Olivia Wilde Reveals Why She'll Encourage Her Kids to Go to College

Olivia Wilde is on the cover of InStyle magazine’s latest issue, on sale January 17th.

Here’s what the Booksmart director had to share with the mag…

On raising her daughter Daisy to be strong and independent: “With Daisy, I have witnessed how women are born with an incredible amount of strength and that society quickly pushes them to assume the more feminine role. I mean, I love that Elsa is looking pissed off on the Frozen 2 poster, but there’s still an awful lot out there that’s encouraging young women to make themselves the weaker sex. My role is to be a safe zone of support that’ll hopefully counteract what society will inevitably do to them.”

On being the first in her family not to go to college: “I remember meeting Scarlett Johansson at a party when we were 16. She was already making movies, and I was like, ‘Ugh, I’m so behind.’ So, I leapt into work. By the way, Jason [Sudeikis, Wilde’s partner] didn’t go to college either, so we’re already prepared for our kids to say they don’t want to go. I’ll carry my own baggage into that conversation when I encourage them to go.”

On being confident while directing: “Steven Spielberg has said that as a director, you must never let an actor see your fear. And I actually think that allows you to manifest confidence. It’s like when I’m with my kids and there’s turbulence on a plane, I’m the first one to say, ‘This is great! This is fun!’ And then I actually feel calmer.”
