There is a variation of the interview above that has a little more Andrew in it and is funnier. Now we have Paul mentioning Owen's mystery older brother. Heck, yes, THE Sexy Beast rivals any man...even with a chunk missing from his leg.
SheKnows: Owen, in the movie both you and Paul are chasing Reese’s heart, who do you see as a rival in real life?
Owen Wilson: My older brother is a rival. He’s in the movie a little bit. I remember I threw out the first pitch at an Orioles game. They didn’t have me stand on the mound. They had me kind of loft it in there. He saw it on ESPN and he said, "You didn’t exactly bring the heat with it brother." I said, "Well, let’s see what you can do." [Laughs] Then, he got to throw out a first pitch at a Rangers game. He threw it so hard with a perfect strike that the announcer said, "Is it too late to sign this guy?" [Laughs]
SheKnows: Any rivals in love?
Owen Wilson: Still, my older brother [laughs].
Paul Rudd: I think the answer is the same for me, Owen’s older brother. [We all laugh.]
Sugar - What is the cure for a shark bite? I think you are supposed to have someone pee on it, right? No, wait. That is jelly fish. Maybe you have someone suck the venom out? Hmm, that doesn't sound right either.
Owen Wilson's brother Andrew escapes after being attacked by a shark in Hawaii By Daily Mail Reporter Last updated at 4:37 PM on 18th December 2010 Comments (0) Add to My Stories Injured: Andrew Wilson was bitten by by a shark while surfing in Hawaii When Owen Wilson's brother phoned to say he had survived a shark attack, he was left waiting for the punch line. But Andrew was deadly serious. The older brother of actors Owen and Luke was bitten on the foot by a shark as he surfed with friends in Hawaii earlier this month.

He was great last night, so funny and spirited! I loved that bit about Andrew and the shark! I was just worried when he mentioned the surfing incident he had himself, and the 24 stitches, I am so glad he was able to get himself back to shore and get to the doctor. You guys both have to be careful out there! Another part I really liked, he said he left the Superbowl at half time and watched the last part at home with Laura and Bob in Dallas! You can tell he's still really proud and happy about getting to play on the field before the game, that was awesome. And you know Ford is going to be loved and doted on, he's a little heartbreaker already!
As usual, just grabbing at any tiny little Andrew tidbit that I can find. Here is a little article about a Canadian Inn that the stars (including Owen) of The Big Year stayed in. Andrew is mentioned in the text and since THE Sexy Beast needs some lovin' here, too, I am posting it in his area. :)
DAWSON CITY, YUKON—The walls of an old Klondike brothel have heard a lot of laughs.
When Bombay Peggy’s was a bordello, credit for most of the smiles went to the good time girls.
Then she got all dolled up into a posh inn, and last summer, three stars of comedy bedded down.
Steve Martin got the Gold Room, Jack Black the Lipstick Room and Owen Wilson the Green Room.
Members of their entourages, including Black’s father, and the assistant assigned to handle Wilson’s dog, took up the rest of the three-story building, where the boardwalk meets at the corner of Second Ave. and Princess St.
The house was built in 1900, and was at times a mining company’s headquarters, a family home, a boarding house and a bank building. By the 1950s, Margaret Vera Dorval, nicknamed Bombay Peggy, ran a brothel and a bootlegging operation there.
The building was sinking into a swamp, and home to virtual squatters, when Wendy Cairns, a former can-can dancer, and partner launched a rescue in 1998. They moved it across town, renovated it for 14 months, and gave Dawson a new landmark.
Peggy’s isn’t the biggest hotel in Dawson, but she’s the most seductive, making the converted whorehouse the obvious place to house Hollywood actors.
They came to the Yukon to film a short scene in Tombstone Territorial Park, which was a stand-in for the Aleutian island of Attu in the movie The Big Year.
The film, due out this fall, is based on the true story of three compulsive bird watchers, a corporate boss, a beefy nuclear power plant engineer and a New Jersey roofing contractor on a year-long, 443,000-kilometre odyssey to see or hear the most species.
They zigzagged across North America in a competition to set a new birding record in 1998 and discovered all sorts of things about themselves along the way.
In the words of the backflap of Colorado journalist Mark Obmascik’s book, the story “shows the lengths to which people will go to pursue their dreams, to conquer and categorize — no matter how low the stakes.”
It took a week in June to capture what is likely just a few minutes in the film and Bombay Peggy’s Victorian Inn and Pub was the actors’ home.
Dawson City, where the dirt streets, boardwalks and brightly painted facades look straight out of the Gold Rush days of the 1890s, is not a Hollywood star’s typical habitat.
For one thing, it’s a schmooze-free zone. And the only rope lines you’ll find in Dawson are attached to the George Black Ferry, which plies the Yukon River around the clock in summer.
Most Dawsonites let the celebrities be. Afforded that respectful distance, the stars came a bit more down to earth.
“I think Dawson must be a little liberating,” said Cairns.
Wilson and his older brother Andrew wandered into the inn’s pub once in a while and got pretty much the same reaction every newcomer gets at the bar.
“It didn’t feel super weird,” said Kyla MacArthur, the inn’s night manager and one of the town’s favourite barkeeps. “There wasn’t a big hush in the room when any of them came in. People would say, ‘Hello,’ or what have you.
