Olivia Wilde on Working for a Casting Director:

Olivia Wilde can’t speak highly enough of her time working in casting director Mali Finn’s office, calling it “invaluable.” “Many casting directors won’t hire aspiring actors,” she warns, “because you might be burning some chick’s headshot under the table so she doesn’t get the part.” But in between watching mothers remind their child actors about dead dogs (or directors teaching child actors about the mortality of parents), Wilde was learning from the crashing and burning of even the best-trained actors.

“So many actors walk into an audition without making a fucking choice, and it would sink them,” she says. “Don’t walk in there groveling and desperately wanting to be some amorphous thing you think they want. Don’t go in there with a defeatist attitude.”

Wilde also suggests biting the bullet and finding out why you didn’t get the part. “People have nervous tics they don’t know about, and I would advise asking around,” she says. “Ask the casting director, ‘Is there something I’m doing?’ I would see people unconsciously rocking back and forth. I roll my lips. I bite my lips and roll them.”

But even all of her behind-the- scenes training couldn’t save Wilde’s audition for “Rock of Ages.” “I sang ‘I Want to Know What love Is’ at the top of my goddamn lungs with Tom Cruise in a sound booth,” she says, still laughing about the moment. “And I was so completely off, so out of tune, my voice sounded like a drowning gerbil.” She pauses, then laughs again. “But I made a fucking choice.”

Olivia Wilde is InStyle‘s August cover girl! At 29, her life is beginning a whole new chapter. She moved across the country from Los Angeles to settle in New York. She is recently engaged to funnyman Jason Sudeikis. (“I love this engagement thing,” she says. “It’s like its own period in my life, and I really want to inhabit it.”) And she has a spate of hotly anticipated movies on deck, including Rush, a film directed by Ron Howard out this fall, and she just wrapped filming Third Person with Liam Neeson. Leave it to other actresses to play the diva or suck the air out of the room. She prefers to wave the whole “star” thought away with a laugh. That’s just one reason we fell in love with our August cover girl.


“I’m pretty comfortable in my own skin,” she says. “I’m not the neurotic type. I don’t think there are things lurking everywhere to destroy me. I live pretty much in the present.”


“I like having a real partner. It’s the model I grew up with. It’s part of why I was able to take so many chances in my life, because I felt like someone was watching my back. I could never imagine life without someone I respect, someone who offers me infinite possibilities,” she says. And she’s willing to take on the challenges that come with having two performers in a couple. “There are spikes and dips and plateaus in this business. I’ve seen couples fall apart through it, and it is heartbreaking. You wonder what will happen—will he love me if I’m not as successful? Will jealousy kill us? I know there will be times when Jason is working more than I am, but I’m actually excited by that. I’m excited by what he will become, what depth he has.”


“I used to dress like [bluesman] John Lee Hooker, with wide-collared polyester shirts and corduroy suits. Boys were my role models back then.” Now, she’s a red carpet fixture. “I have the torso of a tall woman and the lower body of a short woman. Who knows what evolutionary purpose I’ve been made for?” she jokes. “People always told me I had nice eyes, so I accentuated that.”
