While a source told the publication that the duo ‘fell for each other’ on the set of her movie Don’t Worry Darling, with the singer reportedly introducing Olivia as his ‘girlfriend’ at the wedding.
Prior to this, Harry and Olivia are said to have spent time alone at James Corden’s home with The Late Late Show host allowing the singer to stay while filming on the Palm Springs set.
A source told the publication: ‘This relationship between Harry and Olivia is very new. Olivia has been directing Harry in the movie in Palm Springs, and there were literally 10 people on the set, because they were strictly adhering to COVID rules.
‘Harry had been staying at James Corden’s house near Palm Springs during filming, and so they were able to be alone and keep their relationship very secret.
‘So everyone was really surprised — and rather delighted — when Harry brought Olivia as his date to the wedding, and introduced her as his girlfriend.’
The source added that Harry doesn’t give a ‘f**k* about the 10-year age gap and was ‘openly holding hands and kissing Olivia’.
MailOnline has contacted both Olivia and Harry’s representatives for comment.
Elsewhere, a source told The Sun: ‘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.
‘It’s no surprise something has happened, but now they’re quite open about it and out and about as a couple. They went to a wedding together with a lot of their friends there.
‘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.’
Olivia was engaged to fiancé Jason Sudeikis, 45, for over eight years but it was reported in November 2020 that they had split earlier in the year, with nothing to suggest that Harry had any involvement in the decision to part.
Us Weekly reported at the time that Olivia and Jason, who are parents to son Otis, six, and daughter Daisy, four, were ‘never going to get married’ and often ‘butted heads’.
An insider claimed: ‘There were arguments and fights over career decisions and where to live. Like most couples, they had disagreements, they were bi-coastal but Jason loved living in New York and Olivia, who was born in NYC, was leaning more toward Los Angeles.’
Harry took over Shia LaBeouf’s role as Florence Pugh’s love interest in Olivia’s new horror film Don’t Worry Darling in September. It is his first screen role since the 2017 movie Dunkirk.

Hitting back: In November, Olivia famously defended Harry’s choice to wear a dress on the cover of Vogue, after he became the first man to appear solo on the cover of the fashion bible
Olivia recently told People that she ‘did a little dance’ when Harry agreed to sign-on to her directorial project.
‘[Designer Arianne Phillips] and 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. And 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.’

The psychological thriller is set in the 1950s, and is Olivia’s second directorial effort after 2019’s critically-acclaimed Booksmart.
The impressive cast also boasts turns from Chris Pine, Gemma Chan, KiKi Layne and Nick Kroll.
Pine also told of his delight at the British singer joining the project.
He told ET: ‘Harry Styles is an absolute delight. He’s one of the most professional people I’ve ever met. Couldn’t be kinder, more gracious, I mean, really, I was stunned by this kid. He’s off-the-charts cool.’

It had been reported that Shia had been forced to drop out due to a scheduling conflict, but in November, it was claimed Wilde had fired the Transformers star for violating her ‘zero a**hole policy’ on set.
A source close to the production described the actor as ‘off-putting’ and ‘not an easy guy to work with.’
The actor was recently sued by his ex-girlfriend FKA twigs for physical and sexual assault.
In November, Olivia famously defended Harry’s choice to wear a dress on the cover of Vogue, after he became the first man to appear solo on the cover of the fashion bible.
Author Candace Owens, criticised Harry’s choice of clothing and said it made him look weak.

She said: ‘There is no society that can survive without strong men. The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminization of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack. Bring back manly men.’
Olivia then hit back on Twitter and wrote: ‘You’re pathetic.’
Harry has previously dated the likes of Victoria’s Secret model Camille Rowe, 30, Portuguese model Sara Sampaio, 28, and London-based chef and blogger, Tess Ward, 27.
He’s also dated singer Taylor Swift, 31, model Kendall Jenner, 25, and late TV presenter Caroline Flack in 2011, when he was aged 17 and she was aged 32.
