The Tron: Legacy star, who divorced filmmaker/musician Tao Ruspoli last year (Sep11), has relocated from Los Angeles to Manhattan, where she shares an apartment with the comedian and their rescue dog Paco.
Wilde has been busy furnishing their new place, and admits she is relishing her less hectic schedule after a four-year stint on TV medical drama House.
She tells USA Today, ""I now have the luxury of being choosier and choosier. I've gotten to the point where I don't have to work all the time. I'm able to do things that don't need to be blockbuster... I'm really picky now and it's only because there's no reason not to be.
""I've been decorating our new apartment. That's a lot of what I do, too. I'm so domestic. We have a cool new electronic drum kit. It's a good life. For years, I worked constantly. I was doing the show and doing movies on the weekends.""
Wilde also opened up about her plans to one day start a family while maintaining her Hollywood career, modelling herself after her mum, TV producer and journalist Leslie Cockburn.
She adds, ""I think it would be great. My mom was a great example of having a professional life and having a kid. It can be done. No one is saying it's easy. But I'm totally inspired by the idea of being a bada** working professional mom.
""I'm so into my dog. I can't imagine how I will smother my child.""
