Olivia Wilde

71st Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Olivia married at a young age and believes she learned from the experience even though it didn’t last: “I really had a sense that I had stunted my growth. I think that’s one of the things that made me feel so uncomfortable in my marriage. It was really no fault of my husband. It was me realizing that I had sort of arrested development. I knew the only way I was going to grow the f**k up was to learn to take care of myself.”

Billy Bob Thornton

Billy has regrets about marrying and starting a family so young: “I should not have married and become a father so young. It is not fair on your wife and kid, because I still had so much to do. And perhaps I never did learn the lesson on marriage since I’ve been married five times.”

Ozzy Osbourne
56th Annual Grammy Awards - Arrivals

Ozzy regrets rushing in to marriage: “I got married at 21. I thought that’s what you did. You get married, you have a house and live together until you die. But I was like a married bachelor. I shouldn’t have done it. My son Jack is getting married at 27. I thought it was terribly young, but I was married with two kids by then.”

Kirsten Dunst
24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards - Arrivals

Kirsten says she simply is too young to marry: “I don’t have anyone special in my life right now and, honestly, I’m not ready to get married. I think I have a lot to learn before I make such a huge life choice.”

Scarlett wed young and says that it was very romantic but ultimately it didn’t work out: “I got married when I was young and it was incredibly romantic and I liked being married, actually, but it is different. It’s hard to put into words. To me, being in a functioning relationship doesn’t mean you have to be married. Is that weird?”
