Henry Cavill

Ideally you do want people to treat you professionally in return, but not everyone necessarily does that. This acting job - it pays very well and you get to live a wonderful lifestyle, but it's something that I love doing, so I want to work with other people who enjoy it as well ... Maybe if I met the Queen I'd be nervous, though I'd probably be more nervous about doing things the right way because it's a very formal occasion.

Henry Cavill

If there is some sort of trouble at home, kids don't think that James Bond is going to come save their mum from their dad, or their dad from their mum. They don't think, "Bond is going to come and save me." Superman is a different sort of idealized figure.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Henry Cavill

Certainly, for younger guys, Superman is this mythological character that they've thought about and explored in their imaginations... But one thing I really like about Superman fans is that they're so open-minded and excited and honest. There's something beautiful about their enjoyment of it - something very Superman-like.

Henry Cavill

People say, "Age is just a number." A lot of times it's not just a number. It's actually a real and true sign of someone's maturity. But in this case, she's fantastic.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Henry Cavill

To play Bond, though, and then for the world to perceive you in a certain way, is very different from playing Superman. Bond is not this ideal figure.

Henry Cavill

Why can men no longer be best friends? This is so stupid. Today if you show two guys being best friends they end up giving out an image that they’re gay. But guys don’t always need to be drinking beer, fighting in pubs or pulling women by the hair. They may have a deep affection.

Henry Cavill

I still don't have any crushes on actresses or models. It's always been one of those things with girlfriends. They say, "Who's on your list?" What do you call it, the Get Out of Jail Free card?

My fame? Truly I don't consider myself famous...long way to go yet. But if anyone does ask for an autograph it's a wonderful feeling.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Henry Cavill

I read mostly historical fiction - lots of stuff set in ancient Rome and ancient Greece. I also liked sci-fi and fantasy: David Gemmell, Raymond E. Feist. It's a nice escape from the world. As much as I do love real-life stories, they can often make you hurt in a way I'd rather not hurt.

My mother is such an incredibly strong woman. She raised a family of five boys extremely well. She made us all strong, loving, caring people. We all support each other. I'm really thankful to her.

Henry Cavill

Playing an icon [superman], you don't try to be an icon because that defeats the purpose. The responsibility attached is enormous, and the realization that it actually really, really matters meant that I wanted to put the most amount of work into representing the character properly.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Henry Cavill

A large amount of constant activity will get things going. For example, training in the morning will have everything, all the juices flowing by the time you actually get to work. So, when you're at work, you've been already up for an hour or so or two hours, and you're raring to go where everyone else is still wiping sleep out of their eyes.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Henry Cavill

If you have superpowers and no one can actually cause you any physical harm, then everything has to be very thought-through. You almost have to fake at being human.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Henry Cavill

I'd rather feel empathy for a character that's fictional, so it doesn't quite tie into personal experience as much.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Henry Cavill

People have this belief that actors are able to go out there and say, 'Oh I choose this job,' but most of the time we're just taking the job we can get. We don't just get offered thousands of jobs; we might earn one job a year and that's the one we'll take because we've got to pay the rent.

Henry Cavill

I hate to say "found himself" - it sounds so ridiculous.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Henry Cavill

I often find during a day of shooting I will speak in an American accent all day long when I'm doing dialogue. At the end of the day, it often takes an effort when I'm talking to my fiancee to bring my English back just because you're so used to speaking that way.

Henry Cavill

With Superman, there are certain limitations for an actor. You can't go past certain boundaries because then you cease to be what the character is.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Henry Cavill

If I'm talking to someone and they're feeling a certain way, I will definitely tie into that very quickly. You have to learn to read emotions and feelings when you grow up in a family with four brothers - especially if three of them are a lot bigger than you.

Henry Cavill

I'm training two-and-a-half hours a day, pushing my body beyond its normal limits, putting on a lot of muscle mass and just making myself look like Superman.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Henry Cavill

It's our job as actors to make it look like it's not manufactured. If you have two actors who understand their characters - and therefore what they are trying to portray - then all they need to do is be the characters and there's a chemistry there.

Henry Cavill

I work out two, two and a half hours a day.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Henry Cavill

I remember going, "I'm really excited about this - I really want it to happen. It would be a wonderful opportunity." But if something doesn't happen, then it doesn't happen. My mother and father sort of raised me to look at things that way.

Henry Cavill

By Anonym 13 Sep

Henry Cavill

A lot of the stuff you do as an actor - or I do, because I can't speak for everyone - is not always consciously thought out. A lot of the time, for me, it's actually just feeling stuff, and it happens all in the moment and your body reacts.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Henry Cavill

I like to go full bore into something. If you have a backup plan, then you've already admitted defeat.

Henry Cavill

Not every job is a good job.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Henry Cavill

If there's one thing that we're very good at as humans, it's remembering the bad stuff. For some reason, it's always the pain that gets you.

Henry Cavill

Regrets are something you can't really have as an actor, because ultimately you'll end up destroying yourself there's a lot of disappointment in this business.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Henry Cavill

I found very interesting - trying to separate the different facets of Superman in that way. When you're aware of how people perceive you, you can't always remain true to yourself, and that was an interesting thing for me to apply to the character as well - exploring these different facets of his personality while having certain bits of it stripped away. The arrogance of a person who would have the kind of power that Superman does - we see that in The Return of Superman. Superman is not that character, but since he has all of those powers, he has that capacity for arrogance.

Henry Cavill

I suppose that when I'm building a character, it's usually related to what their family is like and who their parents are, as well as how I grew up - that nurture side.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Henry Cavill

There are these fantasies among people who watch movies where they're like, "Oh, there's a chemistry between them - something going on." And sometimes there is. But for me, it's more like, I go to work, I do a job, I play a role, and then I go home. I don't wear a cape at home. I'm not an invulnerable alien at home.

I'm a giant softy, for sure, but I honestly think these days it's probably considered more masculine to be emotionally connected.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Henry Cavill

I prefer more of the modern stuff - just because I can associate with the imagery more.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Henry Cavill

Whether someone else would have played Superman better or worse would be up for a lot of debate on the internet forums, I'm sure.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Henry Cavill

Getting the role like this is such awonderful opportunity... I remember looking in the mirror and going 'I'm superman'.

As much as I do love real-life stories they can often make you hurt in a way I'd rather not hurt. . . . For some reason, it's always the pain that gets you.
