If it’s meant to be it’ll be, right?
When Olivia Wilde fired Shia LaBeouf from her upcoming film Don’t Worry Darling for his behavior on set, Harry Styles stepped in.
The director celebrated Harry joining the cast publicly on Instagram in 2021: “Little known fact: most male actors don’t want to play supporting roles in female-led film,” she wrote in her caption. “Enter: @harrystyles, our ‘Jack.’ Not only did he relish the opportunity to allow for the brilliant @florencepugh to hold center stage as our ‘Alice,’ but he infused every scene with a nuanced sense of humanity. He didn’t have to join our circus, but he jumped on board with humility and grace, and blew us away every day with his talent, warmth, and ability to drive backwards.”
The praise was sweet, but fans suspected there was more to it. And as usual, sleuthing fans are rarely wrong. Harry and Olivia hit it off on set two months after Olivia’s split from Jason Sudeikis (with whom she shares two children) and three months after Harry joined the cast.
Since then, they’ve dropped a few hints about their relationship. Take Olivia posting a photo of a watermelon after Harry’s Grammy win for his song “Watermelon Sugar,” and Harry’s most recent single “As It Was,” in which he sings “Leave America, two kids follow her.” More than that, people have actually spotted them being intimate. It’s a rare sighting as they’ve nailed avoiding crowds, but Olivia has not only been spotted at Harry concerts and his home, but they also attended a wedding together and had a romantic vacation in Italy during which they packed on some even rarer PDA.
But even with the limited shared moments, the love they have for each other is clear, according to body language expert Karen Donaldson. Ahead, she describes what every move and touch means for the couple’s future.

Olivia and Harry’s emotional connection runs deep.
“Their strides are the same length, and they are using the exact same feet,” Donaldson points out. While it might seem like no biggie, feet reveal a lot about what’s going on in someone’s head. “It tells us they are emotionally connected at a high level,” explains Donaldson. “Their emotional awareness of each other has become subconscious, which is why we see them walking in tandem without even looking or trying.” Harry and Olivia are completely in sync when it comes to mindset and future goals.
They treasure their time together, making the most of every moment.
You’d probably assume they’re on good terms considering the hand holding, but Donaldson says there’s more to it: “In this image, their fingers are intertwined. They are maximizing their skin-to-skin contact, telling us that they don’t want to be apart.” Even with all the things they’re carrying, they’ve found a way to balance them in one hand each so they can stay physically connected. And, according toUs Weekly, Harry gave Olivia a shoutout during the speech he gave at the wedding they’re attending in this pic. They’ve got something good between them.
They’ve made each other a priority.
“Harry leans into Olivia’s intimate space with the kiss, and his upper body stays in her personal space,” says Donaldson. While Olivia was reading, she’s lifted her arms to make room for Harry. She’s welcoming him into her personal space in this moment. “It signals that they are willing make time for each other and each other’s needs,” Donaldson adds.
Harry and Olivia are friends *and* lovers.
Here, they are walking in sync again which signifies the easy rhythm they’ve fallen into with one another. This time, there’s an air of friendship on top of romance, says Donaldson. The evidence? The arms casually slung over each other’s shoulders.
“Olivia and Harry are both doing [that], which can signal that they have a deep friendship in addition to their intimate relationship,” she says. Without being overly touchy, Olivia and Harry are communicating that their relationship is layered—it’s founded in friendship. And it’s likely this relationship started off as a platonic and morphed into something romantic.
