Olivia Wilde: I Was "Very Sexually Mature" at an Early Age

Olivia Wilde is routinely called one of Hollywood's hottest actresses, and the star tells British GQ she was keenly aware of her sex appeal from a young age.

"I was very sexually mature at a very young age," Wilde says in the April issue of the U.K. men's magazine. "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."

The Butter star, who's currently dating Saturday Night Live funnyman Jason Sudeikis, explains how she even "pulled out" of the upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic starring Amanda Seyfried because of the way she's perceived.

"I decided that it should go to someone who is not already sexualized by the public -- Linda Lovelace was an innocent. Amanda will do an amazing job."

Wilde, 27, even opens up about her 2011 divorce from Italian prince Tao Ruspoli, whom she married at age 19 in 2003. She describes their split as a "peaceful parting" because "there were no kids involved."

"We could see it as this wonderful chapter," says Wilde, who's also been romantically linked (in the rumor mill) to Justin Timberlake, Bradley Cooper and Ryan Gosling since her marriage ended. "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."
