She's comfortable in her own skin
For Olivia Wilde, it often boils down to dispelling the myth that celebrities are free of imperfections. She wants fans to know that in film, lighting and a whole lot of makeup achieve that flawless look so many covet. That's why when she hears tabloids call her or other female stars "brave" for going in public without makeup, she takes issue. "I don't hear people calling men brave for not wearing foundation," she's said.
She goes after what she wants
Olivia Wilde is no damsel in distress, and she's certainly not waiting around for Prince Charming to sweep her off her feet. That's why after meeting fiance Jason Sudeikis at a "Saturday Night Live" afterparty, she made the first move. Instead of waiting for him to ask her out, Olivia instructed a friend to give him her number, ensuring he knew without a doubt that she was interested.
She's her own boss
Along with her bestie, Barbara (Babs) Burchfield, Olivia Wilde founded Conscious Commerce, a philanthropic business dedicated to connecting brands to nonprofits. Their goal was to allow people to donate to charities they loved by shopping for products they already want. According to Olivia, "It should be shocking when a product isn't somehow helping the people who made it."
She enjoys an awkward moment
For some stars, the idea of accidentally twinning with another celeb on the red carpet is enough to make them back up, get in their cars and drive away. Not so for Olivia Wilde! During the recent Tiffany HardWear Collection launch party in New York City, the actress stunned fans by debuting a new bleached-blond bob — a 'do that looked strikingly similar to her good friend Kate Mara's. Instead of being embarrassed, Olivia posed for a pic with her pal and laughed off the fact that she unintentionally "single-white-femaled" her.
She's got wisdom for days
Shortly before her 30th birthday a few years ago, Olivia Wilde wrote an essay for Glamour about her dos and don'ts of stepping into the third decade of life, and let's just say her advice was sage-worthy. Whether she's encouraging us to avoid comparing ourselves to our peers or giving us permission to not settle for the wrong guy out of desperation, Olivia has uncanny insight that's usually reserved for senior citizens, and we love her for it.
She helps impoverished children like it's NBD
Like Olivia Wilde wasn't busy enough! In her free time, she volunteers for the educational organization Artists for Peace and Justice, which helps raise funds to build schools and create educational programs for children in Haiti. The organization opened the very first free secondary education school in the slums of Port-au-Prince, giving children a chance for a better future.
She takes sides
Not one to stay quiet, Olivia Wilde has repeatedly spoken up about sexism in Hollywood and the need for better and richer roles for female actresses. She even shared how enlightening it was when she participated in a live read event in which men delivered the actresses' lines from the film "American Pie" while women read the guys' lines. The men quickly realized that female parts were less inclusive and "more boring," she said.
She's not just a pretty face
Yes, Olivia Wilde can act, but she also has a passion for filmmaking. To date, she's produced six films, including four documentaries, and directed four video shorts. Her experience producing has helped her understand how she can push for better films as an actress too. "There are so many stories out there that need to be told but… they need people to fight for them," she shared at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.
She can make us cry
For World Down Syndrome Day 2016, Olivia Wilde took a role in an incredible video ad challenging the idea of what it means to have Down syndrome. The video, which will totally bring tears to your eyes, was a clear message to viewers that just because people with Down syndrome might be perceived as disabled or different, they are capable, loving human beings who see themselves like everyone else.
She's unapologetically feminist
When asked why she thinks feminism "rocks the boat," Olivia Wilde couldn't even believe that was a real thing. To her, feminism is all about gender equality, which is something she feels everyone should be on board with. "If people understand it simply means equality, then possibly they would have an easier time standing up for that," she told HuffPost Live.
She'll call out the inauthentic
A few months ago while Christmas shopping online (like us), Olivia Wilde noticed an Amazon ad that featured a slender model wearing a breast-pumping bra. She took to Instagram to make it clear that the woman wearing the bra (one she herself owns and loves) clearly had never had kids and did not represent real women post-childbirth. Then — because she's Olivia — she said she also wanted to give the model a hug. Awww!
She'll get her point across with a middle finger
Who doesn't love a lady who knows how to shout expletives without making a sound? Olivia Wilde is known to boldly flip the bird whenever the mood strikes, and the politically charged climate of late has given her some serious inspiration.
She doesn't hide away
While posing for Glamour magazine, Olivia Wilde — now a mother of two — did what came naturally: She breast fed her baby. She explained that since having son Otis, keeping a baby latched on her breast felt totes normal. The magazine included a gorgeous pic of Olivia nursing her son and gave her the opportunity to help normalize breastfeeding.
She plays by her own rules
Once considered Hollywood's go-to actress for lesbian characters — check out her work on "House" and "The O.C." (pictured) — Olivia Wilde claims industry "friends" warned her that if she continued to play homosexual roles, some viewers might think she's actually gay. The actress responded with a big fat "So what?" and kept right on accepting the roles she felt drawn to. In fact, she says she takes being perceived as gay as a compliment.
