Director Olivia Wilde Praises Harry Styles For Playing Supporting Role “To Allow For A Woman To Hold The Spotlight”

Olivia Wilde took to Instagram on Monday to praise Harry Styles’ work in her current directorial effort, Don’t Worry Darling. Wilde has been vocal about creating a level playing field on set as part of her “no a**holes policy.”

Most male actors don’t want to play supporting roles in female-led films,” she says.

Of singer Styles, who’s acting in the film centered on Florence Pugh’s character she observed, “Not only did he relish the opportunity to allow for the brilliant @florencepugh to hold center stage as our ‘Alice’, but he infused every scene with a nuanced sense of humanity.”

The praise for Styles comes after he replaced Shia Labeouf in the film last fall.
