OLIVIA WILDE (Director) is a modern-day renaissance woman. From directing to Broadway to starring in popular films and television shows, Wilde continues to elevate her versatile presence all while simultaneously giving back to the community. Wilde has had a bustling few years on the motion picture side. Recently, Wilde produced and starred in the film A Vigilante as a secretive figure that rids victims of their domestic abusers and received critical acclaim for her role in the difficult yet timely subject matter. The film, which premiered in March at SXSW to raved reviews, is set to release on DirecTV on February 28 and theatrically on March 29 of this year. Wilde also produced and starred in the drama Meadowland, garnering significant praise for her emotionally charged performance. Additional past film credits include the Oscar-winning drama Her, the Golden Globe-nominated Rush and the critically acclaimed indie comedy Drinking Buddies, which she also executive produced. Broadening her horizons even further, in 2017, Wilde wrapped her Broadway debut in "1984," the harrowing adaptation of George Orwell's dystopian tale. Starring alongside Tom Sturridge and Reed Birney, Wilde received immense acclaim for anchoring the play as Julia, the woman with whom the protagonist begins an affair. The show began previews in May and ran a vigorous, yet extremely successful run through October. On the television side, Wilde starred in HBO's rock 'n' roll drama "Vinyl" from creators Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter. She also previously starred on FOX's hit medical drama "House." Along with her work in front of the camera, Wilde continues to expand her roles behind-the-scenes. She has served as executive producer on several documentary films, her most recent being the short, Fear Us Women, which won Best Documentary Short at the 2017 Napa Valley Film Festival. Additionally, she executive produced Body Team 12, which premiered at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, won the award for "Best Documentary Short" and was nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Documentary Short category. She also directed the video for "Dark Necessities," a five-minute music short for the well-known funk rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers. Additionally, she directed the music video "No Love Like Yours," the first single off of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros' sophomore album. Wilde co-founded the philanthropic company Conscious Commerce, with the mission to create a guide for conscious living by promoting the causes, brands, people and lifestyles that are forging a new paragon of living. Wilde was recently honored by Save the Children with their Advocate Award in recognition of her galvanizing support for frontline aids helping save the lives of thousands of mothers and children through the 1 Million Community Health Workers Campaign. Additionally, the organization named Wilde as an artist ambassador focusing on maternal, newborn and child survival. She is also a board member of Artists for Peace and Justice and the ACLU of Southern California.
