Florence Pugh seems to be sweeping all the drama under the rug. For those who do not know the drama between Don’t Worry Darling actor and director was widely reported by the media. The said movie hit the theatres in the states this week. Not only was there tension between the Oscar-nominated actress and Olivia Wilde, but according to Vulture the duo also had a “screaming match” on the sets of the film.
Amongst all the drama, following the release of the widely anticipated movies, Florence Pugh wrote a lovely letter on Instagram to the cast and crew of Don’t Worry Darling, the actress mentioned Olivia Wilde as well, even though not directly. Pugh posted a thread of posts of Behind the Scenes snaps from the set of the film, including the actress cutely sticking her tongue out for the camera, whereas another picture was of herself and Wilde in character, dancing.
Florence Pugh’s mentioned letter read, "It’s here.. and ready to be seen. @dontworrydarling is in cinemas! We met so many talented people, visited some insane locations, worked hard in the desert dust and looked good whilst doing so. (Thanks to @hebathormakeup and @jaimeleigh.hair and @ariannephillips) Thank you to all those who have bought tickets and those who have already seen it - whenever I watch massive impressive movie moments on massive screens I always remind myself that there is a boom just inches from the frame I'm watching. Or marks on the floor just below the actors waists. It's crazy to think that each set up and scene takes a large portion of a day to execute, and on this one.. there was a lot to execute! Explosions, car chases, cocktail balancing, underwater sequences, running, drinking, more running.. This film was such an epic story on such a large scale to shoot, all while during peak Covid times. For that I will always be grateful. To all of you who helped make this, your dedication and love was seen daily - thank you. With that, here are some pics I took from this time. More to come! #dontworrydarling"
In a subsequent Instagram post, Florence Pugh included even more fantastic behind-the-scenes photos from the production of Don't Worry Darling, with the description, "We saw suns rising as moons set… @dontworrydarling #dontworrydarling"
While Florence Pugh, boyfriend Harry Styles, and Don't Worry Darling writer-collaborator Katie Silberman are all disguised and relaxing outside vanity vehicles with scripts and coffee in hand, Olivia Wilde also released a BTS photo from the Don't Worry Darling set in which she is seen grinning gleefully. The caption by Wilde says, "Don't Worry Darling is officially open. Aaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!! I'm so deeply grateful for this experience, and for the extraordinary effort of the group of artists who made it happen. We got together to tell a story for you, and we hope you have fun with it."
Meanwhile, Don't Worry Darling will be releasing in India on September 30. The psychological thriller film also stars Chris Pine, Gemma Chan, Nick Kroll and Kiki Layne.
