Wes & Owen's Special Bond

Wes & Owen's Special Bond

Owen Wilson has been keeping a low profile since being hospitalized, but the film industry continues on. Matthew McConaughey stepped up to take over his role in Tropic Thunder, and The Darjeeling Limited will hit theaters next week whether or not Owen is ready to promote the film or attend the premieres. Once again he teamed up with Wes Anderson for the film, and the close-knit buddies sat down with Men's Vogue to talk about collaborating their efforts and the friendship they've formed over the years. Owen said,

"People say that I am the one with the heart or something, and Wes is the intellectual. But I think that's all pretty much bullshit. Everything we did, we did together. Of course, Wes was the only one who could type, so he always got to put a kind of final edit on it. But, like, a writer said that the glib stuff was more me and the soulful stuff was Wes, and that wasn't accurate. Wes is capable of coming up with silly stuff just as I was. The main thing was finding the same thing funny and getting it on the page."

These two have a long history as college buddies and writing partners as well as much in common like both being middle children. Clearly Wes is very supportive of Owen and vice-versa. Owen seems to be doing well and like Wes said, he'll talk when he's ready to so we'll sit tight until then.
