Owen Wilson was reported to be in good condition at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles yesterday after what has widely been reported as an alleged failed suicide attempt.
Unfortunately this is a business, and Hollywood right now is more concerned with what impact this will have on the currently filming “Tropic Thunder” and the soon-to-be-released “The Darjeeling Limited” in which he plays key roles.
DreamWorks declined comment on whether the actor is expected to take part in “Thunder” or whether his cameo role could be recast, but filming has not been affected.
Having already completed long-lead press commitments on behalf of ‘Darjeeling’, it’s unsure whether Wilson will be involved in further promotion of the film.
The actor meanwhile has been well enough to release the following brief statement: “I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time.”
