'The Boys Are Back' star Clive Owen covers the October 2009 issue of Details Magazine. The 46-year-old British actor is the kind of be-stubbled brooder whom straight men find authentic and their wives find irresistible. Not letting fame go to his head, Owen had the following to say about the way he'd like to be regarded while he's still alive:
"I got in a cab in Glasgow years ago," he says. "And this quite surly cabdriver says to me, 'You're that actor, aren't you? You get paid to lie, don't you? That's what actors are, aren't they? Professional bullshitters.' It had quite an effect on me. I fucking get paid to lie. . . . I walked out of there and I spent a bit of time thinking about it. And then I realized I think it's the opposite: It's an opportunity to tell the truth. I try to do that in everything I do. And whether you like a movie I'm in or not, I want you to believe me. More than admire me or think I was brilliantly skillful, I want you to believe me."
