Olivia Wilde strikes a sexy pose for the June 2011 issue of ‘Glamour’ magazine. The 27-year-old actress looks gorgeous in an Enza Costa striped t-shirt and Eres Paris bikini. In the cover story, Olivia opens up about marrying young and her relationship with ex-husband Tao Ruspoli, but also about the idea of dating again, about growing up around movie stars and what she learned from her mother.
“She’s gorgeous and she taught me that a real feminist doesn’t apologize for her beauty. You can be a sexy, beautiful woman and be the smartest person in the room,” Olivia told the magazine about her mom.
The beautiful actress also reveals that she understood from an early age the fact that fame is meaningless. “I remember Mick Jagger [talking] politics with my parents… At 13 I came to L.A. for a press junket, and it was this magical land of palm trees and George Clooney. But [then] I saw George talking to my dad about politics, and I thought what makes these people special is that they’re not just actors… I saw people being valued for their intelligence and their interests as opposed to their stardom. It instilled in us that stardom is meaningless.”
This year, in March, Olivia Wilde has split from Italian prince husband, Tao Ruspoli, after eight years of marriage. Speaking about their relationship, the actress said for ‘Glamour’ that, “We got engaged at Burning Man and married on a school bus. We were not conventional.”
The two met when Olivia was only 18 years old and got married after a relationship of just six months. On marrying so young the actress says that, “Everyone said it to me—and I had to figure it out for myself—but you change so much. I’ve learned it’s important to spend time in a relationship with yourself and not being defined by your partner.”
She also added that the end of a marriage is not a tragedy, but living unhappily can be. “The mark of a good marriage is partnership and continuing to feel inspired by your spouse. I had that with Tao. But the end is not necessarily the tragedy. Staying in a relationship that is no longer working is the tragedy. Living unhappily-that’s the tragedy.”
Now that she’s single again Olivia is free to start dating again. “I’m opening up my heart to the idea of dating. It’s funny—my friends would always come to me for romantic advice, [but] I know nothing, and things have changed since I was dating in high school! I’m really trying hard to spend this time working on myself,” she told the magazine.
