Olivia Wilde is enjoying life with fiancé Jason Sudeikis, admitting she's also learning how to better herself professionally with his help.
"His skill level is so high. I really have learned a lot from him, especially when it comes to being bold and taking risks as an actor within a role," she told Fashion magazine in the September 2013 issue. "Comedians are so great about trying things, like doing seven takes in seven different ways and really not being afraid to stumble."
The two, who got engaged earlier this year, were both in serious relationships prior to their involvement. Wilde divorced Tao Ruspoli in 2011, after about eight years of marriage. One year earlier, Sudeikis divorced his wife of six years, actress Kay Cannon.
"It's really hard to jump into a relationship after you feel you've been through a difficult time," Wilde's also told the magazine. "I liken it to a burn victim jumping back into a Jacuzzi. It took a lot of coaxing."
The We're The Millers star also gushed about his lady and called her "hilarious and kind and sweet," during an interview with Elle magazine in the August 2013 issue. The actor also regarded Wilde as the reason for his weight loss.
"The truth is, I'm not getting up an hour earlier and walking on a treadmill. I have the greatest workout partner in the world," he said. "And you don't need a gym membership for that kind of workout."
His workout partner is also starring in the film Rush alongside Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Dormer. In the action drama, Wilde plays Suzy Miller who is married to James Hunt (Hemsworth). Hunt was a British racing driver who won the Formula One Championship in 1976.
"My job in the film was to tell the story of James's tumultuous marriage, which was very Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? messy," she also told Fashion. "I got to wear archive Gucci head to toe through the movie."
The movie comes to U.S. theaters in September.
