Owen Wilson didn’t overdose

August 30th, 2007 // 55 Comments

An attorney for Owen Wilson tells Access Hollywood that Owen did slit his wrists, but contrary to reports there was no drug overdose and he didn’t get his stomach pumped. The attorney adds that Owen had been taking antidepressants, but he was not aware of any other drugs in his system at the time of the incident. And if you’re wondering if the 911 tapes will ever be released, the Santa Monica City Attorney’s office says no:

“In reaching this decision the City believes that in many instances no person should have to worry about whether placing a call for emergency assistance will automatically make his or her medical request open to public review,” the City Attorney’s office said in a press release late Wednesday. “In balancing the competing interests, the City agencies outweigh the public interest served by disclosure of the emergency 911 call. In situation such as this, the City concludes that the public is best served if medical attention is promptly sought instead of being delayed because of a concern, real or imagined, of public attention, regardless of whether that publicity is sympathetic or not.”

See, guys? All he did was slit his wrists. It’s not like he overdosed on drugs or anything. I bet all you guys who said he had problems must feel pretty embarrassed right about now.

    Well – I hope the Beach Boys get back together so he gets over this funk.
    (That Brian Wilson was a bit of a slug as well – Bad Vibrations?)

  2. queenbuzz

    I bet he accidentally slipped and fell on the blades because he was distracted by Larry Craig tapping his feet in the bathroom.

  3. Binky

    And come to think of it Mr. Wilson was always getting stressed out by Dennis the Menace.
    Could see it coming to the family really.

  4. tutti fruity

    he looks exactly like Ellen Degenerate

  6. What’s the big deal? Who hasn’t slit their wrists before? It doesn’t make me a MENTAL PATIENT!!!!

  7. Italian Stallion

    I can’t believe Gonzo wants to kill himself, what a waist. Give me his money and a few movies. I could do much better and wouldn’t hate life like this poor waist of space and talent………….WTF?

  8. No doubt Frist. I hear ya!

    Glad to see Owen is normal!!

  9. NotSure

    Wow! Didn’t need drugs to slit his wrists. That’s amazing.

  10. lambman

    well, EVERY Dr. will tell you that taking anti-depressents increases suicide attempts.

    otherwise depressed people are too lazy to kill themselves

  11. Lovely

    Can you have one without the other? I thought they went hand in hand… if he didn’t overdose, he’s doing it all wrong. There’s gotta be a manual out there on the proper way to kill yourself- and he apparently didn’t read it

    he should really get some of those unicorn horns from the 6th dimension. in addition to giving chris angel his magic, they are also whats been keeping amy winehouses corpse walking, applying crappy makeup and doing drugs! see, theyre really great– sweet sweet necromancy! im tellin’ you, owen could really benefit here…

  13. Devin

    He didn’t try to commit suicide, just like he didn’t sleep with a married Kate Hudson.

  14. Binky

    That’s not a Police Report.
    That’s the script to ‘Suicide Crashers’ that’s been bouncing around studios for a couple of days.
    My people are saying either Will Farrell or Vince Vaughn will be playing Owen.

  15. Jen

    Nobody cares what he really did, we just wish him all the best and speedy recovery, right people??? Can I have an AMEN??????

  16. Awww….that’s so cute, you care

  17. proteon

    OMG whut a R-tard – he has all kindsa muney!!! whut a loser!!

    Go look in teh mirror. Your so fucking fat the last thing you need to worry about is money.

  18. alf oldland

    these are p.r. lies. the earlier reports are probably closer to the truth.

    thanks for playing “hollywood.”

    I hate Owan Wilson. And all celebrities, as of now.

    I find it amusing how more celebrities … (Own Wilson, Kurt Cobaine…Etc) have commited, or tried to commit suicide compared to the number of homeless people. Celebrities have fambulous lives, and yes, have problems like everyone else but come on…They have roofs over their heads, food delivered to them on gold plates, and clothing that costs a billion dollars per thread where as homeless have a box over theirs, food served via trash can and clothes that were found on the street. If you’re going to kill yourself…Do it, but make sure you have a decent reason. Drug abuse and the loss of someone you pushed away isn’t a valid reason when there’s people worse off than you.

    The world would be so much better sans les celebs.
    …Im so heartless ;)

    owen is HOT! no matter what happened to him, he is still one of my favorites and i hope he is doing better. waiting for your return, owen!!

  22. LL

    My feeling is people who try and fail to kill themselves are huge losers twice over. Once for trying to commit suicide and then again for failing. How hard can it be, in a city full of tall buildings, close to the ocean, for a person to kill himself? Owen clearly didn’t try hard enough. I don’t want him to off himself, I find him kind of appealing in the movies, but c’mon. Sounds like a giant “look at me!” more than a real suicide attempt. Owen, Kate’s not THAT awesome, get over it. Screw a bunch of groupies or strippers or whatever and get on with your (enviable, famous, affluent) life. Sorry, but unless you live in a slum and have to perform sexual favors to get money to eat, your life ain’t that bad.

  23. Kimberlee-Shantel= Idiot (#23)

    You only get to insult someone if you can spell his name. Kimberlee-Shantel is a stupid cunt. See, that worked out ok. I bet your at Kinko’s and someone left SF.com up and you decided to give your 2 cents. Thanks for coming by.

    Reports just in… Butterscotches thoughts at the time of the event…

    (starts cutting…..)

    Fish is right to chastise us for zealotry and, to lessen my embarrasment, I am offering the following public service announcement

    1) do not slit your wrist across – that will close off. You must slice your arm lenthwise along the veins to open them up enough to bleed to death.

    2) although some anti-depressants are decently lethal, the best poison is Tylenol: just a handful and there’s no going back.

