The Tron: Legacy star married filmmaker/musician Tao Ruspoli in 2003, at the age of 19, but the couple split at the end of 2010 after eight years of marriage.
Wilde filed for divorce in March (11), and on Thursday (29Sep11) the legal documents were finalised.
Since her split from Ruspoli, the actress has been romantically linked to stars including Bradley Cooper, Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake.
The TRON: Legacy star ended her marriage with filmmaker Ruspoli in February (11) and Wilde admits she began eating animal products again because it helped her cope with the break-up stress.
She tells America's Cosmopolitan magazine, "I actually really like healthy food. I was hardcore vegan for years. When everything in my life became a little hectic, going through the divorce and everything afterward, I was like, 'I need some goddamn cheese.' And so I had some cheese."
The Tron: Legacy beauty split from her ex, Italian prince Tao Ruspoli, at the end of 2010 after nine years of marriage.
But Wilde, who has recently been linked to a host of Hollywood heartthrobs including Bradley Cooper, is stunned at how much the dating world has changed thanks to the rising popularity of social networking.
The 27-year-old actress tells Nylon magazine, "Dating is new to me. I see the whole thing like someone who's been in a coma and I've come out like, 'Wait, people text message? They text love? How do you text about love?' 'Three Xs and a smiley face? Emoticon? Deal breaker!'"
"I got a divorce and self-medicated with food. But I figure that's better than self-medicating with crack cocaine." Actress Olivia Wilde is indulging in her favourite foods to get over her split from Italian prince Tao Ruspoli earlier this year (11).
"He's a hard act to follow. I was really lucky to be with someone who let me be me." Actress Olivia Wilde is grateful to her ex, Italian prince Tao Ruspoli, for their nine years of marriage. The couple split last year (10).
"I kept saying, 'I failed!' Admitting that I'm not perfect was a wonderful thing that came out of this. There's this fear that everyone is going to be disappointed in you, but I'm human. I don't live up to any sort of ideal." Actress Olivia Wilde felt a sense of relief after publicly announcing her split and subsequent divorce from Italian prince Tao Ruspoli.
The Tron: Legacy star split from Ruspoli at the end of last year (10) and began divorce proceedings in March (11).
She's adamant the break-up was amicable, but felt it necessary to walk away from the marriage when she realised it was taking too much effort to keep it together.
She tells Marie Claire magazine, "After really trying to make the relationship evolve in the way our lives had, I realised it wasn't a natural evolution.
"When the relationship becomes about working to make it work, it's lost that beauty and that optimistic bohemian sense that brought us together. I don't think love should be work. My parents have been married for 35 years. They said, 'You have to work at it. That's what it takes.' But we tried, and it wasn't making us happy.
"In the end, maybe it's just that I'm a ridiculous romantic. I have very high standards for every part of life - my work, my relationships, food, love. I can't just pretend."
The House star filed for divorce from Italian prince Tao Ruspoli in March (11) and, although the breakdown of the nine-year union has hit her hard personally, Wilde insists it has done wonders for her career.
She tells Marie Claire magazine, "It makes you a more empathetic person, and I think it's made me a better actress. Weakness is something we don't like to admit we have. We hold it against people, until we experience it, and then we feel more compassion for it.
"David Shore, who created House, said, 'You should get divorced every year; your acting's never been better!'"
The Tron: Legacy star, 27, filed for divorce from Italian prince Ruspoli in March (11) and she admits the breakdown of her nine-year marriage has hit her hard.
She tells Marie Claire magazine, "The trauma of the whole thing has been humbling, and, for the first time, I'm a little bit wobbly. But I think it's very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person."
Wilde claims she is still on good terms with her rocker ex and she is still close to his royal relatives.
She says, "Even though it (marriage) didn't work, there's nothing I regret about any of it. We're friends; his family is my family."
And Wilde has played down dating reports that have linked her to eligible Hollywood bachelors like Justin Timberlake, Bradley Cooper and Ryan Reynolds in recent months.
She adds, "You go on one date and everyone thinks you're (seriously) dating."
They say that every cloud has a silver lining and apparently Olivia Wilde is taking that phrase to heart. The actress graces the cover of the newest Marie Claire issue and claims that getting divorced from her husband of 8 years, Tao Ruspoli, has its upsides stating, "It makes you a more empathetic person, and I think it's made me a better actress." So divorce equals better acting skills...does Jennifer Aniston know about this? Apparently the Cowboys and Aliens star isn't the only one to notice her higher caliber of acting. According to Wilde, she's gotten kudos from David Shore, the creator of House, saying, "You should get divorced every year; your acting's never been better!" Umm...thanks, I guess.
Wilde married the Italian prince when she was only 18 years old, but the couple both parted on excellent terms. "We're friends; his family is my family. You always have a choice to feel angry and not be friends. But I can't handle the idea of walking into a room and seeing someone I have bad blood with. I can't keep any negative relationship with anyone," says Wilde. Sounds like a mature and responsible philosophy. Not very realistic, but the concept is nice. Wilde claims she had a hunch their elopement was a risk right from the start confessing, "Our deal from the beginning was,'We're crazy to do this, but we're doing it because we're in love and it makes us happy. The only reason to divorce is if one of us isn't happy. Life is too short.'" The actress doesn't take divorce lightly though and doesn't think it should just be the automatic solution to any problem, but "After really trying to make the relationship evolve in the way our lives had, I realized it wasn't a natural evolution." In other words, they grew apart.
Entering the dating world again is never easy, even for this stunning star. Wilde says dating is scary and admits, "I'm trying to be adult, entering the shark pool of dating, but I'm hopeless at it!" The actress has recently been linked to a bevy of Hollywood hunks including Bradley Cooper, Justin Timberlake, and Ryan Gosling. So far it sounds like she's handling the dating world just fine.
