Olivia Wilde is featured in the newest “Beauty Issue” of “The Hollywood Reporter” magazine. She is profiled along with her makeup artist Melanie Inglessis and hairstylist Mara Roszak. Check out a video from their photo shoot below.
Sony Pictures Classics has acquired U.S., German and Scandinavian rights to “Third Person,” directed by Paul Haggis, two months after its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.
Written and directed by Haggis, the film stars Liam Neeson, Kim Basinger, Adrien Brody, James Franco, Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, and Maria Bello. Michael Nozik of Hwy61 and Haggis produced the film along with Paul Breuls of Corsan, who also provided the financing.
Sony Pictures Classics said, “Paul Haggis is one of our great movie storytellers and ‘Third Person’ is one of his best works featuring an exceptional cast led by Liam Neeson (also at his best).”
Haggis told Variety after the premiere that audiences would have a strong reaction to the romance.
“People are going to either love it or hate it, like ‘Crash,’” Haggis told Variety. “A lot of people want their movies to be easily understood, underlined and in bold. I want people to talk about this movie afterwards. As an industry, we need to respect the audience more.”
The premiere at the Elgin evoked sustained applause for the complex drama of three intertwined relationships: James Franco and Mila Kunis in New York; Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde in Paris; and Adrien Brody and Moran Atias in Rome.
Haggis began writing the film after completing work on “The Next Three Days,” drawing largely from his own life with an emphasis on the themes of denial, loss and love. He began shooting in January with a 45-day shoot, adding, “It was a healthy budget for an indie but a little uncomfortable.”
It was the third time that Haggis has premiered a film at Toronto. “Crash” screened in 2004 and “In the Valley of Elah” opened there in 2007.
Haggis was nominated for screenwriting Oscars for three straight years for “Million Dollar Baby,” “Crash,” and “Letters From Iwo Jima.” He won screenplay and picture Oscars for “Crash.”
Haggis approached the challenge of writing three stories by doing them one at a time and then mixing and matching the components — with much of that work done in the editing process and in small screenings earlier this year.
Bruels came on board in May 2012 when Neeson and Wilde were attached.
Corsan got 50% of the funding through Belgian tax credits, which require spending money on Belgian elements like development, crew and post-production. “Having that is a formidable cornerstone for the rest of your financing,’ Breuls added.

And baby makes three!
Olivia Wilde, 29, and Jason Sudeikis, 38, are expecting their first child together, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.
“They are incredibly happy,” says a source close to both. “They’re very excited to welcome a new member into their family.”
Reps for the couple confirm to PEOPLE that Wilde is pregnant with their first child.
The two first met on the season finale of Saturday Night Live in 2011 and began dating six months later. They got engaged in January.
Earlier this year, Wilde said she was excited to start a family with Sudeikis in the future. “He’s so good with kids,” she told Marie Claire. “I’m open-minded about how many, but three is like a little party.”
Ex-princess, ex-TV star and current movie star Olivia Wilde is so good at Obamacare.
Wilde appeared on Billy Eichner’s Funny or Die’s curbside game show “Obamacare or Shut Up,” in which she had to separate the facts about the Affordable Care Act from Eichner’s unrelated ramblings.
Here are a few Obamacare facts: Preventative care is now free, if you’re sick insurance can’t limit your benefits cap, and if you’re under 26, then you can stay on your parents insurance plan.
And Gwyneth Paltrow was in a movie about sex addiction. Shut up.
In the world according to Olivia Wilde, social responsibility is as necessary to being human as breathing—or shopping. While the face of Revlon may be best known for seducing married men in The Change Up and Butter (and sometimes women on The O.C.) she is also an avid humanitarian. Her latest pet project is Conscious Commerce, an organization she launched with her best friend Barbara Burchfield (the woman behind Global Citizen Festival), with the goal of changing how people shop. The premise is simple: pair retail items with a vetted, charitable cause, and turn shopping into a fundraising tool.
For its latest collaboration, Conscious Commerce paired up with Anthropologie and designer Yoana Baraschi to create a garment that gives back (and is available online now). The sweet, tulle-embroidered “New Light” dress (often worn by Wilde herself) will benefit the New Light school in Kolkata, India. The organization serves as an orphanage and health clinic that allows children in the low income, red light districts of the city to escape sex trafficking and violence. One hundred percent of the profits from the first 1,000 dresses sold will go directly to funding the school.

Olivia Wilde is back on the big screen after starring in the comedy “Drinking Buddies.” This time, she’s part of the Ron Howard film “Rush,” playing a 1970s supermodel.
“I love the ’70s, and I’ve always loved the ’70s – the music, the fashion. I’m inspired by it. I think I would’ve done well then,” said Wilde.
In “Rush,” Wilde plays supermodel Suzy Miller, who would one day marry actor Richard Burton. But before Burton, she had a relationship with Formula One star James Hunt, and that relationship is part of “Rush.”
“I did a lot of background research. I did as much as I could about Suzy and James,” said Wilde. “And it was fun because they were a really interesting couple. They were exciting. They were sort of like Johnny Depp and Kate Moss. They fill bathtubs full of champagne and go crazy in it?”
“There was something so wild about them, and yet they got married which was this incredibly insane, kind of optimistic thing to do. It was short-lived but powerful,” said Wilde.
Death is definitely a possibility in the racing world, and in this movie, you see the danger spinning all over the track.
“I didn’t know anything about racing before,” said Wilde. “That’s the thing, Americans don’t know a lot about Formula One. We don’t have to. We understand when we see it on film.”
“Rush” is based on a true story of the intense rivalry between two famous Formula One drivers: James Hunt and Niki Lauda.
“I liken it to, as far as sports rivalries go, Magic [Johnson] and [Larry] Bird – two people whose rivalry drove them to greatness, and that made a lot of sense to me,” said Wilde. “Watching it, I think, allows you to understand that’s kind of a universal experience for people who are at the top of their game.”
“Rush” is rated R and is in limited release this weekend.
