Clive Owen has revealed his children - Hannah, 12, and nine-year-old Eve - are desperate for him to move into kids' movies
Clive Owen's children are desperate for him to make a kids' film.
The 'International' actor refuses to allow his kids - Hannah, 12, and nine-year-old Eve - to watch his usual movies due to their adult content, so they have started pestering him to star in a child-friendly film.
He said: "It's really beginning to get to them that they can't see my films.
"They're like, 'Why can't we watch it? We know it's a movie!' But the idea of them sitting down and watching 'Closer' or 18-rated 'Shoot 'Em Up' is a big no no. So they are putting serious pressure on me to do a kids' film."
Clive can soon be seen starring alongside Julia Roberts in new spy movie 'Duplicity' and has revealed he was so impressed by the script he would have gone to any lengths to secure the part.
He said: "It had some of the best dialogue I've read in years. It's got great dialogue scenes with lots of wicked humour.
"It reminded me of old Cary Grant films, like 'His Girl Friday', because it trips along with great speed and rhythm."
