Henry Cavill for GQ Germany

written by Jasper X.I

Henry (with his curls) is featured in next month’s issue of GQ Germany! Check out the behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot session below. The full interview is in German, but here’s an excerpt (hopefully accurately) translated in English. Also, check out scans and some outtakes in our gallery!

Mister Cavill, Last summer you made headlines with “Mission: Impossible – Fallout”, not least thanks to your mustache. Do you miss that sometimes?

The mustache had its time. Maybe it will be the day of his return, but it will take a while.

There were enthusiastic responses to the look on the internet. Or are you not following what’s written on and about you on the net?

I make an effort to read the comments below my posts. I also study fan and movie pages to see how the mood is there. I try to get a sense of how my work is perceived, at the same time I do not want to attach too much importance to online commentary.

Her career began 18 years ago. At that time, they worked in bars and nightclubs in England to afford the auditioning auditions in Los Angeles. How present are these times still in your head?

That feels very far away. But it’s not like I’ll ever forget those years. I really appreciate where I stand today and I’m still working hard. Only that the hard work has changed a bit. 

At that time, were you sure that you would succeed in the breakthrough? Or were there phases of doubt?

At the time, I was driven by a mixture of belief in myself and the sense of reality. I had forbidden myself to make too many thoughts of failure. At the same time, however, I have repeatedly questioned whether I’m really happy with acting. As a young actor, you really do not have it easy: you need a name to get the big parts, but to make a name for yourself, you need big parts … There have been many moments in which I’ve thought of that To hang up a film career and go to the military. That was my plan B.

Henry Cavill Visits ‘Good Morning America’

written by Jasper XXV.VII

Henry appeared in Good Morning America yesterday, primarily to promote Mission: Impossible – Fallout. He did discuss other things, including once again his moustache and doing stunts in the film. He also shared some inspiring points he got from an eighty-year old friend, and even taught the audience how to do the move of his swinging fists. Lucky crowd! Check out the full interview below and screencaps in our gallery.

Henry Cavill for GQ Australia

written by Jasper X.VII

We must be in heaven because we got two new photo shoots in one day! This time, it’s for GQ Australia, and the outtakes are very pretty. It reminds me of the Men’s Health shoot back in 2008. In the interview, Henry discussed his best life lessons, the #MeToo movement, the upcoming Mission: Impossible – Fallout, and more. Check out the outtakes in our gallery and a snippet of the interview below.

As I set my phone on record, it starts to feel as if I’m about to get Dorff’d. “It’s better to step away,” says Cavill when asked whether he reads his own interviews. “A lot of stuff, in the written word, sounds very different from the intention.”

Cavill is still a little reluctant to open up. When asked what a visit home to Jersey gives him, he says it acts as a chance to reflect on how he’s changed each year.

So, how has he changed this year?

“The usual things, that people change every year.”

Anything more specific?

“You start to reflect on the past and consider the future while enjoying the present.” (6. ‘Keep secrets’.)

Again, we are empathetic. Cavill is coming off a long run of work: Mission: Impossible – Fallout (the sixth instalment of the Tom Cruise-led action-film franchise in which he plays a moustachioed foil to Cruise’s eternal Ethan Hunt) – was a marathon shoot, and it’s about to enter a marathon publicity tour.

Cavill spent a year working with Tom Cruise, and says precisely what so many say about Cruise. “Tom has got this incredible energy. He’s very charming and very engaging. He will remember details of your first meeting which you don’t remember. You’re person number 600 that he met that day, but he’ll remember your dog’s name and that your brother was unwell that day.”

Suffice to say, when you’re managing a Mission: Impossible workload, and blockbuster-sized demand, you need to draw lines.

So, Henry Cavill has boundaries. He won’t pose for photos at airports because, in the event of a mob forming, he’d rather not hide in a toilet. He won’t pose for photos at the gym, either – in-between sets is ‘me’ time, and that’s fair. He won’t text at the dinner table – not unless he’s asked permission in advance. (21. ‘Don’t allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It’s there for our convenience, not the caller’s.’)

He has an extraordinarily tight circle of friends, and they’re tightly curated. He’s heard the, ‘You’ve changed’ thing before, and if you’re saying that, you already don’t get it, and you may not have really ever been friends.

His real friends? They get it. “They go, ‘Wow! He is worked to the bone. Poor guy. I wonder how we can support him.’ Rather than, ‘What’s wrong with you?’”
