As with any pubic (sorry, public ~ genuine typo) figure, there are bound to be rumours that jump on the gay bandwagon and conjure up conspiracies as to why an actor could be gay. Henry Cavill is no exception, and simply searching Google for “henry cavill gay” will list reams of articles on Henry’s apparent gayness.
People believe what they want to believe, and it’s up to you, the reader, to believe what you choose. If you wish Henry Cavill to be gay then you’re welcome to your opinion. If you’re looking to base your opinion on more substantial information then you could take note of Henry’s relationship with show-jumper Ellen Whitaker which has been public knowledge since February 2011.
As yet there has been no substantial evidence that Henry Cavill is gay, unless you’re a person who believes anything they read on the internet. Anyone can use an ounce of imagination to conjure up a tale relating to any actor being homo-sexual, and it only takes one naïve soul to spread the unsubstantiated rumour.
This article takes a look at two of the rumours on the internet today, and leaves you to question their plausibility. The aim of this article is not to slur Henry, but to provoke rational thought with his fans. After all, Henry’s personal life is his own and should remain that way.
There have been a number of photographs of Henry Cavill with gay actor Corey Spears circulating the web. Allegedly, Corey posted said photos on Facebook, but (also allegedly) when Henry Cavill was queried about the photos they were removed without trace. Henry stated he was “not gay but had a number of gay friends“. This is understandable in the modern age and does not make a person gay, whether this is a factual quote or not.
On an alleged appearance with British gay chat show host Graham Norton, Norton asked if Henry preferred men or women. Cavill laughed and said he “wasn’t going to say if men were better in the sack than women.” I hasten to note that this alleged interview with Graham Norton can not be found on Youtube and there is no official record on the internet.
Don’t believe everything you read on the internet.
