Harry and Olivia caught in 4k! (lol not really)
Alright, cut the crap. Is this Holivia or not? It sure looks like them! And if it is, then oof. That body language is all lopsided and bent out of shape. Harry is the king of hating public PDA (cough except with Zayn cough) but this takes it to a whole different extreme. He didn’t even give her a little pat on the hand like: “There there, love, daddy’s gotcha.”
Hands in his pockets, looking for a quick diversion with his phone, physically moving away, almost like he’s subconsciously looking for an escape or something to relieve the awkwardness he was feeling. It’s not necessarily that he doesn’t want her to touch him, it’s more that he is uncomfortable with this level of touching in public. And we know that from the past.
Meanwhile, here’s Harry with David (who is a relative stranger.)
I mean, I would be PISSED if I was being this touchy and affectionate with my man in public and he left me hanging like Harry did. That’s awful. He couldn’t even bring himself to “pretend” to reciprocate her energy. Damn Harold, it’s like that?? (And this is technically candid footage. Meaning it’s theoretically them when they feel no one is watching.)
Here’s another link to the video in case it gets deleted from YouTube. (I’m sorry I can’t post it myself.)
Of course this is only a 30 second clip and it’s difficult to determine anything from 30 seconds, but because we have observed Harry over a long period of time and roughly understand his baseline as far as body language is concerned, some things are discernable in this clip if you are the sort of person who can read this stuff. I sure can (on a general level.)
In fact, his energy with Olivia puts me in mind of the way he was with Kendall on the yacht in late 2015. She’s all over him and laying on his chest, but he’s checking his phone.
Harry: *has a super model in a bikini laying on top of him* “Oh gee, guys, I wonder what the weather’s like?” *checks phone*
Kendall: “But Harry…H-harry? You’re already outside.”
The Holivia clip has such strong ‘this dude isn’t really into females’ vibes that it seems too easy to detect. Like?? That can’t be right? There must be a catch, right? Even I’m more into females than that, and I strictly love dudes!!
Honestly, I still believe there must be something we’re missing here lmao. Harry must be a DOG in the bedroom and behaves very very into females behind closed doors, right? Hmmm…except, that’s not how body language works. Body language reveals (more like BETRAYS) a subconscious story about you that cannot be contrived, manipulated, or concealed.
Look at how Zayn is with Gigi normally. Rather aloof, uncomfortable, hostage-y, and wooden. Of course that was until too many people noticed and commented on how distant he is with her (after those countless pap walks) and then he suddenly tried to amp up the PDA on her birthday (which resulted in that awkward, try-hard performance at the food truck.)
Now old Harold here…well, this dude never even tries to look remotely interested in his girlfriends. NONE of them. The most Harry has ever “appeared” intrigued by Olivia was in this pic:
And he only appears interested in her here because he was simply “looking” at her. Harry is known for maintaining strong eye contact with everyone (even interviewers.) He makes sure to display deep interest and lends his undivided attention to anyone speaking to him. It’s often mistaken for “flirting” (even with some interviewers) and this is the entire core of the Larry Stylinson conspiracy theories (where Harry is concerned.) Larries squeal over the way Harry “looks” at Louis on occasion (while Louis was LITERALLY constantly talking, moving, and doing something attention-seeking to upstage everyone) lmfao.
Meanwhile, look at the way he is with Zayn. Someone who is quiet and never seeks attention. In this clip Harry is turned in the opposite direction from the speaker onstage (Louis) and marveling at Zayn like it was the first time he has ever seen him:
Tbh, this all makes the handhold at Jeff’s wedding make a bit more sense. We knew it was out-of-character for Harry to put on such a show unless he was encouraged to do so for PR purposes or by a demanding lover.
It was most likely an Olivia-driven public handhold (based on how relentlessly clingy she is in the video above) and Harry just doesn’t get down like that. It’s the exact same way he was with Camille, super standoffish and closed off body language. However, the difference between Hendall, Hamille, and Holivia is that Camille seemed to respect Harry’s boundaries in public.
I’m not saying Holivia is fake (because she clearly thinks it’s real on some level, like Gigi) but this video does deepen my consternation about them in general. It also furthers my impression that they feel a bit “gimmicky” (something I’ve said since Day One) but maybe it just feels gimmicky on Harry’s end?
I’m sure he likes her and probably even adores her…(*cough just not enough to look remotely interested in her cough* But that’s the price you pay when you want to date Mr. Harry Styles. His heart was stolen long ago.)
