Olivia Wilde takes on the role of AnnaRose Rubright, a 19-year-old college student from Medford, New Jersey.
Surrounded by an overwhelmingly prejudiced and exclusionary media that rarely reflects my reality back at me, I find myself in a permanent struggle to look in the mirror and feel confident about the person I see.
"I see myself as a daughter, a sister and a best friend", the narrator starts off. "How do you see me?".
The PSA was created by Saatchi and Saatchi for the Italian organization CoorDown.
Rubright said the reminder is needed for those in her community. Wilde is shown as a woman with Down syndrome. "How do you see me?".

It is simply two teams pitted against one another using their best customisations and loadouts, powerups and power weapons. The demon rune will make an appearance in this game, as well, and gamers will be able to un-freeze frozen players.
The poignant commercial then ends with a reflection of Wilde looking into the mirror, right before the camera pans over to Rubright, who says, "This is how I see myself".
Through Wilde and AnnaRose's acting, the point of the video powerfully sneaks up on you, revealing the discrimination individuals with Down syndrome face.
Rubright now affectionately describes Olivia Wilde as her "twin", according to the Post. A woman is speaking about how she sees herself.
But in the new PSA, Rubright succeeds in shooting down these misconceptions, with a little help from Wilde, who she now calls her "twin". What makes it more heartbreaking is to realize that the impossibility of their dreams is rooted in other people's perception of the condition. That's a very real truth, and in fact research shows that people view children with Down syndrome in a much more negative light than they do their typical peers.
Surely seeing AnnaRose live her life exactly how she lives it - as a full time college student, working part-time at a physical therapy center and playing basketball and training in swimming - surely seeing that will prove more than watching Olivia Wilde acting.
