Florence Pugh shared a sweet message about the cast of don’t worry darling amid rumors of tension between her and director Olivia Wilde.
The film, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival earlier this week, has been plagued by speculation about feuds and on-set rows over sackings.
Pugh, who was absent from the film’s press conference but attended its premiere later that night (Tuesday, September 6), has now praised her co-stars in an Instagram post shared on Wednesday (September 7).
“I’m still recording everything! Qwoaar. What was that moment?” she wrote midsummer Star.
“Congratulations to everyone who is standing on this carpet. We premiered in Venice! A huge, wonderful win in itself. I had never been to the Venice Film Festival before. It was great! The crowds! The cheers! The energy was incredible.”
She continued, “And also to all the cast and crew who helped make this film, thank you for all your hard work. We really wouldn’t have been there without your talent and we really appreciate it.”
Pugh, 26, sent a special shout out to her co-star Chris Pine, who was pictured on the red carpet with enthusiastic snaps of Pugh.
“Also, I just can’t help but post how freaking cute and hilarious Chris Pine is for being the #1 photographer and laying down on ironed white pants knees for angles…that’s dedication.” I love you Chrissy,” she added.
Pugh’s news comes after Wilde was asked by a reporter at the press conference to address rumors of a “breakup” between her and her leading man.
Later that night, Pugh arrived in Venice to attend the film’s premiere.
Appearing on the red carpet on Monday night (September 5), Pugh appeared to hint at the discord when asked by a journalist what she found “inspiring” about the film.
“I find it very, very inspiring to see a woman who pulls back and says ‘no’ and questions everything,” she replied. “It’s very exciting to see a woman do that in front of and behind the camera.”
Perhaps due to the ongoing drama, a viral video had convinced fans that Harry Styles – who was starring don’t worry darling across from Pugh – appeared to “spit” on Pine as he took his assigned seat next to the actor.
Pine officials called the rumors a “complete fabrication,” while sources close to the “As It Was” singer said The Independent that the alleged incident was “not true”.
In his first direct comments on the rumor, Styles joked about the incident during his return to Madison Square Garden Wednesday night (September 7).
