CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — If you live in a swing district and it’s October of an even numbered year, you’re bound to get strangers knocking on your door asking for your vote. But if you’re in the right place at the right time, that stranger is actress Olivia Wilde, who has appeared in everything from “BoJack Horseman” to “Tron.” And if you ask nicely, she’ll send over her partner, “Saturday Night Live” alumn Jason Sudeikis, who is across the street with woke pro football player Chris Long, the son of NFL legend and Charlottesville resident Howie Long. That’s who greeted Nancy Braier when she opened her door Sunday, along with the congressional candidate herself, Democrat Leslie Cockburn, who also happens to be Wilde’s mother.
“Is this really happening?!” Braier said, clutching her face in joy and disbelief.
Republican admakers have long tarred Democrats for associations with “Hollywood liberals,” and especially now in the cultural wars of Donald Trump’s America, never mind that he’s a former reality TV star who hosted Kanye West last week. But would the attacks be any different if the celebrity were an immediate family members? The answer, as it turns out, is no. Read more.

The House That Runs on Dunkin’ is an intersection between the tiny house craze and the global movement toward eliminating waste and promoting sustainability by showing visitors it’s possible to live luxurious while limiting traditional energy usage. The approximately 275-square-foot home was designed by David Latimer, CEO of New Frontier Tiny Homes, and features skylights, a lofted bed, bathroom, living room, hideaway dining table, storage spaces, a full (at least by NYC apartment standards) kitchen with a range, a separate dining nook, a jacuzzi tub, and a fold-out patio.
“The architecture is incredible, it’s really innovative,” actress and filmmaker Olivia Wilde, who contributed to the interior design, told Food & Wine. “I brought some accents to it so that felt a little more like a home, but everything has been thoughtfully sourced, like the wood which is supposed to mimic the idea of a dark cup of coffee.”
Despite the home’s footprint, Wilde says the team did the math and it would be possible to host as many as ten people, proving that small spaces still have entertaining opportunities. The home takes on the Dunkin’ coffee aesthetic even further in its design, with coffee-ground inspired hues inside and out, and bright orange and pink accents, many courtesy of Wilde, which echo the Dunkin’ Donuts logo colors.
