Last week, Vulture reported that the actress and the director got into a heated argument during filming. A source claimed that Harry Styles and Wilde would "just disappear", and eventually Florence and Wilde got into a "screaming match". As a result, it was allegedly negotiated that Florence would do minimal promotion of the film.

Now, however, members of the Don't Worry Darling crew have denied the report.

In a statement issued to PEOPLE, they wrote: "As a crew, we’ve avoided addressing the absurd gossip surrounding the movie we’re so proud of, but feel the need to correct the anonymous ‘sources’ quoted in a recent article.

"Any allegations about unprofessional behavior on the set of Don’t Worry Darling are completely false."

They also came to the defence of Wilde by describing her as an "incredible leader and director who was present with and involved in every aspect of production", and that she ran the set with "class and respect for everyone involved".

The statement then vehemently denied claims of a verbal argument between Florence and Olivia.

"There was never a screaming match between our director and anyone, let alone a member of our cast."

Speculation that Wilde and Pugh were feuding has been surrounding the project, after fans noticed Pugh was barely promoting the feature.

Wilde has dismissed the rumours and praised her leading lady in an interview with Vanity Fair, saying: "Florence did the job I hired her to do, and she did it exquisitely. She blew me away. Every day I was in awe of her, and we worked very well together.

"It is ironic that now, with my second film – which is again about the incredible power of women, what we’re capable of when we unite, and how easy it is to strip a woman of power by using other women to judge and shame them – we’re talking about this."
