Henry Cavill opened himself to public attention when he decided to take the lead role in ‘Man of Steel’. However, in a new interview with Voices of Krypton, he talks about the public perception sometimes being difficult to handle.
He talks about being under the microscope, and says, “If I were to take everyone’s comments to heart then of course, I think it would be [difficult]. There’s very hurtful stuff out there and wonderful stuff too, so I’d be thrown between having an enormous ego and a very small, crushed one. So it’s one of those things where it’s all part of the entertainment. It’s going to happen, people are going to talk and that’s great. If people are talking, they’re being entertained in one way or another, so carry on.”
He also spoke about what’s really important to him, continuing, “It is a microscope and you’ve just got to remember that the people who are really important to you in your life–when they’re inspecting you under a microscope and finding flaws, that’s a really bad thing…but everyone else, they’re fully entitled to their opinions. They can fire away, they can troll on the Internet forums, whatever they want and good for them. As long as I’m entertaining, I’m entertaining.”
Cavill has kept his private life from being scrutinized, but he recently broke up with his long-time girlfriend and started dating ‘Haywire’ star Gina Carano. He will be seen in ‘Man of Steel’ on June 14th, 2013.
