When she’s not co-starring in the HBO series “Vinyl,” actress Olivia Wilde is busy directing music videos for big-deal bands that need A-list talent behind the camera. Case in point: Wilde recently directed a Red Hot Chili Peppers music video for the song “Dark Necessities,” the lead single off of their latest album “The Getaway.” The video features a group of long boarders skating around dark streets and a grocery store, drinking beers, and getting tattoos while the band plays the song in a separate room.
