Olivia Wilde is determined to “protect” her romance with Harry Styles.

The 38-year-old actress and Harry, 28, started dating last year – but the celebrity couple are keen to keep their relationship out of the spotlight.

Olivia – who has Otis, eight, and Daisy, five, with her former fiancé Jason Sudeikis – explained: “I’m not going to say anything about it because I’ve never seen a relationship benefit from being dragged into the public arena.

“We both strive to protect our relationship; I think it’s out of experience, but also out of deep love.”

Olivia directed Harry in his new psychological thriller, ‘Don’t Worry Darling,’ and the pop star relished the experience of working with her.

Harry shared: “As a director, Olivia is incredibly focused. She communicated what she was looking for from the cast with clarity and respect.

“I think the transition from acting to directing has made her a director who knows how to bring out the best in everyone.”

Harry stars in the film alongside Florence Pugh and Chris Pine.

Olivia insists she relished the experience of working with Florence, despite rumors of tension between the two.

She told Variety, “We’ve all been so close to the production bubble.

“She was really a huge supporter of [Harry] like someone who was new to a film set. And he was such a huge supporter of her, like someone who understood it was her movie.”

Olivia’s personal life has been in the spotlight since she split from Jason and started dating Harry. And the actress admits it hasn’t been easy coping with the extra attention.

She said: “Over the past two years, my family has been going through this kind of restructuring and a revolution that should be a totally personal experience. And it’s not. The most painful part has been that women m ‘have been shamed for making a decision that was for my health and happiness.”
