‘Don’t Worry Darling’ team rejects Olivia Wilde-Florence Pugh feud claims; ‘absurd gossip’ | #gossip | #entertainment


Don’t Worry Darling team is finally addressing the feud rumours between Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh as the movie hit theatres in the US. About 40 crew members signed their names to a statement denying that the two stars got into a ‘screaming match’ on sets and also called the alleged instances ‘absurd gossip’. 

The clarification comes after Vulture reported that Wilde and Pugh got into altercations while filming back in January 2021. Pugh was allegedly fumed due to Olivia’s frequent disappearances with boyfriend and film’s lead star Harry Styles. Another report claimed that the feud happened as Olivia attended a wedding with Harry, after allegedly lecturing the movie’s cast and crew to not break COVID norms.

In a statement to ET, producer Miri Yoon mentioned, “As a crew, we’ve avoided addressing the absurd gossip surrounding the movie we’re so proud of, but feel the need to correct the anonymous ‘sources’ quoted in a recent article. Any allegations about unprofessional behaviour on the set of Don’t Worry Darling are completely false.”

The statement also lauded Wilde’s exceptional leadership throughout the filming of Don’t Worry Darling. Olivia is an incredible leader and director who was present with and involved in every aspect of production. She ran this set with class and respect for everyone involved. There was never a screaming match between our director and anyone, let alone a member of our cast.”
