Olivia Wilde Covers Town & Country March 2012

Posted Monday February 6, 2012 10:43 AM GMT

She's fresh off of premiering her new movie "The Words" at the Sundance Film Festival, and the lovely Olivia Wilde padded her press efforts by covering the March 2012 issue of Town & Country.

The 27-year-old actress brought her breathtaking beauty to an elegant spread lining the magazine's pages while speaking about topics including her indebtedness to "House" co-star Hugh Laurie and moving on after splitting with ex-husband Tao Ruspoli.

Highlights from Miss Wilde's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to check out Town & Country!

On learning from Hugh Laurie:
"I spent four years on House and learned so much from Hugh [Laurie]. I owe my entire film career to him. It was the first time I'd been allowed to play somebody not defined by my looks."

On her role in 'Butter':
"I loved playing Brooke. It's a great comedic role. She's like a hand grenade every time she enters a scene."

On moving on after divorcing Tao Ruspoli:
“The good thing about getting divorced young – if there is a good thing – is that it makes you realize there is no schedule to life … [Also] my body changed, but I’m trying to be healthier now, eating lots of vegetables and fruit from my garden in L.A.”

On deciding to try a career in acting:
“My dad took me to see Saturday Night Live as a birthday treat, and I knew at that moment that this was what I wanted to do.”
