Olivia Wilde has always seemed like a fun-loving girl, the kind who knows how to party.

But she's learned over the years that there's a limit to just how far she can go.

"I think the worst mistake I've made while drunk is to think I can just keep going, go straight all night—and then just get right on an airplane!" she told E! News at the L.A. premiere of her new comedy, Drinking Buddies (featuring Jason Sudeikis in the pivotal role of her boss, BTW).

"You know, when you're like," Wilde described, feigning the voice of a person who's had a few too many, "'I'll just stay up! I'll just stay up 'cause the plane's early, it's great, we'll just stay up!'"

Be sure to watch the clip to see her act this out—a summary can't really do it  justice.

Wilde also revealed how her fiancé ended up in the movie. Shocker: She just asked!

"I roped him in," the actress said about getting Sudeikis to play a small part in Drinking Buddies, which also stars Jake Johnson, Anna Kendrick and Ron Livingston.

"He came to visit me in Chicago, he was about to go shoot We're the Millers," Wilde recalled. "I said, 'Listen, we don't have anyone to play my boss, can you just come improvise with me for an hour?' and he's like, 'Yeah, all right!'"

Obviously Sudeikis' arm didn't need to be twisted.
