Olivia Wilde: Critical Darling - Wilde has become an in-demand actress in Hollywood, appearing in well-reviewed hits like "Her" and "Drinking Buddies." 

How Old is Too Old in Hollywood?
It goes without saying that Margot Robbie's saucy portrayal of Naomi Lapaglia in The Wolf of Wall Street successfully launched the Australian actress into Hollywood's spotlight. Only 22 years old at the time, Margot was praised by critics for her 'authentic' Brooklyn accent and ability to go toe-to-toe with Oscar winner Leo DiCaprio. But what if she was never cast? Vinyl star and smokeshow Olivia Wilde stopped by The Howard Stern Show where the radio host was able to pull some interesting information from the 32-year old actress regarding casting for the 2013 Scorcese film:

"I had heard for a part that I was 'too sophisticated,'" Wilde said. "I'd found out later that they'd actually said 'old.' … I did not [audition for Vinyl] because I had auditioned unsuccessfully for The Wolf Of Wall Street. That's the one I was 'too old' for."

Listen to the starlet sound off on age in Hollywood and ponder why anyone in their right mind would ever think it's a good idea to turn down this gorgeous woman. 

Three Beers for Zoe Kravitz
The Allegiant star (and daughter to rocker Lenny Kravitz) stopped by The Tonight Show to play a casual game of Inflatable Flip Cup with the late night host. Despite never attending college, chugging beer seems to be a regular thing for Kravitz, as she dominates Fallon in the 6-cup game while wearing a red, inflatable sumo suit. And this isn't the first time she's come out victorious — she nabbed the crown of Giant Beer Pong Queen during her previous Tonight Show appearance. Who said you need an education to be successful?

Rihanna and Drake Know How to 'Work'
Bad girl RiRi's Anti tour is in full swing, and the star has already begun to pull out all the stops for her sold-out shows. During a stop over in Miami, the 28-year old dragged Drake on stage for a surprise performance of their hit song, 'Work,' and to no surprise, fans went craaaaaazy. The live performance might not have been as hot as their music video, but the connection between the two in-person is clearly just as undeniable.
