Declared as the “World’s Sexiest Man,” Henry started dating English equestrian rider Ellen Whitaker in 2009. Two years later, they became engaged. However, after a year of engagement, they split up. Henry is currently dating 19-year-old, Tara King (2016), which has drawn much criticism from the general public.

In 2001, Henry started his acting career by having a role in the motion picture “Laguna.” One year later, he had a role in the 2002 film adaptation of “The Count of Monte Cristo.” For several years, Henry landed minor parts in various movies and television series, such as “The Inspector Lynley Mysteries,” “Goodbye, Mr. Chips,” “Red Riding Hood,” “Tristan & Isolde” and “Stardust.”
Henry got his big break in the 2007 Showtime TV series “The Tudors,” in which he played a leading role as Charles Brandon, 1st Duke of Suffolk. Due to critical acclaim and commercial success, Henry started to climb the ladder in Hollywood.
In one year, Henry had the opportunity to portray two iconic motion picture characters: Superman and James Bond.
There were reports that he had been selected for the part of Superman in 2004, until the director, McG, exited the production and was taken over by Bryan Singer, who selected Brandon Routh. In 2005, Henry was one of two final choices for the role of James Bond in “Casino Royale.” Unfortunately for him, the producers wanted an older Bond so they opted for Daniel Craig.
Also, there were calls from moviegoers and Hollywood personalities to have him play a part in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” and “Twilight.”
For the next few years, Henry had been given an array of parts in films like “Blood Creek,” “Whatever Works,” “Immortals” and “The Cold Light of Day.” He also became the face of Dunhill fragrances.
It was early 2011 when Henry was confirmed to play the role of Clark Kent and Superman in the Zack Snyder directed and Christopher Nolan produced blockbuster “Man of Steel.” The film was a smash hit. Henry reprised his role in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and will star in the upcoming Justice League movies.
Once Daniel Craig stops portraying James Bond, Henry wants to take over the role (2015).
Aside from focusing much of his attention on Hollywood, Henry is also the spokesperson for the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. He is also the ambassador for The Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund. In 2014, he commenced the running phase of the Royal Marines 1664 Challenge.
