Hollywood It girl Florence Pugh and former boybander (but consistent heartthrob) Harry Styles may star as on-screen lovers in the upcoming film Don’t Worry Darling, but it’s director Olivia Wilde that has captured the heart of the singer off-screen – and that’s reportedly one factor causing some tension.

All eyes will be on Pugh, 26, Styles, 28, and Wilde, 38, at the film’s world premiere at the Venice Film Festival this week to see if the rumours are true, and a video leaked over the weekend only fanned the flames.

“I, too, am heartbroken, and I want to figure this out. You know, I think this might be a bit of a wake-up call for Miss Flo,” Wilde is seen saying in footage leaked by former Don’t Worry Darling star Shia LaBeouf (a whole other kettle of fish, but we’ll get there).

So what is, exactly, going on, and why have rumbles of a rift been rippling? Here’s everything you need to know about Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh’s alleged feud.

Watch the video above.

Are Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh feuding?

Well… things between the pair are not looking good.

For months, the infamous celebrity gossip account DeuxMoi has been sharing blind items from followers hinting at a feud, which have been speculated to be about Wilde, Pugh, Styles and the production of Don’t Worry Darling. No ‘reputable’ source, however, commented on the alleged feud until late last month, which only widened the floodgates.

“I can tell you for a fact that [Pugh] seeing Olivia and Harry all over each other on set did not go down well as Olivia was still with Jason [Sudeikis] when she first hooked up with Harry,” a source alleged to Page Six.

The publication highlights Wilde’s split from Ted Lasso star and former fiancé Jason Sudeikis as the supposed origin of the alleged feud, and the fact the timeline between Wilde’s split from the Saturday Night Live alum and father of her two children – eight-year-old Otis and five-year-old Daisy – and her relationship with the One Direction alum is a bit murky.

In November 2020, Sudeikis and Wilde announced the end of their nine-year relationship, with sources saying at the time that Wilde’s relationship with Styles was the main reason for the breakup, and that the couple had allegedly been having an affair for a month. Wilde, however, told Vogue in December 2021 affair murmurings were a “false narrative.” Styles and Wilde’s relationship started making headlines in January 2021.

The insider told Page Six earlier last month that at the beginning of Don’t Worry Darling‘s production – the movie started filming in October 2020, paused for two weeks due to COVID-19 in November, and ended in February 2021 – Sudeikis would visit the set with his and Wilde’s children, which made for an uncomfortable environment due to the alleged affair between Styles, who is the film’s leading man, and Wilde, who directed the film and also starred in it.

More (unverified) blind items submitted to DeuxMoi allege Wilde favoured the ‘Watermelon Sugar’ singer on the set of Don’t Worry Darling, and was so distracted by her soon-to-be-boyfriend that Pugh – who plays Alice Chambers in the film, Styles’ on-screen wife – had to step in and take over directing, but none of these have been officially confirmed or commented on.

Internet sleuths, however, really started thinking something was up in mid-July, when a new trailer for Don’t Worry Darling was released – and Pugh’s silence was deafening.

What has Olivia Wilde said about Florence Pugh?

Wilde has been very vocal with praise for Pugh, and on July 22, when a new trailer for Don’t Worry Darling dropped, she shared a post to Instagram of herself watching Pugh act on set, writing, “Watching this woman work was such a f—ing thrill! Cannot wait to show you more.”

That post was written after Wilde shared a still of Pugh from the movie earlier that day as well as the new trailer. Pugh hasn’t acknowledged any of them – not with a like, comment or re-share.

It is worthwhile to note, however, that Wilde’s Instagram posts often have comments limited or turned off.

Leaked video seemingly unravels ‘lie’ Olivia Wilde told about Shia LaBeouf

Wilde’s official social media and interviews are filled with nothing but praise for Pugh – but a leaked video she reportedly privately sent to actor Shia LaBeouf appears to show she may think something different behind-the-scenes.

For context, LaBeouf was originally cast in Styles’ role as Jack opposite Pugh, however, in 2020, it emerged he had dropped out of the production. A few months later, Wilde gave an interview where she somewhat implied he was fired due to her “strict no a–holes policy” on set.

Then, in an August 24 cover story with Variety, Wilde opened up for the first time about LaBeouf’s departure from Don’t Worry Darling, further implying he had been fired. Three days later, he hit back at those claims, leaking videos, emails and screenshots to Variety in an effort to prove he quit the film.

He sent a copy of an email to Variety he claimed to have sent to Wilde last week, where he wrote, “Firing me never took place, Olivia. And while I fully understand the attractiveness of pushing that story because of the current social landscape, the social currency that brings. It is not the truth. So I am humbly asking, as a person with an eye toward making things right, that you correct the narrative as best you can.”

But, you might ask, what has this got to do with Florence Pugh? Well, LaBeouf sent Variety a video he claims Wilde sent him two days after he allegedly quit the film, and, in the video, Wilde is driving a car and says she is “not ready to give up on this yet” and also alludes to tension between LaBeouf and Pugh.

“I feel like I’m not ready to give up on this yet, and I, too, am heartbroken and I want to figure this out,” she says in the video. “You know, I think this might be a bit of a wake-up call for Miss Flo, and I want to know if you’re open to giving this a shot with me, with us. If she really commits, if she really puts her mind and heart into it at this point and if you guys can make peace – and I respect your point of view, I respect hers – but if you guys can do it, what do you think? Is there hope? Will you let me know?”

Needless to say, fans are not happy with the “Miss Flo” business.

