2007 Shocking Headlines: Owen Wilson's Suicide Attempt

2007 Shocking Headlines: Owen Wilson's Suicide Attempt

Yesterday we kicked off the most shocking headlines of 2007, and we'll be revealing one more each day through December 21. We hope you enjoy this look back at some of the posts and stories that we certainly weren't expecting to see.

For most of 2007 we watched Owen Wilson make movies, get playful with Kate Hudson, and hang out in San Francisco — all the while with a smile on his face. What we didn't know was the inner pain Owen was experiencing, making his suicide attempt in late August both surprising and hard to understand. There was no shortage of rumors placing blame on everything from depression to drugs to his breakup with Kate. Owen kept a low profile, dropped out of a few projects to rest and emerged at the premiere of Darjeeling Limited looking a little more subdued but still the comedian we know and love. In the past couple of months Owen is back on the beach, into skirt-chasing and spending time with his boys like Woody, Wes and Luke, giving us hope that 2008 will be nothing but good times and funny films.

This was a sad story but thankfully didn't end badly.

I'm just glad that he APPEARS to be doing better mentally. And I am even more glad that Owen was caught in time, so that he could get the proper help that he needed.

Agree with tkoblondee -- it would REALLY be sad if Owen let this life-changing experience pass him by without some real introspection and growth. Of course, who knows how hard he's really working on his soul's development, but he seems to be running awfully hard - extensive travelling (which can be so physically draining), a gaggle of different women and just some generally odd behavior. Sigh. Of course, nobody wants to see a relapse, but isn't it likely with no real lifestyle change, as previously noted?

I thought it was shockingly sad, but not the most shocking. I don't know what that says about me as a person... I wish Owen and Kate had stayed together. They seemed perfect for one another.

cop out or not, i think we can all agree that Owen needs all the support and encouragement he can get, and i for one, wish him and his family a wonderful holiday season to cap off what has clearly been a difficult year...

It was a cowardly move i agree with nyar, it was a "cop out".

So, it's goes on? I don't know how he could have gotten over it all so quickly? No lifestyle change...

That's kind of messed up that the related stories are "Best of 2007". Leave the guy alone...let it rest and move on.
