Red Hot Chili Peppers Member Talks ‘Completely’ Falling In Love With A-List Actress


Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer discussed his crush on actress Olivia Wilde in a new Josh Mail on

A fan asked:

Hi Josh, before I get to my question, I wanted to sincerely thank you for letting me meet you and get my picture taken with you in the crowd before your guys set at the St.Louis show in May 2012. It was my 14th birthday (am now 18) and you made my whole year. Now, my question; I was wondering what your favorite part (or least favorite part) of filming music videos is and maybe which one was to make so far. Can’t get enough of you guys. Thanks so much. See you in January in STL!


Klinghoffer responded:

I generally don’t enjoy them at all. Just before doing the Dark video, I had completely fallen in love with Olivia Wilde, so when I heard she was going to direct our video, I set aside my usual grumpiness and tried to do whatever she asked. Ha! I liked the interstitial moments whilst we were filming the Maggie video on top of that building because we were actually playing for the people below in the street. That was good.
