Owen Wilson Suicide Attempt!!!!!

| Filed under: Owen Wilson


This is just incredibly shocking.

Owen Wilson's emergency hospitalization on Sunday was the result of a suicide attempt, The National Enquirer and Star magazine are exclusively reporting.

Sources tell the mags that Wilson sliced his left wrists and took an indeterminate amount of pills.

Wow. Wow. Wow.

Owen was discovered by a family member who summoned help.

Police and an ambulance responded to a 911 call from Wilson's house in Los Angeles around noon on Sunday.

Owen is said to be in stable condition at the moment.

This is hardcore.

Suicide is never a good option, kids.

DON'T do it!


National Enquirer editor-in-chief David Perel tells PerezHilton.com….

"Owen Wilson has now been transferred from St. John's to another Los Angeles area hospital. His brothers Andrew and Luke are with him.

"Andrew found him after the suicide attempt and called an ambulance. Both of Owen's wrists were slashed superficially and Owen had taken an overdose of pills.

"Owen was found with a nearly empty bottle of pills next to him. He was at his house in Santa Monica."

    The tears of a clown. Look at all the funniest guys N gals and the rate of self destruction. Some of the funniest folks are the saddest. Maybe his clock is ticking and he wants to settle down. Maybe he felt that in his own death he would become even more famous. Who really knows what was on his mind, but we can only hope he gets help.

    this is the reason i love Perez. we can all have a good laugh at stupid celebrities, but when it comes down to it, i love that there is real concern for these celebrities who are in states of crisis, whether it's Brit Brit, Amy Winehouse, or Owen. I hope that everyone with problems like these gets the help that they need.

  3. Geez says – reply to this


    I hate to presume, but I wonder if his dependency on drugs made him do this. Sometimes when it's difficult to overcome these bad habits people see no other way out. Why on earth would he try to off himself?

  4. audrina says – reply to this


    i hope he's okay…..

    how do you have 2 left wrists?

    just asking ;)

  5. p10 says – reply to this



    Death becomes the better option!

  6. typo police says – reply to this


    so he slashed both left wrists then?

  7. Lola says – reply to this


    Oh golly. I lost two friends to suicide this year, and I will tell you, it fucking SUCKS. It's a catch twenty two though, is it the act of ultimate bravery, slipping into the unknown, or cowerdice and not being able to confront your problems. I hate suicide, it's almost to hard to go on after losing someone this way. NEVER DO IT KIDS, too many people need you. No matter what you think.

  8. Cheri says – reply to this


    Wow. Can't stand the guy but never saw this one coming. I hope he gets help.

  9. xoxo says – reply to this


    There was a rumor that Owen was abused as a kid by his father beating him up a lot. That's why Owen has a big uneven nose, his father broke his nose. Sources say that Luke wasn't attacked by his dad but he watched his big brother getting a lot of beating and couldn't do anything about it.

    It's really sad. I found that abused children always grow up to become very depressed adults, no exception what so ever.

  10. Lauren says – reply to this


    I really hope he is okay. He is one of my favorite actors. This goes to show you that you really don't know what's going on in everyone's head. He seemed perfectly fine/normal. Get well soon!!

  11. You're NEVER 2 Young 2 Die says – reply to this


    It's a cry for help, I hope someone is listening. Owen should realize that historically slitting one's wrists and taking pills is not the best way to kill himself. If he really had wanted to kill himself he would have shot his brains out and done it proper. I can only surmise that he wants to get someone's attention–sad that he has to go to such lengths. He needs professional help. I hope he seeks and gets it.

  12. b says – reply to this


    First, if that fucker wants to kill himself, fine. He should have left his money to me though.

    And #161, I'm so sorry for you!

  13. Heidi says – reply to this


    do you think he did this to avoid doing a movie with jennifer?? you know, don't want to be identified with another loser. that is so sad~

  14. i love owen says – reply to this


    owen i love you! get well.

  15. lala says – reply to this


    this makes the suicide attempt scene in the royal tenenbaums seem extra creepy, (esp as it was owen's brother luke wilson who played the character.)

    owen wilson is so smart and talented. so many people love him. i hope he can find a way to live that gives him peace and happiness.

  16. Laury says – reply to this


    This is soooo incredibly sad… Just goes to show that money and fame don't necessarily make you happy… Get well, Owen!!

  17. Candy Barr says – reply to this


    The United Press International is reporting this, as well. It sounds legit.

