Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde have taken the spotlight because they are “more serious than ever,” a source tells us PEOPLE†
The singer, 28, and Wilde, 38, met on the set of their movie don’t worry baby back in September 2020. They first got out as a couple while attending a wedding together in January 2021.
Since then, they’ve “found ways to make things work” amid busy schedules for both. “What may have seemed like a flirtation at first is now a committed relationship,” says the source.
“Harry is very smitten,” added the insider. “Olivia has brought out his romantic side very well. He also has a lot of respect for her when it comes to his work. He would love to work with her again. They support each other’s careers.”
Earlier this month, during a conversation with Howard Stern for his SiriusXM show, Styles was asked about Wilde and falling in love on a movie set. Instead, he praised Wilde’s directing skills.
“Acting is sometimes very uncomfortable. I think you have to trust a lot,” he said, adding, “Being able to trust your director is a gift.”
And Wilde equally praised her boyfriend’s work ethic: when she debuted the trailer for don’t worry baby at CinemaCon, she called the project “ambitious” and said during her presentation that Styles’ performance is “truly a revelation”.
