Henry Cavill perhaps played one of the cruelest jokes ever on 50 Shades of Grey fans. The British hunk has admitted that he was only joking when he suggested that he might be in the film's upcoming sequel.
The actor - who is best known for playing Superman on the big screen - admits that there have been so many rumors about him potentially sharing the screen with Jamie Dornan that he decided to have a little fun with it.
According to the Mirror on Friday, Cavill said his recent comments about the film were nothing more than a joke. Or a cruel joke, if you asked any fan of the popular soft-erotica series.
"I'm not in 'Fifty Shades of Grey.' I'm for real. I'm just messing with everyone," he said.
Cavill added that even though he's denied rumors that he was supposed to play Christian Grey in the past, no one would believe him.
He explained, "The first time around, everyone was asking, 'Are you Christian Grey?' I went 'No!' But no one cared and everyone kept talking about it. This time around, everyone is now still convinced I'm part of the series. Now the question is, 'Are you going to be in 'Fifty Shades Darker.' And I thought, I'm going to try a different tact this time. See what they say. And so I tried a different tact."
