CLIVE OWEN on DETAILS OCTOBER 2009
The star of The Boys Are Back is the kind of be-stubbled brooder whom straight men find authentic and their wives find irresistable. But the most grounded guy in movies hasn't let it go to his head

Clive Owen is walking through Highgate Cemetery in North London, a few hundred yards from his house, in one of the city's leafier suburbs. It's a fresh June day, and Owen, having recently completed a movie, has a lazy family summer stretching before him. But right now the British actor is contemplating mortality in a sprawling, run-down Victorian graveyard. "How much does it cost to be buried here?" he asks. Had he posed this question in 1839, when the graveyard was established, the answer would have been about three British pounds for a biggish plot. Nowadays you're looking at £12,000 to £15,000.
