Actress Olivia Wilde covers the April 2013 issue of Marie Claire
Actress Olivia Wilde covers the April issue of Marie Claire, on newsstands Tuesday, March 19th. In the interview, Wilde discusses her 2011 divorce from Tao Ruspoli, her upcoming role in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone alongside Steve Carell and Jim Carrey, and her relationship with fiancé, actor and comedian Jason Sudeikis.
Wilde on her 2011 divorce from Tao Ruspoli: "I had grown up with Tao; we had just drifted. I felt I had something to prove. If you fall off a horse, you get back up. I am not a quitter. I hung on for as long as possible, until it was more hurtful to stay...I'm so grateful for the pain and the heartbreak. It gave me the courage to leave and brought me to the great love of my life."
Wilde on meeting fiancé, actor and comedian, Jason Sudeikis for the first time at the finale of Saturday Night Live in 2011: "I was just learning to be by myself. We were both seeing people but were single. He seemed to really see me, see through the bullshit. He said very few words and couldn't keep eye contact. He was so handsome, and he could dance."
Wilde on going out with Sudeikis for the first time (six months after their first meeting): "I thought, 'He won't be interested in me; I'm not a contender.' He was so cool, so funny - I was such a fan of his and had always fancied his speed and his intelligence. He's a brilliant actor with a brain like lightening...I felt like fresh meat at the market...I thought, 'I'm not beautiful enough or his type.' I couldn't wait to sit down and hear him talk. On our first date, in New York City, we closed the restaurant down at 2 a.m.! He didn't kiss me, and I was madly in love. I was overwhelmed."
Wilde on having children: "We've discussed all our ideals and hopes. I can't wait for children. I'm open-minded about how many, but three, which I love, is like a little party. I am not trying to have kids now - there's no strict plan for anything in my life. What happens, happens. He's so good with kids...I've never before experienced looking at someone and thinking, That's who I want to raise a child with."
