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.
Chris Hemsworth was spotted today on the set of his new movie, Rush. Rush is the story of racing legend and bad boy James Hunt and his racing rival Niki Lauda and the story of Lauda’s life changing crash in 1976. Hunt was notorious for his unconventional behavior on and off the race track and was the epitome of unruly, playboy drivers and was celebrated for his English eccentricity. Daniel Bruhl plays German race driver Niki Lauda who was immortalized when his car crashed in 1976.
Wearing a red jumpsuit, the 28-year-old was filming at a racetrack in London.
The film, which is directed by Ron Howard, also stars Olivia Wilde.
Olivia Wilde has now moved on with new guy Jason Sudeikis, but the ‘Tron’ actress opened up about her divorce to ‘Town & Country‘ magazine. Olivia was 18 when she married Tao Ruspoli (on a bus) – her divorce was finalized just a few months ago. She shared:
“When you go through a breakup, you lose faith for a while. It makes you feel like such a failure, but I think this whole traumatic year has made me a better actor. And the good thing about getting divorced young – if there is a good thing – is that it makes you realize there’s no schedule in life. It blasts you wide open and frees you to be honest with yourself.”
On her ex-husband:
“Tao was, and is, totally involved with his work, and for me there’s nothing sexier than a man who is busy and obsessed with what he’s doing. I guess I saw that in my parents’ marriage. They had real respect for their work and for each other.”
On owing everything to former co-star Hugh Laurie:
“I spent four years on House and learned so much from Hugh. I owe my entire film career to him. I wouldn’t be anywhere near where I am now without Hugh and the series. It was the first time I’d been allowed to play somebody not defined by my looks.”
