Researching for 'Trust', Clive Owen Interviewed Rape Victim Parents

The British actor admits to have seen how deep the pain of such incident can inflict after interviewing a couple who had experienced what his character goes through in the film.

Movie star spent time with the parents of a teenage rape victim while researching his new role in hard-hitting new movie "". In the film, the Brit plays a father who becomes a vigilante after his daughter is assaulted by an Internet sex predator, and the "deep pain" of such a violation became really apparent when he interviewed a couple who had experienced what his character goes through in the film, for real.

"In this film we are a very happy family and this looks like the kid you don't worry about; she looks smart and together but anyone can be vulnerable," he tells WENN. "Kids of a certain age are naive, they haven't lived long enough; they're emotionally immature and because of that are vulnerable.

"We met a couple, where their daughter had gotten into a situation on the Internet where she'd been raped six years ago, and the second they started talking about it, I saw how deep the pain of something like this is."
