Olivia Wilde: How I Bounced Back From Divorce
March 05, 2012
Olivia Wilde's divorce from Tao Ruspoli was as low-profile as her eight-year marriage to the Italian filmmaker, with it only snagging headlines when the news broke and then it became a non-story as the separation dragged out.
"When you split with someone you love you think you’re the only person who has ever gone through it," she says in the March issue. "'Oh did you listen to the National on repeat and live on Marlboro Lights and chocolate for three months? Me too!' But I was lucky to have such a peaceful parting. It's never easy; it's f*cked up and I wouldn't recommend it. But there were no kids involved, so we could see it as this wonderful chapter. And anyway, you fall in love again. Oh God, to think that you only fall in love once in your entire life is such a depressing thought."
And while the Tron star doesn't come out and say "I Love Jason Sudeikis," they haven't gone to any great lengths to hide their relationship.
In fact, Olivia goes on to shed a little light on why Jason might actually be perfect for her. "I wanted to be on Saturday Night Live since I was 10," she says. "My father took me to a live taping on my birthday. Chris Farley was still in the cast and at the after party he had a brownie-eating contest. It became, like, a very valuable, powerful moment in my childhood. Seeing the energy of SNL made me want to be a part of it."
And now she is ... sort of.
