Clive Owen is currently promoting his new movie Shadow Dancer, which is out in theaters May 31. But he's been in the news lately because of a small-screen endeavor — he and director Steven Soderbergh are said to be finalizing a deal to bring a new show called The Knick, about a groundbreaking NYC hospital in the early 1900s, to Cinemax. Clive tells us the latest on his and Steven's project and also reveals the somewhat surprising show he never misses. Plus, Clive's costar Andrea Riseborough dishes about her next leading man, Damian Lewis. On Allie: H&M.
Marion Cotillard got dressed up in a Dior gown to join her costars Zoe Saldana, in Valentino, and Clive Owen and director Guillaume Canet on the Cannes red carpet for the premiere of their film Blood Ties this evening. It was a busy day for the crew since they got together for a photocall and press conference at the film festival this morning. Marion and her partner, Guillaume, who directed her in Blood Ties, were able to sneak in a kiss while celebrating the film together earlier today. Missing from the action was Mila Kunis, who is also in the film but currently stationed in London shooting Jupiter Ascending.
Marion has been making the rounds in France since last week, stepping out for the Chopard lunch on Friday and making a fashionable stop in Monaco to fulfill her duties as the face of Dior at the brand's cruise collection runway show on Saturday.
Celebrities locked lips and showed off new looks while on set this week. On Wednesday, Channing Tatum headed to his trailer in Norfolk, England, for his movie Jupiter Ascending while the film's extras slipped into elaborate sci-fi costumes. Meanwhile, a redheaded Scarlett Johansson took on her Black Widow character in LA for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Zac Efron got into a serious lip-locking session for scenes from Townies. Clive Owen also had onscreen action while on set in Vancouver and shared a kiss with Juliette Binoche for Words and Pictures.

Clive Owen brought his good looks to Paris last night for the French premiere of his new film, Shadow Dancer. He's taken the film around the world in recent months, with screenings in London and Berlin. Earlier in the day, Clive sat down for an interview on Le Grand Journal about his new movie, which opens in France next Wednesday.
Most recently, though, Clive has been home in London. He seems to have skipped out on award season in LA this year. He's been a nominee at multiple shows thanks to his turn as Ernest Hemingway in the HBO project Hemingway & Gellhorn. He was nominated for outstanding performance by a male actor in a television movie or miniseries at Sunday's SAG Awards. Neither he nor his also-nominated costar Nicole Kidman went home winners. Nicole did attend the show, though, donning a sheer Vivienne Westwood gown to have a fun night with her best friend, Naomi Watts.
There's plenty more work ahead for Clive in 2013. He's expected in Paris again next week for an event with Jaeger-LeCoultre on Feb. 7 that will benefit the preservation of marine sites on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. In March, he'll head to Canada. Clive's set to begin production on director Fred Schepisi's new project, Words and Pictures, with Juliette Binoche.
If you want to be in the know about the latest movie casting, we've got the thing for you: we're rounding up all the biggest deals in Hollywood this week. Mark Wahlberg made headlines with the news that he'll be the new leading man in a popular action franchise, while Kristen Stewart, Chloe Moretz, and more also nailed down their future roles.

Freida Pinto and Clive Owen were among the stars to step out for Jaeger-LeCoultre's party celebrating their Rendez-Vous collection at the Venice Film Festival last night. Freida wore a black-and-gold gown with cutouts around the midriff, and Clive looked dapper in a tux. Both stars are making the rounds at festivals this year. She was in Cannes back in May to promote her Desert Dancer. Clive also hit Cannes for the premiere of his Hemingway & Gellhorn with costar Nicole Kidman. Clive's most recent project, Shadow Dancer, had its premiere in London earlier this month.
