Olivia Wilde: Her Best Hair?

Olivia’s been Wilde about acting since the age of two. That’s how old Olivia Wilde was when she caught the acting bug.


The poor girl didn’t stand a chance. The bug spread, eventually turning Olivia into the butt-kicking artificially intelligent life form known as Quorra in 2010’s Tron: Legacy (in which she starred opposite Tabs).

Born Olivia Jane Cockburn on March 10, 1984 in New York City, she took Wilde as her stage name while in high school, borrowing it, she’s said, from Irish author Oscar Wilde to honor the many writers in her family. Journalists, really. Her mother, Leslie Cockburn, is a 60 Minutes producer and journalist. Her father, Andrew Cockburn, who was born in London, England, and raised in Ireland, is also a journalist, as are two of her uncles. From them, she’s said, she inherited a “strong journalistic streak” which made her “really critical and analytical.”

She landed her first major recurring acting role playing Alex Kelly on The O.C. from 2004-2005, and now has a recurring role on House as Dr. Remy “Thirteen” Hadley. Wilde told Star magazine how she sometimes takes cues from her character even when she’s not working, saying, “I’m now convinced that I’m a doctor. I mean, if someone says they have a pain, I’m like, ‘Well, that’s your spleen.'”

When she isn’t busy taking the No. 1 spot on Maxim magazine’s Hot 100, she’s busy acting. Very busy. She has four movies coming out this year — Cowboys & Aliens (YES!), The Change-Up (starring Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman), In Time (sounds pretty neat, sci-fi, starring Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried) and Butter.

Even though she’s seen sporting dark hair most of the time, Olivia’s actually a natural blonde. “I’m a natural blonde,” she’s said, “but I feel like a brunette.”

Whatever you’ve got going on, I hope you have some fun. πŸ™‚

    I plan to jump off the top of a Border’s building over the weekend because they are not going out of business.

    I’m gonna leave all my make-up to you in my will. *sniffle*


  2. Heidi says:

    Tomorrow I’m off to Trader Joe’s to do my weekly grocery shopping. Sunday my friend Mary’s coming up and she’ll be helping me find a birthday gift for my Mom. Looking for a new handbag for Mom.

  3. Megan says:

    You know what, I’m gonna get it out there. The first hair picture? Not so flattering. Does it matter? No. Because Olivia Wilde is smokin’ hot. She could be bald, dreadlocked, mulleted, or 80s permed, and she’d still be ridiculously good looking. So this poll…moot point. The correct answer is “all of them.”

  4. Alex says:

    Ugh, I’m obsessed with her. She’s beautiful and an amazing actress. Not to mention House is my favorite show <3 I like her better brunette

    As for the weekend, my family from England flew in so we're going to take them around the city.
