Olivia Wilde graces the cover of Allure magazine’s October 2011 issue. Inside, she discusses her advice for young actresses, the effect divorce had on her body, and being single.
On her advice for young actresses: “If I could tell young actresses anything, it would be to just be yourself through and through. I mean, really be hard-core about sticking to your identity, because what makes you unusual is what’s going to assure your success.”
On the effect divorce had on her body: “I gained a lot of weight after my divorce, and there was this sense of, wait, hold on, you don’t look like you did before. Are you going to be up for the same roles? Do you need to be put in some sort of weird labor camp to lose all your weight?”
On being single: “I find that commitment is very relaxing, and the process of searching for a partner in life inevitably keeps you at this level of insecurity. You’re like this heat-seeking missile, just trying to figure out where to plug in.”
