The Darjeeling Limited actor asking for privacy as he heals.

Actor Owen Wilson has reportedly been hospitalized after a suicide attempt, according to two tabloid publications. He is in stable condition.

If you haven’t heard the news by now, here are the distressing details: “Sources” told both The National Enquirer and Star magazine that Wilson was hospitalized Sunday for attempting suicide. Without getting too graphic, suffice to say details include a cut left wrist, pills, and detox. Wilson was reportedly found by a family member around noon Sunday, and was being treated at Santa Monica’s St. John’s hospital. Click here for the National Enquirer “World Exclusive.”

Although a few outlets are reporting the story, it seems they are all sourcing the Enquirer and Star (see Variety, Fox News). TMZ was able to confirm Owen’s hospitalization in a statement from the Santa Monica Police Department (which, incidentally, kind of reveals Wilson’s home address) but verification has yet to come from non-tabloid sources. Expect more info to come soon.

**UPDATE**
Owen Wilson has released a press statement to Reuters asking the media for privacy as he recovers from Sunday’s incident.

“I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time,” Wilson, 38, said in a statement released to Reuters.

In other tragic news, over at TMZ they’ve posted pictures — not just the story, but photos — of a very severe car accident involving Nick Hogan (son of Hulk, co-star of their family reality show Hogan Knows Best). Hogan is reportedly in serious condition, and his passenger is listed in critical condition. And while we might usually leave these and other celebrity items out of RT News, last week director John Singleton accidentally killed a pedestrian who was crossing the street outside of a crosswalk in Los Angeles. Drugs and alcohol were not involved, and Singleton will not be charged in the accident.
