The tabloids offer a prestigious place in their heart for the 26 years old “Tron: Legacy” and “House” star. Indeed, recently we had the chance to find out that she decided to split from her husband after 8 years of marriage, Prince Tao Ruspoli.

Olivia Wilde succeeded in making a real impression on the public with her unique beauty as well as pro acting talent. The multitude of magazine covers she features on are simply the proofs of her blooming reputation as one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood. The April 2011 Cosmopolitan issue reveals an interesting interview with the movie diva tackling several funny and also more serious themes and events related to her private and professional life.

The interviewers were eager to find out more about her embarrassing moment with President Obama, to which she added that “He was calling to thank me for traveling to Iowa in October 2007 to volunteer for the campaign. I was very professional the whole time we spoke, then I hung up the phone- or so I thought- and started squealing for about 15 seconds. I later found out from a friend who was with him that he listened to the shrieking and laughed the entire time.”

Additionally, we have the opportunity to find out more on her dream role about which Olivia claims that “In the past year or so, I’ve played really strong women. Next, I’d like to explore someone who is more open – a woman who has to learn to fight.” Producers and directors indeed granted her with the roles of more impressive characters who managed to survive in various conditions and use their inner strength to handle the delicate situations. Her recent movie, the “Tron: Legacy” together with the beloved series “House” all reveal the strong and confident side of the actress who managed to nail down these roles like a real pro.

Furthermore, we’ll also find out Olivia Wilde’s opinion on the perfect leading man. She reveals that “They have to have a sense of humor and humility. You really have to have a sense of humor; it’s so important. When I think of guys like Daniel Craig and Garrett Hedlund, what’s made them so great is their ability to seem extraordinary but also relatable.”
