[Blind Gossip] He is the star of one of the biggest movies of the past year. She is the star of a popular television show. They are now dating. Is their relationship real?
Not quite. They are both single, good-looking, successful actors… who share the same publicist. Yes, this relationship was cooked up in a publicist’s office. (Note: PR relationships are so much easier when there is only one publicist involved!)
Their initial contract is only for just a few months. Then they will have a chance to decide whether they both want to renew. The upside is that they really don’t mind hanging out together, have become real friends, and have garnered themselves a lot of publicity. The PDA is just for the cameras at this point and they haven’t slept together yet… but one of them is hopeful that it will become something more. We think this fake dating relationship could actually become a real one!
Actor: Henry Cavill
Actress: Kaley Cuoco
Cavillco (yes, we’re naming it!) is dead. And the breakup of this fabulous couple is totally our fault. Totally.
We debated whether or not using the clue “Banging” in the title would be a smart move (Cuoco stars in The Big Bang Theory). We heard that Cuoco reads BG and might panic if we made the blind too obvious and disclosed their publicity-fueled setup.
We were right. Within an hour after we published the blind yesterday, Kaley Cuoco read it, freaked, held an emergency meeting with her publicist, and said she wanted out of the faux relationship,”Now!”
Remember how we said that “PR relationships are so much easier when there is only one publicist involved”? Well, it also makes it so much easier to terminate them! There’s no debating and finger-pointing and negotiations among multiple publicists. The contract is immediately terminated, and it’s over in less than hour.
Henry Cavill is mildly annoyed because he actually likes Cuoco and his star is on the rise and the publicist told him that Cavillco would be good for his career. He probably thought that if they ran into any problems that he could keep the relationship going with his super-human acting skills.
Cavillco is dead. Long live Cavillco!
From The Daily News:
Henry Cavill, Kaley Cuoco split less than two weeks after going public with their romance
The ‘Man of Steel’ star and the ‘Big Bang Theory’ actress have gone their separate ways after a very short-lived relationship.
Henry Cavill and Kaley Cuoco’s relationship has ended faster than a speeding bullet.
The pair, who only went public with their relationship under two weeks ago, have split according to E! Online.
The studly “Man of Steel” star and the “Big Bang Theory” actress are said to be remaining “friends after a few dates together.”
Just two days after their reported romance was outed, they were spotted hiking together and walking hand inhand grocery shopping on the eve of Fourth of July.
Even though the two were publicly flaunting their short-lived union, Cavill had just ended his 10-month relationship with actress Gina Carano in May and Cuoco’s most recent love was musician Bret Bollinger.
She was also previously engaged to addiction specialist Josh (Lazie) Resnik before splitting in March 2012 and dated her “Big Bang” co-star Johnny Galecki for two years before that.
Despite the fact that the new duo has already decided to go their separate ways, Us Weekly had reported that Cavill is “a massive ‘Big Bang Theory’ fan” and had “always wanted to date” Cuoco.
Somewhere out there, Cavill is flexing in front of a mirror, Cuoco is wandering around with one lonely cup of coffee, and William Shatner is weeping at what might have been.
Congratulations to all the Blinders who got this one right… which was all of you! Special kudos to Mardy Bum, who was first AND picked up on the “banging” clue! Go Mardy Bum!
