Olivia Wilde is ‘lucky’ Revlon ambassador

Olivia Wilde feels “lucky” to be chosen as an ambassador for Revlon and its charity cause for cancer.

The actress is a spokeswoman for the beauty giant and is set to join the EIF Revlon Run/Walks in New York and Los Angeles to raise money for cancer. The event has raised $65 million for cancer research, treatment, counselling and outreach since 1994.

Olivia and co-spokeswoman Emma Stone are both getting on board for the event, which Olivia is very proud of.

“I know she feels, like I do, really lucky to be ambassadors for a company that takes this so seriously,” Olivia told People.

“We were thrilled from the beginning that we would be able to do this event together.”

The stunning star also joked that she would “probably be walking” the event in New York City on May 5.

Olivia added that she feels privileged to be part of the worthy cause.

“You’d be hard-pressed to find a friend who doesn’t have a connection to cancer in their family,” she said. “I certainly do. I’m really proud to represent that person as I do the run/walk this year in New York — and I really encourage everyone to come out and join me.”

Olivia joined Revlon as she wanted to work for a company that supports charities. The actress admits she also enjoys playing with the make-up.

“It’s all about embracing who you are, and having fun with beauty, not about creating a mask,” she said. “I really wanted to be a part of something that had a positive slant on that whole concept [of beauty].

“It means much more for me than being a model for their ads.”

    Treasure trove of British newsreels reveals Top Gear's ancestors

    Long after television grew to dominate American and British homes, newsreel producer British Pathé kept at it, documenting the news of the day until finally ceasing production of new short films in 1970 after 60 years of effort. Last week, all of British Pathé's 85,000 films were put online — including dozens of fascinating, rare and often weird car films that resemble nothing so much as a jet-age Top Gear.

    Nissan tests self-cleaning paint that could make car washes obsolete

    During this vile, never-ending winter, motorists had three options to keep their cars clean: Shell out on regular car washes; slave away in the cold, wind and snow washing it yourself, or screw it and just drive a dirty car. I, like many, chose the last option. But if only I'd been able to test Nissan's self-cleaning car, all my troubles would have washed away.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers. The developed world evolved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy to the service age, then to the knowledge economy in the late 1990s and 2000s marked by breakthroughs in technological innovations and competition for innovation with new products and processes that develop from the research community. According to The Work Foundation, the knowledge economy is driven by the demand for higher value added goods and services created by more sophisticated, more discerning, and better educated consumers and ...
