OLIVIA Wilde's mother taught her how to be sexy.

The 'Tron: Legacy' actress - whose mum, Leslie Cockburn, is a producer on CBS news show '60 Minutes'- explained her mother was instrumental in teaching her the art of being "sexy and attractive" but also "the smartest person in the room".

She said: "My mum taught me a lot. Especially about how, as a woman, you can be sexy and attractive and yet still be the smartest person in the room."

However, Olivia's mother is not the only person to have an impact on her life.

The 27-year-old beauty admitted 'House' co-star Hugh Laurie taught her how to be aware of "little things" when she is portraying certain roles.

Olivia added to Culture magazine: "Hugh taught me how, as an actor, you need to be aware of little things, like how people usually look upwards when entering a room.

"Hugh is hilarious and arguably one of the best actors working today. I think I have learnt more from him in the past four years than I have from anybody else.
