Yesterday, while Olivia Wilde was at Cinemacon showing exhibitors the trailer for the movie she directed starring Harry Styles, the man for whom she left her partner, Jason Sudeikis, she was slipped an envelope by someone in front of the stage. She opened the manilla envelope, and to her credit, she kept her cool. As it turns out, she was being served child custody papers from Sudeikis. Sudeikis, who is probably in Europe shooting the third season of Ted Lasso (shooting began last month), said he had no knowledge and “would never condone her being served in such an inappropriate manner.” There is an instinct here for people to take sides — because we live in a binary world — but honestly, this seems like a case of a sh*tty process server. Cinemacon, meanwhile, is reevaluating its security protocols. (Variety)
