Olivia Wilde revealed on Tuesday’s “Howard Stern Show” how fiance Jason Sudeikis played a “long game” to seduce her and win her heart. Listen below to audio from the interview!

Wilde noted on Stern’s radio show that she met Sudeikis at a “Saturday Night Live” after-party, where she was “swaying on the dance floor” by herself. The actress then revealed that the former cast member walked up to her and said, “Whatever you’re looking for, you don’t need it,” and then abruptly walked away. “He’s smooth. It was definitely a line… I was like, ‘He understands me,'” Wilde said.

The actress then admitted to being a fan of Sudeikis’ before they ever met, but when their mutual friends Kristen Wiig and Jason Bateman tried to set them up, she was hesitant. “I was like, ‘I don’t know. He dates really, really pretty girls,'” the actress explained. Among the comedic actor’s former flames were Rosario Dawson and January Jones. As for why he never hooked up with Wiig, Wilde explained, “They were like brother and sister… They had been working together for so long.”

Wilde went on to recount how sometime after their brief encounter she randomly ran into Sudeikis on the streets of New York City. “He played it really cool,” the actress said. “When he got my number, he didn’t text me for a month. I was on the hook. I was like, ‘Did Jason Sudeikis die because I don’t have any texts.'” But when the actor did finally text, she described his message as being “witty and perfectly timed.”

“It was kind of sweet. He literally didn’t kiss me until the fourth date,” Wilde revealed about their courtship, before joking, “I was like, ‘Oh no, he’s gay.'” She added, “He was so smart. He just knew how to get me on the hook.”

Wilde also divulged to Stern that when Sudeikis ultimately kissed her, she “was totally head over heels.” Finally, the radio show host asked when the engaged couple, who share a nearly two-year-old son, were going to get married. Wilde didn’t give a date, but revealed, “We want more kids. I can’t wait to have more.” Listen below to Wilde’s interview on the “Howard Stern Show.”
