The very first movie Boy and I ever saw together was the action flick King Arthur. It’s generally forgettable aside from the fact that it stars Keira Knightley as a war-paint smeared Guinevere and Clive Owen as a scruffy looking Arthur.
Anyway, we were talking in the parking lot after the movie and Boy told me he had recognized Clive Owen (this was kind of before his was CLIVE OWEN) from some game called Privateer 2 he and Logan had played as kids. As I had never heard of it before, I was kind of skeptical how you could recognize someone from a video game, but since Boy was cute and a good kisser, I didn’t want to spoil the mood by questioning his video game judgement.
However, recently, the topic came up again and when I questioned it this time, he made me pull up You Tube clips of the game to see for myself. And sure enough, there he was . . . except kind of not because he looked like this.
Is it just me or does 1996 Clive Owen look kind of like a rejected Clockwork Orange Droog and not at all sexy? I think this is one of those cases where aging actually works in someone’s favour.
2008 Clive Owen – That’s better!
He’s still not really my type, but I can at least acknoweldge, at this rate, he’s going to be a major silver fox.
