Olivia Wilde on divorce: "I felt like my vagina died"

Jezebel

Speaking at a Glamour magazine event in New York last night, moviestar Olivia Wilde showed just why she's one of Hollywood's Favourite Young Liberals - with a Twitter account to match. Jezebel reports on the "perpetually pleasant-seeming" star.

Wilde performed a piece on the divorce from her husband of 8 years, dropping in this bombshell: "I felt like my vagina died. Turned off. Lights out ... And you can lie to your relatives at Christmas dinner and tell them everything on the home front is just peachy. But you cannot lie to your vagina."

"Here, here", says Madeleine Davis. "The vagina is like the polygraph machine of the body: twitchy, stressful and inadmissible in a court of law."

Also in the crowd was Wilde's boyfriend Jason Sudeikis, who explained his partners' unconventional attitude to relationships: "In Olivia Land, relationships can legally only last seven years, without an option to renew. That way it never goes stale.

Can you imagine, if we only had seven years? We'd be so nice to each other, so kind, and appreciative and enthusiastic, like we were eating a really expensive bowl of pasta! And in Olivia Land people wouldn't cheat nearly as much because there wouldn't be the threat of spending forever with one bedfellow. It just wouldn't be legal. There's the issue of kids. Okay this is fun.

In Olivia Land, all the kids go to boarding school at seven. It's like in Harry Potter!"

Jezebel sums up: "I'm not so sure about this Olivia Land thing, but I am very sure that I want to go out and get drunk with Olivia Wilde."
