Exes Olivia Wilde & Jason Sudeikis were photographed hugging in LA

Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles broke up last November, after dating for two years. They met during filming on Don’t Worry Darling, where… Olivia dumped Jason Sudeikis and started up with Harry simultaneously. Don’t @ me, that’s exactly what happened. Olivia has always been extremely messy about how she gets into and out of relationships, but this Harry Styles thing blew up in a huge way and I still say it will have larger repercussions for her career. I mean, that’s not just about Styles – it’s also about Olivia’s behavior on the DWD set, and her disrespect towards Florence Pugh. All in all, Olivia has spent the past few months trying to be a bit quieter and (I would imagine) trying to clean up the various messes she made in the past two years. That means she and Jason Sudeikis seem to be in a better place these days, post-Styles. They were photographed hugging outside of one of their homes in LA on Friday.

Olivia Wilde and ex-fiancé Jason Sudeikis appear to be keeping it friendly. After PEOPLE confirmed her split from Harry Styles in November, the actress and filmmaker, 38, was spotted Friday in Los Angeles, sharing a hug with the Ted Lasso star, 47, with whom she shares son Otis Alexander, 8½, and 6-year-old daughter Daisy Josephine.

A source told PEOPLE in November that Wilde and Styles, 28, are “taking a break” after they were first linked in January 2021 while working on their movie Don’t Worry Darling, on which she served as actress and director.

“He’s still touring and is now going abroad. She is focusing on her kids and her work in L.A. It’s a very amicable decision,” said the insider, adding: “They’re still very close friends.”

Another insider has since told PEOPLE: “The break has been difficult for Olivia. They have had some issues, but Olivia thought they were gonna work through it all. She is disappointed. It’s just a tricky situation, though.”

Olivia and Jason spent much of the past year engaged in an increasingly public custodial spat – one of the big reasons why Jason was fighting over custody was because Olivia was plotting to move to London with Styles and the kids. Sudeikis wanted the family to go back to being New York-based. So… I don’t know what’s going on with any of that. I hope Olivia isn’t still planning to move to London with the kids.

Also: you’ve got to think that either Jason or Olivia set up these photos. Cui bono?

    She is obvious messy and about her desires being fulfilled, but so is Jason. He just has the affable guy thing that some folks buy into. They have babies so hopefully the nastiness is behind them.

  2. Katie Beanstalk says:

    I love that hat on him. He looks like he’s going to wear a tweed coat and go fishing in a stream. I get Olivia Wilde mixed up with Dakota Johnson – I’m not sure why.

  3. DouchesofCambridge says:

    feels totally staged. You hug saying hello, but any hug following hello hugs, are more part of an personal, intimate conversation, that could not have happened in public, even less when you’re a messy celebrity, only if youre trying to change the tone of the narrative on you. But whatever, if that’s their strategy to get something good about them out in the papers, even if it’s just for their kids, good for them.

    • Abby says:

      Welllll I’m skeptical of this situation, but everyone I know hugs people we know hello and goodbye. Like more often a hug goodbye as they leave. Maybe it’s the culture where I live?

      • BothSidesNow says:

        I too hug hello and goodbye, though I am a big hugger!! I love to give hugs and my kids have grown to be big huggers too!!

    • Josephine says:

      maybe, but i hug hello and good-bye, maybe good-bye even more. even if it’s staged i’m all for them being decent to each other for the kids. that’s all that really matters.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Certainly staged by OW @ DouchesofCambridge. Her career is has taken a nose dive and her treatment of PH is cemented onto the internet forever!! Plus, she is single now and she is still yearning for Styles and if she thinks that they will reconcile, I have a bridge to sell her…..

  4. JBones says:

    She looks stunning in that black dress and tuxedo jacket. And, good for them (golf clap).

  5. Normades says:

    He seemed really out of sorts that she was dating Harry, so now that that’s over things have probably become smoother.

  6. Jais says:

    I’ve mostly never felt a super way about Olivia Wilde, even when things got messy. I didn’t care that she was dating Harry and had left Jason. I never felt a way until that video was revealed when she called Florence, Miss Flo. That was just shitty. It was patronizing and condescending. Best case scenario is that she sees how shitty that was, isn’t an asshole again and can be a more present director and not have cutesy nicknames for the women in her films. That was just not it. At all. Idk, just try harder not to be an asshole.

    • Isabella Saxon says:

      I just read a book about the iconic directors of the 1970s. Wow. Drugs, affairs, terrible clothes, all-around messiness. And yet the movies were great. Of course, most of those guys had capable, long-suffering wives and girlfriends, working behind the scenes, willing to sacrifice themselves on the altar of their greatness. Women directors have to contend with misogyny, sabotage and jealousy. It’s a lot.

  7. Tara says:

    I hope he would never take her back after all this but he might. Ugh. Summer 2023. Lol. We need a replacement for Bennifer.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Yes please!!! If I see another article on my news feed about them selling this big love affair will not be too soon for me.

    • Isabella Saxon says:

      It could be worse. He could be dating Jennifer Anniston.

  8. outoftheshadows says:

    Keeping it classy for the children is never a bad idea, even if you have to call in the paparazzi to do it.

  9. Abby says:

    Cynical me: Oh how convenient, Ted Lasso is coming out soon. Got to rehab the image.

    All seriousness, I hope they’re amicable for the sake of their kids.

  10. Aly says:

    I believe that unhinged nanny played a huge role in their reconciliation lol. She started running her mouth and became a common enemy for Jason/Olivia. I’m sure that brought them close.

    Jason seemed like he really wanted to humiliate Olivia, punish her for dumping him for Harold Stylish. But now that Harold is out of picture, he seemed to have cooled down. Good for their kids tbh. DWD drama episodes are being sorted out one by one – Harry/Olivia break up, Harry/Chris Pine hugging in public to refute spitgate rumours, Jason/Olivia on cordial terms. Now all we need is Miss Flo/Olivia posing together at some party/event.

    • FHMom says:

      I dont see the Miss Flo/Olivia photo op coming anytime soon. Olivia likes to burn bridges. I do hope she and Jason can keep it civil for their kids.

  11. ThatsNotOkay says:

    Look, this was the best gossip of 2022, and just the other day I was wishing she and Harry would rekindle things. But this–Jason consoling Olivia after the terrible year she’s had, with her salad dressing being revealed to be as basic as she is, and her not getting any Oscar nominations and thus going to Jason for a shoulder to cry on–is pretty good. Better still, would be for Harry, who just split his pants on stage in front of his first celebrity crush, Jennifer Aniston, to start dating Jen, with a battle of the older women going into high gear. Oh, would that it were!!!

  12. Kaye says:

    Based only on that one pic, that hug looks like something I’d give my ex’s brother (whom I didn’t like): all elbows, touching only where necessary.

    • Normades says:

      Yeah, it looks like one of those patting back hugs, no real embracing or full body touching.

  13. Silver Birch says:

    Some good press before the new series of Ted Lasso comes out?

  14. Bread and Circuses says:

    If you look at all the photos in that series, they just look like amicable co-parents. Beyond the hug, they kept the sort of personal space and body language one associates with neighbours or acquaintances.
