‘Don’t Worry Darling’ crew dispute Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh feud

Several “Don’t Worry Darling” crew members and studio execs have denied a bomb threat alleging that Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh had a “screaming match” on the set of the thriller film.

“We are so proud of the work Olivia Wilde has done in making this incredibly beautiful and entertaining film and look forward to working with her again,” said Warner Bros. executives Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy told Vidak For Congress in a statement.

“The studio is deeply grateful for Olivia’s tireless support in bringing her vision to life from production to release. Any suggestion of a conflict between the studio and Olivia is simply untrue.”

In addition, 40 members of the crew and production team released a statement after Vulture published a report on alleged tension between Wilde and Pugh, who stars opposite Harry Styles in the film.

“As a crew, we avoided addressing the absurd gossip surrounding the film that we…
proud of, but feel the need to correct the anonymous ‘sources’ mentioned in a recent
article,” the group said in a statement to People, citing the unnamed insider who spoke to Vulture.

“All allegations of unprofessional conduct on the set of Don’t Worry Darling are completely false.”

The crew called Wilde “an incredible leader and director who was present and involved in every aspect of the production,” and “ran this set with class and respect for everyone involved.”

They also noted, “There was never a screaming contest between our director and”
anyone, let alone a member of our cast.

“We are happy to put our name on this, as real people who worked on the film, and who
witnessed and benefited from the collaborative and safe space Olivia creates as a
director and leader.”

Producer Miri Yoon also slammed the report, calling it “completely baseless” in her own statement to People.

“Rumors about screaming matches between our director and lead actress on set are completely unfounded,” she said. “We really hope you enjoy the movie.”

The crew gathering to speak out comes just days after Vulture claimed Wilde, 38, and Styles, 28 — who met on set and are dating — “would just disappear” as they teamed up with the rest of the crew. the cast.

“I can tell you with certainty that Flo seeing Olivia and Harry walking over each other on set didn’t go down well as Olivia was still with Jason when she first hooked up with Harry,” an insider told us at the time, referring to Wilde’s estranged ex Jason Sudeikis.

The ‘Midsommar’ actor subsequently withdrew from several opportunities to promote the film, including a now infamous press conference at the Venice Film Festival and its New York City premiere.
