At 32, Olivia Wilde says she’s aging out of Hollywood roles.
“The funniest thing I heard recently was I had heard for a part that I was too sophisticated,” she told Howard Stern on Tuesday. “I was like, ‘Oh, that sounds nice.’ I like that feedback. I didn’t get the part, but I’m a very sophisticated person.”
“And then I found out later that they actually said ‘old,’ the Vinyl star continued. “I want to make a translation sheet for Hollywood that’s all the feedback your agents give you and what it really means.”
It turns out Martin Scorsese’s 2013 film The Wolf of Wall Street was “the one I was too old for,” though she didn’t specify that it was necessarily the role of Naomi Lapaglia, the wife of Leonardo DiCaprio’s character, played by Margot Robbie.
“She’s perfect — she kicked so much ass in the movie,” said Wilde of Robbie’s performance. “I have some ability to cut off emotionally — the second I don’t get a role, it’s dead to me.”
Also, the reason she didn’t have to audition for Vinyl — which counts Scorsese as an executive producer — is because she already showed him her acting chops for Wolf. “It shows that if you don’t get something — job interview, whatever you do for a living — it might lead to something else.”
