I wonder why he tried to kill himself. So sad. What is he depressed over or it is a chemical imbalance. I pray for him. I hope he gets the help he needs.

this makes me very sad. I hope that he gets whatever help he needs. Of all the stars in Hollywood, he would have been one of the last I would have expected this from.

This is so sad. It just goes to show you that you can have tons of money and lots of fans and it won't make you happy. We love you Owen, get better... we are all praying for you!

Very depressing news. It's hard to imagine that someone who's an accomplished actor and has things like family, friends, and money to afford a comfortable lifestyle would want to take his own life.

I hope he gets the help he needs.

So relieved that someone with everything is as miserable and tortured as everyone else.
Great job keeping up the happy slacker image for so long Owen.
