Olivia Wilde is stunningly beautiful with her dark hair and blue eyes, and she’s probably never looked better than she did in “The Change-Up.” This recent romantic comedy also starring Jason Bateman, Ryan Reynolds and Leslie Mann is definitely worth a rental or purchase. It follows the very common body-switching story idea we’ve seen many times, but Bateman and Reynolds do a great job with the characters. Wilde plays a beautiful lawyer and has some very sexy scenes in the movie.
Unfortunately, this movie commits the serious and growing crime of CGI nudity!
But if you ask me, the single greatest crime of the Digital Effects Era is more subtle, and yet also more profound. I’m talking about fake movie nudity, which first made headlines last year with Jessica Alba’s shower scene in Machete. Last night, omnipresent film beauty Olivia Wilde swung by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to chat about Cowboys & Aliens, but the conversation took a tangent when she started discussing her other upcoming release, The Change-Up. The movie features a shot of the actress nude, but Wilde explained that the offending bits were all added in post-production. “I wasn’t actually naked, but now I appear naked. They CGI’d me naked.” Apparently, the scene as filmed featured a shot of Wilde’s “pasties” — adhesives that actors use to cover up their private bits during nude scenes. The studio cheerily opted to paint in nipples, which is coincidentally exactly how my fifth-grade friends made X-Men comics more emotionally compelling. Wilde even got to pick her own nipples!
Perhaps this wasn’t planned so it can be excused to some extent. Olivia has been nude in other movies. But it’s still just so wrong! But, she also looks amazing in a thong in this film, so don’t let the CGI spoil it for you. Here’s the trailer:

The beautiful Olivia Wilde was presented with an interesting award at the Toronto International Film Festival and we have some great photos from the red carpet. IMDb presented her with their first-ever “STARmeter Award,” which is a fan-favorite award that recognizes stars who are perennial favorites on IMDb’s STARmeter chart. This is determined by the actual search behavior of IMDb’s more than 160 million monthly users worldwide. So she’s talented and hot, and of course she’s searched a lot. IMDb CEO and Founder Col Needham introduced the award and writer/director Paul Haggis. Olivia is wearing an elegant dress as she shows off her amazing legs and pretty feet in high heels.
