Olivia Wilde and her boyfriend Harry Styles will take the stage at the prestigious Venice Film Festival for the world premiere of their new film, Dont Worry Darling, which she directed in just a few weeks.
Florence Pugh, who plays Styles, is one of Hollywood's brightest young talents. However, Hollywood is abuzz with reports that Wilde, 38, has fallen out with Styles.
Flo seeing Olivia and Harry all over one other on set did not go down well, according to an insider, as Olivia was still with Harry when she first connected with Harry. This article focuses on Wildes ex, Ted Lasso star Jason Sudeikis.
The former couple who got engaged in 2012 and have two children, Otis, 8, and Daisy, 5, announced the end of their seven-year romance in November 2020.
Sources said Wildes' relationship with Harry was the main reason for the breakup, with one insider telling Page Six that the affair with Styles, now 28, had been ongoing for a month, leaving Saturday Night Live vet Sudeikis enraged.
Jason and the kids visited Olivia on set a few times at the beginning, so I think this all made people feel a little uncomfortable, the insider said this week.
Sleuths on the internet certainly think something is up. Pugh snuck up on a post in which Wilde included the whole official trailer for Dont Worry Darling last week, which was hailed by industry experts.
Florence Pugh was slammed once more for posting a teaser trailer for another new project, Oppenheimer, about J. Robert Oppenheimer, the so-called father of the nuclear bomb, on social media. One fan tweeted: 'Don't worry darling,' even though there are two trailers for it, and yet shell post about every single other project that she's doing right now. Like what Olivia Wilde did????
florence pugh had said NOTHING about i'm sorry, darling, and olivia wilde keeps trying to enthuse her up, tweeting another.
A third Twitter user has commented on what Olivia Wilde did to my baby Florence Pugh on the set of DWD, because my girl has been incredibly quiet about film updates.
Dont Worry Darling is a story about a solitary 1950s housewife, played by Styles, who discovers a disturbing fact about her idyllic life.
Pugh was asked about working with Styles on the blue carpet in support of a Tiffany and Co. opening in London this week. She said she was a total professional and it was a great collaboration.
Pugh mentioned the cinematography and styling She then talked about the film. Every day, she said, she was a joy to walk into the hair and makeup trailer, noting, the way that everything looks delicious and golden, but she had nothing to say about Wilde, her director.
Wilde is the second film to win an Independent Spirit Award for her 2019 Bookmart. Styles on Dont Worry Darling has been hired to take the role of actress Shia LaBeouf, who was implicated in a lawsuit by his former girlfriend FKA Twigs, which will be heard next April by a judge.
Wilde has been in the headlines since getting custody papers from Sudekis while promoting Dont Worry Darling at CinemaCon in April, for which he later apologized.
Florence is filming Dune 2, playing Princess Irulan, according to a Hollywood insider. Im sure she will be front and center for the [Dont Worry Darling] promo in late August or early September.
The reps for Styles, Wilde, and Pugh were unavailable for comments.
