Olivia Wilde Is ‘Happier Than Ever’ With Harry Styles

“Tempted to correct a false narrative.”

Olivia Wilde is living her best time of her life with her boyfriend Harry Styles. The duo began dating after they started working together on her upcoming film Don’t Worry Darling. The Booksmart director, 37, is featured in Vogue’s January issue, and in an accompanying profile, Wilde opened up about her relationship with pop star Harry Styles telling the magazine she’s “happier” than she’s ever been.

Olive Wilde, 37, has garnered a lot of attention or rather sexist criticism for being a woman in her 30s and dating a man a decade younger. But the actress revealed that she’s honestly unbothered by it on a personal level.

“It’s obviously really tempting to correct a false narrative,” Wilde started when asked if she wanted to address the commentary. “But I think what you realize 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.”

She continued: “In the past 10 years, as a society, we have placed so much more value on the opinion of strangers rather than the people closest to us. [But] I’m happier than I’ve ever been. And I’m healthier than I’ve ever been, and it’s just wonderful to feel that.”

Wilde was previously engaged to Jason Sudeikis, with whom she shares son Otis, 7, and daughter Daisy, 5. The former couple split in November 2020, and the actor, 46, has since been dating his Ted Lasso costar Keeley Hazell

While Olivia Wilde avoided talking about Harry Styles during the interview to protect her privacy, she hinted at how her children’s decision about her dating as a single mother has been welcomed by them.

“Parenting forces you to be honest about how you live your life. It puts in sharp, clear focus decisions you’re making,” the actress, 37, told Vogue in her January 2022 cover story, published online on Thursday, December 9. “I think we owe it to children to be happy. They sense it. They’re so intuitive. The idea that you can trick your kids into thinking you’re happy is ludicrous.” 

With that we can also safely say that Olivia Wilde is making sure to take things slowly and mindfully with building new relationships.

Wilde recently made their relationship with the “Watermelon Sugar” singer a family affair by bringing her kids and parents to one of his California concerts. She was spotted singing and dancing with Otis and Daisy in a fan video last month.

In addition to her new family affair, Wilde is also “coparenting well” with Sudeikis since calling it quits. A source told Us Weekly in July that she wishes her ex-husband nothing but the best in his relationship with Hazell, 35. “She’s happy for him if he’s happy with whomever he’s dating,” the insider added at the time.
