Henry Cavill Admits He Loves Making Big Bucks for Acting
At least Henry Cavill’s modest…
“I’m slightly wary of saying this, because it can be frowned upon, certainly by members of my community and people outside my community,” he said. “But I’m not just doing this for the art. The money’s fantastic and that’s something which I deem — and again, it is frowned upon — very important.”
Well, I don’t think anyone is going to accuse him of being dishonest, which, I guess, is something… Cavill elaborated on just how great his life is now that he’s got mountains of dough to play with.
“You’ve got to enjoy life! I mean, you’ve got to,” he declared. “When I’m making money I’m spending it on nice stuff, whether that be lavish holidays for me and my friends or just seeing something and going in a shop and saying, ‘Yeah, I want that for the house,’ I’m buying it. Spending money on my friends, buying dinner for everyone, drinks for everyone, it’s a nice place to be, and I like people to feel cared for.”
The 32-year-old knows that his comments about enjoying his enormous salaries will ruffle feathers, but he struggles to consider backtracking in the name of humility.
“People will be calling me a cock as they’re reading this, but travel’s great as long as you’re going first class. I mean, traveling to New Zealand in economy, it sucks. Especially if you’re over six feet. But first class? I’m not going to ever pretend to be coy about that. I love it.”
So, if by chance you were wondering if Henry Cavill is enjoying the gigantic paydays he receives to be epic in a red cape… Why yes, yes he does.
