Clive Owen Weeps Reading Script of 'The Boys Are Back'


Clive Owen


His latest role as a single parent in 'The Boys Are Back' reminds Clive Owen of his own daughters.

Clive Owen broke down in tears when he read the script for his latest role as a single dad - because the thought of his own children losing their mother devastated him. The Brit actor stars in "The Boys Are Back", playing a sports writer forced to raise his child alone after his wife dies.

But Owen struggled with the role, as it made him lament on how his young daughters, Hannah and Eve, would cope without a parent. He says, "I found it very upsetting when I read it. Every time I read the script I cried. In some scenes I was turning to a young boy and saying, 'Your mother might not be around for much longer.'"

"I find this a devastating idea as a parent of two girls. The idea of that conversation upsets me, so I found it moving."
