henry cavill before and after

Henry Cavill said he missed out on playing James Bond because a director told him he was too “chubby” for the role.
The “Casino Royale” audition required him to walk out with nothing but a towel on.
“I remember the director, Martin Campbell, saying, ‘Looking a little chubby there, Henry,'” Cavill said in an interview with Men’s Health.

But the “Man of Steel” star said his set-back was a wake-up call that he needed to change his diet and physical health.
“I didn’t know how to train or diet. And I’m glad Martin said something, because I respond well to truth. It helps me get better.”

Henry Cavill revealed he once auditioned for James Bond, but a director told him he was too “chubby” for the role.

“The Man of Steel” star said part of his audition process for “Casino Royale” involved walking out of a bathroom with nothing but a towel on.

“I remember the director, Martin Campbell, saying, ‘Looking a little chubby there, Henry,'” Cavill said in an interview with Men’s Health.

But acknowledging he had a poor diet at the time, Cavill, who said he was called “Fat Cavill” and was teased for his weight as a child, said the director’s dismissal was a wake-up that made him rethink his physical health.

“I didn’t know how to train or diet,” he told Men’s Health. “And I’m glad Martin said something, because I respond well to truth. It helps me get better.”

Prior to his James Bond audition, Cavil had parts in “Midsomer Murders” and 2002’s “The Count of Monte Cristo.” He was just 23 when he lost out to Daniel Craig as 007.

Cavill said he also missed out on major parts in “Twilight” and “Tristan + Isolde.”
