‘Don’t Worry Darling’ crew disputes Olivia Wilde, Florence Pugh feud

Several “Don’t Worry Darling” crew members and studio execs have denied a bombshell report claiming Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh got into a “screaming match” on the set of the thriller film.

“We are so proud of the work that Olivia Wilde has done making this incredibly beautiful and entertaining film and look forward to collaborating with her again,” Warner Bros. executives Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy told Page Six in a statement.

“The studio is very grateful and appreciative of the tireless support by Olivia in bringing her vision to life from production through release. Any suggestion of conflict between the studio and Olivia is simply not true.”

Additionally, 40 members of the crew and production team released a statement after Vulture published a report about the alleged tension between Wilde and Pugh, who stars in the film opposite Harry Styles.

“As a crew, we’ve avoided addressing the absurd gossip surrounding the movie we’re so
proud of, but feel the need to correct the anonymous ‘sources’ quoted in a recent
article,” the group said in a statement to People, referencing the unnamed insider who spoke to Vulture.

“Any allegations about unprofessional behavior on the set of Don’t Worry Darling are completely false.”

The crew called Wilde “an incredible leader and director who was present with and involved in every aspect of production,” and “ran this set with class and respect for everyone involved.”

They also noted, “There was never a screaming match between our director and
anyone, let alone a member of our cast.

“We are happy to put our names on this, as real people who worked on the film, and who
have witnessed and benefitted from the collaborative and safe space Olivia creates as a
directors and leaders.”

Producer Miri Yoon also slammed the report, calling it “completely unfounded” in her own statement to People.

“Rumors of screaming matches between our director and leading lady on set are completely unfounded,” she said. “We truly hope you enjoy the movie.”

The crew coming together to speak out comes just days after Vulture claimed that Wilde, 38, and Styles, 28 – who met on set and are dating – “would just disappear” while working together alongside the rest of the cast.

Pugh, 26, was allegedly upset with Wilde’s “frequent, unexplained absences,” the outlet claimed, theorizing that it may have had something to do with her blossoming relationship with the One Direction alum.

Reps for Wilde and Pugh have not returned Page Six’s multiple requests for comment.

Page Six first reported that Pugh was unhappy about Wilde and Styles’ romance in July.

“I can tell you for a fact that Flo seeing Olivia and Harry all over each other on set did not go down well as Olivia was still with Jason when she first hooked up with Harry,” an insider told us at the time, referencing Wilde’s estranged ex Jason Sudeikis.

The “Midsommar” actor then pulled out of several opportunities to promote the film, including a now-infamous Venice Film Festival Press conference and the New York City premiere.

“Don’t Worry Darling” is in theaters now.
