Of all the stars expected to attend last night's L.A. premiere of new film The Darjeeling Limited, star Owen Wilson was certainly not one of them. And yet, there he was — only weeks after his suicide attempt — on stage with the film's director, Wes Anderson, and co-stars, Adrian Brody, Natalie Portman and Jason Schwartzman.

Though Owen skipped the traditional red carpet proceedings at the event, slipping into the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre via a private entrance, he did make a surprise appearance with the film's cast and crew before the screening began. And while Owen didn't say anything, frequent collaborator Anderson, who shared an Oscar-nomination with Wilson for their Royal Tennenbaum's screenplay, did say about his troubled friend, "I've never made a movie without him, and I hope I never have to."

In the film, Owen plays one of three brothers who set out on a spiritual quest aboard a train through rural India. This marks the fifth time he and college pal Wes Anderson have worked together on a feature film, dating back to their indie hit Bottle Rocket, which also introduced Owen's younger brother, Luke, to film audiences.
