Are Olivia Wilde & Harry Styles Still Together? A Sneaky New Video Of Olivia Just Answered That

It's the enthusiastic dancing for us.

By Jess Pullar
Thanks to the internet, no detail pertaining to Don't Worry Darling—and the people behind it—has been spared. At the Venice Film Festival, the cast put their best, calmest faces forward (bar Harry Styles' alleged liberalness with his spit), and in the weeks that have followed, they've remained aloof as ever.
"Nothing to see here," you can almost hear them say. But we weren't to be fooled.
Between a supposed feud between Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh and the chaotic events of the Venice Film Festival, an unmatched media frenzy has erupted.
Naturally, it's led people to scrutinise the relationship between said saliva sharer Styles and his girlfriend, Olivia Wilde. In the not-so-humble opinion of numerous internet users, the notoriously private couple had an opportunity to distract the world from the feud rumours in Venice.
But for unconfirmed reasons, the pair gave us precisely zilch in the PDA department that time around. As purveyors of media ourselves, we can confidently say that even a peck on the cheek or an arm around the waist moment between the couple would have posed the ultimate a runaway angle for publications to toy with. Alas, Wilde and Styles did not oblige, and it led to another potential runaway story angle: was it because they've broken up?

Are Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde still together?

Despite the spicy rumours, we can say with confidence that yes, Olvia and Harry are still together.
The most recent clue to confirm as much came via a sleuthy TikTokker who got a glimpse of the filmmaker at Styles' concert and had the good sense to capture the moment on camera.
In the video, Wilde dances enthusiastically to her boyf's music. If that's not love, we don't know what is. See the video in question here.
To further confirm things are A-okay between the lovebirds, the DWD cast got together once again (sans Miss Flo) in mid-September for the New York City premiere of the film.
There, we got one small moment between Styles and Wilde where the pair were pictured talking on the red carpet.
Alas, that was all we were given. No peck, no hand hold, virtually zero PDA. Still, the interaction may as well equate to a full-blown pash by their standards.

Why did fans think they had broken up?

Let's answer this one by starting from the beginning.
Reports claim that Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde got together sometime in 2020 while they filmed Don't Worry Darling. That means they've managed to keep most details about their relationship away from the spotlight for almost two years. For any celebrity couple, two years is usually more than enough time to solidify themselves and climatise to the balancing act of maintaining a relationship in the spotlight.
Albeit a little later than other famous couples before them, Wilde and Styles finally addressed their relationship in their first joint interview with Rolling Stone in August 2022.
"I've never talked about my life away from work publicly and found that it's benefited me positively," Styles told the publication. "There's always going to be a version of a narrative, and I think I just decided I wasn't going to spend the time trying to correct it or redirect it in some way."
Of course, the next major milestone in any Hollywood couple's timeline is the highly anticipated red carpet debut. It's essentially a rite of passage—the hard launch, if you will—there's a media frenzy, the pictures go viral and relationship timeline articles are updated across the ether.
And that, dear reader, brings us to the break up rumours. While Styles and Wilde both appeared on the same red carpet in Venice, they never showed any sign of contact. Not once. Not even when the entire cast posed for a photo together.
To make matters worse, a seemingly awkward encounter in a red carpet video surfaced which convinced some fans that something was up—depending on how willing you are to trust a pixelated screen.
In the clip, Wilde was seen preparing for more photos when an assistant appeared to usher Styles to stand next to her, but it looked as though Styles snubbed the suggestion. Instead, he fist bumped Nick Kroll before positioning himself between Gemma Chan and Chandler.

To add fuel to the fire, the internet essentially combusted over Styles' "spitgate" encounter with Chris Pine, who again, was seated conveniently between Wilde and the British singer during the actual movie screening.
In the video, Wilde was seen looking at the rumoured spit on Chris Pine's lap while Styles took his seat with a satisfied smirk on his face.
It was all very mysterious, but there was no denying the couple's behaviour was decidedly uncouply.
"I think Harry + Olivia have split or had a big fight. They actively avoid eye contact," one eagle-eyed viewer wrote on Twitter.
"The photo of them at the premier of DWD they looked distanced and uncomfortable if they haven't already," another wrote.

How did they get together?

Wilde split with her long-term partner, Jason Sudeikis, with whom she shares two kids in early 2020. At the time, ET spoke to a source who said there was no bad blood between the former couple: "They just fell out of love in a romantic way, but still have love towards one another as people. They consider themselves friends and co-parents first and foremost."
In November that year, Wilde opened up about casting Styles in her film, Don't Worry Darling.
"[Costume designer Arianne Phillips] and I did a little victory dance when we heard that we officially had Harry in the film, because we knew that he has a real appreciation for fashion and style," Wilde said at the time.
While it's unclear exactly when Wilde and Styles began a romantic relationship, they were spotted in January 2021 holding hands at a friends wedding.
"They were in Montecito, California this weekend for a wedding," a source told People. "They were affectionate around their friends, held hands and looked very happy. They have dated for a few weeks."
ET also claimed that the pair's relationship had grown on the set of Don't Worry Darling.
"Olivia and Harry are together for long days on set and have gotten to know each other really well, so it's all very organic. [Olivia] wouldn't let a romantic relationship get in the way of a professional one, so anything they're doing is being done thoughtfully."
Of course, 18 months have passed since those initial comments, and clearly, a lot has happened since then. But while the behind the scenes narrative around the upcoming film is convoluted (to say the least), it pays to note that nothing can be confirmed until it comes straight from Wilde or Styles reps.
