CLIVE Owen hates playing the fame game.

The 47-year-old actor insists he didn’t get into Hollywood for the fame and admits it was difficult to adjust to his newfound celebrity status when he first rose to notoriety in 1990 with ITV drama ‘Chancer’.

Clive told the Mail on Sunday’s Live magazine: ‘’I never wanted to be a movie star. And I didn’t become an actor to become famous. I genuinely didn’t. It was always theatre for me. Chancer’ was a baptism of fire. It’s very weird to go from obscurity to suddenly being in newspapers. When somebody is hot, everyone wants a piece of it.                  –ES
