Rush treats its Formula 1 racing subjects James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) like gods, no doubt. But it’s Olivia Wilde who makes the best entrance in the film as Suzy Miller, a British supermodel who finds Hunt and his throbbing engine attractive. In the video above we caught up with Wilde at the Toronto Film Festival about her role as Miller and why she thinks we all seem to find the ’70s so romantic these days. We also asked that question of Ron Howard, for whom the answer seems pretty obvious: the ’70s were a romantic time for him, as Happy Days was the #1 TV show in the world and he was just getting his start behind the camera directing Grand Theft Auto for Roger Corman, another movie about vehicular destruction. Is Rush a full-circle moment for him then? Watch below to find out.
