Henry Cavill on Handling His “Super” Fame: “There’s no knowing what it’s going to feel like and how it’s going to affect my life” (video)

henry-cavill-man-of-steelHenry Cavill was certainly a known actor before he was cast as Superman in Man of Steel, but there is something about playing one of the world’s most famous and beloved fictional characters that pushes “known actor” to international superstar.  Cavill spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about his expectations for how his life might change now that everyone and their mother has seen him wearing that S-shield.

When asked if he has a plan for coping with the fame, he responds, “I don’t know if you can be ready for that, to be honest.  There’s no knowing what it’s going to feel like and how it’s going to affect my life.  Going to Starbucks is now a thing of the past.”

However, he adds, “I think what I’m going to do is just enjoy the journey, ride the wave, and if the punches come, roll with them.”

Famously, Cavill unsuccessfully auditioned for the Superman role several years ago though the film never went forward.  When asked what he would’ve told the pre-Superman Cavill if he could, Cavill answers, “Keep on following your instincts because so far it seems to have worked out.”

Hmmm… seems like advice Superman himself would give, right?
