Jason Sudeikis Opens Up About His Split From Olivia Wilde

Jason Sudeikis broke his silence on his split from Olivia Wilde, which he confirmed occurred in November 2020. "I'll have a better understanding of why in a year," Sudeikis told the magazine. "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 said. "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."

"I was neither high nor heartbroken," Sudeikis clarified, telling GQ that the reason he wore a hoodie was because it was late at night and he simply didn't feel like wearing a suit. "So yeah, off it came and it was like, 'This is how I feel. I believe in moving forward.'"
