Owen Wilson- Steve Coogan Are Still Friends
British comedian Steve Coogan, best known for the character, Octavius, which he had essayed in blockbuster hit movie ‘Night at the Museum’, and Owen Wilson who starred with him in the film are still good friends.
American singer, Courtney Love sometime back claimed that because of British funnyman, Steve Coogan, the ‘Wedding Crashers’ star attempted suicide in 2007.
Owen Wilson was hospitalized two years ago, after he was found from his home in Santa Monica, Los Angeles in a state which has been alleged due to taking pills and slashing his wrists.
Following the incident, Love, who previously dated Coogan, blamed the comedian for Wilson's downfall, saying, "I was just out of rehab, and he was right there with the drugs. I tried to warn Owen. I tried to warn his friends... I hope from the bottom of my heart that Owen stays the hell away from that guy”.
But Steve Coogan strongly denied the charges and cited the incident “unfounded, unhelpful and hurtful".
Steve Coogan said, "It was a complete fabrication put out about by someone who had a different agenda. In America they realised it was b******s as soon as they established that it was spread by someone who was trying to throw a grenade in my path. The industry made it very clear to me that they knew, so thankfully it had no effect on my career or my friendship with Owen”.
"Yes, Owen did have a bit of a personal wobble between the first Night At The Museum film and the one we've just finished, but he is totally fine now. I spent last Thanksgiving with his family in Texas. We're working together again this year. It never affected my friendship with him at all”, Steve Coogan added.
