    Owen Wilson has become a household name. He's been going through some hard times apparently and last night he attempted suicide according to police reports. He overdosed on medications and slit his wrists according to a video on MSN. Here's an article:

    If his brother Andrew didn't find him he would most likely be dead today. I hope that he can get through whatever hard times he is dealing with. He's in "good condition" according to the hospital he is staying at.

    I was wondering when our next big celebrity suicide attempt would come around. What a shame, though, he's a really funny guy.

    I hate when celebrities do that crap. It disgusts me.

    It's no different than if your best friend tried to hill himself. Would it disgust you then?

    I think pitty is a better word than disgust. Obviously he felt like he didn't have a good life to look forward to. I think he's a great actor but it seems like actors sometimes are the ones who like to dramatize things. They also over-dramatize their situation sometimes. Celebrity suicides would be a very interesting essay to write on.

    I wish him the best of luck and hope that he gets the help he needs to make it through this bad phase.

    Owen Wilson is a funny guy and it's always blown out of porportion by the media. Suicide occurs nearly everyday and when a celebrity attempts to commit suicide, its a big story in the entertainment industry. I do feel more pity than disgust becuase it's a serious situation. It does goes to show you not even actors can be civilians at times.
