The Booksmart director consciously-uncoupled from fiancé Jason Sudeikis in November 2020, per PeopleThe Ted Lasso star and Wilde have two children together, son Otis Alexander and daughter Daisy Josephine, and have been together since November 2011.

Harry Styles will star in Olivia Wilde's new film

While Harry Styles has been making waves for his new position as this decade's style icon, he can count another role among his recent achievements — his return to the big screen. After his 2017 debut in Dunkirk, Styles will make his second blockbuster appearance with the upcoming 1950s period film Don't Worry Darling. The star-studded cast also includes Florence Pugh, Chris Pine, and Dakota Johnson. And guess who's directing? 

Don't Worry auteur Olivia Wilde told Vogue that she wanted to cast Style due to his fashionable challenges of traditional gender norms. "I hope that this brand of confidence as a male that Harry has — truly devoid of any traces of toxic masculinity — is indicative of his generation and therefore the future of the world," Wilde explained. "I think he is in many ways championing that, spearheading that. It's pretty powerful and kind of extraordinary to see someone in his position redefining what it can mean to be a man with confidence."

It seems like her admiration of Styles' confidence extended off-set. Wilde, 36, was seen holding hands with Styles, 26, at his agent's wedding in Montecito, Calif. on Jan. 3, 2021. According to Page Six, the pair drove together to the wedding venue in Styles' vintage convertible. While TMZ deemed Styles and Wilde a new couple, the Daily Mail confirmed that the duo have been "spending a lot of time together in recent weeks," including visits to each others' homes. Might these two be on a wintry "Watermelon Sugar" high? Only time will tell!
