In his interview with GQ Australia, Henry proclaimed that he is scared of dating and flirting with women in fear of being called “a rapist or something.”  He said “It’s very difficult to do that if there are certain rules in place. Because then it’s like: ‘Well, I don’t want to go up and talk to her, because I’m going to called a rapist or something.’ So you’re like, ‘Forget it, I’m going to call an ex-girlfriend instead, and just go back to a relationship, which never really worked,” he continued.

Henry admitted that putting himself in that situation wasn’t perfect, “it’s way safer than casting myself into the fires of hell,” he explained.

The 35-year old said "There’s something wonderful about a man chasing a woman. There’s a traditional approach to that, which is nice. I think a woman should be wooed and chased, but maybe I’m old-fashioned for thinking that.”

Many social media users fired back by saying things like “#HenryCavill said in his @GQMagazine interview that the #metoo movement has made him nervous to flirt because he doesn’t want to be called a rapist. He is basically saying that women are so sensitive that they can’t even handle someone flirting with them. Superman can suck it."

Henry has retracted his comments by apologizing and saying that “Having seen the reaction to an article in particular about my feelings on dating and the #metoo movement, I just wanted to apologize for any confusion and misunderstanding that this may have created,” he told Page Six in a statement.
