"Ted Lasso" actor Jason Sudeikis is GQ magazine's August cover star, and he told the magazine during an interview that he still doesn't fully understand the breakdown of his relationship with actor-director Olivia Wilde.

"I'll have a better understanding of why in a year," he said of their public split, "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."

Sudeikis continued to confirm that he and Wilde - who share two children and were engaged - separated in November 2020. Rumors of the couple's split began to make headlines in January after pictures of Wilde holding hands with musician Harry Styles surfaced online.

Since then, Wilde and Styles have continued to be spotted together. In July, Page Six published pictures of the pair kissing on a yacht in Italy. According to People magazine, Styles met Wilde on the set of her second directorial effort, "Don't Worry Darling."

"That's an experience that you either learn from or make excuses about," Sudeikis told the magazine. "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."

At the time, a source close to the couple told People that the split had "been amicable" and that Wilde and Sudeikis had "transitioned into a great co-parenting routine."

"The children are the priority and the heart of the family's relationship," the source said.

Later during his interview with GQ, Sudeikis explained his casual attire at the 2020 Golden Gloves. On the night, Sudeikis won Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy and he accepted his award via Zoom in a tie-dyed hoodie.

Images of Sudeikis were promptly turned into memes with people joking that his attire was due to the stress of his public divorce.

"I was neither high nor heartbroken," Sudeikis said of his look on the night. He continued to say that he had called into the ceremony late at night from London where he was shooting "Ted Lasso" season two. And he simply didn't feel like wearing a suit.

"I wore that hoodie because I didn't wanna f---ing wear the f---ing top half of a Tom Ford suit," he said. "I love Tom Ford suits. But it felt weird as s---."

He added: "It was like, 'This is how I feel. I believe in moving forward.'"
