Last Friday, Henry Cavill’s 19-year-old British college student girlfriend Tara King caused thousands of aspiring celebrity girlfriends to leap out of their seats and give her a round of applause when she was seen arriving at LAX with him two days before the Oscars. Usually it takes a while for a celebrity girlfriend to achieve plus-1 Oscar status, but Tara managed to do it in a mere four months. Just like that, Tara went from 19-year-old college student to 19-year-old life inspiration.
Sadly, Tara King’s reign as the Queen of the Celebrity Teen Girlfriends didn’t last long. When Henry Cavill walked the Oscars red carpet, he did it alone. And when the camera panned to Henry in the audience during the show, it appeared that he was sitting next to a bunch of adults, which can only mean one thing: poor Tara was left in the hotel room on Oscar night. “Sorry Tara, but Oscar Guest is an honor you’ve got to earn” said former celebrity girlfriend Suki Waterhouse. But because Henry Cavill isn’t a completely terrible boyfriend, he swung by the hotel, told her to throw on a dress and press on some Lee’s, and brought her to the Vanity Fair party after the Oscars.
How kind of him! At least she got to walk one red carpet. Sure, it’s technically beige, and it’s about as exclusive as a Target store, but it’s something. Plus, it gave Henry a chance to try out a couple new Handsome Boyfriend™ poses (I think the one above is called The Suave Mannequin).You know, it was really dumb of Henry not to take his teenage girlfriend to the Oscars. When the Academy finds out he had an opportunity to get a young person to watch the show and didn’t take it, they’re going to be so pissed.
Here’s Henry walking the red carpet by himself on Sunday night:
