Olivia, 38, also starred in and directed the film, but the kiss is said to have happened before she and Harry were officially dating.
Still, the kiss sparked rumors of a feud between her and Florence that lingered long after the film’s cameras stopped rolling.
It has also been cited as a possible reason for Olivia and Harry’s split after a two-year romance.
Sources close to Harry say Olivia was aware of the kiss and his close friendship with Florence and that it had always been a “problem” in the relationship – and another factor in her decision to finally call it quits.
A source told The Mail on Sunday: “While news of the kiss has only just surfaced, Olivia has known about it and it has been addressed but none of it has been easy. The three worked together and of course afterwards Florence was there to watch Harry and Olivia get together.

The kiss is said to have long been a “difficult subject” between the two – although Olivia and Harry blame his hectic touring schedule as the reason for their split.
The couple reportedly agonized over the decision to split for weeks. Just last Thursday, Olivia was in the audience with her two young children to see Harry perform with his band in Los Angeles.
Publicly, the couple highlight that Harry’s tour would have made it almost impossible for them to spend time together until it concludes in Italy next July.
Olivia is reportedly unable to accompany him because she has to stay in Los Angeles with her eight-year-old son Otis and six-year-old daughter Daisy from her nine-year relationship with US film star Jason Sudeikis.
It was also said that she and Harry had trouble agreeing on which side of the Atlantic they would make home. But there was evidence other factors played a role, including Styles’ close friendship with his co-star Pugh, which culminated in that kiss.

It came after they met on the set of the film Don’t Worry Darling in March 2020.
“Three of them worked together day to day, the director and the two leads. The two stars kiss, then one meets the boss. It’s the stuff of nightmares. These things can put a lot of pressure on relationships.
Things got easier once filming wrapped, but it was discovered that the Oxford-born Florence was withdrawing from a series of scheduled interviews, skipping both the press conference and photocall to screen the film at the Venice Film Festival in September promote.
There was also a conspicuous lack of mentions for the film on their social media accounts. However, Olivia publicly denied any rift with Florence, saying she had “nothing but respect” for her talent and called her “fantastic”.
But whatever the truth, there was no public declaration of love on the red carpet in Venice. Florence hugged her co-stars and posed for selfies with fans and for photographers – but showed no outward affection for Olivia and Harry.
In an awkward group shot, as the cast arrived at the Sala Grande for the premiere, Florence chose to stay away from the happy couple.
After that, she skipped dinner and instead flew to Budapest, where she shot her latest film, Dune.
The news of Harry and Olivia’s split came as a surprise to the couple’s friends, who, despite the ten-year age difference between the pair, expected them to remain together for the foreseeable future.
When the relationship began in 2020 while filming Don’t Worry Darling, Olivia was still living with Sudeikis. She later insisted her relationship with the American star was over long before she started dating Harry.

In keeping with how publicly their romance has been played out, the pair used US showbiz magazine People to break news of their split — a tactic used by many A-listers keen to “close the narrative.” check”.
Just days before Harry flies to South America for the next leg of his tour, a source told the publication that he and Olivia are “taking a break” because they “have different priorities that keep them separate.”
The insider added: “He’s still touring and is going abroad now. She is focused on her kids and her work in LA. It’s a very amicable decision.
“They are still very close friends. At the moment they have different priorities that separate them from each other. Public pressure on her was difficult. They had ups and downs throughout the relationship.’
Another source insisted there was “no bad blood” between Wilde and Styles, telling American gossip website Page Six: “Harry didn’t dump Olivia or vice versa. This is the longest relationship Harry has ever had, so they clearly have a special bond.
“You’re taking a break. It’s impossible to be in a relationship when he’s on every continent next year and Olivia has her job and her kids. This is right for both of them.”
