Olivia Wilde Celebrated After Harry Styles Joined the “Don't Worry Darling” Cast

She pulled out a victory dance.

As it turns out, fans weren't the only ones celebrating when Harry Styles landed his next major movie role.

Back in September, the entire internet rejoiced when Harry joined Olivia Wilde's upcoming film, Don't Worry Darling. The star-studded cast includes a roster of top talent, including Florence Pugh, Chris Pine, and Dakota Johnson. As for Harry, this is his first new role since the 2017 release of Dunkirk.

In a new interview with Vogue, Olivia confessed that she also joined in on the excitement when Harry signed onto her film. In fact, she, along with the film's costume designer Arianne Phillips, did a “victory dance” to celebrate the news. The Booksmart director further explained: "We knew that he has a real appreciation for fashion and style. And this movie is incredibly stylistic. It’s very heightened and opulent, and I’m really grateful that he is so enthusiastic about that element of the process — some actors just don’t care.”

She continued, pointing to Harry's rejection of gender norms through his style choices, saying, "I hope that this brand of confidence as a male that Harry has — truly devoid of any traces of toxic masculinity — is indicative of his generation and therefore the future of the world. I think he is in many ways championing that, spearheading that. It’s pretty powerful and kind of extraordinary to see someone in his position redefining what it can mean to be a man with confidence.”

The film will take place in the 1950s, Collider previously reported, and Florence is set to portray “an unhappy housewife who slowly begins to question her own sanity when she starts to notice strange occurrences in her small, utopian community in the California desert.” Harry will play her husband. The singer was cast to replace Shia Labeouf, who had to drop out of the film due to a scheduling conflict.

Don't Worry Darling doesn't have a confirmed release date yet, but production on the film started up this fall. However, earlier this month, a member of the filming crew had tested positive for COVID-19, and filming was halted, Deadline reports. Sources told Deadline that after a two-week quarantine period, filming would resume.
