A failed suicide attempt left Owen Wilson “bloodied and dazed”. The affable actor tried to kill himself by taking pills and slitting his wrist after an argument with a close friend. According to Page Six,
One neighbor said that when she heard the ambulance, she was surprised because Wilson never causes any trouble.
“All the neighbors like him, he’s a friendly guy. He never has any crazy parties or does anything wrong,” Betty Miller said.
But Wilson, 38 – who always appeared to be a happy slacker type – has a dark history of depression.
“It’s very upsetting. People are complicated. It’s not just one thing,” said a friend of the actor.
It’s tough being an actor. I wanted to be one when I grew up, but being paid $20 million a year and having beautiful women come up to you only for sex wasn’t the life for me. Instead, I became a garbageman. I smell like rotting fruit 24/7 and no woman will touch me, but no slit wrists yet! Just a lot of crying.
