As Superman, Henry Cavill can fly faster than a speeding bullet and jump tall buildings in a single bound. But it seems that without this cape and big red “S” he can be easily defeated in five moves. “This is me looking quiet and confident in front of my beautiful and brilliant love Natalie [Viscuso], destroy me at chess,” Henry, 39, captioned the photo he shared on April 10, 2021, making his relationship “Instagram Official.” Natalie also shared the photo to her account, writes: “Is my dear Henry just teaching me how to play chess…or…maybe he made me win?”
This sudden and low-key announcement caused some buzz. In the past, Henry has been romantically linked to stuntwoman Lucy Corkstylist Susie RedmondMMA fighter/actress Gina Carano, Tara King, and Kaley Cuoco (although the flight attendant star told Cosmopolitan in 2014 that she and Henry only dated for 10 days in 2013.) “There is, of course, a flip side to that [fame]too,” Henry said The rake in 2017 (u/t PEOPLE). “As soon as I got into a relationship, a lot of hate was directed at me as well as the girl, saying that I had changed. I haven’t changed a bit. But you have to take it all in your stride, there are positives and negatives to it, but ultimately it’s hugely flattering to care so much about people.”
“As long as it doesn’t hurt anyone in my life, it’s a good thing. Once it starts affecting people in my life, that’s when I’m at a disadvantage,” he added. On October 27, 2022, after dating for over a year, she and Henry made their red carpet debut as a couple. At the premiere of the Netflix movie Enola Holmes 2 the blonde beauty rocked a vanilla strapless gown, a bright red lip and classic black pumps. Her dashing beau looked dapper in a gray pinstripe suit, crimson tie and black dress shoes. Talk about a show-stopping red carpet debut!
