Henry Cavill 'didn't know' Stephenie Meyer wanted him in Twilight

When Summit Entertainment had optioned the rights to the Twilight author’s work for film adaptation in 2007 she wrote an update saying she was disappointed that the Man Of Steel star was too old to play vampiric romantic interest Edward Cullen in the movie. “The most disappointing thing for me is losing my perfect Edward. Henry Cavill is now 24 years old. Let us have a moment of quiet in which to mourn.” Henry reacted to Stephenie’s words on a recent episode of the Happy Sad Confused podcast.
