"I’ve been fortunate enough to not be around the kind of people who behave that way," he said, adding that, to his memory, there had been "no moments when I look back and think, 'Ooh, Ok, maybe someone shouldn't have gone through that."

But when questioned on how the revelations out of Hollywood had made him reflect on his own behavior, he turned to flirting, saying that "while stuff had to change" with regard to men's behavior, it was also "important to retain the good things, where were a quality of the past, and get rid of the bad things."

However, Cavill – who said he believed in the "traditional" approach to dating in which women are "wooed and chased" – later went on to talk about his hesitancy to approach women in the current climate.

"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 be called a rapist or something,'" he said.

"So you’re like, ‘Forget it, I’m going to call an ex-girlfriend instead, and then just go back to a relationship, which never really worked.' But it’s way safer than casting myself into the fires of h---, because I’m someone in the public eye, and if I go and flirt with someone, then who knows what’s going to happen?"

Mark Hamill is apparently floating around the convention floor at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, wearing a mask. Luckily for fans hoping to meet Luke Skywalker, it's apparently a mask of his own face. Hamill took to Twitter and Instagram to tease that he's at the convention center in San Diego this weekend, and like other celebrities before him, he's disguising his identity in the sea of fans and cosplayers. In two posts, he goofed around about whether he was actually at the convention, before saying that he'll have a different mask for each of the four days of the convention, and that con-goers should come find him. There's an unsubstantiated rumor I'm at #SDCC right now wearing a mask to avoid being recognized (I'm not)-But if I really WAS there in disguise, would I lie about it to fool people-secretly talk to fans-attend panels & have fun? (I would) #ComicConConpic.twitter.com/8vxvFsQg48 - Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) July 19, 2018 Also read: 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' Returns the Jedi With 12 New Episodes, Trailer (Video) Would I lie about being in disguise at #SDCC?
