Don’t Worry Darling, after all the drama and controversies that unfolded amongst its cast, finally hit the screens just last Friday. But it sure looks like there’s still more where that came from.
Kiki Layne, one of the cast members, addressed a rather prominent remark about her role in the movie, just two days after its release. And this seems to have stirred more attention towards the film crew which had already been in the limelight due to various altercations.
Kiki Layne expresses both gratitude and disapproval towards Don’t Worry Darling
On Sunday, the American actress, Kiandra “Kiki” Layne took to her Instagram to share how she really felt about working with her fellow castmates in Don’t Worry Darling.
With a surprising combination of acknowledgment and dissent, the actress stated how she, along with one of her co-stars Ari’el Stachel, had gotten way less screen time after being cut from “most of the movie.”
At the same time though, she also took the moment to appreciate the movie for granting her the opportunity to meet and work with Ari’el Stachel. Certain members of the cast seem to have supported Layne by commenting in the favour of her Instagram post.
“They cut us from most of the movie but, we thriving in real life”, Layne mentioned in the caption of her post with Stachel, whilst also claiming how meeting him was perhaps the best outcome of working in the movie.
She ended the caption with a sweet “love you Ari” message with tons of hearts and a few hashtags that threw some shade on the situation – #GotMyCheck #GotMyMan #EverythingHappensForaReason
Don’t Worry Darling‘s crew has yet again brought an inside dispute to light
Just a while ago, there had been rumors running like a wild river about a vicious rift between the director Olivia Wilde and one of the lead members of the movie, Florence Pugh.
Not only that, but then a video surfaced on the internet wherein fans claimed that Harry Styles, the renowned singer who plays the role of Jack Chambers in the film, spat on one of his co-stars, Chris Pine. And let’s not forget Wilde having to deal with custody papers in the middle of the presentation of her movie’s trailer at CinemaCon.
Following all these controversial attacks on the cast of Don’t Worry Darling, we have yet another impending discourse just waiting to explode, now that Kiki Layne has herself addressed being discriminated against.
Ari’el Stachel, one of the crew members who had to bear the same fate as that of Layne’s, also voiced a similar opinion on social media by reposting one of his TikTok videos on Instagram. The post took a jab at the director saying, “when you end up on the cutting room floor.”
Playing the roles of Margaret and Ted, Layne and Stachel appear to be a married couple in the film, but only in fleeting glances throughout the first half.
However, regardless of all these scandals, Don’t Worry Darling is now in the theatres.
