Spoiler alert: Henry Cavill isn’t exactly an ARTIST.
I know, it’s probably not a surprise considering the garbage Superman movie the dude just made. Still, it’s hard to hear him talk to Man of the World (via Entertainment Tonight) about the reason why he’s acting…DOLLA DOLLA BILLZ, YO.
“I’m slightly wary of saying this because it can be frowned up, certainly by members of my community and people outside my community … but I’m not just doing this for the art,” the 32-year-old said. “The money’s fantastic and that’s something which I deem — and again, it is frowned upon — very important.”
Cavill probably secretly knows that his new movie Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice, is total garbage, and now he’s admitting what most actors might: that earning large sums of money allows him to enjoy life and if we’re being really honest, his 19 year old girlfriend is probably really into it, too.
“When I’m making money, I’m spending it on stuff, whether that be lavish holidays for me and my friends, or just seeing something and going in a shop and saying, ‘Yeah, I want that for the house,’ and buying it,” he noted. “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.”
Again, I don’t fault him. I mean, quite honestly I RESPECT him more, because you know EVERY actor thinks this way. The question is- will the British actor completely sell out, or do you think he’ll do some passion projects down the line?
