Henry Cavill Talks About Fame's Effect on His Relationships

Henry Cavill is opening up about how fame and having devoted fans has affected his relationships.

The 34-year-old Justice League actor, who is currently dating stuntwoman Lucy Cork, told The Rake that he loves his fan-base, but he doesn’t appreciate when they claim ownership over his life.

“There is obviously a flip-side to [fame], too: as soon as I get into a relationship, a slew of hate, directed at me as well as the girl, saying that ‘I’ve changed,’” Henry said. “I haven’t changed a bit. But you have to take all of that in your stride, there are positive and negative parts to all of it, but ultimately it is enormously flattering to have people care that much. As long as it doesn’t hurt anyone in my life, it is a good thing. As soon as it starts to affect people in my life, that’s when I draw back.”

“I don’t want bad things to happen to people in my life because of a sense of ownership that people [think they] have over my life and me,” Henry added. “It is not worth it to me. I love my job, I love making money, I love to travel and play with all the great toys in the world, and see what I want to see, but none of that will be worth it if the people I love and who I want to walk that journey with are getting hurt and suffering because of that gain.”

Make sure to see the new photos of Henry and his dog Kal posing for the mag!

    Very handsome. Good for him. They look happy.

    Henry has not changed. The people who are seeing who he really is. The problem is not him dating a stripper, the problem is he doesn’t want people to know the truth. That he’s an idiot, drunk and a bad person. Even your charity campaigns are fake. Who knows it behind the cameras knows that. He is hypocritical and his career goes to the hole.

  • Taylor

    His PR Dany Garcia is behind everything he writes in the instagram and behind this interview. What’s the problem with him being gay? He thinks his lie goes where?
    If he were really famous, surely his rotten ones would already be exposed. There is a press campaign led by Dany Garcia to keep him clean. But it will not last. I’m sure.

  • Taylor

    Henry is so ridiculous that I feel bad for him. Why one celebrity stops for papparazzis to taking pictures?
    This was arranged by his PR Dany Garcia. You have to be very stupid to believe in you Henry. Idiot!

  • samech

    I heard he drinks like a fish, but, who am I to say. Haven’t met him, yet, so, I can’t attest for him being a bad person. However, I have to get this mag- just for the pics!

  • pitta

    Get off the internet. Henry is not checking for you !LMAO!

  • pitta

    Beautiful couple. Wish them all the best!! Go Henny!

  • Taylor

    Obsessed and sick fans who do not leave the internet to see his movies. Your idol is falling. He can’t even be in a credible magazine! Sad to be a loser’s fan! Or would it be Dany Garcia’s team? LMAO!

  • Celebrity News Today

    Gee whiz, it must be tougher than ever to be Superhomotabulous!! Get to the back of the bus, Captain ThtooperGay!!

  • Juliette

    Henry, poor decisions is not about being famous… People is not responsible of your choices. Mistake after mistake is your responsibility. Don’t listen to people who is always telling you that you are doing great… listen to people who tells you “Hey, be careful” At least for once, don’t think you are superman…

  • Charmander411

    My gawd, why all the vitriol in the comments? I’m not sure what Henry Cavill you’re observing, but the one I see comes off as likable, with good manners, and is accommodating and considerate to his fans. I imagine being the recipient of angry accusations is also part of downside of fame he spoke of in the article, and most of the commentary here is backing up what he said. Luckily, Henry seems to have an abundant of goodwill with his fans, but I think the subjects of money and nice things are better left unsaid in interviews. Anyway, love how down-to-earth he is and so looking forward to seeing him in The Justice League. This man was born to play the role of Superman.

  • pitta

    Youre the one thats obsessed with him. Im happy for him and HIS GIRLFRIEND! Get your own d*ck! LOL

  • Juliette

    I didn’t know why he had bad feedbacks. I think he is a good actor but need some improvements… not my type because he is too old for me lol but I was reading about him. Well, what I read and I understood why people criticize him, he has a charity about animals but at the same time he dated a girl who hunts and mocked about a deer and it’s blood in her face. Then he dated a teenager and said she protected him and she told their love story to her friend in her magazine… (wow) and now, he is dating a pole dancer/stunt and wrote a letter saying his past is a mistake… (thanks God I didn’t date him lol) And what I am reading in his last interview, ‘fame brings him problems’ As you wrote, I think he is a good guy but those are poor decisions lol Well, maybe one day he will grow up… Handsome guy… Actors and their crazy life… @_@

  • sema islam

    he says always the same things , he starts defending…then he dumped them.

