You may not have known this, but it turns out that Owen Wilson likes to say "Wow" a lot. It's his go-to word to express excitement (either real or fake) in any situation, and he gets an opportunity to use it quite a lot. Don't believe me? Well, you should probably check out the supercut below:



That first shot in the timeline is from Wes Anderson's Bottle Rocket - Owen Wilson's first feature film - and that stray comment about his brothers stick figure flip book launched a career of saying "Wow" in a whole lot of movies under a whole lot of different circumstances. And this video doesn't even include his work as a voice actor! By the end of the video, Wilson says "Wow" over 50 times, which means that he actually says it more than once per film.

Sadly, there doesn't appear to be a full list of all of the titles featured here in order, but most of the movies are recognizable, and quite a few titles are represented by multiple clips. In fact, there are points where it feels like the video is 90 percent comprised of scenes from Woody Allen's Midnight In Paris. That being said, the number of "Wows" do make sense when you consider that most of that film is just Owen Wilson being surprised while meeting famous dead people.

To Wilson's credit, there is quote a lot of variety in his delivery of his "Wows" - and each one definitely sells exactly how he is really feeling. Sometimes he throws in a little bit of a head wiggle, other times he's throwing his arms up in the air in excitement. Of all the different kind of "Wows" that Owen Wilson can clearly produce, however, my favorite is naturally the "Cat Wow" (though I have no idea what film it's actually from).

Cat Wow Owen Wilson

It may not be long before this video from YouTube user Owenergy Studios is made obsolete, as Owen Wilson has a few projects coming to theaters in the next year - and therefore plenty more opportunities to way "Wow." Next up for the actor will be the Jared Hess-directed heist comedy Masterminds, which teams him with Kristen Wiig, Zach Galifianakis, and Jason Sudeikis, and then in September he will be getting into action hero mode starring alongside Pierce Brosnan in John Erick Dowdle's No Escape. He's currently reprising his role as Hansel in Ben Stiller's Zoolander 2, and if the original is any indication, it should have plenty of Wilson's favorite word.
