Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde are never far away – and they are just getting closer.
The singer, who launched a thousand shouts, is in a global PR attack for his new album, which is at the top of the charts, “Harry’s HouseAnd his girlfriend is firmly by his side.
Stiles (28) said that this album is his “most personal” so far, and allusions to the mother of two children Wilde (38) are all over him.
On his hit number 1, “As He Was”, he says: “Leave America, two children follow her / I don’t want to talk about who does it first.”
“Green eyes, fried rice, I could cook an egg on you,” Stiles sings on “Music for Sushi Restaurant”, seemingly pointing to the green eyes of the actress and director.
The couple has been together for more than a year, and a source who knows the singer well told The Post: “This is the happiest thing I’ve ever seen Harry. This is the longest relationship he has ever had.
“Everyone wants to get married and have a baby, but it will happen naturally.”
The couple met in 2020 on the set of the upcoming movie “Don’t Worry, Darling”, directed by Wilde. But had it not been for a reversal of fate, they might never have merged: Styles replaced Shia LaBeouf, who was fired by Wilde before filming began for violating her “zero-hole policy,” as Variety reported.
Insiders said LaBeouf showed “bad behavior” and that his style clashed with the actors and crew, including Wilde.
In the psychological thriller, which is expected on September 23, Styles and another Briton, Florence Pugh play a young married couple. The singer and Wilde are set to embark on a promotional track in September.
This is the second time Stiles has been on screen after his debut in the film “Dunkirk” 2017. Asked about his collaboration with Wilde, he he told Howard Stern last month: “I had a wonderful experience when I was directed by Olivia.
“Acting is sometimes very uncomfortable. I think you have to believe a lot. It requires a lot of trust if you want to give everything somehow, and I think the ability to trust your director is a gift, so it was very helpful. ”
Wilde equally praised her boyfriend’s work ethic. Debuting in the trailer for “Don’t Worry Darling” at CinemaCon in April, she called Style’s performance a “truly a revelation”.
“Harry is happy, Olivia looks happy, she is currently following him around because of his schedule. He is not currently working on any films. They manage to do it when Harry goes to work, ”said Style’s friend.
Stiles is already close with Wilde’s children, Otis (8) and Daisy (5), from her relationship with actor Jason Sudekis. At one sympathetic moment, the children were seen jumping at Style’s concert in San Diego in November with Wilde and the singer’s mom, Ann Twist.
However, the relationship is “obviously difficult” for Sudeikis, who had children who lived with him in London while filming his award-winning Apple + hit “Ted Lasso”, according to sources who know the family.
As The Post wrote, there is controversy over when Styles and Wilde they actually got togetherwith rumors that the singer was the catalyst for her breakup with Sudeikis.
Wilde and alum “Saturday Night Live” announced their breakup in November 2020 after seven years together. She and Stiles debuted as a couple in January 2021 at the wedding of his manager Jeffrey Azoff.
But one insider told The Post that Wilde’s relationship with Stiles actually took place back in October 2020, leaving Sudeikis insane.
The actor (46) and his legal team are trying to determine where the children will live full time. The upcoming third season of the “Lasso” series will be her last, as writer and colleague Brett Goldstein told the UK Sunday Times recently, and Sudekis plans to return to a home in Brooklyn that he shared with Wilde.
“Jason wants to return to Brooklyn to the original family base, where he will help take care of his children,” said a family source.
Styles owns a large house in north London, and sources recently told People that he and Wilde enjoy spending time together in his native England, where people “respect their privacy”.
Wilde was embarrassed handed over legal papers relating to the jurisdiction of their children while they were on the CinemaCon stage in April. However, sources close to Sudekis told Six at the time that he was an actor he had no knowledge of the planswhere one insider said: “The papers have been drawn up to establish jurisdiction over the children of Ms. Wilde and Mr. Sudeikis.
“Sir. Sudeikis knew neither the time nor the place where the envelope would be delivered, as it would be solely on the company involved in the process and he would never allow it to be delivered to her in such an inappropriate way.”
Despite that, a music source told The Post: “In any case, give the documents to Olivia, but don’t embarrass her, this is the mother of your children.” I don’t know if Jason’s camp thought Harry would be there either. “
Being a potential stepfather is far from Harry’s days in One Direction.
All five members are now on their way, and earlier this month, Liam Payne received criticism after his interview on the Impaulsive podcast with Logan Paul, where he gave a series of comments about his former bandmates it didn’t go well with the fans.
Payne, 28, claimed to have surpassed his One Direction counterparts with his debut solo single “Strip That Down”.
He said: “We made the first song, a billion streams. I think he surpassed everyone in the band… ”
However, fans pointed out that the song currently has only 800,000 streams and claimed that Malik’s “Pillowtalk” and Style’s “Sign of the Times” were more successful.
One high-ranking insider who worked with One Direction during his time together told The Post: “All the guys left their core fans and diversified. Each of them tried to project and find their own identity, because they all had a pretty personal identity in the group.
“They didn’t want to be seen as a ‘boy band’ anymore, and that desire for solo attention can overcome team spirit.”
Styles, the insider said, was “quite ambitious” and definitely likes to be with and around famous people.
“There are a lot of people in a very good place who listen and from whom they receive advice. He does not make waves and will not come into conflict with anyone. He never likes to disturb people, even though he quietly does what he wants to do for himself – I don’t think he does it even consciously! “
Stiles also never spoke badly about his time in One Direction, or about his bandmates.
“Despite everything,” explained the One Direction insider, “the boys had an amazing time together, even before Zayn [Malik] left, which he didn’t even plan so much in advance. “
As Style’s friend said, “He has a pretty mature head on his shoulders.”
