Their one photo was leaked in which both were doing their breakfast on vacations. However, as mysteriously this relationship started with the same mystery it ended.
In 2018 Henry and Tom worked together in Mission Impossible: Fallout. After release Henry complained sadly that Tom did not allow him to do the stunt “Halo Jump”.

Do you know anyone that looks like you? Well, Henry got a person that sometimes people get confused. He is also a celebrity, he is an actor and singer. He is Matt Bomer. At first, people really got confused that whether Henry is Superman or Matt. Because they both look alike.
However, Matt is 6 years older than Henry, and fans are getting used to it. So they don’t take it now with many surprises.
In the Oscar awards of 2016, Henry was eating cookies. Maybe he was hungry when Chris Evans noticed him and laughed on him.
In return, Henry gave him a little smile and again got busy eating his cookies. You can clearly see it in the photo.

As it is mentioned before that Tara was Henry’s girlfriend. Their relationship started in 2015. And due to the huge difference between their ages they were criticized by fans.
When Henry and Tara met, Tara was 19 years old. Their relationship was strong with good romance but then suddenly in 2016, they broke up.
It was Henry who ended this relationship, perhaps because of his fans but no one exactly knows what happened between them.
Henry explained that they have just broken up but they are still friends and Henry invited Tara to his birthday which Tara happily attended.
