Any father that spends his days telling journalists how much he looks forward to staying home with his family deserves to be awarded our Sugardaddy title. Clive Owen, whose first action-thriller — The International — opens this weekend, recently said:
"I've been traveling so much that I want to hang at home. We used to take the family on holidays and adventures, but more and more, I want to go home and stay at home. I love getting up in the morning and taking them to school and picking them up and hanging with them. In the last year or two, if I go away for a certain amount of time to make a film, I make sure I have down time at home to keep the balance right."
The British father of two — Hannah, 12, and Eve, 9 — has been in the public eye since he began starring in BBC television hits in the late 80s. Now the leading man in worldwide blockbusters and protective father says he does not allow his daughters to view his R-rated films and won't until they are 18. Given that the flick is opening this weekend, and another — Duplicity, in which he reunites with Julia Roberts — is set to debut next month, his girls will have quite a viewing party in a few years.
