Owen, who portrays a father of a daughter targeted by an online sexual predator on the drama movie, is disappointed at the given rating since he admits the story will benefit teenagers.
Actor Clive Owen is upset his hard-hitting new movie drama "Trust" has been given a restrictive 'R' rating - because he feels teenagers should see the film. The Brit plays a doting dad whose daughter meets up with an Internet pen pal only to find he's a sick 40-something sexual predator pretending to be a teen - and he's convinced young Internet users would benefit from the story.
Unfortunately, the U.S. rating means youngsters won't get a chance. The "Children of Men" star says, "We tried to appeal to that because it is a film that teenagers should see, but that's the rating."
On another news, Owen showed off his heavy-duty mustache during his appearance on the "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", March 22 and said to the host, "It's for the part... I'm playing Ernest Hemingway."
