All of the chaos that has allegedly happened on the Don't Worry Darling press tour

The drama.

Don't Worry Darling, an upcoming film from Olivia Wilde, has attracted a significant amount of press coverage and intrigue, and it hasn't even been released yet.


From reports of a supposed feud between Wilde and lead actress Florence Pugh, alleged pay discrepancies (which have not been substantiated) and apparent inconsistencies in reports of Shia LaBeouf's departure from the film, there's been no shortage of drama.

To absolutely no one's surprise then, when the film made its debut at the Venice Film Festival, the intrigue continued. We expected chaos, and that's exactly what we got.

Olivia Wilde said Florence Pugh couldn't make the conference due to a filming conflict


During the press conference, a reporter asked Olivia to comment on rumours of a feud between the two women. Firstly, Olivia addressed Florence's absence, and said that she couldn't make it due to filming commitments. She praised her leading actress, but refused to comment on the rumours.

"She’s amazing in the film, and as for all the endless tabloid gossip and all the noise out there, I mean, the internet feeds itself. I don’t feel the need to contribute; I think it’s sufficiently well nourished," Olivia said.

And then Florence Pugh rocked up to the festival's, Aperol spritz in hand, looking extremely unbothered.


Harry Styles said his favourite thing about the movie is that it's a movie

The singer plays the male lead, opposite Florence, and during the press tour, he shared his thoughts on the film itself. In an interview, he said: "My favourite thing about the movie is that it feels like a movie. It feels like a real like, you know, go to the theatre film, movie, that you know, you kind of, the reason why you go to watch something on the big screen..."


He also apparently spat on Chris Pine???

As Harry moved into his seat next to Chris Pine during the actual screening, it looked like he may have spat into the actor's applauding hands. In a now viral clip, Pine can be seen staring at his hands with dismay as Harry settles into his seat.

The film got a standing ovation and it was eventful

The film appeared to be pretty well received by its Venetian audience, and it earned a standing O, that lasted five minutes. And it was a long five minutes. Much to the delight of his fans on Twitter, Styles planted a huge kiss on his co-star Nick Kroll, and as the applause continued Florence decided to call it an night and ducked out. Fair.
