Actor Jason Sudeikis wears ‘My Body My Choice’ sweater for award show
Jason Sudeikis is swapping an awards show hoodie for a statement-making sweater, sporting a pro-abortion rights style at the annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards.
The 45-year-old comedian — who made headlines in February when he appeared at the Golden Globes in a casual, hooded sweatshirt — accepted his SAG award in the outstanding performance by a male actor in a comedy series category on Sunday for his role in Apple TV’s “Ted Lasso.”
Sudeikis could be seen at the virtual awards show sporting a sweater with the words “My Body My Choice.”

The wool look by Gucci sells for $1,100. Gucci has said that it included the 1970s feminist slogan on some of its clothes from its Cruise 2020 collection as part of its “longstanding commitment to women and girls” and funds projects that “support sexual and reproductive rights, maternal health, and the freedom of individual choice.”
Sudeikis told Bust magazine in 2016 that he “very much” considered himself a feminist.
“At its truest sense, I believe that males and females should be treated equal and everybody being valued as such with the lights off when it’s just bones and soul,” he said.
Sudeikis said last week that he hadn’t determined his SAG Awards outfit ahead of time, saying it would be a “last-minute decision, much like the hoodie.”
After the “Saturday Night Live” alum accepted his Golden Globe in the tie-dyed hoodie from England during the virtual ceremony, the Academy Awards issued a dress code for its gala event scheduled for later this month.
Producers said in a letter that they aiming for an “inspirational and aspirational” vibe during the April 25 Oscars, “which in actual words means formal is totally cool if you want to go there, but casual is really not.”
