Olivia Wilde: From one lover to another; from acting to directing

Olivia Wilde has turned 37 in the eye of an emotional hurricane. The New Yorker has been well known as an actress and is also emerging as one of the most promising directors of the new generation. There's a lot to celebrate in 2021.

 

Goodbye, Jason; hello, Harry

However, it's also been a difficult time for her. Olivia Wilde ended her relationship with Jason Sudeikis in November 2020 after nearly ten years together. The couple had begun dating in 2011 and have two children together: Otis Alexander (2014) and Daisy Josephine (2016).

Love in times of coronavirus

It was during the shoot of her second film as director, 'Don't Worry, Darling,' that Olivia Wilde fell in love with Harry Styles. It was in the middle of the pandemic. The new couple has caused the biggest sentimental bombshell in 2021, except for the divorce of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, perhaps.

The one in the picture is her brother Charlie

Olivia Wilde has proven that age is not a problem for her in love. Jason Sudeikis (1975) is nine years older than her, and Harry Styles (1994) is a decade younger.

A young Hollywood veteran

Before directing a movie with Harry Styles in it, Olivia Wilde accumulated almost two decades of film and television experience at the highest level.

Olivia Wilde's debut: 'Skin'

Her career began in 2003, when she played Jewel Goldman in 'Skin' at age 19. Her imposing presence earned her a role to one of the teen dramas of the moment - The O.C. - in 2004.

Alex Kelly (Wilde's character) went through 'The O.C.' like a whirlwind. In just 13 episodes, she had time for romances with Seth Cohen and Marissa Cooper, i.e. Adam Brody and Mischa Barton.

Pre "Thirteen" roles

Between 2004 and 2006, Olivia Wilde strung together a series of minor titles in Hollywood. They made her known as 'The Girl Next Door'.

Olivia Wilde played Remy Hadley in House, MD

In 2007, she entered 'House M.D.' as Doctor Remy Hadley, or "Thirteen" to her friends in the series.

Three years of diagnostics at the highest level

Wilde's on-screen chemistry with Hugh Laurie was overwhelming. Moreover, the fact that her character was openly bisexual brought her great popularity that lasted for the three seasons she remained in the series.

TV became 'too small' for Olivia Wilde

In 2010, she ceased to be a main character in the series, although she would appear as a recurring character in the last two seasons. It was clear to Olivia Wilde, though, that she wanted to make the leap to film.

Quorra in movie and game

She played in 'Year One' (2009), 'The Next Three Days' (2010) and in the ambitious movie 'Tron: Legacy' (2010) where she gave life to Quorra. Olivia Wilde was so involved in the project that she even voiced Quorra herself in the film's videogame adaptation.

Established in action films

Jon Favreau turned her into Ella Swenson in 'Cowboys & Aliens' (2011), where she shared the screen with Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford.

 

In Time (2011) with Justin Timberlake

That same year, she would have an important role in one of the most striking films of 2011: 'In Time'. She played the mother of Justin Timberlake - three years older than her in real life. Unfortunately, the interesting premise of the film was not executed accurately and it was no success.

 

Shooting with handsome guys

Movies like 'Butter', 'The Change-Up', 'The Words' and 'Deadfall' led Olivia Wilde to share the screen with actors such as Ryan Reynolds, Jason Bateman, Bradley Cooper and Eric Bana.

Goodbye to House M.D.

Around the same time, the actress filmed the final episode of 'House M.D.', in which almost the entire cast took part. It was a memorable final episode that bid farewell to the series and to "Thirteen" in style.

Whatever happened to the actors from House M.D.?

In 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' (2013) she coincided with Steve Carell and Jim Carrey. 'Her' by Spike Jonze, 'Third Person' by Paul Haggis and 'Rush' by Ron Howard were other impressive titles. In 'Rush', Olivia Wilde gave life to the 70s' supermodel Suzy Miller.

'Vynil'

In recent years, the actress (by then in a relationship with children) played in 'Richard Jewell,' 'Life Itself,' and the series 'Vynil'. However, now that she's gotten one movie (and nearly two) under her belt as a director, people tend to see Olivia Wilde primarily as a director.

Olivia Wilde's first gigs as a director

In 2016, she had her first taste of directing with the music video for the song 'Dark Necessities' by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

'Booksmart:' a dream debut in directing

In 2019 Olivia Wilde directed 'Booksmart,' a comedy that critics described as the best of the year.

 

'Don't Worry, Darling'

For 2021, the premiere of 'Don't Worry, Darling' will be a major event. The showbiz media will be eager to see whether Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles appear together on a red carpet at last.

Olivia Wilde: feminist
