Olivia Wilde Covers 'Marie Claire' August 2011

Olivia Wilde Covers 'Marie Claire' August 2011

Olivia Wilde wears a Calvin Klein Collection dress as she graces the cover of Marie Claire‘s August 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (July 19).

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.”

    27 my ass!

  • delilah

    I agree with her about Haiti!

  • Josh

    Why did they photo-shopped away her giant jaw so she looks like Carla Bruni? Her PR team seems intent on recreating Olivia again and again.

  • ModestMouse

    Her quote on redefining scandal just made me like her even more. You also mentioned in a previous post that she likes Bon Iver. Now my love for her is off the charts.

  • QQ

    Scandal is you not wearing a bra to sell magazines?

  • Tater Tot

    I hate her attitude and her almighty JAW

  • Alpha

    I thought it was JLO ! It’s “too photoshopped”

  • sarah

    I can’t stand her! She is one of those actors who will do anything for publicity.

  • bruce

    she is so full of herself…I bet her husband dumped her

  • Delphic

    Woah, what is up with the hate? This is the same site that likes Cheryl Cole. What has the world come to.

    Firstly, I like how she bashed those skanks. And secondly, to the person who mentioned her not wearing a bra. Why would she wear a visible bra with that type of dress? Are you a moron?

  • marabelle

    She has a very masculine face and I can’t believe she’s only 27. She looks a lot older. There ‘s something about her that i just don’t like and I have no idea what it is! LOL

  • Home Remedies MD

    I really don’t see how many people think that Olivia Wilde is hot

  • Sue Denim

    She’s so ridiculously pretentious and one of those faux-humble people who are always bragging but disguise it behind something else. She and her publicist need to chill.
    If she really is as serious about activism as she says she is then why doesn’t she name the organisation she works for instead of making this a story about herself and then that ridiculous comment about how people are only obsessed with scandal and then there she is topless and later we’ll see staged paparazzi pics of her.
    *EYE ROLL*

  • Lisa

    Oh just enough with the HUGE JAW already, she was born with it, she didn’t choose to have it so stop offending her using her physical appearance. I’m sure you people who comment have physical flaws as well and I don’t know what you’d do if everyone was constantly pointing them out everyone on the internet. Admit it already, you’d want to be in her shoes, it’s not about her jaw or her masculine face.

  • Lisa

    *everywhere not everyone

  • ?

    It’s me or Hollywood wants to create Next Angelina Jolie with Olivia Wilde : Humanitarian Work and Tomb Raider ?! And Next ? Adoption and…?

  • betsy

    @?: she already is a sl*t

  • Wilde

    Everybody hates on her! Why? What has she done so wrong that makes everyone hate her? She’s a huge philanthropist who does nothing but charitable work, she is working on a successful show, she is in two films, a comedy and an action flick and people are going to bash her because of her looks? Go pick on someone who only gives a sh!t about themselves. Go bash on, oh, I don’t know, Miranda Kerr!
    Olivia Wilde has spent so much of her time giving back to the kids in Haiti. She went down there to do work with Demi Moore, Gerard Butler, among a few others. She was named the sexiest woman alive by Maxim magazine, and she is one of the most beautiful people on earth. Everyone that thinks that she’s masculine, she just has prominent features. No one ever says anything bad about a model, but because she divorced her husband, is become a film star, and is successful, everyone is going to bash her.
    Go bash on someone who doesn’t do any philanthropy, who doesn’t give a crap about children in third world refugee countries, dying from famine, disease and mosquito bites (which deliver Malaria). Olivia is fantastic, everyone here that hates her is just full of disdain. She does get online, she knows what she can do, and defamation is a definite thing she can sue those that are hating on her and her personal and professional life. Let it go!

  • Denise

    Wow! She does kind of look like Carla Bruni. She has some good points here, but she should start by taking her own advice; she does enjoy the daily photo ops and links to well known actors. Can’t say much for her acting skills….. Yet.

  • marq

    Her social acumen greatly exceeds the normalcy bias generally found in within the more common cognitive dissonance.

  • beautifulloser

    Not that we should hold the JustJared audience to any sort of standard (no offense Jared), but you’re all quite WRONG! If you don’t like how she looks, that’s fine but don’t belittle her humanitarian efforts. Olivia has done more than all 20 something of you lame ‘commenters’ combined, I GUARANTEE it. She DOES mention Doctors without Borders in the article and if you cared to learn about this very interesting (beautiful, humble) person, you’d quickly find that she works with Artists for Peace and Justice, as is well documented.

    Needless to say, I’m a huge fan of this type of celebrity. Keep up the beautiful work OW.

  • Jasmine

    I agree with her 1000% on her “redefining scandal” quote.

  • Belle Du Jour

    I am so sick of celebrities telling us what we should be paying attention to. What about the US and our 14.3 billion dollar debt? We need to take care of ourselves first. If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love someone else?
    And besides all that, real celebrity gossip and plastic surgery disasters are way more interesting.

  • Keyser

    Why can’t famous, rich people just be charitable? Why do they have to bring it up in every interview they do? If you’re doing it to get points you’re doing it for the wrong reasons.

  • j

    i like her. she has an interesting face and is kind and smart enough to try raising awareness about social issues.

  • K.L.

    Looking forward to seeing “Cowboys & Aliens” because of her :)

  • Steve

    Please, a Scandal is a scandal. We don’t need to change the definition of words for her sorry ass. There is a word for what she is talking about – maybe she needs to look it up.
