Olivia Wilde: Romance was a burn
Olivia Wilde found it “difficult” to begin dating her current fiancé Jason Sudeikis after her divorce.
The 29-year-old actress became engaged to American comedian Jason Sudeikis back in January.
Following her 2011 divorce from husband of eight years, Italian filmmaker Tao Ruspoli, Olivia confesses it was a challenge to become romantically intimate with Jason in the early stages of their romance.
She simply felt burned.
“It’s really hard to jump into a relationship after you feel you’ve been through a difficult time…I liken it to a burn victim jumping back into a Jacuzzi,” she revealed in Fashion magazine’s September issue. “It took a lot of coaxing.”
Olivia is glad she took the plunge as she is benefitting in so many ways from being in a relationship with Jason.
The actress admires the former Saturday Night Live funnyman’s professional skills and has even used some of his technique in her own career.
“His skill level is so high. I really have learned a lot from him, especially when it comes to being bold and taking risks as an actor within a role,” she explained. “Comedians are so great about trying things, like doing seven takes in seven different ways and really not being afraid to stumble.”
Olivia and Jason started dating in November 2011 and they live together in New York City.
It will be the second union for both stars as Jason split from writer Kay Cannon in 2010 after six years of marriage.
