Notoriously private star Olivia Wilde has opened up about her new romance with former One Direction bandmate Harry Styles.
The actress and director, 38, said she and the former One Direction heartthrob, 28, share a ‘deep love’ – but refused to be drawn further into talking about their relationship because they ‘go out of their way to protect it’.
Olivia, who met Harry while directing him in her new film Don’t Worry Darling, admitted she wants to remain tight-lipped about her new romance due to her highly-publicised bitter split with ex-fiancé Jason Sudeikis, 46, with whom she shares two young children.

Speaking about her new romance in an interview with Variety magazine, she said: ‘I’m not going to say anything about it because I’ve never seen a relationship benefit from being dragged into the public arena.’
She added: ‘We both go out of our way to protect our relationship; I think it’s out of experience, but also just out of deep love.’
The pair have been romantically linked since January 2021.
Olivia and ex Jason were in a relationship for nearly a decade from 2011 to 2020 and in the same interview, she blasted her former fiancé for serving her custody papers in front of a large audience while onstage at the 2022 CinemaCon in April.

The actress how now called the ugly incident ‘an attack on her workplace’, but said she was not surprised at it happening because there was a ‘reason’ she left that relationship.
Olivia and Jason, who first met in 2011, have two children together – son Otis, eight, and daughter Daisy, five.
Four months ago, Olivia was on stage at the ComicCon event in Las Vegas to promote her upcoming film Don’t Worry Darling when she was ambushed with a petition from Jason – who wanted their children to live with him in New York City.
The actress slammed her ex-fiancé for the way it happened as she told Variety in her cover story: ‘It was my workplace. In any other workplace, it would be seen as an attack.
‘It was really upsetting. It shouldn’t have been able to happen. There was a huge breach in security, which is really scary.
‘The hurdles that you had to jump through to get into that room with several badges, plus special COVID tests that had to be taken days in advance, which gave you wristbands that were necessary to gain access to the event — this was something that required forethought.’

The House star did not hold back, as she explained: ‘To try to sabotage that was really vicious. But I had a job to do; I’m not easily distracted.
‘But, you know, sadly, it was not something that was entirely surprising to me. I mean, there’s a reason I left that relationship.’
A source close to the former couple told DailyMail.com exclusively in April that Jason had ‘no idea’ the papers were being served to her in that way.
‘Jason had no idea that this was happening,’ the insider shared. ‘Nobody knew until the photos suddenly appeared. He is appalled about the whole thing and never would have wanted Olivia to be put in this kind of situation.
‘His sole priority is their children and making sure that they are safe and happy.’
The Booksmart director got candid as she said that the children they share together are the only real victims in the ugliness between the former couple.

Olivia said: ‘The only people who suffered were my kids, because they’ll have to see that, and they shouldn’t ever have to know that happened. For me, it was appalling, but the victims were an 8- and 5-year-old, and that’s really sad.’
The actress recently received a legal win when a judge ruled California was the home state of their kids and last week an insider told People that she ‘wants to focus on what’s best for the kids’ and opened up about their custody issues.
‘She and Jason don’t speak to each other, so they have help communicating about the custody schedule,’ the source said.
While Olivia is ‘upset about the custody drama’, she still wants their children to see their father ‘as much as possible.’
‘She hopes they can figure out the best living situation for everyone,’ the insider said of the actress.
