1. My name's Olivia Wilde, nice to meet you.

Hello. My name is Olivia Wilde, and if your reading this, your about to encounter the roller coster ride that is my life. I won't sit here and tell you I've had a difficult life, because I haven't. I won't sit here and tell you all about the millions of hopeless relationships I've had, because I haven't. What I will sit here and do, is tell you about my struggle to succeed, and, well, a few unexpected loves along the way.

Being born in the countryside of England, to a hard working family, I would regard myself as just a normal girl. I think everyone who knows me would say I was just a normal girl. Looking back on my life, I can remember my first, very shy days at school very well. Instead of running around like care free 5 year olds do, I sat in the corner. By myself. Afraid to speak to anyone, or do anything with anyone. I won't lie, however much I wish I wasn't, I'm not a people person. I loved to avoid social situations, and would rarely go to crowded places. I had wished and pretended for so long that I loved being a people person, but that just wasn't who I was. Anyway, back to school. Coming to the age of 8, that was the first time I had experienced bullies. It was also the last time. It wasn't severe, and I'm not trying to make another cliche sob story, but being called a 'little bitch' and a 'twat' at that tender age wasn't the nicest thing to deal with. It hurt, a lot. As soon as my parents heard about it from me, through my tears, it was there main priority to get me out of the school. They've always protected me like that, maybe sometimes a little too much, but I knew they always meant well. My new school was the first time I'd properly felt safe. With not many girls to become friends with, I had a lot of friends that were guys. If I was older, I'd be labeled a 'slut' or 'flirt', but at 11 years old, kids don't worry about things like that. If only the care free spirit would last forever.

Moving up to secondary school at the age of 11 was tough. Really tough. I hardly knew anyone, and being protected from the outside world before moving up came as a big shock, having to catch a public bus at 8am every morning. Also the kind of people you get in Secondary schools are scary, especially when the seem twice your size. Spending that first year of hopelessly trying to find friends was the toughest year of my life. So far. Finally In year 8, I found my feet and that all changed. For the first time, I had managed to make some friends. And not the kind of friends you only like for a year or two, true friends. They stood by me through everything. Well, most of them did. I then finally began to release a confidence that had been missing for the past 13 years of my life. Moving up in the school into year 9, and having a good secure group of friends, that's when my new found confidence turned into cockiness. And that pissed off a lot of people. I had never liked teachers, but when my quiet bitchy comments about them turned into full on arguments in front of my class, that's when I started getting into trouble. It was weird, in just a couple of years of secondary school, it had changed me from a sweet, innocent girl who didn't speak to people in case they would hate her, too a cocky, trouble causing...bitch. I guess that what happens when you spend most of your days with other kids who smoke weed, and threaten each other with knifes, and got into fights everyday. But to me, back then, it seemed normal. Now, I realised, it's far from.

The next couple of years were the the most important ones of my life. So far.

Barely passing school with mostly C's, I struggled to find a job. Turning to my parents for the desperate help I needed, they suggested I should use the one good talent I had been hiding away for 17 years. My voice. I never thought i was any good, but starting in bars, and pubs, I sang basic covers of pop songs, and earned a little bit of money at the same time. Not enough to live off, but unlike most things I'd done up to that point, I was determined, and stuck at it.

Before I knew it, I was 18 and singing at a popular club in Manchester. After the show and a small round of applause, a tall, aged man approached me backstage. With his fitted suit, and shiny shoes, I guessed he was of some importance. Gut records manager. Before I knew it, I was signed to a small, upcoming label. Gut records.

I began to write more than enough songs to fit on an album with Gut, and more importantly began to record them. It felt like I had finally made something of my life, like I had shown everyone who ever doubted me. 1 year after I signed my name on that dotted line, the label went under. And I had 2 weeks to find a new one before they kept thei
rights to every song I wrote with them. The next 2 weeks were the worst of my life. So far.

Depression. It seems such an insignificant word, but it effected me more than anyone could predict it would. I thought about giving up, running away...suicide. That's when, when I needed it most, Simon saved me. Simon Cowell. With 2 days to go before I had to find a new label, he signed me to Syco records. Not having much experience with a major label, I was scared. Terrified. I didn't even know how long he'd keep me on the label, I didn't know if he'd even think I was any good. My first major performance was going to be on the semi-final of the X-Factor 2010. and it was finally secured. I had only 1 week until I hit the most watched stage on tv. I could of never expected who I'd meet there. 5 boys who would change my life forever. I'm not sure still if it was for better or worse. 1 of them in particular changed it more than the others. His name? Harry Styles.
