What a Prince
Clive Owen, the new face for Lancome’s men’s line, recently gave an interview to Playboy magazine. (See, the DO have articles!) In the interview, he tackled the topic of infidelity on set.
Remember, Clive has co-starred with Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Natalie Portman and Monica Belluci, not too shabby, and awfully tempting! But he always returns home to his wife Sarah-Jane Fenton and two daughters.
“I so value what I’ve got at home with my wife and kids that I’ve never f—-ed with that,” Owen, 42, tells Playboy in its September issue. “For me, that’s what it’s about.”
“I’ve had some great times with actresses, but that’s in a movie. It’s a fun thing to do, but it’s not love. So I never have a problem with that.”
When it comes to making love onscreen, “Even sex scenes are very straightforward,” he says. “You’ve got things to accomplish, work to do. I find the thing to do in those situations is to just keep the atmosphere as light as possible.”
How refreshing to hear from a (very handsome) actor who sees his job as (gasp) a job and not a buffet for him to graze from.
And as for his penchant for playing the bad boys in the movies (Closer anyone??)
“The worst piece of advice I’ve gotten in my whole career is from somebody who said, ‘Remember, it’s all about likeability.’ A number of times since then I’ve thought, What a pile of bulls—.”
We think we like him even more now… and we will be reading this month’s Playboy for the article, or maybe just the pictures (of Clive). ;-)
