Smile For The Camera: Selfie Time With Henry's Durrell Family!


Just look at Henry's gorilla family, making him proud with their selfie skills!

We think they might have picked up some tips from Superman, when he became Durrell Wildlife's ambassador and visited them at the Jersey park in August. That is except Badongo, who you can see pouting in the background (don't let him fool you, he's a real sweetheart).

Henry talking to the press during his visit to Durrell Wildlife in August of 2014. 

The cute selfies are part of a project by American students Eloise Sherrid and Zoe Lohmann, to highlight Durrell's conservation work. Cameras were set up in different enclosures throughout the park, and here is some of the awesome stuff that was captured (the best part at about 1:07).

Don't miss the rest of the encounters and pictures over at The Daily Mail. Henry shares a special bond with the gorillas at the park, and posts updates on cavillconservation.com. While there, you can adopt a member of Henry's gorilla family, and learn more on how he's helping Durrell save animals from extinction. Thanks for your support, everyone!

  1. How cute is that? I've never seen a gorilla do a selfie before. I'm sure Henry enjoyed his visit with those amazing animals.

    2. Ok clam down on the whole Spartacus vibe, he's not the God Henry" I think that's the error you guys commit when you put him on that impossible pedestal, you forget he is a human being and not perfect. I think the best part of Henry is that he's genuinely a nice guy, who is honest and generous, kind and you forget about all of that when he does something You don't agree with and the finger pointing starts and judgment even insults which is disrespectful and really crossing the line. So forget about him being a "Leader" and "A Gift to Us" and praise him for being an amazing actor, person, who is generous, kind and great with his fans, which alot of celebrities are not. Those are his wonderful quality's that are going to keep him around and loved for a very long time.

    3. Absolutely true M. We forget he has feelings and become overly obsessive with him to a fault sometimes. Very true on the crossing the line part, some People go to far, when the name calling and insults start, you are going to far. I have mentioned this before, he is a grown man and deserves respect -at all times, not only when he is doing what we like. His wonderful work in film and his wonderful good works with his charity's Durell, Royal Marines are what matters, Henry just being a good person, that's what counts.

    5. Henry's human? Just kidding lol..i agree M. And River. Henry is very good at what he does but we mustn't forget he is just like us, wants to be happy, healthy and loved. Success is great but it's simple things in life that we can't put a price on, like the Gorilla selfie...priceless! How cute is that!

    7. GOD IS: The Creator and Ruler of the Universe...
      A LEADER: Is about making others Better as a Result of your Presence.. And making sure that your impact inspires others to Do for a great cause And make sure it Lasts in your Absence for the Greater Cause...
      And True Character is: The Ability "EARNED" to Say and Do the right Thing...And... Judging People doesn't Define who they are... IT Defines who "YOU ARE"...
      AND M, REED BEFORE YOU THINK!! & THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK !!...
      ..."LESS IS ALWAYS MORE"...!!! J.O

    8. That's what I meant JO, so quit the drama, drama queen. Speaking of REED" it's"READ" so check your spelling, maybe you need to READ a bit more. Less is more so quit the whole Henry is the holy grail crap!!!! So relax your face it's not that serious. Get a clue will you! Why don't you READ what you are writing, I bet it will sound ridiculous to you, go ahead READ it out loud. Notice I put the word READ in caps so you remember how to spell it!!
      MMMMMM.....

      Delete
    9. Ok so let's calm down. We don't need a definition on who GOD is or what a leader is. And being rude and condescending will not help either because you just fueled the reaction you received from M. What we are talking about is not making Henry untouchable, perfect because he is not and we take away his humanity and become overly obsessed with him to a fault. Then what happens? He does or says something we don't like and we do what? Insult him, threaten him, crazy stuff like he belongs to us and make him a thing not a person. That's all. Your reaction is exactly what M. Is talking about. We all can disagree without insults, it is what makes a conversation interesting. M. Can be a bit more sensitive. And if not, then to each is own. Just remember the love, it's about Henry's good works not about us.
      Peace people

    12. You are absolutely right River, the tit for tat is unnecessary and unwanted. I should not feed into the nonsense. It's about good conversation and supporting Henry in a non-hostile environment! So ok I'm good now.
      Peace out!
      Oh thanks jai appreciated..

