Owen Wilson - Owen Wilson's Late Night Ping-pong Match

Subscribe to Owen Wilson alerts

Owen Wilson challenged the owner of a bar to a game of late night ping-pong.

The 'Wedding Crashers' actor is a big fan of Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room & Ping Pong Emporium bar in Atlanta and was enjoying a night out there when he decided he wanted to take part in a game of table Tennis.

So, Owen - who had arrived at around midnight - had an employee at the venue ring up owner Grant Henry to play against him.

An insider told People.com: ''Grant arrived at the bar and played a quick game with Owen, beating him 21-18. Owen requested a rematch, and Grant said only if the winner gets the other person's trucker hat.''

In the end, Owen won the next match and dutifully swapped hats with Grant.

The source added: ''Owen was friendly and jovial, posing for photos with other people at the bar.''

Owen - who has a 19-month-old son, Ford, with his ex-partner Jade Duell - was perhaps relaxing before his busy filming schedule starts as he is set to star in the 'Zoolander' sequel and 'The Internship'.
