Olivia Wilde


Sure she's been linked to everyone from Ryan Gosling to Bradley Cooper Justin Timberlake -- and yeah, her ex-husband is freaking royalty -- but as Olivia Wilde recently opened up to Marie Clairemagazine, when it comes to dating, "I'm hopeless at it."

Total shenanigans.

Or is it?

Because really, how much of a catch could a super-hot megastar be if she keeps a cardboard cut-out of a Jonas Brother by her bedside?

You read that correctly -- though in all fairness to Wilde (and, we suppose, the Jonas Brothers), that business of sleeping with life-sized JoBros pin-ups is all part of an ongoing prank.

As Wilde revealed on a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the last owners of her L.A. home were none other than Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas.

And when Wilde moved in, she found the sorts of things you'd obviously expect to be found in a house previously occupied by teenage boys...life-size cut-outs of themselves.

Apparently Wilde discovered the thing in the garage. "I didn't even have to pay extra. So now they live in the house!" she joked on Kimmel -- though she explains it feels a little as though her house is being "haunted" by the three wee pop stars.

(Attention Crazy JoBros fans: Despite claims of "hauntings," The Jonas Brothers are still very much alive.)

"Sometimes I wake up, and my roommate has placed one standing over me," said Wilde.

(Incidentally, the "one" in question is Joe.)

"Is it comforting knowing there's a cardboard virgin watching over you at all times?" Kimmel asked.

"Yes, it is comforting. We blame the Jonas Brothers for the lack of action in our house," Wilde shot back. "It's the 'No Sex Hex,' Jimmy! Can't do anything about it."

With all the work Wilde has ahead of her, though, you'd think she'd hardly have the time to take a guy home (and explain all the Jonas paraphernalia). Blockbuster Cowboys & Aliens opens this Friday, followed by the comedy The Change-Upnext week -- and she's attached to a half dozen movies scheduled to appear over the next year, including one project just confirmed today by E! News.

According to the outlet, Wilde revealed she's set to play Linda Lovelace in an upcoming movie about the Deep Throatporn star directed by Oscar-winners Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. (Wilde's Lovelace project is not to be confused with the one Lindsay Lohan was reportedly involved with, a film now attached to Watchmen star Malin Ackerman.)

"It would be a tremendous honour," Wilde said of the role last night at a Nylon magazine party in West Hollywood. "It's such a cool role. She was a fascinating woman -- with where she came from to Deep Throatto then working with Gloria Steinem and Nora Ephron. It's really fascinating."
