How much is Olivia Wilde worth? $20 Million
How did Olivia Wilde earn her money and wealth?
Though Wilde is probably most known for her role on the popular TV series House, she found early success as an actress upon moving to Los Angeles. Her talents were first discovered while she was working as an assistant at a casting agency. She was given an opportunity to audition and ended up with the lead role in a Jerry Bruckheimer-produced series called Skin. That series ultimately failed, but it propelled Wilde to what would be one of her most popular roles as a bisexual teenager named Alex Kelly on the mega-hit TV drama The O.C. That was in 2004 to 2005, during which time she also appeared in films The Girl Next Door and Alpha Dog. It was just a couple years later when she would land her role in House as Dr. Thirteen Hadley, which she kept till 2012.
More acting gigs kept popping up for Wilde. She starred in Year One with Jack Black before her grand role in Tron: Legacy in 2010. In the popular Disney film, Wilde depicted a protector named Quorra and the role bolstered her status in Hollywood. The film went on to earn just over $400 million in office collections and was even nominated for an Academy Award (for best sound editing). It was shortly after her Tron: Legacy lead that Wilde decided to split from her husband of eight years, an Italian prince named Tao Ruspoli. They were married when Olivia was just 19 and parted ways without much incident, with both their assets being split equally. The divorce turned to be a blessing in disguise for Wilde, because today she’s happily married to actor Jason Sudeikis and the celebrity couple welcomed their son in April 2014.
Activism has been a huge focus for Wilde. She partnered with Artists for Peace and Justice after the 2010 earthquake that rocked Haiti. The mandate of the non-profit organization is to provide education and healthcare to the devastated nation. Olivia Wilde has also lent her voice to a documentary titled Half the Sky, which focused on the global oppression of women. She is also the co-founder of Conscious Commerce, which states its position as bringing “awareness to everyday purchases that have a transformative impact.”
With Wilde now starring in the acclaimed HBO series Vinyl, her career seems to continue on an upward trajectory. And other than being named as number one on a Maxim top 100 Hotlist in 2009, Wilde has kept her focus primarily on acting and her activism. Olivia Wilde’s net worth of $12 million is well deserved and shows that it doesn’t take multiple endorsement deals to pocket millions.
That being said, she did manage to secure one major deal—in 2011, Wilde was named as a brand ambassador for cosmetic giant Revlon.
