Why Fans Think Jason Sudeikis Shaded Harry Styles in ‘Ted Lasso’

We’re worried, darling. Darlings, we’re worried about you. Some viewers who tuned into Ted Lasso Season 3 premiere are convinced that Jason Sudeikis shaded Harry Styles in the episode. The episode focuses largely on Sudeikis’ title character mulling over moving back to the United States to spend more time with his son, Henry. After ultimately deciding to stay in the U.K. and keep coaching, Ted has a video call with Henry, who’s playing with an Infinity gauntlet seen in the Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame movies.

Ted asks Henry where he got the toy, and Henry replies that “Jake” gave it to him, adding that Jake is “Mommy’s friend.” This leaves Ted seething and hurt. Some fans speculated that the Thanos gauntlet is a reference to Styles, who made his MCU debut in a post-credit scene of Eternals as Thanos’ brother, Starfox (also called Eros). Said fans also believe that “Jake” is a reference to “Jack,” the name of Styles’ character in Don’t Worry Darling, where he and Olivia Wilde—Sudeikis’ ex and mother of his children—met.

Of course, it could also just be rampant reaching for theories that ultimately don’t mean much. It’s not unheard of for kids to play with toys inspired by one of the biggest box office successes in history, and Jake is a pretty common name. Sudeikis previously said that his own life, experiences and insights are scattered throughout the series, but executive producer and writer Brett Goldstein dismissed any chatter and comparisons of Ted and Sudeikis’ life.

I don’t think [Sudeikis’ breakup with Wilde] was ever a consideration. The story was always the story,” Goldstein said. “None of that stuff matters to what Ted Lasso is, I don’t think. As was famously documented in tabloid media and stan accounts, Styles and Wilde dated for more than two years, splitting just as Don’t Worry Darling hit HBO Max. Styles and Wilde’s romance was hot on the heels of her and Sudeikis’ own split after more than nine years together. The breakup was acrimonious, with court battles over custody, where son Otis and daughter Daisy should live and even a dramatic serving of court documents to Wilde at CinemaCon.

“To try to sabotage that was really vicious,” Wilde told Variety of the incident. “But I had a job to do; I’m not easily distracted. But, you know, sadly, it was not something that was entirely surprising to me. I mean, there’s a reason I left that relationship. Wilde also called rumors of her leaving Sudeikis for Styles “horses**t,” saying their relationship ended early in the COVID-19 pandemic and that it had nothing to do with the “As It Was” singer. It looks like the only way we’ll know for sure if Sudeikis still has beef with Styles is if there are story arcs surrounding salad dressing.
