#5. Henry Cavill

Being the star of 'Man Of Steel', puts Henry Cavill on our list of top successful and voted to be one of the handsome actors of the age. His dark hair, chiseled jaw and piercing blue eyes he landed the role of Clark Kent/Superman and has a lot of fans around the world.

Henry Cavill was born in May1983, on Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands, a British crown dependency. He attended Stowe boarding school, where he developed a love for acting, performing in several productions. His first acting experience came in school plays, and his first role on camera was as the lead in a minor movie called Laguna. Landing the role of Superman took a lot of work for Henry. He underwent 2 months of hardcore training with Gym Jones each sessions lasting 2 and a half hours. In order to properly portray Superman, Henry Cavill needed to look both big and strong. And the best way to accomplish this is by lifting in both low, mid, and high rep ranges. When most guys train, they typically either train really really heavy or really really light. Henry ate up to 5000 calories per day in order to bulk up for Superman. I don’t know if this number is over exaggerated but the majority of people will never need 5000 calories per day, even if your goal is to gain weight.

Although the actor might have a busy life he still puts room in for fun. Henry likes to go out to clubs and bars. His favorite spot is the Wellington Club in London. Henry is a huge fan of rugby and He enjoys watching the History Channel and National Geographic and shows like Dexter and Battlestar Galactica. This handsome actor has never been married, Henry has had trouble holding down a relationship but he is currently dating Gina Carono.
