Henry Cavill Apologises After Saying Me Too Movement Had Made 'Old-Fashioned' Dating 'Difficult'

Henry Cavill has issued an apology, after facing criticism over his claims that he’s finding dating “very difficult” in the wake of the Me Too movement.

In an interview with GQ Australia, the ‘Man Of Steel’ actor suggested he had a “traditional” and “old-fashioned” approach to wooing women, based on the idea of “a man chasing a woman”.

“I think a woman should be wooed and chased,” he added. “But maybe I’m old-fashioned for thinking that.”

Henry added: “It’s very difficult to do that if there are certain rules in place. Because then it’s like, ‘Well, I don’t want to go up and talk to her, because I’m going to be called a rapist or something’.

“So you’re like, ‘forget it, I’m going to call an ex-girlfriend instead, and then just go back to a relationship which never really worked’. But [that’s] way safer than casting myself into the fires of hell, because I’m someone in the public eye, and if I go and flirt with someone, then who knows what’s going to happen.”

We probably don’t need to tell you that his comments did not go down well on social media, with many pointing out the fairly obvious flaws in Henry’s logic:
