Owen Wilson’s quirky personality and irresistibly crooked smile make him one of our Hollywood favourites. Wilson found his film break in the 2000 comedy Shanghai Noon, starring opposite Jackie Chan. A year later, Wilson collaborated with stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Stiller, and brother Luke in the Royal Tenenbaums, a box office hit and screenplay Academy Award Win. (Wilson has appeared in eight movies with long-time friend and fellow comedian Ben Stiller.) He played the role of Eli Cash, a druggie turned celebrity. Ironically, the character was only a few years off from Wilson’s real life. A stint with drugs allegedly given him by singer Courtney Love preceded a suicide attempt in August 2007. Tabloids hungrily lapped up the gossip, and stalked Wilson so closely that he stated, “I respectfully ask that the media allow me to heal in private during this difficult time.”

A few months later, Owen Wilson was back . His fans were unfazed; many were still raving about his $200 million performance in Wedding Crashers alongside Vince Vaughn, and with bombshell Kate Hudson in You, Me, and Dupree. Strangely, Wilson hasn’t dated many costars, but Kate Hudson is one of few. The pair split in 2007, but are reportedly dating again…and then split again. He’s also up for doing some crazy things, remember him and Jennifer Aniston on a German television show eating a dog biscuit?  Wilson will be the voice of Lightning McQueen in Cars 2, coming in 2011.
