Olivia Wilde: Peta’s Sexiest Vegetarian of 2010 - - Shown Height of Praise For Jeff Bridges, Co-star in Tron
Olivia Wilde, the House actress — who stars alongside Jeff Bridges in new movie Tron — says the actor is an example of how to do in right in Hollywood.
“Jeff just knows how to have fun. He brings a levity to [acting], a joy to it. That’s rare, believe it or not,” she said.
Wilde — who was recently named Peta’s Sexiest Vegetarian of 2010 — has previously discussed what it’s like to work with Hugh Laurie on House.
“I was so terrified my first day, because he’s so fabulous and he’s immediately disarming,” she said. “Even though he is brilliant at doing drama, he has this amazing sense of humor and a lightness of heart that permeates the room.
“I think that immediately softened me and made me more comfortable and able to do scenes one-on-one with him, which previously I had been so terrified to do, because I thought I would mess up and destroy it for him. But he couldn’t be more encouraging.
“He has, multiple times, allowed me to continue working on a scene that I felt like I hadn’t done my best. And he would say, ‘Well, hold on, let’s do it again. I know they’re pressuring us to move faster. Everybody wants to get out of here. It’s expensive to keep a show running late, but if you need the time, you take the time.’
And having someone like that on the show is invaluable, and I think that’s why it turns out well.”
