It actually allowed me to get to know her in a different way. My priority is them as long as they are happy and healthy.”

The actress went on to say that despite their differences, she and the 47-year-old are together Teddy Lasso The actor appears to be doing his best to be co-parents and put the needs of their son and daughter first, saying it’s “tough but doable.” And the public scrutiny the family faces — especially now that she’s started dating former One Direction singer Harry Styles, who she met on the set of don’t worry darling – doesn’t make it easier!

“It is difficult. It’s hard sometimes. But at the end of the day I’m so lucky and there are people who are dealing with really so many tough things… real health crises,” she added. “That gets me through. I remember it every day. I’m not on the internet, I’m not on Instagram. So, I think that really helps.”

Olivia concluded: “Focus on what’s real, your trusted circle of friends, things that make you happy, people you love, people you love. Just keep your mind on what’s real. And also watch how people – my colleagues – get through it. It could be a lot worse and we live and everything will be fine.”
