Clive Owen - "Details" September 2007
British mega-stud Clive Owen is the September 2007 cover star and once-rumored Bond for Details magazine.
On his down to earth wife, Sarah Jane: “I have to drag Sarah-Jane to a premiere. Her ultimate present, which I bought her a few years ago, was a Volkswagen Caravan van. She’s into arts and crafts, and hanging with the kids, and going camping. She’s very unimpressed by what I do.”
On his equally un-impressed daughters: “The girls have very high status in my house. I’m the git in the family. Every time I go away, [daughter] Hannah gives me what I call her Roger Moore face.”
On quitting smoking: ““I f—–’ loved smokin’. Oh, God. I f—–’ loved it. I talked about [quitting] all through [my wife’s] pregnancy, but I didn’t do anything about it. I had smoked since I was f–king 14. I always used to say to myself, I’m going to die of lung cancer. That’s the choice I’m making. And then when Sarah-Jane was pregnant, I couldn’t think about anything else. I just had this image in my head of breathing smoke in a baby’s face. You just think about it going into their little lungs. And when Hannah was born, I stopped.”
And the funniest/weridest quote from the article: “If Brad Pitt is shiny and George Clooney is glossy, Owen is matte.”
