Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh had ‘screaming match’ on set: report

Honey, maybe you should worry now.

Florence Pugh and Olivia Wilde reportedly got into a “screaming match” on the controversial set of “Don’t Worry Darling”.

An unnamed insider who reportedly spent “considerable time” on the set of the psychological thriller told Vulture that a “burst argument” occurred in January 2021 between Wilde, 38, and Pugh, 26, about three-quarters of the way to production. .

Leading up to the alleged fight, Pugh reportedly became frustrated with Wilde’s “frequent, inexplicable absences” — which may have had to do with Wilde’s then-new relationship with Harry Styles, who also stars in the film.

“Olivia and Harry would just disappear,” the insider claimed on the site.

Tension eventually came to a head when the “screaming match” between Wilde and Pugh allegedly took place, according to the report.

Representatives for Wilde and Pugh did not immediately respond to Page Six’s requests for comment.

However, this isn’t the first time accusations of drama on the “Don’t Worry Darling” set have come out.

Page Six broke the news in July that Pugh was unhappy about Wilde and Styles’ relationship.

“I can definitely tell you that Flo seeing Olivia and Harry walking over each other on set didn’t go well as Olivia was still with Jason when she first hooked up with Harry,” a source told us at the time, referring to Wilde’s ex, “Ted Lasso” star Jason Sudeikis.

The feud was sparked when Wilde claimed she fired Shia LaBeouf as the male lead and replaced him with Styles, 28, to make sure Pugh felt “safe” and “supported”, the scandal-plagued “Transformers” actor, 36 , released a series of emails via Variety in August claiming he was the one who ran away.

LaBeouf also sent a video he received from Wilde, in which she begged him to stay on the film and appeared to disdain Pugh, saying, “I think this is a bit of a wake-up call for Miss Flo.”

Shortly after, Pugh skipped a press conference to promote the film at the Venice Film Festival.

Wilde claimed at the conference that the “Midsommar” star was absent because she was in “Dune: Part Two”, but noted that Pugh was confirmed to join the cast on the red carpet later that night.

However, Pugh also skipped the September 19 premiere of “Don’t Worry Darling” in New York City.

“As far as I understand there is friction, but I don’t know why,” a source told Rolling Stone earlier this month. “It’s pretty obvious [Florence is] choose not to be part of the PR. It’s clearly not beneficial for Olivia not to let her be part of the PR. It has to be a decision of Florence.”

However, a cameraman who worked on ‘Don’t Worry Darling’, which hit theaters on Friday, recently tried to debunk any feud claims.

“When I hear there are rumors of bitterness on set, I turn it down. It wasn’t clear at all, to be honest,” Matthew Libatique insisted on Hollywood Reporter’s “Behind the Screen” podcast.

“From my point of view, the stories are completely false when it comes to being on set. I can’t talk to post-production at all.”
