Henry Cavill, dubbed Hollywood’s Crush, has indeed established himself as a prominent figure over the years. With his charismatic performances, he has garnered a massive fandom. Not to mention, prominent names such as Kaley Cuoco and Gina Carano have at one point been known as Henry Cavill’s girlfriends. But it would surprise fans to know that despite his previous title as the World’s Sexiest Man and popularity, he once felt unwanted in a relationship.

While basking in the glory of his role as Superman, Henry Cavill shared a deeply personal detail about his love life where he was mistreated by his ex-girlfriend.

In 2016, Henry Cavill sat down with Elle to talk about his career and dating life. During the conversation, he was asked about the most painful thing that a woman had said to him. In his response, the actor recalled his former girlfriend, who once asked him to go away because she was meeting a friend. Henry Cavill revealed how he was supposed to be gone for one week, but his then-girlfriend asked him to stay away longer. “My head was pretty wrecked,” remarked the former Superman.

Cavill continued how he felt like “hitting a wall” seeing how things took the wrong turn in his relationship. That moment brought back his childhood trauma, making him feel as if he did something wrong. “It’s that feeling of hopelessness, I guess,” added the Enola Holmes star. Though for fans the actor has always been an iconic image of perfection, it is only natural that he too struggled with relationships like others.
