Henry Cavill: Kids Used to Call Me 'Fat Cavill'

Henry Cavill carries a purple package while waiting for a flight at the airport on Saturday (October 15) in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The 28-year-old actor, who’s been filming Man of Steel with co-star Amy Adams, recently revealed that he was known as “Fat Cavill” during his childhood in England.

“It’s definitely a sh—- nickname. But kids are kids. Kids are cruel. Whatever. I was fat,” Henry told Men’s Health.

In case you missed them, check out some new stills of Henry showing off his super fit physique in Immortals!

    Tiziano Ferro also had such problems during childhood. Everyone should look towards the future not the road behind!

    The best revenge is always being hotter and more successful than those that tortured you as a child. I would say he is the one that gets the last laugh now. He is probably going to be the next big thing in Hollywood.The next big A list actor.

    Now Im a fan of this guy but the interview in Mens Health – he doesnt sound that great. He was bullied, which is always terrible, my brother was bullied so know how this can effect ppl, but to say “even cruel kids have a point” is disgusting! Cruel kids/bullies NEVER have a point because if you are black, fat, tall, gay – whatever, it is never a “point” for bullying nor is it anyones business. Also the bit about “thats what makes you a man” BS sounds so sexist. Only men give it their all, bounce back, get back up etc maybe he has only ever known weak women in his life but women can do all that and more so say all that exclusively about men is pathetic. He certainly has gained my favour. Whatever.
