Los Angeles police have confirmed actor Owen Wilson did try to kill himself at his Californian home on Sunday.
The 38-year-old was taken by ambulance from his Santa Monica property to the emergency room at the nearby St. John’s Hospital at midday on Sunday.
Reports immediately began circulating that Wilson had cut his wrists and taken pills in an attempt to end his life. He was reportedly found by big brother Andrew, who called the authorities.
And now the Santa Monica Police Department’s Calls For Service report – obtained by news show Extra – lists the reason for the emergency 911 call to Wilson‘s address as an “attempted suicide”.
The phone call was received by authorities at 12.08pm on Sunday and “cleared” nearly five hours later at 5.07pm.
Wilson made no mention of the controversy in a statement he released on Monday: “I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time.”
The actor’s family was seen at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was reportedly transferred to, on Sunday night. A hospital spokesman reported Wilson to be in a “good condition” on Monday.
