Report: Owen Wilson Attempted Suicide

The National Enquirer is reporting that Owen Wilson has attempted suicide. Wow. I don’t know what to say other than damn you Kate Hudson (just kidding)!

Actor Owen Wilson was hospitalized after attempting suicide, sources tell the NATIONAL ENQUIRER and Star magazine exclusively.

Wilson was transported to St. John’s hospital in Santa Monica , Calif. on Sunday, August 26, by ambulance. Sources tell the ENQUIRER and Star that he sliced his left wrists and took an indeterminate amount of pills.

He was discovered by a family member who summoned help. Police and an ambulance responded to a 911 call from Owen’s house around noon on Sunday. His wrist was sutured and bandaged at the hospital.

The ENQUIRER and Star broke the story of Owen’s hospitalization earlier Sunday and revealed that he was being transferred from St. John’s after being stabilized. The publications learned that he was going to be detoxed.

Owen was brought in to St. John’s in very serious condition. Police were on the scene immediately as was a criminal defense attorney, believed to be working for Wilson. Some of Owen’s family was with him.

Thoughts and prayers Owen.

    Somebody please drop a net over Owen, Amy Winehouse (she could be dead any day) Kate Moss and Pete, Lohan, Hilton, Nicole Richie (at least we save her baby if it isn’t brain damaged already) and all the rest of the drug addled Hollywood crowd. Geesh. Isn’t it disgusting? Fame, fortune (money) and lots of it. What do I do? Oh, I’ll just become a drug addict…………..

    I had no idea that Owen was an addict…..so sad..proof that money and fame do not mean happiness..get well soon

    Doood…..?

  4. “Wow. I don’t know what to say other than damn you Kate Hudson (just kidding)!”

    Funny Michael, that was my first thought as well. lol

    I’m sure he’s fine. They said the wrist wound was superficial so this was probably just a cry for help or something. Oh and fyi just because he took a bottle of pills in the attempt doesn’t necessarily mean he is some kind of addict… Dunno wtf his problem really is but I seriously doubt he was still pineing away after Kate in reality though.

    Note this day in history: The Nat’l Enquirer actually broke a story that was remotely true. I don’t know if it was drugs or suicide, but something about this story is somewhat accurate. I can’t friggin’ believe it. What’s next? Britney’s comeback?

    How strange. Wilson’s public image was as maybe the least angst-y person in Hollywood. I guess you never know.

    Hopefully Will Ferrell won’t have to crash his funeral anytime soon.

    That’s tragic and it proves once again we never know what’s really going on behind closed doors.
    I don’t think at all he was an addict. I ‘d rather think this is a serious cry for help or a real suicide attempt. Anyway I hope he gets all the support he needs and he recovers quickly.

    You should read this. It’s an interview Owen did with Blender where he talks about only recently thinking drugs were OK.

    It’s such a shame…Hope he’s OK and realizes what’s truly important.

    who really cares? he doesnt care about u! its his life, if he wants to die then let him go

  10. I can’t believe that something like that could happen to him. But my thoughts go out to his family. Owen your fans love you!! Especially my son does Lightening McQueen!!

    It’s easy for us to sit and say that fame and money do not equal happiness. I think it depends on whose hands are holding the money and fame. People who make their millions as actors, actresses and singers tend to be very attention-seeking, histrionic-type personalities who are, perhaps, more likely to seek out and become addicted to drugs.

    I wouldn’t even know where to get drugs and I live in Miami! It depends on the type of person you are, and the fame-seeking youth of Hollywood are basically all the same in terms of their attention-seeking behavior and need for constant reassurance.

    It probably finally occured to him that he has no talent, he’s frightfully unattractive and has a weiner for a nose.

    No, you idiots. He’s not a fucking drug addict. Even if he was, it would make perfect sense, considering his occupation. Eventually one must become sick of existing simply to serve as an entertainment, an amusement, as something the public can laugh at. He must be miserables.

    With a large enough dose of almost any kind of pills, you may achieve a very quick bodily overwhelm and be unconscious before you die. Fast and easy. He slit his wrist; that was the back-up plan in case the pills didn’t work. Unfortunately for him, neither did the job. However, perhaps he’ll switch careers and do something that makes him feel better about himself.

    Owen Wilson is an incredible man! He is one of my most favorite actors! I do not believe he is a drug addict, you just cannot compare him to Hilton, Spears or Richie, that is totally unfair. He has made us smile, laugh and cry. The world would truley be dented if he was not around to make some of our days brighter. Owen I love you dearly and hope everything is ok. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

  15. to jessica: its disgusting that u can say that about someone.. just let them kill themself.. you dont know what theyre going through.. you dont know the torment and suffering there dealing with. that what a struggle it is for these people with depression to do the simplest things in their lives.. the day to day activities, like even getting out of bed, dont even get done because there is no hope, no feeling, no reason for living.. its pretty ignorant and sad of u to say that and i hope you think before u speak next time hunny.. atleast educate urself a little bit..

    for jeanine white: its also ignorant of you aswell to stereotype these people with fame and money as drug addled “stars”, like i said earlier.. you dont know whats going on in their lives.. you dont know what such great pressure theyre dealing with. if u dont like it, dont talk about it.. its as simple as that..

    my heart goes out to owen wilson and anyone else out there that is living in their own thunderstorm, just dont forget that after the thunder and lightening, a rainbow appears..
    peace out x

  16. The Black Hole

    OWEN. Please please, let’s all give him this time to “come back home within himself”.

    I committed suicide 2X in 5 days. (long story) However, I want to really open up and say. THere is a real Black hole. I can not imagine I did what I did. But when you are in the hole…. and no one seems around, you just let go.
    Please give your heartfelt support for Owen. To owen. I had to stay in the pysch ward for 2 weeks with round the clock “baby sitters.” I was 50. THis has been weighing on my heart, and now that I have finally broken my silence. I did this for Owen. So I could give a personal side of this. Please just leave him alone. He has the help he needs where he is.

    When someone decides to judge this action. Think about how many of us all have been so low in life, we knew this would pass. In the hole you do not have the ability to remember this. Hence, the action so many think is selfish. Contrare’, there really is a black hole that swirls and sucks you in. God Speed Owen. You will be fine. This is the best time of my life now. I needed this life “HICCUP”.

    After 5 days on life supports in CCU, and leaving my body, I can, with experience tell you it could happen to any of us.

    “Inventory your Seeds, not your Needs.” Take the time for all of us to do the Oprah way. Do a random act of kindness. You are planting seeds for others.

    Elie, thank you for your comments…you seem like a beautiful caring person.

    My heart goes out to Owen’s family….I wish them all the best during this difficult time. And to Owen; I hope he can find happiness for himself….in this life or another.

    I tried the same act a few nights ago, unfortunately i awoke from a long hard sleep. God works in mysterious ways, as I took over 22 sleeping pills. Let the guy feel his pain, rediculing owen? How is your life any better sadder greater worse than his? He may be a part of hollywood but his demeanor and huge heart cry for others who hurt. I’ve seen it time and again as he’s from my home town. Look in the mirror, you may not like what YOU see.

  20. to chris robin… the only thing i hate in this world is hate..

    love one another.. dont judge..

  21. Uhm, fuck you Tom.
    First of all.

    No matter if Owen seriously slit his wrists, or if he just needed some help..that’s fucked up. He needed something.

    Owen, if you read this,
    we’re ALL behind you.
    Your fans, your co-workers,
    Fellow actors & actresses,
    we love you! You’re so funny and talented.

    Please don’t leave us just yet.
    You’re too young & we don’t want another heath or anna nicole.

    all the love,
    Diana.
