IS he in Manila to visit his inamorata?
Hollywood actor Owen Wilson arrived in Manila on Friday without security or fanfare.
Looking relaxed and carefree, the blonde comedian was caught on camera by ABS-CBN wearing a blue polo shirt, sunglasses and a cap. He said he was “just visiting” the country.
All the same, the question still remains. Why, and more importantly who, is he visiting?
Wilson, who played bohemian rock star Hansel in Zoolander 2, is rumored to be dating Filipino socialite and fashion designer Wendy Puyat.
Puyat was one of Manila’s “It Girls” in the early 2000s, and part of Celine Lopez’s erstwhile “Gucci Gang.”
In 2002, Puyat, daughter of the “godfather of Philippine billiards” Putch Puyat, married Anthony Hotung, son of Chinese retail taipan Eric Hotung.
Unfortunately, their marriage ended in 2008 after rumors circulated on blogsphere that Puyat was having an affair with a European whom she introduced to everyone as her “yoga instructor.”
Late Sunday afternoon, however, Lifestyle society columnist Becky Garcia texted The Manila Times that Wilson and Puyat were indeed together.
“Owen is now at the [Manila] Polo Club with Wendy watching the horse show,” Garcia said after a girlfriend of hers had a selfie taken with the Hollywood star.
