Karl-Johan Persson, Barbara Burchfield, Olivia Wilde and Daniel Kulle - H&M, Olivia Wilde, and Conscious Commerce celebration of the opening of The Conscious Pop-Up Shop at H&M Times Square - New York City, New York, United States - Tuesday 14th April 2015
The ‘Tron: Legacy’ actress is mother to 11 month old son, Otis.
While many Hollywood stars seem to bounce back into shape within weeks of giving birth, actress Olivia Wilde has chosen to speak candidly about her post-baby body in a refreshing and (in some places hilarious) manner. Wilde penned the essay for April’s issue of Shape Magazine, less than a year after welcoming son Otis with fiancée Jason Sudeikis.
Olivia Wilde has offered some post-baby 'real talk'
“I am not in perfect shape. In fact, I’m softer than I’ve ever been, including that unfortunate semester in high school when I simultaneously discovered Krispy Kreme and pot,” Wilde wrote. “The photos of me in this magazine have been generously constructed to show my best angles, and I assure you, good lighting has been warmly embraced. The truth is, I’m a mother, and I look like one.”
The annual New York film festival is now in its 14th year.
The line up for this year’s Tribeca Film Festival was announced on Tuesday, with a diverse range of titles from features to documentaries taking part in the annual competition. This year, the best narrative feature category sees 12 films battling it out for the prestigious prize, while 12 documentaries from around the word will compete to be named best documentary feature.
Richard Gere and Dakota Fanning’s hotly tipped Franny will have its world premiere at the festival. Directed by Andrew Renzi the film follows Gere as a wealthy, ageing eccentric who finds a new lease on life by working his way into the life of his late friend’s daughter (Fanning) and her husband, played by Theo James.
Zoe is part of a group of scientists with the goal of bringing people back to life. Having being testing the Lazarus Serum (an injectable substance and the instrument of resurrection) on animals and successfully reviving a dog, they start to believe anything is possible - despite accusations that they are immorally 'playing God'. When the dog starts behaving strangely and dangerously, they discover that there's way too much neural activity going on its brain, but before they can investigate further, Zoe is electrocuted to death. Determined not to lose her, her partner Frank injects her and brings her back to life - with terrifying consequences. Zoe appears to have gained paranormal powers and reveals that she has come back from hell. Now the scientists have the job of keeping the dead dead, lest they unleash a destructive evil unto the world.

The World premiere of 'Horrible Bosses 2' was held at the Odeon West End in London on Wednesday (12th November). Take a look at who attended the star studded event!
Jennifer Aniston at the London premiere of Horrible Bosses 2.
There are moments when this three-strand drama almost ascends to the emotional resonance of writer-director Paul Haggis' Oscar-winning 2004 movie Crash. Perhaps even more ambitious, this film is exploring issues of creativity, attraction and grief, but Haggis puts so much effort into the literary trickery that he fails to create characters the audience can connect with. So the drama ends up being interesting but never moving.
The central plot-thread is in Paris, where blocked writer Michael (Liam Neeson) is holed up in a hotel after leaving his wife (Kim Basinger) and arranging to meet his whip-smart mistress Anna (Olivia Wilde). But their witty romance seems to get entangled with his struggle to write a new novel. Meanwhile in Rome, dodgy American businessman Scott (Adrien Brody) meets Monika (Moran Atias), a sexy Roma woman trying to rescue her kidnapped daughter from local gangsters. With his own haunting back-story involving a lost child, Scott offers to help. And in New York, fallen soap-star Julia (Mila Kunis) has hired a lawyer (Maria Bello) in an effort to get custody of her son from her wealthy-painter ex (James Franco). But her life has gone so far off the rails that it's unlikely any judge will see things her way.
There's a clear sense that these storylines are swirling around in Michael's head as he tries to write. Each character has parent-child issues, including the event that sent Michael's career into a downward spiral. But Haggis never quite defines all of this, leaving ideas and themes dangling everywhere without connecting them to authentic people or experiences. So it's very difficult to get involved in any of the story strands, even though the actors deliver open, raw performances. Kunis has the film's strongest role, a complex journey into the aching soul of a mother, and she plays it beautifully. And Bello finds some moments of consuming emotion in her smaller part. Everything else feels rather cliched, from Neeson and Wilde's cute-prickly romantic games to Brody's journey to the dark side of Italy.

