Henry Cavill was a “fat kid.”

By Fabio Crispim

The Man of Steel actor claims he had “rolls of fat” and “tits.”

In an interview with Men’s Fitness, the hunky actor Henry Cavill speaks about his struggles with childhood obesity and the bullying that followed him during his time at a British boarding school.

“They used to call me Fat Cavill. I was a prime target for them. I actually had rolls of fat on me. One guy told me I had tits. I was a big eater, and I still love food.”

“I’m still an indulger, in alcohol, in food, in all things I enjoy in life. I’ve never been able to do things in half measures. That’s probably why I was a fat kid.”

Cavill also said that he was called “lemon” and “a guy who gets nowhere with girls.”

With that in mind, let’s celebrate Cavill’s transformation into muscled hunk.
