The 25 Fittest Men in the World

24.      Clive Owen

Talk about a big star. Literally. At well over six feet, Owen towers above Hollywood’s typical pint-size heroes. From King Arthur to Sin City to Children of Men, he has fought his way through the past, the present, and into the future.

To prepare for such demanding roles, the Coventry native trains with a London kickboxer. “You have to get physically fit for any film you do,” he told MF. “They’re quite grueling shoots.”

While he regularly goes to the gym, “when I am getting ready to film, I train much more intensively,” he confesses. Of course, once the cameras start rolling there’s no time for working out. But there’s little need. His role as a machine-gun-toting do-gooder in Shoot ‘Em Up was particularly hard on his body. “It was all action, and there was lots of ropework,” he says. “That was very physical.” His main inspiration for training so hard? “My fitness regimen is completely dictated by, ‘Do I have to take my top off in this movie?'” Fit, and smart, too.
