"People say age is just a number. It's actually real and true sign of someone's maturity," he says. "But in this case, she's fantastic."

While he's completely comfortable in the relationship, Cavill admits that he understands the "natural reaction" to the couple's age difference, adding that he’s dated older women before: "When I was 19, I was going out with a 32-year-old."

Asked what his former 32-year-old flame taught him, Cavill said coyly: "Things I can't mention in this article."
