Owen Wilson gives interview to MySpace but makes no mention of suicide attempt
OWEN WILSON HAS broken his silence and given his first interview to MySpace since his attempted suicide.
The actor spoke to his close friend and film director Wes Anderson for the MySpace Artist on Artist series. The pair spoke about everything from movies to malaria – but side-stepped Wilson’s suicide bid altogether.
Wilson chatted about his latest movie, The Darjeeling Limited, filmed in India and directed by Anderson and the friends laughed about taking malaria pills and meeting monkeys.
The 38-year-old revealed that this latest project may be his favourite to date saying: ‘I would say it’s maybe, maybe my favorite,’ says Wilson, who adds that the movie’s themes interest him. ‘My character says ‘I want us to become brothers again like we used to be.’ I really like that line and it means a lot to me.’
Police were called to Wilson’s house in Santa Monica back in August and confirmed that the actor had attempted suicide.
The following day the star issued a statement saying: ‘I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time.’
