Olivia Wilde: I Self-Medicate With Food

June 4, 2012

Olivia Wilde is opening up about her divorce and revealed that her weight fluctuated quite a bit after her split from her ex-husband. 

"I lost a bunch of weight and I was really never sleeping... I moved in with a girlfriend and she said, 'You don't sleep; you sleep three hours a night!'" Wilde said. "Then you go through a period where you're self-medicating with something to fill a void because you have created a void by removing someone from you." 

In Wilde's case, food was her drug of choice. 

"I definitely self-medicate with food, that's my thing; I love to cook," she said. "I always convince myself, 'It's better than crack cocaine, so I guess it's okay.' Food is like a hug on the inside."
