The Hilarious Encounter Olivia Wilde Had With Mick Jagger As A Child

Olivia Wilde has graced countless covers in her career as an actor and remains as fresh-faced as ever. Matthew Libatique, who worked alongside Wilde as the cinematographer of "Don't Worry Darling," paid her an extravagant compliment when he gushed, "The woman hasn't aged." He also told Vogue, "She's eternally youthful." Of course, Wilde has two young children, Otis and Daisy, who also help to keep her on her toes as she rediscovers childhood through their eyes. After Otis was born, she told People that having a child gave her a new perspective. She said, "I take my place in the world a little bit more seriously being a mother ... I hope I can tell stories that somehow benefit the world that Otis will grow up in."

Wilde grew up in a family of wordsmiths, so she knows a little about storytelling and creativity. Per The Guardian, her grandfather was a journalist, a career that two of her uncles also pursued. Closer to home, her dad makes documentaries while her mother is a TV producer. She revealed, "My mother was an anomaly ... a successful journalist and a devoted mother." As such, "It allowed my siblings and I the chance to believe we were capable of the same." And with people like Christopher Hitchens or Salman Rushdie often visiting their family, her parents encouraged their offspring's creativity with a "never be boring" house rule. A young Wilde seemingly took the mantra seriously.

A young Olivia Wilde tried to boss Mick Jagger around

Olivia Wilde's journalist parents kept some exciting company. Per GQ, Wilde's mother, Leslie Cockburn, recalled, "Olivia was exposed to a lot of very clever people when she was little." In fact, the actor shared a story about how her folks had the Rolling Stones' frontman over for dinner. According to the Daily Mail, her parents and the singer would discuss political issues. Wilde related, per The Guardian, "I actually met Mick Jagger as a child." She continued, "It's become a family joke because I ordered him to get out of my chair at the dinner table and he told me to go to bed." Later, Wilde would work on a series called "Vinyl" with Jagger, who produced it. When asked if she ever told him the story about their first meeting, she replied, "Noooo, I didn't dare. He won't remember some small child at a dinner party in the 80s."

Cockburn also shared a story about another time Jagger and Wilde clashed. Apparently, the young Wilde had been caught eavesdropping. Richard Holbrooke and Mick Jagger were chatting, and Wilde decided to listen in on their conversation. Jagger turned around, saw her, and told her to go to bed. Cockburn added, per GQ, "How many girls were told to go to bed by Mick Jagger?" It seems as if Wilde had the privilege twice over.

Olivia Wilde was 'obsessed' with the Rolling Stones

Olivia Wilde may have had a cheeky exchange with Mick Jagger as a young child, but things changed as she got older. She told Collider, "Mick Jagger has been an idol of mine since I was 10 years old." Wilde recalled going to some Rolling Stones concerts with her parents and how they would bond over their shared experience. Wilde shared, via Times of India, "When I was 12 years old I was completely obsessed with the Rolling Stones."

Wilde then worked with Jagger on the series "Vinyl." While she admired him as a child for his musical genius, she had a different experience as an adult. Per Collider, Wilde called Jagger a "brilliant bad-*ss" and said that he had "produced some great films and brought us stories about the music industry that have changed the way we think about how music is made." The actor also revealed that his physical presence seemed to have an impact on her. Wilde shared, "I'm completely filled with awe when he (Jagger) is around. Sometimes, I just kind of turn away and try not to say anything. What he has created has always meant so much to me." Wilde and Jagger may have had a rocky start to their relationship, but it seems as if she quickly forgave him for putting her to bed.
