Although Henry Cavill has temporarily swapped his super-suit for sharp 1960s tailoring, that hasn't stopped the Man of Steel from dishing the dirt on what it's like playing one of the most coveted roles in cinema history. And one word sums it up nicely: sex.
While on a promotional tour for his latest movie, The Man from UNCLE, in an interview with British publication The Guardian, Cavill compared nailing Superman's complexity to sleeping with someone for the first time.
“It’s like shagging someone for the first time. Sometimes it turns out to be amazing. Mostly you’re trying to get each other’s rhythm going. It’s on the next go that you start to expand.”
Expand, huh? Interesting choice of word.
And that was not the only steamy parallel he treated us to. Proving to be quite the randy little so-and-so, Henry went into the pressures of keeping the Superman vibes alive offscreen as much as on. As - now try to hide your surprise - when you've got a bit of cash, you're damn fine, and you're famous, a few girls try to sleep with you.
"There’s a blessing in being Superman. You get more attention. But there’s also a curse, which is that you’d better fucking look like Superman any time you need to get your kit off.
If you were to meet a bird out in a bar and bring her home, she’s expecting Superman. This is not Superman and she’s going to be mega-disappointed."
Somehow, Cavill, we can't see that being an issue...
