Henry Cavill has made it obvious he’s a bit of a nerd. As well as this, Cavill has made it abundantly clear he’s a PC gamer. And to further prove his point, he recently posted a video on his Instagram page of him building a PC.
The caption underneath the video reads ‘All The Parts. This kind of material isn’t for everyone…. viewer discretion is advised. You may see a lot of parts that you haven’t seen before.’ Barry White’s ‘You’re The First, My Last, My Everything’ plays seductively over the clip, too. It’s fair to say the clip attracted attention from not just Man of Steel or PC fans, but Cavill fans everywhere.
The comments section ended up getting pretty rowdy. Even ex porn star, Mia Malkova dropped a cheeky comment, saying she enjoyed the video ‘too much’. Another user quipped, ‘And on quarantine day 118: Henry Cavill creates a new kind of porn.’
However, it wasn’t just horny Instagram users who enjoyed the clip. One fellow PC gamer commented, saying ‘I enjoyed watching this so much! There’s nothing more awesome than seeing someone famous just be as geeky as I am when building a new rig.’
Back in April, The Witcher star also shared a picture of him painting Warhammer figures. The caption read, ‘I’ve decided to polish some old skills and try my hand at some new ones! It is a time of rebirth after all. So, as you can see here, the obvious might look a little bit like a tiny helmet…which it is. One of my almost life long hobbies, that I’ve been following but not actively doing, is this.’
I’m not sure Henry Cavill really has anything to prove, but it’s clear he wants to be welcomed in by all the nerds and geeks. I’m pretty sure he’s achieved that.
