E! News caught up with the actress at the Toronto International Film Festival on the red carpet at the Third Person premiere to get the details about her latest project.
After hearing that the legendary actor was attracted to working on this film because of "Olivia Wilde, naked," the brunette beauty made a quick joke.
"One of the biggest reasons I did the movie was a clothed Liam Neeson," Wilde quipped.
All kidding aside, the 29-year-old actress gushed that she has always been a fan of Neeson's work and that the whole cast of the romantic drama is "stellar."
Wilde looked very glamorous at the premiere wearing a yellow Valentino dress with nude Jimmy Choo pumps and a neon pink lip color.
So, how nude is Wilde in her upcoming role?
"You know, the funny thing is, I'm nude in this film, but you don't see all the goods and it's a silly scene," Wilde revealed. "It's not even a sexy scene."
Sexy or silly scene aside, how did she prepare?
"You pretend like you are skinnydipping," she said. "You know you just shut your eyes and run."
