Time and again, actor Henry Cavill has casually confessed that he is a money-oriented person. And that making movies is just something he does as a profession, not for the art they bring. Cavill made his Hollywood debut in 2001 with Laguna. Following which the actor’s career only went uphill in the industry. And today, he is one of the most accomplished names. Cavill is best known for his roles as DC’s Superman, Geralt of Rivia in the Netflix fantasy series The Witcher, Sherlock Holmes in the movie Enola Holmes and more.

Not long ago, the Justice League actor disclosed how this tiny detail in his film was gnawing at him. And how he wished he could act it out differently. He talked about a scene at the end of the movie. In it, he smiles while talking to Martha. The location indeed is one of the audience’s favourites. Because Cavill looks incredibly charming in it. But the actor says he was pretty annoyed with the smile. And he added how he would have instead given it another shot.

When Henry Cavill Revealed He Makes Movies Not Just For The Art, “The Money’s Fantastic”

Henry Cavill boldly admits how money plays an essential role in his life.

Regardless of having performed exceptionally in some of the biggest hits, Henry Cavill has made several debatable affirmations to the media. Earlier, in 2016, the Mission: Impossible – Fallout actor unabashedly declared how he made movies for the money, more than the art. In an interview with the Man of the World magazine, Cavill said, “I’m slightly wary of saying this because it can be frowned upon, certainly by members of my community and people outside my community.”

Henry Cavill added, “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.” The actor also admitted to being generous as he liked to spread his hard-earned wealth around to his friends and family, outside of spending the money on himself.

“You’ve got to enjoy life! I mean, you’ve got to,” he said. “When I’m making money, I’m spending it on nice stuff, whether that be lavish holidays for me and my friends. 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,” Cavill adds.

Henry Cavill is aware that many people frown upon this perspective. Considering this, the actor also added, “People will be calling me a c— as they’re reading this, but travel’s great as long as you’re going first class. I mean, travelling 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.”
