British actor CLIVE OWEN has discovered the pitfalls of fame – his daughters keep hassling him to set up a meeting with Jennifer Aniston .The Closer star became pals with Aniston during filming for their 2005 movie Derailed.
And when his daughters Hannah, 12, and Eve, nine, realised their dad knows the Friends actress, they hoped he could use his influence to arrange a meeting.
He tells USA Today, “Weirdly, they’ve become obsessed by Friends. My oldest daughter is obsessed, and she knows I worked with Jennifer Aniston, so she’s like, ‘Call her up, call her up’. I’m not calling her up. What are you going to say to her? They hit me up for weird things like that.” But despite the strains of bringing up two girls, Owen insists he loves fatherhood – and is determined to devote even more time to his family.
He says, “I’ve been travelling so much that I want to hang at home. We used to take the family on holidays and adventures, but more and more, I want to go home and stay at home.
“I love getting up in the morning and taking them to school and picking them up and hanging with them. In the last year or two, if I go away for a certain amount of time to make a film, I make sure I have down time at home to keep the balance right.”
And although the girls love having a famous father, Owen insists they will not be allowed to watch all his movies until they are old enough.
He adds: “They’ve started to understand what I do. They come to every film. They meet everybody. But they’re not allowed to see the film. Most films I do are not appropriate. When they turn 18, they can watch Closer.”
