Why We Love Olivia Wilde
Wilde by name, wild by nature: pixie-faced sex-landmine Olivia Wilde has a definite dark ‘n’ deadly streak to her that you don’t get with many Hollywood actresses these days. While many doe-eyed young starlets look like they’d struggle to drop an F-bomb or shoo a kitten away if their life depended on it, Olivia seems like the kinda gal who’d pull the pin out of a grenade with her teeth, casually toss it over her shoulder, then slam down three double-shots of tequila purely for the lolz.
That air of twinkle-eyed bad-assery has served her well, earning her rugged-girl roles in The OC, In Time, Rush and Tron: Legacy (and the forthcoming Tron 3). Just don’t expect her to be popping up in any rom-coms, being adorably cute and klutzy opposite a smitten Gerard Butler, because she ain’t cut out for that kinda thing. Thank Christ.
