“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]

“I thought, ‘He won’t be interested in me; I’m not a contender. He was so cool, so funny’ — I was such a fan of his and had always fancied his speed and his intelligence. He’s a brilliant actor with a brain like lightning. … I felt like fresh meat at the market … I thought, I’m not beautiful enough or his type. I couldn’t wait to sit down and hear him talk. On our first date, in New York City, we closed the restaurant down at 2 a.m.! He didn’t kiss me, and I was madly in love. I was overwhelmed.”
––Last week we learned never to go on a date with Adam Levine because he will take you to McDonald’s in a tuxedo. Seriously, that’s what he said is his favorite first date idea. But Olivia Wilde restored my faith in humanity. On her first date with fiancé Jason Sudeikis, they shut the restaurant down. And there was no kissing. Sexual tension! It sounds refreshingly normal.

Olivia Wilde is a bonafide stunner, so it typically doesn’t matter what she wears. When I first spied her in this L’Wren Scott look at the premiere of her new movie “Deadfaull,” I loved it.

But what do you think? Is it a yay or a nay in your book?
