There are a lot of Olivias in Hollywood these days, and while many of them are rising stars in movies and television, it’s still difficult for the novice to differentiate between all the Olivia’s. There’s the one on “The Daily Show,” the one in Tron, the one in Juno, and even the one that used to be in “The Wonder Years” who looks like Melissa George.
It’s all very confusing. And that’s why we here at Pajiba want to help you out with this very confusing matter by providing our Primer in Olivias. So, the next time someone says, “Wow! Olivia Wilde is hotter than two rats fucking in a wool sock,” you can refer to this post to find out if she’s the Olivia from Tron or the teacher in Rushmore.
