Urmm.. I think Bruce Malone is taling about the frame (Bone structure, wide shoulders).
Reeve arguably had the best and biggest frame regardless of muscle mass he had.
In terms of frame size -
Chris reeve > Tom welling > Routh > Cavill.
Cavill has great genetics and muscles but he has average frame.
