Gwyneth Paltrow's actress mother, Blythe Danner, was "heartbroken" to hear the news that Owen Wilson tried to kill himself last month.

Danner worked with Wilson on the 2000 comedy Meet the Parents and its 2004 sequel Meet the Fockers, while her daughter Paltrow once dated Wilson's younger brother Luke.

She says, "It was heartbreaking to hear. This is such a tough business and here he is at the pinnacle, so you wonder how this happened. We just send him the best and loving wishes for good health.

"He just kind of breezed in and breezed out for Meet the Fockers--he was only there for one day and for Fockers he was a fine fiddle.

"(It's) very sad because I know his parents a little bit. I've met them and Luke and they've been so wonderful to us and anytime and anything like that happens, your heart goes out to them."

Wilson allegedly slashed his wrists and was found distressed at his Santa Monica, California, home by his brother Andrew on Aug. 26. He was taken to a nearby hospital emergency room and then spent a week under supervision at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
