The Loki star revealed he had his two boys on a “single-dad schedule.”

Owen shares Robert, 10, with his ex-girlfriend Jade Duell, with whom he reportedly split up with back in 2011. 

He also shared a six-year-old son named Finn with fitness trainer Caroline Lindqvist.

The French Dispatch actor attempted to trim the fingernails of Finn – the “younger one” mentioned in the article – as the boy said: “Don’t go below the line!”

Owen said: “Just relax!”

When he was done with the child’s nails, the comedic actor added: “What do you say?”

After his youngest child pretended to thank his father, he then turned to his other sibling – supposedly Robert – and told his brother: “For nothing.”

When he heard that snide remark, Owen confessed to the interviewer: “It’s funny how we get cast in these roles, because it seems like just yesterday I was the one muttering ‘for nothing,’ and now I’m the person in this role. 

“Once you’re an adult, you think childhood was so innocent and beautiful, but you forget.”

The movie star added: “That’s why I liked in Last Tango when she’s talking about how beautiful being a kid is, and Brando says, ‘Is it beautiful to be made into a tattletale? Or be forced to admire authority?’”

He concluded: “That’s a big part of being a kid: being broken.”

Later in the interview, Owen rode an e-bike to a sports complex to meet “his older boy” – referring to Robert.

His eldest shouted at him: “Hey, Dad!”


Back in July, Owen’s ex Varunie Vongsvirates shared a rare photo of the actor’s lookalike love child Lyla, two. 

Varunie looked elegant in a white summer dress while she carried Lyla, who wore a pink and white outfit, on her hip.

Varunie claimed she begged the Bottle Rocket star to get involved in Lyla’s life.

She told Daily Mail that her former lover was “not involved at all” with their little girl and “has never” even met her.

Owen’s ex added: “He helps financially but it’s never been about that.

“Lyla needs a father. It’s ironic how [Owen] keeps getting these father roles, he’s playing a father in his new movie, and he’s never met his own daughter.”


Back in 2018, Owen took a paternity test which proved he was the father of Varunie’s baby.

A source told Us Weekly: “He even checked the no visitation box in court in June.

“He does not want to visit [and does not] want any custody of her.”
