Henry Cavill & Kaley Cuoco Prove Their Love: Why Are They Trying So Hard?

By Agent Bedhead | Pajiba Love | July 5, 2013 | Comments ()


Hope you all had a safe and happy Fourth of July yesterday. After all those fireworks and random cocktails, some of you may be shocked to learn that you wouldn't pass the citizenship test. (Mental Floss)

Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks are remaking The Grapes of Wrath with "the creative process" and director position still technically up for grabs. This had better not turn into a Baz Luhrman musical. (Film Drunk)

One company (out of several) has decided that they are not going to dump Paula Deen ... basically because they can't. (Warming Glow)

James Franco wants to cast Jon Hamm, Danny McBride, and his brother Dave in a Franco-centric production of The Sound and the Fury. No comment. (Film School Rejects)

Johnny Depp's hats are even more ubiquitous than his love of scarves. Commence the hat gallery! (Vulture)


Katy Perry and John Mayer wore matching douchey outfits last night to watch the fireworks. (Us Weekly)

This letter from a bridezilla to two of her wedding guests is reprehensible. How dare a bride chew her invited guests out for only giving $50 apiece as a gift when she chose to hold a $200 per plate reception? (HuffPo)

Ellen Page is keeping the torch alive in Hollywood for feminism's sake. No thanks to Beyonce and Katy Perry. (Celebitchy)

Haute couture is generally a ridiculous looking display of fashion, but looking like a broccoli sprout really takes the cake. (Go Fug Yourself)

Dustin introduced this story -- about Henry Cavill inexplicably tossing Gina Carano over for Kaley Cuoco -- in passing a few days ago. Now Henry and Kaley are getting papped together, and they're trying wayyy too hard. Two carts of groceries at once, and they only started dating? Really. (DListed)


First world problems are always amusing unless when one's talking about Mercury. (Buzzfeed)

Some masochistic idiot ran through Death Valley while wearing a Darth Vader outfit. *Haaaa ... purrrrr* Man, runners really are crazy. (The Mary Sue)

These twitpics prove one thing -- green bell peppers are more terrifying than anyone ever realized. (Kotaku)

Hey, the Japanese poster for The Wolverine makes it look like an interesting movie. (Slashfilm)

Gotye + "Game of Thrones" = a parody video that I probably shouldn't be posting here.

26 Ways Team America Isn't a Patriotic Movie, It's the Most Patriotic Movie | The Way Way Back Review: Summer Reruns

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • D

    Henry Cavill is so good looking that he's actually boring to look at.

  • BlackRabbit

    Ned Stark dies? DAMMIT, SPOILERS! Smart, funny spoilers, to whom I am uncomfortably attracted even though you have a beard, but still!

    And maybe Gina didn't like the way he "changed in a phonebooth", if you know what I mean. Leer, leer.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Johnny Depp’s hats are even more ubiquitous than his love of scarves.

    You say that, but he's wearing a scarf around his arm...

  • John W

    I got 7/10. Yay I can stay.

  • BlackRabbit

    You missed the Invisible Real Amurrican Questions. Scores are up to 20. Pay no attention to the unmarked van outside.

  • cgthegeek

    I was rooting for you, Henry! We were all rooting for you!

  • annie

    The try-hardness from both of them feels so out of character for both. It's almost as if I don't know these people at all... oh, wait.

    I'm possibly most annoyed by that married couple's grammar. "Mike's and I wedding"? Why in the past two years or so have we started overcorrecting our usage of pronouns? And this is the second story this year I've read of someone insisting their wedding gift be at least the same value as their plate at the reception. What? This is a thing now?

  • Dave Dorris

    Hey, I like Gina Carano. She's hot, she's tough. But, I dunno, maybe she's a bitch?

    Not saying she is, but aside from the genetically-superior babies she would produce with Cavill, maybe Kaley's just a nicer person?

    (This is in no way intended to cast aspersions on Wonder Woman. I mean She-Hulk. Sorry, I mean Gina Carano. She may be a terrific person. I just don't know, and neither does anyone else posting here.)

  • Sara_Tonin00

    She doesn't even have to be a bitch for the relationship to end.

    Or, crazytalk here - maybe she even ended it?

