Henry Cavill sat down with Peter Travers to discuss "Superman" and ended up sharing his childhood nickname: Fat Cavill. Further proving that kids can be mean, but not necessarily clever, the man of steel said, "Their nickname for me was quite fitting ... I was fat, my name is Cavill." Just spitballing here, but at least "Chubby Cavill" is alliterative.

Cavill blamed his puffier days, in part, on "crisps ... what you call chips," and for his first role, in "The Count of Monte Cristo," he lost "about a stone, um, sorry, 14 pounds." Thanks for translating, Fit Cavill.
