Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles vs. Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis: Who Brings the Watermelon Sugar?

Actor and filmmaker Olivia Wilde continues to make headlines regarding her celebrity relationship with singer-songwriter Harry Styles. Lately, rumors swirled that the former One Direction band member and the Booksmart director secretly married. However, before the couple became an item in January 2021, Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis had almost a ten-year relationship. Although it’s a song by Harry Styles, it only fits that we compare Olivia Wilde’s two relationships based on who brings the “Watermelon Sugar?”

Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis relationship and split

When news broke in January 2021 that Wilde and Styles were an item, many fans suspected that the 27-year-old caused the Wilde Sudeikis split. However, in an interview with GQ, Sudeikis takes responsibility for the breakup. He confirms that they split in “November 2020,” reflecting on the nearly 10-year relationship with Wilde.

“That’s an experience that you either learn from or make excuses about,” he told the outlet. “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.”

Wilde and Sudeikis have two children together, 7-year-old Otis and 5-year-old Daisy, that they share amicably. By all accounts in the GQ article, Sudeikis is a lot like his character in Ted Lasso. No, the divorce in season 1 did not come from his personal experience, but even Sudeikis sees the similarities.

“I’ll have a better understanding of why in a year, and an even better one in two, and an even greater one in five,” he added. “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.” 

Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles relationship

While Wilde’s relationship with Sudeikis sounded reasonable and honest, it doesn’t look nearly as exciting as the one she now has with Styles. According to People, the paparazzi recently caught the new couple vacationing in Italy. The flurry of photos show Wilde and Styles kissing on a yacht and romantically swaying together. 


Is Harry Styles’ One Direction Song ‘Olivia’ About Olivia Wilde?

Many reports of their relationship together involved the pair holding hands or kissing. Plus, the note that surfaced from Wilde about Styles’ work on her upcoming movie, Don’t Worry Darling, is heartwarming. She describes how most male actors do not want to play a lesser role in a female-led film; however, Styles played back up without holding back. 

Who brings the watermelon sugar?

Many fans believe that Harry Styles’ song, “Watermelon Sugar,” is about oral sex. However, in the Showbiz Cheat Sheet analysis of the meaning, Styles explained the verses to several different outlets. The singer-songwriter believes it is about that emotional and physical spark between two people when they first begin dating. 

“It’s kind of about that initial, I guess, euphoria of when you start seeing someone or sleeping with someone or just like being around someone and you have that kind of excitement about them,” Styles told PopBuzz.

With the true meaning of “Watermelon Sugar” revealed, it sounds like the new relationship between Wilde and Styles has that total watermelon sugar high feeling. What will happen when that initial “euphoria” wears off remains to be seen.
