Hollywood hunk Luke Wilson is annoyed at the way people expect him to compete with his actor brother Owen.

The Texan siblings, who have appeared onscreen together in such fare as Bottle Rocket, RUSHMORE and The Royal Tenenbaums, declare themselves to be the best of friends.

But Luke, ex-boyfriend of Drew Barrymore and Gwyneth Paltrow, wishes people would believe that their careers have no negative effect on their relationship.

He says, "It bothers me when people ask if Owen and I are competitive. It's not like, 'My rentals are higher, but you're beating me at the box office.'

"We're not the SUNSHINE BOYS, but we love each other. I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing if it weren't for him."
