Henry Cavill, star of Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Superman reboot, is engaged to British athlete Ellen Whitaker (who is on the British show jumping team and is currently training for the 2012 Olympics). Cavill popped the question to Whitaker during a trip to Hollywood and of the surprise, Whitaker said, “I couldn’t believe it when he asked me to marry him. I thought we were there to celebrate his birthday. It was such a surprise and I’m so happy.” Like a true gentleman, Cavill called Whitaker’s father at his home in South Yorkshire and asked for permission to marry his daughter. It seems he’s taking his newest role seriously.
