What You Didn't Know About Gina Carano And Henry Cavill's Fling

Actor Henry Cavill and former MMA fighter Gina Carano once turned heads as Hollywood's hottest couple, but their romance was quite up and down. The pair first began dating in September 2012, but they broke up that following summer, per E! News. Despite their brief break, the two appeared to be back on in October 2013 when they got spotted on a romantic date in Rome, Italy.

They seemed to be going steady, especially after they adopted a puppy together in January 2014. Even their dog breeder took to social media to gush over their experience with the famous couple, telling E! News that it "was so great working with Henry," and "getting to meet him as well as Gina was truly a treat!" As for how the two interacted as a couple? The breeder shared that "both Henry and Gina are genuine and a joy to be around." Although the two seemingly had made strides toward their future, E! News reported in December 2014 that the couple split for good.

As fans await Season 2 of Netflix's Witcher — which Cavill stars in — there is a renewed curiosity in his love life. Keep scrolling for more details about the pair's whirlwind romance.

Henry Cavill called Gina Carano 'amazing'

Although their relationship didn't stand the test of time, Henry Cavill fell hard for Gina Carano. In a 2013 interview with Details magazine, Cavill gushed over the former professional athlete and said he thinks "she's amazing" (via The Los Angeles Times). He revealed the couple wasn't big on going out, and they preferred to be near their Manhattan Beach home. "I'm not much of a schmoozer ... not much of an event-goer. I'd rather stay close to here. This doesn't feel like L.A. It doesn't feel like work," he told the outlet.

It appears the feelings were mutual, as a source told Us Weekly in June 2013 that "Gina is a complete firecracker," but "she's finally found someone who can handle her." The insider told the outlet the exes had incredible chemistry and revealed Carano thought "they [had] a good thing going." Sadly, their relationship eventually came to an end, but it seems like the former couple ended on a good note. According to Cavill's Instagram page, he kept the pair's dog, Kal, and raised him as a single father. Letting your ex keep the dog is quite the loving sacrifice, no?

As for the exes' relationships as of this writing, Cavill might be with stuntman Lucy Cork, who he has reportedly dated since 2017. And it's not clear whether Carano has someone special in her life.
