Anne Hathaway New Movie Could Be Based On Harry Styles And Olivia Wilde’s Relationship

Anyone else obsessed with the idea of a film based on Harry Styles? Well, our girl Anne Hathaway is having a moment right now, and not just because she brought Devil Wears Prada vibes back into our lives. The male romantic lead in her new movie – The Idea Of You – is rumoured to be based on Styles himself.

What is The Idea of You about and who will be in the cast?

The novel – written by Robinne Lee, who is also a co-producer on the film with Hathaway  – follows the story of a 40-year-old mom and divorcée Sophie, who starts a love affair with a British pop star name Hayes Campbell, who leads boy band, August Moon. Sound familiar yet?

Anne Hathaway will play Sophie, of course, while 28-year-old British actor Nicholas Galitzine (previously seen in Cinderella and Netflix’s Purple Hearts) will play Hayes Campbell.

And is The Idea of You really based on Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde’s relationship?

The novel was published in 2021, and Styles and Wilde started dating in January 2020 – Wilde divorced her husband Jason Sudeikis the same year – so the stories run pretty parallel in numerous ways. However, Lee says things aren’t that clear-cut.

“This was never supposed to be a book about Harry Styles,” she told Vogue in an interview. “It was supposed to be a story about a woman approaching 40 and reclaiming her sexuality and rediscovering herself, just at the point that society traditionally writes women off as desirable and viable and whole. ”

She concedes that she considered both Harry Styles and Prince Harry as inspirations, but Lee also had a relationship with a younger man herself, so it’s perhaps more accurate to say the novel, and film, are made up of a mix of influences.

But whether or not The Idea Of You is about Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde, it’s set to bring some important issues to the forefront. Lee describes wanting to express the feeling of “restlessness” women feel, “exploring how women of a certain age cease to be seen. ”

“You want to just live the way you’ve lived when you were in college, or your early twenties, when you freedom and you never have to think of anyone but yourself,” she explains.

“You’re no longer the hot one. You’re not the girlfriend. You’re not even the hot wife now. You’re the mom,” she said. “It really broke my spirit, and I was angry about it. »

Consider us intrigued and hooked.

When is The Idea of You going to be released?

No release date has been confirmed as of yet, but we know that production began this month, and when it’s out it will be available on Amazon Prime Video. Exciting!