    14. No M, I don't think Anyone will ever know what you meant!!!
      You're Obviously an Angry Demeaning Lady!! You seem like a person who would waste a good deed & a Great Cause for a moment of "YOU" no matter what..!!! You turned a Positive & a Great Cause into an Empty Pointless Obsession!!! & actually attract some people who would rally along!!!
      Keep in mind that we're all here for the same reason!! To praise Henry Cavill for the man he is & recognize how much talent and humane he has..
      My apologies to Henry Cavill, HCN, and Durrel for the unnecessary comments on my behalf which I tried to steer away...it was never my intentions or action at all...
      Out of respect to you'all and my self I will walk away!! There comes a time when you realize that turning the page is the best feeling in the world, cause!! There is so much more in life than a page you were stuck on..!!!
      And M, There is obviously a time difference between us!! In Mind, Body, and Spirit!! I am a Girl, and only in my twenties & I thank God and the universe for every thing yet to learn...
      You see where I come from!! An insult from a minor "mind" doesn't count and the best defense is not to take offense.. to say the least I'll never know which part of my small comment ticked you off !!!
      I am sorry that I wasn't going at the same rate you were at, it didn't surprise me that the word "Reed" "Typo" what caught your attention!! Let me know if you need me to spell it in many different languages too...
      There is no need for name calling, this is not the place nor time to do so..
      In addition, JO is not my name.. it's my initials! There M!! I said it. You see words are free, it's how you use them that may cause you !! No body is perfect..And if you're wrong own up to what you didn't do right...that's how we learn and earn respect in return.. & ultimately what makes us humans after all !! & forget it enough to get over it and remember enough so it doesn't happen again.
      I never faltered.. but I also will never waste words on pointless people who deserves my silence...!!!
      My best of wishes to Henry Cavill, HCN, And most of all Durrel... & keep up the good work for the "Greater Cause".... ������ J.O

  4. How cute is that selfie? I'm so glad he continues his work and support for Durell. Henry truly is an inspiration to us as human beings, to do more as well as give more. Not just to live for ourselves but to give a little back to help others. It just shows his mind is not only about his career and himself, he's thinking about helping and giving back in someway. Bravo to Henry for being generous and selfless!

    I should jump in and say the truth & never hold my peace in this case...
    To me this whole thing was like a Dejavu of Man of Steel movie!!! Except this one was in real life...
    It was the part when Clark Kent was at the bar!!! When that guy tried to push him, threw beer at his face, and an empty can while he was walking away... And as a result Kibooosh!!!
    People, you know what this means!!! There is another alien amongst us. lol.
    I come in peace <3 I just love my Super Hero's :)
    Another word, many of us are capable of throwing insults, but not many who are capable of ending it & walking away...What else can she do???

And now if other people can see through you, you react??You were the ones who shifted the whole subject and started the attacks, name calling etc... from what I read...I believe that you said let's make the conversation more interesting, and not making Henry untouchable...& calling him actor..!!!
    First of all I prefer calling him an artist and human being with a great deal of Character!!!
    No one likes to be touchable or talked about in that matter, including Henry... if you have something positive to say, say it if not then keep it to your self...
    This is a good site, and you're going completely against the whole concept.
    I can see clearly where she is coming from!!!

Yes we did take part of the conversation and all said what we thought because we have the right too, we can all disagree there's nothing wrong with that, it's when we get all personal about it and start losing it because we just don't like the comment. Don't take it so personal, we all see him in different ways it does not mean that it's bad. Calm the down, it's not that serious.

