Los Angeles - Henry Cavill doesn't "feel the need" to prove himself.

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star insists he never puts "that kind of pressure" on himself and is content in what he is doing.

He said: "I don't feel the need to prove myself. If you're worried about that then you're worried about the wrong things. I never put that kind of pressure on myself. I'm quite happy doing what I'm doing."

The 32-year-old actor was recently named the Sexiest Man of the Year in Britain and admits he is worried about it going to his head.

He added to DuJour magazine: "You've got to be worried about this shit getting to your head. It's enormously flattering, but I'm not going to throw all my eggs in that basket ...

"When I'm not working and people haven't seen me in ages, they'll say, 'You're so lazy, you don't do anything!' I think the ability to look like Superman but never having to work for it would be good."

Meanwhile, Henry previously revealed he once considered quitting acting to join the Armed Forces.

He shared: "There were plenty of times I thought it wouldn't happen. At one stage I was like, 'If this next movie doesn't do well then I'm out, I'm going to join the Armed Forces'.

"Then I got the screen test for Bond and thought, my name is out there now, so maybe I should stick around. And I did."
