse through his words) why you continue there?

    Come on, react! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. Mick says:

    LOLL you lot are so triggered by her!
