Olivia Wilde Covers 'Marie Claire' August 2011
Here’s what the 27-year-old Cowboys & Aliens actress had to share:
On her divorce from husband of 8 years, Tao Ruspoli: “The trauma of the whole thing has been humbling, and for the first time, I’m a little bit wobbly. I’m a case of arrested development, in a way – from spending your 20s with someone who really loves to take care of you, as my husband did. But I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.”
On redefining scandal: “I’d like to refocus everyone’s attention away from the Kardashians and onto Doctors Without Borders or aid workers. Let’s redefine scandal. Scandal is not who so-and-so is dating; scandal is the fact that 1.2 million people are still living in tents in Haiti, and cholera is rampant because Nepalese U.N. soldiers dumped s— from their Porta-Potties into the river. That’s a f—ing scandal. If the average 15-year-old was hearing about that instead of so-and-so’s plastic surgery or cheating in Hollywood, I’d feel better about our future.”
