“Harry and Olivia had chemistry almost instantaneously on set,” a source told Us Weekly on Monday, January 4. “It was only a matter of time before they got together.”
The former One Direction member, 26, and actress-turned-director, 36, sparked major dating rumors on Monday after New York Post’s Page Six published photos of the pair holding hands and looking romantic at Styles’ manager’s wedding in Montecito, California. While officiating the ceremony, the “Watermelon Sugar” singer — who’s starring in the upcoming thriller directed by Wilde — referred to the Booksmart director as his “girlfriend,” a second source told Us Weekly.
“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,” the newspaper’s source said. “So everyone was really surprised — and rather delighted — when Harry brought Olivia as his date to the wedding, and introduced her as his girlfriend.”
