Jason Sudeikis has opened up about his split from his former fiancée Olivia Wilde, saying he will have a "better understanding" about what happened as the years go by.

The Ted Lasso and Don't Worry Darling stars parted ways last November, with the actor addressing the separation in a new interview with GQ.

"I'll have a better understanding of why in a year," Sudeikis admitted, "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."

He added: "That's an experience that you either learn from or make excuses about. You take some responsibility for it, hold yourself accountable for what you do, but then also endeavour to learn something beyond the obvious from it."

Wilde has since gone on to date her Don't Worry Darling co-star Harry Styles, with the One Direction star seemingly confirming their romance back in January.

Sudeikis went on to address similarities between his on-screen Ted Lasso storyline in season one – where his character moves to the UK in part to give his wife space amid a failing marriage – in the interview, noting the storyline was written before events in his personal life.

"And yet one has nothing to do with the other," Sudeikis said. "That's the crazy thing. Everything that happened in season one was based on everything that happened prior to season one. Like, a lot of it three years prior. You know what I mean?

"The story's bigger than that, I hope. And anything I've gone through, other people have gone through. That's one of the nice things, right? So it's humbling in that way."

Season 2 of Ted Lasso is due to premiere later this month on July 23 on Apple TV+.
