Olivia Wilde: Vagina, Sex Comments Taken Out of “Context,” Were “Performance Art”

Olivia Wilde is calling out the media for allegedly taking some very personal comments out of context.

The actress, who spoke quite candidly about her sex life in a self-penned monologue at Glamour magazine’s “These Girls” event in New York City on Monday, is apparently upset that her remarks were published.

Although Wilde never named names in her speech, many assumed she was talking about the demise of her marriage to Tao Ruspoli when she commented, “I felt like my vagina died. It just turned off. Lights out.”

“And you can lie to your relatives at Christmas dinner and tell them everything on the home front is just peachy. But you cannot lie to your vagina,” she is quote as saying.

When she finally decided on divorce in March of 2011, “She looked up at me and said, ‘Oh, you think?’” Wilde reportedly recalled to the star-studded audience.

Wilde is also said to have discussed being “blissfully, hopefully, wildly in love” with new beau Jason Sudeikis, who was in attendance, and admitting that they “have sex like Kenyan marathon runners.”

But according to the former “House” star, her words weren’t meant to be taken at face value — or repeated.

She wrote on Twitter Tuesday night, “The ‘These Girls’ monologues at Joe’s Pub were not meant for publication, and, in context, were a celebration of LOVE, girls, and honesty.”

“Sneaky recorders are everywhere these days, but performance art doesn’t always translate accurately to tabloid interpretation,” she added.

What do you think of Wilde’s tweets? Is she right to be upset about the comments being published?
