No doubt this year has been a mixed year for Olivia Wilde. The ‘House’ actor made headlines back in April after her ex, Jason Sudeikis, signed off her custody papers while she was on stage at CinemaCon to promote an upcoming film. She called it an attempt by Sudeikis to “embarrass her professionally,” though he reportedly denied his role in the fiasco. Then there were rumors of a falling out between Wilde and Florence Pugh, the star of Wilde’s second directorial effort Don’t Worry Darling, over Wilde’s boyfriend and Pugh’s co-star Harry Styles.
Wilde finally got some good news last week when a judge dismissed Sudeikis’ petition to let her two children live in Brooklyn. According to court documents obtained from the case, the judge decreed that the children’s home state will remain California, where Wilde resides. While the actress hasn’t publicly commented on her big court win, she gave fans a few hints about her current state of mind in a recent Instagram story.
Olivia Wilde was absolutely beaming on social media
Despite her recent struggles, Olivia Wilde appeared to be showing nothing but joy in a recent story shared on Instagram (via Daily Mail). In the shot, the actor was smiling and she had thrown her arm in the air as if she’d finally freed herself from the chains that had bound her, while the other gently clasped a tiny hand – presumably one of their children. While we’re not sure if the little hand belongs to her son Otis, 8, or her daughter Daisy, 5, we’re sure they’re thrilled at their mother’s happiness. Fans certainly did, and took to social media to sing praises for the star. “I will never look like Olivia Wilde and I consider this the great tragedy of my life,” a user raved.
A follow-up shot shared by Wilde showed a tasty-looking drink with a smiley face, which the actor was enjoying with an unidentified companion. When the Tron: Legacy actress takes a moment to celebrate her big custody win over Jason Sudeikis, we’ll toast it.
Hopefully this will mark the beginning of a less tumultuous period in the actor’s life, but that’s not certain. According to court documents obtained by the Daily Mail, Wilde intends to move to London with the couple’s children in the near future and we think it could spark more drama.
