When the Man of Steel actor started his career, he used to go prepared for the role. But when he auditioned for The Lion in Winter in 2003, something changed for the actor and taught him a great life lesson. Stewart was making a film, The Lion in Winter, which was a remake of a 1968 Academy Award-winning film.
The central subject of the film was King Henry II of England. When Henry Cavill auditioned for the role the first time, he had put in a lot of effort and practiced for the role as well. But he couldn’t perform because he found Stewart’s aura to be very strong and overwhelming. He stood there still and couldn’t perform as he thought he would.