No, regular nursing moms don't look like Olivia Wilde in her Glamour spread. But yes, it might still help.
Things that qualify Olivia Wilde to be a spokesperson for breastfeeding:
A. She is a feminist.
B. She owns breasts.
The 30 year-old actress looked very glamorous while nursing her 3 month-old son.
Olivia Wilde is proud to be a new mother and she wasn't afraid to show this off in a recent photo-shoot for Glamour's September issue. The 30 year-old actress posed with her 3 month-old son, Otis, while breastfeeding.
The brunette beauty is featured sat in a booth at a diner, sporting a Roberto Cavalli dress, Prada heels and a Prada scarf, and with her right breast visible, she looks at her naked newborn lovingly while nursing him.
Rihanna stole the show at the 2014 Cfda Fashion Awards in a sparkling mesh dressunder which her modesty was preserved solely by a G-string. She teamed it with a fur boa and sparkling head-piece that gave her the look of a rude 1920s pin-up.
Love is never uncomplicated and when a third person gets involved, it can make things even more difficult. Michael is an award-winning novelist who has left his wife for a much younger lover. He is in Paris finishing his latest book which eerily seems to reflect his own personal problems which get more intense by the day. Meanwhile, a dodgy businessman named Scott travels to Rome to get involved in a fashion design scam only to meet an attractive young woman named Monika. She reveals that she has finally been given the chance to see her daughter again but when the money she needs to see her is apparently stolen, Scott finds himself embroiled in a much deeper con. Then there's Julia, a former actress who has been refused contact with her child and is going through a serious legal battle to be able to hold her son again.

Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis - Jason Sudeikis and pregnant Olivia Wilde heading to 'Cafe Cluny' in West Village on Olivia's 30th birthday - New York City, New York, United States - Monday 10th March 2014
The 30 year-old actress spoke candidly about her pregnancy, noting the connection she feels with her unborn child: "He's moving around in there and no one else can tell...it's a little secret friendship."
Olivia Wilde is only a month away from giving birth to her first child with Husband Jason Sudeikis, and she has plenty to say about her pregnancy experience.
Although the 30 year-old's Lucy Magazine cover shows no sign of a baby bump (obviously taken months previously) she spoke candidly about still feeling like a "goddess" after nearly nine months of carrying her unborn child.
The 'Cowboys & Aliens' actress also admitted that she liked to show off the changes her body was going through.

Designer and girlfriend to Mick Jagger, L'Wren Scott has committed suicide.
L'Wren Scott has been found dead in her Manhattan apartment this morning after what is believed to have been a suicide. The 49 year-old fashion designer and girlfriend of The Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger was found by her assistant who received a text from L'Wren asking them to "come by," according to the NY Post.
Fashion Designer L'Wren Scott Was Found Dead By Her Assistant This Morning.
A spokesperson for New York City Police Department did not confirm that the body found was Scott's but said: "A 49-year-old female was found this morning at 10.05am at 200 11th Avenue. She was unconscious. She was pronounced dead on arrival by the emergency medical services. The investigation is ongoing. We are awaiting medical examiners to determine the cause of death."
With only a hint of a futuristic setting, Spike Jonze takes a remarkably honest look at human emotions as a man and his computer's intelligent operating system fall madly in love with each other. Utterly grounded in believable characters and situations, this is a boldly inventive exploration of how we connect with each other. It's also one of the most involving, witty and evocative movies of the year.
It's set just a few years into the future, when we've essentially done away with keyboards and talk to our phones and computers. So Theodore (Phoenix) works in a company that writes letters for people who want a more tactile way of communicating. While trying not to let his recent divorce from Caroline (Mara) influence his work, his friends (Adams and Letscher) set him up on a blind date with a sexy woman (Wilde). But he's not quite ready to move on until he begins opening up to his new interactive operative system, which calls herself Samantha (voiced by Johansson). And she has such an open-hearted personality that Theodore can't help but fall for her.
The film has a breezy, fable-like tone that allows heavy themes to emerge without weighing us down. Indeed, the central idea is that relationships are difficult because we can't help but evolve individually, which sometimes means drifting apart. Obviously, this has huge ramifications when your partner is a limitless computer mind that will never stop expanding. But Theodore doesn't want to think about this; he is frightened by the idea that Samantha is changing. Yes, despite the vaguely surreal premise, the film is packed with things we readily identify with.
Continue reading: Her Review
Theodore Twombley is a reserved man going through the hardest time of his life with his divorce from his childhood sweetheart Catherine. One day, he decides to buy a new kind of OS that has an artificial intelligence that can evolve into having almost human like feelings. He chooses a female identity for his OS and thus meets the disembodied Samantha who offers him company with her witty and insightful remarks and frequent flattery. When he finds out his friend Amy has also made a friend out of her estranged husband's OS, he begins to feel that his feelings towards Samantha may not be so strange at all and allows himself to fall deeply in love with her. However, as much as they have managed to bond, he starts to worry about the consequences of limitations of their relationship and begins to wonder just how genuine their relationship really is.

Despite being voted PETA's 2010 Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity, Olivia Wilde is giving up her vegan lifestyle over the course of her pregnancy.
29-year-old actress Olivia Wilde is giving up her vegan lifestyle for the duration of her pregnancy. The 'Rush' actress is expecting her first child with 'Horrible Bosses' actor Jason Sudeikis - her fiancé - and had decided to reintroduce animal products into her diet for the first time in five years, in which she has been a vegan. For this, Wilde was named as PETA's Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity in 2010.
In an interview with 'E! News' on 11th December, 2013, Wilde was asked if she was intending to stick to the vigorous diet, to which she replied: ''No, I'm not.'' She has, however, expressed support for the lifestyle and suggested that she intends to return to it next year after the birth of her baby. Despite this, Wilde has spoken about how hard the vegan lifestyle is in the past, despite having been a vegetarian for years beforehand.

