Owen Wilson was hooked on drugs

August 29th, 2007 // 78 Comments

Owen Wilson was reportedly struggling with depression and hooked on heroin and cocaine, and it was his drug addiction that caused his breakup with Kate Hudson. And who’s to blame for all this? Apparently some British guy named Steve Coogan. The New York Post reports:

“I went through it with Steve,” Coogan’s former girlfriend, rocker Courtney Love, told US.

“I was just out of rehab, and he was right there with the drugs. I tried to warn Owen. I tried to warn his friends. I hope from the bottom of my heart that Owen stays the hell away from that guy.”

Wilson’s addiction was so severe, his pal Woody Harrelson tried to stage an intervention at his home in Maui.

“Owen went to Maui, Hawaii, to kick his habit,” a longtime Wilson pal told the mag. “He was like a baby on that couch.”

The friend said that heroin was the first thing that came to mind when Wilson and Hudson split and he suddenly “disappeared off the face of the earth.”

“I thought, briefly, he might be back on heroin, but we all really felt he’d kicked that ages ago,” his friend said.

It’s bad enough this Steve Coogan guy basically made Owen Wilson want to kill himself, but you seriously have to reexamine your life if Courtney Love calls you a bad influence. I saw her make out with a hypodermic needles once and the only complaint she had was that it was “kind of pokey.”

    frist prost

  2. wackingboy

    He can suck it. He plays the same character in EVERY movie.

    I pee on him.

  3. jrzmommy

    If Woody Harrelson and Courtney Love are concerned……….you’re fucked.

  4. mywellrehearsedmistake

    See, is that true that he really “disappeared off the face of the earth.”?

    Cos if so, why the fuck am I still reading about this scag junkie?

    If you are gonna get gone – stay gone.

  5. dangerlilly

    Holy shit! Jrzmommy summed it up pretty well in #3.

  6. @3 what about Lindsay and Paris

  7. I actually feel bad for him. I hope he can clean himself up.

  8. pah

    Hah! Someone as universally hated as Courtney Love slagging off someone as loved (at least in Britain) as Steve Coogan…she’s not on to a winner there!

  9. Tits McGee

    He grew up in the most posh neighborhood in Dallas, he was sent to Military school as a teen because of his behavior issues, and now, drugs? Big Fucking Surprise. I hate rich kids.

    Luke Wilson rules, however. Hotness factor is up there.

  10. Giomon_Rocks

    Normally I would make a comment about what a scummy person this is and that they can go fuck themselves, but there really are soooo many worse people than Owen Wilson. I, too, hope that he can kick that shit.

  11. Texas Tranny

    When I was growing up, we used to go to up there to beat the shit out of the St. Mark’s faggots for fun. Those rich pussyboy types.

  12. MrJolly

    Right, so OW’s addictions are due to someone else not his inability to keep straight and just not get hooked in the first place….. Didn’t love claim to be pregnant with Coogans baby once? Coogans funny, bloody funny, one of the best comedy actors of all time, Wilson may be more famous but has about a 10th of the talent and isn’t remotley as funny.

    Monkey Tennis any one?

  13. Morning Wood

    This one is full of real dip shits – Owen, Woody and Courtney.
    Could someone please toss a hand grenade in the room?

    Great opportunity for Courtney to pull off a double homicide and finish it off with a well over due suicide.

  14. Heroin RULES, and any of you who think otherwise obviously have not tried it and don’t know how deliciously warm and fuzzy it makes you feel. Why, I’d do heroin all day long if it weren’t for this job and the kid and the sponsibilities….
    I love everything about smack, but the withdrawals will kill ya!!!

  15. Jimbo

    @14 I think I will run down the street to my local Herion dealer and get me a fix.

  16. mr sensitive

    Well that’s just great. He’s not just a whiney wimp who “tries” to commit suicide like a 15 year old girl, he’s also a spineless drug addict. I know, let’s hand him some more money and fame and see if he feels better. Poor fella – what a hard life, being the brother who’s always seen as the lesser talent. Wait, he’s the successful one. Poor thing.

  17. jrzmommy

    #14 – I bet your kid disagrees.

  18. Hi, I’m Owen Wilson. I’m known as the “Butterscotch Stallion” because of my hair and complexion, plus I’m reputed in Hollywood as having a big dick. This public knowledge has enabled me to fuck the hell out of tons of movie stars (like Kate Hudson) and normal chicks alike; despite the fact that my nose looks like a kid’s Play-Doh creation and I have a voice that melts concrete. Every movie I’m in is fucking funny and has made me a ton of money. Oh, yeah… I’m rich too.

    So, I decided to try to end it this week. Cut my wrist, took some pills, called it good.


  19. suicide = nature's own self-cleaning oven

    Great story! Now we can look forward to 50 comments from simpering know-it-alls who will explain to us – patiently – that depression is bad (um-kay?) and addicition is bad (um-kay?) and suicide is bad (um-kay?) and death is nothing to joke about (UM-KAY?).

  20. Rmc

    i dont understand why hollywood types do heroin. Coke is cool. Heroin is not.

  21. cockforsale

    i do coke..it pwns junk

  22. Katie

    It is pretty pathetic when Woody Harrelson is the one staging an intervention.

  23. Ganzagwenie

    Does he have a movie coming out soon? Free publicity!

