Olivia Wilde recently directed her first feature film, Booksmart, which stars her longtime partner and the father of her two children (Otis, 4, and Daisy, 1), Jason Sudeikis. Olivia and Jason’s oldest is only 4, but according to the Life Itself star, he’s already following in his mom’s famous footsteps.

“He knows I just directed a film, because now he’s really into saying ‘action’ and ‘cut,’” Wilde told us at the InStyle HPFA party in Toronto on Saturday. "He’ll tell me like ‘OK mom, film me jumping in a pool. Action! Cut! Go closer, shoot it again!’ He’s really into directing, I think he’d make a good director.”

Wilde celebrated the premiere of Life Itself at TIFF on Saturday evening in a floor-sweeping long-sleeved Alexandre Vauthier gown with a plunging neckline that reached the glittering belt at her waist.

Sudeikis was also in Toronto this week, arriving at the premiere of his film Driven on Monday.

Life Itself opens nationwide on Sept. 21.
