The couple play lovers in the new movie, and Jolie couldn't help but fall in love with the British actor while they were working together.
She thinks Owen will bring a fresh, fatherly feel to the 007 franchise should he take over from Pierce Brosnan, as has been reported.
She says, "I don't think we've had a really great strong leading man like this in a long time.
"He's a great guy, great family man, two kids, a wife. He's lovely."
She adds, "I just saw him for rehearsals and it was a few days after his son was born, and all he could talk about was being a dad. He's just a crazy, happy dad."24/10/2003 19:18
