Oliva Wilde and Harry Styles’ relationship has taken Hollywood by storm. Shortly after her split from Jason Sudeikis, Wilde began an unlikely romance with Watermelon Sugar singer Harry Styles after casting him in her film Don’t Worry Darling. The film itself drew a lot of attention, but so did the torrid and intense romance between Wilde and Styles.
According to People, the couple started dating in September 2020, but they’ve done their best to keep their blossoming relationship under wraps. Wilde and Styles only made a public appearance as a couple in January 2021 when they attended a wedding together — causing quite a stir as the newest “It” couple in Hollywood. “Harry and Olivia had chemistry on set almost instantly,” the insider told Us Weekly in June. “It was only a matter of time before they got together.”
For their roles, Wilde and Styles haven’t been overtly beaming about how happy they are to be together, but they have sung praises to one another for their work in the film. Styles subtly complimented his girlfriend on Sirius XM’s “The Howard Stern Show” (via Page Six). “Acting is sometimes very uncomfortable. I think you have to have a lot of trust,” he told Stern. “It takes a lot of trust to give your all, and I think it’s a gift to be able to trust your director, so that was very helpful.” But how did the two act on the set of the film?
Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles kept things professional
It looks like Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles’ on-set romance wasn’t as hot and heavy as people initially thought. The couple’s love story created some tension in Wilde’s directorial debut, with sources telling Page Six that Florence Pugh, who stars in the film with Styles, wasn’t too happy with the relationship between her director and her co-star. However, most of the other cast members didn’t know Styles and Wilde were “a thing” as they flew completely under the radar. “Olivia was super professional – both she and Harry,” shared a source. “We were all surprised to hear they were a couple and didn’t even know they were a couple until the news broke.”
Another insider close to the couple confirmed that Styles and Wilde did their best to keep things totally professional until the end of filming. “We shot the film at the height of COVID,” the second source said. “Everyone had a job to do and we focused on that. See? Absolute professionals.
Following the same theme, Wilde seems to be keeping the romance under wraps on social media and has primarily used her account to promote Don’t Worry Darling for the past few months. In May, she released the trailer and gushed about how proud she was of it. She also told her followers that she “can’t wait to show you what we’ve been up to together.”
