Ever since Don’t Worry Darling hit the theatres, filmmaker Olivia Wilde has been wrapped up in controversies from head to toe. Even before the movie got released, she had incessantly been the center of attention with regard to various conflicts and rumors.
Amongst all the elaborate scandals associated with the director and various other cast members of the film, one topic that was the subject of immense chatter, was that of Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde becoming an exclusive couple. But one fact that often went unnoticed with regard to it was that the latter had broken up with her long-time engaged beau when she started dating the pop sensation instead.
Jason Sudeikis recently opened up about the same as he talked about how heartbroken he was when that happened.
Jason Sudeikis was in pain after his breakup with Olivia Wilde
Before Olivia Wilde was spotted having heart eyes for the famous musician Harry Styles, she had been engaged to the Horrible Bosses star, Jason Sudeikis for a long period of 7 years and even had two children together during the course of their engagement.
But the couple went their own ways in November 2020, and shortly after that, Wilde was seen sparking romance rumors with her co-star, Harry Styles. And it looks like Sudeikis was absolutely torn about that.
The We’re the Millers actor was crestfallen after the Booksmart director decided she wanted an out from their relationship. A nanny who used to look after Sudeikis and Wilde’s kids stated that Sudeikis had been inconsolable and had a major breakdown as well. He was “a mess,” she recalled.
That’s not all though, for the comedian had also gone to great lengths to prevent his now ex-fiance from meeting Harry Styles. And boy, did he have a flair for the dramatics.
Jason Sudeikis tried his best to stop Olivia Wilde from seeing Harry Styles
Recently, the nanny who used to work for the ex-couple recalled a series of events involving the former doing everything in his power to stop his fiance from going to meet Styles. Literally.
The Ted Lasso star had apparently been so blinded by the dangerous combination of love and loss that he threw himself in front of Wilde’s car just so that she wouldn’t go and see the Sign of the Times singer.

When the actress was getting ready to see her new beau at that time, an already hurt Sudeikis felt even more bitter and tried to do all he could to stop that from happening. According to the nanny’s recollections, the night Wilde was leaving, “Jason had chased after her.”
The Tron: Legacy star had claimed that she was afraid of Sudeikis, to which the latter didn’t respond all too nicely. As per the nanny, he had said, “f you’re scared of me, why are you leaving your kids with me?” “So then, Jason went outside and lay under her car so she wouldn’t leave,” she added. “She got in her car to back up, he lay under her car so she wouldn’t leave.”
The nanny also claimed that Sudeikis had mentioned how he was “doing it on purpose to make her late going to see Harry.” All because Wilde allegedly made her “special salad dressing” and took it to Styles. Talk about hysterical.
