Henry Cavill () are the proud owners of a Big Bear Akita.
It was so great working with Henry and getting to meet him as well as Gina was truly a treat,” breeder Big Bear Akitas shared about the 30-year-old actor and the 31-year-old actress.
I think the feeling I have for Superman would be the same as the American version of me would have for Superman. When I was a young lad I was into Superman, I was into Iron Man, I was into the X-Men. To be honest—I’m really not too sure if there is now. Since I got the role of Superman, I’ve been more into the character and delving into the DC universe. I think it’s just fun, and it’s everything it should be in a comic book. It’s the kind of thing kids read and want to grow up trying to emulate, and that’s what it should be. I think if someone went after them, then that would change every single core characteristic of mine.
My playing the character, as a Brit, doesn’t make a difference because when it comes to the whole acting thing, ultimately, it’s an alien who flies around and stuff. I wouldn’t become weak, but I don’t think I’d be very good, if you know what I mean.
Though Henry Cavill has found worldly fame through a character who is, very literally, out of this world—of course, he’s best known as the last son of Krypton in director Zack Snyder’s 2013 franchise reboot, , and its follow-up, this year’s megahit Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice—he works pretty damn hard to keep his real-life self firmly grounded here on Earth.
In fact, the 33-year-old English superstar has shunned the trappings of a full-time Hollywood lifestyle for a quieter, more friends-and-family-centric life in London.
Things seem to be getting serious with Tara though as she joined Henry and his mother Marianne at this week's London premiere of Batman V Superman, which sees the actor reprise his role as the Man of Steel.
Henry was spotted departing on a flight out of LAX on January 16th, and Marisa was NOT with him.
Considering that she’s accompanied him everywhere recently – including a yacht vacation with his close friends – it’s interesting to note that she’s been missing from her voracious social media postings recently.
“If I ever become an egomaniac, then I’ve messed it up," he says.
Here, Cavill shares more about keeping his head screwed on straight while supersizing his muscles, how he’d prefer roles more in the vein of Bond than Bale, and why no one should ever dare to push around his pooch.
Cavill takes interest in martial arts and knows several types of combat techniques including shooting, archery and fencing. In 2011, the actor was engaged to Ellen Whitaker, an English equestrian.
