Henry Cavill is the talk of the town these days because of the whole Superman thing, and good for him. I know nothing about him or the film cos it’s not really my bag, but yay for attractive bros giving ladies nice things to look at… or something? (I’m trying!) This story isn’t really about Henry Cavill being super talented and super hot, though – no, it’s about James Franco crying about how Henry Cavill apparently doesn’t like him. I don’t know either, but let’s go with it.
From his personal blog (LOL) for Vice:
I was also at Leicester Square earlier this year for the premiere of my film Oz, when the red carpet was a yellow brick road, but the night I saw the new Superman, I arrived incognito: 1) because it wasn’t my film, and 2) because I don’t think Henry Cavill would have wanted to see me there. Not that we’re enemies. Years ago we worked on a film together called Tristan and Isolde. I played Tristan and he played my backstabbing sidekick. My hunch is that he didn’t like me very much. I don’t know this for certain, but I know that I wouldn’t have liked myself back then because I was a difficult young actor who took himself too seriously.
Huh. I kind of don’t really get James’ point of sharing this factoid, unless he was trying to make people uncomfortable or start some shit? I mean, whatever, Franco’s a free spirit, how dare I stifle that? The whole thing is insane so I recommend reading it. He’s so up his own asshole it’s hilarious (and yes, that picture is from the article).
Waiting for the Cavill response on this one.
