Hollywood veteran Lauren Bacall is keen to work with hunky CLIVE OWEN - and has saucily announced she "has her eye on him".

The 80-year-old screen star is known for her fondness of British men, having recently admired the likes of John Le Carre and Hugh Grant, whom she described as "not a great actor... but he doesn't have to be with looks like that".

But she has since set her sights on the dashing King Arthur actor as her next leading man.

She says, "I would like to work with Clive.

"I have got my eye on him but then I'm not the only one!"
