Owen Wilson UPDATE 4

Less than a week after his suicide attempt, Owen Wilson is back at home and being watched around the clock. "Owen is in bad mental shape but said he is thankful to be alive," says a source close to the actor, who had returned to his Santa Monica home on Saturday. "He knows he came close to ending his life, and he is happy that he was saved from himself. He is basically at home with people watching him 24/7." Owen's rep declined to comment.

Owen was hospitalized August 26 after what a police log called an "attempt suicide." He spent the next several days at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with constant visits from brothers Andrew and Luke Wilson, his parents and such friends as Wes Anderson and Woody Harrelson. Owen, who had been due to begin promoting his next film, The Darjeeling Limited at the Venice Film Festival this week, also dropped out of his next movie project, Tropic Thunder. The comedy was set to begin shooting this month, and would have paired Owen with longtime pal Ben Stiller.


On a personal note: I just watched Night At The Museum that started Owen and his friend Ben Stiller. That was an awesome movie. I truly enjoyed Owen in the movie and I am so glad that he is still with us. I hope to see more wonderful work from him in the future.
