Owen Wilson is a big fan of Sister Louisa’s Church of the Living Room & Ping Pong Emporium bar in Atlanta, and he was enjoying a night out there when he decided he wanted to take part in a game of table tennis.
Owen arrived at around midnight a few nights ago and had an employee at the venue ring up owner Grant Henry to play against him.
An insider told People.com: “Grant arrived at the bar and played a quick game with Owen, beating him 21-18. Owen requested a rematch, and Grant said only if the winner gets the other person’s trucker hat.”
In the end, Owen won the next match and dutifully swapped hats with Grant.
The source added: “Owen was friendly and jovial, posing for photos with other people at the bar.”
Owen isn’t the only one that has enjoyed some ping-pong during downtime in Atlanta. Ben Stiller recently talked about playing ping-pong at Sister Louisa’s as well on while he was here late last year filming The Watch with Vince Vaughn. We suspect that Vince was the one that turned Owen onto Sister Louisa’s, which is one of our favorite local spots too!
Owen Wilson has been in Atlanta filming The Intership which is still filming on Georgia Tech’s campus and will continue to be through the end of next week.