  24. Lil Princess

    awwww i like Owen! but seriously, he is a lil crybaby bitch. even with a drug addiction… who the fuck cares? YOUR RICH BITCH! hahaha he could have gone to the lovely Promises resort, or even joined lindsay in utah. aye.

  25. ssdd

    Well its no wonder he went into overdose………… snorting some coke and a nose like that?????? .. my god.. easy to get way way way more than you meant to.

  26. BlohansDeviatedSeptum

    Uh dude if your dead you can’t do any more drugs. Duh.

  27. Big Mama

    He is such a DICK NOSE. He can’t even kill himself. I hope he jumps off a building next time, and they leave his dead body there for awhile so everyone can laugh at him.

  28. jrzmommy

    hahaha…..the intervention was taped secretly……….here’s part of the transcript:

    *Owen Wilson sobbing*

    Woody Harrelson’s voice: Dude, seriously, man…….it does looks like a dick.

    *louder sobs*

  29. Shallow Val

    I like Owen Wilson and I have to give him props for being able to keep in on the down low. That said, it sucks to be hook’d on anything. And yet, he kept working. Otherwise, I’d like to go on record and call him a douche for riding both the horse AND pony, and also to hope he finally leaves them alone.

  30. SHallow Val

    14 FRIST

    Yeah, I realized how yummy it felt and that’s why I respected it and didn’t get into it. Now, cocaine, however, I had no respect for. Coke was MY bitch. (or was it the other way around, hmmmm?)

  31. lambman

    Um, this is a bizare and surprising new development.

    for a heroine addict he sure hides it well..compare Owen to Amy Winehouse, Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson……they all look like strung out drug addicts, but Owen just looks like he needs a nose job

  32. jrzmommy

    32–and his nose looks like it needs a blow job. AHAHAHAHA AHA AHAHAHA

  33. dr phil

    If all this is because he’s hung up on Kate Hudson, somebody should go out and buy him an 11-year-old blonde boy. I think John Mark Karr knows a guy who knows a guy who…

  34. UCrawford

    I guess it’s not really surprising…Coogan’s had a well-documented history of living the wild life. He’s apparently just quieter about it than Courtney Love


  35. queenbuzz

    #3….no lie…COURTNEY LOVE and WOODY HARRELSON staging an intervention? Wouldn’t that be like George Bush holding a peace rally?

  36. RichPort

    Obviously “Trainspotting” is not in his NetFlix queue…

  37. reptilicus


    stupid rich people

  38. BaldAsBritney

    Does anybody have Steve Coogans phone #? Just wondering..

  39. lil britney hater


    stupid rich WHITE people…………………………….and a couple asians

  40. dougiehouseya


  41. Tyler

    Load of bollocks. It’s Courtney Love saying it for Christ sake.

  42. terry

    Heroin is NOT yummy! First it makes you barf, then it makes you nod. Not whatcha’d call a sociable party drug.

    Now, smack and coke consumed at the same time will the top of your head off.

    I only did it the once, deciding afterward that I’d rather keep my brains inside my skull casing.

    That said, I like Owen and his movies and I was really pretty surprised by this recent news.

  43. Pokey Cowgurl

    LMFAO Fish! Did you see Samual Jackson tell the reporters to FUCK OFF when he went to visit his bud?! That is a man true to his character right there!

  44. SHallow Val

    43 -terry

    never barfed on H. BUT then, I never did a whole bag either. Just enuf to feel it and have a nice time. BUT, never went further than that either; thank Dog. Now, base however, I wish I had never, ever tried. (That song wunt jokin, man!)

    DON’ DO IT, LUCY!!!!

  45. Hi, I’m Owen Wilson. I’m known as the “Butterscotch Stallion” because of my hair and complexion, plus I’m reputed in Hollywood as having a big dick. This public knowledge has enabled me to fuck the hell out of tons of movie stars (like Kate Hudson) and normal chicks alike; despite the fact that my nose looks like a kid’s Play-Doh creation and I have a voice that melts concrete.

    So, I decided to try to end it this week. Cut my wrist, took some pills, called it good.

    Fuck him. If Owen Wilson tries to kill himself, then I should find a way to go back in time and off myself right after high school. That was the time that my potential was greatest. At my funeral, people would comment that “he was taken from us so young… he could have been a doctor or a lawyer.”

    In reality and ironically, those are the two professions I’ve required most since I graduated high school.

    Bite me, Owen Wilson. Sorry life was so fucking good for you. Try not to get a blow job in the recovery ward… wouldn’t want you to slip deeper into depression.


  46. deluxxe

    wow. Courtney Love should keep her disease ridden mouth shut. I highly doubt it’s Steve Coogan’s fault that Owen Wilson is addicted to drugs.

  47. #2

    You’ve apparently never seen that award-winning performance in “Cable Guy” that Owen gave. Shame on you to say he plays the same character in every movie!!

  48. Miguelito

    I met Steve Coogan. He looks like shit and is really tiny, when he walks down a hall it’s like you’re back in the 18th century hanging out with Napoleon. He’s kind of like a grown baby who barely seems to know where he is. I can very easily see how he would take a woman down, since women love charming, insane, drugged-out douchebags, but not Owen Wilson. Then again, Owen Wilson is a woman.

  49. BlohansDeviatedSeptum

    Dude should just stick to smoking crack. look what it did for Whitney.
