Bonding with Jackie Chan while filming Shanghai Noon
Being in a bathtub with Jackie Chan, I don’t know, it has a way of bonding you I’ll tell you that. I don’t know if there are some weird undertones. It was like we had met in Los Angeles and we didn’t have that much to say to each other but, after that bathtub scene, we were great friends. What it really was was that when we’d play off each other, it really was fun. We really did become friends.”
Owen Wilson quote on Sheryl Crow and other women
“Going out with someone who’s doing the same thing as you, who’s in the public eye, can be a problem… You want a break when you come home. You don’t want someone with the same issues as you maybe reminding you of stuff you don’t like in yourself. That being said, I don’t think being in the spotlight had anything to do with me and Sheryl not working out. The story of our relationship is the same story I’ve had with most of my relationships. I was lucky enough to find a great girl and, because of my lack of… focus, the relationship went south”.

Quote on being a pessamistic optimist

Are those your happy shoes?
“I don’t feel like I’m a hundred times happier. Can’t we petition someone to make it so that outside stuff is the key to happiness? I’m tired of people always saying, ‘It’s gotta come from you!’ Can’t it come from, like, a new pair of shoes?”
