On 4 On January 1st, Olivia Wilde hit the headlines when she was photographed holding hands with Harry Styles

At the time, the rumored couple could be seen at a downsized wedding for Styles’ managers at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California

“They were loving to their friends, holding hands and looking very happy.They have been together for a few weeks,” a source told People

Wilde and Styles met after the singer starred along with Chris Pine and Florence Pugh in Wilde’s new film Don’t Worry, Darling

“Olivia and Harry have been together on set for long days and have got to know each other very well, so it’s all very organic,” a source told Entertainment Tonight

“[Olivia] wouldn’t let a romantic relationship get in the way of a professional, so whatever they do is made thoughtful”

The Wilde and Styles rumors surfaced just months after news of Wilde’s breakup with actor Jason Sudeikis

The couple, who have two children together – son Otis Alexander (six) and daughter Daisy Josephine (four) – were engaged for seven years

Although news of their split came out in November, sources claimed their relationship ended much earlier

“The split came early in the year It was amicable and they have become a great routine for parenting together,” a source close to the couple told People

And almost immediately Olivia Wilde turned into the villain. She became the 36-year-old woman who moved on with a much younger man The actress and director who “risked everything” for her “boy toy” The mother of two children who has “torn apart” her family by preferring her new love life to her children

After the paparazzi photos surfaced, sources claimed the couple’s breakup overlapped with Wilde’s first meeting with Styles

“Olivia broke off the engagement in early November, but only after she got close to Harry,” a source told us Weekly

“Whether Harry knows it or not, he was a reason for the split and it blinded Jason – he totally adores Olivia and is devastated. Family is his top priority”

The publication later reported that Sudeikis is “desperate” to win back savages so they can “fix their families.”

“Jason had no choice but to step back and let Olivia do her thing, but he [crosses your fingers] that this is just a phase and that Olivia will pull it off or that Harry will get bored and move on soon “claimed a source

“She was an absolute rock for Jason in that nightmare you talk and write every day,” a source told Heat

When the tabloid narrative changed, Olivia Wilde was forced to narrow down her Instagram comments after an intense string of negative comments

While Styles received only a few negative comments, Wilde has seen endless backlash Social media users told her to “be ashamed” and “ashamed” of her new relationship

From Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone (23 years old) and Jay-Z and Beyoncé (12 years old) to Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds (11 years) to Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde (10 years), nobody beats an eyelid Men in Hollywood date younger women

In 2011, the former One Direction member was connected to Caroline Flack, who was 14 years older than him

“I already knew he had a crush on me, he made it pretty obvious,” wrote Flack in her autobiography Storm in a C Cup, “He said it in magazines and he told friends”

“Once that was out, it was open season – everyone could say something. On the street, people started yelling” pedophile “and” perverted “at me,” Flack wrote

It was similar for Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, who share an age difference of 10 years

“I find it really amazing when you flip it and the guy is older, nobody cares and actually people like it”

After unsubstantiated rumors surfaced that Wilde and Styles had moved in together, fans used those rumors as ammunition. Suddenly, there was “evidence” that Wilde was “tearing apart” her family and causing instability for their two children

“Imagine separating your family just so you can get together with a younger man Absolutely disgusting So selfish,” wrote one social media user

The question arises if Jason Sudeikis were to date an actor 10 years younger than him, would someone pop an eyelid? Would someone accuse him of “tearing apart” his family? Would anyone even point out that they have two children?
