Henry Cavill for The Hollywood Reporter

written by Jasper XI.XI

The year is coming to a close and we still got blessed with a gorgeous new photoshoot! Henry spoke with The Hollywood Reporter and talked about a lot of things, including the new season of The Witcher, Highlander, his future on Superman and Mission Impossible, and taking on the mantle of James Bond.

Henry Cavill stands in a Miami hotel room looking like a comic book drawing made real.

He’s 6-foot-2 but seems taller because he’s so broad. His muscles stretch an ordinary camel-colored knit shirt into a bulky superhero outfit. “I’m amazed how many people recognize me with a mask on,” the actor says, and it’s unclear if he’s being modest or truly doesn’t know how cinematic he looks — even his wavy jet-black hair with its jagged widow’s peak would give him away (you may recognize this hairline from films such as Mission Impossible: Fallout).

Yet as we sit down for the first of our two interviews, Cavill’s brawn is quickly contrasted by his genteel demeanor that his colleagues say is typical of the 38-year-old Englishman. Take the way the Witcher actor typically starts his days on set: Cavill will select a crewmember, say hello, shake their hand and ask how their day is going. Then he’ll approach another crewmember and do the same — then another and another and …

“It’s to the point where sometimes our ADs are like, ‘OK, we have a huge crew, you can’t ask everyone,’ ” says The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich.

Explains Cavill: “A set is often rush-rush-rush, and we forget the basic human decencies. I want people to know I respect everything they do and they’re just doing a job like I am. To me, it’s just respect and good manners.”

It’s a characteristically nonchalant answer from somebody whose approach to his work is anything but casual. From Cavill’s recent selection of roles to his work ethic to his social media engagement, his strategic deliberation reflects the hard-core gamer that he is.

He’s played Superman in a trio of DC films (which have grossed more than $2 billion), launched The Witcher franchise (Netflix’s most watched original series until Bridgerton came along) and had a scene-stealing turn in 2018’s Mission Impossible: Fallout (which brought in $800 million worldwide as the highest-grossing film in the franchise). All of this has positioned Cavill as arguably the biggest action hero in the world who isn’t a household name — yet.

Zack Snyder calls Cavill “a warrior monk.” Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie sees Cavill a bit differently: In a town full of celebrities, “Henry is a classic movie star.”

“It’s not like there was something in the water in the 1930s and ’40s that there isn’t today,” McQuarrie says. “Movie stars are not as abundant now for two simple reasons: The industry wanted and cultivated stars, and there were people ready to do the work required to be stars. Henry is in the category of somebody hell-bent on doing the work, and that work is hard.”

Cavill is certainly working more than ever, set to star in John Wick director Chad Stahelski’s reboot of the action-fantasy Highlander, reprise his role as Sherlock Holmes in the Netflix sequel movie Enola Holmes 2, and head the all-star cast of Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn’s spy thriller Argylle. And Dec. 17, The Witcher returns for season two (with Cavill having just signed a new deal paying more than $1 million per episode, sources say). There’s also never-ending speculation that Cavill might be in line to play the most highly coveted character in action cinema — James Bond.

For his part, Cavill acts vaguely perplexed by all this. “Something has changed, something has shifted,” he says of his busy coming slate. “After 21 years of hard work, I have three jobs lined up. Maybe it’s me, maybe it’s my approach, maybe my value as a commodity increases being attached to things like The Witcher. Now I can really focus on the storytelling and grow from here.”

Henry Cavill for People Magazine

written by Jasper X.VIII

Henry spoke with People Magazine and shared his mental health philosophy, his diet, and more. Also featured are three outtakes from a shoot that he did for MuscleTech. Check them out in our gallery!

Henry Cavill has never been afraid of a challenge.

The British actor, known for his ripped physique in Man of Steel, spends hours training for his physically demanding roles. But the 38-year-old says he didn’t discover his love for the gym until later in life. “When I was in school I played sports,” he tells PEOPLE. “I wasn’t the most spectacular physical specimen back then, but I definitely had drive.”

That drive helped him land his first major physical role in Immortals. “I was doing a lot of martial arts and bodyweight exercises because it was apt for the character,” he says. “And the first time I really moved into lifting weights properly was for Man of Steel.

From there, says Cavill, his fitness journey took shape. “It’s evolved and developed in its own way depending on the characters that I’ve played or what I’ve had access to — the facilities, where I’ve wanted to go with my body and what I’ve wanted to do.”

These days, he says, he likes to maintain a baseline level of fitness that can be adjusted depending on his work. “I will do a lot of body building work for an aesthetic look for a project or a role,” he says, adding that he focuses on different body parts on different days.

Cavill’s fitness came to a halt in December after injuring his hamstring while working on The Witcher. While some people suffer a mental blow when injured, the Justice League star chose not to see it as a setback.

“When I look back, I realize, yes, it was a hard time,” he says. “I think one of the skills I’ve picked up over the years is just forging ahead regardless of difficulty or hard work or trials and tribulations. So when the hamstring injury came, I tried to look at the silver lining. It was like, ‘Ok. I was working insane hours and it was exhausting and I now physically can’t work because I’m on crutches.’ So I was focusing more on taking the time off and going, how can I best heal myself?”

He explains further. “When it comes to my mental health, [I] focus on what I can control and work on that. And that gives me something to work towards rather than something to deal with or work through or manage my life through.”

With the injury now behind him and no immediate roles coming up, Cavill is working on sprinting. “I want to build a better engine,” says Cavill, who has partnered with MuscleTech supplement company. “One of the things my physical therapy for my hamstring showed me was that I have a lot of capacity in my engine but I have not accessed it. And it’s something which I really want to build upon.”

Henry Cavill to Star in ‘The Rosie Project’

written by Jasper XV.VII

Did someone say Henry Cavill in a rom-com? Well, you’re winning. Henry has signed on to star in the romantic-comedy, The Rosie Project! Filming is not expected to start until early 2022, due to the Enola Holmes sequel and Argylle lined up to shoot this year.

DEADLINE – Even after signing on to a Highlander reboot and Matthew Vaughn’s next spy action pic, Henry Cavill doesn’t look like he’s done setting up his future dance card as Deadline has confirmed that he is set to star in The Rosie Project.

Steve Falk will write and direct the film, which follows an unlucky-in-love university professor who creates an elaborate questionnaire in an effort to find a wife and meets an unconventional woman who doesn’t match any of his “requirements,” but might be the perfect woman for him.

Matt Tolmach and Michael Costigan will produce.
