Barely a week after he attempted to take his life, Owen Wilson is giving friends hope for a turnaround. "Obviously, he has been through a lot," director Wes Anderson told reporters at a Monday press conference to promote The Darjeeling Limited, in which Wilson costars. "I can tell you that he has been doing very well, he has been making us laugh." Anderson reiterated Wilson's request for space during this delicate juncture, saying, "When he is ready he's going to speak for himself much better than any of us could" - and in that charming, "Golly-gee, shucks" voice of his.
