The Man of Steel star and The Big Bang Theory beauty – who were spotted holding hands outside a Los Angeles supermarket earlier this month – have decided to go their separate ways after a few dates but are trying to remain friends, a source has confirmed to E!.
The news comes shortly after the 30-year-old hunk was said to be ‘totally hot for’ the 27-year-old blonde actress, and the pair had been spotted out together in LA on several occasions. A source explained: “They are totally hot for each other. He’s excited to be dating her!”
Kaley also dropped a huge hint that the pair had started dating by posting a picture of herself looking at a poster for Man of Steel – which stars Henry as Superman – and adding the accompanying message: “It’s fantastic in every way.”
Henry split from actress Gina Carano earlier this year following a 10-month relationship, while Kaley briefly dated Pepper bassist Bret Bollinger after ending her engagement to Josh Resnik in March 2012. Kaley also previously dated her Big Bang Theory co-star and on/off on-screen boyfriend Johnny Galecki for two years, but the pair managed to keep their relationship a secret for the duration.
