Henry Cavill Talks Career Choices, Internet Criticism, Marriage and Babies, & Solo 0

Henry Cavill spoke with Playboy in a new interview.  He discussed his post Man of Steel career choices, what he thinks about internet criticism, the next life phase of marriage and babies, and of course Napoleon Solo.  Here are the highlights.

Henry shared his thoughts on varying his roles while he is the chosen one to bring the Man of Steel to life.

But I definitely chose this role to be contrary to Superman. Because when you have a movie of that size come out it’s human inclination to pigeonhole someone, to categorize and say “I now know what that person is.” You have to fight against that as an actor.

There was a lot of internet chatter about the Man of Steel being British, as well as other superheroes.  Henry had an interesting take on the situation.

It’s bemusing but people don’t think about that. It’s funny when you read the bitchy comment, then the bullshit facts, then the bullshit fact continues, then another bitchy comment. Then someone goes “Wait a second” and writes a small paragraph of sense and no one acknowledges it. The logical, sensible thing which is filled with fact is completely brushed over.

Henry also discussed his preference on full sets vs green screen.  He shared a little known fact about The Tudors.

In our mind’s eye we have to see this room and if we don’t see this room and if the room doesn’t match for each other it’s going to look disjointed and it will jar when it’s all put together in post. Green screen I can do, and sets are easier to work with because you don’t have to do that little extra thing but I wouldn’t say I’m more comfortable necessarily. The whole first season of Tudors, for example, was half green screen, half sets.

Henry talked about the next accomplishments he is looking forward to in life: marriage and babies.  Clearly this didn’t come out as planned, but you get the idea.

I mean next stage is finding a wife and getting kids but – not getting them, having kids, hopefully. Might buy them!

[Pretending he’s looking in a shop window] “Two of those ones, different colors.” That’s the next stage but I’m happy, I’m super content. But I haven’t found the right girl yet. Still looking. But, you know, it’s tough for anyone to be in a relationship with someone like me. It’s a tough lifestyle. If I want someone who’s a professional they’ve got their own shit going on.

So unless I meet someone who’s very, very young who hasn’t yet started trying a career like that, you can then go, “Okay, I’m going to travel with you and do some stuff, maybe I’ll write or whatever; I’ll entertain myself or build my own kind of travelling career.” I’m looking for someone who’s my own age and will have a career. If they haven’t then maybe I should be worried. It’s easier said than done.

Henry covers a lot more with Playboy about the confidence he has in his performances, the different types of heroism displayed by Clark Kent and Napoleon Solo, and much more!  Read the article in it’s entirety –> HERE.
