Don’t Worry Darling is one of the most talked about topics in the Industry this year. From Florence Pugh’s feud with Olivia Wilde to the controversial exit of Shia LaBeouf, the movie’s filled with many hot events. On top of it, the mediocre reviews received by the film catapulted its bad press to a whole different level. But now the latest Instagram post by Florence Pugh somewhat surprised the fans. Her recent comments in her Instagram post regarding the movie are contrary to how her attitude was regarding the movie before its release.
Don’t Worry Darling also stars Harry Styles, Chris Pine, Gemma Chan, and the director Olivia Wilde herself in pivotal roles. Despite the bad reviews, it is reported that the box office collection of the movie’s been quite good.
Florence Pugh’s new Instagram post
Various incidents occurred before the release of the movie including Florence Pugh’s absence from the premieres of the movie raised several rumors of a serious feud among her and Olivia Wilde. In a video leaked by Shia LaBeouf, Wilde was also seen addressing Pugh as “Miss Flo”. Amidst all this ongoing controversy, the Black Widow actress’ Instagram post caught the attention of the fans as it seems that she has probably let go of all the fiasco that took place.
In the Instagram post, Florence Pugh wrote a big heartfelt post appreciating the whole cast and crew of the movie. Along with it, she also attached numerous photos including one with the director Olivia Wilde.
“This film was such an epic story on such a large scale to shoot, all while during peak Covid times. For that I will always be grateful. To all of you who helped make this, your dedication and love was seen daily – thank you.”
Florence Pugh also thanked to the audiences who watched this movie after its recent release. This post by her has led the fans to believe that she might have forgotten the whole fiasco and let it go. This also comes as a surprise for the fans as a few days ago only it was known from some anonymous sources that Pugh and Wilde had a screaming battle on the sets of the movie.
Reportedly, Pugh was being uncomfortable with the closeness between Wilde and Harry Styles. Despite all this, Olivia Wilde still praised Florence Pugh and denied any friction during various interviews.
