Let's start with the MUST READ interviews..

BUT FIRST: Watch Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill make the phonebook sound sexy (nothing is topping this..) laughing for years.


In his interview with The Guardian, Henry opens up about his insecurities and online bullies. It's definitely an interview you'll want to check out. READ IT NOW.

Henry's interview with Playboy is just as revealing. He talks relationships and settling down. READ IT NOW.

In this interview Henry talks Cavill Conservation, missing his bed, his love for Ireland.

This exclusive with the Irish Times is a really great read. Henry covers A LOT including internet trolls, new home in London, Ben Affleck's humor on the Batman v Superman set, sweet story from his school days.

Henry also talked to Spain's RTVE  about the differences between Solo and Illya. WATCH (at about :53). He also chatted with IGN Spain (cute moment alert at about 1:30 where he mentions Superman and the Lone Ranger) WATCH. The interviews are dubbed, but you can still hear what they are saying. Gracias, Cristina! for sending us the links.

Studio videos:

Here is another featurette that is a must watch/read.

Cool caps from the video..

Guy mentions working with Henry at the end..

We'll update the post as we get more interviews!


  1. Awesome interviews...I.Love.Henry. <3 <3

  2. Regarding the "not having been to Texas" comment... In his defense, the interviewer first asked if he'd been to Houston, Tx...I think Henry thought he was waiting for his answer to that, in particular, but it came out "Texas" in the interviewer's follow-up... (Also El Paso doesn't really feel like Texas at all to me. Having lived in Texas twice now, El Paso is what I refer to as "Middle Mexico" haha. Been to both the 'old' and New Mexico...yeah, El Paso is "Middle Mexico".)

    Also, I feel like I should have been paying $2.99 a minute to watch that phone book interview...hahaha.

    Great interviews- Nice to see some new material thrown at the guys besides the usual "blah, blah, blah". It has to be challenging to sound original in each one.

    1. Fine! - suppose that could have been it :p

  3. Translation for Twitter message by Sky Cinema HD 11:04 AM - 16 Aug 2015 by Rebecca
    We met the protagonists of Operation UNCLE, in cinemas from September 2. Surprise: they speak Italian!

    1. I've had a listen to the interview when Henry and the reporter speak Italian.
      Henry said that he lived in Monterotondo, a town near Rome, for about four months, five years ago. He has also learnt to say "would you like to come out for dinner?" and "beauty of mine".
      Hope I got it right.
