Florence Pugh upset over Olivia Wilde, Harry Styles affair

Within weeks, Olivia Wilde and boyfriend harry styles will walk the red carpet of the prestigious Venice Film Festival for the world premiere of her new film, “Don’t Worry Darling”, which she directed.

They will be joined by Styles co-star Florence Pugh, one of the brightest young people in Hollywood. But Hollywood is buzzing to learn that the 26-year-old actress had a falling out with Wilde, 38, over the director hooking up with Styles.

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

The former couple – who got engaged in 2012 and share children Otis, 8, and Daisy, 5 – announced the end of their seven-year romance in November 2020.

At the time, sources cited Wilde’s relationship with Harry as the main reason for the split, with an insider say on page six that the affair with Styles, now 28, had been going on for a month, leaving “Saturday Night Live” vet Sudeikis distraught.

“Jason and the kids visited Olivia on set early on a few times, so I think this whole thing made people a little uncomfortable,” the insider shared this week.

Internet sleuths certainly think something is up – finding it odd that, in an industry where stars live and die by Instagram, Pugh didn’t ‘like’ a post in which Wilde included the full official trailer of “Don’t Worry Darling” last week.

Wilde followed this by post a picture of Pugh with the comment“Watching this woman work was such a thrill! Can’t wait to show you more. @florencepugh@dontworrydarling.

Pugh, again, was conspicuous by her silence – and the fact that, on the same day, she posted a trailer for another new project, “Oppenheimer,” about J. Robert Oppenheimer, the so-called father of atomic bomb.

It’s a hotly debated topic on social media, with a fan who tweets“The way Florence Pugh hasn’t posted yet don’t worry honey even though there are two trailers and yet she will be posting about all the other projects she’s doing right now like what did Olivia Wilde ????”

“I think it’s so funny how Florence Pugh said NOTHING about don’t worry honey and Olivia Wilde keeps trying to turn her up,” tweeted another.

And noted a third Twitter user: “I need to know what Olivia Wilde did to my baby Florence Pugh on the set of DWD because my daughter has been SILENT on movie updates.”

But, a source told Page Six, “I heard she was already set to post [about ‘Oppenheimer’] that day, for some reason, it had nothing to do with answering Olivia.

“Don’t Worry Darling” is described as the story of an unhappy 1950s housewife, played by Pugh, who discovers a disturbing truth about her idyllic life, while her loving husband, played by Styles, hides a dark secret.

On the blue carpet in support of a Tiffany and Co. opening in London this week, Pugh was asked about his collaboration with Styles. She said he was “a total professional and it was a great experience working together”.

She then talked about the cinematography and styling – “It was a joy to step into the hair and makeup trailer every day,” Pugh said, noting, “the way everything looks delicious and golden” – but had nothing to say about its manager, Wilde.

It’s Wilde’s second film, following 2019’s hit “Booksmart,” for which she won an Independent Spirit Award. She hired former One Direction idol Styles on ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ to replace actor Shia LaBeouf, who was taken on trial by his former girlfriend FKA Twigs over allegations of sexual assault and sexual assault. “relentless” abuse. (LaBeouf has denied the allegations, and the case will go before a judge next April.) Wilde said she has a “No Assholes” policy on set.

Wilde further made headlines after being served with custody papers by Sudekis while promoting “Don’t Worry Darling” in Las Vegas at CinemaCon in April, for which he later apologized.

Pugh is currently shooting ‘Dune 2,’ playing Princess Irulan, and another Hollywood insider told Page Six, “Florence is shooting ‘Dune’ right now and out of pocket. I’m sure she’s will be at the forefront of the [‘Don’t Worry Darling’] promotion. Once the promo starts at the end of August, beginning of September, I’m sure it will be visible.

Reps for Styles, Wilde and Pugh were unavailable for comment.
