In the outrageous new comedy Butter (in theaters Oct. 5), Olivia Wilde delivers big laughs as a tattooed stripper with dirty dance moves and an even dirtier mouth. So after witnessing her first attempt at comedy, iVillage had to ask the actress who’s funnier: she or her boyfriend, Saturday Night Live star Jason Sudeikis?
“He is!” replied Wilde, who started dating Sudeikis in December. “He keeps me laughing…Funny guys are always the best, and I think it works on all us girls.”
The 28-year-old actress also dished to iVillage about how her trainer helped her perfect her stripper routine. “She tried to teach me things at the local strip club,” she recalls. “And then I hung out with the real strippers there, and they were all so sweet. I’m really genuinely impressed by their skills.”
