‘I’m going to be called a rapist or something’: Henry Cavill is Afraid of Chasing Women, Said Wooing a Woman These Days is More Dangerous Than ‘Fires of Hell’

Henry Cavill

Finding a partner in today’s world isn’t as easy as you think. No matter what anyone says, you got to have the looks, and it’s evident that an actor like Henry Cavill got that part down. Cavill’s had his fair share of girlfriends in the past, and it seems like he got them by ‘wooing’ them.

In this sense, the Man of Steel star has a sort of millennial look at how men should be chasing women, through ‘wooing’. But thoughts were running heavy on his mind back in 2018 at the peak of the #MeToo movement, and he claimed that it’s been hard for him to go about his own way of chasing women ever since.

For Henry Cavill, Wooing A Woman Is A Scary Experience

Henry Cavill has the looks, body, charm, and wealth with which anyone would be willing to date the British actor. Those features have worked out well for him and his love life, as Cavill is currently dating former Legendary Entertainment Vice President Natalie Viscuso.

The two are a perfect pair who started dating in 2021 and seem to be interested in each other’s hobbies and interests too as we can deduct from Viscuso’s Instagram post. Their chemistry is great, for sure, but we’re confused as to how Cavill managed to get a partner after his comments on chasing women backing 2018.

When the #MeToo movement reached its peak back in 2018 as a popular movement to call out s**ual abuse and r**e culture, Henry Cavill was figuring out how to approach women after failing to break free from an old-fashioned way of ‘chasing’ women-

During an interview with GQ Australia in 2018, Cavill expressed his opinions on how the movement affected his personal life, and to be specific, how he chose to approach women-

“There’s something wonderful about a man chasing a woman. There’s a traditional approach to that, which is nice. I think a woman should be wooed and chased, but maybe I’m old-fashioned for thinking that.”

He further adds-

“It’s very difficult to do that if there are certain rules in place. Because then it’s like: ‘Well, I don’t want to go up and talk to her, because I’m going to be called a rapist or something’. So you’re like, ‘Forget it, I’m going to call an ex-girlfriend instead, and then just go back to a relationship, which never really worked’.”

He further concludes his opinion by saying that the whole experience for him at the time was like “casting myself into the fires of hell”, which only tells us how out of touch with reality a lot of celebrities are.

Henry Cavill Got A Lot Of Backlash For His Comments

It’s truly a miracle how Henry Cavill still got along with Natalie Viscuso. He pretty much told everyone on such a huge public platform as the GQ interview that he wasn’t too sure about chasing women.

The comments, if he really did mean it, were just the honest ramblings of a confused man. But the internet showed no mercy in calling out the Man of Steel star for his words, which honestly just comes off as dismissive of the whole point of the #MeToo movement.

Twitter had a field day after the GQ interview went public-

Would you agree that the Man of Steel star is an incel?-

When’s the last time someone used the word ‘wuss’-

Cavill’s tone and choice of words were poor… –

Four years later, all the negative feedback about the 39-year-old’s comments has largely been forgotten. With reports of Man of Steel 2 currently underway and awaiting the start of its production, it can only be hoped that Henry Cavill’s PR team can take care of any further controversy.
