Olivia Wilde Dodge Questions Regarding Florence Pugh Or Shia LaBeouf

Something is going on with Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh that has ruined their work as artists in the newest project of Wilde’s directorial work. Their film Don’t Worry Darling is in the process of being screened during the Venice Film Festival to much applause, and lots of press behind the scenes. Wilde is known for her intimate relationship with pop star Harry Styles, who stars alongside Pugh in the psychological thriller. Her second time as director, following the very well-received Booksmart Wilde is likely hoping her new film was going to make the news at the show for a variety of reasons. But, it seems that drama has been brewing lately regarding Pugh as well as Shia LaBeouf, which has taken center stage.

According to an article in The Hollywood Reporter Olivia Wilde has decided not to discuss casting decisions she made during pre-production for Don’t Worry Darling, including switching Shia LaBeouf for Harry Styles for the role of the male lead on screen. She has decided to ban any person who brings the name of LaBeouf up, particularly with regard to the leaked footage that has surfaced recently that sheds details about the drama that took place when filming was taking place for the production. BuzzFeed News reports that Florence Pugh will not be at a press event for the film, despite the fact that she was present at the premiere of the film in Venice. She’ll focus on her other projects, rather than promote the film that’s been controversial. The movie’s demise by Pugh, as well as Wilde’s rift with the actor, appears to be leading to discussions in the media regarding the women’s capacity to co-exist.

A lot of the tension that has been brewing between Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh is rooted in confusion over Shia LaBeouf’s departure from filming Don’t Worry, Darling. According to People, Wilde believes that a lot of the controversy is gossip in tabloids and the fact that LaBeouf was dismissed from the film. But, LaBeouf has stated the opposite in interviews with podcasts in recent months. He has confirmed that he has walked away from the film completely, and also a video has been leaked, showing Wilde asking LaBeouf to be allowed to continue in the film as she tries to downplay the possible disagreement he may have been having in the past with Florence Pugh. Then, Harry Styles was hired to take over the role of LaBeouf and the final film is scheduled to premiere on September 23rd in front of more people.

While Olivia Wilde is dismissing the scandal as “gossip” and plans to direct the media focus on Do Not Worry Darling toward the movie itself, the drama continues to unfold in Venice. Florence Pugh will not be conducting any press interviews on the film before it opens in cinemas and will likely concentrate on the filming of Dune Part Two, which is currently in production. The actor completed Christopher Nolan’s epic Oppenheimer, starring an ensemble cast that includes Cillian Murphy. Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, and Robert Downey Jr. Wilde are fighting with her ex-boyfriend Jason Sudeikis regarding their custody rights to the couple’s two kids, as well as constantly being questioned about her publicly revealing relationship with Harry Styles. To his credit, Shia LaBeouf has signed onto Francis Ford Coppola’s latest production, Megalopolis, alongside Aubrey Plaza, which is expected to begin filming shortly.
