Olivia Wilde appears on a moving “Glamour” cover – literally


They say print is dead, but I say it just needs more Olivia Wilde. Well, to be more specific, it needs more moving Olivia Wilde. The reigning (at least for a little while longer) 2010 AfterEllen.com Hot 100 winner is on a new, moving magazine cover for Glamour this month. Sit down and be amazed.


To the future indeed. I want to go to there, times 1,000. The moving, talking cover only works on the iPad edition of Glamour, so don’t run out to the newsstand and expect Olivia give the come-hither finger to you. This is the first moving, talking magazine cover for Glamour and can be purchased for $1.99 an issue or the annual $19.99 subscription.

Olivia is on the cover of the regular, non-moving issue of Glamour as well. In the cover story she talks about her divorce from husband, and Italian prince, Tao Ruspoli. (They married when Olivia was just 18), her seven movies coming out in two years and future plans.

On her mom’s (journalist Leslie Cockburn) influence:

I never wanted to be a journalist. But I can’t tell you how profound it’s been to realize that [my mother] is so within me. She’s gorgeous, and she taught me that a real feminist doesn’t apologize for her beauty. You can be a sexy, beautiful woman and be the smartest person in the room.

On being seen as beautiful and smart in Hollywood:

With Tron, I walked in there and said, “[My character] can’t be this slinky temptress of the sci-fi world. It’s boring.” I would sit with the writers for hours. And when I did Cowboys & Aliens, the writers from Tron called them and said, “She’s going to want to talk for hours, and she’s going to want to write.” I was happy with that reputation — good! And we did.

On what she is doing next:

I’m going to Haiti to work on a documentary about a Little League team. After, I’m thinking about traveling, but I should stay in one place. I just bought a house [in L.A.]. I’ve already filled it with girlfriends who are going to live there!

On whether she’ll be in another relationship soon:

I don’t want to, but I probably will. I wish I could play the field. But it’s so not me. I go 100 percent into everything. And I’m a really good girlfriend.

Saying she is a good girlfriend coupled with that moving magazine cover is not helping me keep my thoughts professional. I’m just saying. So, intrigued by the talking cover? A tad creeped out? Don’t worry, she can’t see what you’re doing back. And that, well, that’s probably a good thing.
