    SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 26 (UPI) -- Actor Owen Wilson was taken to a hospital in Santa Monica, Calif., Sunday, reportedly after attempting suicide.

    Wilson was transported to St. John’s Hospital. Citing sources, The National Enquirer and Star magazine said the star of "Wedding Crashers" and "Starsky & Hutch" had cut his left wrist and taken an undetermined amount of pills.

    He was found by a family member who called for help.

    Santa Monica police confirmed only that the actor had been taken to a hospital, TMZ.com reported.

    "On Sunday Aug. 26. 2007 at 12:10 pm officers from the Santa Monica Police Department responded to a medical assistance call from the Santa Monica Fire Department,” the police said in a news release. "The person was transported to a local hospital where they are being treated."

    Citing medical privacy laws, the police did not release any further information.

    The Enquirer said Wilson’s wrist was stitched and bandaged at the hospital, and that Wilson would “be detoxed.”

    A call to Wilson's publicist was not immediately returned. TMZ said.

    Must be rough being young, rich, famous, and universally adored. :icon_shrug:

    A decent entertainer ... I thought his part as Hansel in the movie "Zoolander" was rip-roaring hilarious. Before that I did not have a clue who he was.

    For a guy who has tried to commit suicide, he has a movie coming out this spring called "Drillbit Taylor" as well as "Marley & Me" for sometime in 2008.


    With the money he has, I would just retire and take it easy as if I won the lottery. Then again, with the $$$$ he has he can hire help to clean up his act. Entertainers are a dime a dozen anyhow.
