Luke Wilson
Jane, Jan/Feb 2002

Luke Wilson cozies up to Claudine Ko with a bowl of chicken soup. She downs a martini.

You have to wonder how a football-playing Texan like Luke Wilson, who's never taken an acting class, wound up in a string of Hollywood films, most recently performing with Gene Hackman and Angelica Huston in The Royal Tannenbaums, and dating ladies like Drew Barrymore and Gwyneth Paltrow. Nepotism, of course. But while Luke, 30, may owe his 1996 Bottle Rocket break to brother/filmmaker Owen, we won't hold it against him. Maybe it has something to do with his Southern drawl or the fact that he's the baby of his family (actor Andrew is the oldest). Or maybe it's just 'cause we like what we've seen so far.
