Olivia Wilde wants to save the mountain ox

Olivia Wilde has a new title. Sure, she is already an actress, princess (yes, princess – more on that later) and professional player of bisexual hotties. She can now add president, CEO and founder of the Save the Mountain Ox Society. Well, at least, that’s what she told GQ.

The House star earned the title, which apparently comes with an in-home jungle gym, with her response to Megan Fox’s earlier proclamation in the same magazine that Olivia was so sexy she “makes me want to strangle a mountain ox with my bare hands.” Olivia’s reaction:

I came into my trailer at House the morning after that article came out and one of our writers had done an illustration on my mirror of a mountain ox saying, ‘Save me, save me. Please, Olivia, make out with Megan!’ ” Though Wilde is a little skeptical of the recent girl-crush fad, she’s always willing to pitch in for a cause: “Of course, anything I can do to save the mountain ox, I’m happy to do.”

You see, this is how you get more people interested in animal rights. I’m getting a mental picture, I’m getting a mental picture. How about a gratuitous visual aid?

Olivia is featured in the June issue of the magazine to promote her new film Year One, a comedy about two hapless wanders (Jack Black and Michael Cera) searching for meaning of life in biblical times. Olivia plays Princess Inanna, Jack’s love interest. Now, I’ve already railed against the world of wrong that is a Jack/Olivia coupling. But once again, for those who learn visually, in what universe would Jack Black actually end up with her?

The still pictures not working for you? Need to see movement and energy to be convinced? I give you proof:


Seriously, you are a tough crowd what with your demanding more “evidence,” particularly the photographic kind. But, what can I do? I want to be thorough.

Oh, and just because I promised earlier, Olivia probably didn’t have to do too much research for her royal role. That’s because she is, in fact, an actual princess via to her marriage to Tao Ruspoli, who happens to be the son of Prince Alessandro Ruspoli, the 9th Prince of Cerveteri. So, there you go, princess.

So, anyone else feel like joining the Save the Mountain Ox Society?