  • rd

    Gotye + “Game of Thrones” parody = Genius

    Go Team Agent Bedhead

  • emmalita

    I see we're all ignoring the Franco project. Probably for the best. *moves on the thinking about Darth Vader in Death Valley*

  • BWeaves

    a. Those bell peppers are terrifying.

    b. She really looks like Arya.

  • BlackRabbit

    And the blonde looks amazingly like Emma Caulfield. Not that it's a bad thing....

  • kushiro -

    Possibly relevant for a couple of reasons:


  • Also, I thought Cavill just needed a few vials of steroids and HGH, but maybe he's doing it old school and just packing away the protein.

  • Well, Beyonce fancies herself a role model of a sort yet shills for 'Big Sugar' for her $X millions, so yeah, fuck her. Katy Perry? There is no evidence she has a brain or is human. There's really no need to draw distinctions. Having said all that, E-Page seems to be adorably empowered and self-possessed. Let's put her in charge.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Hey, watch yourself! Big Sugar is awesome...oh, you mean the corporate conglomerate, not the rockin' Canadian blues/reggae band fronted by Gordie Johnson.

  • BigBlueKY

    WOW. That bridezilla is one ungrateful and narcissistic A-hole. I can't imagine ever being insulted by someone giving me $$, whether it be $1 or $100 and regardless of the occasion or situation. Needless to say, I'm sure that's the last time she'll ever have to see or speak to that bitch and that is priceless.

  • dizzylucy

    I know - I loved some of the responses people came up though, especially the guest listing all the costs just to attend the wedding and sending the bride a bill.

  • BWeaves

    It never occurred to me when I got married that my guests would be "reimbursing me." I thought you had the wedding you could afford.

    Nobody really gives a damn or remembers your wedding, anyway. You're better off saving your money, having some nice professional photos taken of the two of you, and buying a new house.

  • apsutter

    Seriously, the only people who give two shits about weddings are the bride & groom and their families. To pretty much everyone else they are a boring ass hassle.

  • ,

    Not the wedding I just went to. Didn't know anybody but the groom's parents. It was a blast.

  • emmalita

    The very best wedding I have ever attended was a communal effort. The bride and groom had just been through a terrible health-related experience and were tapped out financially. Family and friends gifted the couple with the wedding and the honeymoon. The bride and groom had been, and continue to be, among the most generous and gracious people of my acquaintance. That said, I barely remember the weddings in which I was a passive observer.

  • $27019454

    Her outfit in that header picture...seriously? You wear this with a brand-new boyfriend? It's Mega-Fug. You don't wear that shit till like Year Two and he's taking you to the doctor or some mundane shit like that.

    THAT outfit i a new relationship? Oh, honey.

    (saucer of milk for one, please!)

  • That is not an outfit that anyone with taste wears anywhere. Also, if you're being stalked by paps at the grocery store, you should start buying totally weird shit, the combinations of which will cause outrageous rumors about both your eating habits and what else you might be doing with it. Because that is a gift that keeps you atop the tabloids/gossip pages for weeks. This whole "look, we are totes normal and buying groceries which we are loading into the modern equivalent of a minivan" is what makes them seem like posers and not a couple who actually feels comfortable in their relationship.

    Or maybe they were shopping for a big family shindig and didn't give a rat's ass who was taking their picture. Still doesn't excuse that outfit, though.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    buying weird stuff, eh?
    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/uqfxmWbe..." frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>

    (and timely!)

  • Mrs. Julien

    She gets to touch Henry Cavill's pulchritudinous magnificence. If she is allowed to wear that while doing so, I say Brava! It is very LA, eh?

  • $27019454

    I guess this is reason 764 why I am not considered a fashion icon: To me, it's fug and dowdy. But it floats his boat -- and his pulchritudinous magnificence. So yeah. Brava!

  • Mrs. Julien

    Oh, I may dress like a Vatican II nun, but even I can see that outfit is totes hiddy.

  • NoPantsMcLane

    The girl from The Big Bang Theory is dating Superman? I smell a conspiracy...

  • googergieger

    "The Grapes of Wrath"

    Thats what I call it when I teabag a bitch.

