Olivia Wilde in black Gucci at the ‘Burt Wonderstone’ premiere: pretty or cheap?

Here are some photos from the Hollywood premiere of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone last night. The red carpet was kind of meh – the only A-listers were Steve Carell and Jim Carrey, and while I like both men a lot, you can’t make me do a “Who Would You Rather?” post about them. Fine, okay, I would rather hit it with Steve. Are you happy?!

The only notable woman in attendance was Steve and Jim’s costar Olivia Wilde, she of the eye-rolling inducing Marie Claire interview yesterday and months of throwing her ex-husband under the proverbial bus. I’m shocked (!) that Olivia’s Kenyan-marathon-sex lover Jason Sudeikis wasn’t at her side at the premiere! Probably because he’s in New York, doing something else? Probably. Anyway, Olivia wore this unflattering, poorly designed Gucci gown that doesn’t do much for her. Olivia has that tall, slim build like a model, so she could really bring it to red carpets, but she rarely does. Oh, did we ever talk about her engagement ring? Photographers got a closeup of it:

It looks like a round diamond with an emerald surround and yellow gold? It’s pretty. I like that it’s not all blinged-out, and it actually seems to suit her.

And here are some photos of Jim and Steve. I LOVE Jim’s silver shoes. Those things are badass! And I love Steve’s wife (Nancy Walls) and her dress. Steve looks pretty good, doesn’t he? I mean, he looks like an attractive husband and father at a PTA meeting.

    Olivia has overshared her welcome, not really a fan anymore. I think Steve’s wife looks better.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I don’t like that dress but she always looks beautiful to me. That being said, I cannot stand her.

    • flor says:

      When you are an “it” girl, you have to play your cards the way JLaw is playing them: snatching great roles and building a great resectable resume because Hollywood gives you two or three years of that reputation and then you are gone.

      I like Olivia though, but I think she would do better in a TV show than in movies.

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        Except that it was JLaws first Oscar nom that made her an it girl. All of the new it girl actresses(Emma Stone, Rooney Mara) have already a better career than Olivia.
        Hollywood tried to make her happen, but the public is not interested. She is Jessica Biel 2.0.

      • Amelia says:

        Is Rooney Mara considered an ‘it’ girl? Just wondering, since for the most part she always struck me as more of an indie actress, barring Side Effects and Dragon Tattoo (although I suppose Tattoo didn’t have a huge target audience.) And the distinct lack of paparazzi photo ops (unlike Emma Stone, et al) sort of puts her in a different category (in my mind, at least. Which isn’t a particularly great bench mark to use, seeing as I can barely remember my own name today).
        Anyway, back on topic; Oliva Wilde irritates me. Stop slamming your ex, for goodness sake and take your newly resucitated biscuit elsewhere.

      • oliveo says:

        Rooney Mara was originally cast in the lead role for Zero Dark Thirty, and she’s already got an Oscar Nom for Girl w/ the Dragon Tattoo– I think she’s been somewhat out of the spotlight because the industry doesn’t know how to brand her yet. She could be for real. And her sister Kate KILLS it in House of Cards.

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        Rooney IMO is not too different from the other it actresses except she is not trying to be a people pleaser, she is on the cover of high end magazines such as Vogue, Interview etc, she is more of a fashion girl than JLaw, she does indies(so does JLaw)and has a potentional franchise with GWTDT, and had one with the bad remake of Nightmare on Elm Street, for which she signed a contract over 3 movies before she got her breakthrough as Lisbeth Salander and got out of the contract.

        As far as photo ops, I think opposite to Emma neither Rooney nor JLaw do them, but JLaw´s pics sell due to THG success and her Oscar win, therefore she is a pap target, plus she lives in LA.

        I think they are trying to brand Rooney as the new Winona Ryder, so far she had only two major roles, so we have to wait and but I can see them going for that. I like Rooney, even though she is not really popular around here(for legitimate reasons)and I am really excited for that Bonnie and Clyde movie with Ben Forster and the Terrence Malick movie with Fassy and Gosling.

    I love Steve Carrell, and I think he looks really great here. He’s getting distinguished-looking and more handsome as he ages (oh, you men! Why can’t it be like that for women).

    Olivia should stop with the heavy under-eye eyeliner; it is not attractive. Love her ring, though.

  3. Hubbahun says:

    Steve and his lovely wife look fab! I really don’t get any iof the fuss over Olivia Wilde, I think she’s average looking (well, in that, if she went to same grocery store as I do, she’d stand out but that’s it) and a mediocre actress. She actually ruined House for me.

