Wilson call was for suicide attempt


Police were called to Owen Wilson's home because of an attempted suicide report, according to a police log of weekend calls.

The log does not indicate who made the call but lists "attempt suicide" as the reason for it.

Wilson was hospitalized in good condition Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Hospital officials said Tuesday they were not releasing any updated information.

His publicist, Ina Treciokas, declined to answer questions Tuesday about whether Wilson attempted to commit suicide. She said Wilson's statement asking for privacy was all that was being released.

Wilson's hospitalization Monday raised questions about the projects he has in the works. His screen credits include "Wedding Crashers" and "You, Me and Dupree." He was nominated for a screenwriting Oscar for 2001's "The Royal Tenenbaums."

The actor was initially taken by ambulance to Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica and later transferred to Cedars. The police log shows the initial call came in at 12:08 p.m. and cleared at 5:17 p.m. and a report was filed. Police said Monday that privacy laws prohibited them from releasing that document.

The police log was obtained Tuesday by CelebTV.com.

Treciokas released a brief statement on Wilson's behalf: "I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time."
