Olivia Wilde's NYC Cover Shoot Video

Go behind the scenes as the actress opens up about being a born-and-bred New Yorker, still feeling like a tourist in L.A., and doing crossword puzzles in pen.

I'm Olivia Wilde. Welcome to my Marie Claire cover shoot.

Glass on the road. It's only seen at night. Spurned and alone, he's trying to make things right. Hand on the level, a dime might ease his plight cause by the rebel.

I was born in New York City. And I still have a home here and I get back here as often as I humanly can. It keeps me sane. I'm only the tourist in LA.

Make things right.

I think the major difference between New York and LA, the close proximity to other human beings in New York really makes it a different experience.

Eyes in the shadow, he sees through my disguise.

As an actor, I find that in New York, I have a lot more of a chance to research.

Drowned in the shallows, he's just trying to make things right. Sign on the corner.

Years ago, I did a show about sort of the black Irish community, the Irish mobs in New York. A lot of like fire fighters and policemen would come up to me and my name is the show is Jenny Riley. And they would come up and say to me like hey, Jenny Riley. What happened? What's going on? Why did you do that to Tommy? What's going on with Jimmy? And I was like this is great. I love New York so much. I always do my crossword in pen which is just stupid really. I'm not that good. My goal is to one day be the answer to a clue.

Left to dangle in the breeze.
