As Don’t Worry Darling hits the big screen and reviews from critics come in, the world has remained locked onto the drama surrounding the film.

Director Olivia Wilde has been in the spotlight for her feud with one of the movie’s stars and love affair with another.

Wilde’s most notable relationship to date has been with Jason Sudeikis. The pair was engaged for seven years before they broke things off, so what’s the story there?

Age and Height Difference

Olivia Wilde is 5 foot 7 inches tall and was born on March 10, 1984. Jason Sudeikis is 6 foot 1 inch tall and was born on September 18, 1975.

This gives them an almost 10-year age difference and makes Sudeikis tower over Wilde.

The Beginning

Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis met in May of 2011 at a finale party for Saturday Night Live. The pair had a great night together, but at the end of it, Sudeikis failed to get Wilde’s number.

In an interview with Allure, Wilde told the world that he didn’t get her number until six months later when her “best guy friend walked up to him and said ‘This is Olivia’s number. Use it.’” It took a month for him to actually text her.

They began to text, went on a first date, and immediately became smitten with one another. By October 2012, they were living together in NYC, and by January 2013, they were engaged.

A Happy Relationship for Wilde and Sudeikis

Things took off on a positive note, and for a while, they were great.

In April 2014, the couple had their first son, Otis Alexander Sudeikis. On October 11, 2016, Wilde gave birth to their daughter Daisy Josephine Sudeikis.

Though they stated in interviews that they were too busy with the children and their careers to walk down the aisle just yet, Wilde stated in an interview with Net-a-Porter that “Before you have a child, marriage is the ultimate commitment and promise to one another, and then once you have a child, it’s like, ‘Oh, we’re committed and promised already.’ ”

The Turning Point

In November 2020, Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis called off their infamous seven-year-long engagement.

Sudeikis stated in an article with GQ, “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, 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.”

Things were amicable until Wilde was presenting at CinemaCon and was served custody papers on stage. In a court document, Wilde stated that “Jason’s actions were clearly intended to threaten me and catch me off guard. He could have served me discreetly, but instead, he chose to serve me in the most aggressive manner possible.”

The Present Relationship Between Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde

Today, the pair continues to go back and forth within the court system to try to come to an agreement for the kids.

Olivia Wilde is currently dating Harry Styles, one of the stars of Don’t Worry Darling. It is rumored that Wilde left Sudeikis for Styles, though she insists that is not true and that the relationship started way after her relationship with Sudeikis ended.

Sudeikis has been seeing Keeley Hazell on and off again since the split with Wilde. She stars as Bex, the eventual second wife of Rebecca’s ex-husband Rupert Mannion, on Jason Sudeikis’ sports comedy-drama television series Ted Lasso.

Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis initially split on good terms, but the drama of new relationships and custody agreements have left the two not on speaking terms. As the wounds are still fresh, everyone can only hope that they will continue to do what is best for the children and bury their own issues for the greater good.
