Chris Hemsworth and Olivia Wilde drove into the Variety Studio on Saturday to discuss their Formula One pic “Rush,” which premieres Sunday night at the Toronto Film Festival.

“I likened it to Magic Johnson and Larry Bird,” Wilde said of Ron Howard’s new racing feature. “They were rivals who needed each other to achieve greatness.”

Based on the the true story of legendary Formula One drivers Niki Lauda and James Hunt during the 1970s, “Rush” was a smooth operation from day 1, according to the actors, thanks to near flawless script from Peter Morgan.

“I was shooting ‘The Avengers’ at the time I read the script,” Hemsworth recalled. “And the idea of working with Ron (Howard) and a film that was written by Peter Morgan was a no-brainer.”

Morgan, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of “The Queen,” began writing the story of Lauda, a friend of his wife’s, on spec some years ago, intrigued by the driver’s courageous story.

“The dialogue was so sharp,” Wilde boasted of Morgan’s script. “I don’t think people expect from a film about sports, about athletes competing, that you’re going to have such sharp dialogue.”

“(Plus) it was nice to be on a movie which wasn’t being written while we were shooting–there’s a lot movies like that where at lunch they’re like ‘change the ending!’” she laughed.

The only real change, Wilde said, was that Russell Crowe was originally supposed to play billionaire Richard Burton in the film but that scene was eventually cut from the final draft.

“It was such a team effort,” Hemsworth said of independently financed film, applauding Howard for creating an environment where the actors felt free enough to make “the magic” happen, while also championing cinematographer Dod Mantle (“Slumdog Millionaire”), who next reunite with Hemsworth, Howard and Morgan again on their next project “Into the Heart of the Sea” for Warner Bros.

“We’re getting the whole team back together,” he said with a grin.

“Rush,” produced by Working Title Films and Imagine Entertainment, opens nationwide Sept. 27.

Olivia Wilde, star of the new comedy Drinking Buddies, loves good IPAs and deep-fried PB&Js.

You recently Tweeted about eating a deep-fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich: “Never in my life has my stomach orgasmed so mightily.” Where did you encounter such a thing?
Yeah, I didn’t know that existed, and now I’m ruined. I’m gonna turn into Marlon Brando. I had it at the Malibu Inn, which is a great music venue and bar right on the Pacific Coast Highway. My fiancé ordered the deep-fried PB&J—they use waffle batter, so it’s not too bready. The way the peanut butter and jelly melt together is far better than I could have imagined. It’s pretty much the ultimate stoner food.

Your character in Drinking Buddies works at a brewery and constantly drinks beer—usually stout. What did you actually drink during production?
It was always real beer. I drank gallons of beer for this movie! We were getting a lot of it from Revolution Brewing, where our characters work in the movie, which is a real brewery in Chicago. Even though I’m Irish and I love Guinness, dark, dark, dark beers aren’t usually my thing. I like a good, aromatic IPA.

Did you have a decent knowledge of beer before doing the movie?
It was all acquired in the process. On the first day, we were doing research at Three Floyds Brewing Company, and the wort—this boiling, thick, serum-y liquid—splashed into my eyeball. It did not feel good, but I wanted to play it cool and be tough, you know, because I didn’t want to be a sissy. So I kept it together. Now I have become a total beer snob. I’m the annoying person who takes forever in the beer aisle at Whole Foods, because I’m standing there going, “Hmm. I’m not sure. I’m not sure if that’s a good selection. Do you have anything in the back? Is this local? I’ve never heard of this one. How hoppy is this?” And other people are just like, “Please, move on.”

How about wine?
Oh yeah, I’m a wino. I won’t say there’s one grape I like best, though, because I do like blends. Do you know The Prisoner? That’s a blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. That’s just a fabulous wine. But my favorite wine of all time is a Napa Valley Cabernet called Scarecrow. It’s mailing-list only, so it’s hard to find, but if you ever see a bottle of Scarecrow, get it.

You mostly live in New York City these days. Any favorite restaurants?
I have recently fallen in love with an Italian restaurant downtown called Carbone. I’ve always found sea urchin to be too fishy, but at Carbone, they serve a sea urchin dish that is incredible. It’s just garlicky and buttery and amazing. They also make the best linguine vongole I’ve ever had.

You’ve spoken about “self-medicating” with food during tough times. What are your comfort foods of choice?
For me, my number one comfort food—the food that really feels like a hug on the inside—is pasta. Probably a fresh linguine with arrabbiata sauce would be my top pick. Maybe I’d have some bread on the side, with some cheese or olive oil, too. I guess I crave the basic, carby things that we’re not supposed to eat.

When I was in Japan a little while ago, I picked up the idea of having miso soup for breakfast, which I think is genius. When you wake up at 5 a.m. and you feel cold and nauseous, it fills you up and warms you up, and it’s loaded with nutrients.

Olivia Wilde dreams of performing in London’s West End theatres.

The ‘Rush’ actress would love to swap the big screen for the stage, but she has so many upcoming movie commitments she is unable to make room in her busy schedule.

When quizzed on possible theatre plans at the world premiere of ‘Rush’ in London’s Leicester Square on Monday night (02.09.13), she told BANG Showbiz: ”I have no time but that’s something I would love to do. Absolutely. It’s such a dream.”

The 29-year-old beauty turned heads by exposing her cleavage and midriff in a black Gucci blazer on the red carpet and it seems Olivia took inspiration from her supermodel character Suzy Miller – wife of playboy race car driver James Hunt, played by Chris Hemsworth – in the new Formula One biopic, who she believes was equally daring.

She explained: ”She was so cool to play because she epitomises the glamour of the time. She was fearless and confident, and I think she was James’ match. She wasn’t intimidated by him. She wasn’t a long-suffering wife, she was a supermodel and it-girl of the time. They fell in love really quickly and it didn’t last, but I think it was a real hot romance.”

New York-born Olivia – who is dating ‘We’re the Millers’ star Jason Sudeikis – adopted an English accent for the part of Suzy and she admits it wasn’t too difficult because her father, journalist Andrew Myles Cockburn, was born and raised in London.

She added: ”My father has an English accent, so I’ve grown up with it. I didn’t stay in the accent in between shots consistently, but I tried to stay in the rhythm. It helped that the crew had an English accent so I tried to listen to them and stay in it.”

Olivia was joined on the red carpet by co-stars Chris and Daniel Bruhl, ‘Rush’ director Ron Howard, and a host of celebrities including Naomi Campbell and Chris’ brother Liam Hemsworth.

posted by Jennifer • August 29th, 2013 • Comments Off on 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.

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.
