Dive In


This is for me?

That’s what actor/director Olivia Wilde asked the person who handed her an envelope—while she was speaking on stage at the CinemaCon in Las Vegas. She was likely even more surprised when she opened it—since it contained child custody papers served by her ex Jason Sudeikis. He claims to have had “no prior knowledge” of this unprecedented event—which sabotaged Wilde’s proud moment as she unveiled the trailer of her new film ‘Don’t Worry Darling.’ Hmm. 


Stuff to check out: On the latest episode of the splainer podcast ‘Press Decode’, the splainer team looks at the demolition derby that is underway across the country—plus why Bollywood is nervous about the rise of South Indian movies—which is very on-point given our quote today. Be sure to head over to the IVM website, Spotify or Apple Podcasts to listen to it.
