“Sure, it’ll be tougher to convince an audience I’m the ‘feisty young coed,’ cramming for my biochem final and wondering if Zac Efron’s character likes my new crushed-velvet headband, but I was never crazy about those roles anyway. People assume actresses are afraid to get older; the truth is the roles get a whole lot more compelling once you’re too old to play dumb. So I’m welcoming this development with open arms.”

Olivia Wilde on why she’s embracing her impending 30-year-old self in Hollywood. The “Drinking Buddies” star goes on to list the do’s and don’ts for other women hitting their big three-oh, such as “DO enjoy your sexual prime” and “DON’T cut your face.” Although, after googling Ms. Wilde’s birthday, she actually turns 30 in March of 2014 … so like, in seven months. A little premature if you ask me, but nonetheless, you should read the rest of the 29-year-old’s advice! [Glamour]
