Henry Cavill’s "back up plan" was to be a soldier.
The ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ star admits he would have joined the British Armed Forces if acting hadn’t worked for him.
He told Men’s Fitness magazine: "Thankfully at this stage I’ve got my foot in the door enough that if someone tried to slam it shut, I could probably squeeze a little bit and keep the door open.
"As far as a full back-up plan, it was the British Armed Forces. But being 33 years old I think I’m too old to join now."
Meanwhile, the 33-year-old actor previously admitted he considered quitting acting to join the army until he got a screen test for the role of James Bond.
He shared: "There were plenty of times I thought it wouldn’t happen. At one stage I was like, ‘If this next movie doesn’t do well then I’m out, I’m going to join the Armed Forces’.
"Then I got the screen test for Bond and thought, my name is out there now, so maybe I should stick around. And I did."
And Henry recently revealed he acts because "the money is fantastic".
He said: "I’m slightly wary of saying this, because it can be frowned upon, certainly by members of my community and people outside my community … but I’m not just doing this for the art. The money’s fantastic and that’s something which I deem – and again, it is frowned upon – very important.
"You’ve got to enjoy life! I mean, you’ve got to. When I’m making money I’m spending it on nice stuff, whether that be lavish holidays for me and my friends or just seeing something and going in a shop and saying, ‘Yeah, I want that for the house,’ and buying it. Spending money on my friends, buying dinner for everyone, drinks for everyone, it’s a nice place to be, and I like people to feel cared for."
