Did Henry Cavill's Girlfriend Marisa Gonzalo Plan Everything To Hook Up With 'Superman?'

Dec 16, 2014 10:56 AM EST | By Josh Samuel

"Man of Steel" Henry Cavill's new relationship has been the subject of scrutiny as of late. His new girlfriend 21-year old Marisa Gonzalo from Detroit has been dubbed as "animal killer" as she was known for hunting and killing wild animals as a hobby, and proudly posting it on her Facebook page.

Many fans of Cavill were very disappointed as a result because it's incomprehensible how an animal lover and animal rights activist, who even has his own organization called Cavill Conservation, will date someone who is his complete opposite.

One portion of the foundation's website even says: "If you care about extinction, love animals and think protecting the planet is important, then we have all of the above in common."

But wait, that is just one part of the story. Recent reports have been circulating that Cavill's new girl had planned every meeting with Cavill right from the start, just to hook up with the A-list celebrity, how true is this? According to Celebrity Dirty Laundry, animal hunter Gonzalo has "stalked" the Immortals actor at the gym they both went to. She may have done everything until she got noticed by the hunk actor until they got to hang out together.

Moreover, when the 2 started officially dating, Gonzalo wasted no time making sure the public finds out. Gonzalo, now being tagged as "famewhore," kept posting pictures of her and Cavill together, specifically during Thanksgiving Dinner, when Cavill spent time with her at Detroit, along with her family. Incidentally, our Man of Steel is known for being private with his romantic relationships, but it seems like he does not have anything in common with his new flame as Gonzalo always seem to strike the wrong cord, which all the more irritates Cavill's fans.

8 Times Tom Hiddleston & Benedict Cumberbatch Had the Cutest Friendship


What’s more beautiful than two supportive male best friends? Well, two really attractive male best friends who also happen to be English and extremely talented. Yup, that’s about as awesome as a best friend coupling as you can get and Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch have all of those things. Actually, I can go on and on about this lovely pair, and as a Bustle reader, I’m sure you’ve noticed we kind of have a massive crush on both of them. What’s not to love? I took it upon myself to answer this question in the best way I could, by recounting the cutest Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch friendship moments over the past four years, all while giving me complete license to gush at their cuteness unabashedly.

Since meeting on the set of the epic film War Horse in 2010, they began a friendship that spawned one of the largest and fervid fan bases of recent years. It is not an easy competition in the Internet fangirl world, but the combined charm and beauty of these two men made it look so easy. Earlier this month, Cumberbatch was name Tumblr’s “most reblogged actor of 2014” for the second year in a row, and I venture to say that his boy Hiddleston was not too far behind. There is a treasure trove of beautiful friendship moments these two have shared with the world and here are just a few to set your hearts ablaze once more.

Tom Hiddleston In 'I Saw the Light' & 9 Other Times He Totally Transformed for a Role — PHOTOS


There’s nothing better than when actors take selfies while on set so we can see them in their costumes. Thanks to I Saw the Light co-stars Josh Pais and Elliott Grey, we get to see Tom Hiddleston in his full on Hank Williams attire, 1950s suit and all. But Hiddleston is no stranger to transforming for his roles. He even once said, “I’m actually a terrible actor, I just dye my hair a lot.”

While the terrible actor part couldn’t be further from the truth, he does dye his hair a lot. He’ll be dark-haired for Loki and then switch to red for The Hollow Crown and then go back to his natural blond for Coriolanus. He basically looks different in every film he’s in, and I think that’s kind of cool — he’s never playing the same sort of role. 

Even when he’s portraying Loki repeatedly in Marvel sequels, Hiddleston brings a new look to the table each time. As an actor I think it’s imperative that you be able to completely transform for your role so you don’t end up like, say, Nicholas Cage, just playing yourself in every movie. 

Thankfully that’s not Hiddleston’s lot in life, and so here are 10 times he totally transformed for a role.

Eddie Redmayne is ending 2014 on a high note!

The 32-year-old actor, who recently earned Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations for his starring role in Focus Features' The Theory of Everything, married Hannah Bagshawe at Babington House in Somerset, England, Monday. "They celebrated with a small number of close family and friends," his rep tells E! News in a statement. The wedding came less than a year after their engagement was first announced in The Times newspaper.


