Is olivia wilde dating salman rushdie
A source says many of the women are just friends who accompany him to events.
Throughout 2008, he showed up at various functions with Aimee Mullins (then 32, 5-foot-9, blond), Olivia Wilde (then 24, 5-foot-7, brunette) and Aita Ighodoro (then 25, 6 feet, black hair).
Earlier this week he escorted 24-year-old actress Olivia Wilde - herself no slouch in the beauty stakes - to the White House Correspondents' Dinner.
However, Rushdie has revealed that there will be no repeat of his all female stag night before his wedding to Lakshmi - attended by Nigella Lawson, Mariella Frostrup and Dannii Minogue, plus a "feminist stripper" - because he no longer believes in marriage.
Rushdie was “mortified” to have been linked to self-styled socialite Devorah Rose, and told Page Six he was “embarrassed” by the association. The fame and mystery help a lot for certain women,” says society photographer Patrick Mc Mullan, who has captured Rushdie with his glamorous ladies on the party scene.
Meanwhile, Rose insists Rushdie sent her romantic Facebook messages, including one that told her how “hottt” [sic] she was. Since his 2007 divorce from one of the most beautiful women in the world, Padma Lakshmi (who, by the way, was his fourth wife), Rushdie has been spotted with one jaw-dropping beauty after the next.
But “did they or didn’t they” doesn’t really matter. Rushdie, who has been knighted by the Queen of England and has won the prestigious Man Booker Prize, should really get an award for his slick moves. Before beginning a relationship with actress Pia Glenn, (she’s 3 inches taller and three decades younger), he was photographed with enough dazzling dates to populate a Miss Universe contest.
(Rushdie insists she is just a friend.) The writer’s behavior has divided the chattering classes.
“I think Salman should try out for the next season of ‘The Bachelor,’ ” says Olga Liriano, a fashion casting director.The surprise cameo is left unexplained; as is Scarlett's unusually bookish choice of outfit, complete with oversized glasses. Perhaps the star of The Other Boleyn Girl is trying to impress Rushdie, author of The Satanic Verses, with her literary credentials.
