Hollywood has a plethora of actors who have very successful acting careers. However, Henry Cavill is one of the few actors who, in addition to a successful career in acting, is very good-looking. He is one of the most versatile actors and has starred in iconic roles such as Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher and Clark Kent in The Man of Steel. Besides being a promising performer, Cavill is also known for his looks and muscular appearance. Interestingly, Henry Cavill’s slightly flawed teeth also catch the mass’s eyes.
While certain actors struggle to make headlines for their movies, Cavill’s teeth alone attract a lot of attention. But what is so special about the Man of Steel’s teeth?
What is the big fuss about Henry Cavill’s teeth?
While Henry Cavill certainly is the center of attention for his work and his looks, his teeth do not go unnoticed. Fans can’t help but adore the Enola Holmes actor for his slightly crooked yet endearing canines. It all started when fans noticed one of his crooked yet unique teeth during his appearance as Clark Kent in the 2013 film Man Of Steel. Over the years, several tweets based on Cavill’s teeth flooded the internet as fans pointed out how the actor’s slightly crooked teeth made it difficult for him to disguise his identity as Superman. While specific fans find it a problem in Cavill’s overall appearance, others are in awe of the Man of Steel’s misaligned teeth.
Henry Cavill's canine teeth are the best canine teeth.

Henry Cavill has really distinctive and unusual teeth, and a particularly crooked tooth in his lower, making it that much harder to sell the Superman/Clark disguise. But that’s more of a general Superman problem. He works better as lines on paper. 5/

Useless fact of the day: It’s kind of funny how Henry Cavill’s bottom teeth are kind of crooked. If Clark Kent’s teeth came in crooked, no braces on Earth could fix them. So I guess it checks out.

However, some fans wished the production team behind the Man of Steel fixed the teeth digitally. Meanwhile, others defended it, saying his misaligned teeth were not such a big deal since Cavill aced the role of Superman irrespective of the flaw in his teeth.
How a flaw in Cavill was a perfect fit for his role in The Witcher?
Geralt of Rivia, in The Witcher, is another role Henry Cavill played to perfection. The fantasy series became a worldwide sensation soon after its release. In the series, Geralt is depicted as being somewhat nonchalant and taciturn. Besides his knowledge of the role, Cavill was also the perfect choice due to his crooked teeth. The darkness of the world Witcher inhabits is not unknown; notably, the Witcher does not smile much. Even when he does, it is called a hideous smile, and there is a natural grimness to it. Apparently, Henry Cavill’s crooked teeth made the smile much more intense and brought an endearing quality to his character.
