Nearly detained in Thailand

Makes Statement5 Comments

Wilson tells Kimmel that he is nearly detained in Thailand while on his way back to the U.S. from filming an action thriller No Escape.

The day that I was leaving, somebody asked for a picture and gave me something to put around my neck… I guess this thing that I put on identified me with the rebels – I’m not kidding. All of a sudden, they (authorities) were calling the prime minister’s office saying that I was going to be detained from leaving (sic) because these colors and that whistle meant that I was siding with the protesters.

Marley & Me

Film Appearance0 Comments

Wilson plays John in this dramedy directed by David Frankel from the memoir written by John Grogan. John is married to Jenny, played by Jennifer Aniston, and together they adopt a Labrador puppy. The 12 pound puppy quickly grows into a 100 pound unstoppable bundle of energy that dominates their lives and teaches them how to be the best people they can be.

That was what was nice about the movie that the situations didn’t feel ever contrived. Everything seemed kind of relatable so it wasn’t difficult to understand, this makes sense what he’s feeling.
