No drugs involved, says Owen's attorney

Owen Wilson did not suffer a drug overdose on Sunday but he was taking anti-depressants, the actor's attorney tells Access Hollywood. The actor, who was rushed to hospital after allegedly cutting his wrists in an attempted suicide, did not have his stomach pumped, says the attorney. Wilson was found by his brother Luke in his Santa Monica home, and a 911 call report showed it was logged as an "attempted suicide." Media outlets had speculated that he was also found with an empty bottle of pills beside him, but the attorney said he was not aware of any drugs, other than anti-depressants, being in Wilson's system at the time of the incident. Wilson is currently recovering at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and has asked that people respect his privacy during this difficult time. The Santa Monica City Attorney's office has announced they will not release the 911 call made by Luke. "In reaching this decision the City believes that in many instances no person should have to worry about whether placing a call for emergency assistance will automatically make his or her medical request open to public review," the City Attorney's office said in a press release on Wednesday.

Keep your chin up, Owen. You're a fabulous actor. You make me laugh in every movie that you're in. In life there will always be ups and downs. Even when life seems unbearable, if you look hard enough you will find the right path. You can get through this.
