Harry Styles is currently dating Olivia Wilde.
The former singer from One Direction who managed to create a successful solo music career and act in high-profile movie projects is currently dating Olivia Wilde, who cast Styles in her psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling. Rumors about a romance between Wilde and Styles began around the same time filming began in November of 2020, and there’s been a whole bunch of drama surrounding the union of these two stars.
The source of the drama is the fact that Wilde has two children with her former boyfriend, actor Jason Sudeikis. Different outlets have reported varying opinions and reactions to their relationship. Some folks have commented that they found the relationship between Wilde and Styles “scandalous” namely for two reasons. One: there’s a 10-year age gap between the singer and the actress.
The other reason is the nature and timing of how Wilde and Styles reportedly met one another on the set of her film.
