Henry Cavill’s recent comments on the Me Too movement were met with significant backlash after the actor suggested that by going up to talk to a woman, he would risk being “called a rapist or something.”

The “Man of Steel” star spoke with GQ Australia and, after parsing through his film career and how he deals with the paparazzi, he was asked about what he’s learned from the Me Too movement.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to not be around the kind of people who behave that way,” he said.

“To my memory there’s been no moments where I look back and think, ‘Ooh, OK, maybe someone shouldn’t have gone through that,’” he said. “I know there have been situations with people I’ve worked with being perhaps overfamiliar with some of the actresses. But, I’ve always walked up to them and said, ‘Hey, are you all right? That’s creepy.’”

The interviewer pressed on and asked the actor if the movement has made him reflect on his own actions, to which he said he’s “never been like that.” He went a step further to attempt to unpack more about the movement, saying that “any human being alive today, if someone casts too harsh a light on anything, you could be like, ‘Well, OK, yeah, when you say it like that, maybe.’”

“But it’s such a delicate and careful thing to say because there’s flirting, which, for example, in a social environment is in context ― and is acceptable. And that has been done to me as well, in return,” he said.

Men’s behavior “has to change,” Cavill said, but “it’s important to also retain the good things, which were a quality of the past, and get rid of the bad things.”

Waxing poetic on men chasing women, Cavill said, “There’s a traditional approach to that, which is nice. I think a woman should be wooed and chased, but maybe I’m old-fashioned for thinking that.”

Sarah Hanson-Young a "nasty piece of work" Hanson says

  Sarah Hanson-Young a Sarah Hanson-Young is getting no sympathy from her arch enemy Pauline Hanson over the David Leyonhjelm stoush. While the One Nation leader said Mr Leyonhjelm's comment that Hanson-Young should "stop shagging men", was "unacceptable", she's refused to defend her.Campaigning for the Longman by-election, in south-east Queensland, Ms Hanson said didn't want to get involved in the drama, saying she doesn't support either of her Senate colleagues.But she couldn't resist a swing."People think butter wouldn't melt in Sarah Hanson-Young's mouth," she said. "That's incorrect.

“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,’” he said.

“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,’” Cavill said. “But it’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? Now? Now you really can’t pursue someone further than, ‘No.’ It’s like, ‘OK, cool.’ But then there’s the, ‘Oh, why’d you give up?’ And it’s like, ‘Well, because I didn’t want to go to jail?’”

This part of the interview sparked a widespread response on Twitter:

As evidenced by the responses, while many took issue with what was said, others argued that they understood his vantage point and didn’t think he was a “bad guy.”

Representatives for Cavill did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.
