Clive Owen Covers 'Details' October 2009

Clive Owen suits up for the October 2009 cover of Details Magazine. The 46-year-old British actor is the kind of be-stubbled brooder whom straight men find authentic and their wives find irresistible. Here’s what Clive shared:

On recent scripts: “They are not very good. And these are films that are funded and ready-to-go ¬≠expensive movies. You’re amazed that people are funding them. I start to think it’s me that I’m being too choosy.”

On living a normal life: “I’m quite good at getting on with my thing. I feel I’m pretty nifty; I can spot trouble coming.”

On reconnecting with his father: “It was a very bizarre experience, looking
at someone you’ve never known and going, ‘Oh my God, that’s my father.’”

Clive‘s new movie The Boys Are Back opens in limited release next Friday (September 25).

    What does it mean that straight men find him “authentic”? Is that a way of saying that he is really straight himself, rather than in the closet like most actors?

    @mark spears: Doubt it! No male actor is straight, not really. Else he wouldn’t want to be an actor, and certainly wouldn’t have the talent for it.
