Olivia Wilde Covers 'Cosmopolitan' April 2011

Olivia Wilde Covers 'Cosmopolitan' April 2011

Olivia Wilde is sexy in pink on the cover of Cosmopolitan‘s April 2011 issue.

Here is what the 26-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her embarrassing moment with President Obama: “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.”

On the character she’d like to play next: “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.”

On what makes the perfect leading man: “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.”

FYI: Olivia is wearing a pink silk jersey top and skirt with a leather belt all by Michael Kors.

    she’s like so perfect

  • estele

    Nice, dumping your husband when you get famous

  • Lilakoi Moon

    @estele: Agreed. She’s pretty. But there’s something about her that bugs me. She seems to be a huge b!tch greedy for attention and fame. Like I bet she’d be capable of having left her husband because she’s now famous!

  • lauren

    Either theres some serious photoshopping going on or shes had a boob job.
    Also agree on the above comments,she used to always seem so humble and down to earth, but since her fame has risen, her ego seems to have as well.

  • jljlj

    she’s flat chested and there’s nothing wrong with that, but this is so sad when they feel like enlarging her boobs is the only way to sell more magazines.

  • Ismail

    @estele:

    Her ex-husband is an italian prince you moron, they split up months ago .. but made the anouncement recently. & he’s the one who dumped her.

  • Kari

    She is pretty with make up, not so much without make up, I never recognize her on candid pictures.

  • mike

    She’s pretty :)

  • Lou

    Hahaha that story made me laugh!

  • Coy

    She’s not pretty, she’s PERFECT

  • mell

    meh. She always looks like an anorexic bubble head. Im glad they somewhat photoshopped her head to a normal size. SNOOZE. so many American girls who look like this. Nothing special. no ugly,not amazing. She is average.

    How’s want magazine 1$ for yo

  • http://J.com Kaz simply Amaazingg!!!!!!!!

    1 dollar only

  • hater

    she probably would give Pres Obama a blow job

  • hater

    she would give Pres Obama a hum dinger in the pants

    go down on a real man you doofus

  • povia

    Only President Obama is cool enough to stay on the line and laugh about it.

  • AJD

    I really don’t understand you people. How can you possibly think her ego has gone up? What have you interacted with her everyday for the past 5 months? Geez leave her alone. Saying she might be a huge b*tch. Go on youtube and watch videos of her, she’s the sweetest women. She started an organization for kids overseas in Africa and Haiti. She sends thank you messages to people who donate to her charity. Yeah because a huge b*tch would do honorable things like that. Oh and FYI, her husband dumped HER! So cut the crap about breaking up just to get famous. It’s amazing how some people will say ANYTHING about a person once they become more famous. She’s kind, sweet, and she actually cares about the world and the less fortunate people abroad unlike some greedy Americans nowadays. She’s a great woman!

  • what

    I want her and Garrett to date

  • Nancy

    nice post @ajd. all of her celebrity friends speak very highly of her efforts with charitable causes so ppl should leave her alone.

  • Derek117

    Olivia is a caring, intelligent woman who has made mistakes (like getting married way too young), but is using her new-found Celeb status to bring attention to worthwhile causes that would have otherwise gone un-noticed.Her work in Africa and Haiti are in contrast to the tabloid stars who’s careers on built on partying like/with Rock stars. Oh, and Olivia’s a pretty good actress,too.

  • Ava

    I don’t understand how she is considered attractive, her face is half forehead and jaws are so pronounced,.

    And she has been desperately tiring to make herself happen, if I have to see half naked in another photo layout , I will have to shoot her.

    Go away, your not attractive or a good actress, and people can smell your try from a mile away.

  • Tom

    “Only President Obama is cool enough to stay on the line and laugh about it.”

    ah Obama so cool, him and his mom pants,
    God what losers, what makes Obama cool to the 20 crowd, besides being brainwashed, is it his mortgaging your future with trillions of dollars of debt or passing a health plan that paid on the backs of the young and healthy or no better yet maybe it almost 3 years of 10% unemployment and 20% unemployment for 18 to 29 years old, those coming out of college, or maybe it’s his throwing one party after another while the middle east goes up in flames.

  • lynn

    I love her she’s awesome

  • samuel

    airbrushed to the max, cgi boobs haha

  • ml

    She seems a bit too desperate to be the next big thing (not as annoyingly as Lea Michele though), and she definitely has an eating disorder, but the most annoying thing about her is how BORING she is!! Seriously, I don’t even WANT to read her interview, like zero inclination because I know that everything she says will be perfect and goody-goody but unmemorable and dull as porridge.

    But I don’t blame her for leaving her husband (or however it played out), sometimes it just doesn’t work out, and accusing her of facilitating the split for her career or some other nefarious intentions is a bit much.

