Just like Gretchen in “Mean Girls” kept trying to make “fetch” happen, the world just keeps insisting that Olivia Wilde happen. And why not? She’s gorgeous, catlike and the daughter of leftist politco thinker Alexander Cockburn, so sure. Emma Stone, on the other hand, is a sparkly, keen-eyed redhead with great comic timing who yes, you’d want to be your best friend. Together, the two will serve as global brand ambassadors for cosmetics giant Revlon this next year. No, this doesn’t mean they’ll be attending the interplanetary makeup conference on disgraced former planet Pluto (but don’t you wish there was one?)–it just means you’ll be seeing a whole lot more of these two, so get ready. Yay pretty ladies! Keep reading »
“Dating is new to me … I see the whole thing like someone who’s been in a coma and I’ve come out like, ‘Wait, people text message? They text love? How do you text about love??’”
—Oliva Wilde talks to Nylon about swimming the dating shark pool again after her divorce. Oh man, I feel for her. She has so many more confusing moments to confront. It makes me momentarily grateful to be a dating veteran. I may be single, but at least I (kind of) know how the dating machine operates. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
“It was a mind trip for me. Olivia is two or three years younger than me, so to have her playing my mother was definitely a head trip. I’d just like to point out that [my song] ‘Mother Lover’ is about sexing up someone else’s mother.”
—Justin Timberlake talks at Comic-Con about his new action flick, “In Time,” in which he stars alongside Amanda Seyfried and Olivia Wilde. In the movie, scientists have figured out how to stop the aging process so that people remain forever 25—but for a high price. Which means that in the movie, characters who are far older in numerical age look the same as everyone else. Hence, how Olivia can play Justin’s mom.
See what Justin had to say about Amanda Seyfried after the jump. Keep reading »
“The trauma of the whole thing has been humbling, and for the first time, I’m a little bit wobbly … It makes you a more empathetic person, and I think it’s made me a better actress. Weakness is something we don’t like to admit we have. We hold it against people, until we experience it, and then we feel more compassion for it … ["House" creator David Shore] said ‘You should get divorced every year; your acting’s never been better!’”
—Olivia Wilde talks at length about her divorce in the new issue of Marie Claire and says that while she and ex Tao Ruspoli are on great terms, their breakup has been rough on her. But it she sounds like she has good perspective on things and has been able to make lemonade out of these lemons. And that’s pretty cool. [Marie Claire] Keep reading »
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.”

Over the weekend, Olivia Wilde tweeted this photo of herself cuddling with her dog, alongside the caption, “Ok I know I’m not supposed to tweet sexy photos (damn you Wiener (sic)!) but here is me and my (only!) boyfriend in bed.” Way to kill two birds with one stone, Olivia: (1) deflecting rumors that you’re dating Bradley Cooper and Justin Timberlake and (2) making us all say a collective, “awwwww.” [People] Keep reading »
Back in February, Olivia WIlde split from her hubby, Italian prince Tao Ruspoli. We suggested some new folks for her to date next, but apparently, she doesn’t need our help. In late February, she was seen out with Ryan Gosling—interestingly, the first person we wanted to set her up with. [For the record, I am not part of this royal "we." -- Editor] But it looks like she might have moved on—over the weekend she was seen out with also newly single Justin Timberlake.
So, uh, which rumored date was better? Keep reading »
As of yesterday, two lovely famous ladies are once again on the market. First, Olivia Wilde separated from her husband, Tao Ruspoli, the son of an Italian prince. Honestly, we didn’t even realize she was married, but apparently the two met when she as 18. He proposed at Burning Man and they got married on a bus. “We were hippies,” she once told Playboy. “We lived on that bus for months.” Sadly, the party is now over. [LA Times]
And then there’s Ashlee Simpson, who filed for divorce from her husband of two and a half years, Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy.
After the jump, we pick who these two should date next. Keep reading »
Loads of great brows were on display last night at the Fox All-Star Party—check out Olivia Wilde and Aisha Tyler, above, rocking pretty, natural (but definitely filled-in) eyebrows. I was never a brow filler-in-er, but as I recently learned, a polished, full, neat set of eyebrows really does transform your entire face. (A rule of thumb with brow shape: Thin, highly arched brows can make you look older, and fuller, darker, more natural-looking brows are easier to pull off and usually much more flattering.) When brows are filled-in and full, your makeup looks better and if you aren’t wearing any, your face just looks more pulled together. And even women with the thickest brows benefit greatly from a little filling in. A few tricks for getting it right… Keep reading »
