Other than the occasional public display of affection on a far flung Italian yacht or side stage support, Olivia Wide and Harry Styles are notoriously private about their budding romance. In a new interview, the actress and filmmaker opened up about her relationship. During the rare personal moment, she admitted that it’s “tempting to correct a false narrative”.

She was asked by the reporter if she wanted to address her love life with the public. “It’s obviously really tempting to correct a false narrative,” Wilde responded. “But I think what you realise is that when you’re really happy it doesn’t matter what strangers think about you. All that matters to you is what’s real, and what you love, and who you love.”

Wilde is often seen sporting Styles’ merchandise which recently included a sweatshirt from his new beauty label, Pleasing. As the singer continued his Love on Tour concerts around the US this year, the actress was also seen at his New York City appearance where she reportedly danced during the entire gig.

Styles briefly touched on his romance last month. According to the “Watermelon Sugar” star, it’s possible he will never speak about his relationships to the press. “I’ve always tried to compartmentalise my personal life and my working life,” he told Dazed.

The couple met in November 2020 on the set of the forthcoming film Don’t Worry Darling which Wilde was directing and where Styles had a starring role. “Harry and Olivia’s relationship was an open secret on the set in Palm Springs,” a source told The Sun when their relationship was first revealed.

Styles has previously been linked to Kendall Jenner and Taylor Swift. Wilde split with her husband in November 2020 after a seven-year engagement. They share two children, Otis, 7, and Daisy, 5.
