Hollywood actor Henry Cavill has apologised after he said the wake of the #MeToo movement prevents him from "wooing" a woman, as he lives in fear of being labelled a "rapist".

In an interview with GQ magazine, the Superman star said "stuff has to change" regarding sexual harassment in the movie industry, but went on to complain he now struggles to approach prospective partners.

"It's very difficult to do that if there are certain rules in place," he said.

So then, the apology : "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 said .

Henry Cavill has apologised “ for any confusion and misunderstanding” over comments he made about the # MeToo movement. The Superman actor, who will soon be seen in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, said there is “something wonderful about a man chasing a woman”.

"There's something wonderful about a man chasing a woman," he said.

"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."

Cavill continued that he'd rather "call an ex-girlfriend" than try to meet someone new, as it was "safer" considering his position in the public eye.
