Ever since Olivia Wilde reportedly started dating Harry Styles after ending her nine-year-long engagement to Jason Sudeikis, she’s faced a wave of public scrutiny regarding their dating life.

It’s highly speculated that Wilde and Styles are dating, and while they have never formally confirmed their relationship, they’ve implied that they’re together in a series of interviews.

While the actor-director usually stays relatively tight-lipped about the relationship she appears to share with the 28-year-old singer, she’s addressed the public scrutiny she’s experienced.
During an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Wilde was asked how she keeps her composure when so much of her private life is made public.

“I mean, the thing, is like it’s hard, it’s hard,” she began. “It’s hard sometimes, but at the end of the day I’m so lucky and there’s people dealing with so many really hard things. The people of Jackson, Mississippi don’t have water, there’s people everywhere dealing with real health crises and, you know, my stuff is out there but I’m alive and my kids are alive and that’s what gets me through. I remind myself of that every single day.”

The Don’t Worry Darling director told Clarkson that she actively tries to stay off the internet so she doesn’t see negative news about herself.

“Once you stop trying to control the narrative. I mean, I’m not on the internet, I’m not on Instagram. I don’t advise it,” she said.

“I think that really helps, and just focus on what’s really your trusted circle of friends, what’s real, things that make you happy, people you love, people who love you, and just keeping your mind on what’s real. I think that’s how I get through it. And, also watching people – my colleagues – get through it.

She added, “I think, god it could be a lot worse and we’re alive and everything’s going to be okay.”
