Building his resume isn’t Henry Cavill's only incentive for nabbing big acting gigs.
“I’m slightly wary of saying this, because it can be frowned upon, certainly by members of my community and people outside my community,” Cavill told Man of the World magazine. “But I’m not just doing this for the art. The money’s fantastic and that’s something which I deem — and again, it is frowned upon — very important.”
The 32-year-old stud, who stars alongside Ben Affleck in the upcoming “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” shared that while he’s reveled in the exuberant lifestyle, he doesn’t take it for granted.
“You’ve got to enjoy life! I mean, you’ve got to,” he exclaimed. “When I’m making money I’m spending it on nice stuff, whether that be lavish holidays for me and my friends or just seeing something and going in a shop and saying, ‘Yeah, I want that for the house,’ I’m buying it. Spending money on my friends, buying dinner for everyone, drinks for everyone, it’s a nice place to be, and I like people to feel cared for,” Cavill added.
“People will be calling me a c--k as they’re reading this, but travel’s great as long as you’re going first class. I mean, traveling to New Zealand in economy, it sucks. Especially if you’re over six feet. But first class? I’m not going to ever pretend to be coy about that. I love it.”
With a new 19-year-old gal pal on his arm, Cavill admitted he’s making up for lost time after forgoing college as a teen.
“I didn’t get to mess about and be a university kid, but I get to mess about now,” he said. “And I’ve actually got money to spend on nice places, rather than having to go to grotty pubs that stink of piss.”
“I don’t like to focus on things that I missed out on. I also got huge benefits, and that’s really good.”
