The new psychological thriller, “Don’t Worry Darling”, directed by Olivia Wilde presented many stir ups behind the scenes. From love triangles and actor feuds to spitting allegations, the underbelly of this film unravels all sorts of drama.

In the early stages of production, there was a need for an actor replacement for Shia LeBeouf, who was set to play Jack Chambers in the film. The public is still unsure whether he quit or was fired, but many speculate that LeBeouf was fired due to sexual battery allegations. He denies this, and says he left the project “due to lack of rehearsal time”. He was later replaced by Harry Styles to play the role of Jack Chambers, stirring up all kinds of drama.

Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde, the director of Don’t Worry Darling, have allegedly been in a relationship since early 2021. Some people believe that there is some sort of love triangle going on between Styles, Wilde, and Pugh, but nothing has been confirmed.

Florence Pugh, the lead actress in the film, has been suspiciously quiet about the production process, as well as the big debut of the movie. Catherine Herber, a fan of the film, shares that Pugh “left the Venice premiere early and hasn’t promoted the film at all. She seems like she wants nothing to do with the movie.”

The public revealed that during production, she was treated very unfairly behind the scenes. She and Wilde have been seen feuding, where Wilde comments, “Florence needs to get her act together”.

As if this drama was not enough, during the Venice Film Festival, there is a video that surfaced that looks as if Styles spits on his co-star Chris Pine. While Harry Styles’ team denied all of the allegations, the video still left Don’t Worry Darling fans in an uproar.

Despite all of these controversies, the movie was still able to make it to theaters and has already accumulated more than $30 million dollars worldwide. More drama is sure to erupt after more information is unearthed, and fans are ready for it.
