“I’ll have a better understanding of why in a year,” Sudeikis claimed of the breakup, “and an even better one in two, and an even greater one in five” Jason Sudeikis is breaking the ice and being open about his call-off engagement with his ex-fiancée Olivia Wilde.
While talking to GQ for their August cover story, the “Ted Lasso” star opens up about his breakup from Wilde, both share children: Otis, 7, and Daisy, 4.
The ex-couple — who split in 2020 fall, split after a long period of seven years together –started dating each other in November 2011 and got engaged in January 2013. While talking to GQ, Sudeikis, 45, inveterate that he and Wilde, 37, named it quits “in November 2020.”
“I’ll have a better understanding of why in a year,” Sudeikis said of the split, “and an even better one in two, and an even greater one in five, and it’ll go from being, you know, a book of my life to becoming a chapter to a paragraph to a line to a word to a doodle.”
“That’s an experience that you either learn from or make excuses about,” he added. “You take some responsibility for it, hold yourself accountable for what you do, but then also endeavor to learn something beyond the obvious from it.”
In February 2021, a month later Wilde first flickered romance rumors with Harry Styles, 27, Sudeikis made captions over his viral virtual appearance at the 2021 Golden Globes. While taking the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Musical, or Comedy for his performance in “Ted Lasso,” the actor put on a tie-dye hoodie and gave a strange speech in which he walked on.
Sudeikis’ clothing and conduct raised questions, with some fans even take risks that he was drugged. Sudeikis set the record amidst his interview with GQ and first elucidated why he decided to wear the hoodie, rather than the suit Tom Ford sent him.
“I wore that hoodie because I didn’t wanna f—— wear the f——- top half of a Tom Ford suit,” he explained. “I love Tom Ford suits. But it felt weird as s—” About the speech, Sudeikis said, “I was neither high nor heartbroken.” He simply just didn’t want to wear a suit and it was very late. (He was at his flat in London at the time, while the ceremony was broadcasted from locations in Los Angeles and New York.)
“So yeah, off it came and it was like, ‘This is how I feel. I believe in moving forward,'” he said. The ex- “Saturday Night Star” later imitated on the past year, toofab stated. “I think if you have the opportunity to hit a rock bottom, however you define that, you can become 412 bones or you can land like an Avenger,” he told GQ. “I have chosen to land like an Avenger.”
“It doesn’t mean when you blast back up you’re not going to run into a bunch of s—- and have to, you know, fight things to get back to the heights that you were at, but I’d take that over 412 bones anytime,” he continued.
“But there is power in creating 412 bones! Because we all know that a bone, up to a certain age, when it heals, it heals stronger,” Sudeikis concluded. “So, I mean, it’s not to knock anybody that doesn’t land like an Avenger. Because there’s strength in that too.”
