Owen Wilson's Quotes

  • "It's funny how it usually works out that I end up dying. It sort of works out, because by the time I die, I'm usually tired of working on that particular movie, so I look forward to it." - about how a lot of his characters end up dying.
  • "Being in a bathtub with Jackie Chan, I don't know, it has a way of bonding you I'll tell you that. I don't know if there are some weird undertones. It was like we had met in Los Angeles and we didn't have that much to say to each other but, after that bathtub scene, we were great friends. What it really was was that when we'd play off each other, it really was fun. We really did become friends". - on the bathtub scene in Shanghai Noon (2000).
  • "The walk off was the most uncomfortable scene for me to shoot, cos I literally have never danced in public or really even in private. I'm not a musical person and we had to dance like Michael Jackson and we had to do breakdancing..." - about the walk off scene in Zoolander (2001).
  • "Sometimes I stop and think how strange this all is. Something that began as a little idea in Austin, that Wes and I just walked around talking about between ourselves, has turned into all this." - on how his career has turned out.
  • You can think of Hollywood as high school. TV actors are freshmen, comedy actors are maybe juniors, and dramatic actors - they're the cool seniors.

Interesting Facts about Owen Wilson

  1. Neighbor of Anthony Begonia and middle brother of Luke Wilson and Andrew Wilson.
  2. Cut his chin and had to get stitches during the making of The Haunting (1999) in the scene where his character Luke is attacking the portrait of Hugh Crane with a candlestick.
  3. Despite being grateful of his success as an actor, he still considers himself a writer at heart and wishes he devoted more time to that rather than acting. Due to a busy schedule as an actor, he sadly had to miss contributing to the script for Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004), despite that he co-wrote Anderson's 3 previous films.
  4. He is known for his improvisational abilities, which he mostly contributes to films other than the more personal ones he does with Wes Anderson. Many of the funniest lines in his movies are his improvisations.
  5. Usually declines to discuss the source of his distinctive-looking nose, which was broken twice. The broken nose was apparently the result of a football injury attained while on the football team in high school (all three Wilson brothers had played high school football, the elder Andrew with the greatest success).
  6. Is a member of what the media refers to as "The Frat Pack," along with Will Ferrell, Jack Black, Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, Steve Carell, and Luke Wilson. The "Frat Pack" name is a reference to the film Old School (2003), featuring Vaughn, Ferrell and Luke Wilson, and to the wide number of films featuring the seven actors. Wilson's "Frat Pack" films include Zoolander (2001), Wedding Crashers (2005), The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), The Cable Guy (1996), and Starsky & Hutch (2004).
  7. Has been in 12 movies with Ben Stiller, up to this date.

  10. Father was a PBS exec.
  11. When appearing on Australian talk show, Rove Live (2000), he became the 1001st guest on the show. He was appearing with Isla Fisher. Fisher walked out first and therefore became the 1000th. Wilson received a meat tray.
  12. First "Frat Pack" member to receive an Academy Award nomination.
  13. Was the best man at the wedding of his brother, Andrew Wilson.
  14. Has an Australian cattle dog named Garcia.
  15. Attended his senior year in high school at the New Mexico Military Institute, instead of a normal academic school.

  17. Never wanted to be an actor, but writing is his passion.
  18. Born to Robert Andrew Wilson, an advertising executive and operator of KERA, a public TV station in Dallas, and his wife Laura Cunningham, a photographer.
