PDI: "Henry Cavill looks up to real people, not comic book vigilantes"

LOS ANGELES—In this conclusion of my column on Henry Cavill, he talks openly about what attracts him to a woman, if he would shop and buy clothes for a girlfriend (the question was inspired by a humorous scene in his new film, Guy Ritchie’s “The Man from UNCLE,” which also stars Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander), his personal heroes, why values matter to him and how he got over a heartbreak with the help of… a sandwich.

For Henry, a formal acting education isn’t a guarantee of success. “You can have a guy, who trained for 15 years in all the best schools, who won’t be as good as the guy who never trained,” he pointed out. “Acting is an intangible skill in which you reach into a bag when action happens and you really hope a performance comes out. But there’s no guarantee that it’s actually going to happen.”

There’s an amusing shopping scene in “The Man from UNCLE” where Henry and Armie’s manly characters choose the clothes and shoes for Alicia’s Gaby Teller, an East Berliner garage mechanic who suddenly finds herself a couture-draped woman on a mission with these two agents who’d really rather kill each other.
