What is Olivia Wilde's Net Worth and Salary?

Olivia Wilde is an American actress and director who has a net worth of $10 million. As we detail in the section below about her breakup from Jason Sudeikis, in April 2023 Olivia estimated her total assets at $10 million. In their divorce settlement she was deeded a $4 million home in LA and then bought a new $5.9 million home, also in LA, while Jason received their former Brooklyn townhouse.

Olivia Wilde began her acting career in the early 2000s, with appearances in television series like "Skin" and "The O.C." However, it was her role as Dr. Remy "Thirteen" Hadley on the hit medical drama "House M.D." that catapulted her to fame. Her portrayal of the enigmatic and fiercely intelligent doctor earned her critical acclaim and a loyal fan base. Olivia Wilde has also been involved in numerous film projects. Some of her most notable film roles include Quorra in "Tron: Legacy," Suzy Miller in "Rush," and Devon Finestra in the television series "Vinyl." She has also lent her voice to animated projects like "BoJack Horseman" and "The Lazarus Effect."

In recent years, Wilde has expanded her creative horizons by stepping behind the camera. In 2019, she made her feature film directorial debut with the critically acclaimed coming-of-age comedy "Booksmart," which showcased her ability to bring out incredible performances from her cast while delivering a fresh and engaging story. This success has led to more directing opportunities, including the upcoming psychological thriller "Don't Worry Darling," starring Florence Pugh and Harry Styles.

In her personal life, Olivia Wilde was married to Italian filmmaker and musician Tao Ruspoli from 2003 to 2011. She later became engaged to actor and comedian Jason Sudeikis, with whom she shares two children. The couple announced their separation in 2020.

Jason Sudeikis Divorce

In April 2023, Olivia claimed in legal filings dug up by The Blast that Jason had yet to pay a single dollar in child support. The documents read:

"Jason is not currently paying child support to me, despite my requests through counsel that we agree upon an interim support amount to avoid further litigation in this matter… While Jason and I have been splitting certain expenses for the children, such as their school tuition, I have been bearing 100% of the costs of the children's care when they are with me, including, but not limited to, their food, clothing, childcare, extracurricular activities, and transportation costs."

In addition to paying child support, Olivia further requested that Jason contribute $500 thousand for her legal and accounting fees because:

"… not only due to him being in a significantly superior position than me financially, but because the vast majority of the fees I have incurred have been due to Jason and his counsel's egregious, unnecessary, and aggressive conduct."

In the filings Olivia claimed to make around $100,000 per month in income on average, has around $700,000 in bank accounts and estimated her total assets at $10 million.

At the same time, she claimed to have $107,000 in monthly expenses, the biggest chunk being $60,000 in rent/mortgages.

To settle their former real estate holdings, Olivia was deeded their former LA home in the neighborhood of Silver Lake, while Jason was deeded their former Brooklyn townhouse. Perhaps to make up for Jason receiving the Brooklyn townhouse, in July 2023 Olivia bought a $5.9 million mansion in Studio City, California.

Early Life

Olivia Wilde was born Olivia Jane Cockburn on March 10, 1984, in New York City. Her mother is "60 Minutes" journalist and producer Leslie Cockburn, and her father, Andrew, is a journalist as well. Olivia's paternal grandfather is British novelist Claud Cockburn, and she has two siblings, older sister Chloe and younger brother Charlie.

She grew up in Washington, D.C. where she attended Georgetown Day School. She then attended Phillips Academy for high school. While in high school, Olivia changed her last name, and her new surname was inspired by author Oscar Wilde. She graduated from high school in 2002, and though she was accepted to New York's Bard College, she kept deferring her enrollment in order to focus on acting. Wilde later attended Dublin's Gaiety School of Acting.


In 2003, Olivia made her television debut on the Fox series "Skin," playing Jewel Goldman in six episodes, and the following year, she appeared in the film "The Girl Next Door" and began a 13-episode stint as Alex Kelly on the Fox teen drama "The O.C." Next, Wilde appeared in the films "Conversations with Other Women" (2005), "Alpha Dog" (2006)," "Bickford Shmeckler's Cool Ideas" (2006), and "Turistas" (2006), and in 2007, she starred in the film "The Death and Life of Bobby Z" and the NBC drama "The Black Donnellys" as well as an off-Broadway production of the play "Beauty on the Vine." In September of that year, Olivia joined the cast of "House" as Remy "Thirteen" Hadley, an internist who was suffering from Huntington's disease; she appeared in 81 episodes of the medical drama. While starring on "House," Wilde made several films, including "Year One" (2009) and "Butter" (2009), and 2010's "Tron: Legacy" and 2011's "In Time" were hits at the box office, grossing $400.1 million and $174 million, respectively.

