Olivia Wilde doesn’t listen to rumours about her love life, preferring to “keep her head down”.
The actress split from her husband Tao Ruspoli in February after seven years of marriage and is currently rumoured to be dating Bradley Cooper. The 27-year-old hasn’t commented on the speculation though, and explained she never pays any attention to gossip.
“Well, I just try to focus on work,” she said. “I love to work. I’m in a very lucky position to be able to have roles now that I really enjoy working on, so I focus on that and keep my head down and try to do that.”
This week Olivia Wilde was honoured for her charity work, which is something she’s happy to discuss. Olivia Wilde attended organisation Fresh Air Fund’s Salute To American Heroes event in New York, where her dedication to helping people was praised. For the actress, being able to bring exposure to charities which mean a lot to her is one of the biggest perks of the job.
“I’m representing Artists For Peace and Justice, which is an organisation based in Haiti that provides education to the poorest kids of Haiti, and our [Fresh Air Fund and Artists For Peace and Justice] goals are very similar – to bring education and joy to kids who are desperately in need of those things,” she explained.
Fresh Air Fund gives children who come from cities the chance to experience life in the country.
Meanwhile, it’s been reported Bradley Cooper and Olivia Wilde are to team up on the big screen. It’s claimed they will appear alongside each other in The Words, where Bradley is set to portray a writer who steals another’s work. However, Olivia’s role is smaller and they apparently don’t have scenes together.
