approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Clive's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Clive Owen comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Clive Owen - his real motivation, which describes the kind of person he is at heart and where his true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Clive Owen" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Clive a little better. This page describes the disguise Owen wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Owen's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Clive Owen wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Clive Owen wants, Clive Owen usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Clive wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Clive Owen functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Clive Owen usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Owen approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Clive Owen also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Owen. When Clive Owen commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Clive Owen is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Clive Owen as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Clive Owen also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Clive Owen appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if he has their best interests at heart. Because others view Owen as a tolerant, understanding, and even wise person, they may also turn to him for counsel.
Clive Owen appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Clive Owen may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Clive Owen appears contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Owen may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Clive fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Clive Owen is likely to grow in confidence, because he will learn to depend more on his own evaluation of himself.
Clive Owen comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. He is quite curious and interested in the people and events around him, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Owen also needs to be busy and active, and he moves quickly. Clive Owen also appears to be restless. Keeping his mind or hands occupied helps with that.
He is able to control his feelings and conduct himself in a very proper manner. Because of his inner shyness, Clive Owen tends to separate himself from others and gives the impression that he does not want to be talked to.
