Henry Cavill on Childhood Bullying: Kids Called Me 'Fat Cavill, I Was a Prime Target'

Henry Cavill shows off his sultry stare on the cover of DuJour‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 32-year-old Batman v Superman star had to share with the mag:

On being overweight as a child: “They used to call me Fat Cavill… I was a prime target…I thought, ‘Oh, [acting is] something I’m good at,’ and we all like to do things we’re good at…Of course, my mum is going to say I’m the best ever, but as soon as someone who doesn’t have that bias says it, then you go, ‘Ah, hold on a second.’”

On the public’s opinion on him: “I don’t feel the need to prove myself. If you’re worried about that then you’re worried about the wrong things. I never put that kind of pressure on myself. I’m quite happy doing what I’m doing.”

On being named Sexiest Man of the Year in Britain: “You’ve got to be worried about this sh*t getting to your head. It’s enormously flattering, but I’m not going to throw all my eggs in that basket…When I’m not working and people haven’t seen me in ages, they’ll say, ‘You’re so lazy, you don’t do anything!’ I think the ability to look like Superman but never having to work for it would be good.”
