Owen Wilson is at St. John's in Santa Monica recuperating from slashed wrists and drug overdose. His two brothers are with him.

I love this guy. Say it ain't true.

Nooo! That's awful! I'm glad he has his brothers with him during this hard time. He needs to be surounded by loved ones at this time!

Is it true? : He is one of my favorite actors. I'm so sad for him if it is true.

I couldn't imagine finding my brother like that... I'm glad he was found in time, though

I hope he makes a full recovery - it's sad to think that someone who can make millions of people laugh can have reason to attempt suicide.

We were so bummed to hear this too. The kids and I love his work. I really hope he can make a full recovery, physically and otherwise. I am so glad he has family with them.

actually, it has not been confirmed that this was a "suicide attempt." the sources are with Star and similar tabloid news outlets that are not very reliable.

it has been confirmed that it was an 'incident' from which he is recovering.

though either way, i feel really sorry for him. injury or suicide, it's sad.

I'm glad he's okay. I also read there is speculation it's a cover-up for a heroin addiction. If that's the case, I hope he is able to kick it, that's an evil drug.

I guess I always picture him as being the kind of guy he always plays in movies...happy-go- lucky. Its easy to forget that heś a ¨real person¨ too, not the characters he plays.

I hope he is able to recover and get the help he needs. This is really sad.:

TMZ is reporting that he had an arguement with a close friend that may have pushed him over the edge and that a family member discovered him in his home. If it was a suicide attempt then I hope that he gets the help that he needs. Suicide has affected my family and even a failed attempt is a horrible experience for the individual as well as the family and friends.

I'm still holding out hope it's not a suicide attempt. No reliable news source has said that yet, so maybe it's still not. Second that it's hard to remember he's a real person and not just like the characters he plays. I loved him is zoolander. I think that movie is very funny. Noah does blue steel. Haven't figured out if he's an ambi-turner yet. Anyway, I hope he gets well soon.

CNM mama.

I believe that TMZ.com is a pretty reliable website (please correct me if I am wrong. I hope that I am wrong)

I was shocked to see all the magazines at the grocery store checkout with these headlines and saddened.....

And yet how surprising is it that people who live in Hollywood (actors) would become suicidal? They live in a goldfish bowl, they are constantly 'on', they have no privacy and they always have to be in top shape - thin, beautiful, no physical faults. Suicide would likely feel like the way out of all that pressure.
