Henry Cavill for GQ UK

Posted on April 26, 2013

Since we gushed all over Matt Bomer’s Clark Kent hotness yesterday, we felt it only proper to do a solid for the real deal and feature the latest actor to don the red cape, the delicious Henry Cavill and his soulful baby blues:

Henry Cavill covers the June 2013 issue of GQ UK magazine in Tom Ford photographed by Kenneth Cappello.

Polo Shirt by Tom Ford. Jeans by Levi’s Made & Crafted. Belt by Ralph Lauren.

Suit, Shirt, and Tie by Tom Ford. Pocket Square by Giorgio Armani.


Also: thighs.

Could’ve done without the Instagram-y flatness of it all, but we couldn’t possibly work up any other complaints. Because really; this guy can catch us ANY time we fall out of a helicopter, if you know what we’re saying.

      He’s pretty, but I think it’s time for someone like Idris Elba to wear the cape.

      • Squarah

        I really wish people would support it, but all the racist reactions just to Idris playing Heimdall in Thor was incredibly depressing.

        • Sobaika

          And the crazed backlash to the mere mention of Donald Glover as Spiderman.

          • barbarienne

            Or the idea of a black Dr. Who, or the complete fucking idiots who objected to Rue (Hunger Games) being black, despite the fact that the character in the book is black. Some days I despair mightily.

            • Sobaika

              I feel you, the Rue situation was especially disheartening. I’m steeling myself for it to happen in the future with other adaptations.

            • SassieCassy

              you think so?? the rue backlash felt like a teachable moment

            • tereliz

              I want to hope so. That burned me up like you would not believe. I cry EVERY TIME I re-read that book and Rue is introduced. Dark skin and all. *grumbles*

              I have the same literary agent as Suzanne Collins, and after talking with my agent I decided to title my new novel that’s on sub SKIN. Just so no one white reading the book would automatically assume every character is white, especially the main character. Should I have to? No, but as much as I know I need to trust my readers, you never know. Sometimes they need a little prodding to get them out of their own limited povs.

            • Sobaika

              Oh I definitely think so, I don’t have that kind of optimism. I’m already anticipating either white-washed Martells or fans mad at their ethnicity in GoT.

            • barbarienne

              It was definitely a teachable moment, but that it happened at all is just so… I dunno. It just seemed like a whole new level of WTFery.

            • tereliz

              God, yes, the amount of hate that it spawned, and, more frightening, the amount of justifying it away made me sick.

      • Sobaika

        I WISH. Weren’t there rumors of Idris as Bond? That needs to happen.

        • jennifervney

          Yes! Yes it does.

        • Pants_are_a_must

          He doesn’t want to. I am sad.

          • RebeccaKW

            How about Idris Elba as He-Man? Idris in a loin cloth…a;lsdrfjother. Um, sorry, all the blood rushed from my head with that thought.

          • Le_Sigh

            ditto – that would have been AMAZING. maybe we can bring him back as jon stewart’s green lantern? any idris in tights would be delish

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Julie-Chase/731391326 Julie Chase

        I’m holding out for Idris as James Bond. He would be the perfect mix of dashing AND menacing.

        • http://completeflake.com/ LaVonne Ellis

          Idris as Bond would be awesome, but could he please bring back the Stringer Bell accent?

    • Sara__B

      Sigh. Words have deserted me.

      Oh my God, those kryptonian cheekbones deserve to be sculpted in stone.

    • Hetha Innis

      He’s delicious in The Tudors as well!

      • Sobaika

        Everyone needs to see The Tudors because a) it was kind of good and b) DAT ASS

        • pop_top

          That’s where I fell for him. In front of my bf no less, lol.

        • editrixie

          I hated his character so much in that, and yet I practically swooned every time he was on camera.

      • http://twitter.com/KathleenMKeenan Kathleen Keenan

        I kept watching just for him.

    • http://theargiehome.blogspot.com/ Gus Casals

      The last picture, in the suit… I feel all Lois Lane inside.

