Olivia Wilde says she made journalists cry in Japan
Olivia Wilde says that she made two journalists cry while promoting "TRON: Legacy" in Japan.
The movie is the sequel to a 1982 film and is set for release on Friday. Wilde's character, a warrior, helps computer programmer Kevin Flynn, played by Jeff Bridges, and his son, portrayed by Garret Hedlund, try to escape from the patriarch's computer code, where the elder Flynn has been trapped for 20 years.
"I like the Japanese press," Wilde said on a recent episode of the ABC late-night talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!". "They're very enthusiastic. Some of them would wear 'TRON' suits to the interviews. We had quite a few of those. We had two girls who came in full suits like my character in the movie and started weeping at the end of the interview, enthusiastically. They were just so moved by the interview."
Wilde is considered by many to be a sex symbol, following roles on "The O.C." and "House M.D.". Wilde told OnTheRedCarpet.com, while speaking about her "TRON: Legacy" character, that it is not enough to be good looking to advance in Hollywood.
"There are a lot of pretty girls in this town," she said. "It's not enough to be good-looking and that fades so quickly. I think that talent prevails. The system works. If you work hard, you will get somewhere. I've worked very, very hard and now I've had the chance to work with so many smart people that have just made me better."
