Brad Pitt has eating things in movies. Matthew McConaughey has that thing where he makes weird noises. But if you’re looking for one Hollywood tic that people will be riffing on when we’re all floating on the last remaining iceberg, it’s the Owen Wilson ‘Wow!’ He’s made us laugh in movies from ‘Bottle Rocket’ to ‘Zoolander’ and now he’s bringing us together. With his wow.
An actual ‘Wow Meet Up’ has been organised by fans for Sunday March 25 in Trafalgar Square. Under the shadow of Lord Nelson, um, Lord Wilson will be homaged via film quotes and wows. If you’re not busy rappelling down Mount Vesuvius or sunbathing off the southern coast of St. Bart's with spider monkeys at the time, find your way to the fountains for 1pm and get your wow on.
