Clive Owen stars opposite Nicole Kidman in the HBO film "Hemingway & Gellhorn." Owen also recently starred in "Killer Elite," opposite Jason Statham, Robert De Niro and Yvonne Strahovski.

Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe Award-winner Clive Owen has taken the big screen by storm, making quite a name for himself in the UK, the United States and around the world. It was in 2005 that he proved himself a big-screen star by winning a Golden Globe Award and picking up an Academy Award nomination for his role as Larry in Mike Nichols' "Closer."

The British actor first came onto the scene in several British and American telefilms. In 1991, he starred in his first big hit, the UK television series "Chancer." He then went on to prove himself to American audiences co-starring with Catherine Zeta-Jones in Jack Gold's CBS telefilm adaptation of "The Return of the Native." More recently, he starred as detective Ross Tanner in the BBC telefilm "Second Sight," which aired on PBS's "Mystery!" Owen's other UK telefilm credits also include Andrew Grieve's "Lorna Doone," Andy Wilson's "An Evening with Gary Lineker," Diarmuid Lawrence's "The Echo" and David Blair's "Split Second."

Owen's early feature films truly outline his versatility as an actor. He made his film debut in Beeban Kidron's "Vroom" in 1988, in which he restores a classic American car to take off on the road with co-star David Thewlis. In 1991, he went on to play a brother who acts upon his incestuous feelings in Stephen Poliakoff's "Close My Eyes." In 1997, he continued to play complex characters when he starred as a reckless homosexual in corrupt pre-war Germany, who finds unconditional love while in a Nazi war camp in Sean Mathias' "Bent." In 2001 and 2002 respectively, he went on to star in Joel Hershman's offbeat British comedy "Greenfingers," and Robert Altman's star-studded "Gosford Park."

Owen's next films only added to his already brilliant and diverse choice of film credits. He chose "Beyond Borders," a romantic war drama co-starring Angelina Jolie; Mike Hodges' thriller "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead"; the action war drama "King Arthur";and "SinCity," which co-starred Bruce Willis, Benicio Del Toro, Rosario Dawson and Jessica Alba.

Owen was seen in fall 2005 in "Derailed," opposite Jennifer Aniston, and went on to star in Spike Lee's "Inside Man,"opposite Denzel Washington and Jodie Foster. In 2006, Owen starred in Alfonso Cuarón's action-packed film "Children of Men,"opposite Julianne Moore and Michael Caine. The film was critically acclaimed, as well as Owen's performance. He next starred in Michael Davis' suspense "Shoot 'Em Up," in which he starred opposite Paul Giamatti, and in "Elizabeth: the Golden Age," in which he portrayed Sir Walter Raleigh, the love interest opposite Cate Blanchett, who reprised her role as Queen Elizabeth.

He recently starred in David Schwimmer's "Trust," with Catherine Keener, Viola Davis and Noah Emmerich, "Duplicity," opposite Julia Roberts, "The Boys Are Back in Town," filmed in Australia, and "The International" as an Interpol agent, opposite Naomi Watts. Clive recently finished production on Juan Carlos Fresnadillos' "Intruders."

Owen is also an acclaimed stage actor. His stage work includes portraying Romeo at the Young Vic Theatre; starring in Sean Mathias' staging of Noël Coward's "Design for Living"; and playing the lead role in Patrick Marber's original production of "Closer" at the Royal National Theatre in 1997. In fall 2001, he starred in London in Laurence Boswell's staging of Peter Nichols' "A Day in the Death of Joe Egg."
