Spirit Awards: Anthony Mackie reveals how revealing Olivia Wilde can be [Video]

February 26, 2011 |  5:09 pm

Earlier this month, Anthony Mackie hit the big time for a young actor: He landed one of the coveted spots on the cover of Vanity Fair's annual Hollywood issue. And, as fortune would have it, during the photo shoot he was posed alongside Olivia Wilde, who was wearing a quite, um, revealing dress.

Spirit Awards pictures "I didn't see the whole thing," he laughed, referring to Wilde's chest. "They had her so taped in that you didn't get to see anything."

Only a year ago, Mackie snagged a Spirit Awards nomination for supporting actor in the Oscar-winning film "The Hurt Locker." But of late, he said, most of the attention he's received has been in response to the VF cover.

"It's funny how many people saw it and how many people read it," he said. "It gave my family something to talk about."

Next up, the 31-year-old stars opposite Matt Damon in "The Adjustment Bureau," whose release date has been pushed numerous times. Mackie blamed the delay on his costar's busy schedule.

"Matt Damon has 20 million movies coming out, so you have to find a spot for his new movie to come out," he said with a smile.
