Amy Adams, like any other, had also fallen prey to the otherworldly charms of Henry Cavill while spending time on set shooting Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, just as the situation couldn’t get any more mortifying, Amy Adams proved herself wrong as she now goes on to remember one of her supremely embarrassing encounters while interacting with her on-screen partner and Superman actor, Henry Cavill.


In an interview with Marie Claire, Amy Adams expressly reveals her set experience with the multifaceted Man of Steel actor and how she later managed to handle the situation that gave Adams much cause to be flustered about.

Amy Adams Recounts Her Time With Henry Cavill on BvS Set

Cast as the iconic and globally celebrated journalist Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel (2013), Amy Adams brought an aura of quiet fierceness to her character. She soon became the center that rooted the film’s titular godlike superhero into a grounded persona and realized him being capable of extraordinary compassion and more humanity than could be imagined. Soon after, the story that directly picked up from the events of Man of Steel‘s climactic finale led to the epic and unparalleled narrative of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

While on set shooting the second DCEU film, Amy Adams came across a robed Henry Cavill and subjected him to her constant ogling while filming and in between takes. She claims:


“In between shots it was like, ‘Put on a robe please, and make everyone feel less bad about themselves.’ I objectified poor Henry. I had to apologize to him at one point. I’m like, ‘I promise I’m not that pervy’… My husband likes to look at him, our [five-year-old] daughter likes to look at him — we’re just a creepy family.”

Even though the encounter comes across as rather comical than embarrassing, it does not stop there. Adams goes on to dig herself into a deeper hole and she continues to land herself in multiple mortifying situations with the British actor.

While most actors would either prefer silent admiration or professionalism, Amy Adams takes it a notch further when she, in her flustered state, kisses Henry Cavill’s stomach while he acts out a shirtless scene.

“Henry had to take his shirt off and I didn’t know what to do. I’m just sitting there and he looks like that and I kissed his belly. It was the weirdest [thing] – why would I take that choice in that moment? I was mortified, I was like ‘Henry I’m so sorry.’”

Her poor decision-making capability in a flustered moment continues beyond the sets of DC’s Batman v Superman when she came up with the idea for an unscripted kiss with her co-star, Jennifer Lawrence while filming the Oscar-nominated movie, American Hustle.

“Well, I feel like Jennifer really made that contribution. I came up with the idea, but she executed it in a way that felt driven purely from character. It didn’t just feel like a moment where two girls are going to kiss onscreen — it felt emotional. And the laugh [Lawrence] gives after? That was genius.”

Even though the saga stops here, for now, Henry Cavill’s DCU return might give Amy Adams the opportunity to reprise her role as the Pulitzer-winning journalist once more — giving way to the two actors’ encounters on set that hopefully lead to creating memories rather than border on uncomfortable objectification.
