Olivia Wilde may be super feminine (not to mention really gorgeous!) now, but she insists this wasn’t always the case and in fact, she actually went through a pretty awkward punk phase full of shaved hair and heavy makeup that makes her cringe to look back on.
“I don’t think there’s one picture from growing up where I don’t think, ‘Ugh, awful!’ If I ever have a daughter who starts experimenting with heavy makeup or shaving her hair like I did, I would encourage it and say, ‘Do it all now, you’ll learn yourself well.’”
“I did that awful gutterpunk undershave look when I was 12. Not an easy grow back process. It looked like I got run over by a tractor. But my mom had a good response to that stuff; I didn’t even need to be punished, I learned that one on my own.”
Ouch, sounds rough! However, haven’t we all been there? I don’t think anyone looks back on childhood photos and thinks they had it really together and looked super cool. That’s the fun part of growing up, right? For what it’s worth, she looks amazing now!
Pregnant and more adorable than ever, Olivia Wilde was spotted heading to Pilates in West Hollywood earlier today. She looks amazing. I hated pictures of me when I was pregnant, but she looks just amazing. Make-up free and all. At the Golden Globes, Wilde announced that her due date is May 4th.
Wilde is expecting her first child with fiancé, Jason Sudeikis. The two attended the Clippers game on Wednesday night in Los Angeles. They cheered their team to a slim victory against the Houston Rockets in court side seats.
Wilde, 29, and Sudeikis, 38, started dating in late 2011 and got engaged in January of last year. This will be a second marriage for Wilde, who was previously married to Tao Ruspoli, an Italian filmmaker for eight years. Sudeikis dated actress January Jones, who announced her pregnancy just a few months after they separated, however Jones has never revealed the identity of her son’s father to the public.
Olivia Wilde stopped by the Ed Sullivan Theatre last night in NYC for an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman.
The 28-year-old actress arrived with her boyfriend, Jason Sudeikis. (Sidenote: I’m so glad she got rid of that blonde hair! She looks so much better as a brunette!)
She looks adorable in her black suit and a tiger t-shirt. Before arriving at the theater, she tweeted ““@Late_Show: TONIGHT: Dave welcomes @DenisLeary, @OliviaWilde, and musical guest @ThePiercesMusic.” So I SHOULDN’T drop this acid then?”
In the interview with David, Olivia opened up about her “dopey” boyfriend, Jason, and recounted their vacation to Jamaica included a story about needed to be rescued from the ocean after a swarm of jellyfish approached them.
Olivia was on Letterman to promote her new movie, “People Like Us”. The movie is about a man who becomes tasked with delivering $150,000 of his deceased father’s fortune to a sister he didn’t know he had. It looks amazing, if you ask me. It comes out on June 29th.
Olivia Wilde is one of Revlon’s new brand ambassadors. She got all dolled up for a new Revlon commercial in NYC yesterday afternoon.
While she’s not shooting commercials for Revlon, the actress recently produced a documentary titled “Baseball in the Time of Chloera”, which is a film about the cholera epidemic in Haiti.
Asked to tell what drew Haiti to her periphery in a new interview with Huffington Post, the 28-year-old actress explained, “My mom is a journalist and she did a piece for CBS news in 1987. I went with her after that, and fell in love with Haiti. And then Bryn and I met the same people in LA who gave us an opportunity to go to Haiti and to be useful. Then I started going every few months. It’s definitely one of my favorite places on earth. There is so much beauty, in addition to its troubles. Hopefully the film will allow people to see the beautiful side of Haiti, and the people. And maybe go there themselves and see why it’s a country worth saving, acknowledging, and caring about instead of allowing it to be swallowed up into the pit of poverty. It’s been like that for too long.”
Olivia added, “And the amazing thing is that it’s all doable. The UN does have this incredible budget, if they could allocate a huge chunk of that to eradicating cholera, they could also eradicate several other waterborne diseases. Through sanitation water projects, they could save thousands of innocent lives. And then Haiti could start getting back on its feet. There are so many projects that David and Bryn are involved with that are all about sustainable health. This is not just a Band-Aid. This is about allowing this country to thrive in the way it really can and should. The people there are incredible. I love it there. I’m excited to go next week, and we’ll be going there for the rest of our lives.”
I’m not sure what I think about Olivia as a blonde. I think she’s much prettier as a brunette.