      • Guest

        That’s part of why I love Lois Lane. She’s the working girl or guy in all of us kicking butt at her job and then she comes home to THIS in her bed.

        • P M

          I feel your pain

        • formerlyAnon

          When you put it like that, it seems entirely implausible that she’d ever leave the bed to go TO work.

    • https://twitter.com/Gayer_Than_Thou Gayer Than Thou

      Is it just me, or does his hairline look store-bought?

      • gabbilevy

        There’s something wonky about it, but maybe it’s just stuck that way after styled constantly into the Superman whirlydoo. (Seems as good an explanation as any, right? RIGHT?!)

        • Sobaika

          You know, I parted my hair to the right forever, and all the styling/stress made it thin out a lot. It’s been over a year since I switched it and there’s still a slight bend in my hairline if you pay attention. Learn from my mistakes, everyone.

          Or that hairline may really be storebought.

          • https://twitter.com/Gayer_Than_Thou Gayer Than Thou

            It’s awfully . . . precise, you know? But it could also be that his styling was done by the Photoshop Hair and Makeup Room.

      • muzan-e

        I’ve never heard this phrase applied to hair before.
        And now that I have, I’ll be using it constantly. Thank you. *g*

        • https://twitter.com/Gayer_Than_Thou Gayer Than Thou

          You’re very welcome.

    • gorghast

      Undeniably handsome, but he’s never done a thing for me. Even mostly naked in Tarsem’s Immortals. He just doesn’t have ‘it’ to me.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Julie-Chase/731391326 Julie Chase


      That was drooling for “TAKE ME, HENRY.”

    • Anna Maria Diamanti

      I have zero desire for children, and yet this man makes my ovaries jump up and punch me in the face.

    • Judy_S

      I think he should play Superman and Bomer should play Clark Kent. Or the reverse. Or alternating.

      • Blair Sylvester

        thanks for that image. you just made friday about ten times better

      • barbarienne

        And then by some comic-book magic they are in the same place at the same time and things get VERY INTERESTING if you know what I mean.

        • P M

          That just sounds like Bollywood Logic lol

          • barbarienne

            Oh, I don’t think Bollywood would show what I was thinking of… 😉

    • http://opinionandamovie.blogspot.com/ Deitra S.

      True story: I was just typing a email with pedantic, bad work-related news to my girlfriends, and I wanted a vastly unprofessional picture of a hot guy to soften the blow. And I thought, “I know, TLo will have something for me.” And behold: Henry Cavill – in Tom Ford no less. Ask and ye shall receive. You two are the best gay uncles a girl could ever have! XOXO

    • YayaGurl

      I’ve wanted to knock his boots since he was Duke of Whateverthefuck on the Tudors.

      • Angela_the_Librarian

        AKA Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk. I’m reading Wolf Hall right now and I will always imagine him as Henry Cavill :-)

        • YayaGurl

          I think I read Wolf Hall before I watched the Tudors. Now I’ll remember when I read Bring Up the Bodies.

      • http://twitter.com/RaptorMuffin RaptorMuffin

        My roommates and I just dubbed him the Duke of Hot.

    • Emily Giovanni

      Are those cheekbones for real?

      • barbarienne

        I would be afraid to touch them and find out. They would cut my fingers.

    • PastryGoddess

      Happy friday to me and my ovaries.


    • http://twitter.com/hmbscully WendyD

      Two words: British cheekbones.

    • sk8tfan

      I realize no one is actually looking at the clothes, but after a few minutes of staring at the photos, I noticed the suit is quite beautiful.

    • Jennifer L.

      Simply gorgeous, although I’m going to be very surprised if he does more in the movie than stand around and emote “I’m thinking about the weight of being a super man” in profile.

    • Imasewsure

      If life were less judgmental about having “teen moments” in your dotage (ok I’m 50 whatever), I would plaster my office walls with posters of HC in that polo shirt. Yum-me!!

