    Another one bites the dust, are there really no single men left in Hollywood anymore? Most of them are either married, gay or engaged.

    Attention Says:

    Please tell me he’s not really gay and doing this just before Superman is about to come out! Timing of this…a little suspicious, I might add.

    Sweet News Says:

    @Attention: Oh, he’s 100% not gay but just in love hence his getting married? It’s hard to believe but there are straight men out there…..

    His career is going great and maybe felt necessary to settle down with the woman he loves?

    Please tell me your not gay (not that it really matters) and just wishful thinking that he is???? Not every star on this site has to be gay to be happy. Maybe, sometimes they are not hiding anything…

    I say congrats, she’s beautiful. Not suspicious but perfect timing for both. I wish them luck.

    Cavill marries a NAME and $ Says:

    Cavill will marry an average girl looking just because her family is successful and well respected.

    Good luck to this couple…..he might cheat on her a couple of times once he gets really famous and reaches stardom in Hollyweird.
    She will forgive him…..I mean It’s Henry cavill, UK Superman right.

    That is nice, But riding a horse does not make you an athlete. I have seen some pretty out of shape people be successful show jumpers. The house is the athlete.

    This. I really thought he was straight until I read this. The timing is…telling. The last Superman had to get married after getting the role, too.

    @Carey — I’m not sure about her not being interested in attention. She’s endorsed lots of riding-related products in the past – a video game, among others – and has announced the happy news on her website about five minutes after the proposal.
    Also, apparently she’s been known to beat her horses; I don’t think I can get behind that.

    Cavill marries a HORSE BEATER Says:

    She is well known to beat her horses and uses razor blades to make them obey .
    She is a cruel brat.

    Jime Says:

    buuu no :( But I hope it works, it’s good she’s not a star, so maybe they can keep it low profile. I also like that she’s not a fake-bimbo.model

    @ Tom

    Equestrian is an Olympic sport so it is considered athletic she is in the Equestrian team in Britain.


    Unless there is physical proof or a suit brought against her for beating horses its speculation and hearsay. She isn’t a celebrity, she isn’t asking to be one by following Henry all over the place putting herself in the public eye, Actually as of now she wasn’t endorsing perfume, Jewelry, clothing line or a dumb Ice cream commercial. If she was trying to ride his coat tails into a celebrity life she would be all over this and really she isn’t.

    @ Jime

    I agree she isn’t any fake actress or model in HW it seems they have kept a low profile they are not competing with one another for fame. Reason I think it will work out for them.

    Michelle Says:

    Horse beater or not, she’s definitely shady to me.

    Henry NEVER talks about his private life, and how do we hear about his relationship with Ellen to begin with, and then their subsequent engagement? Via Ellen’s website. If that doesn’t make you suspicious, IDK what will!
