Actor Henry Cavill has said he’s tired of ‘disrespectful’ female fans hitting on him in front of his girlfriend. The Superman star has been dating 19-year-old college student Tara King since late 2014 and says there’s a "double standard" when it comes to women hitting on men.

“I’ve heard some things in my time, I’d best not say what,” Cavill told the Sunday Times. "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. There’s a bit of a double standard, you know. If a girl shouts ‘Oi, love, fancy a shag?’ 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,” he added. Last month, the 32-year-old actor opened up to Elle magazine about the age-gap between him and King.

“People say, 'age is just a number.' A lot of times it's not just a number. It's actually a real and true sign of someone's maturity," he said. "But in this case, she's fantastic.”

Cavill added that when he met King he was the one who was intimidated. “When I met my girlfriend, I was super intimidated,” he said. “I wanted to impress her. I was thinking, Don't mess this up, man."
