Olivia Wilde: My Dog Gets More Swag Than I Do

Olivia Wilde recently stepped out of her comfort zone and revealed a very private detail about who gets to share her bed, admitting that her only boyfriend these days was her dog, Paco.

"Is it sad, that my dog is essentially the man in my life?" she told PEOPLE at the Los Angeles premiere of The Change-Up on Monday. "He's a great dog, but it's funny because ever since I mentioned that he was my boyfriend, he gets way more swag than I ever have. I mean, truckloads arrive at the house for him. When he hears a car pull up, he just waits, like he knows it's for him!"

Paco, a 9-year-old rescue, is by now so familiar with the swag routine that he's even showing some demanding tendencies. When packages show up for him, "he is basically like, 'You can just put that in my room,'" Wilde said.

It's a far cry from his former life as a starving stray. "I found him through Much Love Animal Rescue, and he had been found in the back of a U-Haul truck with his five other brothers and sisters, and they hadn't eaten for a week," Wilde said. "I'm just really lucky to have found him, because he's my absolute favorite, favorite dog in the world."
