Woohoo! Are You Wild About Olivia Wilde?

The world became a brighter place for all men March 3, 2011 when Olivia Wilde filed for divorce from her husband of eight years, Tao Ruspoli, in Los Angeles Superior Court. While it is sad to see their marriage has not survived, can we not rejoice that lovely Olivia is now available again? Do you think I have a shot at this gorgeous femme fatale? Hoorah!

Olivia was born Olivia Jane Cockburn but changed her last name to Wilde as an homage to the author Oscar Wilde as well as the many members of her family who were writers including her father and two uncles who are journalists. Or maybe she just did not think "Cockburn" would be the best name for a hot Hollywood actress?

Olivia has starred in many movies such as The Girl Next Door , Alpha Dog , Turistas , Year One and, most recently, Tron: Legacy but became best known for her role on the television series The O.C. Olivia will also be in the upcoming highly anticipated Cowboys and Aliens due out this summer and is currently starring on the television series House . As always we can expect a talented performance from this brilliant star!

It is not surprising that Olivia was ranked #1 in 2009 on Maxim's Hot 100 after barely making the list in 2008, as her star has very quickly risen. The magazine chose her among all the celebrities in the world including Megan Fox and Bar Refaeli and and though she dropped to #20 on the 2010 list, there is no question that her beauty is top of the line. She has also appeared on other "hot" lists in magazines like FHM and was chosen by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) as the Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity of 2010.

Her veganism is something Olivia has been very public about. Vegans differ from vegetarians in that vegans do not consume any animal products such as milk or honey in addition to not eating meat. Some worry this is not a healthy lifestyle, but I can see no problems with Olivia!

Olivia is not someone who is afraid to change her look. She has often lightened her beautiful dark hair to brown or even blond, always looking spectacular no matter the shade. It is her natural beauty that allows this transformation without any loss of attractiveness. But Olivia always looks her absolute best where she keeps her natural dark color and presents herself as God has given her.

While some Hollywood actresses my try to keep all aspects of their personal life under wraps, this is not the case with Olivia. Just she has been open about her life a vegan, so also has she been open about her support of the sometimes liberal side of politics., She has worked with Artists for Peace and Justice which provides education and health services in Haiti, MoveOn.org which promotes public advocacy and many see as a liberal organization, as well as the American Civil Liberties Union in Southern California.

Olivia also campaigned with actors Justin Long and Kal Penn on behalf of Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential election and also supported 18 in '08, a youth voter organization. She recently reveled in an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine that when President Obama called her to thank her for her support, she spent about 15 seconds after she thought she hung up up shrieking with joy only to find out she had not hung up! It would seem Olivia is a mere human after all! LOL!

Olivia was a bit of a wild child growing up, having stated "I was a handful growing up." She has also explained, "Once I took a bus from my home in Maryland to Philadelphia to live on the streets with some musicians for a few weeks, and then my parents sent me to boarding school at Andover to shape me up."

Have the years mellowed Olivia? Well, that is hard to say but certainly you do not see her splashed across the tabloids the way you do many young actresses. As she looks to expand her acting range and perhaps take on more daring roles, she seems content to concentrate on her career rather than partying or making the news in more spectacular ways.

Olivia is rumored to be one of the actresses being seriously considered for the Lois Lane role in the rebooted Superman film. This would be an excellent choice though another actress being mentioned, the stunning Mila Kunis, would be an excellent choice as well. Either of these lovely ladies would bode very well for this upcoming movie!

Olivia Wilde is a very beautiful lady whom I am sure my words cannot do justice. But they say a picture is worth a thousand words so I have tried to include here some photos that may make up for the lacking of my words. I do hope you have enjoyed my hub and please return to read more!
