Dear Owen Wilson,
You used to be my favorite movie star. Starsky and Hutch. Shanghai Knights. Cars.
Then came Marley and Me.
Please, go back to the writing. I like intellectuals. That also look like blond gods. (almost enough to compensate for the whole 'Owen Cunningham' thing your parents also bestowed upon you.)
Now... Marmaduke? I didn't think you could sink any lower. (both of these movies occurred AFTER his suicide attempt. Go figure.)
Did you know?
Owen and Luke's father was the first to bring Monty Python's Flying Circus to American TV where he managed KERA, a PBS station, in Dallas, TX.
Quote he should live by: "I can't think of a movie I wish I'd acted in, but there are movies I wish I'd written."
Quote of his that I live by: "I don't feel like I'm a hundred times happier. Can't we petition someone to make it so that outside stuff is the key to happiness? I'm tired of people always saying, 'It's gotta come from you!' Can't it come from, like, a new pair of shoes?"
