Olivia Wilde Was "Very Sexually Mature" in Her Youth

Before Olivia Wilde began dating Saturday Night Live's Jason Sudeikis, the 27-year-old beauty was linked to a bevy of Hollywood hunks, including Justin Timberlake, Bradley Cooper and Ryan Gosling.

In the April issue of British GQ, the Butter star explains how being such a man magnet has affected her acting career.

"I was very sexually mature at a very young age," Wilde says. "I was very comfortable with it and talking about it, and once someone hears a young woman speak candidly about sexuality, it's like, 'Whoa!' You get labelled."

Wilde even "pulled out" of the Linda Lovelace biopic because she wanted to be viewed in a different light. "I decided that it should go to someone who is not already sexualized by the public -- Linda Lovelace was an innocent. Amanda [Seyfried] will do an amazing job."

The actress also opens up about her 2011 divorce from Italian prince Tao Ruspoli, calling it a "peaceful parting" because "there were no kids involved."

"We could see it as this wonderful chapter," Wilde tells British GQ. "And anyway, you fall in love again. Oh God, to think that you only fall in love once in your entire life is such a depressing thought."