Around this time, she also co-starred with Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds in the 2011 comedy "The Change-Up," produced the documentary "Sun City Picture House" (2010), and began appearing in commercials for Revlon after the company named her a global brand ambassador. In 2013, Olivia starred in five films: "Drinking Buddies" (which she also produced), "Her," "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," "Rush," and "Third Person." In 2014, she began voicing Charlotte on the Netflix animated series "BoJack Horseman," guest-starred on IFC's "Portlandia," and appeared in the films "The Longest Week" and "Better Living Through Chemistry." Wilde then produced and starred in "Meadowland" (2015) and "A Vigilante" (2018) and appeared in the films "Love the Coopers" (2015), "Life Itself" (2018), and "Richard Jewell" (2019). She played Devon Finestra on HBO's "Vinyl" in 2016, guest-starred on the British series "Doll & Em" in 2015, and voiced Radiana on an episode of Fox's "Son of Zorn" in 2017. In 2019, Olivia earned critical acclaim and numerous awards for directing the coming-of-age comedy "Booksmart." Wilde is set to appear in the upcoming film "How It Ends," and as of this writing, she is directing, producing, and starring in the psychological horror film "Don't Worry Darling."

Personal Life

At the age of 19, Olivia married Italian filmmaker/musician Tao Ruspoli, the son of Prince Alessandro Ruspoli, on January 16, 2003. The ceremony took place on a school bus in Washington, Virginia, with just two witnesses because the marriage was meant to be a secret. Olivia and Tao divorced in September 2011.

She began a relationship with "Saturday Night Live" star Jason Sudeikis in late 2011.

The pair announced their engagement in early 2013, but never technically married. They welcomed son Otis on April 20, 2014, and daughter Daisy on October 11, 2016. Wilde and Sudeikis separated at the end of 2020. There has been much speculation that the cause of their breakup was that Olivia began having an affair with Harry Styles who at the time was acting in a movie she was directing, "Don't Worry Darling." Olivia and Harry did indeed subsequently begin dating openly.

Olivia is a citizen of both the United States and Ireland, and she has been a pescatarian, vegan, and vegetarian during different periods of her life. In 2010, Wilde was voted PETA's Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity of the year.

In 2008, Wilde campaigned for Barack Obama and was a member of the advisory council for 18, a youth voter organization. She has supported the Coalition of Immokalee Workers' Campaign for Fair Food as well as Planned Parenthood and Time's Up and has appeared in public service announcements for 18, World Down Syndrome Day, and Gucci's "Chime for Change" campaign. Olivia has served on the Board of Directors for the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California and Artists for Peace and Justice, and she took part in the Women's March in 2017 and 2018.

Divorce Settlement

In September 2023 Jason and Olivia finally reached a divorce settlement. In the final settlement, Jason agreed to pay $27,500 in monthly child support for their two children. In addition to the child support, Jason agreed to pay 25% of Olivia's childcare costs.

An earlier filing showed that Jason was on pace to earn $10.5 million in 2023 while Olivia was set to earn around $500,000.


Awards and Nominations

In 2006, Wilde won a Best Actress award for "Bickford Shmeckler's Cool Ideas" at the US Comedy Arts Festival, and she received a Rising Star Award at the 2008 Vail Film Festival.

For "Booksmart," she also won awards from the Faro Island Film Festival, GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics, Hollywood Film Awards, Mill Valley Film Festival, Online Film & Television Association, Palm Springs International Film Festival, and San Francisco International Film Festival as well as several film critic associations.

In 2015, Wilde received an Acting and Activism Award from the Women Film Critics Circle Awards, and she won a News & Documentary Emmy Award for producing the documentary "Body Team 12" in 2017. Olivia has also been nominated for six Teen Choice Awards (four for "House" and one each for "Tron" and "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone"), two Alliance of Women Film Journalists awards (Best Woman Director and Humanitarian Activism Award), two Behind the Voice Actors Awards (for "TRON: Uprising and "BoJack Horseman"), an MTV Movie Award (Best Breakout Star for "Tron"), and a Scream Award (Best Science Fiction Actress for "Tron").
