Olivia Wilde: Wilde's Streak Video

Olivia Wilde is on the rise both in love and on-screen — and she's getting quite used to the view.

Hi. I'm Olivia Wilde. Welcome to my Marie Claire photo shoot. First thing I think about when I wake up in the morning is what I have already forgotten to do to prepare for that day. I have to look at the schedule immediately 'cause I'm so disorganized. And my dog sleeps kind of on top of me, so I usually get up a little cuddled. Spring this year is exciting because of a lot personal work things I get to do-- which I'm really excited about all over the world-- and some films coming out. But I'm just ready to, you know, take off all the layers and get back into some of the beautiful silks that I wore today for the photo shoot. My hidden talent is I can play the spoons. So, if I ever lose everything, you can find me on a corner in New Orleans playing with spoons. And the weird thing is I don't know how I got this talent. I have so many guilty pleasures. I don't know what pleasures I have that are not guilty. A very girly typical one is just like good red wine, good dark chocolate, and a bath with like all the fixings. I have some really wacky dresses that I don't know-- I even look where the head hole is. I don't understand. I think I bought them like, kind of like grunge getup punk phase. Bedazzled, like snakeskin boots. They're awful. I kind of keep them as like a novelty item. I'm a real girl's girl. I'm a real-- like I have a pack of female friends, and I really grew up with sisters, a bunch of women around me. And I think probably because I haven't gotten to work with so many women-- I've worked with a lot of men in my career, and I want to work with more women. But because of that, people perceive me to be more of like a guy's girl. And sure I can hang with the boys, but I'm definitely like the girls. I just read this book-- I'm late because it came out in 2005. It was a huge success, but I missed it. But it's a beautiful novel, called the "History of Love" by Nicole Krauss. And I loved it. And I'm rereading "Freedom," which I know everybody read-- and I did too. But sometimes, it's worth revisiting novels. It's really fun. It's kind of like slipping to an old sweatshirt or something. "Be in the moment." I would give myself that advice right now, too. But I would definitely tell my 20-year-old self, "Just be in the moment." And slow down at the same time. "Chill out" maybe is the best way to say it. Just chill.

This Is A Developing Story
