The 36-year-old director and actress has heaped praise on her boyfriend, Harry, for his work in her upcoming movie ‘Don’t Worry Darling’, as she said it’s “so hard” to find an actor who is willing to play “supporting roles in female-led films”.

Olivia met Harry on the set of the movie which recently wrapped filming, and she also gushed over her beau's "sense of humanity”, and said she was “blown away” by his “talent” and “warmth”.

She captioned an Instagram post:

“No joke, it is hard to find actors who recognize why it might be worth it to allow for a woman to hold the spotlight. Enter: @harrystyles, our "Jack". Not only did he relish the opportunity to allow for the brilliant @florencepugh to hold centre stage as our "Alice", but he infused every scene with a nuanced sense of humanity."

The post comes after the new couple were reported to be getting “very serious”.
