Olivia Wilde has been everywhere these days as the actor-turned-director is promoting her sophomore film “Don’t Worry Darling,” in which she also has a part. The thriller, starring Florence Pugh and Harry Styles, has received mixed reviews so far, but most of them praise her talent behind the camera. 

To be fair, not only the backstage drama has tarnished the film, but the bar was set high after her directorial debut “Booksmart” (2019). The coming-of-age comedy was well-received, even generating award buzz, and many critics (and fans) were hoping to see what Wilde would do next. 

However, while she is making her first (solid) steps as a director, Wilde also has been part of several movies as an actor, and she will be part of Babylon. After starting on TV (remember her from The OC?), she moved on to be in major productions and indie films. Here, check out some of her most celebrated movies, according to Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb.
