Clive Owen "Doesn't Care" About His Looks

Clive Owen doesn't care about his looks. The "Children of Men" actor doesn't make any effort with his appearance in his "normal life," despite being regarded as a Hollywood heartthrob.

He said: "Any actor who starts taking the tag 'sex symbol' seriously or thinks of themselves as a sex symbol has got some serious problems. When I'm in my normal life I care very little about how I look. Sometimes I have to dress up when I'm making movies, but that's not me when I'm just hanging around."

Clive is proud he looks like he needs "a good wash and a good meal" in his new movie "The International," in which he stars alongside Naomi Watts as an Interpol agent.

He told Parade magazine: "I don't mind looking like I need a good wash and a good meal. There's no vanity about my character and I think that's real. His absolute obsessive passion is trying to bring a bank down. He doesn't care how he looks. So I just stopped shaving and left it to the make-up people to make sure I looked bad in every scene."

Despite being a celluloid hardman, Clive - who lives with his wife Sarah-Jane Fenton and their two daughters Hannah and Eve - insists he is a big softie at home.

The 44-year-old actor said: "I go off and make movies, but there's nothing better than going home and hanging with my girls. They completely boss me. I have no power in my house whatsoever. I am the geek of my household. I am so low-status in my house, you wouldn't believe it, definitely not a movie star."
