He's the new Superman and tipped to play sexy Christian Grey in the movie of erotic bestseller 50 Shades Of Grey – so little wonder actor Henry Cavill has landed a new leading lady in his life, American actress Gina Carano.
The 29-year-old star of TV series The Tudors, cast as Superman in the forthcoming movie Man Of Steel, met Carano in September.
In August, The Mail on Sunday Diary revealed that Henry had split with his long-term fiancee, showjumper Ellen Whitaker, 26, leaving her heartbroken. Ellen, part of the famous Whitaker equestrian dynasty, subsequently moved to Newcastle with her best friend Jennifer.
Ellen is said to be devastated by the news that her former fiance has now found love with 30-year-old Carano, who has posed for Playboy and is a martial arts expert.
‘Henry dated a London estate agent called Jessica after Ellen, but they split up,’ says a source.
‘He met Gina in September and they’ve been taking it slowly since then. He’s gearing up for a publicity tour for Man Of Steel which comes out next year and is spending more time in the US. It’s early days but he’s quite taken with her.’
