Olivia Wilde is gracing the cover of Allure October in 2011. In the interview with the magazine, Olivia Wilde dishes on her divorce and weight gain, about being single and rumors that linked her with Justin Timberlake, Chris Pine and Ryan Gosling, and her role in “In Time”.
Talking abot the tabloids that linked her with Justin Timberlake, Chris Pine, Ryan Gosling and even the author Salman Rushdie, Olivia stated “”Isn’t that hilarious? I mean, in order to be dating all the people they think I am, I’d need four vaginas! It’s impossible!”.
She is now single, and she said “I find that commitment is very relaxing, and the process of searching for a partner in life inevitably keeps you at this level of insecurity. You’re like this heat-seeking missile, just trying to figure out where to plug in.”.
The 27 – year – old actress admits that her divorce was the most difficult thing that she ever dealt with. But she has no regrets whatsoever since this matter helped her grow up. “I got married at a very young age, so I sort of jumped into a stage of adulthood prematurely. I learned quite a lot,” Olivia admits. “I gained a lot of weight after my divorce, and there was this sense of, wait, hold on, you don’t look like you did before. Are you going to be up for the same roles? Do you need to be put in some sort of weird labor camp to lose all your weight?” she says with half- laughing.
On some of the best advice was given by a casting agent “She was like, ‘A, people don’t wear turtlenecks here. B, why are you not showing any skin?’, Wilde said “I’m not going to sell my body to get a role; it’s about the acting. She was this very powerful, wise 60-year-old woman, but at the same time aware of how this business works. And she’s like, ‘Sex sells. Go put on a tank top.”
Olivia said that she had to get a certain change to make her comfortable with the new pattern. “I went through this kind of A Star is Born transformation, where they made my hair very blonde, and I got very skinny, and I was like, ‘And now, I fit the mold! If I could tell young actresses anything, it would be to just be yourself through and through. I mean, really be hard-core about sticking to your identity, because what makes you unusual is what’s going to assure your success,” she states.
