After rumors that have been swirling for a long time on the conflict between Florence Pugh and Olivia Wilde on the set of don’t worry darlinga messy anonymous source from the film’s production has come forward to confirm that the two did in fact engage in a “screaming match” during filming.

Talk to Vulture, the source says the altercation happened in January 2021, when filming was about to wrap. Fed up with Wilde’s tendency to disappear with his comrades DWD star Harry Stylesthe 26-year-old actor and the 38-year-old director broke into a very public “screaming match” on set.

From there, it was reported that top studio executives such as Toby Emmerich had to step in, mediating in a “long negotiation process” to keep Pugh willing to promote the film to a minimum. In the months leading up to the film’s release, she did just that, with a singular, Short appearance at the Venice Film Festival earlier this month. In addition to attending the film’s world premiere, Pugh stayed out of sight and away from recording devices.

Sometimes nothing works better for promotion than eye-catching headlines (like this one) featuring one of the most prominent actors in Hollywood and one of the biggest pop stars in the world. However, it looks like Warner Bros. would have preferred a drama-free deployment for the film, as an unnamed executive put it, the company is “ultimately unhappy” with Wilde’s promotion (especially the director’s handling of the Shia LaBeouf news).

“Olivia is either a mad genius who found a way to make people more aware of the movie in a way that only increases the box office,” says a source, “or she has no awareness of it. herself that she’s screwing up her movie.

With don’t worry darling making its nationwide theatrical debut today, the drama surrounding the film will soon enter the rearview mirror, that is, until Miss Flo decides to put it on paper in her memoir.