  26. So I’m repelling down Mount Vesuvius when suddenly I slip, and I start to fall. Just falling, ahh ahh, I’ll never forget the terror. When suddenly I realize “Holy shit, Hansel, haven’t you been smoking Peyote for six straight days, and couldn’t some of this maybe be in your head?”

    Oh my god, has anyone noticed if you look closely, you can see through his sunglasses and his right eye is BUGGING!

  28. methlabmolly

    Uh huh. Just like all the druggies in Hollywood go to rehab because they are “addicted to painkillers” and by painkillers I mean cocaine, meth, heroin, combo, whateva.

  29. JaneaneTheAcerbicGoblin

    Pretty well put, #23….

  30. tommy salami

    owen looks like a young don imus in this pic. that is when don was strung out on booger sugar in the 70′s.
    makes me wonder if ben stiller will try to kill himself, since their careers parallel each others.

  31. tommy salami

    i would never kill myself for a flat chested woman kate hudson should be president of the I.B.T.C.( the ITTY BITTY TITTY COMMITEE)

    #26 :

    As a matter of fact, I not only have offered tips that were advertized on this website, but I have been a fan of it for quite a while, I just don’t post as often as a lot of people on here because I am an adult, which by deffinition is someone that can carry a conversation without insulting another just because their oppinions clash.

    You can call me a cunt, but sweetie I can leave satisfied that people saw my oppinion, accepted I think that way and moved on, where as they see you calling some girl a cunt instead of posting yours.

    Anything else to add, contact me PERSONALLY, via e-mail.

    Should you have nothing else to say, Much love. Get a life. <3

  33. ocean park

    The SM CAO’s decision underscores their very own recent experience with the successful suicide of an extraordinarily amazing and SMART colleague. i can’t help but believe that had a positive effect on their opinion. if so, thank you CT.

  34. Postal

    I always thought drugs were suppose to make folks more entertaining. I bet he was really just snorting Ajax or something.

  35. Gadeval

    For those easly offended please do not visit the website above.

  36. Eh…I’ve already seen it

  37. I was in my room and I was just like staring at the wall thinking about everything
    But then again I was thinking about nothing
    And then my mom came in and I didn’t even know she was there she called my name
    And I didn’t even hear it, and then she started screaming: OWEN! OWEN!
    And I go:
    What, what’s the matter
    And she goes:
    What’s the matter with you?
    I go:
    There’s nothing-wrong mom.
    And she goes:
    Don’t tell me that, you’re on drugs!
    And I go:
    No mom I’m not on drugs I’m okay, I was just thinking you know, why don’t you get me a Pepsi.
    And she goes:
    NO you’re on drugs!
    I go:
    Mom I’m okay, I’m just thinking.
    She goes:
    No you’re not thinking, you’re on drugs! Normal people don’t act that way!
    I go:
    Mom just give me a Pepsi please
    All I want is a Pepsi, and she wouldn’t give it to me
    All I wanted was a Pepsi, just one Pepsi, and she wouldn’t give it to me.
    Just a Pepsi.

    They give you a white shirt with long sleeves
    Tied around you’re back, you’re treated like thieves
    Drug you up because they’re lazy
    It’s too much work to help a crazy

  38. Moore

    What’s up with you people who live lives of nagging, perpetual misery who somehow think people who suffer acute attacks of misery and actually act on it are losers? Since when is denial and inaction more noble? Besides, you’re missing the point: who cares if he tried and failed? Or that his effort wasn’t full-hearted? It doesn’t mean he didn’t want to die, it just means a part of him wants to live. You know how that goes– you’re willing to live with a shitty job, a boring, stressful relationship, no real friends and/ or money problems and never do a damned thing to change your situation, much less a half-assed suicide attempt, because you are a coward. Oooohhh yes, YOU are the loser, not Owen Wilson. You.

  39. jrzmommy

    I bet it wasn’t even wrist slashing. I bet he lashed out at the source of his self-loathing……..his Dicknose. He tried a facial castration……..a……a…..rhinocircumcision, if you will.

  40. BaldAsBritney

    Idiot, OD’ing sounds like alot more fun than slashing your wrists.

    and #43 reading your ridiculous post makes me want to help you commit suicide

  41. Ugly People Safaris

    I think he was just trying to cut a tomato. Dont wanna use too much pressure or everything squirts out, and too much sawing action might not give a crisp cut. Give a guy a break.. he was just making a salad when the knife slipped.

  42. Muni Man

    That’s Bullshit! Everyone is just trying to cover it up! To be sober and try to slit your wrists is really fucking amazing!!! Now watch him go to rehab too!

  43. Clementines

    Yeah .. it’s better to say he can’t keep a woman because he’s too repulsive than admit he’s addicted to something huh? Not that he hasn’t been seen drunk and wasted many a time..?

  44. Katelyn

    Leave Owen alone. Is him not enjoying life so trying to end it entertainment to you?

  45. i hate when celebrities try to change the story. just say what really happend, admit it and no one is guna keep talking about it!

  46. 15piecesofflare

    #23, Have you ever heard the phrase “answered prayers are sometimes worse than unanswered ones”? I think that might be an explanation for Owen’s actions. Just my humble opinion.

  47. TheExpatriot

    Oh, you guys are so superficial.

  48. redsonja1313




    Whoo hoo but I cna afford a good spin doctor and those head shrinkers will give me “legal” drugs and I can go to rehab and bang lindsey while have a rehabilitative spa experience !!!

    on the othe hand,, i agree no ones 911 calls should be released ever. well unless your that dumb bitch from the OC who called 911 because Carl’s JR wouldn’t make her burger right !!
