Troubled movie star OWEN WILSON has given his first interview since his suicide
attempt – to his longtime friend, director WES ANDERSON.
The interview, to be posted online on Friday (26Oct07) at midnight, sees the
actor talk candidly to the director of his latest film, The Darjeeling Limited,
as part of the MySpace Artist on Artist series.
It will be Wilson’s first public airing since he rushed to hospital after
slashing his wrists at his Santa Monica home two months ago (Aug07).
At the time, the Wedding Crashers star asked for privacy with a statement
saying, “I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in
private during this difficult time.”
In September (07), at the Venice Film Festival, Anderson said that his friend
was “doing well.”
He added: “When he’s ready he’s going to speak for himself much better than
anyone else could. He has a very good way with words.”
Wilson and Anderson have worked together on multiple projects, including
Bottle Rocket and The Royal Tenenbaums, which they co-wrote, and The Life
Aquatic with Steve Zissou.
