Henry Cavill at the “Man of Steel” Japan Premiere

Posted on August 21, 2013

Wow. He’s still doing the poledance for this thing. How exhausting is that? Then again: money. Lots of it. Suddenly our tears of sympathy have dried up.


Henry Cavill attends the “Man of Steel” Japan premiere at Roppongi Hills in Tokyo, Japan.

He looks adorable, though. The jacket is, as always with him, too tight. At this point, we’re thinking it’s a conscious choice to make him look big and bulky in a Clark Kent kind of way. But we are LOVING the pink shirt and tie. Nicely done, Henry. And thank you for shaving.

Now let’s talk about that pinky ring, son …

    Apparently his stylists have the audacity not to read this blog. Because that suit is still wrongly shaped for him. He needs to get out of the three piece and box shaped suits.

  • netdivaweb

    Until I see him shopping for random stuff at the supermarket again, I will not be impressed.

  • gabbilevy

    hiiiiiiiii Henry.

    Suit looks smashing. Pinkie ring is a-OK if he’s like… a member of the peerage. Is he a noble? That’d be cool.

  • Glam Dixie

    Man, he really does look like the perfect Clark Kent here. Adorable.

    • Nicholas

      Guy is a total dork in the best way possible. Great to see someone who wears it on his sleeve.

  • Shawn EH

    If only he’d lose the vests.

  • wisenhar

    All I can see is game show host. Maybe it’s the mic…?

    • Danielle

      It’s the hair.

    • MilaXX

      Richard Dawson is who I see.

    • nomoreprinces

      Well, he is in Japan so I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they made him do some sort of wacky game show host thing. Hence the uncomfortable but amused and disturbed faces.

  • kimmeister

    He looks like he’s stifling a laugh in almost all of these shots.

  • Pinky ring? Oh honey no.

  • Hmmmm, something is not working here. Maybe it’s the hair, or the shiny, uncomfortable, try hard of it all, but nothing about this is warming my biscuit.

  • thecitysleeps

    He is the type of guy that would look beautiful even if he did not have the body he has just because his face is fucking beautiful. Having said that, oh yeah he’s wearing wrong suits. Love the colours though.

  • MilaXX

    Pinky ring is a bit of a needle scratch, no? Makes him look like Richard Dawson during the Family feud days.

    • bigfan

      Google Joe Pesci Pinkie Ring SNL sketch. You’ll never look at one the same way again.

  • AnnaleighBelle

    I think he benefits from a little facial hair.

  • formerlyAnon

    God bless. The fact that he looks made up for the stage to me, in these, pulls all focus. It’s off-putting. (No doubt because he’s made up to be looked at from a distance and these are not distance shots, still, it’s not often that noticeable to me.)

  • BookManFilm

    He looks like a slightly effiminate wedding planner making a last minute speech.

  • why does he always look like a big adorable puppy?!? i just can’t…can’t.
    maybe the ring is a sentimental thing? like his mom’s or something. wouldn’t that just add to the adorableness?

    • Jacob Bowen

      I was JUST going to say that about the pinkie ring! I have my grandfathers and I wear it occasionally.

  • filmcricket

    Wow he looks a lot younger than he has on previous jaunts. Love the pink shirt.

  • Nicholas

    Now let’s talk about that pinky ring, son …

    In brightest day, in brighest night, no fashion blunder shall escape your sight.

  • Just Me

    Oh Henry, you break my heart. Yes, the shirt and tie are a vast, vast improvement. And yes, the hair with the wayward curl is freaking adorable. But, why my love, are you making that face? Just show us the teeth and it is all good. And seriously, why are you wearing a vest? You are a big and tall man, honey. The vest is not required. However, if we could have a picture taken of you in profile smiling while leaning over and holding the face of an adorable French bulldog, all will be forgiven….we will have a perfect pair for our collection.

  • VictoriaDiNardo

    When I see a pinky ring I just assume the guy REEKS of cologne.

    • pinkyring

      My husband wears a pinky ring. He got as part of his engineer degree in Canada. It is suppose to remind them of their obligation to the public while they work (I guess Canada started doing thin in the 1920’s after some horrible bridge collapse). So maybe Henry is a secret Canadian engineer 😉

      • eandh99

        My dad has one of those rings too – it’s made out of the iron from the bridge that fell down, and yeah, it’s a reminder not to screw up or people get killed. Henry’s ring, however, looks like he outgrew his class ring from Hogwarts and had to put it on his pinky.

