OWEN WILSON SUICIDE Attempt#1
Posted: 8/26/07 at 11:29pm
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.

Wilson was stabilized at St. John’s.

More on this story as it develops…

A search of CNN's site yielded nothing, although I did learn that Hulk Hogan's son was seriously injured in a crash tonight:

umm TMZ makes no mention of the reason of his hopitalization, just that he has been hospitalized. SO far the only places mentioning suicide that ive seen are Perezhilton and dlisted (whihc are both referencing national enquirerer)

Isn't the National Enquirer always just pages of crap? Is it really that reliable? I mean, it might be. But I would rather wait until something more official is quoted.
I mean, Denzel Washington? Gun to my head..of course.

and from Perez Hilton....

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.”

Well, if it's true, that's terrible and I certainly hope he gets the help he needs. Depression is, as Yawper said, a bitch to live with.

And the bluest ink

Variety has also ran with the story.

Liverpool, Harris was referring to his work being funny. He was saying it's sad that a comedic actor who is so funny (read: good at his job) is in such a painful situation.

Don't go putting blame on someone who was making a simple comment that clearly meant no offense.

Wow....this is just so shocking.

Makes me wonder if this was brought on by a sudden turn of events in his life, or if it's been an ongoing battle for him.

Regardless of whether you care or don't care for him as an actor/comedian is besides the point.

We're talking about a fellow human being who is obviously in alot of pain and tried to end his pain by taking his own life.

This is nothing to make fun of or take lightly. Wish him well that he may overcome whatever situation led him down this path.

Yes we're talking about a fellow human being who didn't care enough about the people in his life to think about what killing himself would do to them.

It's nice to know you are walking in this man's shoes and feel the need to judge him so harshly.

Anyway I don't wish to argue with anyone. That's not where I'm coming from.
