Olivia Wilde has revealed that she had to remove s*xy scenes from the Dont Worry Darling trailer at the last minute, revealing that she and her coworkers continue to live in a really puritanical society.
Wilde told the Associated Press that there was a lot that needed to be removed from the trailer. I had to remove some footage. The MPA hurt me at the last second and I was irritated at the thought they were upping the ante.
She believes that the lack of seduction in American films is something different. Also, in terms of female pleasure, we dont see much of it very often unless you're talking about queer cinema. You know, it's interesting because, in a lot of queer films, female characters can have more pleasure.
Wilde stated that she wanted the film to be provocative. Viewers aren't as puritanical as corporations believe they are, according to her. Yet people get angry. I mean, people are already enraged with me about it. I think that's what we want to achieve in this film.
The film, which is expected to be released on September 23, has already faced controversy and continues to make headlines.
As the DWD drama unfolds, Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles visit Venice.
Olivia Wilde explained more about the trailer Dont Worry Darling below.
Shia LaBeouf, who played the lead in the film, departed the film and was replaced by Harry Styles. Earlier, Wilde appeared to have said that LaBeouf was indeed fired. LaBeouf replied via email to Variety that he was actually done with the film.
LaBeouf wrote to Wilde in emails accompanying the release: Both you and I understand the reasons for my departure. I left your film because your actors and I could not devote time to rehearsals.
The casting drama did not stop there. During and after filming, there were claims that lead actress Florence Pugh was unsatisfied with Wildes' newlywed romantic relationship with Styles.
Pugh has never commented on the allegations. Wilde wants people to see their film. Every filmmaker wants people to see their film, she told The Associated Press. That's all you want people to see. If people are interested for some reason, you hope that gets them in the door.
All I care about is that you get to see it, whether you're a 1950s automobile enthusiast or you're just a fan of our amazing cast, said Wilde. I hope people will then have the urge to share it again. I think its a great second-watch movie.
