Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis continue to war with each other in the media. Sudeikis, who may or may not have intentionally served Wilde with custody papers during a professional event at Cinemacon, continues to take the “nice guy” approach. Make of that what you will.
CinemaCon was supposed to be a professional milestone for Wilde, who was about to screen footage from her movie. She didn’t miss a beat when she was interrupted by the mysterious envelope — she just carried on with her presentation. “I hated that this nastiness distracted from the work of so many different people and the studio that I was up there representing,” she says. “To try to sabotage that was really vicious. But I had a job to do; I’m not easily distracted.” She adds, “But, you know, sadly, it was not something that was entirely surprising to me. I mean, there’s a reason I left that relationship.”
“The only people who suffered were my kids, because they’ll have to see that, and they shouldn’t ever have to know that happened. For me, it was appalling, but the victims were an 8- and 5-year-old, and that’s really sad. I chose to become an actress; I willingly walked into the spotlight. But it’s not something my children have asked for. And when my kids are dragged into it, it’s deeply painful.”
For the record, Florence Pugh — who may or may not have issues with Wilde herself — declined to be interviewed for the profile on Wilde about the movie that Pugh is starring in. Make of that what you will.
