The actors first met at a Hollywood party in June. “He was nervous,” an insider said of Cavill, 30. “He’s always wanted to date her.” After his 10-month relationship with actress Gina Carano fizzled in May, the sexy Brit decided to ask Cuoco if she was single. His timing was impeccable, as Cuoco had also recently come out of a relationship with musician Bret Bollinger.
