Henry Cavill on his approach to his film roles

Tuesday June 11, 2013

Henry Cavill has said that the characters he portrays in his movies never go home with him - because he sees acting simply as his job, not his life.

The British actor, 30, who will soon be seen as Superman in the upcoming Man Of Steel - told Interview magazine that he tries to avoid getting too "involved" with his alter-egos.

When asked about the chemistry he has to realize between Clark/Superman and Lois Lane (Amy Adams), he said: "Well, it's our job as actors to make it look like it's not manufactured.

"If you have two actors who understand their characters - and therefore what they are trying to portray - then all they need to do is be the characters and there's a chemistry there."

The The Tudors actor continued: "I mean, there are these fantasies among people who watch movies where they're like, 'Oh, there's a chemistry between them - something going on.' And sometimes there is.

"But for me, it's more like, I go to work, I do a job, I play a role, and then I go home. I don't wear a cape at home.”