“And then they just did whatever everyone else was doing — which was have a drink and chat with whoever it was they were sitting with.”
Wilson and his brother, who is also an actor, took a liking to the inn’s bicycles, blue Raleigh roadsters with high handlebars, pedal brakes and Canadian flag bells.
They often told their drivers to take a break and rode the bikes around town, with a gaggle of kids furiously pedalling about 10 metres behind, laughing in a cloud of dust.
Bombay Peggy’s is full of antiques and artworks and has a strict rule against pets.
Wilson’s people insisted the actor couldn’t live without his dog. Mindful of reports that Wilson is fragile after trying to commit suicide in 2007, Cairns made an exception — on condition that Wilson’s personal assistant keep the dog out of trouble.
Wilson wanted to bring the pet into the pub, but the ban on four-legged animals there stood. And Wilson’s personal chef had to work from a kitchen across the street.
Martin, who is so private he comes across as an introvert, spent a lot of time alone, practising his banjo in his first-floor corner room.
But Dawson’s charm loosened Martin up, too. Several nights he emerged from his musical sanctum and, while the can-can girls danced, Martin tried his luck at the tables in Diamond Tooth Gertie’s Gambling Hall, Canada’s oldest casino.
Everyone remembers Black, often manic on the big screen, as the most low-maintenance VIP of the bunch in Dawson. One night, he just missed last call at the Snake Pit, a dingy beer parlour that has an early close at 11 p.m. The bartender refused to serve the star.
“I don’t think anyone even noticed who he was,” Cairns laughed. “He can sort of fit in. And at that time of night, a lot of people had probably been there for a long time. They would have been pretty drunk by then.”
Besides, it can be hard to make out faces in the pit, even ones as big as Black’s. At least staff recommended he try the lounge next door, which has a house band.
Black might just as well have gone down the road to the Downtown Hotel and had a sip of the Sourtoe, a cocktail made with a dehydrated human toe preserved in salt.
Oh, what a wonderful visual I am getting from this thread I found out on the interwebs. Close your eyes and imagine THE Sexy Beast swimming naked in Owen's pool. Ahhhhh. Unlike George Costanza, I bet shrinkage would not be a problem for our manly man.
I am going to figure out how to hijack a NASA satellite and redirect it so that it stays permanently perched over that pool. Andrew's fine a$$ is one site I want to see, dammit! I wonder if Google Earth would be any help here. Hmmm.
There are some tidbits here about all three of the handsome hermanos but you know I have to show ACW the love so I am posting the link here. Nana - there is a little mention of Owen buying the house next door in Santa Monica. You were all over that one, weren't you? You smart Canadian, you!
Apparently the current National Enquirer has a story on Andrew accused of being a deadbeat father to the four children he fathered with four different women with Owen pressuring him to step up and take responsibility. I wasn't sure if it was known how many kids he had, I thought it was three.
Hopefully not...anywho I had the idea that he was a father of 1 child and he appears devoted in the few pictures of them that are published. Maybe this article that is mentioned is a made up story, it is the "National Enquirer" after all. #unsure# #unsure# #unsure#
I don't know about 4, but I know for sure about 2. Luke mentioned one on a late night show, I think it was Jimmy Kimmel. Look around on here, it's mentioned somewhere. Jack is his name. I've seen other sites that have mentioned another, but I'm not sure how valid the info is. I have tried looking on the net for info to validate what lomonade said, but found nothing as of yet. I haven't been to the store yet, so haven't looked at the latest edition of the National Enquirer. I would like to think that he's not a deadbeat father, but people make mistakes.
Modified to add: Just did a little grocery shopping, perused the pages of the Enquirer, didn't come across this article, is there a link someone can share for this?
I read this article and I think it is garbage. Not for a minute do I believe any of this is true...
Here is what I read on line....Published on: January 6, 2012 NATIONAL ENQUIRER
“Midnight in Paris” star OWEN WILSON’s big brother is a deadbeat dad who owes tens of thousands of dollars in child support!
Actor Andrew Wilson, 47, has fathered four children with four different women, and insiders say new dad Owen, 43, is pressuring him to take financial and emotional responsibility for them.
“Andrew is pretty much a good-time Charlie,” a longtime family friend told The ENQUIRER. “He works on films when he can get them and the rest of the time he kicks back.
“It breaks Owen’s heart that his big brother is a deadbeat dad. He’s trying to get Andrew to grow up and start acting like a man.”
Andrew – who’s had smallroles in “Rushmore,” “Zoolander” and “The Royal Tenenbaums” – hasn’t achieved nearly the same success in Hollywood as brothers Owen and Luke, 40.
And Owen feels that’s part of the reason he’s never settled down, said the source.
“Andrew has no shame!” the family friend confided.
“He’s basically on the lam from three women in California that he owes child support to, and now he has a new baby in Hawaii.
"Andrew’s California offspring include a 2-year-old son with clothing designer Miki Dinning, a 7-year-old son with his ex-wife Nnogo Obiamiwe, and another child with an ex-girlfriend. Miki sued Andrew For child support but hasn’t been able to serve him with legal papers. Andrew is hanging out in Hawaii, and no one knows where he’s living,” the source divulged.
“Owen is giving Miki money to help take care of the baby.”
