Starsky & Hutch star in suicide bid?

Hollywood actor Owen Wilson is being treated in hospital following a suspected suicide attempt, according to reports from the US.

The Starsky & Hutch star is thought to have cut his wrists after swallowing a number of pills at his home in Los Angeles.

David Perel, editor-in-chief of The National Enquirer, told gossip website “Owen Wilson has now been transferred from St. John’s to another Los Angeles area hospital. His brothers Andrew and Luke are with him.”

Owen’s parents were also seen visiting Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Sunday night.

Perel added: “Andrew found him after the suicide attempt and called an ambulance. Both of Owen’s wrists were slashed superficially and Owen had taken an overdose of pills.

“Owen was found with a nearly empty bottle of pills next to him. He was at his house in Santa Monica.”

The comedian is famous for his blockbuster roles in such films as Starsky & Hutch, Zoolander and Meet The Parents.

Owen, who is currently filming Tropic Thunder with pal Ben Stiller, is now thought to be in a stable condition.

His spokesperson is yet to comment on the reports.
