Film and TV star Olivia Wilde is the latest actress to admit to having dreams of hitting the stage—only this screen siren doesn’t quite have an empty schedule on the books just yet.
“I have no time, but that’s something I would love to do,” Wilde told BANG Showbiz at the London premiere of Ron Howard's new racing film Rush. “Absolutely, it’s such a dream.”
Now, there are dozens of roles for this rising actress, who even picked her stage name based on legendary playwright Oscar Wilde. We know she can dance (NSFW!), but unfortunately for us, Wilde has admitted that she “cannot sing to save my f—king life.” So there’s likely no Sally Bowles in her future, but that leaves a long list of dramatic roles for the lovely thesp, who could glam it up (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’s Maggie) or just as easily frump down (The Heiress, anyone?).
Wilde’s film and TV credits include House, The O.C., Tron: Legacy, In Time, Year One, Cowboys & Aliens, Drinking Buddies and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.
