Olivia Wilde does not judge Kim Kardashian for her 72-day marriage.

The "Butter" star finalized her own high-profile divorce from Italian aristocrat Tao Ruspoli in October.

Wilde said at a New York afterparty for "Another Happy Day," "I empathize. It's not easy. It's the hardest thing in the world."
