Olivia Wilde Talks RUSH, the Incredible Story it’s Based on, Spike Jonze’s HER, and More

     September 27, 2013


One of my favorite films at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival was director Ron Howard’s Rush.  Based on true events, the film takes place in the world of Formula One racing, and chronicles the 1970s rivalry between Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) and British driver James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) leading up to their intense competition in 1976.  Rush also stars Olivia Wilde and Alexandra Maria Lara.

While at TIFF, I landed a video interview with Wilde.   She talked about making Rush, how she got involved in the project, the incredible story it’s based on, the 70s clothing, and more.  In addition, Wilde talked about what it was like making Her with director Spike Jonze.  Hit the jump to watch.
