Owen Wilson was bornon 18 November 1968 in Dallas, American, is American actor. Owen Wilson is an actor cum screenwriter who is famous for his collaboration with the film maker Wes Anderson with whom he has worked on several projects. Wilson and Anderson had met while they both attended the University of Texas and began their career by writing the screenplay for ‘Bottle Rocket’. The movie was directed by Anderson and starred Owen and his brother Luke. The movie bombed at the box office but drew the attention of critics and got positive reviews which helped launch the duo’s careers. As a youngster he was a big troublemaker at school and was expelled for stealing a teacher’s notebook. Growing up as the middle child with one elder and one younger brother, Owen was always on the lookout for some mischief that would set him apart from his brothers and get him his parents’ attention. But once he entered the world of films the loving brother took along both his siblings with him to Hollywood. With his distinctive crooked nose, smooth comedic style and deadpan humour he soon found himself an unlikely candidate for comedy films like ‘The Cable Guy’. Soon he was acting in a number of commercially successful films, many of which he also co-wrote. Along with his successful career, the actor is also famous for his link-ups with several beautiful women.
