Clive Owen insists he can still live a “normal” life, despite his fame.
Despite starring in a number of high-profile movies – including ‘Closer’, ‘Sin City’ and ‘Children of Men’ – Clive says he doesn’t really get bothered by people when he goes out and is allowed to get on with his everyday life.
He said: “I can lead a ‘normal’ life, definitely. There’s no question that being recognised is a part of my life, but I can live with that. People just come up to me and say, ‘I saw that film you were in. I really didn’t like it.’ Great. ‘Can I have your picture?’ Other than that, I feel like I can go about and do what I like. If you carry yourself in the right kind of way, it’s pretty easy to just enjoy yourself. Do what you want.”
Clive also says he gets homesick for London when he’s away shooting movies and can’t wait to get back to his family, wife Sarah-Jane Fenton and their two daughters, Hannah and Eve.
The 46-year-old star told Shortlist magazine: “I’m fine if I’m working hard. What I don’t like is lots of days off when I’m on the wrong side of the world. Then I start to get tetchy and start asking myself, ‘Oh God, what am I even doing here?’ I’m a big fan of London – I’ve lived there since the 80s – and I’d never want to live anywhere else or be away too long. I miss it when I’m away.”
