Olivia Wilde & Harry Styles ‘seem very serious’ & they spend ‘all their time together’

Olivia Wilde arrives at the 2020 Film Independent Spirit Awards, held on the beach in Santa Monica,...

Olivia Wilde keeps getting so much attention for being a director. I mean, good for her, and Booksmart wasn’t a disaster (it was annoying and way too white, but whatever). She’s currently directing Don’t Worry Darling with an assortment of actors including her new boyfriend Harry Styles. She took a break from filming to chat with Emerald Fennell for Variety’s awards-season interview series recently. They’re both actress-directors, and Fennell directed Promising Young Woman. I don’t really care about this piece, but you can read the transcript here. Olivia once again seems to believe that she’s the only person in Hollywood with a “no a–holes” policy. When really she just stole that entire concept from Shonda Rhimes and now Olivia is getting credit for it (plus, Olivia would have cancel herself if she truly had a no a–holes policy).

Anyway! If you’re here because you’re curious about Olivia and Harry Styles, good luck! After not much news about them for a few weeks, People Magazine had an update over the weekend. For some reason.

The romance between Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles is going strong. The pair “seem very serious” and “spend all their time together” as they continue to shoot their upcoming film, Don’t Worry Darling, in Los Angeles, a source tells PEOPLE. The film is Wilde’s highly-anticipated sophomore directorial project which she also stars in.

“She is also very happy with Harry,” adds the source. “Olivia and Harry continue to film in L.A. Filming has been tricky because of COVID. They have shut down the set several times for testing and breaks. Olivia is amazing to work with though. She stays calm and very focused despite all the breaks.”

The “Golden” singer, 27, and the Booksmart director, 36, were seen holding hands at a friend’s wedding in Montecito, California, in early January. A source confirmed to PEOPLE at the time that they had “dated for a few weeks,” at that point.

Sources also previously told PEOPLE that Wilde struck up a close friendship with Styles last fall as they began work on Don’t Worry Darling. As they spent time together on-and off-set, their friendship “quickly turned romantic,” said an insider, who added: “Their chemistry was very obvious.”

I crack up every time I read quotes from an unnamed source who is absolutely Olivia’s publicist. You can really tell when it’s Olivia’s publicist because they have certain “tells.” Tells like “Olivia is amazing to work with though. She stays calm and very focused despite all the breaks” and “She was also busier than him at times…Olivia has a very promising directing and producing career” and “He has been really hurt and somewhat jealous that Olivia has moved on with Harry.” Olivia always comes out like a beautiful, sexy saint who is supremely talented and in-demand and also supremely competent, even though her ex is jealous of her and her current boyfriend is obsessed with her.

    I think this relationship is going to crash and burn hard but I’m enjoying the coverage for now!

      Yeah I don’t really get these two, but whatever I think they’re just having fun. They’re kind of a boring duo. I don’t find Harry boring, but as a couple they’re a bit of a snooze. How is she an a-hole? I honestly don’t know much about her and I think I’ve seen her in movies, but her presence just doesn’t register with me. I’m not hating on her, she just has such a poor onscreen presence for me that I forget she exists and any time she’s had a performance in a movie. Blake lively is that way too. Some people just have a PRESENCE and they just don’t. The first examples that popped into my head were Queen Latifah and sir Patrick Stewart. They don’t even have to be the main character, but you remember them in movies.

      • Chris says:

        When I said how is she an a-hole, I meant before she co-opted a successful black woman’s no bs policy and acted as if she created it? I know nothing about her pre booksmart and really even after.

      Of course it will eventually run its course. They are together all the time on set, so madly in love. He will eventually reset his big tour supporting his album about his last love. He had to cancel it last year because of the pandemic. Good album. He will be off on tour. The relationship will run its course after a year or so.

