Olivia Wilde stars in "House" on FOX as Dr. Remy "Thirteen" Hadley. She joined the show in 2007 and has been a part of numerous life-saving storylines. "House" has won multiple Emmy Awards and Golden Globes.

On the big screen, Wilde has a cameo in Andrew Niccol's futuristic thriller "In Time." The film takes place in a world where individuals stop aging at age 25, and Wilde portrays Justin Timberlake's mother, even though in real life, she is four years younger than he is.

Additionally, Wilde will be seen in The Weinstein Company's quirky political satire "Butter," in which she portrays a competitor in an annual butter-carving event. Jennifer Garner, Hugh Jackman and Ty Burrell also star in the film. Wilde recently wrapped production on Stefan Ruzowitzky's film "Blackbird." She stars as Eric Bana's younger sister in a story about two sibling fugitives who collide with a troubled ex-con during a holiday homecoming.

Wilde recently wrapped production on Alex Kurtzman's directorial debut, "Welcome to People." The film is the story of a businessman, played by Chris Pine, whose life is rocked when he learns his late father had a secret daughter. Wilde portrays Pine's girlfriend, Hannah. Raised by parents who are award-winning journalists and documentary filmmakers, Wilde was inspired to explore the documentary field on her own as well. One of her latest projects include executive producing the simultaneously uplifting and heartbreaking short "SunCity Picture House," which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. The documentary follows a community in Haiti that rallies to build a movie theater after the disastrous 2010 earthquake.

An actress and an activist, Olivia Wilde is a modern-day Renaissance woman. She effortlessly transitions between sharing the screen with renowned actors in critically acclaimed films and television shows, and working alongside devoted doctors and teachers in Haitian refugee camps.

Wilde recently starred in Jon Favreau's sci-fi action film "Cowboys & Aliens," opposite Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig, the body-switching comedy "The Change-Up," opposite Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman, and as Jeff Bridges' trusted friend and protector Quorra in the 3D futuristic blockbuster "Tron: Legacy."

Wilde's previous film credits include a cameo, opposite Russell Crowe, in Paul Haggis' drama "The Next Three Days"; Harold Ramis's biblical-era comedy "Year One," opposite Jack Black; co-starring with Bruce Willis, Emile Hirsch and Justin Timberlake in Universal Pictures' "Alpha Dog" based on the true story of Jesse James Hollywood; Bickford Shmeckler's "Cool Ideas," for which she won Best Actress at the Aspen Film Festival; and "Conversations with Other Women," opposite Helena Bonham Carter and Aaron Eckhart. Additionally, Wilde starred in and produced "Fix," the story of documentary filmmakers who race all over California to get help for a relative. "Fix" opened at the 2008 Slamdance Film Festival and was released in New York in November 2009.

Her previous television roles include co-starring in the drama "The Black Donnellys," created by Paul Haggis. Her television breakout role was in the Jerry Bruckheimer produced FOX series "Skin," and she is also well known for her recurring role as Alex Kelly on the critically acclaimed FOX series "The O.C." On stage, Wilde headlined "Beauty on the Vine" in the Epic Theatre Center's off-Broadway production in 2007.

Wilde is a board member of Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ) and sits on the foundation board of the ACLU of Southern California. She recently teamed up with APJ board members Barbara Burchfield and Bryn Mooser to launch a new chapter of the organization named Young Artists for Peace and Justice (YAPJ). YAPJ is dedicated to creating a movement in American high schools and colleges to contribute to the end of poverty by supporting education in the developing world.

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.

Wilde currently lives in Los Angeles.
