One of the many perks of authoring The Satanic Verses and The Moor’s Last Sigh is the requisite personal friendship with Olivia Wilde, best known for her work in Tron: Legacy 3D and The O.C., on which she played a lesbian during a brief but memorable story arc in late 2005. The author and the actress discussed foreign policy at Da Silvano last week, because “he’s one of her parents’ best friends,” a rep said.
Recently single “Tron: Legacy” beauty Olivia Wilde was spotted dining with Salman Rushdie at a table for two at Da Silvano the other night. But while some onlookers thought it was a date, don’t let your imagination run wild. “He’s one of her parents’ best friends,” said a rep for Wilde, whose love life has been speculated about wildly since she filed for divorce in February from Tao Ruspoli. And man-about-town Rushdie has been linked to a laundry list of long-legged lovelies.
