Is Henry Cavill handsome or pretty? Or is he both?

Please present your arguments with supporting visual evidence preferred. Thank you.

I saw a preview for "Man of Steel" tonight, and he looked incredibly pretty.

It's SO WRONG for the Superman role!

by Anonymousreply 112/20/2012

R1, okay, I'll bite, how was Man of Steel? More importantly, how was Henry's acting?

by Anonymousreply 212/20/2012

I saw a two-minute preview, R2, and more than half of it concerned Clark Kent's childhood in Bumfucke. Most of the rest was closeups of Superman's iconic outfit, which is made of a textured material rather than the usual leotard fabric.

I can't tell you anything about Henry's performance, as I barely got a glimpse of him. But the glimpses were very pretty.

by Anonymousreply 312/21/2012

Both. It's an equilibrium between pretty and handsome. He has a very blunt, large nose almost like a boxer, so that makes him look masculine. As does everything below the neck.

He's perfect. I want him to hold me like the bitch on a Harlequin novel cover.

He's hot.

Meh.. he's overrated. I don't find him that hot tbh. And I don't like him as Superman either.

There's already a ton of "Man of Steel" fan art on Deviantart, and some of it is amazing.

Some people see Henry as masculine-handsome...

Being able to tell that two actors who look nothing alike are two different people has to be a litmus test for something.

R22, I think that poster got mixed up because they were both in the same movie (The Immortals)

Both. He has pretty lips and eyes and a handsome bone structure and manly bearing.

R24, why would you want to bury your face in his ass in particular even though you're not a regular ass eater?

I don't know, OP.

All I want to know is whether he's gay.

He's gay. Get over it, fangurls.

If he is, he isn't coming out anytime soon, R29.

So far he says he is straight and dates women.

Using Photoshop, it's not difficult to turn a picture of Henry into a picture of Matt. I did this in under 20 mins using just the Warp tool under Liquify.

Matt Bomer as Superman.

Why all these cartoon pics of Henry? Link the real thing.

by Anonymousreply 3212/23/2012

He's both. When he's scruffy, he's handsome. Clean shaven he's VERY pretty. Even his slight case of British fangs is a turn on.

Can't we just agree he's pretty handsome, and his looks won't last, unfortunately, as the worry lines take over?

Henry Cavill and Amber Heard should beard for each other. Those two are the most stunning-looking actors today.

Easier to judge video than pictures.

Matt Bomer's face is perfect for Superman, but he's a little too short to be Superman.

He's also too skinny, R39.

Worry lines from having to stay in the closet?

by Anonymousreply 4112/23/2012

If only he actually had leaning man charisma. He is always wooden on screen, maybe a result from being so deep in the closet.

So lovely but such a bad actor.

by Anonymousreply 4512/23/2012

An actor with Henry's looks can get away with a degree of woodenness. Look at the careers of Robert Redford and Harrison Ford. As long as they play to the "strong silent type" expectation, a good deal of the acting work is done on the part of the audience's projection. There was nothing particularly noteworthy about Michael Schoeffling's acting in "Sixteen Candles", and yet he managed to turn an entire generation of men gay.

Ellen barkin is a shameless whore in that clip. Love her!

+ Insane facial symmetry and angles

+ Love the pinky ring

+ Love the chest hair peaking out

+ Must. Suck. That. Bulge.

So were Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Cavill fucking during "The Tudors" filming?

by Anonymousreply 6212/28/2012

I don't remember any rumours about them at the time, R62, but not many people knew who Cavill was then since JRM was more famous in those days. And I think people assumed Cavill was straight since he was playing a pussy hound.

But considering that JRM himself has had gay/bi rumours for years, anything is possible . . .

Another one of my favorite Henry pictures... it looks like he just walked off the movie screen a la Purple Rose of Cairo, to mingle with the mortals.

The fan girls on imdb make fun of his shoes quite often. I think he has good taste in shoes.

The answer, OP, is neither. He is not pretty and he is not handsome. He is BEAUTIFUL! A gift from the Gods.

And no one has posted his best pictures yet, so I will do the honors, starting with this one. He has incredible expressive eyes.

R75, of course, Luke and Henry have gotten it on before, during, and after Immortals. They wear each other clothes and hang out. In this interview, with the telling part starts after the last photo of Luke in all black, shows how even the interviewer wonders about these two. S/he even asks them have they met before Immortals. Usually, you do that when there is something obvious going on called, chemistry.

by Anonymousreply 8312/28/2012

Luke doesn't seem good-looking enough to be with Henry.

by Anonymousreply 8412/29/2012

Nobody is good-looking enough to be with Henry. All that is important is that he have the love of a good and caring man. Or woman, should he turn out to swing that way.

I fixed the drawing @ r13 to be more Henry-like. It did not look like him when I put it as my cell phone wallpaper. I also changed to colors to look like the new costume.

[quote]Nobody is good-looking enough to be with Henry.

4 or 5 years ago I would've agreed with you, but the last 2 years he's started to age a lot. Still good looking, but not a cute as 4 or 5 years ago.

Why is it that so many British men look good in their early to mid 20's, and then by 30 they start aging rapidly?

by Anonymousreply 9112/29/2012

R91, the Brits are heavy drinkers and smokers, as well as being big overeaters.

Seriously, I asked my British grandmother about this recently because I wanted to know too. It seems to be a combination of pub life and a lot of other factors.

by Anonymousreply 9212/29/2012

R92 I think you might be right - all the late nights and heavy drinking and smoking must catch up fast. Just look at Tom Hardy, Jude Law and Luke Evans - they all look rough for their age.

by Anonymousreply 9312/29/2012

I think what did it for Luke was the excessive amount of weight he lost, 30 pounds!

If you compare what he looked like in Tamara Drewe to Immortals, that's a big difference.

Mind you he left Tamara Drewe to start filming Immortals.

Here he is what he looked like for TD.

by Anonymousreply 9412/30/2012

To this, which is some major weigh loss for someone who didn't need to lose an ounce.

I sure hope he snaps out of this fitness craze and go back to eating, to regain that Tamara Drewe glory days.

You can say that again. Could you imagine HIM trying to do a comedy or a drama? He'll forever be doing lame action films since those require the least emotion.

He should try doing more supporting roles to work on his awful acting, but I guess diva Henry insists that he be the star in every film he does now.

by Anonymousreply 9912/30/2012

How tall is he? The shoes he is wearing in the airport photos have quite a tall heel on them.

by Anonymousreply 10012/30/2012

6'1" officially so prob about an inch shorter in real life.

by Anonymousreply 10112/30/2012

Perhaps, but I don't think he is exaggerating his height too much. It's obvious that he is around 6 feet one way or another.

by Anonymousreply 10212/30/2012

He's made the transition from twink to lean muscle to bulk (21 - 26 - 31).

That's a fairly standard urban gay male progression, although the lean muscle phase usually lasts longer.

by Anonymousreply 10312/30/2012

Could you translate that into English please, R103?

I think R105 was meant to be a sarcastic response, R106.

I assume those numbers refer to his measurements in some way.
