Olivia Wilde Responds to Controversy Over Her 'Richard Jewell' Character, Explains Her Views

Olivia Wilde is speaking out to respond to the controversy surrounding her character in the new Clint Eastwood movie Richard Jewell, which hits theaters this weekend.

The 35-year-old actress plays AJC reporter Kathy Scruggs, who is the reporter that broke the story that security guard Richard Jewell was a person of interest in the FBI’s investigation of the 1996 Atlanta bombing.

In the movie, Olivia‘s character is seen trying to get information out of an FBI agent played by Jon Hamm and headlines suggest that Kathy “traded sex for tips,” though this is not how Olivia interpreted the relationship.

Ahead of the film’s release, Olivia is speaking out on Twitter to explain how she interpreted the scene and her character, which she admits might not have been the same as the filmmakers.
