If you don’t have a crush on Clive Owen then we can’t be friends. But if you’re sane, then you’ll join me in celebrating the hotness that is Clive in a special edition o f#mancrushmonday.
Clive will be the star of Campari‘s Red Diaries, coming out in January 2017. Clive joins a long line of sexy celebs who sizzled for Campari, including Kate Hudson, Eva Green, Uma Thurman, Salma Hayek and Eva Mendes. The 2017 Campari(r)evolution will be themed as ‘Red Diaries’, which brings to life 12 cocktail stories, inspired by the artistry of 14 international bartenders, directed by Paolo Sorrentino.
On writing and directing Killer in Red, Paolo Sorrentino comments, “Campari is an Italian icon which has garnered global love and attention due its strong, intrinsic sense of aesthetic and well-defined style – the very same qualities I pride myself on. With this year’s campaign embracing the realm of film, I really wanted to ensure I harnessed the theme of storytelling with an intriguing intensity. Working with Clive was fantastic – his compelling presence and enthusiasm allowed me to create a short film which I hope proves fresh, inspiring and imaginative.”
Says Clive, “I was honoured to be chosen to shoot Killer in Red as part of the 2017 Campari Red Diaries campaign, particularly since this year represents the brand’s first foray into the world of cinematography and film. Working with Paolo was a real pleasure.”
You can see the film itself early next year, but until then, and we’ve got the behind the scenes shot from the sexy short film.
