The 44-year-old Closer star says that while it can be “tough” to be apart from his wife Sarah-Jane Fenton and their daughters Hannah, 12, and Eve, 9, they always make it work.
“But all that juggling is made very easy because Sarah-Jane is so cool and gives me the space and the freedom,” Clive adds. “She has maybe once in my entire career at some point called and said: ‘You need to stop and take some time off. You’ve been away too much.’ I listened to her straight away and did that straight away.”
“I picked a good one,” he says of his wife of 13 years.
So what do his girls think of their movie star dad? Well, let’s just say they keep him grounded!
“They always laugh at me,” Clive admits. “They don’t take me seriously in the slightest. They think I’m a joke.”
Clive has two new films in theaters: The International co-starring Naomi Watts and Duplicity alongside Julia Roberts.
