The British actor has won plaudits after he spoke out against racism in the wake of the death of George Floyd.
Olivia Wilde posted a series of Twitter messages defending her role in Clint Eastwood’s increasingly controversial biopic Richard Jewell.
Richard Jewell has already been criticised for suggesting that reporter Kathy Scruggs offered to trade sex for information.
Actress and director Olivia Wilde has responded to the cutting of a lesbian sex scene from her movie Booksmart by some airlines showing the movie.
In Reed Morano’s directorial debut, Meadowland, Olivia Wilde plays Sarah, a mother struggling to cope with the mysterious disappearance of her son. Luke Wilson plays her husband, Phil, who, despite being a cop, is rendered just as powerless as his wife. The drama revolves around the couple’s strikingly different reactions to not knowing what has happened to their child, who has been missing for more than a year. In the exclusive clip above, Sarah and Phil are asked to identify a suspect in their case.
Case in point: the exclusive new trailer (above) for the family comedy Love the Coopers whose epic cast includes Diane Keaton, John Goodman, Olivia Wilde, Anthony Mackie, Amanda Seyfried, Marisa Tomei, Ed Helms, Alan Arkin, and June Squibb. If Love the Coopers reminds you of other festive movies with big ensembles, like Garry Marshall’s Valentine’s Day and New Years Eve, that’s OK says director Jessie Nelson, who also wrote and directed the Oscar-nominated 2001 drama I Am Sam.
Shortly after joining the cast of Meadowland, which premiered on Friday night at the Tribeca Film Festival, Olivia Wilde received two major pieces of news: She was pregnant, and writer-director Reed Morano had cancer. It was mid-2013 when Wilde signed up for the drama, in which she plays a mother grieving over the disappearance of her young son. The pregnancy news came first, and instead of looking for another actress, as often happens in a business that requires a filmmaker to strike when the iron is hot, Morano stuck with Wilde as her star.
