Is Olivia Wilde Really A Wild Flirt?

Olivia Wilde is a major flirt. Or at least that’s what the tabloids want us to believe. In the past six months, she has been linked to, oh, pretty much all of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors from Jake Gyllenhaal to Justin Timberlake to Ryan Gosling to Bradley Cooper. Ever since her split from Italian prince Tao Ruspoli in February, every time she so much as looks at a famous guy, the tabloids are ablaze with rumors of her “next fling.” And I just have to call BS. I mean, the woman is insanely gorgeous, newly single, and for sure has an innate Wildeness that brings all the boys to the yard. But in so many of these cases, it seems more like Olivia is just, you know, having a conversation with a friend rather than shamelessly flirting. Check out some headlines after the jump and decide if Olivia really deserves that Scarlet “F.”
