Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde's romance is no longer the same as it was.

The couple and Don't Worry Darling co-stars are taking a break after about two years of dating, E! News confirms. 

"He's still touring and is now going abroad. She is focusing on her kids and her work in L.A.," one source told People. "It's a very amicable decision."

Prior to dating Harry, Olivia was engaged to Jason Sudeikis, with whom she shares son Otis, 8, and daughter Daisy, 6. News that she and the Ted Lasso star quietly ended their nine-year relationship surfaced in November 2020, after Harry joined the cast of Don't Worry Darling.

In a December 2020 interview with Vogue, the actress recalled how she and the film's costume designer Arianne Phillips "did a little victory dance" when they initially learned that Harry had signed onto the project, which Olivia also directed.

Describing the One Direction alum as a man "truly devoid of any traces of toxic masculinity" with a "real appreciation for fashion and style," Olivia said at the time, "I'm really grateful that he is so enthusiastic about that element of the process—some actors just don't care."

Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde's Romance Rewind

The two were first romantically linked in January 2021, when they were snapped holding hands at a wedding for Harry's manager Jeff Azoff. As time went on, the couple were more open about stepping out together, with Olivia sometimes spotted in the crowd at Harry's concerts, but refrained from sharing details about their love lives to the press.

Why? "It's obviously really tempting to correct a false narrative," Wilde told Vogue in January. "But I think what you realize is that when you're really happy, it doesn't matter what strangers think about you. All that matters to you is what's real, and what you love, and who you love."

Harry echoed the same sentiments about privacy in an August profile with Rolling Stone, saying, "If someone takes a picture of you with someone, it doesn't mean you're choosing to have a public relationship or something."

In fact, the duo was so protective of their relationship that they did not walk the red carpet together at the Venice Film Festival premiere of Don't Worry Darling in September. Instead, Harry and Olivia chose to pose for a group shot with actress Sydney Chandler sandwiched between them.

Addressing their notoriously private romance, Olivia later told Variety, "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 go out of our way to protect our relationship; I think it's out of experience, but also just out of deep love."
