Olivia Wilde Calls Her Divorce a ‘Trauma’

Olivia Wilde is gracing the cover of Marie Claire and is opening up about her divorce to hubby, Tao Ruspoli and she calls her ‘trauma.’

“The trauma of the whole thing has been humbling, and for the first time, I’m a little bit wobbly,” she admits. “I’m a case of arrested development, in a way — from spending your 20s with someone who really loves to take care of you, as my husband did. But I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.”

Emotional turmoil goes with the territory, however: “I kept saying, ‘I failed!’ Admitting that I’m not perfect was a wonderful thing that came out of this. There’s this fear that everyone is going to be disappointed in you, but I’m human. I don’t live up to any sort of ideal.”
