Salman Rushdie Is Practically a Mentor to Olivia Wilde

olivia wilde salman rushdie One of the many perks of authoring The Satanic Verses and The Moor’s Last Sigh is the requisite personal friendship with Olivia Wilde, best known for her work in Tron: Legacy 3D and The O.C., on which she played a lesbian during a brief but memorable story arc in late 2005. The author and the actress discussed foreign policy at Da Silvano last week, because “he’s one of her parents’ best friends,” a rep said.

Recently single “Tron: Legacy” beauty Olivia Wilde was spotted dining with Salman Rushdie at a table for two at Da Silvano the other night. But while some onlookers thought it was a date, don’t let your imagination run wild. “He’s one of her parents’ best friends,” said a rep for Wilde, whose love life has been speculated about wildly since she filed for divorce in February from Tao Ruspoli. And man-about-town Rushdie has been linked to a laundry list of long-legged lovelies.
