Olivia Wilde Deemed “Too Old” To Play Leonardo Dicaprio’s Wife in Wolf of Wall Street

There are many things males may think of Olivia Wilde, but too old to play Leonardo DiCaprio’s wife in Wolf of Wall Street can’t be one of them, can it?  Well, unfortunately that’s how disgusting Hollywood can be.  If you’ll recall, beautiful Aussie Margot Robbie got the role and she was only 23 at the time.   We all know how rampant sexism can be in the movies and Olivia Wilde, despite how gorgeous and talented she is, is no exception. Recently Wilde was interview by Howard Stern where she had a chance to speak about all the misogyny going on.  The actress said (via Vulture):

The funniest thing I heard recently was I had heard for a part that I was too sophisticated. And 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.” I want to make a translation sheet for Hollywood that’s all the feedback your agents give you and what it really means… I did not [have to audition for Vinyl], because I had auditioned unsuccessfully for Wolf of Wall Street – that’s the one I was too old for. 

By the way, just how old was Olivia Wilde at that time?  A whopping 28-years-old.  Still eleven years young than DiCaprio was when he made that film. You can check out more of the Stern interview right here which includes an adorable story about how she met current husband Jason Sudekis.

I remember I was on the dance floor [at an SNL afterparty] and everybody was dancing around me and they just seemed really happy and I was just kinda standing there… He came up to me and said, “You know, whatever you’re looking for, you don’t need it,” and he just walked away… He played it really cool. When he got my number he didn’t text me for a month. I was on the hook. I was like, You guys, did Jason Sudeikis die? Because I don’t have any texts… It was kinda sweet. He literally didn’t kiss me until the fourth date, and I was like completely head over heels.
