A word of caution to all you Thirteen haters out there: Olivia Wilde says this could be the year you start warming up to her icy House alter ego. Or not. Either way, she takes the polarizing response to her character as a compliment, adding, “I’d rather they hate me or love me than feel totally ambivalent.” This could all be a moot point come May when Thirteen’s three-year fellowship expires. For Wilde’s take on that, check out my complete interview with her from Entertainment Weekly‘s pre-Emmy party after the jump…

To see who else I ran into at last night’s bash (hint: Kaley Cuoco, Katee Sackhoff, Carlton Cuse, and more) head over to our Emmy hub ASAP.
