Some people just like to complain about anything a celeb says. As if they aren't human with thoughts and opinions of their own. Some people seem to think that any personal opinion voiced by a celeb is an attack on their opinion. His opinion is actually refreshingly honest and real and that's just from a silly little puff piece.

He is a such selfish ass for wanting to secure himself financially. If only he gave a fake answer to make ten losers happy!

I sure hope he's able to sleep tonight!

Surly the people complaining work their jobs for just the love of it. They live in nice warm cardboard boxes and eat their hopes and dreams to stay alive.

I remember back when THE BRIDGE TOO FAR was coming out. One of the stories about the movie was how Robert Redford was paid like a million dollars (I really can't remember if it was one or three million) for the short part he had in it. One million dollars was a huge amount for any actor in that time. Some reporters asked him why he thought the small part was worth that amount. He said - It wasn't......He said they offered him the role, and he turned it down because it was small and didn't fit in with what he planned to do...he said they then offered him the million (or three) to make it...and he then said - I'm not an idiot....I took it.

I really hope I'm not included group of losers. Just want some clarification on that.

Can't say I disagree. Want life to be one notch less tough than it has to be? Get some money.

I don't think one person alone speaks for IMDB. If you noticed, quite a few members on the site came to Henry's defense. The problem with IMDB is that their mods are weaksauce; they allow threads like that to go on forever.

Agreed.

He was honest about it, and I respect that. At the end of the day, it's a job, like any other. It has it's benefits, it has it's problems, it has stress, etc.

Even Superman gotta eat.

It's hard to make judgments on those words without hearing or seeing Cavill say them. What he's saying isn't untrue.

Cavill has a point, this is just a job. His past career shows that he has been desperate in trying to get to a big franchise, he didn't save himself for Superman, and even Christian Bale who had been actively pursuing the role of Batman even before any reboots were in development hardly said "no need to pay" and like Tom Hardy said "[doing superhero movies] it turns you into a stahhhh".

Well I think he's the kind of guy who likes his job but if course as everyone he wouldn't do it if he wasn't getting paid. Nobody would do their job for free.

It doesn't matter how Cavill said those words because there's nothing wrong with what he said.

For all their carrying on about their "craft" I'll bet if Hollywood were to start paying no better than community theater 90% of Hwood's actors would quit their jobs immediately.

haha, I think it depends on if the person saying it is known for being humble or not. If someone else who is kind of a jerk said it I think we'd have a differing opinion.

I love how the guy on the IMDB board mentions that Cavill should have never brought it up. He didn't, the interviewer asked him a question and he answered it. Next.

I wouldn't but others might. I like to think that common sense would prevail, though.

Agreed. I'm fine with people being passionate about acting but I do like when people acknowledge that it is a paying job. Most actors are uncomfortable with saying what Cavill said because as you can see people for some odd reason twist that into he is greedy.

I mean no wonder actors always give the pat answers to questions. Hell Jennifer Lawrence was attacked by snooty insiders for saying that acting isn't as important as a job in which people save lives. Eventhough what she said is 100% true.

I mean I wouldnt go as far as to say I want to be rich and successful, but oviously playing a huge superhero in a mutiple picture deal is a big commitment, obviously money is going to be a factor.

That said, its good that Henry will be playing multiple ages. As in, I assume he'll be playing 21 aged Clark-to 30 year old Clark.

Jennifer Lawrence is truly awesome! Just the way she behaves and acts when she's giving an interview or whatever she's doing is a joy for me to watch and listen. She's not the most beautiful woman I've seen (and I mean that in a positive way, no matter how weird this sounds), but she's so damn attractive and charming.
