Through his publicist, Wilson on Monday requested privacy so he can recuperate. And his parents and brothers were with him at the hospital, so it appears he’s getting the support he needs from family.
Wilson will always earn a fond spot in many Route 66ers’ hearts because he played Lightning McQueen in last summer’s Disney-Pixar animated movie, “Cars.” The film shined a welcome spotlight on the Mother Road, and Wilson played a key role.
I figured that Route 66 aficionados and business owners would like to send Wilson a get-well card, or a friendly message on a Route 66 postcard. I e-mailed Matt Walker, the assistant to his publicist, asking him whether there was a snail-mail address to send such messages.
He replied that he’ll collect the cards and messages for Wilson if they’re mailed here:
8409 Santa Monica Blvd.
West Hollywood, CA 90069
So there it is. If you want to spread a little of the magic of the Mother Road, you know what to do.
