You’re probably wondering: does Olivia Wilde smoke weed? Let’s figure out if this former star of HBO’s rock-and-roll-themed show Vinyl and former network actress of House would rather puff it or pass it.
Who Is Olivia Wilde?
Born in New York City on March 10, 1984, Wilde spent her childhood in the Georgetown area of Washington, D.C. Her parents were prominent in the local high-end social scene, which led the future actress to have some bizarre family connections. For example, noted scholar Christopher Hitchens was once her babysitter, and her family routinely hosted parties for the likes of Mick Jagger and Richard Holbrooke.
Wilde first gained notoriety in the early aughts for her turn as Alex, a bisexual record store owner whose relationship with Mischa Barton’s character Marissa Cooper in the second season of The O.C. garnered praise. Soon after that, the actor landed the role of Dr. Remy “Thirteen” Hadley in the multiple award-winning medical drama House in 2007. Her role as a diagnostician with an enigmatic, mysterious personality made her a household name. (No pun intended, we promise.)
During her tenure on the show, Wilde also began to make her name on the big screen, appearing in her first starring cinematic role in Cowboys & Aliens opposite Daniel Craig in 2011. Since then, other memorable parts have included roles in comedies like Drinking Buddies and dramas like the critical darling Her. Most recently, Wilde appeared opposite Bobby Cannavale in HBO’s historical rock ‘n’ roll drama Vinyl.
But let’s get back to the question at hand: does Olivia Wilde smoke weed?
Puff or Pass?
Unfortunately, there’s no definitive evidence as to whether Olivia Wilde enjoys a midnight (or afternoon, or morning) toke. Despite this, we can infer Wilde is definitely a fan of legalization—as per her partner, comedian Jason Sudeikis.
During a 2016 appearance on Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen asked Sudeikis about possible future nuptials. Sudeikis, who has been partnered with Wilde since 2011, promptly replied with a rejoinder fit for any cannabis consumer.
“We won’t get married until weed is legal in every state,” Sudeikis declared at the time. (For the record, Sudeikis and Wilde announced their engagement soon after the segment aired, but have yet to officially wed.)
Considering we also know Sudeikis is a fan of the ganj—or at least has starred in movies involving it—you can jump to your own educated conclusions from there.
Oh, and before you bring this up: Olivia Wilde is also known as a spokesperson for the media company RYOT, which also bears the same name as a company who produces weed paraphernalia. Believe us when we tell you: not the same thing.
Final Hit: Does Olivia Wilde Smoke Weed?
So, does Olivia Wilde smoke weed? In the end, it looks like we can’t say for sure. Regardless, it seems like she’s definitely for cannabis legalization, which is pretty much the next best thing. And hey, Olivia: if you ever want to let us know if you’d puff or pass, hit us up.
