Lessons In Celebrity Journalism

Given the news that Owen Wilson tried to kill himself, would you say:

  • Well, if I’d been in “You, Me, And Dupree,” I’d do the same thing.
  • I’d feel bad, but it’s like seeing a clown on fire: probably just part of the act.
  • Maybe he’s doing research for a new movie in which he plays a troubled young man who overcomes depression through interpretive dance and homosexual panic jokes.
  • All three!

Ultimately, we went with the first one. It’s short and to the point. The second one would be better for one of the more attention-seeking celebutards, but Wilson hasn’t really done anything dumb off-screen. The third is too long and confusing. And of course you can’t cram in all three (which was my original instinct).

  1. That’s just incentive, and not even particularly funny (but then again that pretty much describes You, Me & Dupree…but of course that’s beside the point).
