A Dose Of Reality
I was away on vacation when I found out that one of my favorite, contemporary actors was taken to the hospital due to an alleged attempt at suicide. Owen Wilson was apparently found by one of his brothers and a call was quickly made to 911 for assistance. Of course, it's all very murky as to what happened and we may never know the entire truth. His attorney only released a statement yesterday that the actor did not take an overdose of pills, did not have his stomache pumped and only had anti-depressants in his system which were prescribed by a doctor. The family has asked for privacy at this time. Is it just me or does it seem like there are an inordinate amount of celebrities going off the deep end these days. My initial reaction is what do they have to be so depressed about, but I suppose living in a fish bowl can have its disadvantages and having too much too soon is not such a good thing afterall. In any event, I only hope that this young man recovers quickly. He has so much ahead of him, it would be a damn shame if it ended all too soon.
