Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably found it amusing to follow all the scandals surrounding Don’t Worry, Darling. Particularly at the Venice Film Festival 2022, there were rumors of friction between director-actor Olivia Wilde and Don’t Worry Darling main actress Florence Pugh during the film’s premiere. Thusly, it was impossible for viewers of the debut to miss the “distance” between the renowned women.
On the other hand, Chris Pine’s agent fiercely denied the untrue allegations after Harry Styles reportedly spit on the actor. Returning to Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh, there have been many reports of conflict on set, including Wilde’s romance with Styles dominating the movie, Florence and Harry allegedly receiving unequal pay, arguments over the significance of the passionate scenes in Don’t Worry, Darling, and the real reason Shia LaBeouf abruptly left the psychological thriller.
Except for the Venice Film Festival premiere (she missed the press conference), Florence Pugh has been missing from Don’t Worry Darling publicity, which says volumes for gossip mongers who are fascinated by every cast member’s body language. Although reviews of Don’t Worry, Darling have been divided at first, acclaim for Pugh and Style’s compelling performances has been gushing in. It is unclear whether the drama that took on behind the scenes will affect how well the film does when it debuts later this month.
This raises the question, movie buffs: Do you believe all the controversy surrounding Don’t Worry Darling will have an impact on the performance of Harry Styles’ film?
