Olivia Wilde is an American actress best known for her television roles as Alex Kelly in The O.C. (2004-2005), as Jenny Reilly in The Black Donnellys (2007), and as Thirteen in House, from 2007-2012.

Equally successful in film and television, Wilde has starred in an array of roles. She can be seen as the female lead in the futuristic thriller TRON: Legacy opposite Jeff Bridges. The film, directed by Joseph Kosinski, was released in December 2010.

Wilde also appeared in Paul Haggis' drama The Next Three Days starring Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks. Based on the French film Pour Elle, it is centered upon a couple whose life is turned upside down when the wife is accused of murder.

Wilde also starred as the female lead in the fantasy action film Cowboys & Aliens opposite Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford. Both films were released in 2011.

Wilde was seen opposite Jack Black in Harold Ramis' biblical-era comedy Year One produced by Ramis, Judd Apatow and Owen Wilson.

Additionally, she produced and starred in Fix, the story of documentary filmmakers who race all over California to get help for a relative. The film opened at the 2008 Slamdance Film Festival and was released in New York in November 2009.

Wilde previously co-starred opposite Bruce Willis, Emile Hirsch and Justin Timberlake in Alpha Dog, based on the true story of Jesse James Hollywood.

She has appeared in the independent features Bickford Schmeckler's Cool Ideas, in which she won Best Actress at the Aspen Film Festival, as well as Conversations with Other Women opposite Helena Bonham Carter and Aaron Eckhart, which received glowing reviews at the Telluride Film Festival.

On stage, Wilde starred in Epic Theatre Center's Off-Broadway production of Beauty on the Vine in 2007.

On television, she co-starred in the drama The Black Donnellys, created by Paul Haggis. Her television breakout role was in the FOX series Skin, but she is perhaps better known for her recurring role on the critically acclaimed series The O.C.

Wilde was among the early supporters of President Barack Obama, hitting the campaign trail during the primary season. She is also a longtime advocate of PowerUp Gambia, a nonprofit organization that seeks to create medical clinics in rural Africa using solar panels to supplement electricity.
