Owen Wilson stays healthy by exercising and eating healthily. Nonetheless, he admits that when it comes to his eating habits, he still tends to eat whatever he wants. This is especially true when he’s tired. But the actor tries to be as healthy as possible, at least most of the time he does.
“When you’re tired, all of a sudden you’re like, ordering cheeseburgers and French fries. When you’re being healthy, getting exercise and enough sleep, you really want to continue that momentum by eating healthy,” said Wilson. “I’m not a vegetarian, I eat everything, but I try to eat a lot of vegetables, drink vegetable juices, and try to eat organic, clean, locally sourced food. It makes you feel better.”
