Appearing on the cover of the April 2013 issue of Marie Claire, Olivia Wilde opens up about her divorce to meeting her current fiancé Jason Sudeikis and wanting children.
The House actress talks about meeting her Sudeikis after divorcing ex-husband Tao Ruspoli.
“I was just learning to be by myself. We were both seeing people but were single. He seemed to really see me, see through the b––t. He said very few words and couldn’t keep eye contact. He was so handsome and he could dance,” she says. “I thought, ‘He won’t be interested in me; I’m not a contender.’ He was so cool, so funny – I was such a fan of his and had always fancied his speed and his intelligence. He’s a brilliant actor with a brain like lightening.”
Now engaged, Wilde says she, “can’t wait for children”.
“I’m open-minded about how many, but three, which I love, is like a little party. I am not trying to have kids now – there’s no strict plan for anything in my life. What happens, happens. He’s so good with kids … I’ve never before experienced looking at someone and thinking, ‘That’s who I want to raise a child with.’ “
Wilde also talks about Ruspoli and how painful their divorce was in 2011.
“I had grown up with Tao; we had just drifted. I felt I had something to prove. If you fall off a horse, you get back up. I am not a quitter. I hung on for as long as possible, until it was more hurtful to stay … I’m so grateful for the pain and the heartbreak. It gave me the courage to leave and brought me the great love of my life,” she admits.
