Actor Clive Owen has credited David Bowie's song The Stars (Are Out Tonight) for helping him establish his mood for a drunken scene in new movie Words And Pictures.

The Sin City star plays a troubled author in the film and insisted on having the song played while he filmed a scene in which he had to wreck his house with a tennis racquet and ball.

He says, "I needed some music to inspire me and I asked (director) Fred Schepisi to play this track and play it loud and I did the most enjoyable scene of trashing this house."

Schepisi liked the song so much for the scene, he decided to keep it in the movie.

He continues, "(He) was so used to the song, he had to get it for the movie. I was very happy about it."
