If laughter is the best medicine, Owen Wilson
is well on his way to recovery.
The actor showed his comic side again, joining brothers Luke and Andrew along with Jessica Simpson
, Willie Nelson, Woody Harrelson and Dan Rather for a lawn mower-riding competition in Texas.
The Bad Boy Lawn Mower Race, held at Nelson's homestead near Austin last week, was part of a music-video shoot for his new song, "You Don't Think I'm Funny Anymore," reports the Austin American-Statesman
Photos from the shoot, featuring Harrelson and Owen Wilson in cowboy hats and action shots from the race, were posted Friday on a Nelson fan blog
. The men rode orange lawn mowers, while Simpson was given a flashy pink one.
It's the latest high-profile appearance by Wilson, 38, who’s recovering from what police called a suicide attempt
last August. Earlier in the month, he briefly showed up at the Los Angeles premiere of his movie
, The Darjeeling Limited
, where his costar Jason Schwartzman said, "Owen is doing very well."
