British actor Clive Owen canceled a number of appointments at the Cannes Film Festival this week after he was trapped in an elevator with his daughters.

The Sin City star attended the French movie event to promote his new film Hemingway & Gellhorn with co-star Nicole Kidman, but the trip took a turn for the worse when he got stuck in a packed lift at the Hotel Majestic Barriere.

Owen was with his two young daughters Hannah and Eve and two people had fainted by the time they were freed, according to Britain's The Sun.

The actor then canceled a number of press interviews so he could comfort his girls, who were upset by the ordeal.

When told of the incident, Owen's co-star Kidman told reporters, "I couldn't have been in there with my kids, how awful."
