Behind the scenes with Rush actress Olivia Wilde

Rush tells the high-speed story of real-life race car drivers James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl), detailing their competitive relationship in the high-stakes world of Formula One racing during the 1970s. Olivia Wilde plays Suzy Miller, a Playboy model who posed for the centerfold in September 1972.

Suzy married James Hunt, a notorious womanizer, and the film explores their volatile relationship. Wilde says, “Suzy and James are an example of the kind of reckless, romantic, optimistic behavior of the time and they had a tumultuous marriage. But she was very much in love with him, and I think he with her, but she ended up leaving him for Richard Burton.” Actor Richard Burton is famous for marrying Elizabeth Taylor not once, but twice. They were also divorced twice.

After meeting at a party in Spain, Suzy Miller and James Hunt got married in 1974, but were divorced by 1976. Suzy received a $1 million divorce settlement.

About falling in love with a dare-devil, Wilde adds, “James is not the safe bet your mother wants you to marry, but he was endearing and, I think, irresistible.” Who doesn’t love a bad boy?

Rush opens in theaters September 27th.

New Clip From “Rush”

Although he’s mainly associated with Thor, Chris Hemsworth has proven himself to be a very charismatic actor, even if the movie he’s in isn’t very good (see RED DAWN for example). So even though he can be seen as Thor again in November’s THOR: THE DARK WORLD, I’d say I’m more excited to see him in Ron Howard’s RUSH. Today we get a new clip from the film featuring him talking things over with Olivia Wilde, who’s not quite pulling off that British accent. Check it out below and see for yourself. RUSH stars Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Brühl, Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Stephen Mangan, Christian McKay, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Jamie de Courcey, Pierfrancesco Favino and Natalie Dormer. The Ron Howard directed film races into theaters on September 27th.

Getting Wasted With Olivia Wilde and Jake Johnson

As the summer movie season winds to a close and we’ve become exhausted by explosions and superheroes and giant portals in the sky, the perfect remedy are some of the fantastic indie movies that are hitting theaters. One of those films is Joe Swanberg’s ‘Drinking Buddies,’ a romantic comedy for people who like to drink a lot of beer and generally hate romantic comedies. We caught up with stars Olivia Wilde and Jake Johnson to talk about getting drunk, skinny dipping and having no idea what is going to happen next.