    I am sure we are all thinking he is the last person anyone would think would do this.

  18. Cindy says – reply to this


    Owen is such a genuinely likable actor…if this is true, hope he gets the help that he needs…my prayers are with him, cuz I adore him…

  19. ohboyohboy2 says – reply to this


    remember when i said this, jerk:

    It’s now obvious to me that Perez Hilton doesn’t know all that he thinks he knows. I know for a fact that Owen’s hospitalization is not drug related. Even if were related to drugs, you should show more empathy for others.
    You are a sad despicable creature and I feel sorry that you need to make a living off other people’s misery even children. You are a materialistic wannabe despicable skunk whose 15 minutes of fame is nearing its end.

  20. j. says – reply to this


    OMG! how awful! it's just really sad to know that someone so talented, and so funny, would do something like that. god knows the reasons!
    just get well soon owen! i'll pray for you.

  21. California Girl says – reply to this


    From what I have enjoyed over the years, the Wilson brothers are very talented. Out of basic respect and compassion, I wish Owen nothing but clarity and recovery. To wish otherwise to anyone in that position is human interaction devoid of empathy.

  22. love owen says – reply to this


    #209 you're an asshole. what does jennifer have to do with this? you're just a psycho brangeloonie. get a life and stick to the story. im guessing you're the pathedic jenfraud under a different name…you are so clever! fucking moron i bet you're some ugly ass girl. get a life jackass. oh and i hope owen gets well.

  23. Robbie says – reply to this


    wow. he's so kute i hope he recovers quick! kisses

  24. Fidel Castro says – reply to this


    Fuck! He didn't succeed. These fucking celebrities have it SO easy .
    Whats so depressing about being rich-famous-getting free shit and banging hot girls? How depressing is that? You need someone to talk to walk out your door-buy a hooker.
    I have no sympathy for these assholes wanting to create more space for people who want to live.
    Try again . Jack Kevorkians out of jail-dial him bro,
    Every time I hear you making a movie I to want to slit my wrists.

  25. ohboyohboy2 says – reply to this


    OMG! Don't start rumors! Owen's dad is a great guy and his nose is NOT from being abused by his dad, you fool! Stop making up evil stories!

    1) Why on earth?
    2) Only selfish people attempt this crap. (Disappointed)
    3) If he needs help because he has depression or he is looking for attention this is the wrong way to be looking for that. A) Get help, ASK, because it might have been too late for him, if family would have not found him. B) Looking for attention? He doesn't need it he is an amazing actor and needs to see that the world loves Owen for Owen. Love life screwed up? Fix it, don't try and end your life, it's too short as it is there is someone for everyone. We love you OWEN, please get help and get better….. These celebrities need to get off the crack, and the drink and live life to it's fullest without the substances.

  27. Dana says – reply to this


    slit his wrists…uhhh, how very gay of him?
    Seriously, I wouldnt want to work with Jennifer Aniston either but I dont know if I would try to kill myself over it. SHE IS SO NOT WORTH TAKING YOUR LIFE!!muhahahaha

  28. perez is a hack says – reply to this


    this is pure craziness. you've got an a-list actor seemingly on top of the world and then out of nowhere he tries to end it all. just goes to show that depression affects everybody, and that despite fame and fortune happiness can still be hard to find.

  29. Giggly says – reply to this


    Aww Depression is a REALLY REALLY hard thing to over come
    I pray he feels better soon
    and realizes there are a lot of people out here who care about him !

  30. Theresa says – reply to this

  36. RJII says – reply to this


    sounds like a cry for help, cause if you want to die you will.

    oh well, money and fame just doesn't do it anymore. depression is a real big monkey. good luck

  37. wes says – reply to this

  39. Christine says – reply to this


    hey bitchhoe, your name says it all. Don't be a hater. You have no idea what depression is like.

  40. chloe says – reply to this


    Owen is an extremely talented Oscar nominated writer.
    He co-wrote, Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, Royal Tananbaums(Oscar nom)
    I love him…unfortunately even quiet geniuses fall prey to Hollywood BS.
    Get well buddy. Stay away from that Playboy Mansion & the strippers.

  41. nessa says – reply to this


    awe poor owen. i love him i think hes an awesome actor. i hope he gets the help he needs.

  42. Herbie: Full Throttle says – reply to this


    Having 2 left wrists is a heavy burden to bear.

