Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde Show PDA in Rare Appearance Together

Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde have been spotted holding hands in a rare public sighting of the A-list couple.

The pair were photographed leaving Rubirosa Italian Restaurant in SoHo in New York City on August 18.

Paparazzi photos show the couple hand in hand leaving the restaurant in what is a rare public display of affection from the Don't Worry Darling co-stars who have been romantically linked since early 2021.

Their romance is believed to have blossomed on the set of the movie which Wilde is directing and Styles is starring in opposite Florence Pugh.

The two were first photographed holding hands together at a friend's wedding in January 2021, just months after Wilde and her long-time partner Jason Sudeikis announced their separation.

The former One Direction singer, 28, and Wilde's relationship was cemented when there were photographed on a romantic vacation on a yacht in Italy last July.

In photos published by Page Six, Wilde, 37, and the former One Direction star were seen sunbathing, dancing, sipping wine and having a great time in the Tuscan Monte Argentario region.

Wilde and her ex-fiance Sudeikis are now embroiled in a legal battle over the custody of their two children, Daisy, 5, and Otis, 8.

It has been reported that Wilde is furious with Sudeikis after legal papers were served to her while she was on stage at CinemaCon in Las Vegas in April.

Wilde was on stage promoting Don't Worry Darling, when she was handed an envelope of legal papers.

Wilde said, in a court filing obtained by The Daily Mail, that Sudeikis used "outrageous legal tactics" and that "Jason's actions were clearly intended to threaten me and catch me off guard.

"He could have served me discreetly, but instead he chose to serve me in the most aggressive manner possible."

Legal experts have told Newsweek that the former couple has a "long litigation road ahead" of them.

Newsweek has reached out to both parties for comment.

Sudeikis opened up about his ex-partner moving on with Styles last year, admitting he still doesn't fully understand it.

"I'll have a better understanding of why in a year," he said in an interview with GQ published last July. "And an even better one in two, and an even greater one in five, and it'll go from being, you know, a book of my life to becoming a chapter to a paragraph to a line to a word to a doodle."

The 45-year-old said he is still trying to figure out how the situation reflects on him.

"That's an experience that you either learn from or make excuses about," he told the magazine.

"You take some responsibility for it, hold yourself accountable for what you do, but then also endeavor to learn something beyond the obvious from it."
