Henry Cavill for People Magazine

written by Jasper X.VIII

Henry spoke with People Magazine and shared his mental health philosophy, his diet, and more. Also featured are three outtakes from a shoot that he did for MuscleTech. Check them out in our gallery!

Henry Cavill has never been afraid of a challenge.

The British actor, known for his ripped physique in Man of Steel, spends hours training for his physically demanding roles. But the 38-year-old says he didn’t discover his love for the gym until later in life. “When I was in school I played sports,” he tells PEOPLE. “I wasn’t the most spectacular physical specimen back then, but I definitely had drive.”

That drive helped him land his first major physical role in Immortals. “I was doing a lot of martial arts and bodyweight exercises because it was apt for the character,” he says. “And the first time I really moved into lifting weights properly was for Man of Steel.

From there, says Cavill, his fitness journey took shape. “It’s evolved and developed in its own way depending on the characters that I’ve played or what I’ve had access to — the facilities, where I’ve wanted to go with my body and what I’ve wanted to do.”

These days, he says, he likes to maintain a baseline level of fitness that can be adjusted depending on his work. “I will do a lot of body building work for an aesthetic look for a project or a role,” he says, adding that he focuses on different body parts on different days.

Cavill’s fitness came to a halt in December after injuring his hamstring while working on The Witcher. While some people suffer a mental blow when injured, the Justice League star chose not to see it as a setback.

“When I look back, I realize, yes, it was a hard time,” he says. “I think one of the skills I’ve picked up over the years is just forging ahead regardless of difficulty or hard work or trials and tribulations. So when the hamstring injury came, I tried to look at the silver lining. It was like, ‘Ok. I was working insane hours and it was exhausting and I now physically can’t work because I’m on crutches.’ So I was focusing more on taking the time off and going, how can I best heal myself?”

He explains further. “When it comes to my mental health, [I] focus on what I can control and work on that. And that gives me something to work towards rather than something to deal with or work through or manage my life through.”

With the injury now behind him and no immediate roles coming up, Cavill is working on sprinting. “I want to build a better engine,” says Cavill, who has partnered with MuscleTech supplement company. “One of the things my physical therapy for my hamstring showed me was that I have a lot of capacity in my engine but I have not accessed it. And it’s something which I really want to build upon.”

written by Jasper IX.VII

Here comes the latest addition to the Henry-Cavill-as-a-spy cinematic universe! Henry is part of an all-star cast for Matthew Vaughn’s next project, Argylle!

DEADLINE – Argylle, which Vaughn will direct and produce via his banner Marv, will star Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, John Cena and Samuel L. Jackson.

Pop star Dua Lipa will make her acting debut on the project and will provide original music for the title track and score.

The film, based on the soon to be launched spy novel Argylle from author Ellie Conway, follows “the world’s greatest spy” ‘Argylle’ as he is caught up in a globe-trotting adventure.

The movie will be the first of at least three films in the franchise and is set in America, London and multiple locations across the world.

Matthew Vaughn commented: “When I read this early draft manuscript I felt it was the most incredible and original spy franchise since Ian Fleming’s books of the 50s. This is going to reinvent the spy genre.”

Zygi Kamasa, CEO of Marv added: “We are delighted that we will be starting our fourth, and by far the biggest, feature film production since the start of the global pandemic. It demonstrates both our desire to scale up our production activity and our ambition to continue to launch new franchises beyond the Kingsman series of films.”
