posted by Jennifer • October 29th, 2011 • Comments Off on Olivia Wilde is the new Lara Croft in Tomb Raider redo?

EDIT: Olivia Wilde has just tweeted that this is false!

Hey internet, I’m not the new Lara Croft. But I’ve seen about 23 drag queen impersonators tonight in new york so all is well!

“Tron Legacy” actress Olivia Wilde is stepping into the padded-bra previously adorned by Angelina Jolie in the “Tomb Raider” reboot, says french site Cinepop.

Wilde reportedly confirmed the casting in an interview with the site, adding that Mark Fergus (“First Snow”, writer of “Cowboys & Aliens”, which Wilde was in) is directing the flick. Fergus co-wrote the script with Hawk Ostby (“Iron Man”).

Wilde, who career has gone from strength-to-strength since playing the lesbian bartender in Calisoap “The OC”, says she’s a fan of the character – who originates from the pixels on a video-game monitor – and is looking forward to raiding tombs on the big screen.

Guessing this one might be officially announced at AFM…

Because we know you can’t get enough of shortlist stories, we’ve got yet another line-up of actresses vying for a role. Today the film in question is the magician comedy Burt Wonderstone starring Steve Carell and Jim Carrey. Deadline reports that Olivia Wilde, Michelle Monaghan, Judy Greer, Sarah Silverman, and Jessica Biel are all on the short list for the female lead in the Las Vegas-centered comedy. The film tells the story of a Vegas magician (Carell) who is upstaged by a younger, more hip magician (Carrey) after breaking up with his partner. Nevermind that Carell and Carrey are the same age.

While all the actresses mentioned are find leading ladies in their own right, no one comes close to the comedic talents of Greer in my mind. She’s been shining in supporting roles left and right for years (just thinking about her stint on Arrested Development makes me crack a smile), and it’d be great to see her go toe-to-toe with Carell and Carrey. Jason Reitman was recently commissioned to do “several weeks worth” of work on the script, previously written by Horrible Bosses scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.

“Free Hugs”, the first film directed by Olivia Wilde is now available to watch online! Check it out at Glamour Reel Moments!

FREE HUGS captures the “rock bottom” moment of post-breakup wallowing, when friends lose their patience, and the pitiless world moves on without you. We follow the hilariously bitter Billie as she attempts to find catharsis through comfort food (and wine), sawing her belongings in half and attacking a particularly meaningful local monument. Ultimately Billie must slam into the harsh reality of heartbreak before she can understand that sometimes the purest form of love is a free hug from a stranger.

Starring: Jaclyn Jonet, Justin Long, Sarah Burns, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Aziz Ansari, Bryn Mooser
Inspired by Glamour Reader Suzanne P. Reese

Olivia Wilde plays an “old soul” in new sci-fi movie In Time, the film’s director has revealed.

The actress plays Justin Timberlake’s mother in the thriller, which sees people stop ageing at the age of 25.

“It was challenging, because some characters, like Olivia Wilde, had to be very old souls, very mature,” Andrew Niccol explained.

And although she was playing the role of a woman a generation older than him, Wilde is actually 27, while Timberlake is 30.

“Olivia had to play the mother of Justin Timberlake, who’s actually a couple of years older than she is,” Niccol laughed. “So it was challenging.”

The film was shot in Los Angeles, which the director, who is also set to helm the adaptation of Stephanie Meyer’s The Host, described as apt.

He said: “Working in LA was very interesting because the movie is a lot about staying young forever, and this is the capital of staying young forever.”

Olivia Wilde - House

Olivia Wilde may have just made her exit from House on Monday’s episode, but if you were among the fans hoping for Thirteen to make a brief return in the future to close out her character’s relatively open-ended departure, you might be out of luck.

At the In Time premiere held last night at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, Calif., Wilde told EW that she didn’t foresee a return to the show — even if rumors that it could be the show’s last season prove to be true. “I think the way we left it, if she came back, it would probably seem forced,” Wilde said. “So I don’t think she should come back. I liked her exit story a lot, so I am happy with it.”

Back in June, executive producer David Shore told EW that Wilde would “be back for at least some of the season” but ultimately, Wilde’s sole appearance this season was also her last. In her final episode, Thirteen was fired by House so that she could make a guilt-free move to Greece with her girlfriend. Wilde said her time on the show, which has seen her character struggle with Huntington’s Disease and spend some time in jail, was satisfying without having to revisit it. “I wouldn’t be so bold as to ask for anything more from House,” she told EW. “I had such an amazing run on the show. They’ve done such cool things with my character. She’s been so fascinating, dynamic and cool and unpredictable.”

Some new information about Olivia Wilde’s first and last (?) episode of the season have been revealed at Ask Ausiello!

Question: Does Thirteen really leave House? If so, when? —Tamar
Ausiello: Next Monday’s episode is Olivia Wilde’s swan song. Of course, if this turns out to be House‘s last season, I have to imagine she’ll put in another appearance in or around the series finale.

The actress has enjoyed a decent year in the movies with Cowboys & Aliens and The Change-Up this past summer and In Time still coming later this month, and now Olivia Wilde has lined up a new project. While a whole slew of actresses apparently wanted the role, Deadline says it’s Wilde who has been set to play 70’s supermodel Suzy Miller in Ron Howard’s Rush, the chronicle of the rivalry between the late playboy British Formula One driver James Hunt and his nemesis, Austrian champion Niki Lauda. There might even be a small role that would reunite Howard with his A Beautiful Mind star Russell Crowe as well. More below!

Miller became quite fond of Hunt who is described as a handsome, womanizing racer, but the story will also show how the model soon came to fall in love with Richard Burton, and that’s the role that Howard is looking to have Crowe take on (though it would be a very small one). Written by The Queen and Frost/Nixon scribe Peter Morgan, the film follows three-time Formula One champion Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) and his near-fatal 1976 racing season where he was nearly burned to death after his Ferrari swerved off the track in only the second lap of the German Grand Prix, crashed, and burst into flames. He emerged six weeks later to pursue his rivalry with fellow driver James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth). Sounds like a great story for the big screen, especially with Howard in the director’s chair.

Actress Olivia Wilde has confirmed that she is dating someone – but won’t reveal who.

The 27-year-old star has recently been romantically linked to several men, including actors Justin Timberlake and Bradley Cooper, since she split from her husband Tao Ruspoli in February after nearly eight years of marriage.

When asked if she is currently dating, Wilde told British OK! magazine: ‘Yeah. I like it if the guy possesses creativity and doesn’t take me to a boring restaurant or a boring whatever but comes up with an interesting location. I like to be surprised, for sure.’

Olivia also discussed the break down of her marriage, revealing that she has learnt a lot about herself since she split from Tao.

The Cowboys & Aliens star added: ‘Well, it’s [divorce] traumatic and humbling, and for the first time I’m a bit rickety. But I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to learn how to be alone and not be defined by another person. ‘But still, you don’t feel so good – more like you’ve failed. I’m afraid that people think I didn’t try enough or something, or I don’t live up to any sort of ideal.’
