    Henry Cavill Said He’s "Very Happy In Love And In Life" Despite Recent Criticism Of His New Relationship

    "It's time to stop...I am very happy in love."

    Last month, Henry Cavill went Insta-official with his girlfriend, Natalie Viscuso.

    Now, a little over a month later, Henry is addressing the hate and criticism he and his girlfriend have received in a lengthy Instagram post.

    "Dear fans and followers, I wanted to make a wee community announcement. I couldn't help but notice that there has been some social animosity of late," Henry said.

    "It's becoming increasingly prevalent on my feed. There has been lots of, let's call it speculation for now, about my private life and professional partnerships."

    "Now, while I do appreciate the passion and support by those very people who are 'speculating,' it has come to such a point that I needed to say something, which in itself, is a bad thing," he continued.

    "We are living in an age of social enlightenment. More and more, people are realizing that their views may have been blinkered and that they need to expand them to encompass others. So, to you out there who are expressing your disdain and showing your displeasure through a surprising variety of ways, it's time to stop."

    "I know it can be fun to speculate, to gossip, and to dive into our own personal echo chambers on the internet, but your 'passion' is misplaced, and it causes harm to the people I care about most. Even your most conservative of negative assumptions about both my personal and professional life just aren't true."

    "Let's embrace this age of social enlightenment together, and move forward with positivity. I am very happy in love and in life. I'd be enormously grateful if you were happy with me. If you can't bring yourself to be happy with me, then at the very least try to do yourself proud and be the best version of yourself."

    I went through Henry's Instagram, and it doesn't seem like he addresses hate often, so this must be really important to him.

    Key takeaway: Everyone! Should! Be! Nicer! On! The! Internet!
