BIOGRAPHY

A comic actor whose talents spread to writing and producing, Owen Wilson teamed up with college roommate Wes Anderson to help put Austin on the filmmaking map with their debut film, "Bottle Rocket" (1996). Because of the offbeat comedy's success, Wilson snagged a number of roles in both small independents and studio blockbusters. Well known for being one of Hollywood's busiest lotharios off-screen, Wilson's amorous social life earned the actor the gratitude of tabloid editors and gossip columnists for years, though he publicly hit rock bottom in 2007 for a failed suicide attempt after battling depression. Onscreen, Wilson was a founding member of Hollywood's comedy "Frat Pack," a club which counted Vince Vaughn, Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd and Wilson's brother, Luke, among its members. Meanwhile, Wilson starred in a number of successful stand-out films, including the action comedy "Shanghai Noon" (2001) co-starring Jackie Chan, the delightfully quirky ensemble comedy, "The Royal Tenenbaums" (2001), the box office smash comedy "Wedding Crashers" (2005), the animated crowd-pleaser "Cars" (2005), and the three's-a-crowd romp, "You, Me & Dupree" (2006). Following his suicide attempt, Wilson kept public appearances to a minimum, but did star in the hit "Marley & Me" (2008), "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian" (2009), and Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" (2011), which provided him with one of the best roles of his career, while also proving that he was more than just a comedic actor.
