The Venice Film Festival was filled with excitement for the premiere of Don’t Worry Darling by Olivia Wilde, which had its world premiere at the lido.
By 8:00 am on Monday, dozens of fans of Harry Styles were camping in front of the theater where the premiere was held at night and the emotion was high from the moment the pop star arrived whose international fame and following made it seem like mania for Timothee Chalamet that was seen on Friday as something curious.
Many eyes were on the film’s press conference, hoping that reports of behind-the-scenes tensions with the star Florence Pugh will be addressed and clarified. Before the premiere Wilde he said he didn’t want to contribute to “endless tabloid gossip” and “the noise.”
“The internet feeds itselfWilde said. “I don’t need to contribute, I think he’s very well fed”.
Pugh is halfway through production on Dunes 2which is expected to be a big release (also from Warner Bros) and is expected to return to filming just after fulfilling its commitments in Venice. Although she is the star of the film, she did not attend the press conference, as her flight had not yet landed.
“Florence is a force and we are very grateful that she can come tonightWilde said. “I know, as a director, how upsetting it is to lose an actor for a day.”.
Behind-the-scenes drama rarely extends beyond industry rumours, but the question of what exactly happened in making “Don’t Worry Darling” has become a global intrigue. The lack of clarity about everything, including the departure of Shia LaBeouf at the start of production and the perceived lack of support from Pugh for the project on their social media, have been simmering on TikTok and Twitter for a while and were intensified by a report in the Hollywood Gazette, Puck, that quoted various anonymous studio and production sources.
Wilde, for his part, was effusive about his lead actress. In an interview with Associated Press He spoke quite a bit about Pugh’s extraordinary talent, saying that what he did with the role was “singularly brilliant” and that the character of Alice is a “heroine for all time”.
Despite this, questions remain as to why Pugh hasn’t posted much about the film on his Instagram. He made no noise about the first advance, nor did he say anything about going to Venice.
It’s worth mentioning that Pugh’s co-star in Dunes 2Chalamet, made a brief visit to Venice to support his film Bones and All. It may be the only appearance he makes on behalf of that movie, but no one made headlines about it. Chalamet I “limit” his appearances in the press.
Wilde also became a subject of paparazzi publications for her real-life relationship with Styles. And then there was a time at the conference CinemaCon in which to Wilde was given custody papers for his children.sent by his ex Jason Sudeikisduring a stage presentation of his film when he was in front of thousands of industry professionals and theater owners.
In recent weeks, all the little strands have caught fire, largely because of LaBeouf, who came out of the shadows to deny the version that has been circulating for two years that he was fired from the project. In the end, the role of him went to Styles.
In a cover story of VarietyWilde said of LaBeouf’s departure: “His process was not conducive to the values that I demand in my productions. He has a process that somehow seems to require a combative energy, and personally I don’t think that’s conducive to the best performances.”.
In response, LaBeouf sent private emails, text and video messages to Variety to show that he quit due to lack of time to rehearse. A video message, in which Wilde tries to convince LaBeouf to play Jackwas leaked to the internet and in it he calls Pugh “Miss Flo”.
The moderator of the press conference prevented a reporter from asking a question about LaBeouf, arguing that Wilde had already answered this in his comment about “tabloid gossip” and noise.
LaBeouf, who will go to court next year over abuse allegations against his ex, FKA twigs, is also in Venice this year with the film “Padre Pio”.
The press conference with Wilde stuck to the themes of the film, a psychological thriller set in the mid-20th century about a seemingly perfect couple consisting of Alice (Pugh) and her husband Jack (Styles) who live in an experimental community in the desert.
“We were quite interested in the problematic nature of nostalgiaWilde said. “Everything in this film is a metaphor…everything that is beautiful is also sinister. That’s how it was thought”.
The film is one of the films in competition at the festival and will be released in theaters on September 23.