Clive Owen suited up in London last night for the UK premiere of his new movie, Shadow Dancer. His leading lady, actress Andrea Riseborough, wasn't able to attend. Clive had some other female company, though, in the form of an Alice Temperley-clad Pippa Middleton. Shadow Dancer, the story of an Irish IRA conspirator who spied for the British government in the 1990s, is out in the UK Aug. 24. In addition to speaking about the political nature of the film, Clive also had happy words for the newly engaged Jennifer Aniston, his costar in 2005's Derailed. Clive sent his regards to Jennifer, saying, "Congratulations. She's lovely. I wish her all the best — [but] I've got no advice!"
Clive Owen mingled with a few fellow British entertainers last night at an Audi event in London. He's home in the UK after a stint in NYC, where he worked on Blood Ties with costars Marion Cotillard and Mila Kunis. Being in the Big Apple also allowed Clive to check out some fun events, like the Belmont horse race and the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. Clive also welcomed his wife, Sarah-Jane Fenton, and their girls, Hannah and Sophie, to Manhattan for a Blue Man Group show. The family of four was photographed backstage with some of the performers in early June. Clive returned to England in time to check out Wimbledon two weeks ago. Yesterday's event, the launch of the digital showroom Audi City, gave Clive a chance to say hello to Thandie Newton, as well as singers Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Bryan Ferry.
Clive Owen hosted the fifth annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic this afternoon with polo player Nacho Figueras and Nacho's wife, Delfina Blaquier. The trio were among the first to arrive at the Jersey City, NJ, location for the match. It was the first time the space was used, since in years past, the polo match was held on New York's Governors Island. A long list of celeb guests were ferried over to Jersey, including Clive's Blood Ties costar Zoe Saldana, Minka Kelly, Padma Lakshmi, Once Upon a Time's Jennifer Morrison, and models like Jessica Stam, Alek Wek, and Hilary Rhoda. Rachel Zoe was among the last to arrive, bringing husband Rodger Berman and their son, Skyler, who was dressed for the occasion in a mini-striped suit. Rachel's friend and makeup artist Joey Maalouf went as well, and he kept a close eye on Skyler.
Clive admitted that this was actually his first polo match, and he was happy to come because he'll be in the Big Apple for the next month working on Blood Ties with director Guillaume Canet. In the VIP enclosure, he caught up with his fellow Brit Matthew Rhys. Matthew made the rounds with UK socialite Poppy Delevingne. It was a veritable UK fest — appropriate, considering that the Diamond Jubilee kicked off in London today. Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch was low-key as he said hello to friends, but there was a long line of ladies wanting to say hello to the actor, who's fresh off a stint on the set of the forthcoming Star Trek sequel.
Nacho, an Argentinian, has a close connection with Princes William and Harry, who are polo fans. Harry was actually able to attend the Veuve Clicquot event two years ago. Nacho is close with both princes and told us about playing with them. He said, "I really believe in what they do. They're two wonderful kids that really believe in and support their charities, and it's been an honor for me to help them through the years with that. I wish them 60 more years, and they are, most importantly for me, great kids." Nacho added that the thing he wanted most today was to win, and he helped lead his Black Watch team to a victory over the opposing polo team, Nespresso.
Nicole Kidman chose a black-and-white checkered dress for her latest Cannes Film Festival look. She stepped out this morning for a photocall with Hemingway & Gellhorn costar Clive Owen after also promoting The Paperboy. Nicole, Zac Efron, and Matthew McConaughey made multiple stops for their project, including the red-carpet premiere and an appearance on Le Grand Journal. Nicole will be back in the spotlight later today when Hemingway & Gellhorn screens at the Grand Palais. Matthew will also return to the festival's famous carpet for Mud, which also stars Reese Witherspoon. Reese arrived in the South of France with her husband, Jim Toth, just yesterday and we can't wait to see the glamorous looks she chooses for her many events. Nicole, Reese, Zac, and Matthew may all be friendly at the festival, but they're in direct competition for the top spot in the PopSugar 100. Make sure to play the PopSugar 100 faceoff game for the chance to win $2,500 in cash!
