For Millennials. By Millennials.
Looks like love is in the air. This time seems like the former band member of One Direction is the one in a relationship. Every year, a new couple in Hollywood arises and swoons the fans. This year it’s the American actress and filmmaker Olivia Wilde and popstar Harry Styles. Olivia has starred in many TV shows and movies. She starred in one of the most famous TV shows, ‘House’. Harry Styles was a member of the famous band One Direction but the band went on hiatus in 2016. After that, Harry Styles has released many albums as a solo artist. One of his famous songs is ‘Watermelon Sugar’, became a summer hit last year.
Olivia recently split up with her fiancé ‘Jason Sudeikis after nine years. The couple has two kids together, a seven-year-old boy named Otis and a four-year-old daughter named Daisy. As for Harry’s love life, well there was no love actually. US Weekly reported that Harry’s love life was ‘pretty non-existent during lockdown’. This was obviously before he met the popular actress, Olivia Wilde.
How did Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde meet?
Harry and Olivia met while Olivia was directing Harry in the upcoming movie ‘Don’t Worry Darling’. Harry and Olivia were seen holding hands at Harry’s manager’s wedding. People said that the two might be a ‘thing’ but nothing was for sure back then. The role in ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ was going to be played by Shia LaBeouf but he got replaced by Harry Styles. The rumors have it that Shia had behavior issues and violated Olivia’s ‘zero as*hole policy’ on set. Some reports said that the reason why Shia left isn’t because of poor behavior but because of his ex-girlfriend who filed a lawsuit against him on charges of sexual battery and assault. Moving on, on October 15, 2020, Wild announced the news of casting Harry and Florence Pugh on Instagram.
Jack and Alice. Very proud to work with these fine folks. #DontWorryDarling
What does Wilde think of Harry?
In November, Wilde did an interview with Vogue in which he talked about Harry and said:
To me, he’s very modern and I hope that this brand of confidence as a male that Harry has-truly devoid of any traces of toxic masculine-is indicative of his generation and therefore the future of the world.
She talked about the moment when she and the film’s costume designer found out that Harry will be joining the film. Wilde said that she and Arianne (the film’s costume designer) did a little victory dance when they got the news that Harry will be joining the cast. The director said that they were excited because Styles has a real appreciation for style and fashion.
Director Olivia Wilde also praised the actor for joining as a male supporting role for a female led film:
“Little-known fact: Most male actors don’t want to play supporting roles in female-led films. The industry has raised them to believe it lessens their power (i.e., financial value) to accept these roles, which is one of the reasons it’s so hard to get financing for movies focusing on female stories. No joke, it is harrrrrd to find actors who recognize why it might be worth it to allow for a woman to hold the spotlight. Enter: @HarryStyles, our ‘Jack.’ Not only did he relish the opportunity to allow for the brilliant @FlorencePugh to hold center stage as our ‘Alice,’ but he infused every scene with a nuanced sense of humanity. He didn’t have to join our circus, but he jumped on board with humility and grace and blew us away every day with his talent, warmth, and ability to drive backward. 👊 #DontWorryDarling”
Olivia Wilde split up with her fiancé
In January 2020, rumors were spread that Olivia Wilde split up with her fiancé. Only they weren’t rumors. Nobody explained why they split up but Entertainment Tonight reported that the couple just fell out of love in a romantic way, but still have love towards one another as people.
A source told US Weekly:
Olivia called off the engagement in early November but only after she had gotten close to Harry. Whether Harry knows it or not he was the reason for the split.
But there was no major truth to this source as another source argued that Olivia and Jason had split up way before Olivia even met Harry.
Furthermore, Harry and Olivia also traveled to London together after wrapping up the production of ‘Don’t Worry Nothing’ in February. The couple went out of the spotlight for 2 months. Then on April 14, they were seen at a West London pub.
The source said:
They looked very cozy on an intimate table for two away from other diners
Looks like things have been going really well for the couple so far. A source told Entertainment Tonight:
Wilde and Styles are having an awesome time (in London). They have been going on walks outside in the park and not hiding their relationship [and have] grown even closer as a couple.
Let’s hope things stay great for the couple!
