Henry Cavill, 'Man Of Steel' Actor, Isn't The Only Star To Have Revealed Past Weight Struggles

Chiseled British star Henry Cavill, who we'll soon see on-screen in a skintight Superman costume, recently admitted that he struggled with his weight as a boy.

He told Details magazine: "I was fat. I was Fat Cavill."

"It’s modesty about the weight -- I’ve always been worried about my weight," the 30-year-old 'Man of Steel' star continued.

Now, The Daily Mail has claimed pupils at Cavill's former exclusive fee-paying school in Buckinghamshire used to tease him by calling him "Fatty Cavill." Oh how they must wish they were friends with him now...

Earlier this year, Cavill beat fellow Brits Sam Claflin and Nicholas Hoult to be crowned the biggest male breakout movie star of 2013, according to Fandango.com.

But Cavill isn't the only slim and fit celebrity to open up about his past battle with the bulge, see more examples in our slideshow below...
