The sweet post on Wilde's social media comes just after filming wrapped up on her upcoming psychological thriller, Don't Worry Darling. The Life Itself star is directing and co-starring in the motion picture, along with the likes of Florence Pugh, Chris Pine, KiKi Layne, Gemma Chan, Nick Kroll, and, of course, Harry Styles. Now that the on-set days are over, Olivia shared appreciation for her rumored beau on Instagram.

"Little known fact: most male actors don't want to play supporting roles in female-led films. The industry has raised them to believe it lessens their power (i.e. financial value) to accept these roles, which is one of the reasons it's so hard to get financing for movies focusing on female stories," Wilde wrote. And now comes the part where she gushes over how incredible Harry Styles is.

"No joke, it is harrrrrd to find actors who recognize why it might be worth it to allow for a woman to hold the spotlight. Enter: @harrystles, our 'Jack,'" Olivia continued. "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. He didn't have to join our circus, but he jumped on board with humility and grace, and blew us away every day with his talent, warmth, and ability to drive backward."

It's not the only time the Hollywood icon has shown some love for the singer, although it is the first time she's done so publicly since the romance rumors started flying. In an interview with Vogue, Wilde confessed she did a "victory dance" when Styles agreed to join the cast. The admirer added, "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 actress also previously came to Harry's defense when he received backlash over his breathtaking Vogue cover shoot.

But Wilde doesn't play favorites when it comes to her budding romance with the former One Direction star. The day before her post dedicated to Styles, the director also showed her appreciation for the film's protagonist, Florence Pugh. "To work with an actor as talented and brave as @florencepugh is any director's dream," Olivia captioned a photo of her and Florence on set. We can't wait to see this power team on our screens soon!