      Word. Just waiting to see

    ugggggh she bothers me … i really think all this press leaks are super distracting

    and i cant remember any film she has ever been in except booksmart which she directed which is great because of the cast

    I’ve never seen more Olivia content in her entire career than now. I’m fuming about her new motto that she stole from Shonda Rhimes, specifically because she hired Shia in the first place. Yes, FKA Twigs didn’t come out with her story until after she brought him on, but there have been stories about him for YEARS. He abused his previous ex. He had explosive episodes. But only when Olivia would get sh*t from the press then she cared. Olivia is the epitome of white feminism “girl boss”. And honestly so is Harry. Of course he won’t get any slack from this relationship and his new movie which is copaganda.

    As someone with similar aged kids to her, I am extremely fascinated by how she can carry on a steamy, hot relationship where she spends all her time with him.

    • Cava24 says:

      Her kids are in England with their father, at present (at least according to other articles they went with him when he traveled to film Ted Lasso).

    • Jess says:

      Do you ask the same of men with children when you see them without their kids? Separated people have it a little harder when they’re kids are with them but we also get time without kids at all. For me it’s alternate weekends but for two actors working across the globe it’s probably a little more time with/apart from each.

    I don’t see it lasting once real life resumes and they leave their bubble.

    Honestly I’ve heard people talk about having “no assholes” policy for years and years, usually in relation to TV shows where people could be employed together for a long time. Shonda definitely, and Mike Schur, and a few others, and most of them say they learned it from someone else. There’s literally an entire book written about it in 2007. It’s not a new concept or attributable to any one person. Kind of funny people are trying to credit Olivia for that.

    I really enjoyed Booksmart (but agree it was pretty white) and I look forward to other work she’s going to do, but her publicity team needs to calm down a bit.

    • Chris says:

      It fell into the annoying trap every teen movie does, everyone gets into an ivy league school. It’s so weird. Is it because if people have achieved success in Hollywood it’s likely because they had a leg up by going to wealthy high schools where everyone DID get into ivies? Off topic, but it’s always confused me.

    Her eye makeup is never good.

    Ugh she’s exhausting. Poor Harry.

  8. Cava24 says:

    She’s actually got a few minor fires going on that the People article is probably meant to address:

    1) people noticed that the Zoom with Phennell was shot in the same room in her house that Jason Sudeikis had used in the past for a Zoom and jumped to the (very dumb) conclusion that they were still together and the thing with Harry wasn’t real, etc. She is part owner of the house and Jason is filming Ted Lasso in England so her being there is not surprising. The article gets the idea that she is still with Harry out there.

    2) Filming on Don’t Worry Darling is dragging on and on, some of that is COVID-related but not all of it and she also had some pricey reshoots in Palm Springs last week, it would not be surprising if that went over budget.

    3) there was a blind item saying that the films shooting on the Warner’s Burbank lot weren’t testing for COVID-19 or weren’t shutting down for positive tests (no idea if that’s true); DWD is a Warner’s production.

    She’s definitely keen to make sure people know they are still together-She’s been wearing Harry-adjacent clothing -(presumably his) men’s Gucci sweatshirt (she doesn’t own stuff like that and he reps Gucci), a hoodie from a restaurant his manager’s family owns (that Harry has in another color). She followed his private IG account off her public account (which means the follow was highly visible) and then dropped a hint about how serious that meant they were in a blind that was obviously them on Deux Moi and then liked a post by one of his family members who she doesn’t follow and doesn’t follow her so everyone could see it on IG. And yesterday she was out and about in jewelry from a line he made semi-famous and a tee shirt from the brand that made the masks they wore to the wedding. So she’s dropping little references all over the place.

    She’s super charming in the Zoom with Phennell but she talks about herself/her process a whole lot and I think the intention was to focus on Phennell as it was essentially mean to be about “Promising Young Woman”. That’s…. not what happened. She dropped a Fellini reference in the interview and was uploading Kubrick quotes to her IG stories about “visual storytelling” so she is up in her feels about making DWD. Which isn’t terrible but she’s a little infatuated with being a director in ways that relate more to her image than her work. or something. The press for DWD will be interesting.

    “She is also very happy with Harry”

    This is also how I would describe a new pet.

  10. Pauline says:

    She is too old and comes with baggage and her x is still in the kids life that’s another problem

    He’s gay honey it’s all for PR. Harry does this regularly poor soul being closeted by his label
