Owen Wilson attempts suicide



Tbdowenwilson082807 Owen Wilson was hospitalized Sunday after allegedly attempting suicide at his Santa Monica home, Star reported over the weekend.

He “is here in good condition,” Cynthia Harding, a spokeswoman for Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, said Monday, the AP reports. Wilson had initially been taken to St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica.

"I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time," Wilson said in a statement released to Reuters.

A family member found him after he slashed his left wrist and took “an indeterminate number of pills,” Star said. The New York Post reports that Santa Monica police responded to the 900 block of 23rd Street (where Wilson lives) for a “medical assistance call” and that “a person was transported to a local hospital where they are being treated.” The National Enquirer says Wilson was sutured and detoxed before being moved from St. John’s.
