Olivia Wilde, Florence Pugh had ‘screaming match’ on set: report

Honey, maybe you should worry now.

Florence Pugh and Olivia Wilde reportedly engaged in a “screaming match” on the beleaguered set of “Don’t Worry Darling.”

An anonymous insider who allegedly spent “a lot of time” on the set of the psychological thriller told Vulture that an “explosive argument” took place between Wilde, 38, and Pugh, 26, in January 2021, around the three quarters of the way into production.

Prior to the alleged fight, Pugh was reportedly frustrated with Wilde’s “frequent and unexplained absences” – which may have something to do with Wilde’s new relationship with Harry Styles, who also stars in the film.

“Olivia and Harry would just disappear,” the insider told the site.

The tension finally came to a head when the “screaming match” between Wilde and Pugh allegedly took place, according to the report.

Representatives for Wilde and Pugh did not immediately return Page Six’s requests for comment.

However, this isn’t the first time allegations of “Don’t Worry Darling” set drama have come out.

Page Six reported in July that Pugh was unhappy with Wilde and Styles’ relationship.

“I can tell you for sure that Flo seeing Olivia and Harry on top of each other on set didn’t go over well because Olivia was still with Jason when she first met Harry,” Us said. a source said at the time, referring to Wilde’s ex, “Ted Lasso” star Jason Sudeikis.

The feud was fueled when Wilde claimed she fired Shia LaBeouf as the film’s male lead and replaced him with Styles, 28, to make sure Pugh felt ‘safe’ and ‘supported’. the scandal-ridden “Transformers” actor, 36, posted a series of emails via Variety in August claiming he was the one who walked away.

LaBeouf also sent a video he received from Wilde, in which she begged him to stay on film and seemed to offend Pugh, saying, “I think that might be a bit of a red flag for Miss Flo.”

Shortly after, Pugh skipped a press conference to promote the film during the Venice Film Festival.

Wilde claimed at the conference that the ‘Midsommar’ star was absent because she was in ‘production’ on ‘Dune: Part Two,’ but noted that Pugh had been confirmed to join the cast on the red carpet more late at night.

However, Pugh also skipped the premiere of “Don’t Worry Darling” in New York on September 19.

“From what I understand there is friction, but I don’t know why,” a source told Rolling Stone earlier this month. “It’s pretty clear [Florence is] choose not to be part of the PR. It’s clearly not beneficial for Olivia not to involve her in public relations. It must be Florence’s decision.

However, a cinematographer who worked on “Don’t Worry Darling,” which hit theaters Friday, recently tried to debunk any claims of a feud.

“When I hear there are rumors of acrimony on set, I dismiss them. It wasn’t obvious at all, to be honest,” insisted Matthew Libatique on the “Behind the Screen” podcast. from the Hollywood Reporter.

“From my point of view, the stories are completely wrong when it comes to being on set. I can’t talk about post-production at all.
