Henry Cavill is motivated by money

Henry Cavill Henry Cavill, 29, is motivated to be a successful movie star by money. The British actor - who shot to fame in 2001 following his star performance in Laguna - loves his profession but is happy to admit the massive pay checks are very appealing and he insists other stars who play down the importance of the financial rewards are "lying." Speaking in the new UK issue of GQ, he said: "God, all those people who say, 'Oh no, the money doesn't matter.' Yeah, right. They're either mad, or they're lying. I mean, come on. 'Oh no, don't pay me anything, it's for the arts.' I'm sorry, no. Pay me the money. I'm not doing it for charity. I'm not a non-profit organization. Plus it's expensive flying back and forward to LA. You need a job that pays money." Henry - who can be soon be seen playing Superman in new superhero movie Man of Steel - admits his main ambition in Hollywood is to be the go to guy who can guarantee box office success. He explained: "I want to be one of those names that producers want to hire because you put bums on seats."

    “Bums” is no longer acceptable in an enlightened society; the proper term is “financially challenged.”

    Seems kinda vain to me. I hope he doesn’t come across that way as Clark Kent/Superman, that’s one thing the character isn’t.

    when he says, “bums”, he means buttocks.
