Exclusive: Olivia Wilde Gives Advice To Engaged Girls



2014 is going to be a big year for Olivia Wilde. The actress will be turning the big 3-0 in March, and more than likely walking down the aisle with her fiancé funnyman Jason Sudeikis.

In preparation, the actress wrote a hilarious piece in Glamour magazine about what to do and not to do before turning 30.

“I was so happy that that piece was read and loved by so many women and men”, gushed Wilde. “But that’s all because I’ve gotten great advice from friends as they’ve grown ahead of me.”

So what do’s and don’t’s does Wilde have for engaged girls like herself? HipHollywood sat down with the actress for her latest film Rush and found out.

“Don’t put so much pressure on yourself,” explained Wilde, who was wearing a “J” necklace in honor of fiancé Jason. “It’s a really romantic thing to do. An optimistic romantic thing to do to get married. I guess just to try and have fun.”

Wilde will next be seen in Ron Howard’s Rush in theaters September 27.


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
