LOS ANGELES – Olivia Wilde said she has “good problems” this year.
The “Tron” actress and her fiance, comedy actor Jason Sudeikis, have been engaged since January, yet it seems they’ve been too busy with their careers to do anything about it.

Wilde appears in the just-released racing biopic “Rush.” So far this year, the actress also has released two other films – “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” and her most recent indie movie, “Drinking Buddies,” a comedy about blurred friendships and perhaps some blurred vision from drinking a lot of beer.
Although Wilde started downing brew at a young age during frequent trips to Ireland with her father, writer-producer Andrew Cockburn, she admitted after shooting “Buddies” that she’s become even more of a beer aficionado.
“Yeah, I am now the really annoying person in the beer aisle at the supermarket who is taking way too long,” Wilde said. “The person behind me is just trying to get to the Budweiser.”
Also not moving are her wedding plans with Sudeikis. Wilde recently spoke to The Associated Press about simply enjoying being engaged and, oh yes, busy careers.
The AP: You are super busy. When in the world do you have time to plan a wedding?
Wilde: I’ll just tell them we are getting married in Uganda. That sounds too likely. That’s something I would do. I would totally do it!
The AP: Do you guys have a date planned yet?
Wilde: No, I think being engaged is really fun and I am in no rush. I think it’s really wonderful. I feel really lucky and happy. We’re both really blessed to be very busy right now, so as actors, that’s the dream – to be too busy to get married. That’s fantastic.
The AP: So is Jason a great drinking buddy?
Wilde: The greatest drinking buddy is a person who has a great sense of humor and can handle their beer. Because a bad drinking buddy is somebody who I guess falls over before you get to the fun part. Jason is a great drinking buddy.
The AP: It’s rumored you are returning to do another “Tron” movie. Is it true?
Wilde: I don’t know, they know more than I do. I’m too old; what do I play, the mom? That would be great. Yeah, I don’t know. I can’t fit into that suit after “Drinking Buddies,” that’s for sure. I would like to bring the two films together somehow. “Tron Buddies,” “Drinking Tron,” way better.
