Owen Wilson has asked the public to respect his privacy after being admitted to a hospital in L.A. for what they say, “undisclossed” reasons.

“I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time," a statement from Wilson said.

A spokesman for Cedars-Sinai medical centre, Cynthia Harding, didn’t comment about the possible reasons for Owen’s sudden hospitalization, but he did say that he was in a good condition upon admitting to a hospital.

Santa Monica police said they had attended to an emergency call from a house on the street in which the actor lives. Media reports claim that Wilson had to be hospitalised after an apparent suicide attempt.
