Olivia Wilde may be super feminine (not to mention really gorgeous!) now, but she insists this wasn’t always the case and in fact, she actually went through a pretty awkward punk phase full of shaved hair and heavy makeup that makes her cringe to look back on.
“I don’t think there’s one picture from growing up where I don’t think, ‘Ugh, awful!’ If I ever have a daughter who starts experimenting with heavy makeup or shaving her hair like I did, I would encourage it and say, ‘Do it all now, you’ll learn yourself well.’”
“I did that awful gutterpunk undershave look when I was 12. Not an easy grow back process. It looked like I got run over by a tractor. But my mom had a good response to that stuff; I didn’t even need to be punished, I learned that one on my own.”
Ouch, sounds rough! However, haven’t we all been there? I don’t think anyone looks back on childhood photos and thinks they had it really together and looked super cool. That’s the fun part of growing up, right? For what it’s worth, she looks amazing now!
