Owen Wilson Issues A Statement

We've been on the edge of our seat since yesterday afternoon's shocking and heartbreaking news that Owen Wilson was rushed to the hospital after a possible suicide attempt. A spokesperson for Cedars-Sinai reported that he is at the hospital and "in good condition." Today, Owen issued the following statement:

"I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time."

We sincerely hope that Owen gets any help he needs and, with the help of his family and friends, is feeling better soon. Our thoughts are definitely with him.

To get to that point, you've gone beyond selfishness and you've entered the arena of mental illness. Clinical depression is deadly. My prayers are with him. That said, I wonder if he knew his brother would be stopping by and if this was more of a cry for help. I hope so.

I hope Owen gets better. It does seem like his problems include a long battle with heroin. Tragic to have everything and let a drug stop you from enjoying it all.

This news just really depressed me! He is the last person I would ever expect to do something like that! It goes to show that you never really know what a person is going through. I wish him the best!

Ahh man, I new somebody on here would say it,--‘tlwilliamson29’-- and I didn’t want to be the first too do it because I am so much older, and should NOT have been looking at it multiple times even by myself..... ok honestly about 30 times I admit it....so now I’ll be LESS embarrassed and I’ll say it after you-‘tlwilliamson29’- ….. We love you Lightning McQueen! Whooo Hoooo !! And you don’t have to put up with anybody, because you are a “”Precision instrument of speed and arrow dynamics---and you create feelings in others that they themselves just don’t understand…pi-cha-kow, Ka-chow””. I believe is how Lightning McQueen put it. That character cracks me up...Lightning McQueen is so dam* conceited. Talk about a big mouthed egotistical personality that learned a big lesson in the end....Get better soon Owen!You're in our prayers.

I think 'carol' must have thought this was the TMZ posting board. That's where those type of comments belong, especially during a time like this for Owen & his family. I haven't gone to TMZ and I won't. They hate on everybody dead, alive, or having a true problem in life. They have no idea what be 'patience and kind' means. They want any news so they can bash and start petty Internet racial wars of their own-on any race-. TMZ posters are mostly idiots. Go there with that stuff. That is the last thing Owen needs to read, IF he ever visited Pop Sugar later on. I read an article weeks ago that stated some celeberties admitted checking this website out-PopSugar-, and love it. And you know I heard that this website was advertised on some television show many many months ago, like Oprah or something? Is that true? I'm not a TV fan, so I wouldn't know. Someone just pointed me in this direction, and I'm glad they did.

just to put in my 2 cents about suicide in general... i know a lot of people do see it as a selfish act and all ... but we also have to look at it from the perspective of the person - because I think that even someone with the best support system can fall victim to overwhelming feelings of loneliness, depression etc and for some people it isn't just a "thoughtless act" which is why i think you get failed attempts where the person is found by family/friend - it's also a call for help.And if you think of how many people you've known that have committed suicide, and maybe it was a surprise to you or you had thought that they were not so selfish before they did that... imagine at what place/point in their lives they must have been at to contemplate suicide.I don't think we should judge so easily ... this is not a black and white situation - there is no wrong or right answer only an attempt to understand and assist those in need.

well, obviously after this statement it means that he is recovering from something more than just dehydration. Whatever it was I hope he gets all the help that he needs and it seems like he has a great family so hopefully he will get better .

That's so sad, I hope he is given the privacy and respect he needs. I would just like to say, I get so upset when people say that suicide is a selfish act, because they are completely misunderstanding how horrible depression and other mental illnesses are that cause suicide. When someone has that many problems, how can they even think straight? It doesn't mean that they don't love their friends and family. My own mother died from suicide, and I do not think she was being selfish because she had mental illnesses which got in the way of her everyday life. I know she loved me, she was very kind and loving. As horrible as it may sound, sometimes I think that maybe was what was best for her; she had a miserable life.

I was completely shocked to hear rumors that he'd attempted suicide. Of course I hope they're not true....but I'd be even happier if I never heard another peep about it from the media. I only want to hear statements directly from the Wilson family. Sadly, the media NEVER respects anyone's privacy during a personal crisis. Any kind of hospitalization is a big deal, but for some reason Owen's case is getting me stirred up. I guess it's because a suicide attempt is so deeply personal. The WHOLE WORLD is gonna want to know WHY he did it...how long had he been suicidal....did he leave a note, ya know? It's NONE of our business. How did the freakin' National Enquirer even get wind of this whole thing anyways????
