The horse has a hard-on. A big, curling, reverse-banana hard-on that bobs itself into existence just as they saddle the big slug. We’re twelve minutes from post, and I’m thinking three words: can’t be good. There’s three of us, betting the horses at Longchamp, that arbored and beatific Parisian racetrack, on a Sunday afternoon. Mike the horse guy, him in his expensive tie and mud-brown coat, concurs. He shrugs, gulps, twists in his shoes, hisses. “That doesn’t bode well for us, boys,” Mike the horse guy says. And I figure, Good. All bets are off.
Clive Owen, however, is genuinely nonplussed. He appears a kind of lookout, squinting over the top of his sunglasses, muttering a bit, lifting his lip, mouthing a single, silent word. He’s mulling this fabulously ill-timed erection, which dips so far as to touch the ground. There’s a Stella clamped in his left hand, racing form folded under his arm. He’s got that Clive Owen stare going, a brooding glower, a sinister peek, the pointy end of the handsomeness spear. Read the rest of this entry »
Tuesday, February 10. After taking a break from movie-making, Julia Roberts will soon be back where she belongs: playing the leading lady. Writing in the New York Times, Michael Cieply notes that Roberts’s recent work has included an unhappy stint on Broadway and providing the voice for animated spiders and ants in children’s films. Hardly the sort of roles audiences have come to expect of “an actress who was the biggest female box office star in Hollywood for a decade”. Read the rest of this entry »
Clive Owen stars in the suspense flick The International, which opens Friday. And although the movie sounds like a hit – the trailer is killer – Owen says he never considers how a movie will fare at the box office.
“I never, ever take a film thinking, ‘This is going to be a big success,'” he tells Sun Media. “I wouldn’t have done Children of Men. There is a whole world of films I wouldn’t have done.” Read the rest of this entry »
“The International” is equal parts globe-trotting thriller and architecture porn, as perfectly crystallized by its mind-blowing central set piece: a seemingly endless shootout at the Guggenheim Museum.
The back story of how Tom Tykwer and Co. shot it is about as complicated as the plot of the film itself. The scene is so elaborate and ambitious — and stands so totally apart from everything else that happens — it’s enough to make you wonder whether the earliest nugget of Eric Warren Singer’s script began with the idea: “Hey, this sounds crazy, but what if we staged a big, bloody shootout along Frank Lloyd Wright’s famously pristine, white ramps?” Read the rest of this entry »
“I’m really where I want to be terms of the opportunities I’m getting and the people I’m working with,” Clive Owen recently declared. And with Naomi Watts’ as his co-star in upcoming action thriller The International, it’s no wonder.
The English actor and Naomi were reunited at the New York screening of the espionage film – which was this year’s Berlin Film Festival opener. There, the mum-of-two had some thoughts to share about her leading man. Read the rest of this entry »
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.” Read the rest of this entry »
