Henry Cavill truly is the Man of Steel.
When asked about how he maintains his impressive physique during a chat Wednesday on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” the “Batman Vs. Superman” star’s cheeky response implied that the gym isn’t the only place he prefers to break a sweat.
“I run, that’s the savory answer,” the 32-year-old responds, with a wry smile. As the audience laughs, nervously, he adds, “I think they get it.”
The Brit heartthrob generally stays in shape year-round for movies, but during a hiatus, he also takes a break from his diet. “I tend to be off-season,” he says.
“I work really hard at getting fat,” he explains, adding that he begins shooting DC Comics’ “Justice League” in January. “I put weight on and lose it again before we start shooting… If I’m mass building I’ll eat burgers and stuff.”
Right now, for instance, “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” star is about to begin his off-season, so he’s keen on having a cold Guinness beer, something that he says he craves when he’s on a diet.
As for how he’ll burn off those calories later, well, he’ll let you use your imagination for that.
“The Man from U.N.C.L.E” is in theaters on Aug. 14.
