Olivia Wilde is Marie Claire's April cover girl, and in the accompanying interview, she's more than willing to gush about her feelings for fiancé Jason Sudeikis.

Calling the Saturday Night Live star "the great love of [her] life," she recalls how he couldn't make eye contact with her when they first met at the SNL finale in 2011.

"We were both seeing people but were single. He seemed to really see me, see through the bull****," she says. "He was so cool, so funny -- I was such a fan of his and had always fancied his speed and his intelligence. He's a brilliant actor with a brain like lightning."

And though the 29-year-old Tron: Legacy actress is renowned for her good looks, she confesses to initially not feeling "beautiful enough" for her future fiancé.

"I felt like fresh meat at the market ... I thought, I'm not beautiful enough or his type. I couldn't wait to sit down and hear him talk. On our first date, in New York City, we closed the restaurant down at 2 a.m.! He didn't kiss me, and I was madly in love. I was overwhelmed."

Wilde dishes that she "can't wait" to have kids with the 37-year-old comedian.

"We've discussed all our ideals and hopes. I can't wait for children," she says. "I'm open-minded about how many, but three, which I love, is like a little party. I am not trying to have kids now -- there's no strict plan for anything in my life. What happens, happens. He's so good with kids."
