Henry Cavill talks ‘Man of Steel,’ being under the microscope and what he focuses on
Henry Cavill, the star of Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot Man of Steel, had never really done anything on that level of magnitude before and has spent the last several months of his life under the microscope and spoke about the experience.
In a brief, audio interview Cavill talked about the challenge of not reacting to all of the public comments and “being under the microscope.
“If I were to take everyone’s comments to heart then of course, I think it would be [difficult],” Cavill said.
“There’s very hurtful stuff out there and wonderful stuff to, so I’d be thrown between having an enormous ego and a very small, crushed one. So it’s one of those things where it’s all part of the entertainment. It’s going to happen, people are going to talk and that’s great. If people are talking, they’re being entertained in one way or another, so carry on.”
The British star of “The Tudors” says he focuses on what’s really important to him.
“It is a microscope and you’ve just got to remember that the people who are really important to you in your life–when they’re inspecting you under a microscope and finding flaws, that’s a really bad thing…but everyone else, they’re fully entitled to their opinions. They can fire away, they can troll on the Internet forums, whatever they want and good for them. As long as I’m entertaining, I’m entertaining.”
“Man of Steel” arrives in theaters June 14, 2013 with an all-star cast which includes Russell Crowe, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon and Kevin Costner.
