13Although often associated with Texas, where he was born and grew up, both of his parents were Irish-American Massachusetts natives who moved to Texas due to his father's work.

31Majored in English.
32He and his brother Luke Wilson were originally meant to play the Malloy brothers in Ocean's Eleven (2001), but dropped out to make The Royal Tenenbaums (2001).
33Has been in 12 movies with Ben Stiller, up to this date. They are The Cable Guy (1996), Permanent Midnight (1998), Heat Vision and Jack (1999), Meet the Parents (2000), Zoolander (2001), The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), Starsky & Hutch (2004), Meet the Fockers (2004), Night at the Museum (2006), Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (2009), Little Fockers (2010), and Night at the Museum 3 (2014).
34Is a member of, what the media refers to as, "The Frat Pack," along with Will Ferrell, Jack Black, Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, Steve Carell, and Luke Wilson. The "Frat Pack" name is a reference to the film, Old School (2003), featuring Vaughn, Ferrell and Luke Wilson, due to the wide number of films featuring the seven actors. Wilson's "Frat Pack" films include Zoolander (2001),Wedding Crashers (2005), The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), The Cable Guy (1996), and Starsky & Hutch (2004).
35Usually declines to discuss the source of his distinctive-looking nose, which was broken twice. The broken nose was apparently the result of a football injury attained while on the football team in high school (all three Wilson brothers had played high school football, the elder Andrew with the greatest success).
36He is known for his improvisational abilities, which he mostly contributes to films other than the more personal ones he does with Wes Anderson. Many of the funniest lines in his movies are his improvisations.
37Despite being grateful of his success as an actor, he still considers himself a writer at heart and wishes he devoted more time to that rather than acting. Due to a busy schedule as an actor, he sadly had to miss contributing to the script for Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004), despite that he co-wrote Anderson's 3 previous films.
38Cut his chin and had to get stitches during the making of The Haunting (1999) in the scene where his character Luke is attacking the portrait of Hugh Crane with a candlestick.
39Neighbor of Anthony Begonia and middle brother of Luke Wilson and Andrew Wilson.

#Quote
1[on being cast in The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)] Sometimes you work on a movie and you're not quite sure. You sense some anxiety in the director, that they're not sure exactly what they want. But with Wes [Anderson] you know he's definitely steering the ship and doing exactly what he thinks is best for the movie.
2[on filming Midnight in Paris (2011)]: I really didn't know, to be honest, whether it was working. This fantastical element when I go on my walks at midnight into this other world. I had my doubts because a lot of the people that I meet are iconic people from history. Who's going to play them? How's that going to work? But then I see the movie and it works. It's one of the best things in the movie. It was great.
3I've started to notice that, as you get older, mental health is as fragile as physical health. I've never had a breakdown, but you can really get sideswiped by stuff like depression. I'm an up-and-down person. That's one thing that girlfriends would complain about. I'm inconsistent, not romantic enough.
4The image - being from Texas, the slacker, surfer thing - you don't think of that and see a worrier, an angst-ridden person, I know that. Also, I'm reasonably polite and that puts people at their ease, so they think you are too.
5I don't like caring what other people think, but I do. There's a freedom when you meet someone who doesn't care, who is just themselves in all situations. I had the way I was with my friends, and then my personality with adults, and that's continued a little bit. To just be yourself, and not try to sell anything, or make a good impression, that's something worth striving towards.
6I don't feel like I'm a hundred times happier. Can't we petition someone to make it so that outside stuff is the key to happiness? I'm tired of people always saying, 'It's gotta come from you!' Can't it come from, like, a new pair of shoes?
7I think of myself as a doom person. I'm a worrier. But I like the idea of being an optimist. Maybe I'm the kind of optimist who deep down knows it's not going to work.
8It's that middle brother syndrome. The older child has a very clear identity, and the baby gets a lot of attention. The middle brother is a little bit in no-man's land. That might give you a little bit of sensitivity, a feeling that you're not clearly on the winning team, you know?
9It was maybe easier for my dad to be around Luke. They had more of a connection. Luke looked like my mother and of course, Andrew was the oldest. My dad and I would butt heads.
10(Before meeting with James L. Brooks about Bottle Rocket (1996)) Luke and I had a punching fight. I had scratch marks down my face. I had to get on the plane. It's really emotional fighting your brother. We were crying a little bit on the flight. We went to the meeting. It was such a heavy vibe from us, they didn't even ask us what had happened to our faces.
11There's that great quote from Beckett, I think, 'He had an abiding sense of melancholy that sustained him through brief periods of joy.' I like that, because I'm definitely an up-and-down person.
12I think there is a middle-child syndrome. I don't know quite what it is, but I think I suffer from it.
13(On what he enjoys most about being an actor) "I was reading some Bob Dylan interview where he said, 'It beats nine-to-five. It beat it yesterday, it beats it today, and it will beat it tomorrow.' That's how I feel. I just thank God that I'm able to make a living doing something that I can have a good time doing, and be creative."
