Owen Wilson has given his first interview since his suicide attempt – to his longtime friend, director Wes Anderson.

In the interview, to be posted online Friday at midnight, Wilson talks with the director of his latest film, The Darjeeling Limited, as part of the MySpace Artist on Artist series, according to USA Today.

Wilson has been mum about the night when cops were called to his home for what a police report labeled an “attempt suicide” in August.

At the time, Wilson asked for privacy with a statement saying, “I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time.”

There is no word on whether Wilson will address his recent troubles.

In September, at the Venice Film Festival, Anderson said that his friend was “doing well.” He added: “When he’s ready he’s going to speak for himself much better than anyone else could. He has a very good way with words.”

Wilson and Anderson have worked together on multiple projects, including Bottle Rocket and The Royal Tenenbaums, which they co-wrote, and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.
