Dallas-born actor Owen Wilson says that while his father having Alzheimer’s disease is “a rough thing,” he also knows that there are things to be grateful for, including that his father is being cared for at home and has people around who love him.

“You just have to do your best to deal with it. You’ve got no choice but to accept it,” Wilson told the Dallas Morning News in his first public comment about his 74-year-old father’s illness.

His father, Robert A. “Bob” Wilson, took charge of Dallas’ public television affiliate, KERA, in 1967. He hired Jim Lehrer for a local show, which led to The News Hour With Jim Lehrer.

“For me and my brothers [Luke and Andrew], there just wasn’t a bigger influence on us,” Owen Wilson said.
