LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Oscar-nominated film star Owen Wilson, best known for movies such as "Wedding Crashers," has asked the media to allow him to "heal in private" following numerous reports that he was hospitalized over the weekend.
"I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time," Wilson said in a statement released to Reuters.
Various news reports surfaced late on Sunday that Wilson, 38, was in Cedars Sinai Medical Center in the Beverly Hills area, and some reports cited unnamed sources as saying he had tried to commit suicide.
But his spokeswoman, Ina Treciokas, declined to comment beyond Wilson's statement, and it was unclear exactly how or what the actor's problems were.
Fire and police officials confirmed they had responded to a "medical aid" situation at Wilson's home on Sunday, but declined further comment, citing confidentiality laws.
Hospital spokespersons also declined to comment.
We love Owen Wilson! A total sweet hottie. Our thoughts and prayers are with he and his family.
