Olivia Wilde On “Emirates Woman” Magazine

Just weeks removed from the theatrical release of her latest film “People Like Us”, Olivia Wilde garnered herself a little overseas exposure by covering the July 2012 issue of Emirates Woman.

The 28-year-old actress brought her sophisticated charm to the magazine scenic spread while dishing about everything from her Revlon gig to having no regrets about her divorce from ex Tao Ruspoli.

On being a spokeswoman for Revlon:
“I’ve always admired Revlon and their commitment to giving women the confidence and tools they need to feel beautiful, both inside and out. Creatively, Revlon has never been afraid to push the envelope, which is important to me. It’s exciting to join a company with a big heart and big ideas.”

On being in such a competitive industry:
“The main hurdle that sums up all the others is how to understand and accept learning rejection.”

On getting divorced from Tao Ruspoli:
“The mark of a good marriage is partnership and feeling inspired by your spouse. The end is not necessarily the tragedy. Living unhappily, that is the tragedy. We’re friends; his family is my family.”
