Pop star Harry Styles has touched upon on the criticism surrounding his relationship with filmmaker and actress Olivia Wilde, and the two marked few “toxic negativity” that has encircled their relationship.
The British singer and songwriter Styles, who has always kept his relationship private with actress Olivia Wilde recently shared rare comments.
The popstar commented about the bitter criticism pointed at Wilde in certain sections of the internet in a Rolling Stone cover story that was broadcasted on Monday, addressing Twitter as a “s**tstorm of people trying to be awful to people.”
Even so, to a large extent, he sees the good in his fans, yet it is not a secret anymore that huge communities and followership can procreate intense dislike.
In 2020 on the set of Don’t Worry Darling the couple met, which was a directorial follow-up to Booksmart of Wilde. They were snapped as an element in early 2021 after attending a wedding together.
The 28-year-old Harry has earned thousands of fans by his teen-turned-adult heartthrob status, A few of whom are exceedingly, vocally critical of whoever he dates on social media.
Styles and his girlfriend of almost two years Olivia Wilde spoke a little to Rolling Stone about what it has been like subsisting with this.
Not mentioning Wilde directly, Styles explained why he has kept his love life private “I’ve never talked about my life away from work publicly and found that it’s benefited me positively. There’s always going to be a version of a narrative, and I think I just decided I wasn’t going to spend the time trying to correct it or redirect it in some way,” said Styles.
In spite of those boundaries he set, sometimes, “other people blur the lines for you,” the Briton continued, adding that very early into dating someone, he has to talk about the perimeter of his fan base.
“Can you imagine going on a second date with someone and being like, ‘Okay, there’s this corner of the thing, and they’re going to say this, and it’s going to be really crazy, and they’re going to be really mean, and it’s not real.… But anyway, what do you want to eat?’”
Styles expressed that he wonders himself how best to reply when the commentary gets too loud. “It’s obviously a difficult feeling to feel like being close to me means you’re at the ransom of a corner of Twitter or something,” he said. “I just wanted to sing. I didn’t want to get into it if I was going to hurt people like that.”
Tactfully addressing her own experience with his fans, Wilde described them as “deeply loving people” on the whole.
“What I don’t understand about the cruelty you’re referencing is that that kind of toxic negativity is the antithesis of Harry, and everything he puts out there. I don’t personally believe the hateful energy defines his fan base at all. The majority of them are true champions of kindness,” the 38-year-old filmstar added.
