That said, I want to reiterate something that you have probably already figured out for yourself: Henry Cavill is a beautiful man. There was a moment in the movie when even my husband turned to me and said, "Yes. You are right. That man is very handsome."
As I've enthusiastically mentioned before, Henry Cavill is a muse of mine. I am basing the appearance of one of my heroes on him, but I'm changing a couple of details. My hero is shorter than Henry, who is 6'2". My hero is wirier than Henry, who got jacked to epic proportions for Man of Steel. And like Henry, my hero has heterochromia iridum, a difference in coloration of the eye. In some people, like David Bowie, the condition exists as a result of an injury; Bowie has one permanently dilated pupil, which for some reason strikes me as very rock and roll.

In others, like Henry, the condition is inherited. He's got blue eyes (sigh), but the top portion of his left eye contains rays of brown. Here's another photo, just to help you visualize this.

Maybe you need another photo.
