Olivia Wilde, who stars as Quorra in the upcoming new film Tron: Legacy (due out in theaters next month), is featured in the new issue of Details magazine. In her interview with the mag, Wilde describes Quorra as “Joan of Arc but with the hair of Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs” which sounds like a pretty damn cool description to me. Here is one of Olivia’s racier photos from her Details photospread along with some excerpts from her Details interview:
Wilde, 26, who plays the terminally ill Dr. Remy “Thirteen” Hadley on House, is having a breakout year on the big screen, with roles in the Paul Haggis-directed crime thriller The Next Three Days and the hotly anticipated CGI spectacle Tron: Legacy. In the 1982 original, Jeff Bridges gets sucked inside a computer and engages in a cheesy, futuristic Ultimate Frisbee-meets-Rollerball battle. In this December’s reboot, Bridges returns (sporting a Dude-like beard), only this time there are way cooler special effects, a killer Daft Punk soundtrack, and a secret weapon: Wilde as the cybervixen guide Quorra. The role required that she squeeze into a skintight rubber suit woven out of neoprene and something called electroluminescent lamps. “It was so beautiful that I didn’t need to play the character sexy,” she says. The first time she laid eyes on the get-up, however, she freaked: “I saw the boobs on the suit and I said, ‘Oh, hell no. I’m doing kicks and backflips in this thing?’ ” She describes Quorra as a kind of warrior ninja: “We modeled the character on Joan of Arc but with the hair of Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. But still a total badass.”
From what I understand, Olivia’s role in Tron: Legacy is much more action-oriented rather than sexy. For the sexy, she lets her Details magazine photos do the talking for her. After the jump, check out the uncensored NSFW image above along with a few others from her photospread …
She looks good, y’all … don’t she? While I do not know much about Olivia’s work up until now, I’m certain that her role in Tron: Legacy will put her on a whole new level. This Details interview is nice and all but I think I’d like to know more about her. Hopefully we’ll be hearing more from Olivia Wilde in the weeks and months to come.
