Owen Wilson is getting candid about his dad's battle with Alzheimer's disease.
During a new interview with Dallas Morning News, the 46-year-old actor confessed his father's diagnosis with the illness has been "rough" on his family.

"It’s been a rough thing. It's one of those things where if somebody had said 10 years ago, when my dad and I were joking around, having a putting match, that this is the position your dad's going to be in, where he basically needs 24-hour care, you'd think, 'Gosh, I won't be able to handle that. That's just not possible,'" he told the news outlet of his 74-year-old dad, Bob Wilson.

"You just have to do your best to deal with it. You've got no choice but to accept it. And then, you sort of still look for the things to be grateful for," Owen continued.

Despite Bob's diagnosis, Owen added his father — who previously worked as an advertising executive and operator of a public television station — is still the person he and his brothers Luke Wilson, 43, and Andrew Wilson, 51, turn to for advice.
"For me and my brothers, there just wasn't a bigger influence on us," he said.
