Clive Owen believes his owes his Hollywood success to good luck more than his own acting abilities
Clive Owen thinks he is "f***ing lucky".
'The International' star believes he has achieved Hollywood success because of a series of fortuitous events that led him to big movie roles.
He said: "I come from a very working-class background. I feel like were it not for a few things along the way, I would still be there. It's boring, but it's the truth - I've been f**king lucky. Things have swung my way."
Despite his worldwide fame, the 44-year-old actor - who lives with his wife Sarah-Jane Fenton and their two daughters, Hannah and Eve - insists his friends and family help keep him grounded.
Clive - who is best known for his performances in 'Closer', 'Children of Men' and 'Sin City' - explained: "I've got actor friends who didn't get breaks, who struggle and worry about things that I'm fortunate not to have to worry about. I don't take anything for granted. If it stopped now, I'd go, 'Clive, you had a good run there.' "