  43. YumYum says – reply to this


    usually pills and a little wrist slashing are the suicide gestures of a female- and sometimes a gay male. Straight men who wish to kill themselves use guns. Pills are a girl thing and the superficial wrist scratching- well, that is beyond girly. Maybe he should investigate THAT part of his psyche first.

  44. Katie says – reply to this


    I'm sorry this happened, but are you guys really gonna believe the national enquirer????
    Seriously…come one
    But if it is true im sorry

  45. Margaret says – reply to this


    Thank you, Perez, for staying on top of this. Owen has a lot of fans who wish him the best and your coverage has been factual and non judgmental. Thanks again.

  46. suzycat says – reply to this


    love and prayers for you Owen…. may you go on and heal from whatever made you do this

  47. llllllllll says – reply to this


    Yes even famous/rich people go through shit.. he's not a fuck up.

  48. Hyde says – reply to this


    God. Owen and family, you're in my prayers.

  49. Meg says – reply to this


    I'm seriously shocked. It just comes to show: appearences can be decieving.

  50. christine says – reply to this


    that is horrible. i hope he gets the help he needs. good luck wilson family.

  51. Apres Ski says – reply to this


    He probably just found out he has to give his soul to the Devil if he wants to continue in movies, if not it's back to construction or hitting of old ladies for money.

    Too bad, Kate was such a nice girl . . . of course, we're not talking about Demi & Ashton. He just gave her his soul with his dick!!!

  52. JoeBotz says – reply to this


    If I had a nose that looked like a pecker I'd kill myself 2.This guy is a no talent.He must give alot of B.J.s to get so many parts.

  53. Buddy says – reply to this


    Must be really hard being really hot and rich and dating any woman you want. Wow.. really really hard life .. I feel really sorry for him

  54. Apres Ski says – reply to this


    Owen, dude, you are in my prayers tonight.

    Things will get better from here!!

  55. Ryan says – reply to this

  57. Bobby says – reply to this


    Hell no. We can't lose Owen. He's too cool.
    Losing Owen is not an option !!!
    Hell no.

  58. The Pope says – reply to this


    I pray that he's dead. I pray that his suicide attempt will be a success, as he wanted. God bless him, if he's dead, which I hope he is. I pray to Jesus that he's dead. His movies suck.

  59. Meagan says – reply to this


    So Sad! Get well Owen!

  60. sara says – reply to this


    Being rich, famous, talented and beautiful don't guarantee happiness.
    I guess we really do all "lead lives of quiet desperation".
    God Bless you, Owen. Get better…

  61. owen wilson says – reply to this


    I just could not look at my nose any more. Someone get me rhinoplasty pronto. Maybe in the future those of us with such abnormal deformities will get more attention and help. I would like to thank Cher for all her work with the Children’s Craniofacial Association. I wish I could have had the help I so desperately needed when I was younger.

  62. Osama bin Laden says – reply to this


    Owen, this is just SOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooo sad… I'm just SOoooooooooooo frickin' depressed over the loss of you. The thought of not watching your BAD movies in my cave ever again, we'll it's just too frickin' sad. I agree with the Pope, that it would be good if you were dead, and you can be a success as something.

  63. money does not buy happiness. says – reply to this


    :( This is very sad. I hope he can find some support from his friends and family.

  64. Average Jane says – reply to this


    WTF? That should be a PRIVATE situation. Poor guy. It totally sucks to be a celebrity!

  65. good lord says – reply to this


    Wow, this is way out of left field! sheesh, that is heartbreaking.

  66. sad people says – reply to this


    For those of you making insensitive comments–you're pitiful. How unhappy your lives must be to make fun of someone else's obviously serious pain.

  67. LV says – reply to this


    First off, I don't think it is right to be posting this sort of stuff on your blog, it is just way too personal of a matter.

    But regardless…it is awful news. But I am glad that he got to the hospital in time. I am a big fan of Owen…and I truly hope he gets better.

  68. Chloe says – reply to this


    WTF does $$ have ANYTHING to do with happiness?
    Obviously who said it..never had any.
    Inner peace is happiness!!!! Owen is obviously very troubled.
    Guns are not a guarantee you die either…idiot!
    besides..that hurts.
    Please get well Owen..Thanks Perez for such swift reporting!

    He's such a tortured, rich, overpaid, celebrity… it must be just AWFUL to be a celebrity… poor celebrities… it was the PAPARAZZI that did it!!

    What a jerk.

