Wilson’s hospital entry a mystery

SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Owen Wilson was reported in good condition Monday, a day after he was taken from his home by ambulance, a hospital spokeswoman said.

“I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time,” the 38-year-old actor said in a statement released through publicist Ina Treciokas.

No further comments were expected, she said.

Wilson was at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, said hospital spokeswoman Cynthia Harding. He was initially taken to St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica.

He “is here in good condition,” Harding said.

It wasn’t known why Wilson was hospitalized, but a neighbor said a police car, fire truck and ambulance were outside the actor’s gated house around noon Sunday.

“These guys were kind of taking their time taking a stretcher out of the ambulance, then they went into the house,” said neighbor Geoffry White, 61, who lives directly across the street.

Santa Monica Fire Battalion Chief Jose Torres said Monday the department responded to a call that involved Wilson. The chief wouldn’t comment on Wilson’s injuries or condition, citing federal privacy laws.

Wilson’s screen credits include “Wedding Crashers” and “You, Me and Dupree.” He was nominated for a screenwriting Oscar for 2001’s “The Royal Tenenbaums.”
