Owen Wilson began his career as an undergrad in Austin, Texas, where he and roommate Wes Anderson cowrote the 1993 indie short Bottle Rocket, starring the comic actor and his brother Luke.
After moving to Hollywood, Wilson continued to collaborate with Anderson (Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums) between high-profile roles in Shanghai Noon and Wedding Crashers. His string of successful comedies cemented his place in Hollywood's "Frat Pack" with Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn.
But in 2007, the funny man with his mop of blond hair and crooked nose, revealed a darker side when he attempted suicide shortly after his split from You, Me and Dupree costar Kate Hudson. Wilson has since bounced back, returning to work and starting a family with girlfriend Jade Duell, with whom welcomed son, Robert Ford Wilson, in January 2011.
