Henry Cavill was “Superman”, Tom Cruise’s opponent in “Mission: Impossible 6 – Fallout” and Agent Solo in “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” – and thus a worthy “GQ Man of the Year 2018”. In the exclusive interview he talks about his difficult start in the film business, his time as a mustache bearer – and how a rejection became the most important moment of his career.
Photographer by Markus Jans and stylist Joanna Greszczuk they did a great work with Hollywood actor Henry Cavill.
Her career began 18 years ago. At that time, they worked in bars and nightclubs in England to afford the auditioning auditions in Los Angeles.
Wearing Hugo Boss and Dolce & Gabbana the actor admits “as a young actor, you really do not have it easy: you need a name to get the big parts, but to make a name for yourself, you need big parts … There have been many moments in which I’ve thought of that To hang up a film career and go to the military. That was my plan B.”
“Interestingly, it was a job I did not get, James Bond in Casino Royale. I made it to the screen test in the casting and was shortlisted until the last two if the rumors are true. This was reported in the industry magazine Variety and suddenly I received a very different attention. My name suddenly had a certain weight and new possibilities opened up. So I got the role in the series “The Tudors”. That was the beginning of a new phase of my career.”
You can find the entire interview and all the pictures in the latest GQ, which will be available from 10th January.
