Please gird your loins and bridle your passions if/when breathing the same air as Henry Cavill, because he's so not here for you flirting with him.

The Superman star is currently dating 19-year-old Tara King, and apparently they're just constantly dealing with desperate, horny randoms throwing themselves at him.

"I've heard some things in my time, I have to say," Cavill recently told the Sunday Times (opens in new tab). "I don't mind it–not unless I'm with my girlfriend and someone is being complimentary to me in order to disrespect her. People who don't respect other people's feelings really get my goat." 

Quick life update: Henry Cavill uses the same terminology as your middle-aged father. Do with that information what you will. 

"I mean, if a girl shouts something like, 'Oi, love, fancy a shag?' to me as I walk past, I do sometimes wonder how she'd feel if a builder said that to her," he continued. "Although, of course, I wouldn't feel physically threatened, as she might." 

Valid point about sexism and objectification right there, but please, everyone, for the love of god stop asking Henry Cavill if he fancies a shag. It really gets his 🐐 . (Failed attempt to make that expression hip, sorry.)
