HiI have read that Owen Wilson is now ready to look forward having someone special in his life. I just thought that he would consider someone from a distance. In case, I am willing to ge to know him more and more so, if I could have a direct contact of him like email, so I could have a chance to introduce myself properly. I may not be a celebrity like you are expecting, but I have the honesty and sincerity that most of those popular don't have.Thanks, and hope to hear from you..Gina P.S. I have a lot of pictures to share upon request...

I dont know what there is about Owen, perhaps, his smoothness, charisma, but as an older woman, haven't felt love for an actor since Robert Redford, but I do for Owen Wilson, and have since first seeing him. I hope he is in more and more movies, starring like in Behind Enemy lines. He's very gifted, a bright shining star, his quotes give me the idea that he is alternative, and I HOPE he is. I'm waiting for him to throw himself into an humanitarian cause like Jolie & Pitt. We need him. I, also hope that he reads these comments. Peace, Diana

Owen,My prayers and thoughts are with you. I understand how you feel, but you have got to realize that it is nothing but a permanent solution to a very temporary problem. Please give yourself more respect then that. There are alot of people who would love to even just 1 day live in your shoes. You have more than most people will have in 3 lifetimes. Your a great person, a great actor, and I am sure a great brother and son.Love yourself first, always... then you will truly see what life is all about. I know it is hard, I myself am still working on it. Get well and remember we are thinking about you and will keep you and your family in our prayers.Just one of your many fans,God Bless you.
