Wilde was ‘obsessed’ with Rolling Stones

LOS ANGELES: American actress Olivia Wilde, who is working with the Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger in the American period drama TV series Vinyl, says she was completely obsessed with the British rock band in her teens.

Vinyl is a collaboration of Hollywood film-maker Martin Scorsese with Jagger and scriptwriter Terence Winter.

“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 said in a statement.

“When I was 12 years old I was completely obsessed with the Rolling Stones, and I learned about the blues through the Rolling Stones,” the actress added.

The actress also said that “people will learn a huge amount from the show. That’s what I keep telling people. I love the show not only because it’s so sexy, well-written and intense, but what you will learn is so fascinating.”
