Henry Cavill Talks About Heartbreak And How A Sandwich Helped Him Move On

Henry Cavill talks about heartbreak

Henry Cavill. What can we say about this man that you are not going to like? Apparently at one point he was so heartbroken that he wasn’t eating and a sandwich — now known as “the Henry sandwich” helped him to move on.

We don’t know which relationship he’s talking about in this insightful interview brought to us by Inquirer. As far as we know Henry has had two serious relationships in recent years.

He was engaged to equestrian star, Ellen Whitaker — whom he broke-up from as his career was taking off — and dated WWE fighter and actress Gina Carano on and off for a while. But Henry Cavill says the toughest thing he’s ever had to do is walk away from someone he loves — yes, he uses the present tense, so we assume he still does.

“I think the bravest thing that I have done is that I have told someone, ‘I don’t think we should be together in a relationship.’ In spite of the fact that I love her, I think it was wrong and knowing how much it (telling her) was going to hurt her. Because that really sucks and it really hurts.”

“Months later, I looked back and went ‘yeah, you did the right thing.’ That was good.”

His comments paint Henry Cavill as a man with strong principles, who was brought up to act on his conscience and it couldn’t be more attractive to his adoring fans. The man is already adored by millions and as his career takes him to the next level of stardom, he still says his biggest influences are those people closer to him and not comic book heroes.

“Ethics are very important. I try to be as ethical as I possibly can. Integrity is vital to me and who and what I am is based upon that. I know there is only one thing I can take with me when I am on my deathbed and that’s my integrity. I can’t take my money. I can’t take houses or boats or my wife or my kids.”

Henry Cavill has been extremely busy filming, first the blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice — which opens on March 25, 2016 — and the spy revival — The Man From U.N.C.L.E. — coming to theaters on August 14. He also graces the covers of several magazines including, Empire Magazine, Men’s Health, and Men’s Fitness.

But it appears Henry is not letting fame get to his head, which is not easy considering the position in which he currently finds himself. After all he is the Man of Steel.

So how did Henry Cavill deal with that heartbreak, which he calls the toughest moment in his life? Well, he says it was hard, but he was able to move on — it appears he really isn’t over it — with a little help from his friends…and a sandwich.

“My hardest time—goodness—isn’t heartbreak always the hardest time no matter what you do?. So yeah, I had my heart broken and had my best friends look after me after a bad heartbreak. I wasn’t being particularly bad. I was just being morose and heartbroken.”

“To see the joy on my friends’ faces when I finally ate a sandwich, which was remarkable because I wasn’t eating. My friend’s wife made this particular sandwich which I ate. Just to see them so happy taught me a lot. They now call it the Henry Sandwich.”

So what was so remarkable about that particular sandwich. Nothing really. Henry Cavill says it had “slow-cooked pork with banana peppers in a soft roll. That simple.” This is great stuff, isn’t it?

New ‘Batman V Superman’ Photos And Plot Details Released [Spoilers]

Batman v Superman photos

Today has been a good day for Batman v Superman fans with the release of new photos and more details about the secretive plot.

The amazing photos come courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. The spread — included in its latest issue coming out Friday — shows never before images of the main characters.

The new Batman v Superman photos show Ben Affleck in his role of Bruce Wayne and Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman, dancing at a fancy party. This is maybe part of the footage shot at that big filming day at the University of Michigan last summer.

We also got a new image of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Henry Cavill as Superman, and Ben Affleck in his Batsuit.

All of these images are great, but perhaps the best of them is the one that gives fans a taste of what will happen when Batman and Superman face-off for the first time in Batman v Superman.

Check out the cover that will come to newsstands all over the country when EW is released Friday and it promises behind-the-scenes Batman v Superman details we haven’t heard before.

In the interviews included with the special issue, director Zack Snyder talks about Kryptonite and confirms that indeed it will make an appearance as part of the Batman v Superman plot. Batman will use it to confront and try to destroy a Superman the world now sees as a threat.

Snyder said he thought of introducing the popular weapon at the end of Man of Steel, but obviously that didn’t happen. Additionally, both Affleck and Cavill talk about their roles in Batman v Superman.

