Olivia Wilde lands the
December August cover of InStyle Magazine. Odd coloring and clothes for the August issue, isn’t it? Anyway, it’s the jeans issue I guess, so maybe that’s why the cover seems so out of place for August. Olivia isn’t really promoting anything these days, but has a list of movies in the works. Maybe she’s just promoting her upcoming marriage to comedian Jason Sudeikis? The two got engaged last winter, and they seem totally in love.
On being comfortable in the here and now: “I’m pretty comfortable in my own skin. I’m not the neurotic type. I don’t think there are things lurking everywhere to destroy me. I live pretty much in the present.”
On her fiance Jason Sudeikis: “I like having a real partner. It’s the model I grew up with. It’s part of why I was able to take so many chances in my life, because I felt like someone was watching my back. I could never imagine life without someone I respect, someone who offers me infinite possibilities.”
On the ups and downs of dating in Hollywood: “There are spikes and dips and plateaus in this business. I’ve seen couples fall apart through it, and it is heartbreaking. You wonder what will happen–will he love me if I’m not as successful? Will jealousy kill us? I know there will be times when Jason is working more than I am, but I’m actually excited by that. I’m excited by what he will become, what depth he has.”

On her style: “I used to dress like [bluesman] John Lee Hooker, with wide-collared polyester shirts and corduroy suits. Boys were my role models back then.” Now, she’s a red carpet fixture. “I have the torso of a tall woman and the lower body of a short woman. Who knows what evolutionary purpose I’ve been made for? People always told me I had nice eyes, so I accentuated that.”
I thought the comments about Jason were really interesting, and worrying about what the future holds for them. I think it’s a very honest comment to make that she worries about jealousy. How could you not in that industry? Hopefully they can both make it work – and they won’t have to face divorce. Olivia has already been divorced once.
