Olivia Wilde Shares The Secrets Of Her Vinyl Pubic Hair

Based on her recent interview with Seth Meyers, Olivia Wilde seems to have a complicated relationship with the merkin she wears on Vinyl. On the one hand, she seems to enjoy the extra — uh — coverage that the fake pubic hair gives her. On the other, she obviously doesn't embrace the concept of a big bush.

Wilde's role on rock-'n'-roll drama Vinyl requires nudity — it is HBO, after all — but things were different down there in the '70s. So the show has a "merkin wall for all the women on the show," as Wilde told Meyers. The actress even had a hand in crafting her pubic wig, describing it as "Build-A-Bush." You know, like Build-A-Bear, but for pubes. (For more on merkin-making, see Refinery29's interview with wigmaker Amanda Miller.)

Wilde explained that the merkin is "great." Why? "It makes you feel a little less naked." However, while on set, she made it known that she wasn't quite so furry in real life. "I was so vocal about it being fake, because I was horrified that background actors might think this was actually my real body hair," she said.

Wilde clearly does not subscribe to the Gaby Hoffmann school of thought.
