Olivia Wilde Was Considered 'Too Old' for 'Wolf of Wall Street'

Olivia Wilde carries a shopping bag while hanging out with her Vinyl co-star Bobby Cannavale on Wednesday afternoon (March 16) in New York City.

The 32-year-old actress recently stopped by The Howard Stern Show where she revealed she was considered “too old” to star in 2013′s Wolf of Wall Street alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.

“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,” Olivia said. “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.”

Olivia later took to Twitter to add, “My point about not being cast in Wolf o W-Street was that we have to trust the process because I ended up with my dream job on Vinyl…And my interview went on to say that Margot Robbie crushed that role like a sexy ninja and I LOVED her in it.💥⚡️💥”

    She can’t act. AT ALL. Bobby Cannavale, on the other hand, is an acting genius

  • VanityInsecurity

    Margot Robbie can act & has a youthful glow to her.. unfortunately Olivia does not.

  • Baseliner

    more like she sucks as an actress and is trying to use “sexism” as an excuse.

  • Silly People

    Her dream job is Vinyl? lol That show is underwhelming to say the least. He really doesn’t look happy about these pictures.

  • FerCat

    Pretty but not memorable actress.

  • Kaitlyn

    What a ridiculous story. Casting looks more at head shots than they do birth certificates.

    Rachel McAdams played a 17yr old in Mean Girls at age 27
    Amy Adams played a naive young princess in Enchanted at age 33
    Amy Adams also plays Lois Lane at age 41 with 32yr old Hendry Cavill
    Catherine Zeta Jones played a 32yr old for 15 whole years
    Helen Mirren at age 70 played the 112yr old Queen Elizabeth

    If Olivia Wilde didn’t get cast in Wolf of Wall Street then telling her “it’s your age” was them being polite.

  • Thomas Fisher

    Excuse? What excuse? She got her current gig on Vinyl because of that SAME audition she was referred “too old”, because Martin Scorsese liked it so much.

    And she said she had no hard feelings about and praiusedRobbie who got the role.

  • Thomas Fisher

    Ah, so that’s why Martin Scorsese HANDPICKED her for Vinyl (because he was impressed with her in the same audition).

  • Thomas Fisher

    Watch Meadowland or Drinking Buddies before you write such moronic comments.

  • VanityInsecurity

    Hey moron, I have my opinion you have yours now stfu.

  • Dream Girl

    Margot Robbie was the best choice, sorry Olivia.
