Henry Cavill has been known to be a gentleman in his professional as well as his personal life. The actor, who recently starred in Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam, talked about his childhood.
Growing up with five brothers, Henry Cavill recalled the drawn line that should not be crossed under any circumstances. The line was drawn about where the punches would land and where the fighting stopped.
Henry Cavill Talks About The Fighting Rule With His Brothers
The video showcases Henry Cavill sitting on the interview seat and talking about his childhood days. The Man of Steel actor stated that he had no problem with testosterone as he grew up in a home of five boys.
The actor came on the Happy Sad Confused Podcast hosted by Josh Horowitz. Talking about the in-fighting between brothers and some failed to sugarcoat the family of the Cavill brothers.
“There were lots of um..lots of…I mean there was lots of fighting. So much so that there was…” stated Henry Cavill. The sentence was cut-off by Josh Horowitz and the interviewer stated jokingly,
“You were about to sugarcoat it but you were like ‘no no, there was a LOT of fighting'”.
Henry Cavill continued the topic by stating the rules of the fighting wherein a particular line was never to be crossed.
“There was a rule. No punching in the face. Punch ANYWHERE else. But even then, if you did that…you were asking for a line drawn in the sand. Okay cool, so now, d*ck punches are okay”
Josh Horowitz continued the joke by asking Cavill to adopt the same set of rules in their relationship right now. Henry Cavill once again went into the detailing of the fight rules and clarified the importance of not punching in the face.
“Face punches were always off the cards. You did that, you’ve crossed a line. And there’s now a problem rather than a slight disagreement.”
The actor appeared on the podcast to talk about his latest upcoming movie Enola Holmes 2. Joined by Millie Bobby Brown and Helena Bonham Carter, the trio formed the Holmes family as Enola navigated through the scales of London.
When Henry Cavill Was Homesick
Although the actor, 39 years of age, is as strong as a Witcher, he recalled a time when he was terribly homesick. During his childhood days, Henry Cavill was eager to leave Saint Helier (his birthplace) to start school. During the podcast, the actor revealed the moment he realized how terribly wrong he was.
“I think I was just, terribly homesick. I didn’t realise how homesick I was going to be. I was so keen to go to boarding school and I just wanted desperately to get off this island and get away from my parents. And as soon as I remember, my mum leaving, I was like ‘oh no'”
The actor has been heavily involved in the DCU now thanks to Dwayne Johnson and the people’s support. Henry Cavill has also left The Witcher franchise and was recently seen as Sherlock Holmes in Enola Holmes 2.
Enola Holmes 2 is available to stream on Netflix while Black Adam is currently running in theaters worldwide.
