Beef behind the scenes. Olivia Wilde has not been getting along with Florence Pugh, the star of her movie ‘Do not Worry Darling,’ which premiered on September 23.
Florence and Olivia have had many disagreements personally and professionally, which is why Florence is not doing any press for the film, a source exclusively disclosed in the new issue of Us Weekly. The Wrap will limit the 26-year-old Little Women star’s press engagements for the film to the Venice Film Festival premiere and red-carpet event.
Wilde’s first directorial project since Book smart has been surrounded by its fair share of drama leading up to the anticipated telecast. In an interview with Variety earlier this month, the 38-year-old House alum squashed rumors that Pugh had been paid significantly less than Harry Styles, her co-star in the psychological thriller.
There has been a lot out there that largely do not pay attention to,” the New York native said. But I was upset by the absurdity of invented clickbait and the subsequent reaction regarding a non-existent pay disparity between our lead and supporting actors.
Although Wilde described the sex scenes of the film as ‘integral,’ Pugh raised eyebrows when she commented on the trailer highlighting her intimate moments with Styles, 28.
When it’s reduced to your sex scenes or watching the famous man in the world go down on someone, it is not why we do it, the Fighting with My Family actress told Harper’s Bazaar earlier this month.
Fans have also noticed that the Midsommar star has been largely quiet about the movie on social media apart from a short clip earlier this month with the caption, ‘Not long now! Only in theatres September 23.’
Talk of a clash between the director and the Black Widow actress only grew after Shia LaBeouf leaked a video that Wilde allegedly sent him in August 2020.
The filmmaker previously at Variety that LaBeouf lost his role in Don’t Worry Darling because his process was not conducive to the ethos he demanded in my productions. Still, the Transformers star slammed the comments, claiming it came down to a lack of rehearsal time.
In the video, shared with Variety, the Book smart director says, I feel like I’m not ready to give up on this yet too, am heartbroken, and he wants to figure this out, allegedly referring to LaBeouf’s departure from the film.
Wilde’s offscreen connection with the ‘As It Was’ singer contributes to the upcoming film’s buzz. She and Styles were initially spotted holding hands in January 2021, two months after she split from her fiancé Jason Sudeikis. This May, the duo was seen enjoying a stroll together in Italy.
