So I wanted to share with you my point of view about the way Olivia's career is going.
So, it obvious, that Olivia really started from House.
It's not like she didn’t have the other roles before, of course! But the only one she was known before House was Alex Kelly in The OC, and it's hard to say that teenage drama is the highest rank possible.
House put her into the flashlight, and that how she got the title of famous Maxim's Hot number one. First of all, she’s hot herself, second of all, her role as 13 is considered hot, because of character’s way of acting and the fact she’s bisexual.

And I believe that the story really starts from here - because in out world it sadly matters less, if you're talented, than, if you're hot. Olivia was able to stay on the top because of really hot photo shoots she had and the fact that she is a really smart girl, who also takes huge part in charity actions and politics stuff. Her intelligence makes her almost impossible to dislike – even, if you don’t like her thin figure of her way of acting, when she starts to talk, you usually get her.

Olivia is the same type of girl as Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie – since she’s more popular, she doesn’t get any natural, sweet photo shoots, like in the past - almost all of them are sexy and there is some I find disgraceful, like the last one:

Olivia is lately getting more and more film roles, and, that’s important, in huge films. Tron Legacy is a really loud production, the same goes with upcoming Cowboys & Aliens, Butter and I’m.mortal/Now - even person who isn’t really interested in cinema, as I am, knows a lot about these projects, even if they are already in production, that are going to be huge.

Lately there was this article, and, even if it was kinda cute, I found it disturbing:

Twitter War

Olivia is having great time shooting her films and I don’t get why House staff wants her so bad to remember where she “belongs”. I guess they are worried that she will drop the project (House) and I have to tell you… I hope she will. It seems obvious to me that she wants to move into the movies for full-time and Hollywood style is doing good for her. She could be there even better than @ TV – for me there are TV actors, movie actors and theatre actors and it’s unusual then someone is good at every of these domains (ex. Hugh doesn’t feel well at theatre, one actress from my city is horrible at TV and really amazing on stage…) I’m not even really missing 13, never really liked that character, since season 4, even if Olivia is a nice one to look at, I feel that Amber Tamblyn’s character gives show much more.
So I hope that Olivia will do just great with her upcoming roles in
Butter
Now
Cowboys & Aliens
The Change Up
On the Inside
The Next Three Days
