You have starred in Sin City, Shoot ‘Em Up and Inside Man–all action movies. Do you consider yourself an action star? Dany Jean-Philippe PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI

Is there a role you didn’t get that you wish you had gotten? Katie Baker, AMES, IOWA Not really. I have very few regrets. This part in Duplicity would have hurt if I hadn’t gotten it. I finished the script, called up the agent and said, “This is the one.” If someone else had ended up doing it, that would have hurt. I just thought it was incredibly smart and savvy, and it has some of the best dialogue I’ve ever been given on film.
I admire your craft and think you would make a great 007. Have you ever wanted or been offered the role of James Bond? Phillip McDowell JACKSONVILLE, FLA. No. I’m very happy doing what I’m doing. Read the rest of this entry »

The meeting was marked in the executive suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Berlin, during the 59th film festival in the city. Clive Owen was there to publicize his new movie, Trama International of Tom Tykwer, who debut in Brazil in late March. During the interview, he spent most of his time with his arms crossed.

In Duplicity, Julia Roberts and Clive Owen team up to play a pair of spies wrapped up in a complicated battle between pharmaceutical rivals.
In real life, the actors talk about the honesty in their own relationships — and why they couldn’t seem to pull it together on the set for director Tony Gilroy.
Q: Don’t you think it’s funny that we’re in a society now where the corporate guys are the villains?
Julia Roberts: Well they’ve earned it.
Clive Owen: The movie is about two corporate spies who end up together deciding to scam the big companies they work for and try and make themselves a big payday.
JR: You don’t really know if we’re friends or enemies or lovers and we’re kind of all of those things. It’s tough to fit romance into all the scheming. But I guess it is sexy. I don’t know if it’s romantic, but maybe it’s sexy. Read the rest of this entry »
Emmanuel Itier: Why did you want to do this movie?
