Henry Cavill was spotted yesterday (November 9) in Vancouver, Canada after doing a weekend of promotions in Los Angeles for his latest film, Immortals. Henry is returning to Vancouver continue shooting his film Man of Steel.
In an interview with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, Henry revealed that he was an extra in Russell Crowe’s movie Proof of Life. He and Crowe talked, and two days later Crowe gave him a signed autograph from Gladiator.
Now Crowe is playing his father in Man of Steel and he did remember Cavill from that introduction eleven years ago. “After the end of that journey of a thousand miles, that first journey, he’s there at the end as well,” Cavill said.
Superman’s red underpants (or lack thereof) was brought up, leading Cavill to crack, “Why wear underpants when you can be far more revealing?” To get ready for the role, he said he worked out two hours a day for eight months.
