“Are you kidding me? I had to start telling the producers, “Stop making me take my clothes off.” One year they said, “For the publicity shot, we’re going to have you shirtless holding a horse.” I said, “Why the f*ck am I shirtless? My character has changed. He’s a morose, depressed dude.” They’re like, “Yeah…but people love it.”

The interviewer further asked Cavill if he felt objectified by the requests and the actor said that he was actually flattered.

“Every single girlfriend has asked. I say I don’t have a list and they go, “Okay, well I’ve got this person….” And I go, “Stop right there. I don’t need to know who you really want to have s*x with. I’m probably going to work with that person.” I just explained this to my girlfriend. She said, “That’s a fair point.”
