Just because Clive Owen is a movie star doesn’t mean his family treats him like a king 24/7.
“Whenever I’ve done a movie and been away from home, I tend to take considerable downtime, and then we lead as normal of a life as we can,” the actor, 46, who has been married to wife Sarah-Jane Fenton since 1995, tells OK! at last night’s NYC premiere of his new film Duplicity, co-starring Julia Roberts. “I take the kids to school, Sarah-Jane and I hang out, go out in the evenings and do all the things you’d expect.”
His daughters, Hannah, 12, and Eve, 9, like to make sure dear ol’ dad doesn’t let his ego get too big.
“They send me texts like ‘Don’t wear the velvet jacket because it’s weird and embarrassing.’ They make me too self-conscious now, like ‘Oh, I’ve gotta go and get changed in the dark.’”
Wait, they don’t think he’s rugged and cool?
“They definitely don’t think that, no. They know me better than that.”
Despite the ribbing he gets from his kids, Clive enjoys taking them to the movies.
“I’ve literally seen every kids’ movie for the last eight years I think,” he says.
