Henry Cavill’s girlfriend Natalie Viscuso flew to the UK during Covid-19 to be with him

Henry Cavill’s new girlfriend Natalie Viscuso flew to the UK amid the Covid-19 pandemic to be with him after they previously met working in film.

The Hollywood star, 37, went Instagram official with Natalie, 31, who’s a Los Angeles based movie executive at Legendary Entertainment, this weekend, by sharing a photo of them playing chess to his 15.7million followers.  

Natalie, former star of MTV’s My Super Sweet 16, jetted from the States earlier this year to be with Henry at his rented Berkshire home where he’s been living while filming the second season of Netflix’s The Witcher.

A source close to the couple told MailOnline Henry and Natalie met years ago after ‘crossing paths’ while working in the same industry but romance finally blossomed during lockdown.

‘Henry first connected with Natalie years ago, and while a romantic connection wasn’t instant between them, they always kept in touch’ an insider explained.

‘Despite strict travel restrictions in place, Natalie flew from the States to the UK so she could be with Henry, and they were able to go unnoticed from prying eyes in Berkshire as they visited local markets together.

‘As a hugely famous actor, Henry is usually very discreet about his personal life and relationships but he’s smitten with Natalie, who’s been a party girl and aspiring model from a young age, even starring in MTV hit My Super Sweet 16.’ 

Natalie had dyed blonde hair aged 16 and was filmed for the 2005 show rejecting desperate teens without invites from being able to enter her extravagant party.

MailOnline understands Natalie’s father Michael is a former nightclub mogul, which led to her appearance on the TV series that later became a global hit.

Prior to going public with romantic walks together in Kensington, London, Natalie had a ‘spring clean’ of her Instagram profile, which gave an insight into her former life as a party girl.

MailOnline is told Natalie removed a number of older photographs before she and Henry exchanged soppy messages online this weekend that included the Hollywood actor calling his new love ‘beautiful and brilliant.’ 

Henry is famous for playing Superman in blockbusters Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, as well as having starring roles in The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Mission Impossible and most recently, The Witcher.

Meanwhile, Natalie works for TV and digital studios Legendary Entertainment, who are one of the production companies behind 2013’s Man of Steel, with some fans even alleging the pair first met on the Superman set seven years ago. 

It is believed the new couple will divide their time between London and Los Angeles when travel restrictions ease and they’re able to fly more frequently. 

MailOnline have contacted Henry Cavill’s representatives for comment.

The actor has a long list of ex-girlfriends including stunt double Lucy Cork, who he split from in 2018 after a year of dating, and Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco.

Kaley previously described how her relationship with Henry led to increased attention from photographers despite her already working in the industry for years before seeing him.

She said: ‘I had no one following me until I met Superman. I’ve been in this business for 20 years, and my whole life, I could go anywhere, do anything.

‘There had not been one paparazzi photo of me until like seven months ago. The recognition has been crazy.’

Henry also had relationships with Tara King (2015 – 2016), Marisa Gonzalo (2014 –2015) and Gina Carano (2012 – 2014).
