While youth is a prized commodity in Tinseltown, actress Olivia Wilde is apparently looking forward to turning the big 3-0. According to Olivia in a first person piece for Glamour magazine, this new milestone will open her up for roles anywhere from age 18 to 34, so it’s really no big deal. However, on a personal level out in the real world, turning 30 has very different complications.
In an interview with “Good Morning America” lifestyle anchor Lara Spencer, Olivia referenced her last year in her 20s as well as the article she penned for Glamour, saying, “I think the great thing about being a woman, turning 30, is that you understand that you’re not living life for your parents or your peers. You’re living life for yourself.”
Olivia is definitely independent and has strong opinions about what women should and should not do as they grow older. On the list of Glamour do’s is enjoying your sexual prime and traveling more. On the list of don’ts is plastic surgery.
In the Glamour article, Olivia writes, “I am so saddened and grossed out by young women who look like creepy, old aliens because of their new Barbie noses and lips. Is that a smile or a grimace? Did you melt hot wax on your face, or is that your skin? A better approach: Take care of yourself now that you’re old enough to know how. Drink water, sleep eight hours (I wish), and don’t go within 400 feet of a tanning booth or I’ll slap you. Hard.”
Drinking water and getting plenty of sleep may be working for Olivia now, but as she ages she may need to reconsider her stance on plastic surgery as late night Hollywood parties, along with movie makeup begin to take their toll.
Although many actresses have already been under the knife by 30, this doesn’t seem to be the case for Olivia. Despite playing doctors and scientists that play with the laws of nature, Olivia doesn’t seem to have any experience with altering her own appearance with anything more than movie magic.
However, it is interesting to note that her stance against plastic surgery seems to have grown stronger with age. At the tender age of 23, Olivia seemed to have a more laissez-faire attitude toward cosmetic surgery, being quoted as saying, “Never say never.”
Olivia doesn’t share all the things she does to stay looking good, but staying active is most definitely considered a do. She shares, “You’ve already lived longer than most women in the thirteenth century, so why not look at your thirtieth as a rebirth? I started stand-up paddleboarding at 29 and consider it my baby step toward becoming a badass 30-something semipro surf goddess (as long as the sharks go vegan).”
Paddleboarding may indeed be a fountain of youth, as plenty of other gorgeous actresses have been caught attempting the balancing feat, including Jennifer Aniston.
Olivia and her nearing 30 body can be seen in two films this season, Drinking Buddies alongside fiancé Jason Sudeikis and Rush, out next month.
