“Man of Steel” star Henry Cavill has been under fire from social media for his previous relationship with former “Star Wars” star Gina Carano.


Gina Carano was one of the stars of “The Mandalorian,” a “Star Wars” spinoff show for Disney+. However, she was recently let go from the show after a social media post compared attacks on Jewish people during Nazi Germany to how people today are criticized over political beliefs, as I wrote about for the Deseret News.

Did they really date?

Yes. Per The Los Angeles Times, the couple dated in 2013 around the time that “Man of Steel” came out.


Social media criticized Cavill for having dated Carano in the past. It’s not a stretch to say that social media users tried to cancel Cavil for dating Carano almost 10 years ago.
