Olivia Wilde Responds to the 'Don't Worry Darling' Tabloid Drama Between Her and Florence Pugh ...

Don't Worry Darling received a press conference on Monday night, ahead of its premiere at the 2022 Venice Film Festival. While Wilde denied the fact, the director thanked her for attending the screening of the film, saying, "We are so glad that she did."

Wilde praised Pugh, claiming she's "a force" and that she "cant say enough how honored I am to have her as our lead." She specifically criticized all internet rumors and "endless tabloid gossip" about the two's relationships and issues, saying that "the internet feeds itself." I feel the need to contribute when the two were together during the filming of Don't Worry Darling back in 2020.

Don't Worry Darling received a 4-minute standing ovation from the audience in attendance. The star and director were apparently separated during the screening of the film, with Pugh apparently facing away from the director during the standing ovation.

Don't Worry Darling is directed by Wilde and based on a script written by Katie Silberman. Pugh and Styles are joined by an ensemble cast that includes Chris Pine, Gemma Chan, KiKi Layne, and Nick Kroll. Miri Yoon and Roy Lee are the producers of the film.

Don't Worry Darling received its world premiere at the 79th Venice International Film Festival, which is currently taking place in the titular city, and is set to arrive in the United States later this month on September 23. You can see the teaser for the upcoming thriller as well as its official synopsis here.

"Alice (Pugh) and Jack (Styles) are lucky to be living in Victory, an experimental company town that houses the top-secret Victory Project and their families. Every individual's needs are met by the organization. All they ask in return is an unquestionable commitment to the Victory project. But when cracks in their idyllic life begin to show up, revealing flashes of something much deeper beneath the attractive facade, Alice cant help but wonder what they're doing in paradise."
