Olivia Wilde and her boyfriend Harry Styles will soon walk the red carpet at the prestigious Venice Film Festival for the world premiere of their new film, “Don’t Worry Darling,” which she also directed.
They will be joined by Florence Pugh, one of Hollywood’s most promising young actors and Styles’ co-star. Hollywood, however, is abuzz with rumors that the 26-year-old actress and Wilde have a falling out over the director’s relationship with Styles.
“I can tell you for a fact that Flo seeing Olivia and Harry all over each other on set did not go down well as Olivia was still with Jason when she first hooked up with Harry,” according Page Six’s sources, in reference to Jason Sudeikis, Wilde’s ex-husband.
The former couple, who became engaged in 2012 and have two children together, Otis and Daisy, announced their separation in November 2020.
Sources at the time claimed that Wilde and Harry’s relationship was the primary cause of their separation, which had apparently been going on for a month and left Sudeikis upset.
Does Pugh disapprove of her co-star’s relationship?
Internet sleuths are convinced that something strange is going on because Pugh failed to “like” a post last week where Wilde included the complete official trailer for “Don’t Worry Darling” in an industry where stars live and die by Instagram.
Following that, Wilde commented on a picture of Pugh on social media, saying, ” Watching this woman work was such a f-king thrill! Cannot wait to show you more. @[email protected].”
Pugh once more stood out by remaining silent, as well as by posting the teaser trailer for another upcoming film, “Oppenheimer,” which is about J. Robert Oppenheimer, the so-called “father of the atomic bomb.”
Fan speculation has been going wild on twitter because of it.
In “Don’t Worry Darling,” Pugh, plays a 1950s housewife that finds out a disturbing truth about her idyllic life while her devoted husband, played by Styles, keeps a sinister secret.
After the critical and commercial success of 2019’s “Booksmart,” for which she received an Independent Spirit Award, this is Wilde’s second movie. She replaced actor Shia LaBeouf, who was embroiled in a lawsuit by his ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs over allegations of sexual assault and “relentless” abuse, with former One Direction heartthrob Styles on “Don’t Worry Darling.”
In April, Sudekis served custody papers to Wilde while he was promoting “Don’t Worry, Darling” at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Sudekis later apologized for the incident.
