Henry Cavill is the Top Man

Henry Cavill is the Top Man

British bloke Henry Cavill models a TopMan jacket in VMAN magazine’s summer 2009 issue, on stands May 14.

The chiseled 26-year-old Tudors star contemplated joining the military during his string of bad luck, which included narrowly missing being cast as Superman. Then Batman. Then James Bond. He even missed Twilight, despite the endorsement of author Stephenie Meyer.

“I was almost to the point of giving up,” Henry recalls.

As for his pretty mug as the international face of Dunhill? “I do get asked to read the good-looking bloke quite a lot,” Henry admits. “I’m not…unaware of that aspect of myself. But it’s just one aspect, and I don’t feel I’ve been pigeonholed.”

    YAY!
    I absolutley love him on The Tudors!
    I was wondering why I don’t see more of him. He’s adorable :)

  • Tootie

    BTW I do not like the curly hair at all. He lloks so much better with short hair!

    but still adorable

  • meh

    HAWT!!! Even though I like him better with shorter hair. Thanks for the post! More Henry!

  • Kajal

    I’m not feeling this picture but he’s definitely hot! He definitely would have been perfect for any of those roles. It’s so sad that he missed out on them because he was either too young or too old. I hope they start up the Superman project again and he can do it. He’s such a good actor and he’s also smart and seems sweet. I’m totally hooked!

  • Lady Lilith

    Definitely not gay. According to a guy who worked at the same LA restaurant as Henry a few years ago, Henry was a manwhore who f**ked around quite a bit, sleeping with all the waitresses etc.

    Don’t know if this rumour is true but that’s what the guy said.

  • bubblegum

    i love him, i love him, i love him, i love him, i love him, i love him.
    i need to see the movies hes been in, because so far ive only seen the tudors and i love him love him love him there.
    he needs to be superman, james bond and batman.
    not edward cullen, because cullen is too gay/metrosexual to be portrayed by such a macho man as henry cavill.

    @Lady Lilith:
    If that’s true that actually makes me like him a little less. Whoring around is never good, not for men or women. Just makes him seem a bit dirty. :(

  • Mrs cavill wannabe!

    Henry is gorgeous,intelligent, classy, charming and (last but not least!) a very good actor!! he’s been unlucky lately, but I truly believe that everything is going to change for him! BREAK A LEG HENRY!!!
    thanks JJ! I love the man!
    P.S. is he still living in London?? I’m his age, and since he dates women…! :-) I could cook italian for him…the real italian…!..and welcome him in Florence, where I live!!

    I have said it before and I’ll say it again….”This guy is stunnigly beautiful” He also seems to be quite unassuming. For the record, I heard him say that he didn’t even audition for the part as Edward Cullen.

    He is so beautiful! LOVE.

    I would have watched Twilight if it was Henry Cavill, instead, it’s Rob Pattington or whatever his last name was that I can’t stand, but then, Rob does look more like a vampire. Henry Cavill, on the other hand, sexy hot human flesh.

  • Ivyzheng

    HE is soooooo hot. I love him. He is made to play God

  • Lady Di

    He just doesn’t fit the “man whore” personna…As Charles in the first season, Yes But,as himself, No.
    …….Plus ,he didn’t wait tables in LA…..he bartended in New Jersey for a brief stunt whe he was like 19/20…The interview is on utube….

  • FR

    @Lady Di:

    It wasnt in New Jersey it was Jersey itself, the island just between UK and France – where he was born.
