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 PerezHilton.com: “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.
