The long-awaited sequel to Enola Holmes came out just late last month to millions of eager viewers who just couldn’t stop refreshing their browsers. Henry Cavill once again reprized his role as the shrewd Sherlock Holmes, and his co-star Millie Bobby Brown once again graced the screen in the lead role of Enola Holmes, the latter’s younger sister.
There’s no doubt that Brown and Cavill have developed a fondness for each other as on-screen friends and pals. But there are strict boundaries that they both agreed to set between themselves before things got out of control, and for some reason people find that weird.

Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill developed a chemistry with each other on screen, which was of course forged over their time playing the brother-sister duo of Sherlock Holmes and Enola Holmes in both films based on the adventures of the latter. .
However, their friendship has its own boundaries which the two movie stars make sure to properly maintain.

During an interview with Deadline earlier this month, Brown revealed some interesting details about how her relationship with the Steel man the star is different about his relationship with her stranger things cast members –
“[We have] like a really good, really healthy friendship. The one we have terms and conditions.
“I know Henry. He has terms and conditions with me. I have no right to ask questions about his personal life. It’s like, ‘Millie, shut up. Nope.’ And I’m like “understood”.
“While with the kids in Stranger Things, it’s different. There are no boundaries because it’s like we’re all siblings. But with Henry, he’s very strict with me, that that I appreciate.
It’s a great way to keep things in line, especially considering their huge age gap. But it seems some thoughtful sections of the internet have been embarrassed by the boundaries the two have established, much to the confusion and anger of Enola Holmes Fans –
Henry Cavill having explicit boundaries with Millie Bobbie Brown is kind of weird and newsworthy to people and not just how a 40 year old man should behave around a girl who just turned 18.

As a matter of fact –
Henry Cavill, a normal and pretty cool guy, continues to be normal and pretty cool
Guess it’s newsworthy in that a rich and famous guy isn’t a downright freak

They take themselves out –
Even weirder are people like “haha, she’s obviously into him”. It really gives me insight into all the creepy older guys who thought that me being teenager and polite was a green light.

Very telling of the times –
Lol I saw this title as woooow low bar “a grown man acts appropriately and professionally with a young female costar” sad

Problems make themselves –
He set healthy limits on their friendship, and people make it weird for them lol.

Read it all, guys –
Everyone here makes comments and opinions about the title that has baited you. Do you know what the limit was? It was that he didn’t tell her about his personal life or anyone he was in a relationship with. He prefers to keep his life private. So move on to something else.

It’s kind of weird that people even assume the two had a romantic relationship. While their chemistry is amazing in both Enola Holmes movies, it’s very telling of people who associate the two as lovers.

Many were quick to reject the boundaries drawn between Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill, calling them bizarre. But it is better to have them before something abnormal happens.
While it’s true that those who call it all limits are talking weird, it’s also very hypocritical (and hypocritically weird) to assume that the two would date or even be mildly interested in each other romantically.

However, the Internet has many opinions and counter-arguments against the defenders of the Enola Holmes star boundaries also arose. The latest offense comes in the form of people calling out Henry Cavill for dating a 19-year-old girl when he was in his 30s –
I don’t know the tik tok conspiracy theory but he dated a 19 year old a few years ago when he was in his thirties and I found out because of this shit so whatever either, it backfiredhttps://t.co/VNa7te2BPy

Maybe he’s trying to avoid this from now on –
I mean, my man was in his thirties and was dating a 19-year-old girl. Hope he learned his lesson. 🙄

This comment might still get him in trouble –
Please he dated a 19 year old 5 years ago and constantly bragged about how “mature” she was for her age. He is no better

Everyone forgot it, even if it’s a bit off topic –
— Rich Clarkophile (@exposingrich) November 9, 2022
It’s a hilarious description –
He’s dated a 19 year old publicly and he’s just a nice neck beard with views bordering on incel

Playing his cards very carefully –
It’s newsworthy because he dated a 19-year-old a few years ago, and he has some interesting thoughts on the Me Too movement, so he’s paying attention.

If you discover all of this and find it a little too overwhelming, that’s fine. Take a break and take the last Enola Holmes 2 on Netflix.
