Owen Wilson Hospitalized After Apparent Suicide Attempt

August 29, 2007

Actor Owen Wilson was hospitalized after an apparent suicide attempt. Wilson has dropped out of the upcoming ensemble comedy "Tropic Thunder" Wednesday.

Wilson will not appear in the Dreamworks movie which is now six weeks in to production in Hawaii, according to Daily Variety and the Hollywood Reporter.

Ben Stiller, director of the film, said the decision was a mutual agreement between himself and 38-year-old Wilson. Wilson was taken to the hospital Sunday after police responded to the report of a suicide attempt at his home in Santa Monica.

"Most people are confused by this, but as a recovering addict myself it gives me hope that this is his bottom and he can turn it around. He really is a good guy," friend Tom Arnold told theinsideronline.com.

A spokesman for 20th Century Fox declined to discuss Wilson's scheduled appearance opposite Jennifer Aniston in the upcoming "Marley & Me."
