Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis’ former dog walker is now speaking out about what she noticed in the weeks before the celebrity couple called it quits.
In a hilarious essay published Thursday on Gawker, the anonymous dog walker describes how her strolls with Gordon Sudeikis-Wilde suddenly ceased as the the couple’s marital problems played out behind the scenes.
She described how heartbroken she was when she realized the ‘happiest mornings during Covid’s depressing era’ came to an end.
The woman writes that she was first hired to walk a dog named Gordon in the Fall of 2020, expecting a nanny to bring the dog to her — but was surprised when she was confronted by the 47-year-old Ted Lasso star instead.
‘Gordon was not just any Gordon — he was Gordon Sudeikis-Wilde,’ the dog walker wrote, noting that she has ‘encountered men like Jason Sudeikis many times.
‘I like to call them “Nice Guy Tie Dye” guys,’ she explained. ‘The style’s counter-culture origins have long faded, and now they announce the arrival of a man who may have never seen the end of a gravity bong.’
The walker then goes on to write that she was immediately star struck.
‘I’d never heard Jason Sudeikis speak, but the thrill of celebrity possessed me immediately. The potential for sudden validation, the ache to be remembered, liked, seen through the eyes of a vaguely beloved male overpowered me.
‘I was suddenly willing to kill for him.’
But the dog walker never got the validation she sought from Sudeikis, as he kept the door unlocked for her while he was ‘stuck in big Hollywood meetings.’

Instead, the dog walker writes, she bonded with Gordon, whom she described as a ‘silly, stupid golden retriever’ who ‘wore a harness that barely contained his hefty, bumbling form.
‘He’d start fight with other dogs, so I braced for the worst,’ the walker wrote, explaining: ‘I had walked dogs who bullied me, threatened me, slandered me… But Gordon wasn’t like that.
‘In general he was an angel,’ she said. ‘He bounced along with big-dog energy, but a puppy’s rambunctious spirit.
‘He was well-behaved and a good walker, keeping pace with me, but never pulling, dragging or stalling,’ she added, saying: ‘He happily trotted by my side when I was tired and picked up a jog when I wanted fitness.
‘He was good… almost too good,’ she wrote. ‘We were connected.’
The dog walker started walking Gordon every other day for months, describing them as ‘my happiest mornings during COVID’s most depressing drawn-out flop area’ before she got a text reading: ‘No more Gordon walks.
‘My structured, healthy mornings with Gordon were over, effective immediately,’ she wrote. ‘My beefy companion was gone. I would no longer share in his sweet, aloof presence of dismal pandemic mornings.’
Gordon was reportedly ‘rehomed’ as Wilde, 38, started spending more time with Harry Styles, 28, that fall. The two are pictured here on Thursday, standing at a distance

The walker was never told why the walks had to end, only finding out recently that Gordon was reportedly rehomed as Wilde, 38, started spending more and more time with Harry Styles, 28.
She felt that Gordon was ‘at best an afterthought’ to Sudeikis.
The walker concluded her essay by saying she now understands ‘why celebrities can immobilize us.
‘To become a confidant to a god, however fleeting, is one of the most previous gifts this life can bestow upon us.
‘To be in service to Jason Sudeikis, to placate him, comfort him, what an unmatched feat,’ she wrote, adding: ‘It was all Gordon ever wanted after all.’
The dog walker’s essay comes just days after the celebrity couple’s former nanny detailed how their very public split played out behind the scenes.
The former House actress has maintained her relationship with Sudeikis was ‘over long before’ she ever met Harry Styles on the set of her film, Don’t Worry Darling.
But she had been seen flaunting her vintage engagement ring while frolicking in the Malibu ocean with her then-husband on September 8, 2020.
In October, just weeks after that outing, Wilde would begin working closely with Styles as filming got underway for her film.
She began spending more time away from home citing work and eventually moved into the nearby $1,650-a-night Paramour Estate Hotel in LA at the start of November 2020.
A former nanny for Wilde and Sudeikis’ two children, Otis and Daisy, said the Booksmart director told her oblivious fiancé the move was due to a COVID outbreak on set.
Days later on November 8, she reportedly dumped Sudeikis during a visit to the house they had previously shared.

The actress and film director has insisted that she and Sudeikis parted ways in early 2020, telling Vanity Fair last month: ‘Our relationship was over long before I met Harry.’
She went so far as to say it was a ‘horses**t’ idea that she’d ‘left Jason for Harry’ and indicated the pair tried to co-parent for as long as they could during the pandemic to make things easier on their children.
But the nanny, who spent three years caring for Otis, 8, and Daisy, 6, said her September 2020 beach trip with the couple and their kids prove that is not the case.
‘Look at her ring on Labor Day Weekend (2020). We were in Malibu on Labor Day Weekend,’ she told DailyMail.com.
‘This was right before she started seeing Harry. She’s wearing her engagement ring from Jason and laughing as she’s on the beach.’
Sudeikis proposed to Wilde in 2013 after three years together with a diamond ring surrounded by a halo of emeralds.
At the time, she said: ‘All they know is that it went through Paris around 1921. I love imagining the story of this ring. Who had it? It’s a bit of an aqua emerald, not a deep dark green. Jason said it reminded him of my eyes, which is very sweet.’
Wilde was also reportedly discussing her marriage plans to Sudeikis as recently as October 2020, the former nanny added, just a month before leaving and well after she claims the marriage had already deteriorated.
The nanny said she detailed plans to have Daisy act as flower girl during the ceremony.

But that all changed after Wilde met Styles and swiftly fell for the singer, with the nanny claiming she even appeared visibly ‘giddy’ and giggly around him when she took Daisy to visit her on set.
‘Olivia went on to defend herself and I think she did it for Harry because she wanted Harry to think things were over for a long time – and they weren’t,’ the nanny said.
The nanny alleged the relationship between Wilde and Sudeikis was complicated even after she moved out of the family home and officially called things off, with Wilde going public with her relationship to Styles just five days later.
The two confirmed their romance on January 6 after they were snapped walking hand-in-hand at Jeffrey Azoff’s wedding in Montecito, California.
Earlier this week Wilde and Sudeikis accused their nanny of conducting ’18-month-long campaign of harassment’ against them after their former employee made series of claims which they blasted the nanny’s ‘false and scurrilous’.
