Some memories deserve to be permanent, and for some reason, Olivia Wilde wants her selfie with actress Jennifer Coolidge forever etched in her memory.
The “Don’t Worry Darling” director, who ended her romance with Harry Styles, proved that she is just like the masses who can’t help but fan girl over the legend that is Coolidge.
Recently, Wilde’s fangirling paid off as she and Coolidge spent time together, and they had that moment captured. In excitement, Wilde shared that she wants the pic memorialized, possibly hinting that the moment was the start of something iconic.
Olivia Wilde Wants A Tattoo Of First Picture With Jennifer Coolidge
The “Lazarus Effect” actress shared a selfie on her Instagram, capturing her and the “Legally Blonde” actress with a playful pout. Although the image was captured at night, the pair looked charming!
The “Tron Legacy” actress’ hair fell to her shoulders while Coolidge’s tresses were styled in her signature ponytail. Their faces appeared super glammed and their friendly chemistry was undeniable.
Wilde expressed her intention to memorialize the picture in the post’s caption. “Moving this pic to the grid and then to a chest tattoo most likely,” the 39-year-old actress wrote.
Within minutes of Wilde making the post, it garnered attention from fans who were excited to see the duo. One follower supported Wilde’s intention commenting, “Do it!!!” while another gushed, “fav pic of Oscar’s 23.” One ardent fan remarked, “When two great worlds collide,” with another adding, “Gorgeousnessss.”
An admirer dropped several dolphin emojis signifying Coolidge’s dream role of acting as a dolphin. The above-mentioned snap was captured as the pair attended the W Magazine and Saint Laurent Directors Dinner. Per reports, the 39-year-old actress looked breathtaking in an all-black ensemble as she attended the event.
The movie director posed alongside Coolidge, who looked stunning in her form-fitting black midi dress with a faux fur detail accessorizing her look with a red heart-shaped clutch. The duo was joined by actress Salma Hayek who also participated in the event, on the red carpet.
Wilde Wants To Make Coolidge’s Dream Role Come Through
With the two actresses linking up, it could be that they’re working together to fulfill Coolidge’s dream role. Fans would recall that the “Shotgun Wedding” star revealed her dream role was playing a dolphin on screen.
As reported, the “American Pie” actress made the revelation to Access Hollywood’s Zuri Hall at the 2023 Golden Globes, saying, “I’ve always wanted to play a dolphin.” And she didn’t mean the animated dolphin, but the real-life dolphin.
Shortly after the revelation, Wilde declared in an Instagram Story upload that she would actualize the dream. “I WILL MAKE THIS HAPPEN,” the “Don’t Worry Darling” director assured Coolidge.
“The Wild Lotus” actress then responded to Wilde’s sweet promise while chatting about her film “Shotgun Wedding.” The 61-year-old actress was overwhelmed with love as she reacted to Wilde’s commitment. “I love her! I love her. I can’t believe it, and I believe she can make it happen,” Coolidge gushed.
The “Don’t Worry Darling” Director Allegedly Neglected Her Family During Her Romance With Harry Styles
While the “Booksmart” actress plans on doing something big with Coolidge, she and her ex-husband, Jason Sudeikis, are being sued by their former nanny, Ericka Genaro.
In legal documents obtained by The Blast, the nanny sued the estranged couple for essentially giving her too many household duties when she worked for them.
The former couple employed Genaro from 2018 to 2021, and according to her, Wilde abandoned the household in 2020 when she began her relationship with Styles. Genaro claimed that due to the actress’ neglect, the pressure was put on her to fill in for Wilde as a mother figure.
Additionally, the ex-nanny alleged that she had the extra burden of being the shoulder for Sudeikis to cry on. She stated that she had to stay past her working hours for him to vent and talk about his challenges. Genaro pointed out that this caused her a lot of stress and anxiety, which drained her.
The stress from the workload kept piling up, and a medical professional advised her to quit working immediately. Instead, she took a three-day break, which prompted Sudeikis to fire her on the spot. Genaro claimed her employment was wrongfully terminated and alleged the A-list actors violated several employment laws in California.
In the suit, Genaro claimed damages under FEHA.
