Wait, did Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde secretly tie the knot?! That seems to be the question on everyone’s minds these days, after a news outlet reported that they got low-key married during their recent trip to Italy. Well, we may finally have an answer! While walking through Los Angeles International Airport recently, Wilde was asked about the alleged wedding, and she addressed the rumors — well sort of.
“There’s a massive Internet conspiracy that you and Harry are already married. Not true? True?” a paparazzi said to the actress as she headed to her car.
“I’m never going to talk to you guys,” she responded. Ugh, come on, give us something here! We guess if they did exchange their vows during the luxurious vacation, they want to keep it a secret for now.
What Do We Know About The Rumored Wedding?
The internet practically went into a frenzy last week when Life & Style Magazine reported that the pair had wed after only six months together. They claimed that the One Direction member even designed a $185,000 ring and that the Booksmart star “couldn’t wait to start a family.”

“Harry snuck off in the U.K. about a month ago to design an engagement ring. It has a diamond and a sapphire,” a source told them. “Friends had a feeling he was going to propose to Olivia later in the year, but some now think it’s already happened!”
Styles and Wilde were spotted all over Italy over the last month, and the insider added that it’s the “ideal place to propose.” An onlooker who spotted them during their vacation told the outlet that the couple “acted like they were just married” and “looked like honey-mooners.” However, a rep for Styles denied that they got married.
When Did They Start Dating?
It’s still unclear when Styles and Wilde officially started dating, but according to Entertainment Tonight, they grew super close during their time on set of their new movie Don’t Worry Darling (which Styles is starring in and Wilde is directing), and romantic feelings started to develop.
“Olivia and Harry are together for long days on set and have gotten to know each other really well, so it’s all very organic,” a source said. “[Wilde] wouldn’t let a romantic relationship get in the way of a professional one, so anything they’re doing is being done thoughtfully. So it’s not like she’s rushing into something.”
The pair confirmed their love on January 4, 2021, when they were spotted holding hands at Styles’ manager, Jeff Azoff‘s wedding, and the internet quickly went into a frenzy over the pairing. And according to Us Weekly, Styles and Wilde were “very careful” to keep their relationship private at first.
“Olivia and Harry were able to keep their relationship under wraps for a bit before it became public knowledge,” an insider explained. “They were very careful about it and even sleuthy at times, although the small group of people who were on set with them every day eventually figured it out.”
The Sun added that their 10-year age gap definitely wasn’t a problem for the two stars.
“They clicked immediately — they’re both very artistic, passionate people and it was one of those things where straight away everyone could see they had a spark,” a source said. “Clearly they’re enjoying themselves and the age gap really isn’t a thing. Harry has obviously famously had a thing for older women but he’s just extremely mature himself, you’d never think there was a decade between them.”
What Have They Said About Each Other?
After Styles landed his role in Don’t Worry Darling, Wilde couldn’t stop gushing over him to Vogue Magazine.
“I did a little victory dance when we heard that we officially had Harry in the film, because we knew that he has a real appreciation for fashion and style,” she explained. “This movie is incredibly stylistic. It’s very heightened and opulent, and I’m really grateful that he is so enthusiastic about that element of the process — some actors just don’t care. To me, he’s very modern, and 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. 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.”
Plus, after the movie wrapped filming in February 2021, the 36-year-old took to Instagram to praise the “Sign of the Times” crooner. She wrote, “Little known fact: most male actors don’t want to play supporting roles in female-led films. The industry has raised them to believe it lessens their power (i.e financial value) to accept these roles, which is one of the reasons it’s so hard to get financing for movies focusing on female stories. No joke, it is harrrrrd to find actors who recognize why it might be worth it to allow for a woman to hold the spotlight. 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.”
