Both fiction and reality seem to have parallels—Sudeikis and Lasso are currently divorced— Lasso from his wife in the United States, and Sudeikis from ex-partner actress Olivia Wilde, with whom he shares two children.
Speaking with GQ recently, Sudeikis discussed the breakup with Wilde in 2020. Allegedly, their relationship came to an end with tabloids showing Wilde holding hands with Harry Styles which caused a series of conflicting relationship timelines and loads of explanations.
He also reportedly didn’t have “total clarity” about the relationship ending.
“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, ” Sudeikis told the outlet.
The second season of Ted Lasso, which aired on July 23, 2021, is available for streaming on Apple TV Plus.