14"The director made that decision not to use my butt...I don't know how to interpret that." - on having a body double for a scene in You, Me and Dupree (2006).
15"The studio said Bottle Rocket (1996) was their worst-testing movie in history, so I looked into the marines. Maybe I was influenced by An Officer and a Gentleman (1982). Or those marine commercials - they were so cool! Like a Led Zeppelin song come to life, full of people pulling swords from rocks and fighting lava monsters!".
16I thought that I'd be married by the time I was 30 and be starting a family, but it just hasn't worked out that way. I think that there's something about being in Hollywood. I don't know if I'm shallow, but you want to make sure that you make the right choice because you know that it's forever and I didn't realize that I have such a strong scientific side that demands that I experiment with and compare women.
  • 2005.
17To me, being cool is just the opposite of living. It's about not getting too worked up about anything, by being 'Nyah, nyah, nyah,' and no big deal. I can't stand that. It's such a jaded, clichéd posture to take. I get real enthusiastic about stuff. It's what I think is life-affirming.
18Actually, to be honest, a shotgun wedding might be the way to go for me. You can't stay at the party forever. At some point, you have to take stock and ask yourself, 'What am I doing here?'
19I'm not going to play a guy with MS or a guy in a wheelchair. I can play a dramatic character, certainly, but I'm not the real chameleon-type actor who, you know, changes his voice and everything.
20At about the same age as I was interested in petrified wood, I was just fascinated with this dumb idea that we only used 10 percent of our brains. I was always thinking, Man, if I could only use 20...
21A buddy movie has to have that beat where one buddy doesn't show up. They hit the same beats as romantic comedies.
22Not Shakespeare. In college I took a Shakespeare class because I was an English major, and they had a Summer program called Shakespeare at Winedale, which is out in the German Hill country in Texas , where you go out and live for two months and then you perform three plays at the end of that time. And people from Austin drive out and see it. I was supposed to be one of the two gentlemen of Verona . And I got out there and I just could not stand being out there. There were also so many lines to memorize that it was just overwhelming for me. So I ended up going home and I got an F.
23I can't think of a movie I wish I'd acted in, but there are movies I wish I'd written.
24"Ben, for example, is kind of a moody guy, and you kind of have to put on the kid gloves because you never know which Ben is going to show up on set" - on Ben Stiller.
25Yes, sometimes people get irritated, starting with my brother Luke in BR. He would get pissed at me, like, 'Why don't you just say the lines that you wrote?'" - on whether or not his improvisational skills bother fellow actors.
26Acting is more fun than writing. Writing is harder, more like having a term paper.
27We spent so much time together that I can remember us being in our teens and our dad saying we should try to find some other friends because he thought we were our own lowest common denominator when we got together. - on his brothers.
28[Talking about his relationship with Sheryl Crow and his relationships with women in general]: "Going out with someone who's doing the same thing as you, who's in the public eye, can be a problem... You want a break when you come home. You don't want someone with the same issues as you maybe reminding you of stuff you don't like in yourself. That being said, I don't think being in the spotlight had anything to do with me and Sheryl not working out. The story of our relationship is the same story I've had with most of my relationships. I was lucky enough to find a great girl and, because of my lack of... focus, the relationship went south".
29"I guess a lot of me in the sense is like Dignan, that's my sense of humor. The stuff that Dignan is doing is what I would do. When we test-screened the movie I realized that not everybody laughed where I did. I realized there's not a big audience for my type of humor. Dignan doesn't have self-awareness. Donald Trump has none either. When I read "The Art of the Deal" I laughed at that because neither of them realize how funny they are" - about his character Dignan in Bottle Rocket (1996).
30You can think of Hollywood as high school. TV actors are freshmen, comedy actors are maybe juniors, and dramatic actors - they're the cool seniors.
31"Sometimes I stop and think how strange this all is. Something that began as a little idea in Austin, that Wes and I just walked around talking about between ourselves, has turned into all this." - on how his career has turned out.
32"The walk off was the most uncomfortable scene for me to shoot, cos I literally have never danced in public or really even in private. I'm not a musical person and we had to dance like Michael Jackson and we had to do breakdancing..." - about the walk off scene in Zoolander (2001).
33"Being in a bathtub with Jackie Chan, I don't know, it has a way of bonding you I'll tell you that. I don't know if there are some weird undertones. It was like we had met in Los Angeles and we didn't have that much to say to each other but, after that bathtub scene, we were great friends. What it really was was that when we'd play off each other, it really was fun. We really did become friends". - on the bathtub scene in Shanghai Noon (2000).
34"It's funny how it usually works out that I end up dying. It sort of works out, because by the time I die, I'm usually tired of working on that particular movie, so I look forward to it." - about how a lot of his characters end up dying.