    *two snaps in a circle*

  • googergieger

    Fuck ya'll, that shit was hilarious.

  • Becks

    I don't understand why so many on Pajiba are mean-girling Kaley Cuoco just because she's dating someone who used to date a Pajiba darling. Admittedly, I've never seen her in anything but she always seems very nice on late night shows and she's clearly attractive so I wouldn't say she's a step down in that area either.

    This is some Team Aniston/Team Jolie bullshit except Cuoco was never a mistress and Carano was never a wife so people have even less reason to be judgy.

  • ,

    Kaley Cuoco, that's not a real name, is it? That's something Bud Grace made up for a comic strip, like Quacko the Duck, isn't it? It refuse to believe anyone goes by "Cuoco." It just looks wrong.

    Imogen Poots, OTOH ...

  • Sara_Tonin00

    people are just really upset Superman and [imagined] Wonder Woman broke up.

  • annie

    I could be wrong, but my general impression is how badly both of them seem to be playing the PR game. It's so awkward. We did love ourselves some Gina, though. Maybe I'm wrong since I don't delve too deeply into comments.

  • apsutter

    The whole thing seems super fake and staged. Especially due to the speed in which they're rolling out this new relationship. Then again I never bought that Henry and Gina were a real couple. They had absolutely no chemistry and mostly looked disinterested in pictures. So it's totally possible that he and Gina were a pr match up(she does want to be Wonder Woman after all) and he moved onto someone more his type.

  • Becks

    Yes, that is one thing people are talking about and I see absolutely nothing wrong with speculating on that. I don't know much about the genesis of the relationship so it very well could be a stunt.

    There is almost nothing negative about Cuoco in this comments section and I was more referencing the last time it was brought up and even the mention of the relationship in Pajiba Love this time which seemed to be echoing some of the previous comments. It doesn't bother me at all to see a shitty person criticized and I love the snarky tone of most Pajiba critiques. I just didn't understand why everyone was talking about Cuoco like she was a downgrade or like dating her would be completely inexplicable. I didn't feel she'd done anything to deserve the ire.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Oh, it's probably also trickle-down from the snobbishness the Pajiba overlords have towards Big Bang Theory.

  • emmalita

    I was reacting to the "try hard" part, not the Kaley Cuoco part. I have no opinion about her. When someone moves on so quickly and so publicly, it makes me think there's some ego mending going on, or some other subtext. But I think you are right, and now I will slink off and try to be a better person.

  • koko temur

    If you do, dont you get your pajiba membership cancelled?
    Seriously, don't. You are right. This looks terribly fake and needless. If you cant get the exposure you feel you need after starring in the second biggest movie of the year, either get a better PR team or a better therapist. You are superman, have some self respect.

  • emmalita

    Yes, the sudden onset of domesticity seems....fishy. I reserve the right to mock someone I don't know for thrusting the relationship I know nothing about so firmly in my face. No, I don't think Becks comment was directed at me specifically. But when I read Becks comment, and then at what I had written, I realized that it did look like I was targeting Kaley Cuoco for the wrong reasons. I will gleefully mock her for being the one who apparently started the press parade through her twitter account. I won't mock her for being the next woman Henry Cavill dates, because that's the kind of woman-on-woman violence I abhor. I have been called out a couple of times recently because I've not thought through what I was actually trying to communicate, so my words were misconstrued. As Raylen would say, "You meet an a**hole in the morning, you've met an a**hole. You meet a**holes all day, maybe you are the a**hole." In other words, maybe I'm the a**hole, and I need to think about what I'm saying before I hit the post button. I believe I recently gave that advice to Alec Baldwin from afar.

    Also, please don't take my pajiba card.

  • Becks

    Oh, don't worry emmalita, I think we were commenting on two separate issues. They could very well be a fake couple and I am in no way offended by the discussion of that issue. I definitely was aiming my comments only at the people who were directing a lot of misplaced anger her way and really mostly because it seemed out of place for a Pajiba comments section.

    You know plenty about the circumstances of their relationship that I don't and although the prospect of them being fake seems crazy to me I wouldn't put anything past the terrifying Hollywood PR machine.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I think "terrifying Hollywood PR machine" is the answer to ALL of this. Not that the relationships are fake, just the attention suddenly being given to them.

