‘Don’t Worry Darling’ star Florence Pugh took to Instagram to pen a heartfelt tribute to the film on its release date, as well as sharing a group of behind-the-scenes photos from set, including one with the director Olivia Wilde.
“It’s here…and ready to be seen,” Pugh wrote. “@dontworrydarling is in the cinema! We’ve met so many talented people, visited insane places, worked hard in the desert dust, and looked good doing it. (Thanks to @hebathormakeup and @jaimeleigh.hair and @ariannephillips).
“Thank you to everyone who bought tickets and to those who have already seen it – every time I watch awe-inspiring movie moments on giant screens, I’m always reminded that there’s a boom just inches away. the image I’m looking at. Or marks on the floor just below the actors’ waists. It’s crazy to think that every set up and scene takes so much of a day to execute, and on that one- there… there was a lot to do!
“Explosions, car chases, balancing cocktails, underwater footage, racing, drinking, more racing…
This movie was such an epic story on such a grand scale to shoot, all while during peak Covid times. For that, I will always be grateful. To all of you who helped make this happen, your dedication and love was seen daily – thank you.
“With that, here are some pictures I took from that time. More soon! # don’t worry honey.
Despite rumors that Pugh and Wilde feuded on the set of ‘Darling,’ the latter has denied any friction in her Variety cover story.
“We’ve all been so close to the production bubble,” Wilde said, as she praised Pugh and [co-star Harry] Styles as action partners. “She was really a huge supporter of him as someone who was newer to a film set. And he was such a huge supporter of her, like someone who understood it was his movie.
“Don’t Worry Darling” earned $3.1 million at the box office from Thursday night previews.
