Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis got engaged earlier this year, and the “Incredible Burt Wonderstone” beauty is opening up about her first meeting with her now-fiance.
“I was just learning to be by myself,” Olivia told Marie Claire for their April issue, of having recently gotten a divorce from ex-husband Tao Ruspoli when she met Jason in 2011. “We were both seeing people but were single. He seemed to really see me, see through the bulls**t. He said very few words and couldn’t keep eye contact. He was so handsome, and he could dance.”
It was six months after their first meeting before Olivia and the “Saturday Night Live” funnyman went on their first date and the actress said she didn’t think she was “beautiful enough” for Jason.
“He was so cool, so funny – I was such a fan of his and had always fancied his speed and his intelligence. He’s a brilliant actor with a brain like lightening,” she said. “I couldn’t wait to sit down and hear him talk. On our first date, in New York City, we closed the restaurant down at 2 AM! He didn’t kiss me, and I was madly in love. I was overwhelmed.”
The couple soon moved in together and is now set to wed. Olivia also said she expects to expand their family.
“I can’t wait for children. I’m open-minded about how many, but three, which I love, is like a little party,” Olivia revealed. “[Jason] is so good with kids… I’ve never before experienced looking at someone and thinking,’ That’s who I want to raise a child with.’”