  • HG

    Why are they smiling and posing for the paparazzi? lol I don’t really know anything about them, but that just seems so strange.

  • DEADP00L

    Waaah, I don’t have crippling student debt, I make millions of dollars playing pretend for a living, practically idol worshiped by people for doing it, can go wherever I want whenever I want, afford more than one house, great health insurance, guaranteed contracts and am financially set for life – my life sucks.

    *takes a deep breath* …. There is not one person in Justice League that isn’t a POS apparently.

  • maryjrhodes

    Mr cavill I’ve long ago given up on your or anybody else path in this life or the next. You sir are full of BS, you put this shit out there and expect not to hear the truth. People have their opinions and voice them openly, you make the worst choices in so called love interests, and expect the fans to jump on board. Keep it to yourself if its serious until the deal is done, Or go straight to hell with your pole dancing stripper. We don’t have to like her. She’s a gold digger, and everyone but you can see that. People don’t want their super heroes real or imagined to be weak wuzzies, so easily swayed by the first piece that comes along, get a grip and seek some help for what ever ails you.

  • MintChocChipLass

    This guy always comes off as such a moron. Going to a posh boarding school doesn’t make you intelligent. Everything Dany Garcia does is transparent as hell. Nobody buys this guy’s girlfriends. These photos were set up for Justice League promo (He took another ex-bf to Rome for paparazzi pics as well) – he always gets a girlfriend roughly 6 months before a film release, then forgets they exist afterwards. He cuts this girl out of all his IG posts, except for the free promo one that was probably in the dating contract.
    As for his arrogant asshole remarks about loving money and luxury – has that self-important manager Dany Garcia not told him that nobody wants to hear that? It just makes him look like an asshole with no filter.

  • Bella

    Fame what fame? he was/is in three Dc films ,second film he barely had two lines to read, the third one he barely shows in it .. which tells you something? ..how long his so called”fame” will last and yet he is whining about the effects of it.. boo hoo!!

  • Charmander411

    Ummm, I think some people here are making Cavill’s case about the perceived ownership of him and how it affects the people he cares about. Frankly, some sound like jilted lovers who are obsessed with him and feel compelled to criticize everything he does. If you’re critical of him, why seek out articles on him in the first place? I think most fans recognize he’s one of the few genuinely considerate celebrities who enjoys engaging with fans, and don’t fault him for expressing opinions on the downside of his fame. Who would know that better than him? He seems like a decent human being, if he’s not your cup of tea, move on. I would recommend anyone who reads Henry’s articles, skip the comments section.

  • TheFaceofthe_E

    Exactly. I mean this chick got 50-11 comments up here. She gotta be one of them ones he was referring to.

  • TheFaceofthe_E

    Girl, you come up here writing a essay about why he’s hated, talking about you don’t know why. Who you kidding?

    Your justification for why Henry is hated is as weak as over processed hair.

    To imply that his charity is bs, because he dated a chick that torments deer and post pictures of it is weak. Alot of people associate with people that they do not agree with, in terms of ideologies and lifestyles; yet there are other things that attracts one to another, such as familiarity, comfortability and all that other crap. One must all take the bad with the good. He’s certainly not the first, last or only person making this compromise in terms of the company he keeps.

    That teenager ain’t ran off to tell their story to some no-name tabloid without his permission. I bet she ain’t even reveal nothing juicy, outside of who she is and that she dates him.

    Fame is bringing him problems because you sure wouldn’t be giving a dang about his so-called “poor decisions” if he weren’t famous.

  • pitta

    I know right, lol She probably stalks his IG and leave a ton of comments!

  • pitta

    I know right…people here talking how much they hate henry and then are writing essays. Pathetic!!!

  • pitta

    If you hate Henry Cavill and then come to his threads writing essays you’re the pathetic one.

