When, Where and How Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde First Met?

As we mentioned earlier Jason Sudeikis has been engaged to the popular American actress, Olivia Wilde.

The couple first met in 2011, according to the separate interviews the actress and the actor gave in 2013 and 2017 respectively.

In a cover of USA Today in October 2013, Olivia revealed that she met Sudeikis at a Saturday Night Live finale party.

She told the magazine at the time,

I met Jason, and I thought he was so charming. He's a great dancer, and I'm a sucker for great dancers. But he didn't even get my number.

She then recalled that one day, her friend went over to the actor and said, "This is Olivia's number. Use it."

Meanwhile, during an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert in April 2017, Sudeikis said, "I met her at a finale party for SNL. We hit it off that night."

He explained,

I actually came off looking a little cooler than I really am because I had heard through the grapevine, through mutual friends who weren’t exactly her best girlfriends, who would report back, 'Oh you know, I think she’s dating someone.' So I didn’t make any moves. I was just very, very busy with other things. And next thing you know, I stopped being busy, she stopped dating someone, and then it was off to the races.
