Oliva Wilde isn’t exactly mourning the end of her marriage to Italian prince Tao Ruspoli.
In the June issue of Glamour, the 27-year-old Cowboys & Aliens star says that although their eight-year union is over, she has nothing but fond memories of their time together.
“The mark of a good marriage is partnership and continuing to feel inspired by your spouse. I had that with Tao,” Wilde explains. “But the end is not necessarily the tragedy. Staying in a relationship that is no longer working is the tragedy. Living unhappily — that’s the tragedy.”
The actress — who’s been spotted out with Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake in recent months — admits she’s ready to give love another chance.
“I’m opening up my heart to the idea of dating. It’s funny — my friends would always come to me for romantic advice, but I know nothing, and things have changed since I was dating in high school,” she laughs. “I’m really trying hard to spend this time working on myself.”