  • calafeast

    He should not be too proud to be a brit, since b/c of his generation’s ineffectiveness, ineptitude and weak character, moslems are set to fully invade and destroy that pathetic island as we know it.
    Try to cover it up as much as you want, lunatic leftist media, but everyone knows about London acid attacks, Newcastle, Manchester etc.

  • calafeast

    What the fuck is he supposed to do, beat and rape them like your disgusting religion allows men to do? Fucking retard…

  • calafeast

    B/c once you give them a good eye contact photo, they mostly leave you alone. They want a personal reaction. Once they receive it, they mostly leave soon after.

  • calafeast

    What you wrote made no fcking sense. What is a ‘poor decision’? Defending his women?
    Maybe your idea of a good celeb making right decisions is Chris Brown, Bill Cosby, Kevin Hart and Harvey the hog. This guy never raped or beat any of his GFs. He seems like a gentleman unless you’re a gay male.
    Why isn’t that enough?

  • calafeast

    If I were him, I would be dismissive toward these so called ‘fans’. They do nothing for him. They do not support his projects do not make him make more money. they are only enamored by his face which they see on the internet anyway. They make next to no contribution to his career, charities or bank account.
    He makes his money b/c nerds want to see Superman. Nerds who mostly do not want to fuck him. These fans are retarded and repulsive and indefensible.

  • calafeast

    B/c they are fucking losers and this is why society in general does not respect young women. They are fucking lunatics in regards to men they find handsome, hence husband material.
    In reality, this guy does not even know these lunatics even exist and they would not have been interested in him if he did not look the way he did.

  • calafeast

    So?
    That is her job. That is what a manager for an entertainer does. Are you fucking retarded, or were you born yesterday?

  • calafeast

    Yes, because he is the only person who loves money and luxury. Look at every trashy black celeb and the way they live w/o even having 1/10th of the money or fame this guy has. Who doesn’t love money? What do you think he should work for? Peanuts and your fucking meaningless approval? Who the fuck are you to him? Why should he care?
    You’re a fucking retard.

    Good for him for being so handsome and being able to capitalize on it. He doesn’t claim to be curing cancer with his acting.

  • calafeast

    It doesn’t seem like he is complaining.
    It seems he wants people to know he is a man, not a castrated sack-less un-man. Wanna see complaining celebs? Look at every kardashian, every single trashy black celeb including the likes of oprah, every single hollywood bimbo actress, fat celebs, old celebs, colored celebs, far leftist celebs…
    This guy is like a lamb next to those morons.

  • calafeast

    What happened Taylor?
    He did not fuck you the right way in your embarrassing wet dream last night? So bitter about a guy who would not even care if you died a miserable death tomorrow… why? B/C HE DOESN’T EVEN KNOW YOU!
    Fucking retard.

  • calafeast

    Famous enough for you to pay attention. Trash.

  • DEADP00L

    Craptrashians and Oprah are the worst. Entitlement it strong in them.

  • Thanasis Vlachakis

    Where is all of this baseless shit coming from.

  • Thanasis Vlachakis

    Famous enough to be in two fucking movies that have made 1.5 billion dollars you pathetic cunt.

  • Thanasis Vlachakis

    What the fuck are you fucking talking about you pathetic useless waste of air. He is a grown ass man and he can fuck whatever the fuck he feels like. As long as it’s a consenting and legal relationship it’s perfectly acceptable. He’s not going to ask a no life pile of shit like yourself for your opinion or your fucking approval. Get a grip you gigantic cunt. He doesn’t have to ask anyone of you lonely shitheads for you opinions.

  • Thanasis Vlachakis

    Oh shut the fuck up. You gigantic racist, moronic pile of horse shit. No one gives a fuck. Move on.

  • calafeast

    Am I supposed to be offended by that, you dickhead? If you do not give a fuck about 11 year olds getting raped by dozens of brown shit in the corners of kebab shop in the middle of england, then why do you reply?
    Cunt…

  • maryjrhodes

    thanasis vlachakis you are so funny! Obviously you have issues, its not that serious. So fuck off you moron.

  • Thanasis Vlachakis

    Obviously serious enough for a cunt like yourself to write a whole fucking essay about shit you have idea about. Fuck off. You are cancerous and pathetic. You’re useless and that’s all you’ll ever be.
