At the pre-Oscars party, the stars of the film "Don't Worry Darling" appear to snub each other.
The most prominent figures and finest talents from Hollywood gathered on Friday at Sunset Tower Hotel, Los Angeles, anticipating the Annual Academy Awards. The party was filled with famous celebrities, including Elton John, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore, Vin Diesel, Sandra Bullock, Dua Lipa, and Pedro Pascal. The “Don’t Worry Darling” stars Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh were also spotted there.
However, something’s off between the two. They were never captured on camera greeting each other or partying together during the course of the evening. For months, rumors of ill blood between the actresses have circulated.
A source exclusively confirmed to Page Six that they “definitely did not see them interact.” And that Pugh was “unhappy” with Wilde about her on-set affair with co-star Harry Styles because the director was still dating Jason Sudeikis at the time. But then, Wilde subsequently divorced both guys.
When it came time for the actors to promote “Don’t Worry Darling,” Pugh opted out of the film’s New York City premiere, sparking quarrel rumors. She was reportedly absent because she was filming “Dune: Part Two” in Europe.
Pugh also skipped a pre-scheduled press briefing and photo session for the film at the Venice Film Festival but arrived in time for the red carpet premiere.
Another source also revealed to the publication that the schism between Wilde and Pugh was due to Liv’s affair with Harry. “I can tell you for a fact that Flo seeing Olivia and Harry all over each other on set did not go down well, as Olivia was still with Jason when she first hooked up with Harry.”
Harry Styles allegedly kissed co-star Florence Pugh on the set of their film a week before he began dating the director, Olivia Wilde, according to a second claim that explains why the two are not on good terms.
The pash is believed to be the true cause of the two women’s disagreement during the filming of “Don’t Worry Darling.” According to an insider, Pugh and Wilde had a “screaming match” on set.
Pugh apparently became angry with Wilde’s behavior in the days preceding the alleged fight for her “frequent, unexplained absences,” which could have been related to her romance with Harry Styles. Pugh has not verified nor denied that she had any conflict with Wilde while they were working together.
