Did I ever tell you about the time I met the Man of Steel? Years before I would be deemed replaceable, I thought I recognized this guy. Thing is, I had just finished #TheTudors - and this guy looked an awful lot like one of the actors on the show. “Why would he be *here*?” I thought to myself. Fuck it. I’ll ask him. Someone is singing “Piano Man”, so I know I got plenty of time to strike up a conversation. “Hey, excuse me but, do you bleed?” Just kidding. “Hey, I don’t mean to bother you, but - ever get told you look like Henry Cavill?” He T H I N K S. “Eh, sometimes. Sometimes my parents call me that, sometimes even my friends.” Damn. Wish I’d wrote that line. Of course it takes a while for his words to reach me, “Oh! Wow. Well, can I buy you a drink?” I offered him a shot at the mic, but he politely declined both. Thankfully, he granted me a photo. In fact, he hung out the whole night (even after the lights came on), and because I didn’t actually have a smartphone back then - no joke - my buddy ended up taking this pic. He would take so long in doing so, that we had our arms around each other for a good while. “I’m going to pick you up.” Whispered SUPERMAN. Sure enough, he swooped me up. Cradled me like Lois Lane falling off a building. Then he starts c u r l i n g me. “It’s like holding a baby.” Anyway, yeah. He *is* made of steel, you’re welcome. I fucked up by not wearing a #Batman hat like I NORMALLY did, but I like to think I still made the right choice. It *does* have a “B” on it. Pfft. Of course someone is singing #DontStopBelieving. 💪🏻👶🏻🇺🇸 #BvS #tbt
This is how legendary stories are born. Thanks Trevor!
Here you go, Twitter. Here’s the crappy photos my friend took with his potato, of when Superman picked me up. @HenryCavillNews pic.twitter.com/rMzMoLptxF— Trevor Wright (@TeeCDub) May 1, 2020
