’50 Shades of Grey’ Movie Cast: Henry Cavill Talks About Playing Christian Grey, Still Remains a Top Contender (VIDEO)
"Fifty Shades of Grey" fans should be delighted by a recent interview given by fan-favorite Henry Cavill. In the interview he is asked whether or not he feels playing in a movie like "Fifty Shades of Grey" would be something he was interested since the character would be drastically different than Superman. The "Man of Steel" actor didn't exactly say yes but definitely hinted that playing Christian Grey would not be a problem for him.
"As an actor I don't think it should stop me from doing roles which may be great stories," Cavill said in the interview. "I'm very much a storyteller, I enjoy telling stories and if there is a wonderful story to tell than I don't think having played the role of Superman will necessarily stop me from telling that story. The chances are it will very much be a different vehicle than what Superman is, so it won't damage any of that character...because they'll see two very different things on screen."
This isn't the first time Cavill has spoken about the movie. Back in May he discussed during a press conference saying that at the time he was never approached about doing the movie.
"Put it this way, I've not read a script, spoken to a producer or a director," he said in the May press conference the International Business Times reports. "Not exactly chaste writing is it. I've always preferred the implied sex scene anyway, because having it spelled out always seems a bit tacky. Sex is so readily available to us in every form of media now, so it's no longer that exciting on screen."
The 30-year-old British came under a lot of fire from "Fifty Shades" fans for that comment but from his recent interview it seems he may have had a change of heart about the role. Regardless of how he feels about the movie, Cavill has remained a top contender to play Christian Grey along with Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer.
