Clive Owen is in Rome and nobody told me?

Okay I usually don't post twice in one day but this is important. ha

I was walking past the Pantheon the other day and saw a location shoot. I didn't realize it was the movie with Clive and Julia Roberts. I thought that movie was shooing in NYC now.

Anyhoo. Clive is here in Rome. Perhaps it's for the best I didn't know earlier. Something like the following might have happened:

Me: Hello Clive, it's Ragazza. We had dinner with (former boss) to talk about blah, blah, blah, project? How are you?

Clive: (thinking to himself) "Who is this woman and where is security?"

My mom's bff who's in her late 70s, has SUCH a crush on Clive. It's hysterical.

LuLu said...

I'm very much a fan of Clive Owen! :P

Linda said...

Oh ma gawd! Is that a recent picture? That man is FOINE!! Hey, I think I might come and visit you soon. No ulterior motives. None whatsoever...

Claudia said...

oooh, hello honey!!

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

anon - I know. I thought they were still on location in NYC.

glamah16 - yes he is.

tracey k - ha. I wish that was my balcony!

jen - your mom's bff has excellent taste.

lulu - as am I. He is also very nice and a great actor. Loved him in Croupier.

linda - yes it's recent. I think it was taken this week. Who knew he was in such good shape? Foine is right.

claudia - exactly :)

Eryn said...

ahhhhhhh he's so hot!

gibber said...

Hellooooo luver!

He is SO SMOKIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

eyrn - It really should be against the law for one man to be that gorgeous. It reminds me of how I felt when I saw Denzel in Mississippi Masala.

gibber - I knew you would appreciate this lovely photo. I don't think he has anything on.

Flames just shot off my computer screen. Hotness!

ok...he is really hot, but that is not why I am commenting. I wanted to give you my kudos on your blog. You have a witty way of dealing with the obscurities and adventures of living in a foreign country! Way to find the humor in it all...I haven't always (living in Perugia for the last four years). Oy, and can you let me know how the hairdresser search went? Cheers

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

texas - are you going to be okay? ha

ninety9 - yes he is doing it well. bravo!

ms. violetta - you're welcome.

los angelista - oh snap. you better call the fire department.

anon - thanks for stopping by and for the compliments. I think the fact that my parents were foreign helped me make the transition.

I haven't gone to the hairdresser yet. I took my twists out and I'm not due for a trim for another month or so. I will def. post about that. Another commenter was kind enough to leave a list of places, I will investigate.

He is perfection.
Loved him in Closer.

To Anonymous who lives in Perugia:

I am contemplating moving to Perugi or Bari or Florence or perhaps Rome, to take some courses in photography. I'm already a published photographer and writer but would like to shoot more food photography as well as portraits.

Would you answer some questions about Perugia so that I may be more informed?

You can email me at:

Thank you so much!

Sherry said...

THANKS for the pic!

erin said...

HAHAHAHA!!! I love this post....I was just reading along and scrolled down, and it was over. period. Great place to end, made me laugh so hard. Hopefully you'll run into him.

Just watched Elizabeth: the Golden Age with him...great movie.

wordtryst said...

Oh. My. G...

What's with this guy crossing your path like that? And where did you get that yummy photo?

Ah, Mississippi Masala! I was in a drooling fog for all of that movie.

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

nearandfar - I agree. I bought the CLOSER DVD just for his scene when he tells off Julia Roberts.

sherry - you are welcome.

erin - :) I haven't seen that movie yet. I really like the first ELIZABETH.

wordtryst - Wasn't Denzel looking outrageously good in that movie? The walk, the smile.

The photo has been all over the Internet.
