Clive Owen wants to give up his film career.
The 44-year-old actor – who trained in the theatre before making it big in a number of Hollywood blockbusters – said he’s thinking about giving up shooting movies in order to concentrate on a stage career.
He said: “I’m actually pretty sure that this will happen soon. I would imagine I’d have to stop the films in order to concentrate entirely on my stage career. I’ve always played theatre roles.”
The ‘Children of Men’ actor – who starred in the West End and Broadway hit play ‘Closer’ and was later in the 2005 film version – said sometimes you just have to do the things which made you happy. [Read more…] about Clive Owen wants to quit
November 25, 2009 – IGN chatted with acclaimed director Spike Lee yesterday about the DVD release of his documentary Kobe Doin’ Work, during which time we also asked the filmmaker about some long-gestating Joints on his development slate. Here’s what he had to say about them:
IGN: What’s up with Inside Man 2?
Spike Lee: Waiting on Universal Pictures. They have the script. They have the budget and we’ll see if they wanna make it. Denzel’s ready. Clive Owen’s ready. I’m ready. Jodie’s ready. Everyone’s ready. It’s like, “Coach, put us in!”
IGN: You’ve long wanted to do a film about Joe Louis [entitled Save Us, Joe Louis].
Spike Lee: I’ve been unable to get the financing. What’s really sad about that is that I had made a promise to the late great Budd Schulberg that we’d get it done and Budd passed recently. He was 95. Budd being, of course, the screenwriter of On the Waterfront and the novelist of What Makes Sammy Run. Great, great, great, great writer. [Read more…] about Spike Lee Talks About Inside Man 2
The Boys Are Back is your first Australian film. How’d you enjoy it?
Australia is stunning. We shot in McLaren Vale, a region (director) Scott Hicks knows very well and one of the most staggeringly beautiful areas of South Australia. I got a house near the location overlooking this gorgeous beach, brought the family out and we had an amazing few weeks in the great outdoors. My girls still talk about their time in Australia as the best holiday they’ve ever had. And for me, who considers time away from home as the greatest tyranny of being an actor abroad, it was very special.
Fertile wine country around there. Did you indulge?
I’m into researching roles so yeah, that part of my preparation was a big success!
Death. Abandonment. Chaos. This film’s about family… but it’s not a family film?
Right from the outset we didn’t want to make a clichéd sentimental family movie. This story moved something deep down inside me – the prospect of losing my partner is as awful a thing as I can imagine. So while it’s a small story in a big world context, it’ll touch the nerves of a lot of people. [Read more…] about Clive Owen New Interview

Clive Owen’s co-star has revealed she was the envy of her daughters for being paid to be hugged by the hunky star.
Julia Blake – who plays Clive’s character’s difficult mother-in-law in The Boys Are Back – was the envy of many when they found out she was working with the Duplicity star.
At the film’s Australian premiere she said: “My daughters were a bit jealous that I got paid to be hugged by Clive Owen.”
She added: “He’s the best – he’s a very unselfish, giving actor. Quiet, very impressive and very, very likeable. Very down-to-earth and charming, with a lot of personal charm.”
Director Scott Hicks apologised for the absence of his leading man on the red carpet at the Wallis Piccadilly cinema in Adelaide, saying: “Clive just started shooting a movie today in the US – he really wanted to be here as we had travelled around the US, the UK and Europe to promote this film.” [Read more…] about Clive Owen praised by Boys co-stars
