Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde seem to be on good terms with each other, even after announcing in November last year that they had separated as soon as 2020 started.
Jason Sudeikis had some very kind and wholesome words to share for his now ex-partner Olivia Wilde as he thanked her for having “the initial idea” to make Ted Lasso a TV Show for which he won Best Actor in a Comedy Series during this year’s Critics Choice Awards.
Sudeikis thanked his two kids, his mother and Olivia Wilde-
“I want to thank my kids, Otis and Daisy. I want to thank their mom, Olivia, who had the initial idea to do this as a TV show. It was like, ‘You and Brendan [Hunt] and Joe [Kelly] like doing that so much, you should do it as a movie or TV show.’ I was like, ‘Nah.’ She was right.“
Olivia Wilde also tweeted her excitement for the series’ sweep at the Critics Choice Awards, tweeting –
Wilde was undoubtedly cracking a friendly joke about the hoodie that Jason accepted the award in. Interestingly, Jason Sudeikis was again seen wearing a hoodie when he accepted the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor- Television Series Musical or Comedy for the very same TV show Ted Lasso last weekend.
Why did Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde split?
News broke around November of 2020 that Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde had ended their eight-year-long engagement, with an anonymous source exclusively telling People magazine that the split occurred at the start of 2020. The source read –
“It’s been amicable and they’ve transitioned into a great co-parenting routine. The children are the priority and the heart of the family’s relationship.”
However, the plot thickened and rumors were spreading at the start of this year when Wilde was seen holding hands with Harry Styles. Outlets went crazy and started speculating that Sudeikis and Wilde’s split was way more dramatic than it was claimed to be and that Wilde’s growingly close relationship with Harry Styles was the very reason Sudeikis and Wilde split.
But considering the Critics Choice Awards gesture that Wilde put out along with Sudeikis’s thanks to Wilde in his speech, it seems that they’re on good terms with each other.
