Florence Pugh is limiting her promotional activities at the Venice Film Festival to promote her film Don’t Worry Darling. Despite attending the festival to watch the film premiere, Florence pugh won’t be attending any press conferences.
As soon as Pugh arrives in Venice on a private jet, she will attend Don’t Worry Darling’s red-carpet premiere. Pugh’s flight arrives in Italy after the press conference for the film so she won’t be attending the press conference earlier that same day.
Festival representatives confirmed Pugh’s Venice plans to Variety. Olivia Wilde reportedly arrived in Venice one day before the “Don’t Worry Darling” premiere with Harry Styles, Chris Pine, Gemma Chan, Kiki Layne, Nick Kroll, and Olivia Pugh.
Pugh’s truncated festival plans come amid reports that the actress will limit her promotional activities for the thriller. A busy actress, she worked on Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer” in the past few months before heading to Budapest for the ongoing production of “Dune: Part Two.”
Due to a tight schedule, Pugh will begin filming the sci-fi sequel almost immediately after the Venice premiere. Recent weeks have seen speculation about difficulties surrounding Pugh’s time working on Don’t Worry Darling, even though she has not commented publicly. Shia LaBeouf shared a video of Olivia Wilde, originally attached to play the husband of Pugh’s character – later played by Styles – in a video alluding to tensions between the two actors.
As a result of LaBeouf’s departure, the filmmaker is not yet ready to give up; she still wants to work on the project. As Wilde noted in a recent Variety profile, Pugh has done a great job on “Don’t Worry Darling,” and said she contacted her after watching her in Ari Aster’s horror-comedy Midsommar in 2019.
Wilde declined to interview Pugh for the story. As Wilde shared, I loved the film, but I loved her more. I thought, “Well, she is an extraordinary actress.” She’s one of today’s most exciting young actresses.
