Henry Cavill’s Me Too Comments Spark Controversy On Twitter

Henry Cavill’s contemporary feedback at the Me Too motion had been met with vital backlash after the actor recommended that by way of going as much as communicate to a girl, he would possibility being “called a rapist or something.”

The “Man of Steel” big name spoke with GQ Australia and, after parsing thru his movie occupation and the way he offers with the paparazzi, he was once requested about what he’s discovered from the Me Too motion.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to not be around the kind of people who behave that way,” he mentioned.

“To my memory there’s been no moments where I look back and think, ‘Ooh, OK, maybe someone shouldn’t have gone through that,’” he mentioned. “I know there have been situations with people I’ve worked with being perhaps overfamiliar with some of the actresses. But, I’ve always walked up to them and said, ‘Hey, are you all right? That’s creepy.’”

The interviewer pressed on and requested the actor if the motion has made him mirror on his personal movements, to which he mentioned he’s “never been like that.” He went a step additional to try to unpack extra concerning the motion, announcing that “any human being alive today, if someone casts too harsh a light on anything, you could be like, ‘Well, OK, yeah, when you say it like that, maybe.’”

“But it’s such a delicate and careful thing to say because there’s flirting, which, for example, in a social environment is in context ― and is acceptable. And that has been done to me as well, in return,” he mentioned.

Men’s habits “has to change,” Cavill mentioned, however “it’s important to also retain the good things, which were a quality of the past, and get rid of the bad things.”

Waxing poetic on males chasing girls, Cavill mentioned, “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.”

“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,’” he mentioned.

“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,’” Cavill mentioned. “But it’s way safer than casting myself into the fires of hell, because I’m someone in the public eye, and if I go and flirt with someone, then who knows what’s going to happen? Now? Now you really can’t pursue someone further than, ‘No.’ It’s like, ‘OK, cool.’ But then there’s the, ‘Oh, why’d you give up?’ And it’s like, ‘Well, because I didn’t want to go to jail?’”

This a part of the interview sparked a standard reaction on Twitter:

As evidenced by way of the responses, whilst many took factor with what was once mentioned, others argued that they understood his vantage level and didn’t suppose he was once a “bad guy.”

Representatives for Cavill didn’t in an instant reply to HuffPost’s request for remark.
