Money can be exchanged for goods and services, goddamn it, and Henry Cavill isn’t afraid to admit it. “I’m slightly wary of saying this, because it can be frowned upon, certainly by members of my community and people outside my community … but I’m not just doing this for the art,” the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star admitted to Man of the World magazine. “The money’s fantastic and that’s something which I deem — and again, it is frowned upon — very important.” Money is fantastic and very important, and for some reason, no one ever talks about it publicly. Why is that? “Spending money on my friends, buying dinner for everyone, drinks for everyone, it’s a nice place to be, and I like people to feel cared for,” Cavill said, continuing to elaborate on the concept “money is good.” Explained the actor, “People will be calling me a c–k as they’re reading this, but travel’s great as long as you’re going first class. I mean, traveling to New Zealand in economy, it sucks. Especially if you’re over six feet. But first class? I’m not going to ever pretend to be coy about that. I love it.” No word from Cavill on how money stacks up against sex and power, but still. A lot to think about here.
