Owen Wilson chats to us about Wonder, art, writing and more...
Wonder. It started life as an extraordinary book from R J Palacio, and it's now been turned into a hugely impressive film as well. Already a hit in the Us, the movie stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson. And on the UK press tour for the movie, Wilson spared us some time to talk about the film...
[As I enter, I notice that Wilson is reading a book about Van Gogh. I make a comment about this just as I’m setting my Dictaphone to record]
Yeah, I just picked it up off the nightstand. But I’ve been there, to the museum in Amsterdam. Do you have a favourite Van Gogh painting?
Not particularly, Van Gogh. I’m more of a Dali fan.
Have you been to any of the galleries in London while you’ve been here?
I went to go see the Basquiat show, over at the Barbican.
There was a good documentary on Basquiat recently.