  • Becks

    Haha, don't worry, you're still a lovely person. I just didn't understand why everyone seemed to have hostility toward her. It was actually the last time this story was posted where I believe someone commented about this being a big step down and I have never really known Pajiba to be so nasty about a woman for seemingly no good reason.

    Maybe this was one of those cases where we thought Carano and Cavill were still very much together but in fact they'd been separated for a while. The positive take away is that Carano is possibly single and ready to mingle. We'll always have our imagined fantasies of Cavill and Carano having sex.

  • Hey, I don't really care any more beyond Gina Carano is single again.

    Although I think a little bit of the ire is because they were probably the only Hollywood couple Pajibans actually WANTED to see a leaked sex tape from.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig.

    It bore repeating.

  • Yes. Yes, it did.

  • emmalita

    And up voting again

  • Mrs. Julien

    Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Mrs. J. I know you live in the greater NY metropolitan area. Are you aware of this?: http://www.playbill.com/news/a...

  • Mrs. Julien

    Ooooh, THANK YOU!

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    My fantasies about Carano having sex really do not require Henry Cavill.

    I mean, he's welcome to join, I suppose, I'm willing to try anything once. But really not a requisite.

  • TheOtherGreg

    Also, what's wrong with buying groceries?

  • Captain D

    Well, we have no idea if they stuck to the perimeter of the store. We also don't know if they bought food grown by local farmers.

  • Batesian

    True dat. Heck, they could've simply been picking up a bunch of stuff for an Independence Day party.

  • Blake

    Didn't they already try a G.o.W remake with Tom Hanks like 20 years ago?

  • Some Guy

    Nope, I think you're thinking of Forrest Gump.

  • emmalita

    I think Gina Carano must have thrown Henry Cavill over and thrown him hard. That's the only reasonable explanation.

  • Harriet J. Hernandez

    just as Paul said I didn't even know that some people can profit $7424 in one month on the internet. did you see this web site w­w­w.C­a­n9­9.c­o­m

  • Mrs. Julien

    Cavill needs to slap his PR people for instructing him to be so public about this. There is a major Movie Star Offensive taking place as they try to capitalize on Man of Steel before the inevitable backlash.

    Cavill also "needs" to come to my house and answer to the name of an as yet determined historical romance novel hero for an indeterminate period of time while I address some of my impulses without benefit of stays.

    (I'll probably go with Simon Basset. Maybe Griffin York. Maybe both. We'll see.)

  • emmalita

    That was probably the problem with the relationship. Carano got tired of Cavill insisting she call him Griffin (or Simon), and wanted him to pick up his wet towels from the floor. And then she stepped into the bedroom and onto a damp towel that one last time, She flung him down on the ground, over the shoulder of course, and yelled, "we don't have servants! Find someone else with whom to play 'bodice ripper'!" He went off, looking for you I'm sure, but ran into Cuoco instead, who seduced him with a sultry, "Hello, Griffin (or Simon)."

    Guys, Carano's looking for a replacement, too. But you had best pick your damn towels up off the floor.

  • Don't tell anyone, but I'm in her back yard! She's so going to kick my ass.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Normally, one would be required to provide extra remuneration for that.

  • Bert_McGurt

    She'd probably appreciate me picking up my jaw from the floor first.

  • emmalita

    That's a threshold issue. You don't get in the door if your tongue is making puddles.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I'm leaning very strongly towards Griffin owing to that scene in the library. You should edit your comment accordingly.

  • emmalita


  • Mrs. Julien

    Oooh, or maybe JONATHON REDMOND!

    I've run out of options for sure now. I have checked The (Shameful) Tally twice. You think I'm joking?


  • emmalita

    Oh, I have read your shameful tally. :)

  • Mrs. Julien

    True story: I downloaded The Scarlet Letter and The House of the Seven Gables last night, but I am actually reading a book called Once a Duchess.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    My towels never even touch the floor. Clearly I have a chance*.

    *To be said in that goofy ass way Jim Carrey said, "So you're telling me there's a chance!" in Dumb and Dumber.

  • Maybe he hit his head when he fell. He's concussed and thinks he's dating the Doublemint Twins.
