‘He didn’t like me too much’: Henry Cavill hated working with co-star James Franco?

Back when Sam Raimi was Spider Man from the epic Spider-Man trilogy released in 2002, Harry Osborn actor James Franco was the movie’s most dashing and handsome character for fans of the box office hit. Fans would literally say that the 44-year-old actor is way better looking than star Tobey Maguire!

Franco claims that co-stars Kirsten Dunst and Tobey Maguire were a “couple” at the time and that he also had a crush on Dunst, which ultimately led to tension between the two male co-stars. Now it looks like Pineapple Express nobody is someone you’d think would be an utterly unpleasant person to be around on a movie set, and supporting Maguire’s disdain for him would also be Henry Cavill!

Henry Cavill hated working with James Franco, says Franco

As things stand, James Franco isn’t the nicest guy, especially because there have been several sexual misconduct allegations against the 44-year-old star. It also makes him one of the most unsellable actors right now, and rightly so because it was pretty much canceled.

Various actors shared their comments on their experience of working with the The Ascension of the Planet of the Apes star, and none of them like the person at all. During the filming of Annapolis, Tyrese Gibson claims Franco took his acting method too seriously, adding that he hit the F9 star one too many times in the face too.

To this list of actors is added Henry Cavill, who, according to Franco, was not too attracted to him as a person. In a review he wrote for Zack Snyder Steel man for Vice, the James Dean star reveals that Cavill indeed had some reservations for him-

“Years ago we worked together on a movie called Tristan and Isolde. I played Tristan and he played my sidekick. My hunch is he didn’t like me very much. I don’t know that with certainty, but I know that I would not have liked myself at the time because I was a difficult young actor who took himself too seriously.

It probably must have been a hunch for James Franco, maybe Cavill’s stern demeanor and huge body put him off. But one thing is certain, the Justice League star is definitely doing better than Franco in the movie industry right now!

James Franco at least tried to change after the allegations

The sexual misconduct allegations that were raised against James Franco a few years ago were certainly a recipe for a huge setback in his acting career. The charges range from a violent physical altercation with a co-star to a forced or*ls*x with a former girlfriend.

The 44-year-old star has finally lost his longtime friendship with comedian and actor Seth Rogen, as well as the growing internet dislike for the actor.

But Franco also appears to have taken these allegations against him in a positive light, stating on The Jess Cagle Podcast that he “changed” after the whole incident-

“If anything positive came out of it, it’s like I’ve changed. It gave me the incentive to do the work to change. I will continue to work at it for the rest of my life, but at least it took me off this path that was never going to end and would probably kill me.

It’s kind of nice to hear that at least he’s being honest about what he’s done and working on becoming a better person!
