Olivia Wilde Proves You Can Be A Great Writer With A Great ‘Tush’

I dunno about you, but I know every time I meet a super-attractive working professional, the first question out of my mouth is, “But your ass is so fine…why did you even bother getting a job?” Oh, wait. I don’t do that, because that’s insane, as well as super creepy. And yet, GQ magazine’s movie critic Tom Carson is catching some well-deserved heat for his comments on Olivia Wilde’s performance in her new film Third Person, where she stars opposite Liam Neeson. [Ed. note: GQ has since apologized for the remarks via Twitter, and Olivia acknowledged via retweet.] She plays a writer, which inspired enough of a “Huh? Whaaaaaat?” reaction from GQ writer Tom Carson to pen this comment:

She’s supposed to be a writer too, but your belief in that won’t outlast Wilde scampering naked through hotel corridors once Neeson playfully locks her out of his room. With that tush, who’d need to be literate? Who’d want to?

Fun fact: Olivia Wilde is an actual writer—she doesn’t just play one on TV/film. Her parents are journalists. She grew up in an extremely literate—as well as literary—household. (And for those counting, they don’t mean the same thing. Surely, Mr. Carson, you didn’t mean to imply that if you’ve got a great caboose, you shouldn’t bother learning to read and write, right?) Being smart and being hot are not mutually exclusive. So, Olivia? Hey girl. Just wanted to say that we love your writing. Love your tush, too. But love your brains even more.
