Check out this selection of the best Michael Owen film jokes after the former England star admitted on Twitter that he hated them and confessed to only having seen eight movies in his entire life.

The player-turned-pundit tweeted the news that he had just watched his eighth movie ever, accompanied by a bluntly put #HateFilms hashtag and then proceeded to list each one he’d been persuaded to endure.

Watched my eighth ever film on the flight home. Must have been bored. #HateFilms

Pesky films, getting in the way of Michael Owen's riveting conversation.

Feels like Michael Owen finding films boring and monotonous is so ironic Alanis Morrisette should be working it into her set-list.

Michael Owen hates films. Can't abide them. He's watched a few & said: "Yep, all well & good but not for me, thanks"- he's a cultural eunuch

What does Michael Owen do all day?

Idea for the weekend: Stand outside Michael Owen's gaff with a megaphone shouting film titles. Use upward inflection to insinuate enquiry.

Michael Owen has only ever watched 8 films. He claims he finds them boring, but I reckon it is they who find him boring.
