Olivia Wilde Don't Worry Darling: What Went Down At The Venice Film Festival

Olivia Wilde Don’t Worry Darling: What Went Down At The Venice Film Festival

The Olivia Wilde Don’t Worry Darling drama just went up a notch during the Venice Film Festival. Rumors surrounding the cast and film director have been circulating the gossip mill for weeks and are currently blowing up social media. It’s hard to tell how much of it is true and whether or not a lot of it is a deliberate publicity stunt to create hype for the film before its expected release date. 

Wilde’s being romantically linked to the film’s male lead Harry Styles didn’t help either. Some reports say that Florence Pugh felt uncomfortable during the production as her director Olivia and Styles started dating just when she was starting to build chemistry with Harry needed for their roles as husband and wife. Florence hasn’t directly confirmed nor denied the said issue. This left fans having to come up with their own conclusion, something that isn’t new with Hollywood gossip.

Olivia Wilde Don’t Worry Darling Scorching Hot Trailer

The hot movie trailer has created so much buzz that people are asking, did Olivia Wilde wrote Don’t Worry Darling? No. This American psycho-thriller film was directed by Olivia Wilde from the screenplay written by Katie Silberman. The movie was based on the story by Carey Van Dyke, Katie Van Dyke, and Silberman herself. The power cast includes Olivia Wilde, Harry Styles, Florence Pugh, Chris Pine, Gemma Chan, Sydney Chandler, Nick Kroll, and Douglas Smith.  

For those wondering what is Don’t Worry Darling storyline, it demonstrates what it is like to live in an experimental community. Florence Pugh’s character is a housewife who begins to suspect that her husband, Harry Styles company is behind some disturbing secrets. The film is set in the 1950s California desert where all the glitz and glamour slowly unravel and a dark story presents itself. 

Did Florence Pugh Go To Venice Film Festival?

Yes, but she was a no-show at the press conference itself. Probable clues of this absence are evident in her social media accounts. Fans simply can’t help but notice how underwhelming the attention she’s putting on the film on her Instagram page. Back in April 2020, she couldn’t contain her excitement about working with her idol, Olivia Wilde. Considering how much the actress gushes over her projects on her socials, her eerie quietness over her latest film is giving off some weird vibes. Fans think something fishy is going on.  

The Possible Rift Over The Horizon

There has been a debate going on on social media about whether or not a rift between Florence and the film’s director Olivia exists. This began when Wilde told Vogue during an interview that she wanted the film’s sex scenes to make the audience realize, “how rarely they see female hunger and specifically this type of female pleasure.”

Wilde’s statement is a total contradiction to Florence’s opinion about the matter. In her interview with Harper’s Bazaar in August, she criticized the sexualization of the movie’s marketing. She said, “When it’s reduced to your sex scenes or to watch the most famous man in the world go down on someone, it’s not why we do it, it’s not why I’m in this industry.”

Many fans believe this is one of the reasons why Pugh was a no-show at their press conference at the Venice Film Festival. Olivia herself said Florence was busy shooting the sequel to Dune. But fans found it weird since her Dune co-star Timothy Chalamet made it and slayed the Red Carpet. Florence made it to the red carpet with her co-stars but was never photographed next to Olivia. 

The Five-Minute Standing Ovation

The Olivia Wilde Don’t Worry Darling drama was briefly set aside when the two seemingly appeared to support each other during a five-minute standing ovation for the film. Olivia and Florence beamed as they looked and clapped for each other in adoration. 

As for Olivia, she says it’s pure gossip. The director addressed these rumors during the movie’s Q&A saying, “As for all the endless tabloid gossip and all the noise out there, I mean the internet feeds itself. I don’t feel the need to contribute. I think it’s sufficiently well-nourished.”

Why Fans Won’t Let Go Of The ‘Rift’ Theory

The cast and Olivia Wilde, in particular, tried their best to drive the attention back to the movie itself and away from all the gossip, but it simply won’t stop. Because apart from the Olivia-Florence rift, the Olivia-Shia LaBeouf drama hasn’t been properly sorted out yet. This is after the actor denied director Olivia Wilde’s claims that he was fired from the film when he said he quit.

He wanted Olivia to change her narrative because this could damage his reputation badly. Shia then took matters into his own hands and spilled the beans. He showed all the correspondence between him and Olivia- emails, text messaging, and the most damning of all, a video. A recorded video of Olivia pleading with him to come back and finish the film’s production.

As if this wasn’t enough, here comes another viral moment when fans believed they saw Harry Styles spit on his co-star Chris Pine. Pine’s representative denies this and says it’s a completely fabricated exchange. One thing is for sure, the Olivia Wilde Don’t Worry drama on and off cam is more than enough to make fans curious enough to see the film.
