Wilde was told to lie about marriage

The House star wed guitarist Tao Ruspoli six years ago, when she was just 19, before she’d landed her big break on TV show The O.C., and she admits casting bosses advised her to hide her relationship, so she would appear attainable to male fans.

The actress refused, and eventually proved the sceptics wrong – scooping roles in The O.C., House and movie Year One.

Wilde tells GQ magazine, “There were times when people thought it would really hurt me. People said I shouldn’t be married, or (I should) lie about being married.”
