Wilde wants world domination

Olivia Wilde has joked she should team up with Emma Watson to conquer the universe.

The star reveals that if she wasn't an actress she'd be working at a Chicago Brewery, much like her character in the new movie Drinking Buddies.

Olivia also let fans in on her plans for world domination with Harry Potter star Emma, when she took part in a Reddit Q and A.

"Maybe we should join forces and take over the universe," she laughed.

Olivia shot to fame playing bisexual bartender Alex in US TV show The O.C.

It's a role she took seriously and it's something she is still hugely proud of.

"Nothing gives me more pride than hearing gay and bisexual men and women tell me they were helped in some way by my roles on television," she said.

"That's a true honour. It is the responsibility of media to accurately reflect society."

Constantly referring to her fans as "dude", Olivia insists that when she isn't in front of the camera, her life is no different from any else's.

But the trappings of fame sometimes strike at inconvenient times.

"I read, play games with friends, smother my dog with love, karaoke, eat, drink, play, eat, and dance. Every day I think, 'What have I done? My life will never be simple again,'" she explained. "Usually when someone is trying to take a pic of me scooping dog poop. Weird world!"

Olivia is also a keen tennis fan and has been spotted enjoying the US Open with her fiancé, actor Jason Sudeikis.
