Don’t Worry Darling crew calls out Olivia Wilde, claims Florence Pugh feud

The drama all around don’t worry baby will stay with us much longer than the film itself, especially now that the film crew has broken their silence over the rumors of a feud between Florence Pugh and Olivia Wilde.

Just a few days ago, reports of an alleged “screaming match” between director Olivia Wilde and star Florence Pugh made headlines.

An unnamed inside source who claimed to have spent “considerable time” on set told Vulture that there was a “blowout argument” between Wilde and Pugh in January 2021 — about three-quarters of the way to production.

Tensions had reportedly increased as Pugh became frustrated with Wilde’s “frequent, unexplained absences” — the director was rumored to have secretly run off with friend Harry Styles, who also stars in the film.

But now 40 crew members from the set have labeled the anonymous claims as “absurd gossip” in a direct response to Vulture’s report given as a statement to Deadline.

“As a crew, we have avoided addressing the absurd gossip surrounding the film that we are so proud of, but we feel the need to correct the anonymous ‘sources’ cited in a recent article,” the statement said. .

“All allegations of unprofessional conduct on the set of don’t worry baby are completely false,” it continued.

“Olivia is an incredible leader and director who was present and involved in every aspect of the production. She walked this set with class and respect for everyone involved. There was never a screaming match between our director and anyone, let alone a member of our cast.

“We are happy to put our name here, as real people who have worked on the film and who have witnessed and benefited from the collaborative and safe space that Olivia creates as a director and leader. We are also thrilled that the film is in theaters this weekend. We can’t wait to see it on the big screen.”

The statement was signed by producers including co-writer Katie Silberman, several crew members and director of photography Matthew Libatique.
