OMG! This is SO scary!
But, apparently kind of funny too, as Owen Wilson joked with Jay Leno as he told the story when he appeared on The Tonight Show to promote his new movie Little Fockers.
Andrew Wilson, lesser known actor of the Wilson brothers, was bitten by a shark while surfing in Hawaii. Owen told the story on the late night talk show, saying:
"Just the other day I was sending a message to Andrew about some guy coming by to take a look at the TV. He sent back [a message saying], 'Sounds good, I was bitten by a shark so I won't be there.'"
Owen was expecting a punch-line to what he assumed was a silly message, but instead got the truth, as he continued:
"And he literally was bitten by a shark on his right foot. Can you imagine swimming and then feeling something clamp down and pull?"
No! Sounds horrific!
Thankfully, Owen informed Leno, "He was OK, he had to get some stitches and everything."
When asked if this may prevent him from surfing anytime soon, Owen joked, "I might think twice about skinny dipping."
