Michael Owen doesn't like watching films.

"We knew how much he hated films at Liverpool," Carragher told ShortList magazine.

"I'd ask him why, he'd say: 'Well it's not real is it? Why bother when it's not real?' And I was like 'Oh my God!'."

Owen also doesn't like books, and sometimes gives the impression that he's particularly fond of football either. We can now add opening bags on live television to the list of things the former England forward doesn't like.