  16. There's someone here who is a troublemaker/stalker/hacker who likes to tear down Henry and others while trying to appear as if they are a supportive fan--not just on this site, but on others. It's purely destructive hiding digs at innocent people while coming in here using several different usernames just to argue and further harass others. It is not polite or considerate discussion. It is intentional bullying behavior that is not acceptable. Furthermore, this person tries to imitate the way others write in other posts and places in order to confuse people who read the comments as to who wrote what.

    The only thing people need to write on these pages is support and love...plain and simple...for Henry and the people he's doing projects with & HCN. And that's it. It's the only thing I have posted on this page...and I hope people can show other fans like River and some of the other nice commentators the kindness and consideration that has been shown by them if choosing to respond to them. If there is a recommendation for an improvement with something, it can be done respectfully with consideration.

    With the exception of this particular post, the only thing I posted above and other pages here at HCN has been posts saying things like: "HENRY....Love the pics. Love You <3 <3 <3 Thank you, ya'll & HCN (y) :) <3 " Very short and respectful to Henry, his fans & HCN. But there is someone trying to give the impression that I am writing some of the other posts that are just terrible on this page by playing games. It is not appreciated.

    I don't want any confusion as to which posts I write (I did not write anything above that was argumentative or that was signed with any nics/letters), but to avoid confusion, I will from now on sign my comments at HCN: KB10 Thanks once again, Everyone showing support for Henry & HCN (y) :) <3

    1. Wat is going on here? I am completely and utterly shocked to what extent this whole thing was taken to!
      This is my first time after my last encounter, my third comment was my last, one small comment was always the max for me & I never even reply!! Plus this site is the only site I go on, when ever I get the chance & have the time...
      Seeing # 5o+ comments! was the most frightening thing I ever seen in my life. I hesitated to click on it, I had a feeling that it wasn't over & finished as I hoped for... and the most sad part that it was under a noble cause the "gorilla photo"...which was the reason that drove me to my last ✌ comment.
      To say the least, I scrawled down seeing and not reading most of the comments, i was at ahh & lost of words for the extent that was taken just to heart, shake and break a decent human beings life, It was beyond belief...It did gave me a heart attack at this point!
      But from what it looks like! What can anyone in their right mind, say or do to something unpredictable and this massive!
      I guess there is no way around it no matter what.
      In this case right or wrong is not going change the outcome...
      I can say on my defense, I did not write anything beyond my third & last comment, and that's me facing the facts at hand, it is not fixable which I must admit & leaves me defenseless. Which makes me a must can take it person situation :( moreover the very same reason that made me guilty in the first place, "try to defend my self"!
      For what is worth it was never my intention to belittle anyone & my deepest apologies to who ever received it that way..
      It was the only right thing to do at that moment, after what I received!!
      If it wasn't wrong to me it didn't make right, or rallied for that matter, which I'll never ask for...
      I wouldn't put it all out there if I was "hiding", which I have no reason for. I am a good person & do come from a good and strong family/place & I've been called "small mind" from "family" many times, for saying or doing something out of place..(unintentional).
      Further more, you are more than welcome to look at my previous comments and decide for yourselves! You see the way I am feeling at this point with zero intention of insult "promis"!!! Is that it doesn't take anything to join a group but it does take everything to stand alone!
      For what its worth, my apologies to you'all for what ever my last comment caused, also I do understand where you stand! From your last comment, what a massive traffic and out of place it was...
      I believe that some of you are appose of deleting comments. but I would really appreciated if you take down all of my four comments , including this one under J.O.
      At this stage! I truly want to put all of it behind me!!!
      If there is any thing I can say at point!! for what ever life throws at you is...
      .... You live, watch out, and learn...
      My best of luck to everyone...

  17. Thank You, It means a lot!
    I guess I hesitated to look back again! Conceding the last time.. also being lost & rapidly typing didn't help much with my spilling, Sorry..
    It took a lot from me, Skipping from my last comment to say my "Words".And compress my confusion to know how to react...
    Finally, we can go back to the original "small comments"! but I guess, my last two comments will retire me for a looong while. Lol.
    My best of Wishes & Support to all, and keep up the good work for the Greater Cause...
