Jason Sudeikis Shared that He is Heartbroken About His Breakup With Olivia Wilde
Jason Sudeikis has shared that he is heartbroken with his breakup. But the actor has also said there is still love, and he hopes there’s a way for them to repair things. He even credited Wilde with the idea for Ted Lasso in his acceptance speech at Critics Choice Award after winning the best comedy series for Ted Lasso in 2021.
However, things again took a turn for the ex-couple when Olivia Wilde received the legal documents from Sudeikis during her presentation at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. The legal documents were regarding the custody of their kids.
Wilde later said in an interview with DailyMail that Sudeikis tried to embarrass her professionally with this. As for Sudeikis, he said that he did not intend for her to receive papers onstage.
The drama doesn’t seem to leave Olivia Wilde. Even after getting a huge response at its world premiere, Don’t Worry Darling failed to impress critics. The film has received less than average ratings, and the only things holding the film are Pugh’s performance and its cinematography.
