Dennis Hopper and Owen Wilson

A few years ago Owen Wilson came on television. My husband had no idea who he was, but he stopped and said "Is that Dennis Hopper's son?". I was like "NO! That is Owen Wilson". My husband went on to insist that it was Dennis Hopper's son. Now I knew that was not true. However there are some freaky coincidences that just might make it true.

First off, they do look alike, and their mannerisms and voice are similar too.

Second off, Owen Wilson was born in Dallas, Texas on 11/18/1968.
Easy Rider was released in 1969 which means it was being filmed in 1968 in the area of Texas.
The movie was filmed from Los Angeles to New Orleans. Now I am no geographical genius, but Texas lies somewhere betwixt (I love that word) Los Angeles and New Orleans.

Third, they are both extremely talented. They are both writers and producers in addition to being great actors.

I am not trying to start rumors because that is not my style, but they DO look and act alike.
Plus in my humble opinion, Luke and Owen do not look very much alike. They could totally be half brothers. As I said not trying to start rumors, but more or less just musing out loud here on my blog.

What do you think?

Your dear hubby has a good point! They do look like father and son!

Now, does your 'son' Forrest look like his mommy? (just kidding)

xoxox to everyone from Astro and I!

Hey Barb!
Yes, Forrest looks like me. He has spots, and I have freckles!

I hope you are doing well and loving the new job.

Big kisses to you and Astro Von Pirate.

No, no, you should totally start rumor mongering. That is 50% more interesting than anything else I've ever read about Owen Wilson. (Okay, so not so much about Hopper - any rumor a mere mortal could make up about him would not be anywhere nearly as weird as the stuff that is actually true.)

Oh criminy - why do I ALWAYS end up with the barely readable 15 letter smooshed up word verification code?

Oh, this has me laughing. And you're so right that Luke and Owen look nothing alike.

Rumor away!

Hi Katie,

Ok, per your request I will continue spreading rumors. I think if I gave it a chance, i just might be good at it!
Sometimes word verification can be a pain--remember on Annie's when you had NKOTB? HA!

Hello Tessa,

How are you? I have been loving your blog!

I believe that there are lots of celebrities who have the twin in Hollywood. Owen and Dennis is a good pull. Here are a coulple that I have come up with. Let me know what you think.

Skeet Ulrich - A younger less talented Johnny Depp

Scott Wolf - A younger less interesting Tom Cruise.

Lyndsey Lohan - A younger Linda Blair...oh, wait I'm confused...they both just vomit. One for movies the other because she is trapped in her Hollywood I Want To Be A Star Forever But I Have Know Talent Or Looks lifestyle.

Paris Hilton - She is a younger version of a Crack Whore but she is not as interesting, has less talent, and serves less purpose on this earth.

Hey, I like this game. I'll come up with some more.

Hmmmm... interesting thoughts. Skeet Ulrich and Johnny Depp...maybe if Skeet just quit brushing his teeth for about a year.

I can see Scott Wolf as Tom Cruise too. Where is Scott Wolf these days? He will always be Bailey to me.

You do not thing La Lohan has looks? She looks horrible all skinny with blonde hair, but when she was a redhead with big boobs, I thought she was very cute. Still not talented, but cute.

Paris Hilton does not deserve comment---BLECH!

I know a young actor in Hollywood named Curt or something like that who looks just like a young, blonde Christoper Reeve. Do you know who I am talking about?
Tee hee hee!

I wish I liked Owen Wilson (and hello, could I please learn to hit 'refresh' on a page? I've missed SO MANY FREAKING POSTS because I am an idiot). I find him so hopelessly unattractive. And the VOICE. THE VOICE.

Rachel McAdams would so not even bother with him in real life.

I'm totally spreading this rumor.

(Jonna, I'm even later to this party than YOU!)

p.s. PJ, apologies--my bloggername link is a total dead end, but my username works on non-Blogspot blogs :-I

Hello Jamie and Jonna!
I agree Jonna--Rachel would totally not mess with him. I do not find him attractive at all, but I do love his wacky humor, and I think he is a wacky writer--which I love.

Hi Yesrie!
Thanks for visiting. Thanks also for spreading this rumor. I feel a crusade coming on!!!

LMAO! I can see Hopper being his father, I can also see myself as Luke's girlfriend!

Hello Sweet Storm!

I can see Luke as your boyfriend too! Luke is pretty cute.

I hardly think this lady's husband is the first (hardly) of many people who saw Owen Wilson for the first time and thought, "Say, that must be Dennis Hopper's son." I noticed it (the father/son resemblance) first time I saw Philips. Probably scores of others have too, but, like me, they figure if they are father and son they have their own reasons for being mum about it. So one never nears it talked about. On one of the celrbrity news segments following up on Philip's recent hospitalization the program mentioned "Owens friend Dennis Hopper" had sent his best wishes. Philips' only friend over 30.

This is a theory that I formulated as well about a year ago after seeing Dennis Hopper on a commercial and noticing his voice, mannerism and facial features are extremely similar to Owen Wilson. Thanks for your husbands attention...

I can't believe it...I have been saying the same thing since I first seen Owen. Too crazy or is it?

I am watching Easy Rider right now and thought wow if I didn't know better that is Owen Wilson but of course I knew it was Dennis Hopper and immediately went on the net to see if they were father and son. They have to be! Just like Prince Harry and Diana's ex lover...the resemblence is uncanny!

We just saw Dennis Hopper in a film and my husband said the EXACT same thing as yours! He asked if Owen Wilson was Dennis Hopper's son!!

Their voice inflections and mannerisms are practically identical. How eerie. I immediately suggested he may be a child out of wedlock... then I saw that your blog suggests the same thing :) Funny.

I doubt it's true though... let's investigate... does Owen know his father?? :o)

I remember an old Twilight Zone episode with Hopper in it. I remember thinking how much Owen looks like him. Dennis was very young in the episode.
