Olivia Wilde Has Some Advice on Turning 30: Drink Water, Travel and Be Good to Your Body

Olivia Wilde still has some seven months before turning the big 3-0, but it sounds like she’s all ready to go for this next milestone.

In a “Dos and Don’ts” piece for Glamour, the future Mrs. Jason Sudeikis is anything but freaked out about turning 30.

I’m thrilled about this impending development (I might finally grow boobs!), but my brain has some catching up to do (I’m gobsmacked when bartenders refuse to ask for my ID),” she writes.

Here are our favorite pointers from Wilde’s piece:

Don’t let those who’ve achieved more than by 30 bother you.

“What do you want people to say at your funeral: ‘Olivia may have cured HIV, but she ran over my cat and drove away laughing’? No, thanks! I’d rather be a good person who makes people happy than a dick who wins a Nobel by 32.”

Travel (wisely).

“You’re old enough to know where not to go (Cancun) but young enough to feel guilt-free being entirely unreachable.”

Say no to cosmetic surgery.

“I’m so saddened and grossed out by young women who look like creepy, old aliens because of their new Barbie noses and lips . . . take care of yourself now that you’re old enough to know how. Drink water, sleep eight hours (I wish) and don’t go within 400 feet of a tanning booth or I’ll slap you. Hard.”

Sleep is a good thing.

“You’re 30: You know stuff now . . . Never again will I convince myself that sleep is for sissies and go straight from a party to the airport. You will not ‘sleep on the plane’; you’ll vomit in the security line. Go to bed.”

For many more words of wisdom from Olivia Wilde, head over to Glamour. And happy 30th to those turning 30 this year and next.

Her next film, Drinking Buddies, opens in theaters Aug. 23. Trailer below.
