Henry Cavill uses his success to get back at bullies.

The 22-year-old actor admitted when he was at school the kids would pick on him because he was heavier than most and had ''ambitions''.

He admitted: ''Because I was overweight and I had ambitions, I was target number one for the alphas of each group.''

However, now he is a successful actor - famed for playing Superman in 'Man of Steel' - when he sees any of the ''alphas'' now he is older he said he just ''ignored'' them and he ''really enjoyed it''.

He told The Sun newspaper: ''I've had a couple of awkward moments where I've seen one in a room and deliberately ignored him and really enjoyed it.

''He kept looking over and trying to make eye contact and I just kept on blanking him. That was enjoyable because he looks like he's still a w*****.''

Although now Henry is seen as a sex symbol because of the different body types of the characters he plays on the big-screen his weight is all over the place so he has to buy new clothing all every time he changes shape and admitted he is ''bigger'' than he was in 'Man of Steel'.

He previously shared: ''I'm buying new clothes every year. I'm bigger than I was in the first Superman film [Man of Steel], so I don't fit the same clothes I did then. And when I was doing 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E'., I was smaller, so it's a constant shift in body size and shape.''
