British actor Henry Cavill has reportedly split from fiance Ellen Whitaker.

The couple mutually decided to end their engagement, according to Us Weekly.

A rep for Henry Cavill did not immediately respond to ABCNews.com’s request for comment.

“There was no fallout. They just both agreed it wasn’t working,” the magazine said, quoting a source. “They broke up three months ago.”

Cavill, 29, is best known for his role as Charles Brandon on Showtime’s “The Tudors.” He will play Clark Kent-Superman in the 2013 Superman reboot, “Man of Steel.”

Cavill is also in the running to play the lead in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie.

After Cavill proposed to Whitaker, 26, a British champion show jumper, she told the Belfast Telegraph in May 2011, “I couldn’t believe it when he asked me to marry him. I thought we were there to celebrate his birthday. It was such a surprise and I am so happy.”