  • JS

    Okay she’s on the cover of Cosmo and all of a sudden she’s trying too hard to be the “next big thing?” Every year women grace the cover of cosmo, does every single one of those women crave to be more famous? You don’t know her or her intentions so f*ck off. Saying that she is boring and what not. Again, know one here knows her so why should we label her as boring, or desperate? And another thing that makes me sick to see people write about her looks. Yeah she has a pretty big forehead and a prominent jaw, but does that give anyone the right to criticize her that way? SHE WAS BORN THAT WAY!! She can’t change that. So basically what some people are doing is criticizing what god provided to her. If someone was born with one eye, should we make fun of him/her? If someone was born with one leg, do we criticize him/her? We don’t put people down born with disabilities, but since Olivia has none, that gives us the right to question her face? Or anyone else’s face for that matter? How childish! Some people here are just immature idiots who need to learn how to RESPECT other people. Obviously some of you don’t care about other people’s feelings. I feel sorry for you. She is a great woman, visits and helps unfortunate children abroad, and she’s not ruining her life,unlike Lohan. So LEAVE HER ALONE!

    @Tom:
    You are making this article more about your political rants rather than embracing the topic of the article – Olivia Wilde. Save your political ranting for CNN or FOX News and take your negative comments elsewhere.

  • Jacqueline

    @JS: Thank GOD there’s some sense in these comments. Well said, and well appreciated. Some people have nothing better to do than attack someone based on their looks and make immature comments. To those I say, how shallow of you and thank you for showing that you have no depth to your thoughts or written comments whatsoever.

  • Tony

    Wow. I cannot believe some of the comments on here. People say she’s boring, and she’s desperate for attention. As if we can receive that message from looking at a picture. How can anyone possibly know she’s boring to be around. Why don’t some of you people find her, date her for a couple months and then decide whether she’s boring or not. Until then, leave her alone. How can she be desperate too? What do we all have the ability to tune into her thoughts and emotions? Are the people on this post psychic? She’s on a magazine and BOOM! She’s desperate! So anyone on a cover of a magazine whether it’s Olivia or the next Mother Teresa, they are automatically craving for more publicity and only fame can quench their thirst for the spotlight. IS that it? Is that the reason you immature pricks? HAHAHAHA, freakin retards! You don’t know her! We don’t know what she’s all about. So why say random sh*t? It’s really fun to see people say things about another person when they really have no factual evidence to back it up. If you are going to say something about her, talk about something you can back it up with like her acting or her constant involvement in poverty issues overseas. Yeah she loves to help children in Africa and Haiti, She regularly visits these poverty stricken places and spends time with these people. She sends medical supplies and raises donations for children with NOTHING. I saw a couple of videos on youtube where she personally sent a video message to people who donated to her charity, thanking them and telling them what great people they are. Yeah we should totally talk crap about someone who does those things. And why do some people criticize her face or her body? Yeah she has very strong facial features, but is that an excuse to say something about her. “Ohh her forehead is big, or her jaw is to wide, WAAAAHHHHH.” SHUT UP AND QUIT B*TCHIN! If you complain about her looks or anyone else’s looks, you (like what JS said) are basically complaining about what God made. That’s her face, be a grown up and accept her for what she is and what she looks like. God why do we let stupid people use the internet?

  • Pretty Ka

    Anyone else noticed how they placed “gyno news” right in between her thighs? …these magazine editors have no shame :S

  • http://twitter.com/mariesoleil_m Marie

    Olivia is not Anorexic, she does not have an eating disorder, she is has not had a breast augmentation, or any of the negatives that are being displayed. Olivia has her own website called wildethings.org, where she is doing charitable things for children all over Haiti and Africa. She has pictures on her twitter and on her website of all the things she does.
    If you read her blogs, she is a strict vegetarian. She only eats organic food. She does yoga and she’s very intune with her body. As for her “boob job”, has anyone actually ever heard of a push-up bra? It can take a woman with no breasts to ACTUALLY having breasts. I love Olivia, she’s a gorgeous woman, and she is doing everything in her power to help out all the children of Haiti and Africa. Don’t hate because she’s using her fame for something good.
    As for her marriage. She was 18, Tao Ruspoli was 30. They separated for their own reasons. None of our business why the separated. I highly doubt it was because she was famous, while he is a Prince and famous in his own right. Judging Olivia Wilde is like saying she’s just good for playing Bisexual women and drinking. Please! She’s so much more than that, and people are just so damned prejudice. Learn to appreciate an someone, who instead of sticking a needle in her vein, or sniffing so much cocaine and going in an out of jail (i.e LiLo), she’s actually doing something with her celebrity. So much pessimism.

    @Ismail:

    according to her rep the “decision was Olivia’s, for all the typical hollywood reason’s, her career had exploded and she saw marriage as not bieng much fun” her husband is quoted as bieng “heartbroken and devastated” she is allegedly dating Ryan Gosling, which it would appear started at the after partyu of the G/Globes, three weeks before the announcement. You have to wonder how long that’s been going on!!!

  • Adriana

    @AJD:

    her husband did not dump her, the statement from HER rep contradicts that idea!

  • Adriana

    For the record, i don’t jusge her, it’s her life… but hey, it’s hollywood after all. I hope she finds what it is she is looking for all the same, 18 is very young to get married i have to say. She was married 8 years, crikey that’s like 2 lifetimes in hollywood lmao!

  • Adriana

    Anyway, it’s hollywood… but the seperation was her decision not her husbands. For the record i don’t judge her, but i think the statement from her rep which is the only official word on the matter tells us alot, that isn’t my opinion that is what her rep has said.

    I love her…SO Hawt!!! Check out the full spread here… http://beverlyhillshoneys.com/olivia-wilde-cosmopolitan-magazine-april-2011/
