Olivia Wilde defends Kim Kardashian




Newly-divorced actress Olivia Wilde is urging fans not to "judge" Kim Kardashian for ending her marriage after just 72 days, as a split should not be seen as a "failure".

Wilde's divorce from filmmaker/musician Tao Ruspoli was finalised in September (11) and the Tron: Legacy star admits she feels sorry for Kardashian, whose split from sportsman Kris Humphries last month (Oct11) made headlines across the world.

She tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "I empathise. It's not easy. It's the hardest thing in the world. People judge you because divorce is seen as failure. (Kardashian) took a risk. No one should be attacking her. Our attention should be focused on things that are truly scandalous."
