Olivia Wilde covers Allure's October issue, dishing on her refreshing view of fame (and its drawbacks), the truth about how she met fiancee Jason Sudeikis and why it makes her sad to see people neglecting the pleasure of food and resorting to "cardboard" (we totally agree!).

Inspired by her new movie Rush, the photo shoot takes place in the mountains of California and has Olivia clad in all leather, wearing a sparkling gold helmet and some seriously cool sunglasses/racing goggles. And as far as cool goes, Olivia may be one of the coolest stars in Hollywood. Why? Because she sees fame as just a drawback to having "made it" in her industry. She's just doing what she loves, and dealing with everything that comes with it.

So what is it that brought her and Jason Sudeikis together? Funnily enough, though Olivia was charmed by his dancing skills, it took a friend's push. "I met Jason, and I thought he was so charming. He's a great dancer and I'm a sucker for great dancers," Olivia said. "But he didn't even get my number. Over the next six months we kept running into each other. [One night] my best guy friend walked up to him and said, 'This is Olivia's number. Use it.' That was the beginning."
