"I’ve been fortunate enough to not be around the kind of people who behave that way," he said, adding that, to his memory, there had been "no moments when I look back and think, 'Ooh, Ok, maybe someone shouldn't have gone through that."

But when questioned on how the revelations out of Hollywood had made him reflect on his own behavior, he turned to flirting, saying that "while stuff had to change" with regard to men's behavior, it was also "important to retain the good things, where were a quality of the past, and get rid of the bad things."

However, Cavill – who said he believed in the "traditional" approach to dating in which women are "wooed and chased" – later went on to talk about his hesitancy to approach women in the current climate.

"It's very difficult to do that if there are certain rules in place. Because then it’s like: ‘Well, I don’t want to go up and talk to her, because I’m going to be called a rapist or something,'" he said.

"So you’re like, ‘Forget it, I’m going to call an ex-girlfriend instead, and then just go back to a relationship, which never really worked.' But it’s way safer than casting myself into the fires of h---, because I’m someone in the public eye, and if I go and flirt with someone, then who knows what’s going to happen?"
