Henry Cavill Was Considered Too Fat To Play James Bond?

Henry Cavill is no stranger to spy films, starring in both “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” and “Mission: Impossible- Fallout“, yet there is one spy series that Cavill has yet to be in. The grandaddy of all spy films… James Bond.

In an interview with CinemaBlend, Cavill spoke about trying out for the character of James Bond back when “Casino Royale” was in production. He spoke about how the director of the film, Martin Campbell, brought up the topic of his weight.

I probably could have prepared better. I remember the director, Martin Campbell, saying, ‘Looking a little chubby there, Henry.’ I didn’t know how to train or diet. And I’m glad Martin said something, because I respond well to truth. It helps me get better.”

To think that the man who played Superman was once called out on a weight problem. Of course Cavill is most likely in the best shape of his life now. Appearing in Men’s Health magazines and also starring in the soon to be released Netflix series “The Witcher“, which will be debuting on December 20th, 2019.
