"Regrets are something you can't really have as an actor, because ultimately you'll end up destroying yourself."

British actor Henry Cavill is just one phone call away from being the next big thing. The 25-year-old has had a number of near misses when it comes to stardom -- losing out on leading roles in blockbuster movies like 'Twilight', 'Batman Begins' and 'Casino Royale' at the last minute.

Cavill did, however, nab a big role in the Showtime series 'The Tudors' and smaller turns in films like 'Stardust' and 'Tristan and Isolde.' This summer he'll appear in Woody Allen's'Whatever Works,' followed by Joel Schumacher's'Town Creek' and 2010's '300'-esque 'War of the Gods.'
