Henry Cavill Gets Candid in Motivating Message About Girlfriend Lucy Cork

Henry Cavill is opening up in a candid message dedicated to his girlfriend Lucy Cork.

The 34-year-old actor took to his Instagram to share the touching messages about learning from your mistakes, being hurt in the past and moving forward to be successful.

“We’ve all been hurt, we’ve all got it wrong, trusted the wrong person, made the wrong bet, turned the wrong way, made THAT mistake. What we’ve experienced is important, it defines us. But what is more important, and often forgotten, is that we decide how it defines us. The experience, decision or moment itself does not. Others will almost always try and define you by past transgressions more quickly than your past successes,” Henry wrote.

He continued, “I’ve made mistakes, I’ve been someone I’m not proud of plenty of times. I’ve fallen down. I’ve loved the wrong person. I’ve failed. I’ve been hurt. I’ve hurt. That’s life! In life we are going to get it wrong….a lot. What I’ve tried to do and still try to do each time though is recognize those mistakes and mold them to my advantage. Make them a way to better myself. We’ve all had a bad experience thanks to someone else. Don’t let that bad experience decide how and who you are. Don’t let it hold you back from love or success or giving something a go. Don’t vent your pain onto or at others in an attempt to bring them down and hold them back and cry your fury to the world. Don’t let it turn you into the monster that hurt you.”

“Use that experience! Run with it. Take the sum of your past and make it your tool to approach the future with. Move forward and love the experiences you have, use them to define you and make you the best version of yourself that is humanely possible. Your life is yours and will be whatever you want it to be. Love, grow, pursue, strive, challenge yourself. Be afraid so that you can be brave.”

He concluded by adding a video training with Lucy, saying that she is what “positive forward motion, determination, bravery, strong will, dedication and self respect looks like.”

Henry added, “She is one of the best stunt women in the world. She has defined herself. She continues to define herself. She grows, everyday. She is Lucy Cork because she says so.”

    Always trying to justify himself about his weird girlfriend. He did the same with Tara in a long article speaking about how she was perfect.. blablabla..

  • Penny Dreadful

    It’s a great message and I’m all for motivation. But the line “She’s Lucy Cork because she says so” is stupid. She’s not “Lucy Cork” because she says so – she’s Lucy Cork because her parents named her that. We are not our names. We are people.

  • Penny Dreadful

    I’m Stil trying to figure out why/how his motivational message is dedicated to her.

    Well he’s stuck with someone who has resting bitch face 24/7

    He is always trying SO HARD to convience us that the lady he is with every time is the one and only for him blah blah blah….Are you trying to convience us Mr. Cavill or your self about that? I am always suspicious of people that try to advertise their “happiness”.

  • Safiyah

    I didn’t know being a nasty bully who pole dances was what a self respecting person is but okπŸ™„. Also Henry is undoubtedly one of the dumbest males in the industry. I guess all those women he screwed over not too long before this one didn’t deserve respect. He wants to sit there and pull the “we’re all fallible humans” card but yet still can’t acknowledge his mistakes literally happened weeks if not days before he decided to get with Lucy. So many girls to name some we know and don’t know he doesn’t respect women like sure but respect is completely different he uses them til it doesn’t suit him no more and then tries this kind of stuff to make it seem ok. Henry…take some seats.

  • Casey C

    or uses them until his team tells him how bad its playing out in the press and then its byebye

  • samech

    I feel like, after Gina he went downhill…not saying I liked her, but he seemed the happiest. I hope Henry finds what he’s looking for, but, I don’t think it’s with this one…

  • Jessy

    So I read it again and again and again, I’m like “oh really Henry you need all of this speech to say you are in love… please you’ve got a weird taste of women… tara and now lucy… why do you need to write this? I will write it again: you are trying to justify something. You are saying that your act is right, your choice is good… why? Oh and the video is so unuseful… And I think she can speak herself. She looks strong enough to say it alone!”

  • Jul

    So basically Henry Cavill is saying he dated wrong people and he knows he is dating the wrong person now? Weird…

  • Jul

    We are actions, our own actions and he is trying to justify his crap actions (and hers)

  • Taylor

    Henry is a complete lie. He claims to be the protector of animals but dating an animal killer!!!! A guy who claims to be a good boy but spends his days drinking and smoking. The most ridiculous is his PR (Dany Garcia) prevent the press from disclosing that Lucy was a stripper in nightclubs. Most ridiculous is your PR promoting your girlfriend’s career. You have to be very stupid to believe that.

  • Taylor

    Henry has a huge ego because of Superman. But it will not last long. We want a great actor to play Superman, not a hypocritical guy with no character like him.

    Hey, the guy met a girl on MI6 and they are having fun and dating. So what if she’s a former(?) exotic dancer/pole dancer (SO was Lady Gaga it seems)? Lucy was in the video by Nero entitled “Guilt” dancing. Here’s a bit about the video from wiki “The video for the song was first posted on YouTube on 25 March 2011. It was directed by Christian Larson. It features an exotic dancer, Lucy Cork, entertaining business-like clients in a futuristic club called Guilt to the beat of the song. ” Up to him to date whoever he wants till he finds the right one (if that is what he wants to do). Remember, you have to kiss a lot of toads to find your “Princess’ ;)

    I agree he did say that Tara was so fantastic and then he drops her. I think he needs help.
