Henry Cavill has been seen in a muscular body in every shirtless scene that he portrayed. When the actor went on to The Graham Norton Show, he was asked to take off his shirt in front of the live audience and Television screens. The people called out the host for this as Graham Norton seemed to have crossed the limit.
When Graham Norton Asked Henry Cavill To Remove His Shirt
The Witcher actor always plays a buffed-up person in every role that he portrays. Taking such strong roles as Superman and Geralt of Rivia (in The Witcher), the actor had to work out for years along with a proper dieting plan.
While on The Graham Norton Show with co-star Amy Adams, Henry Cavill was asked to remove his shirt in front of the live audience and on television to see if he still maintained that physique. The video starts with Graham Norton showing a shirtless photo of the buffed-up actor and asking about the time it took for him to mold his body.
“How long did it take to be that” said Graham Norton while pointing to the screen. Henry Cavill started saying, “To get to that stage it took like 9 months”. “And if you would just slip off your clothes now…what would you” said Graham Norton as Amy Adams started to clap and cheer for her co-star.
With an already uncomfortable Henry Cavill, Graham Norton pursued further,
“It’s the TV! It would go viral. What would you like, do you still look like that?” Henry Cavill replied, “Ehhh no. I look nothing like that now. That’s sort of…” he continued when he was cut off abruptly by a “boo”.
The fans took to the YouTube comments section and barraged attacks at Graham Norton for asking someone to do that in front of a live audience. Some of the comments read as below,
“‘Men aren’t objectified in media’ yeah right.”
“Poor guy Every interview He’s being sexualized”
“Got to love a video that goes from sexual harassment and objectifying to body shaming. “Highlarious”!
The YouTube comments are indeed true since Henry Cavill is sexualized and thirsted over in many of the interviews that the actor has been to. The actor was last seen starring alongside Millie Bobby Brown in Enola Holmes 2 and during one of the promotions, the actor had some thoughts about his upcoming Superman role in the DCU.
Henry Cavill’s Quest For Reprising Superman in the DCU
During one of the promotional videos of Enola Holmes 2, a film critic asked Cavill’s thoughts about the upcoming (rumored) Man of Steel 2. The actor much to people’s surprise said that they are currently at ground zero. Stating that the project was still in the early stages of development, Henry Cavill said that they are still developing the script of the movie and that is what was so exciting for the actor.
In similar news, Dwayne Johnson recently took to Twitter and gave a hurtful status update on Superman’s return to the DCU. The Jumanji actor stated that he is doing everything in his power to involve Henry Cavill’s Superman further in upcoming DCU projects but it is up to the higher-ups for the final say.
Suffice it to say, the people did love his return in Black Adam but his future in the DCU still remains a bit questionable. Henry Cavill’s latest movie Enola Holmes 2 can be streamed on Netflix.
