Quotes of Olivia Wilde

#Quote
1Motherhood is heart-exploding, blissful hysteria.
2My parents said marrying was an optimistic thing to do in pessimistic times.
3[on the death of James Gandolfini] James Gandolfini was a kind, funny, wonderful guy. I'm so lucky to have worked with him. Sending love to his family. Such a sad, sad day.
4[on ex-husband writer Tao Ruspoli] 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 to the great love of my life.
5[on fiancé Jason Sudeikis] 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 lightning. I thought, "I'm not beautiful enough or his type." He seemed to really see me, see through the bullshit. He said very few words and couldn't keep eye contact. He was so handsome, and he could dance.
6I feel like the luckiest child in the world because I got to grow up in Ireland. In summer is when you really grow up. During the year, I would go back to the States, and all year long really couldn't wait to get back to Ardmore. I love the landscape, the cliff walks, the smell, the freezing cold water, the music. Do I sound like some soppy romantic? I even love the food. People always laugh at me when I say that. People in Ardmore would say, "Oh isn't living in America cool -- you live in a big city, you get to be close to all these things we only see on TV", but I found Ireland much more inspiring as a kid, much more fun, and the people had such an amazing effect on me, and I credit a lot of my growth as a child and a lot of my happiness with the people I was surrounded by in Ireland.
7I've worked with a lot of the greatest guys in the business, and now I am slowly working with more and more women. We don't really get to work together, the girls, so much.
8[on her character in Cowboys & Aliens (2011)] I liked that she is a strong character. Ella is brave and mysterious and resilient and can hold her own against the men.
9I wanted to be on Saturday Night Live (1975) as a cast member. So I went to my mom at ten years old and said, "This is what I want." And she said, "Great, well, you're going to have to go to Second City and you're going to have to audition." And she took me seriously. And I think that's what always kind of helped propel me and take myself seriously is that I had supportive parents that were in no way pressuring me to do anything. But if I declared that I wanted something, they took me seriously. And that is often what it takes when you decide to be an artist.
10[on Tron: Legacy (2010)] It was an effort to get into that suit, but if I was a real astronaut I wouldn't expect that to be easy either. It's all part of the process, it's a challenge and that is what creates the rewards.
11[on her marriage, at age 19] It was a great eight years, but it was time for both of us to move.
12Trying to find this industry's tendency to celebrate the physical is a waste of time. So I'm happy to play the game. But I am also thirsty for input. I'm not a dunce whose only skill is knowing how to take a photograph, you know? And at the end of the day, I think it makes me slightly less replaceable.
13[interview in The New York Observer] When people saw The Black Donnellys (2007), they didn't know it was the same girl from The O.C. (2003). I'm a natural blonde, but I feel like a brunette. I feel like people treat me now how I should be treated. People used to be shocked, when I was blond, that I wasn't stupid. I used to get these comments that I swear people thought were compliments. Like, "Oh! You're smart" -- like they couldn't believe it. (April 15, 2007)
