Jason couldn't hide that there were tears in his eyes when he spoke with GQ, but the actor won't go into details as to why they decided on a breakup after two years of marriage together. The 45-year-old says only one thing was clear for him: "I don’t have complete clarity yet."
Jason Sudeikis has finally broken his silence on the unfortunate and much-anticipated end of his relationship with Olivia Wilde, 36. The 45-year old actor admitted that even he had a difficult time understanding what happened to their happy union. "I don't have many regrets in my life," Jason shared as part of GQ's August issue cover story interview, but added: "… I regret not fully being able to give myself over because I've always been someone who thinks too big"
"I'll have a better understanding of why in a year," he 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."
The Saturday Night Live alum is now trying to figure out what he can learn about himself through all of these experiences.
"That's an experience that you either learn from or make excuses about," he explained. "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."
After a seven-year engagement, Sudeikis and Wilde called it quits in November of 2020. But by the new year, she had already moved on to date Harry Styles for months before they went public with their relationship while vacationing in Italy.
But the past year wasn't all bad for Sudeikis. In August 2020, his show Ted Lasso premiered on Apple TV+. The following month he would go on to win a Golden Globe at the virtual ceremony in a tie-dye hoodie made by sister's clothing company.
Although, he made it clear to GQ that "neither high nor heartbroken" was the cause of his change in attire. He just didn't want to wear a Tom Ford suit and instead opted for something more casual.
In the series, Jason Sudeikis' character also experiences heartache when Ted's marriage ultimately ends in divorce.
"And yet one has nothing to do with the other," Sudeikis said about the similarities in the show, which had already been written and aired by the time news of his split from Wilde broke. "That's the crazy thing. Everything that happened in season one was based on everything that happened before season one. Like, a lot of it three years prior. Do you know what I mean? The story's bigger than that, I hope. And anything I've gone through, other people have gone through. That's one of the nice things, right? So it's humbling in that way."
It was a tough year, but Sudeikis is ready to come out on top.
I think it's pretty neat that he had the opportunity to hit rock bottom and have an extraordinary rebound from there," says actor Jason Sudeikis in GQ magazine (December 2013). "Personally I've chosen not just bounce back as everyone else has."
"I don't know. It's just how I landed." He shrugged before continuing, "It doesn't mean when you blast back up you're not going to run into a bunch of s--t and have to fight things on the way back but I'd take that over 412 bones anytime!"
"But there is power in creating 412 bones! Because we all know that as long as it heals properly, the bone will heal stronger than ever," he said with a smile.