    • jilly_d

      OOOFF. I wants it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/conysoledad Constanza Álvarez Espinoza

      I really like him and I think he’s hot, but I must confess I like him better with shorter hair.

    • jennifervney

      I actually started drooling looking at these.

    • Inspector_Gidget

      I can totally buy that he’s from another planet. The planet GORGEOUS

    • crash1212

      I’m such a sucker for a guy with dark hair and blue eyes.

    • Steph Wright

      Henry Cavill is the kinda guy you swallow.

    • Kate4queen


    • Pants_are_a_must

      Fall from a helicopter? Too much work. More like save your cat from a tree. I’d be so very very grateful for that, believe me, Cavill.

    • padma sallah

      Most dude! spreads don’t inspire anything in me at all. But one look at that second photo, and I’m scrolling back up to look again. And again…

    • j_anson

      He’s very pretty. Too stereotype-male-model to be Superman in my book, but very pretty.

    • Guest

      With a bone structure like that, he has to be from another planet.

    • MilaXX


    • http://twitter.com/smithben Ben Smith

      That last picture. Jesus. That is pushing all the right buttons.

    • alyce1213

      Last picture — I’d like to throw myself on that lap.

    • tereliz

      You’ve come a long way from I Capture the Castle, Henry. I heartily approve.

    • kirkyo

      He’s never really registered with me before, but gotta say that second pic is the hottest thing I’ve ever seen on this site.

    • Pennymac

      Dayum. CHEEKBONES!

    • http://twitter.com/AshBookworm Ash

      Thighs! Cheekbones! Arms! *drools*

    • http://twitter.com/KathleenMKeenan Kathleen Keenan


      Congratulations on your face, sir.

    • snarkykitten

      he looks like a lump of dough tbh.

    • Mary229

      Take me Superman. I would throw myself out a window too.

    • soozinator

      How does he do that with his cheekbones? Just wow.

    • http://www.facebook.com/joanne.abrams Joanne Abrams

      Henry Cavill is definitely HOT. I loved him in “The Tudors”

    • H2olovngrl

      Am I alone in wanting to see Spock’s makeover?

    • http://www.facebook.com/pamela.hunt.796 Pamela Hunt

      I’d like to hang off those cheekbones..

    • AngelaGreen

      I’d follow him into a phone booth.

    • Carly Warnock

      Not enough man thigh for me but getting there.

    • kimmeister

      That last pic reminds me of Hugh Grant’s mug shot after he got busted with a prostitute.

    • stubbornthoughts

      Yes Henry, I will bear your children. So nice of you to ask.

    • NoGovernmentName

      He looks like he was made in a laboratory specifically to make ladies swoon.

    • Nonmercisansfacon

      Yes please.

    • quiltrx

      RAWR. Super yummy…SO pretty!

    • phrenk

      Both of them are bland and uninspiring to me, but I really like that suit and tie.

    • demidaemon

      You know, I think he is hot and swoonworthy and everything, but I was really distracted by that tagline on the cover about making over Spock. WTF, GQ? W.T.F.?

    • formerlyAnon

      Too pretty for me, but he really IS textbook gorgeous, isn’t he? Textbook.

    • http://twitter.com/jamiehoovs JLH

      Hell-OOOO Nurse.

    • http://twitter.com/jalae Janey

      I’m not usually a legs kinda girl but look at his thighs in the last shot…*drool*

    • glennethph

      He was just a baby twink in Count of Monte Cristo — they sure do grow up fast. And big. And hot.

    • http://profiles.google.com/phyllis.craine Phyllis Craine

      He’s in “The Tudors” for anyone who needs a hit of his gorgeousness.

    • ccm800

      he looks like skull with saphire stones in the eye sockets on that cover.

      Oh My….Matt Bomer never stood a chance.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1594250515 Kim Brightman

      When I saw the trailer, I initially thought it WAS Bomer. I went on to think…WHO is THAT?? He is delish and dreamy. TLo on one arm and me on the other.
