LOS ANGELES – The Hottest Woman in the World Olivia Wilde Opens up About What Really Happens in Filming a Sex Scene | Melissa Rycroft Defends Carrie Prejean, Julianne Hough Talks Marriage and Speidi Get Scared? | Stranger Grabs Tori Spelling’s Belly
Olivia Wilde burst onto our small screens several years ago as Mischa Barton’s lesbian love interest in "The O.C", but the 25-year-old "House" hottie has aroused even more interest since locking lips with co-star Omar Epps.
"I have had young girls chase me since that kiss aired to ask me if he's a good kisser," Wilde admitted in a recent interview. "People go crazy."
And the small-screen hook-up has since gotten much steamier, but it seems their love scenes are anything but lovely.
"There is always a particularly large and hairy man holding a boom wearing a crop top. I don’t know if they’re like ‘ooh sex scene where’s my crop top because I need to hover above Olivia, make sure my hairy belly is somewhere in the vicinity of her face’," she said with a laugh. "People imagine it’s this really glamorous and sexy thing, but I always laugh because in reality there are 50 people in the room. You are stopping and starting. There is someone yelling like ‘can you move your hand, can you just put your shoulder down, ok good, more more …’"
But it was those not-so-intimate scenes that really caught the eye of the men at Maxim magazine and thus it was announced this week that Wilde topped their annual "Hot 100" for 2009. And true to her name, this girl is a wild one.
"I got a tattoo above my a** when I was 13," she told Tarts, adding that it was much to her grandma’s displeasure.
Wilde also shaved her head in the seventh grade and had multiple piercings by the ripe ol’ age of 11 -- but for this brunette beauty, whose "House" character floats between females and males, pushing boundaries is what keeps her motivated.
"Everyone keeps saying to me, do you only play gay? Is that your thing? Which is really funny," Wilde added. "I correct them and say this is my second time playing a bisexual character and it's great, it's a challenge. I welcome a challenge. I've played ten straight people, but no one cares about that."
While Wilde didn’t grace us with her number one presence, hundreds of other Hollywood hotties (including Vanessa Minnillo, Audrina Patridge, Jordana Brewster and Shannon Elizabeth ) made their way into Maxim magazine’s annual bash to celebrate the Hot 100 issue at the Santa Monica Barker Hangar on Wednesday evening.
So even though most of #99 Melissa Rycroft’s Tinseltown associates have made their feelings about controversial Miss California Carrie Prejean pretty clear over recent weeks, the 'DWTS' contestant thought it was time to give the girl some sympathy.
"Just by getting a glimpse into this lifestyle, I understand what happens when you say something and then all of sudden it's everywhere and everything you do is scrutinized," Rycroft told Tarts. "She said her opinion and people agree with it or people don't agree with it, but it just seems to have opened up a whole other can of worms that we don't need right now."
"I read that I was doing Playboy," she said. "My father would kill me, not only would I never do it, my father would never look at me!"
Rycroft’ fellow ballroom babe Julianne Hough (who was engaged to dancer Zach Wilson once before) couldn’t keep her hands off new beau Chuck Wicks and hinted that wedding bells could well be on the way.
"He's a sweetheart. It's so great we have the best relationship, we use the phones and anytime we have a day off, we fly to where the other person is and it's great," the 20-year-old gushed. "We always go forward with the intention (to get married) because I'm not going to date anyone where it's like, this is a lost cause!"
Speaking of fiances, or more appropriately ex-fiances, Ross McCall was slapped with an emotional curveball as he picked up a copy of the magazine while at the Stoli VIP table to discover his former fiance Jennifer Love-Hewitt had made the number ten spot.
"Yeah, I guess she still does look pretty hot," he said to his buddies after a moment’s hesitation before quickly closing the magazine.
And we really do have to wonder what the world is coming too when Spencer Pratt and new wife Heidi Pratt (formerly Montag) have to go around with not one, but two big and burly security guards who kept them under tight protection from the flocks of evil fans.
Oh, and of course the night would not have been complete without at least one Tinseltown trooper taking in a little too much of the free booze. This year’s award winner was Amanda Bynes who looked worse-for-wear as she stumbled and slurred around, clutching onto a surprised sober guy as she waited in the valet. Let’s just hope the "Hairspray" starlet wasn’t driving.
Tori Spelling ’s itty bitty body has raised a lot of eyebrows lately, but it seems the "90210" starlet had to deal with some strange strangers after giving birth to her second child last year.
"After I'd given birth to Stella, some woman at the market grabbed my belly and asked when I was due. When she had the flab in her hand, she realized her mistake," Spelling told the June/July issue of Cookie magazine. "And the first time I went out after I had Liam, the paparazzi were around and I remember trying to hold my stomach in, even though my muscles were shot to hell, because it's not like they want a story, "Look at the happy couple, they just had a baby" they want, "Do you see her stomach? We thought she already had the baby." But I always say the weeklies build you up to tear you down. It's a funny cycle. The week before they were asking, "Is she too thin?" they showed a picture of me in a bikini on the beach saying I looked great."
And just as Spelling wasn’t happy about the woman that touched her belly post-pregnancy, she was uncomfortable with it during her pregnancies too.
"During both pregnancies, people touched my belly a lot. I would never do that to a pregnant woman—it's a personal thing. And if I did, I'd say, "Your belly is so cute, can I touch it?" But when fans do it, I couldn't say, "Please don't touch," because then it would be "What a bitch!" At a certain point, I just decided that [my second baby] Stella was getting a lot of love in there," she added.
