Olivia Wilde responds to rumors that her and Florence Pugh, another actress, are having problems.

Olivia Wilde is avoiding all the rumors. Wilde was joined at the 2022 Venice Film Festival by the cast of her new film Don’t Worry Darling, which stars Harry Styles in the lead role and Chris Pine and Gemma Chan in supporting roles. The key female protagonist Florence Pugh was missing from the cast, which sparked online outrage and fed rumors of a simmering conflict between Wilde and Pugh.

When a reporter mentioned that it was a news conference, Wilde addressed the rumors as she was asked about them “”Can you just clear the air and discuss whether there has been a falling out there and if so why? It’s a shame” Pugh could not attend the conference. Considering that people are talking about it, “per ET. Pugh arrived in Venice a little after the cast since she was filming for the Dune sequel in Budapest, to which Wilde retorted, “Florence is a force, and we are so grateful that she’s able to make it tonight despite being in production on Dune.”

Wilde continued, “As a director, I am aware of how upsetting it is to lose an actor, even for a day, so I am incredibly appreciative to her and Denis Villeneuve for their assistance. And we’re overjoyed to be able to honor her work tonight. I can’t express how grateful I am to having her as our lead enough. She is fantastic in the movie.” The director of Booksmart addressed the rumors by adding, “I don’t see the need to add to the never-ending tabloid rumors and other noise, she continued, “I mean, the internet feeds itself. It has received enough nutrition.”

The panel’s moderator, Giulia D’Agnolo Vallan, reportedly stepped forward to dodge a question on the Shia LaBeouf scandal by saying, “I think this subject has been answered when she talked about the internet,” before moving on to a another one.
