Jason Sudeikis has spoken for the first time about his relationship breakdown and split from Olivia Wilde, who is now romancing former One Direction singer Harry Styles
Jason Sudeikis has broken his silence on his split from Olivia Wilde, who has since been pictured romancing with One Direction singer Harry Styles.
The 45-year-old actor and co-creator of Ted Lasso, has spoken out in an interview with GQ about the ending of his relationship with actress Olivia after being engaged for seven years.
He said that they split last November and that they no longer live together.
Speaking about the reasons why they went their separate ways, Jason said: “I’ll have a better understanding of why in a year.
“And an even better one in two, and an even greater one in five.”

Jason went to add that as time goes by, the time of his life with Olivia will become a smaller footnote.
He said: “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.”
Rather than blaming Olivia for them drifting apart, Jason has said that he is hoping to use the split as a life lesson and will reflect on what happened and look to grow his personality from the experience.
Jason continued: “That’s an experience that you either learn from or make excuses about.
“You take some responsibility for it, hold yourself accountable for what you do, but then also endeavour to learn something beyond the obvious from it.”
Despite the pair moving on with other relationships, Jason and Olivia have said they are committed to co-parenting their children, son Otis, seven, and daughter Daisy, four.
They have added that their split is amicable and that there has been no animosity between them.

A source has said that they have “transitioned into a great co-parenting routine.”
Speaking about returning to his home in New York City, after spending time in London filming Ted Lasso, he said the kids were loving the changes that had been made since they were last there, two years ago.
Jason said: “Last time Daisy was in that house, she slept in a crib. So now she has a new big bed. It was hilarious. I walked up there after like 15 minutes and both rooms were a mess.”
