201 of 261: Henry Cavill, the leading actor in the new 'Superman' film reboot who also stars in the Showtime series 'The Tudors' and Ellen Whitaker, a showjumping rider, became engaged on May 3, 2011, two days before the actor's 28th birthday.

The two met at the 2009 Olympia International Horse Show and had been dating for a little over a year before Cavill called Whitaker's father to ask his permission before proposing to his girlfriend in a Hollywood hotel.