Two months after Redmayne popped the question, the Les Misérables star opened up to E! News about the wedding planning process. "It's going good!" the British movie star said. "It's amazing!" Regarding his involvement, Redmayne joked, I'm sort of leaving most of it up to my fiancée, but we're getting there!"

Richard Armitage on Thorin’s Madness: The Hobbit Interview

Thorin Oakenshield- Knock knock Gif by Goldie4224

Richard Armitage brought the sexy back to Middle Earth. The star of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy plays Thorin Oakenshield, the heir to the throne of the dwarves, who is on a mission to recapture Erebor and the treasure hoarded by the dragon Smaug. It’s a character Richard Armitage has had an opportunity to expand from the novels, delving into the heroic nature of Thorin and transforming him into a more dashing figure than he was in J.R.R. Tolkien’s original book. But in this weekend’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Thorin has achieved his goals and fallen prey to the madness that stems from acquiring untold riches. (And STILL he’s charismatic!)

I talked to Richard Armitage on the phone about the differences between the novel and the motion picture trilogy, and the seemingly rapid descent into paranoia that befalls his character in the final film in the series. We also talked about the influence Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance as Smaug had on his own performance in The Battle of the Five Armies, how Tolkien’s life story impacted his portrayal of Thorin Oakenshield and his favorite scene from all of the films.

CraveOnline: I know a lot of people who never thought they would be attracted to a dwarf from a Tolkien movie until they saw you.

Richard Armitage: [Laughs.] Yeah, I still find it a bit weird to think of it in that way, but hey, I’ll take it.

You get to take a character who, in the original book, is a bit more allegorical, and you get to turn him into a heroic figure. That must have been an interesting job to do.

Yeah, in those first few chapters of the book, Tolkien really has him as a bit of a fuddy-duddy, someone who’s quite stoic and a bit boring. Then he turns on a little bit. So we took some elements of that and tried to feed into something that was going to play over three films that the audience will be able to engage with. Because really, the character is really the spine of the story and all of the villains that come up, in way, they just hang off his story. They just hang off the spine, which is the quest to Erebor. So it was important that we created something that was aspirational, you know?

Yeah, his motivation is much more about his people than about gold in this trilogy. Which is why it’s interesting to watch the third film, to see him go a little crazy. It seems to come on very quickly. That must have been a challenge.

It has been a bit of a split focus, because the thing that sets him on the road is to try and reclaim the wealth, because with wealth comes the reestablishment of his kingdom. But when he actually gets in the presence of the gold, it has this corrupting effect on him, and takes him down that path he watched his grandfather tread. It’s got a fatalistic taste to it.

What’s that like, creating a character who has all of these deep emotional connections with the supporting cast, and then all of a sudden you have to get very paranoid about it? How do you know when you’re going too far?

You know, I think in every actor there’s a certain amount of paranoia anyway. There’s just something you [latch] into. It was about making the character as inconsistent as possible. Normally when you make a film and you put a character together you try to keep them consistent, so I sort of deliberately didn’t do that. I let him have really quite extreme mood swings, and so one moment he seems very clear and lighthearted, and then the next minute he goes to a very dark place. So I wanted to him to feel a little bit schizophrenic. But it was something Peter [Jackson] has sort of chosen in the edit, so really the final shape of the character is in Peter’s hand.

So how was it different on the day? Did you try different shadings?

Yeah, we tried all kinds of extremes. We tried quite softer readings of the scene and then he’d really push you to a place that felt sometimes abstract, and what’s really interesting me is that the takes chosen are all of the extremes that we went for. There’s a version of the scene where you think it’s much too far… the moment where Thorin starts to become a dragon a little bit. I’d gone into the soundstage and watched Benedict [Cumberbatch] recording Smaug’s voice, so I made some of the sounds he was making, I did some of the movements he was making. So it was good. It was fine-tuning, which I really enjoyed.

CraveOnline: I didn’t know Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance would have been such an influence on you. Was that your idea or did Peter Jackson encourage that?

 Richard Armitage: It just happened by chance. He just happened to be down, recording. Peter actually showed up and said, “Why don’t you watch Benedict recording some of his stuff? Because in the stage direction I want you to kind of follow him.” I sort of heard his voice and saw what he was doing, and it felt like I could just let it rub off on me a little bit, just for one scene. Just a tiny shade of that, which I just thought was interesting.