    • Eleonor says:

      THIS. That 13een thing was simply awful, but I think they should have ended the show when the cast changed: the first 3 seasons of House were simply brilliant, after, except some episodes here and there,it was meh.

    • alc says:

      I think the Carrels look fabulous and I love the colour of her dress. I agree with you about Olivia Wilde. That whole House thing was such a debacle it had my husband cursing at the tv. I used to think OW had that exotic beauty thing going on but I think she looks a little haggard these days. I guess there’s only so much sh***ing a girl can take before she starts looking tired!

    • Relli says:

      I dont know about House but at the end of Tron2 where she is dying and he is racing to get her to the surface or whatever I burst out in uncontrollable laughter. Not because it was a particular funny scene but because her “dying” in the movie was really bad acting.

  4. Erinn says:

    I try to skim over her interviews. I kind of like her, but know I wont like her as much if I read them. I really really like the engagement ring though. It’s different. I used to really want a diamond surrounded by sapphire, similar to the style she’s wearing.

    And I just love Steve.

    • Sweet Dee says:


      I agree completely! I don’t hate her as much as I should or I would if I read more of her interviews. I can’t help it though, she’s the kind of person I check out her clothes/photo spread, say “aw, pretty,” and move on.

      That said, I LOVE her ring. It’s gorge, IMO, and I rarely like yellow gold. The one you’re describing sounds even prettier though.

      I can’t not love Steve Carrell.

  5. GoodCapon says:

    Well I wouldn’t wear Olivia’s dress, that’s for sure.

  6. bea says:

    OW’s dress looks too big and the fabric looks cheap. Also, her hair looks kinda bad. She can look better than this.

    Silver shoes can be the perfect accessory. I actually think they look good on JK.

    Steve C & his wife look very normal.

    I wonder if this film will be any good – the previews were funny……..

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      Her hair is awful. When you have that rectangle shaped head you can’t make a part down the middle flattering.

      Ring is pretty.

  7. Mayday says:

    omg steve carell’s salt and pepper!!! I love it!!!

  8. Momoftwo says:

    I don’t know why but I have always found Jim Carey attractive for some reason… (Hangs head in shame…)

    • Will says:

      Probably because when he isnt making a bunch of goofy faces hes a very tall, conventionally attractive dude.

      • Tessa says:

        Yes, this. He’s goodlooking, when he’s not distorting his face. He has pretty classic goodlooking guy features.

      • GoodCapon says:

        I wouldn’t ever hit him, but he looked really good in a rugged way in Eternal Sunshine.

  9. Will says:

    Shes hot but holy shit does that Burt Wonderstone movie look like a flaming pile of crap.

  10. Tessa says:

    The glasses and salt and pepper on Steve? Hot.

  11. cathy says:

    Who dresses Olivia? That person needs to be fired. She’s so pretty, she could be really beautiful if she had a decent stylist.

  12. Spooks says:

    Steve Buscemi and Alan Arkin are in this movie. I shall watch it.

  13. emmie_a says:

    For such a beautiful woman, she never *shines* or stands out or *pops* — she’s just there.

  14. Deedee says:

    I dont think Olivia is model tall. She is smaller than Jason Sudeikis.

  15. lisa says:

    her hair looks underdone for the dress and that center part makes her forehead look enormous

  16. j.eyre says:

    Jim looks great as does Steve. I think Nancy is just lovely.

  17. TheOriginalWaffle says:

    Steve’s wife looks a little Mother of the Bride, but what a color!

    Olivia’s dress looks homemade and sack-tastic. Can’t argue with the ring, though. The emerald detail sets it apart from other celebrity “biggest diamond possible” rings.

  18. KellyinSeattle says:

    Olivia’s dress looks like it has lint on it…..I LOVE Steve and Jim Carrey…saw Steve on Ellen and he was so funny and he also talked about his kids.

  19. maitri says:

    olive reminds me of miranda kerr….
    and she is like kate bosworth more than jessica biel, to me….fashionable and pretty, but not really noteworthy….
    biel is even less than that on my radar-she’d be invisible were it not for her recent marriage.

  20. Embee says:

    I bet the ring is a nod to her beautiful/unusual eye color. Very sweet.

  21. Meggie says:

    I like the dress, she’s a pretty pronounced pear shape which she gets a lot of flack for and this hides that. I also like the sparkle to it. Love the ring even tho I’m not big on diamonds. This is tastefully flashy.

  22. lola lola says:

    She is one of those women who look better with less makeup. She is so naturally gorgeous! She looked amazing on House but in those Revlon ads, with 5 pounds of makeup on, she looks terrible. Nice dress but the heavy eye-do only takes away from her gorgeous face.
    p.s. Stunning ring. Wish it was mine!