  71. carpo says – reply to this


    it just shows how much being rich, having a perfect body, a successful international career is worth nothing, when you're a piece of shit inside of you, well you're a piece of shit. please don't miss yourself next time, please die despicable fuckface

  74. Whorelina Skankalina says – reply to this


    Oh man, I love Owen Wilson. I'd have his baby if he wanted me to. I hope he's alright and figures out how much his fans love him!

  75. THE PAPARAZZO COMMUNITY says – reply to this


    We are so sad he's gonna be dead soon, cause we were hoping to get lots more pictures of him acting like an asshole. Maybe we'll be lucky, and get a shot of him in the MORGUE, DEAD, where he BELONGS!!!


  76. KFED says – reply to this


    He was probably horribly haunted by images of having to be in a movie with Jennifer Maniston and felt he had no way out. The only good thing about doing a movie with Maniston is Owens nose looks really small and dainty compaired to Jenns.

  77. kerry says – reply to this


    if this is true, I will be devastated! all my prayers go out to him to get help.

  78. Jessica says – reply to this


    Oh, gosh. I really hope Owen's gonna be ok.

    I can only wonder what he had to be soooo suicidal about?

  82. Cate says – reply to this


    Oh god, I hope this isn't true. He's a really talented guy.

  83. Eva says – reply to this


    Owen is my fave actor.. he is funny and cute.. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem… I am glad his brother found him. Get the help you need Owen.. We still need you here on earth!

  86. From a fag to an Asshole says – reply to this


    Hey, 247, just because he took pills and slit his writs does not mean he's gay…maybe he just wanted to be found but not instantly dead from a gunshot. And, 239, you make me sick.

  87. WHY says – reply to this


    We love you owen

  88. @ 1st U Don't Succeed-Try 2x says – reply to this


    Agree with YumYum #247. Listen folks people who really want to commit suicide are very successful-they do kill themselves, about a thousand a day. Yes, they give warning signs and they may be unclear about dying and gamble with death, as they just want to stop the pain. Let us see what pain Owen is experiencing: death of family member-NO; money problems-NO; pending separation-NO; difficulty in a love relationship-NO or maybe…but at 38 and never been married, you've showed the world your selfish, refuse to share money or freedom, and refuse to answer to another. Owen just wanted someone to pity him (superficial cuts and NEARLY empty bottle of pills)–that is the real truth. No pity here…I just save it for the people who are really suffering and in pain.

  89. 5150 says – reply to this



  90. finchee says – reply to this


    just shows the world that celebrities arent perfect. they take drugs,they drink and have problems that they think the only way to end the pain is to try and kill themselves.

  91. monday says – reply to this


    I've worked in the film business for years and 80% of the actors have big drug and alcohol problems. I know for a fact this guy is a big druggie.

  92. TATER TOT says – reply to this


    One day, I'm gonna grow up to be just like OWEN WILSON. I'm gonna kill myself, but I'm gonna do it LIVE ON T.V…. should get big ratings.

  93. debbiekb says – reply to this


    It sounds like he wanted to be found - like a cry for help. I hope those people around him are going to make sure he gets it. This is very sad!!

  94. Kate says – reply to this


    I can't believe it. I am really shocked. He is a great funny actor. I hope he gets the help he obviously needs.

  95. Saskia says – reply to this


    Get well soon Owen. We love you.

  96. bebe says – reply to this


    My thoughts nprayers go to him
    dont u attempt taht perez muah love u

  97. Matt says – reply to this


    HAHHAHA He's angsty! Good luck on the next try!

  98. Mona says – reply to this


    I have a lot of compassion for Owen and the Wilson Family. Suicide is a very serious subject, and I don't think any jokes are funny regarding this. Put yourself in Owen's place or anymember of his families, maybe then you can understand the emotions behind this story. Owen: there is always a light at the end of a tunnel, you just have to look for it and focus on the light. Goodluck

  99. ChaCha says – reply to this


    FYI, I saw Owen, his dog, Luke, and some big hairy guy at Cha Cha Chicken in Santa Monica yesterday (Saturday the 25th). They were in front of me in line to order and waiting for food. They all looked a little ratty, but generally ok and having an apparently normal, if a little sedate, conversation about tables, what to order, etc.

  100. Hello Kitty says – reply to this


    "slashed superficially".. a cry for help.. if he was so far gone he would have done it the proper way to end his life.

    Kate Hudson had better be in for some MAJOR PR SPIN & CONTROL DAMAGE.

    The rap mags are going to fuck her over big time, even though they both moved on.
