With the news out of Hollywood concerning the shocking apparent suicide attempt by A-list actor and partyboy Owen Wilson, the crass touting of "Exclusive!" news about Wilson and promotion of subject experts (Radar‘s editors are available for comment!) — and the eschewing of his family’s pleas for privacy — were to be expected. (Us Weekly doesn’t exist in a sphere, after all.) What was unexpected, though, was Elle magazine’s rather classy decision to kill a Q+A with Wilson it had conducted weeks before the actor’s alleged binge-y overdose.

WWD reports
that the piece slated for its December Hollywood issue was killed by editor Roberta Myers: "Obviously the circumstances have changed significantly," she said.