“He’s on the verge of being swallowed up by the anger and the rage that we see haunt this character in the other manifestations of it,” says Affleck, who plays a much older version of Batman. “But this guy is further down the line and has become more embittered and cynical.”

For his part, Henry Cavill explains how the tables have changed for his Superman in Batman v Superman, according to Comic Book Movie.

“I like to think that Man of Steel was the perspective of the world from Clark, Kal-El, looking at the world and trying to exist with in it. Batman v Superman is definitely more mankind’s perspective of Superman.”

Henry Cavill Speaks About Superman in ‘Batman v Superman’

Henry Cavill Superman

If you are wondering why Henry Cavill’s Superman doesn’t just squash Ben Affleck’s Batman in Batman v Superman, period, you’re not alone. This is a burning question fans have not been able to get the answer to until today.

The lovely Henry Cavill was at the London Collections: Men in London this past weekend, checking all the latest fashions. During the event, he took some questions from the press regarding this very topic.

We have all seen the amazing Batsuit and Batmobile Ben Affleck will use in Batman v Superman and they are impressive, even more so than those Christian Bale wore for The Dark Knight Trilogy. Bigger and better seems to be the theme with the latest superhero movies and Zack Snyder is making sure his characters will leave a lasting impression.

But how on Earth will Batman avoid being killed by one swipe of Superman’s hand? How fierce will their rivalry really be?

Earlier this year, Henry Cavill touched on the subject very briefly, when JoBlo asked the question?

“Well, if Superman is Superman, which he is, he wouldn’t,” Cavill said at the time. “And therein lies your answer.”

Reading between the lines, it’s quite simple really. Even though Superman has more than enough power to obliterate Batman, he will not because it’s not in his nature. He is a pacifist and we all saw how much it took for Superman to finally get rid of General Zod in that epic, controversial battle.

Even though it would be easy for Superman to really hurt Batman and possibly kill him, the Kryptonite is not a violent person whatsoever. On the contrary, Superman avoids conflict and walks away rather than getting in a fight.

This past weekend Henry Cavill expanded on this topic and got us a little inside his Superman’s motivations in Batman v Superman.

“Superman wouldn’t get into a cage fight with just anyone. Imagine, you wouldn’t get into a fight with someone if they hit you and you didn’t feel it, barely registered it. Superman wouldn’t even notice; he’s not quick to engage.”

As we impatiently await more promo material to dissect, as well as cast interviews to give us more details about what we can expect when Batman v Superman finally arrives in theaters, we thank Henry Cavill for throwing us a much needed bone concerning his character.

Henry Cavill Movies: New Images Of Actor Training For ‘Stratton’ Revealed

Henry Cavill movies

Henry Cavill’s movies will be coming fast and furious within the next few years. A couple of images of the British actor in military garb, getting ready to start filming Stratton have been revealed.

Cavill has been training hard — what’s new? — for his new role as a Special Boat Service commando in the British military forces. The film is based on Duncan Falconer’s novels, which are a telling of his experiences during his time of service in the Royal Marines. His brother Nik, is a Royal Marine.

Despite being in incredibly good shape thanks to playing the Man of Steel, Henry has had to continue his brutal training and learn additional skills such as shooting a rifle and jumping from a plane. Henry Cavill always seems to do these tasks with good humor and understanding that it comes with the roles he undertakes.

Stratton also marks his debut as a producer. Henry and brother, Charlie Cavill formed Promethean Productions and this will be their first project. Cavill is also personally involved with the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund, which supports military veterans.

Falconer himself has praised Henry Cavill and his work ethics, after meeting the star and taking him shooting. On May 5, the author posted this on his Facebook page.

“Stratton update: I took Henry pistol shooting last week. We went to a secret location in England where the SAS and SBS occasionally drop by to brush up on their speed skills. Henry’s an excellent shot for such a short period of training. His instructor is one of the best in the business. We put down a lot of rounds and used the famous Red Dot sight used by UK and US SF and, incidentally, patented by Henry’s instructor. So when you see the movie, pay particular attention to the way he holds the pistol and fires and you might notice the subtle but critical difference between a professional and someone pretending to be!”
