They met while filming together. Best known as an actress, Olivia Wilde directed Don't Worry Darling and starred singer Harry Styles. Since January 2021, the two have appeared publicly as a couple. Now the relationship should be over for the time being.
This is reported by "People", citing insiders from the couple's environment. Accordingly, the 28-year-old Styles and the ten-year-old Wilde had agreed to "take a break". Several people confirmed this to the magazine.
The main reason given for the separation was different priorities. While Wilde is mainly in Los Angeles and takes care of her three children, who come from her previous relationship with actor Jason Sudeikis ("Ted Lasso"), Styles is currently on a world tour. "Their priorities are just keeping them apart right now," a source told the newspaper. "They're still very close friends though." This is supported by the fact that Wilde and her children were seen partying at Styles' concert in Los Angeles on November 15th.
It is unlikely that the two will comment or even confirm their separation. Even their relationship had never been discussed publicly by them. Styles told Rolling Stone over the summer that he's deliberately keeping his personal life to himself. "There will always be some kind of storytelling, and I've decided that I won't waste time trying to correct or control it." Wilde, who had done so in the past, recently made a similar statement. "If you're happy, it doesn't matter what other people think," she told Vogue. And added to Vanity Fair: "If you open the window, you can't get upset about mosquitoes coming in."
One reason for this may have been persistent rumors that Styles is said to have had an affair with his "Don't Worry Darling" colleague Florence Pugh and made the wild mad. Although this was denied by numerous members of the film crew, the pressure on the two was great, a friend told People. Nevertheless, they would have stuck to their principle of not commenting on it.
The two had not kept their relationship secret. Although the split from her longtime fiancé Jason Sudeikis was only a few months ago when the relationship began, the two were repeatedly seen holding hands or kissing at public events. Again and again Wilde and her children could be seen at concerts.