Small and earthy, this low-key drama simply follows a group of 30-ish characters as they use their friends to sort out their own issues. It's nicely played with a raw openness, although filmmaker Swanberg has a tendency to overdramatise scenes to make a point rather than letting things play out organically. Even so, it's sometimes painfully easy to identify with these flawed people.
The story is set around a small Chicago brewery, where Kate (Wilde) works in the office then hangs out after hours with the guys who make the beer. So she's often late arriving home to her music producer boyfriend Chris (Livingston). For a weekend away, Kate and Chris are joined by Kate's work buddy Luke (Johnson) and his girlfriend Jill (Kendrick). But as they hike in the countryside and hang out together, attraction springs up in all the wrong places. Back home, Kate and Chris decide to separate, while Jill heads off on a long-planned holiday on her own. And as Luke helps Kate put her life back together, their flirtation comes to a head.
In fine mumblecore style, this film meanders through its scenes focussing on conversations while skipping over some key moments that might have helped us understand things more clearly. It feels more like a slice of life than a plot-driven story, even though we can see early on that Kate and Luke are on a potentially messy collision course. Fortunately, both Wilde and Johnson bring offhanded honesty to their roles, creating realistically awkward interaction that bristles with possibilities. These are people at a specific point in life where they feel the need to settle down even as they're still exploring their options.

This will be the first time either have become parents. Congratulations!
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis are about to be parents! According to a report from People Magazine, the twosome are expecting their first child together after almost two years as a couple. This also marks the first time that either of the pair have had children before. Congratulations guys!
Wilde, 29, and Sudeikis, 38, first met in 2011 on the season finale of Saturday Night Live. After seeing each other on and off for a few months, six months after the faithful episode Jason and Olivia began dating exclusively and, in January this year, the pair got engaged to each other. With a wedding date set for 2014, the couple may wait until after the baby before they have the wedding, in order to accomodate Olivia's burgeoning baby bump. They could also bring it forward, or alternatively just continued with whatever plans they may have regardless of how big Olivia is.
"They are incredibly happy,” a source close to the two, speaking with People, said. “They’re very excited to welcome a new member into their family.”

So which movies made Tarantino's list for 2013?
Movie buffs have begun to anticipate Quentin Tarantino's Top 10 movies lists in recent years. The legendary director's run-down of his favorite movies of the year has made for interesting reading in recent years and is often regarded as the antithesis of the Academy's choices of the year's best.
He passed on devising a list last year, owing to Django Unchained, though in 2011 Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris - a wonderful movie that actually went onto win Best Original Screenplay at the Oscars - topped Quentin's list, edging out Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the excellent Moneyball, with Brad Pitt. Tarantino threw in a couple of curveballs with X-Men: First Class, The Skin I Live In, Attack The Block and Warrior.

There's been a lot of head-scratching after 'Third Person' premiered at TIFF.
Third Person has premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, challenging audiences with its interwoven storyline and unanswered questions. Paul Haggis directed the romantic drama which employs a star-studded cast and some glamorous locations.
Paul Haggis: The Riddler.
Starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, Liam Neeson, Adrien Brody, Maria Bello, Olivia Wilde and Kim Basinger, Third Person incorporates three interlocking love stories in Rome, Paris and New York In Paris, Neeson plays Michael; a writer who leaves his wife and begins and on/off relationship with his lover Anna, played by Olivia Wilde. However Anna is unable to commit to Michael because she has a troubling secret that affects her life.
Exhilarating racing action punctuates this true story, which sharply traces the rivalry between two Formula One champs. It's superbly well-shot and edited, with engaging performances from the entire cast. And with only one moment of calculated sentimentality, it's director Ron Howard's most honest movie in years.
The story begins in the early 1970s, when two rising-star F1 drivers clash over their very different styles. Britain's James Hunt (Hemsworth) is a swaggering womaniser, revelling in the rock-star lifestyle. By contrast, Austria's Niki Lauda (Bruhl) is a fiercely detailed technician who loves pushing barriers. They clearly see things they like in each other, so their different approaches on the track develop into a competitive relationship that spurs them to the front of the pack. Over the years, both meet their wives (Wilde and Lara, respectively) and move from team to team as they rise to the top of their sport. And their rivalry comes to a head at the 1976 German Grand Prix when world champion Lauda is involved in a horrific, fiery accident.
Morgan's script is essentially two biopics cleverly woven together to let us see the push and pull between these two iconic figures. Unexpectedly, Bruhl's Lauda emerges as the stronger character, with his grounded approach and sardonic wit allowing Bruhl to play effectively with submerged emotions. By contrast, Hemsworth's Hunt is little more than a gifted good-time boy who isn't worried about his lack of substance. It's a likeable, loose performance (we barely notice the wobbly British accent). Opposite them Lara and Wilde provide solid, subtle support, as do the fine actors who fill out the pit crews.
