My daughter and I were watching television together and a commercial came on. I hear her say, “He’s hot” and think, “Yes, he is.” I guess it goes to prove that rugged handsome men still reach across all age groups.
The first time I saw Clive was on a plane. Unfortunately, not in real life. King Arthur was playing and while I had heard middling reviews about the film and a lot of complaints about the historical basis upon which this Arthurian movie was based, I couldn’t drag my eyes off the screen! It was a long long flight, so I got to watch it twice.
Of course, I waited for the Director’s Cut of the movie, which has a little more romance than the original release. That’s the one thing that this film needed — a little more romance between gorgeous Clive and equally devastating Keira Knightley. There was real chemistry between them!
So, Clive is this Monday’s Guilty Pleasure. Go out and rent/buy King Arthur. You will not be sorry that you did.
Clive is currently starring in Shoot ‘Em Up with Paul Giamatta and Monica Belluci. The site describes it as a “gritty action-paced thriller” although upon seeing the trailers, hubby and I thought it was a spoof. Hmm. Possibly a problem, right? If anybody goes to see the movie when it comes out on Sept. 7, please write back and let us know what you thought.
P.S. — I’ll be chatting today at noon at eharlequin.com as well as chatting tonight at 9 at the NJRW/Noveltalk Chat room (http://www.njromancewriters.org/njrwchat.html). Stop by for a chance to discuss SECRET AGENT REUNION and to possibly win a fun prize!
