Are You Shocked By All The Owen News?

We couldn't believe the awful news when we first heard about Owen's suicide attempt on Sunday, and now stories about his past are popping up all over the place. Apparently Owen has a history of drug usage, and his friendship with co-star Steve Coogan has had a negative influence on his life. His face is all over the media this week, so we want to know - are you shocked by all the news about Owen?

Everyone searches for meaning in their life, fame, money its not there. Its almost shocking that people who don't believe in a hereafter don't try to kill themselves more often. There is so much beautiful about life, the people you love, the people whol love you even when you cannot love yourself, creation, but there is a whole bucket of ugly. I am so relieved he did not succeed, and I hope he sees this as a second chance and in his healing the veil of true is lifted for him and he finds the truth. I dont believe in proseltizing so I will simply say, without faith I too would have sought oblivion, as it laid heavy on my as an option for manyyears until light came in.

I saw your link today, and one yesterday. And what is with Courtney Love opening her big mouth talking about she is a friend that wanted to HELP Owen, by opening up and telling what and who caused Owens's problem and attempted suicide. That is NO friend of Owen's. That is a woman that doesn't use nickel bags anymore, therefore she'll tell any story to get MORE than a nickel for her larger than life addiction. No one can convince me she's clean, and she didn't mind telling her addiction back in the day anyway. Courtney Love needs to keep her big unclean mouth shut, and respect Owen's privacy like he requested BEFORE she spoke up and out to the magazines. I hope she does get sued by that other man, even if it was truth to the story. And didn't her husband (Kurt) do his self in with drugs AND Suicide because he couldn't take Courtney's presence anymore...enough said IF that's true fact.

it's not the first funny man with a dark side but still I'm surprised, it's so sad, this remembered me of his character from The Royal Tenenbaums :(

Well I cannot be call "tacky" because I voted AND THEN called the poll tacky. I NEVER voted and never will. You have to remember that you can post and not have to vote on a poll...the only thing is that you cannot see the poll result of what everyone else is thinking. And that's fine with me. Again, I didn't fouly vote on that either.

comedians ALWAYS have a dark side, his is just a little darker (and more publicized) than most.

I am shocked, but it's sad that he can't go through his pain without it being plastered everywhere and his "friends" opening up all over newspapers and magazines.

And are they blaming this on Coogan because of what Courtney Love said? http://www.mtv.co.uk/channel/mtvuk/news/30082007/coogan_could_sue_courtney

I was not shocked at all. My mom was in treatment with him years ago and said he would not make it. Many comedians have drug and alcohol problems . . .Chris Farley, Belushi, Robin Williams, etc.

It's not shocking, because a lot od people have darker sides they don't reveal to the world. It's sad though and I hope he gets through it :)

The suicide attempt was a very big, bad surprise.

Here is where it turns into a black hole even for optimistic me: Where can the poor guy go to recover? I just can't imagine the dread of being "out there" again, with all the paps and cameras and stares, knowing everyone is wondering if he's OK or about to try again. Seriously, does anyone think there is a place where he can deal with this in peace? We have seen pap photos of him running errands in TX, galavanting around Europe ... I just hope there is a place that feels like home or at least feels comfortable to him where he can be peaceful for a good long while.

and one more thing.. i just re-read what you wrote and you're arrogant. you have experience, so that makes you shut everyone else down? if everyone knew suicide was a "no no" it wouldn't happen. I have lost 2 friends to suicide, from your reply, you obviously don't get it. watch how you treat people. goodnight.

cravinsugar.. really? shocking.. you completely missed my point.
cravinsugar cravinsugar 9 years
m83: I think everyone here knows suicide is a no no. puh-lease Molly: thanks for posting that, even though the majority of us know you were not trying to offend. some people just get to sensitive...and b4 anyone says anything...my best friend tried to commit suicide, which threw me into a depression, so i am not speaking without experience.
