The beautiful Olivia Wilde lands the October cover of Harper’s Bazaar Spain. I love the cover, she looks great. The photo of her kicking up her leg is great too. Olivia is currently promoting her two new movies, ‘Drinking Buddies’ and ‘Rush.’ I want to see ‘Drinking Buddies’ because it looks like a cute romantic comedy, but ‘Rush’ looks downright boring to me. I don’t like 70s movies, never have.
Anyway – they haven’t released anything from the interview of this magazine, so I’m hopping over to an interview she did with Food & Wine (because her ‘Drinking Buddies’ movie is all about BEER!). She tells the magazine that she has terrible eating habits – and maybe she does – but I find it slightly irritating to hear her talk about it, when she obviously works out. She doesn’t come across as snobby as some celebs who swear they NEVER work out, and eat whatever they want. I guess maybe Olivia’s more down to earth than we thought?
Deep-fried PB&J: “Now I’m ruined. I’m gonna turn into Marlon Brando. I had it at the Malibu Inn, which is a great music venue and bar right on the Pacific Coast Highway. My fiancé ordered the deep-fried PB&J–they use waffle batter, so it’s not too bready. The way the peanut butter and jelly melt together is far better than I could have imagined. It’s pretty much the ultimate stoner food.”
Beer: “Even though I’m Irish and I love Guinness, dark, dark, dark beers aren’t usually my thing. I like a good, aromatic IPA. Now I have become a total beer snob. I’m the annoying person who takes forever in the beer aisle at Whole Foods, because I’m standing there going, ‘Hmm. I’m not sure. I’m not sure if that’s a good selection. Do you have anything in the back? Is this local? I’ve never heard of this one. How hoppy is this?’ And other people are just like, ‘Please, move on.’”
Wine: “Oh yeah, I’m a wino. I won’t say there’s one grape I like best, though, because I do like blends. Do you know The Prisoner? That’s a blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. That’s just a fabulous wine. But my favorite wine of all time is a Napa Valley Cabernet called Scarecrow. It’s mailing-list only, so it’s hard to find, but if you ever see a bottle of Scarecrow, get it.”
Pasta: “I have recently fallen in love with an Italian restaurant downtown called Carbone. I’ve always found sea urchin to be too fishy, but at Carbone, they serve a sea urchin dish that is incredible. It’s just garlicky and buttery and amazing. They also make the best linguine vongole I’ve ever had. For me, my number one comfort food–the food that really feels like a hug on the inside–is pasta. Probably a fresh linguine with arrabbiata sauce would be my top pick. Maybe I’d have some bread on the side, with some cheese or olive oil, too. I guess I crave the basic, carby things that we’re not supposed to eat.”