        • Jeanine Brady

          Absolutely right, but that would be real life, prestigious Stowe School. Used to wear my NYU gear but got so many snide “she didn’t really go there” remarks, stopped wearing, tired of the hate. Can’t people realize Henry is proud of his school and let him be.

    • Catiline

      When I see a pinky ring, I think of the “Joe Pesci tries on pinky rings” sketch on Saturday Night Live from waaaaaaay back in the day.

  • kirkyo

    Suddenly, he looks amazing to me. I think the other poledance suits were making him look too broad-shouldered and boxy. This is both adorable and hot.

    Also, perfect cuff length.

  • conniemd

    Wow pink shirt and tie with blue suit. Begone black and gray!!! The coloring fits him and nobody would consider Superman sissy for wearing pink. He looks good and a breath of fresh air.

  • AnaRoW

    My very first thought was that he looks so adorable. I’m glad to be in agreement with the majority for a change.

  • ringthing

    I’m sure I’m in the minority, but it’s refreshing to see a handsome man without facial hair.

  • London_to_Lille

    That smile. Love the touch of pink. The ring looks like a family ring that he’d be given on his 21st birthday.

  • Anniebet

    So cute. Dunno that a male celeb wants to be thought of as “cute”. But damn, he’s cute, isn’t he?

  • joanna dash

    He’s kind of morphing into Matt Bomer. Neither one do a thing for me for some reason.

  • putacorkinit

    He doesn’t look quite as confident now that it wasn’t a smash hit.

    • Ariadne

      Are you talking about Man of Steel?Because MOS was quite the hit and the next one os already undet produxtion.WB said that if MOS would be a huge enough success then thr MOS franchise would introduce the DC character leading to a Justice League movied…and we are getting Batman in the MOS sequel.So iwould consider MOS a bog hit because now WB trusts the franchise to carry the DC universe on its shoulders.And we are talking about billions upon billions of dollars.

  • Ariadne

    I think that Papa Cavill gave one family crest to each of the Cavill boys.

  • LaSylphide

    In pictures 1, 2, 3 and 5, he looks like he’s in a breath-holding contest. #4 he looks cute. Love the whole look. Just hope he does pass out from asphyxiation.

  • Imasewsure

    He looks dorky but I do love the pink shirt and the non-boring tie.

    • Mrs. Julien

      I am constantly amazed that someone that gorgeous can look dorky. It’s really endearing.

  • Mrs. Julien

    The pinky ring is necessary to perpetuate the illusion that he walked out of a historical romance novel because that is exactly what he looks like. I can even tell you which one, should you need to be in the know.

  • lubilu

    Upper class British men often wear a signet ring on their little fingers showing their family’s coat of arms. Prince Charles wears one all the time.

    • I know. It still looks tacky.

      • lubilu

        To Americans maybe. For the English it’s about as tacky as a plain gold wedding band. Henry C basically wears the uniform of the upper class British male who’s played too much rugby for all his public appearances,

  • Sandra Oh

    I don’t care what he’s wearing. I only wish he was naked!!!!! LOL. So dreamy.

  • Taylor

    He look SO MUCH like Shooter McGavin here that I had to go look if he was related to that actor.

  • Not applicable

    what suit is that? Hugo Boss?

  • lrhg

    I have never noticed it before but he looks a lot like Matt Bomer in pictures 2 and 3. They should play brothers! (And then the screen would melt.)

  • WendyD

    Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto were still poledancing for Star Trek into Darkness in Japan last week…

  • prettybigkitty

    And the faces. . . .he looks a little drunk.

  • Jessica O’Connell

    Am I alone in actually preferring him scruffy a la The Tudors? He was HOT in that. I don’t know if it’s the badly fitting suit or the hair or the shave but, he’s just not doing it for me in the way he used to.

    Now off to Youtube to watch a few scenes of him in The Tudors to help me through this hellish Monday.

  • Danielle West

    I prefer him in his costumes from the Tudors.
