"I met Jason, and I thought he was so charming. He's a great dancer and I'm a sucker for great dancers. But he didn't even get my number," Wilde told Allure for their October issue.

"I trust everyone to not leak any information," she said. "I just hope no one ends up flying a stupid helicopter over it or anything dumb like that."

"Yes, Einstein had discovered the theory of relativity by your age, and Emily Brontë had written Wutheringf***ing Heights, but honestly, what you achieve is far less important than what kind of human being you are," the actress recently told Glamour.
