Owen Wilson Was Blue

August 28th, 2007 // 6 Comments

The Insider is reporting that the Butterscotch Stallion, Owen Wilson, had actually had been suffering from depression preceding his recent suicide attempt. Nearly seven years ago, the “Me, You and Dupree” actor sought treatment at the Hazelden rehab center in Minnesota for his depression. And now, Wilson’s holed up in the Cedars Sinai hospital since his self-inflicted injuries. Since then, he’s also recently been visited by his two brothers, as well as Samuel L. Jackson. TMZ spotted the “Snakes on a Plane” star visiting the hospital where Wilson is staying. Now, how could someone not be cheered by a visit from Samel L.? I know I would. And we’re not even friends. Not yet…

    It’s so sad he tried to kill himself, but in a lot of ways it was necessary. I hope Owen gets the help he needs, because he really does have a good life and a supportive family. He’ll get through this. This attempt was the final straw, thankfully his family is there. Good luck to him.

    I’ve been diagnosed as a major depressive my whole life, even as a kid but I didin’t know it at the time, I was just always sad. I went through alot of therapy tried meds (bad side effects but they did help). I feel so much better now altough I have my moments. I can understand what Luke was thinking at the time. I never tried commiting suicide but I had so many ways planned out. The saddest thing with Luke is that because he’s so funny, he didn’t show it all, we seen was the outside. Crazy Pauly Shore once said alot of comediens hide their depression through humor so people don’t see the pain. This depression condition is hard for people to understand if they haven’t gone through it; so for those who don’t know what it’s like, please don’t judge him. We love you Luke, keep fighting.

    Ouch! It’s *Owen* who is in the hospital – not his brother Luke.

    Sending love & healing wishes to Owen.
