When looking at the ruggedly handsome yet incredibly sophisticated mug of Clive Owen, the last things that comes to mind are anti-aging creams and under-eye moisturizers but evidently Lancome disagrees. The beauty company has chosen Clive as the face of a new line of men's grooming products. In the works is a fragrance and anti-aging skin-care line. Here's more:
Lancome chose Owen, who stars in Universal's "Children of Men," not because of his tall, dark and handsome look but because of his talent and work ethic, said Odile Roujol, general manager of Lancome International.
"The way he has built his career so far, privileging the quality of the director rather than the high-profile nature of a role, makes us feel very confident in the fact that if he chose to accept this collaboration with Lancome, then it truly means our partnership was meant to be," Roujol said Tuesday in a statement.
Yeah right -- they chose him for his talent and work ethic and not his good looks! Clive is an amazing actor, but do they think we're stupid?
