Henry Cavill: 'Women hit on me in front of my girlfriend'

Henry Cavill finds it disrespectful when women hit on him in front of his girlfriend.

The 32-year-old actor has been dating 19-year-old Tara King since meeting at a nightclub last year and Henry admitted it can be annoying when women ignore his girlfriend to try to chat him up.

He told the Sunday Times Style: "I've heard some things in my time, I have to say. I'd best not say what. I don't mind it - not unless I'm with my girlfriend and someone is being complimentary to me in order to disrespect her. People who don't respect other people's feelings really get my goat."

Henry also claimed that he is the victim of catcalls from women and finds it uncomfortable.

He said: "I do think there's a bit of a double standard, you know. I mean, if a girl shouts something like, 'Oi, love, fancy a s**g?' to me as I walk past, I do sometimes wonder how she'd feel if a builder said that to her. Although, of course, I wouldn't feel physically threatened, as she might."

Meanwhile, Henry was recently forced to defend the large age-gap between him and his girlfriend, saying: "People say age is just a number. It's actually real and true sign of someone's maturity. But in this case, she's fantastic."
