Henry Cavill is kinda the hottest thing right now!
We mean that his celeb status is blowing up and he's also super hot!
But would you believe that he used to be a restaurant host at a tapas place in West Hollywood who would occasionally walk the dog of one appreciative patron?
Giana Mucci would often walk her rescue dog Buddy in the area back in 2005 and would regularly stop and chat with "Hot Henry." Love the nickname!
"I used to walk my rescued malamute, Buddy, by the new neighborhood tapas restaurant in West Hollywood, California, each night.
Buddy immediately took to Henry. And I must admit, so did I, almost immediately giving him the moniker "Hot Henry." He was, without a doubt, the most handsome person I'd ever seen in real life and also, quite possibly, the nicest. The British accent didn't hurt either.
I knew Henry was an actor, but when you live in the Los Angeles area — especially in West Hollywood — about 90 percent of the people you meet are "actors." One day I naively offered to help him get an agent. He graciously declined, saying he was in good hands with CAA (Creative Artist Agency — essentially the Rolls-Royce of acting agencies). This was the first time I wondered to myself, who is this guy?"
So funny! It's ahmayzing how sometimes you never know who someone is, or who they're going to be!!
Henry was so into Buddy that he even offered to walk the dog, and Giana took him up on the offer.
Until one time, she called him to ask if he could walk her dog… but he didn't call back for a while.
Then she got a voicemail from Henry saying he was sorry that he never called back because he was overseas auditioning for James Bond!!
That's when Giana started to put the pieces together and realized Henry was special!!
Cut to years later, Henry was doing interviews after starring in the movie Immortals and Giana got to interview him. She said:
"I got to see Henry about a year and a half ago at a press event for the fantasy drama "Immortals," in which he starred. I was among the last of the journalists to interview him. He now had much darker hair and had put on an insane amount of muscle and, truthfully, looked exhausted. I did not know how this would go. He immediately recognized me, hugged me and asked me about Buddy. Despite all that had changed in his life, he was still the same Henry — as humble and thoughtful as ever. It was very surreal to see him that day. Part of me just wanted to chat with him about old times, and the other side of me was keenly aware of the team of press relations and studio execs waiting to usher him to the next interview. Before Henry left to do more press, he looked down, and said quietly, "I miss Buddy." My heart melted. He was a movie star now, yet he genuinely missed my loving dog.
I realize that I only shared a brief moment of time with Henry, but he will always be the sweet, kindhearted, ridiculously handsome guy who was so genuinely compassionate toward my best friend and me. I can say firsthand that Henry Cavill, aka the Man of Steel, is as beautiful on the inside as he is on the outside. He has always been super — and now finally the world gets to see it.
Congratulations, Henry, on all of your success. No one deserves it more."
Wow!! That's absolutely incredible!!
He's a genuine person, on his way to A-lister stardom! We love him even more now!!
Also, we can totally understand his love for Buddy, that dog is adorbz!!!
