What Happened to Owen Wilson’s Nose? Here’s How It Looked Before
Owen Wilson has an unusual-looking nose. Upon close inspection, one can spot his uneven nasal line.
His many curious fans have always questioned whether he was born such or something happened to his nose.
However, his hairstyle and bent nose have become a part of Wilson's trademark look with time.
The actor seen in the role of Agent Mobius alongside Tom Hiddlestone in Marvel Studio's Loki did not have a different-shaped nose while growing up.
What Happened to Owen Wilson's Nose?
Actor Wilson is Texan-born, and it is where he did his schooling.
Wilson attended St. Mark's High School and was widely regarded as a trouble-maker during his school years.
In 2001 the Los Angeles Times published a report on Wilson and his career.
The news report included notes from the actor and the people associated with him.
In the report, he was quoted talking about his nose, saying, "You know, probably my nose wouldn't have been that great even if it hadn't been broken."
The history of his nose apparently dates back to his high school days.
Wilson was expelled from his school as a tenth grader, the news article mentioned.
He stole his teacher's textbook and also copied answers during an examination.
Per the article, Wilson twice broke his nose during his school days. He broke it the first time during a school fight.
And more damage was done to his nose after colliding with a friend on a football field.
Timeline of Owen Wilson's Nose
After being rusticated from St. Mark, Wilson was admitted to Thomas Jefferson High School.
It is from his second school the actor graduated. Sometime later, he joined the New Mexico Military Institute.
It is claimed that his now-trademark nose was already in place at this point in Wilson's life.
In 2015, a Twitter fan account posted an image with a series of Wilson's old photographs compiled into one.
The first couple of images are understood to be from his school days, while the second set of photographs can be seemingly traced back to his late teen years.
The striking difference in his nasal structure can be observed in the second set of pictures. In one of the photos, his nasal lining seems unharmed.
The photo in question is reportedly understood to be picked from his final years at high school.
While, in the second photograph, Wilson's outfit does look similar to that of a formal military dress where he can be seen with a bent nose.
