Why was the actor who played Superman nicknamed «The main misogynist in Hollywood?»

We tell the story of a high-profile scandal that has remained in the shadows...

Henry Cavill: The High-profile Story That Changed the Actor's Life. Firing from a movie studio and the stigma of being «Hollywood's most misogynistic man»

Not so long ago, American and European news agencies once again raised the issue of feminism and discrimination. By the way, in the West they really do abuse the loud headlines about the infringement of other minorities. But this time with good reason - it was the behavior of a famous woman, who was not a minority, that was to blame for this. Actor Henry Cavill on the set of two major new film projects!

It's a fair question: Who would grip a grown white man?

No one, for he himself discriminated against... women on the set! We tell you about the sad experience of filming with Henry, and what he lost because of his, to put it mildly, radical views on life.

Who is Henry Cavill?

The actor managed to make a name for himself long enough, but many of us do not know him. The fact is that Henry Cavill's acting career has been in superhero movies - so beloved by children around the world.

Henry's first "shot" project was «Man of Steel» - Zack Snyder's 2013 American film about the story of that very Superman from the DC Comics. According to the plot, the main character, played by Henry, gained a number of inhuman abilities thanks to the connection with the planet Krypton - he was able to fly, gained incredible physical strength and endurance, as well as the ability to emit a laser from his eyes. In general - everything as Americans love!

Superman is one of the most beloved heroes of Western teenagers, and there have been quite a few movies about him since the 1980s. However, it was the 2013 reboot that Produced by Christopher NolanThe film, which became a cult in the series, sums up all the previous material. It's up to you to decide whether to watch it or not, but, as the critics point out, the film gained popularity (and considerable box office receipts) not so much due to the plot, but rather due to the incredible special effects. And, of course, the handsome Henry Cavill as Superman.

Then on the set, he behaved quite decently, and the crew spoke of him as a decent and intelligent actor. But, as is often the case, rabid fame changes people...

Cavill's next significant role is. Geralt from the series "The Witcher.. For those who have not heard of the Witcher universe, let us tell you in a few words: the idea of a story about a courageous monster hunter was born by the Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski and was embodied in the fantasy series of works of the same name. Somewhat later, the world saw computer games based on Polish bestsellers, and in 2019 the series with Henry Cavill in the title role premiered.

Actor's behavior on the set

It remains a mystery what could have "blown Henry Cavill's mind": the fame of the top projects or the enormous money due to participate in them. Anyway, from the filming of the next part of "Superman" and the second season of "The Witcher" Henry was kicked out! And both film studios did it almost simultaneously!

Colleagues on the set admitted that working with Cavill has become like a nightmare. The British actor's defiant behavior is to blame. The news was first published by the portal DeuxmoiHe became famous in the West for his numerous publications of celebrity gossip.

So, Henry made a real mess on the set. He was rude to the directors and other actors, and rudely refused to participate in the scenes he did not like, disrupting the filming process. Also Cavill was often late for filming. The reason is ridiculous: At home, he couldn't tear himself away from his computer games! As Henry himself later admitted, she even almost missed the call of director Zack Snyder, who wanted to offer him the role...

But what caused everyone's indignation were his acts of... misogyny! And it wasn't about harassment at all.

Anti-feminism or head problems

It all started when Henry Cavill befriended a screenwriter who turned out to be our hero's video game buddy. The British actor communicated only with him and at the same time flatly refused to even talk with female writers!

Later he openly declared a boycott of the entire women's team and showed contempt as much as he could. At the same time Henry actively used gamer slang in his speech. He resented his scenes involving women and disrupted the filming process in every way possible.

Was Henry Cavill kicked out, or did he leave on his own?

In the end, he had to kick out. Who will take the place of a young man in the film projects - has not yet been reported. But he himself, most likely, will just take his place at the computer with games. Well, maybe it's really more interesting than participating in films with box office receipts exceeding hundreds of millions of dollars...

What remains unclear is the reason for this behavior on the set, which colleagues have called extremely toxic. Could it be that he himself decided to leave the movie, while causing a loud scandal in this way? We can only find out by observing his behavior in the future.
