Olivia Wilde’s latest directorial project, Don’t Worry Darling is a star-studded psychosexual feminist thriller that collaborates the aesthetic beauty of a utopian society with the transcendence of the 50s. However, the brilliant cast and the director have had their fair share of time served under the watchful gaze of the gossip mill and the crowd is now speculating about the actuality of a fallout between the director and her lead protagonist.

Olivia Wilde Faces Heat For Asking Shia LaBeouf to Stay

In light of recent events, the director, Olivia Wilde, and actress, Florence Pugh have faced the scrutiny of the public who have ruled that the two are not on the best of terms, especially now that Shia LaBeouf‘s involvement in the matter is gradually unraveling. Wilde first reported firing LaBeouf in order to protect her lead actress from feeling unsafe on set. In a Variety interview published days before, the director claimed that she had a “no a**holes policy” on set leading to her making the call.

However, the Honey Boy actor has now replied to those claims saying the allegations of him being fired are false and that he quit Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling. The director also faces allegations of being a fake feminist after a recently leaked video surfaced within days of her Variety statement, where she is seen asking Shia LaBeouf and Florence Pugh to settle their differences in order to continue working on the film, adding that she is “not ready to give up on this yet” and that this might be a “wake up call for Miss Flo”.

The fallout between Florence Pugh and Olivia Wilde first began when the former showed significantly less involvement as compared to her co-stars in the promotion of the film. Sources close to Florence Pugh have also clarified that the actress will not be promoting the film outside of the Venice Film Festival which could also be on account of her current schedule of shooting Denis Villeneuve’s Dune: Part Two.

However, apart from the scheduling conflict, earlier reports claimed that the actress was unhappy with the director starting a relationship with the British pop star, Harry Styles on the set of the film. The crux of the fallout in its entirety still remains the subject of speculation and a substantial reason is yet to be revealed since both Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh have on several occasions either evaded or refused to comment on the matter.
