The 30-year-old (pictured here on the Man of Steel press tour with co-star Amy Adams) may have suffered his life and career setbacks, but nothing's ever tainted his happy, genuine outlook on life. While waiting tables trying to catch a break in Hollywood — before he landed a lead role in TV show The Tudors — he befriended female journalist Giana Mucci, whose dog took a particular liking to the actor. Henry formed a bond with the dog, Buddy, and took to walking him several times a week.
As his fame grew, Henry lost touch with Giana and Buddy — but seven years later she was assigned to interview him about a new fantasy drama he was starring in. Upon seeing each other, he immediately recognised Giana, hugged her and told her he missed Buddy. Of the sweet moment, Giana said, "Henry Cavill, aka the Man of Steel, is as beautiful on the inside as he is on the outside". All together now, awww.
