Harry Styles Reportedly Fell For Olivia Wilde's Intelligence
It’s only been a few days since the possible romance between Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde was seen by the public, but already details are coming out about how the couple met and fell for each other.
The Daily Mail reports that upon meeting each other on the set of Don’t Worry Darling, it was Wilde’s independence and intelligence that supposedly drew Styles toward her. According to a source, Olivia being smart, driven, and confident is something that Styles likes about her.
All of this reportedly happened during the October 2020 filming of Don’t Worry Darling. What makes the timeframe suspect is that Wilde and former fiancé Jason Sudeikis only ended their seven-year engagement in November 2020.
The Daily Mail also quotes sources saying two conflicting stories about the timeline of the entanglement between Wilde, Styles, and Sudeikis. One source maintains that the deterioration of Wilde and Sudeikis’ relationship only happened when Styles entered the picture.
However, another maintains that Wilde and Sudeikis’ relationship had actually ended early in 2020. The 45-year-old comedian supposedly was not surprised that his former fianceé had moved on with Styles.
Harper’s Bazaar also assembled a timeline of Styles and Wilde’s relationship, noting that different publications have different reports on when exactly Wilde and Sudeikis broke their relationship off.
Whatever the timeline, the publication reports that both Styles and Wilde worked hard to keep their blossoming relationship a secret. The source quoted by the publication says the couple were “careful” and “sleuthy,” although people on the set of Don’t Worry Darling eventually found out.
Recent sightings, however, show that Wilde and Styles are done keeping their relationship a secret. A few days ago, the couple was seen together in public enjoying a walk in Santa Barbara, California.
The sighting came a few days after they were spotted holding hands during the wedding of Styles’ manager Jeff Azos to Glenne Christiaansen. That hand-holding photo started the reports of the two being in a relationship.
Styles and Wilde took their walk with a couple of their friends who were also present at the wedding. The foursome were even photographed at a parking lot talking and having a laugh.
The 10-year age difference between Wilde and Styles has also been the subject of a number of articles, although this is not the first time Styles has dated an older woman. Back in 2011, Styles had a relationship with Caroline Flack, a television host with who he had a 14-year age difference.
