HENRY Cavill revealed he's "very happy in love" with his girlfriend Natalie Viscuso – but demanded fans "stop" the online hate".

The Witcher star, 38, asked his fans to stop speculating as he dismissed "even your most conservative of negative assumptions" about his life as untrue.

Henry shared a picture on his Instagram outside of his home, wearing a flat cap with a red jacket.

He's cuddling up to girlfriend Natalie, 38, who is also wearing a hat with gold rimmed glasses.

He captioned the pic: "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.

"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.

"We are living in an age of social enlightenment. More and more, people are realising 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."

Henry went Instagram official with Natalie in April after being pictured holding hands with her the week before.

Cavill looked the picture of happiness as he made a rare appearance with his now not-so-mystery woman.

Dressed in all black she clutched the hand of her actor boyfriend, opting for ripped jeans and a military-style jacket.

She paired her look with dark sunglasses and an over-the-shoulder bag, while Cavill wore jeans, a jacket, and a grey beanie.

The couple were out walking Henry's dog Kal-El as they gazed romantically at each other and exchanged plenty of loved-up looks.

He later posted a picture of the couple playing chess where he gazed over at her while she looked intently at the board.

"This is me looking quietly confident shortly before my beautiful and brilliant love Natalie, destroys me at chess," he wrote.

Viscuso is the vice president of Television and Digital Studios at Legendary Entertainment, according to her LinkedIn profile.

Legendary was involved in the production of Man of Steel (2013) and Enola Holmes (2020), which both featured Cavill.
