It’s a shining late September morning in Los Angeles and Olivia Wilde is sitting, cross-legged, in front of a bunch of bare butts. Male butts, to be exact: smooth and shapely and dripping with water as the men they belong to emerge from a swimming pool in the black-and-white photograph that is on the wall of her sunny living room. “This is how we want them,” Wilde deadpans from her perch on a mustard-colored velvet sofa.

Wilde, who has spent her nearly two-decade-long acting career as an object of male veneration, knows a thing or two about the rewards, and the risks, of being subjected to a prurient, if admiring, gaze. She can count, among her myriad accomplishments, winning the “hottest Olivia” accolade in Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards in 2010; lately, she’s been under the public microscope alongside her beau, Harry Styles, who, on the day of my visit, is off trotting the globe for his Love On Tour concerts. This house is a respite from all that scrutiny. When Wilde rented it this past spring, it had already been furnished in a precisely curated, Instagrammable style; we might be in a Design Within Reach catalog. So Wilde can’t take credit for the cheeky art selection or the cheerful, modern decor, or for the sumptuous backyard pool that beckons from every angle of the first floor. Nor, she laughingly assures me, is she responsible for the two unseasonal gingerbread houses displayed on the kitchen counter, which are the handi­work of her kids, Otis, seven, and Daisy, five, whom she shares with her ex-fiancé, Jason Sudeikis.

Wilde has been camped out in Los Angeles since the coronavirus arrived during the week of her 36th birthday. At the time, she was living nearby with Sudeikis and preparing to start shooting her second feature film, Don’t Worry Darling, a psychological thriller starring Florence Pugh and Styles as Alice and Jack, a young couple who join a utopian community in the 1950s California desert. Clearly, it’s been a productive pandemic. A year and a half later, Wilde has emerged with a flourishing new relationship and a nearly finished movie. Just before my visit, the appearance of an 11-second teaser-​trailer showing Styles and Pugh making out, Chris Pine screaming in a white tuxedo, Busby Berkeley–style showgirls kaleidoscopically high-kicking, and Pugh trying to rip a cellophane shroud from her face, promptly sent the internet into a fit of ecstatic delirium.

Because of COVID, New Line, which is producing the film, had suggested delaying production until the following year, but Wilde fought to get started as soon as possible; when filming finally began, after a six-month delay, it had to pause twice, each time for a two-week stretch, when someone on set tested positive for COVID. Wilde has no doubt that the extraordinary challenges of shooting under such conditions were worth it. “Every bone in my body knew we had to make it when we did,” she tells me. “I couldn’t be deterred.”

Don’t Worry Darling is slated to be released in September 2022. Wilde has been holed up at home to edit the film, though she finds time to decompress; her TV show of choice has been the HBO Max comedy Hacks. As an East Coast native, she hasn’t totally managed to shake her instinctive skepticism of Los Angeles. “But then this….” She gestures outdoors, letting the pool and the glorious sunshine speak for themselves. “And for kids, it is so much easier. They come home from school and just run out and expend all their energy.” [More at Source]
