Clive Owen has established himself as a serious actor. No, better make that serious actor. So when Details magazine paid a visit to the star of "Sin City," "Children of Men," and "Duplicity" at his home in a leafy London suburb, it wasn't surprising when Owen suggested a stroll through a local cemetery.
After all, Owen's face often wears an expression that suggests a man contemplating mortality. But what's really on his mind these days is his family. Even during his tombstone tour. Spotting a fox, he says, "I've got to bring the girls here," referring to his daughters, Hannah, 12, and Eve, 10.
"There have been times in the past when it's become clear that there needs to be a break," he says of balancing his Hollywood career with his family life. "Too much working. Too much going away. You just stop. As things have opened up for me, I call it. I say, 'I'm sorry, you want to film then? I can't do it.'"
