Pugh will be answering that question in the future, but one thing is certain: Wilde cannot stop praising her film’s lead man. During her CinemaCon presentation, the filmmaker raved that Styles—who she’s been dating for more than a year—is “nothing short of a revelation in this part.”

Wilde wrote a touching tribute to “As It Was”, and thanked Wilde for his participation in the film’s February 2021 production.

A little-known fact is that most male actors do not want to be in supporting roles for female-led movies. They have been taught by the industry to think that it reduces their ability (i.e. financial value) accept such roles. This is why it’s difficult to secure financing for female-focused movies,” she posted on Instagram. “Enter: @harrystyles, our ‘Jack.’ 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.”

She continued, “He did not have to join our circus but he jumped aboard with humility and grace and blew us all away every day by his talent, warmth and ability to drive forwards.”
