    a man that I shouldn't expect anything? I said ive done more work then anyman in history and received zero for it. how could I expect anything now? I know there is no justice, I know ive been a slave my entire life. I know ive been tortured 38 years and wish I was never born and I know my life is the worst life any one could ever live. Im suffering today more then any human you've ever met. ive never met another person who suffers as much as I do. I hate my life. there is nothing I want . no goal that I cqare about. I only want to die as soon as possible. but I want my death to be legit. I will never hurt myself. ive never hurt myself. ive suffered more then you coukld imagine. you are such a waste of life to do this to a man whos been through what ive been through. if you went through ten percent of the torture ive been through you would be dead already. you are weak and a coward. you are a lightweight quitter. you give up, you cave in, yoyu have no skill. you have no talent, you don't understand what work and commitment is. I started working at five years old. ive never wanted to be an actor, im real. my truth is worse then you could imagine because your a spoiled lazy incapable worthless bully that has no sense of empathy for the one who has been stolen from at every effort and accomplished more then any man in history. literally. and had every benefit I should of earned from those accomplishments all stolen. you are looking at the victim of the largest crime ever committed against one man in human history. this is a real world trajedy happening right in front of you and you are just sitting by refusing to help make things right. no you are helping the cowards guilty of this crime that's lasted 41 years now. I hate you. you are a coward. yuou are sad ugly and a disappointment to yourself. this is your opportunity to help someone who is in more need of help then anyone on the planet. not one human on earth will help me at all. im owed 67 trillion dollars. that's how much ive had stolen from me. ive worked more then the nation has combined in as far as difficulty of solving the problems I solved. its really 67 trillion I earned the hardest way possible and lazy people unwilling to work have stolen it all. im the one. the ione who you are failing your test in front of. I was your oppurtu nity to help the most tortured. im not joking. im dead serious. I need help. is there nobody with human values. does no one think justice matters. im crying right now. I wish I was dead. I wish you had the courage to murder me . instead your to lazy to help or hurt or do anything that mattered in any way in this life. your just not good enou. your not bad enough. your just to lazy and to stupid. I hate you you bum.

    not saying she has no talent acting-wise, but come on. with a face like that, you will make it in the business sooner or later. she won the lottery of genetics. her eyes, the facial structures, the ears and her nose fit pretty much perfect together, even if she wears no makeup. thats something you can't influence or work at, some people are just randomly blessed

    Drinking Buddies is a good movie, probably my favourite movie she's been in.

    Olivia Wilde is such a lovely person, inside and out. I know I'm beating a dead horse now but she should have been cast as Lois Lane in Man Of Steel. I have nothing against Amy Adams and she did a fine job, but I think Olivia would have really nailed that role in my opinion. Both of her parents were journalists, so she knows that world very well and it could have her big breakthrough role if she was given the chance.

      +brunoman17 Eh, if the role is poorly written - which Lane in MoS surely is - then does it matter what actor is featured?

    Been a fan of her since she first appeared in the second season of The O.C. She is always great (I think) in everything, even in mediocre films.

      +ohseth I think you're right. A bad movie btw. It's a perfect example why there aren't as many movies I actually want to go to the cinemas for these days. It was visually great but the story was bad IMO. A lot of big movies these days are only about how they look and the action scenes that are in the movie. That is why the small indie films are the best movies to watch, you feel the emotion in a lot of indies.

    She was exceptional and the only choice IMO for Quorra in Tron. Drinking Buddies was *breakthrough* for sure; that movie was real and fantastic. Rush was 5-star also. It's no coincidence she is cast in awesome films. She's hella cool and very chill/real.

    She's got a good head on her shoulders, lots of smarts and wisdom through experience, and overall really nice girl. Loved her in Tron, 13 was a bit too weird for me but still well done, Drinking Buddies was fun.
