Luke Wilson Early Life
The very handsome actor and brother of Owen Wilson, Luke Wilson was born on September 21, 1971, in Dallas, Texas, United States of America. At the moment, Luke is 47 years old, and good gracious will you look at this man? Does he look like 47 years old to you? If you ask us, we’ll probably say that Luke is lying about his age.
As a matter of fact, no one believes that Luke is in his late 40s at the moment. He dresses up carries himself and looks like someone in their early or the mid-30s. There are people who’d sell their soul to the devil to never grow old or at least, not looking old. Did Luke sell his soul too? We’ll never know for sure.
Luke was born to father Robert Andrew Wilson and mother Laura Wilson (née Cunningham). To talk more about his parents, his father Robert worked as an advertising executive at a company named KERA while his mother worked as a photographer. Born to a family with already influence on the entertainment industry, Luke grew up with a lot of childhood memory pictures.
Luke is also one of the three Wilson brothers as his parents gave birth to three sons and he is also the youngest among his three brothers. The oldest of them all is Andrew Wilson, who is an American actor and director. The second Wilson brother is the famous Owen Wilson who predominantly recognizes himself as an actor and then a screenwriter as well.
Luke’s family previously lived in Massachusetts, and the family shares an Irish Catholic background.
Luke Wilson Education
Both of Luke’s parents wanted their children to get a good education and not fool around aimlessly. As the couple firstborn, Andrew Wilson started his education. First, he also acted as an example for his younger brother at school. With this, both Owen and Luke had someone to look up to and get inspired from.
All three brothers went to the same school called St. Mark’s School of Texas located in Texas itself, and all three established themselves as very obedient and disciplined kids. Although all three of Wilson brothers had their different personalities as young kids, none of them gave major trouble at school.
Owen once revealed that on the first year of Luke joining the school, he became the class president after everyone voted him. That just shows how much a sincere student Luke, was during his school time. After studying and focusing on school very hard, Luke graduated from high school with very good marks.
Getting good marks in high school allowed Luke to go to any university he fancied. However, if Luke pursued his higher education program or not remains a mystery. He does not talk about going to university and completing his bachelor’s degree. But for all we know, Luke did go to university and get his degree; he just doesn’t talk about it.

Do you know what happens when a man is handsome, successful, and well, rich? Simply put, he is attractive to ladies. If you are a woman and reading this, you probably have a massive crush on Owen already. But, do you have any chances with this gorgeous man?
It looks like you do. At the moment, Luke is not in a relationship, and surprisingly, Luke has never married as well. Surprising because not all handsome and successful men are available like this. While some say Luke is a gay man and hiding in the closet, we say otherwise.
His previous relationship stands as witnesses that Luke is not a gay man. Don’t believe us? Reportedly, Luke previously dated Drew Barrymore, his co-actor at one time. Luke and Drew gave media houses all the love details they needed. Apart from the relationship with Drew Barrymore, Luke also reportedly had other affairs.
Till now, Luke reportedly dated Joy Bryant, Gwyneth Paltrow, Alison Eastwood, Audra Lynn, and Jennifer Walcott. As of now, Luke reportedly stays single. However, we hardly doubt his relationship status at the moment. There is a very high possibility that Luke is dating someone secretly at the moment.
Or there is also a very high possibility that he is searching for that one woman he can settle down with.

The youngest Wilson brother started his career with the help of his older brother Owen Wilson and his friend Wes Anderson. Luke appeared as the main character in a short movie called Bottle Rocket in 1994, a movie that Owen co-wrote along with Wes Anderson, who directed the movie.