What has Florence Pugh said about Olivia Wilde?

Pugh has not commented on the recent situation with LaBeouf, but some of her silences speak louder than others.

When Pugh was cast in the movie, she was full of praise for Wilde, writing on Instagram in April 2020 alongside the casting announcement: “[Olivia Wilde] just tagged me in a picture *gasp no.1* [Olivia Wilde] casted me in a film *gasp no.2* [Olivia Wilde] is my idol and allowed me to be a part of this fecking incredible cast. Shia?!? Chris [Pine]?!? *gasp no.3* I can’t wait to join this project when all of this is over. Until then, masks up. Gloves on. Stay home. Read script 17,000 because.. you know.. it’s [Olivia Wilde]!! #DontWorryDarling.”

When Styles was announced as LaBeouf’s replacement in September 2020, Pugh also wrote on Instagram: “Hells yeah. So so excited to have you on board!!”

Since then? Crickets. In fact, when Pugh was asked about the movie at an event in June 2022, she praised the cinematographer, the stylists and Styles rather than Wilde. And Pugh’s fans have definitely noticed.

“It was a joy to walk into the hair and makeup trailer every day,” the actress said of the film’s styling team, and said of the cinematography a highlight was “the way that everything looks delicious and golden.”

Pugh also said the Fine Line artist was “a total professional and it was a great experience working together.”

Pugh is known for vigorously celebrating all the projects she’s involved in on her social media pages, and on the same day in July that Wilde made both her posts about Pugh and the new Don’t Worry Darling trailer was released, Pugh opted to share a teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s war drama Oppenheimer instead, in which she plays Jean Tatlock.

The Little Women actress and Oscar nominee’s initial excitement over the project and subsequent silence has been the topic of hot debate on social media, with one person writing on Twitter: “The way Florence Pugh has yet to post about don’t worry darling even though there are two trailers out for it and yet she’ll post about every single other project that she’s doing right now like what did Olivia Wilde do ????”

Another person tweeted: “i think it’s so funny how florence pugh had said NOTHING about don’t worry darling and olivia wilde keeps trying to hype her up.”

“I need to know what Olivia Wilde did to my baby Florence Pugh on the set of DWD because my girl has been SILENT on movie updates,” a third person wrote.

Page Six‘s source, however, said of Pugh’s silence: “I heard she was already scheduled to post [about ‘Oppenheimer’] that day for some specific reason, it had nothing to do with a response to Olivia.”

Fans have also speculated Pugh’s former relationship with Zach Braff, 47, has something to do with the alleged feud – Braff and Sudeikis are friends, and when Sudeikis’ show Ted Lasso was nominated for several Emmys last year (and at the ceremony it absolutely cleaned up), she publicly congratulated him and wished him luck, and did the same thing when he won the Best Actor Golden Globe for his role as Ted Lasso.

Florence Pugh reportedly limits Don’t Worry Darling press

Neither Wilde, Styles nor Pugh have publicly commented on the alleged feud – and fans were eagerly awaiting to see how the trio behave around each other on the press tour for Don’t Worry Darling, which began in late August with Wilde’s interviews and was set to officially kick off with Styles and Pugh at the Venice Film Festival, which runs from Wednesday August 31 to Saturday September 10.

The film’s premiere at the Venice Film Festival, however, might not actually be kicking off anything – it seems that, for Pugh at least, the festival appearance will be her one and only for Don’t Worry Darling.

As Wilde’s video leaked over the weekend, TheWrap also published a report alleging Pugh’s appearance at the Don’t Worry Darling red carpet and press conference will be the only traditional press she’s doing for the film, a move that is unusual considering she’s the lead actor.

It is important to highlight, however, that Pugh is currently filming Dune 2 in Budapest, and will be travelling to Venice directly from a night shoot, before reportedly swiftly returning to set. This is what has been cited as a factor in her limited press for Don’t Worry Darling.

A timeline of alleged behind-the-scenes Don’t Worry Darling events that have me very worried

  • August 2019: Don’t Worry Darling announced.
  • April 2020: Pugh announces she’s been cast as the lead. Wilde was originally meant to play Pugh’s role as Alice and vice versa, but they swapped roles when Wilde, who is also the director, decided she wanted a younger couple to centre the film.
  • August 16, 2020, as alleged by LaBeouf: Wilde and LaBeouf meet in person in Los Angeles to discuss his exit from the film.
  • August 17, 2020, as alleged by LaBeouf: LaBeouf “officially” quits Don’t Worry Darling.
  • August 19, 2020, as alleged by LaBeouf: Wilde sends LaBeouf a video where she asks if they can “figure this out” and alludes to tension between Pugh and LaBeouf.
  • September 2020: Styles is announced as LaBeouf’s replacement.
  • October 2020: Principle photography begins.
  • November 4, 2020: Filming halts for two weeks due to COVID-19 outbreak on set, with Pugh, Styles and Pine quarantined.
  • November 2020: Wilde and Sudeikis announce the end of their nine-year relationship.
  • January 2021: Wilde and Styles’ relationship seemingly becomes official.
  • February 4, 2021: Wilde tells Variety she has a “strict no a–holes policy” on set, implying LaBeouf was fired per this policy.
  • February 13, 2021: Filming for Don’t Worry Darling wraps.
  • December 2021: Wilde denies rumours she had an affair with Styles.
  • April 2022: Wilde’s presentation about Don’t Worry Darling at CinemaCon is interrupted when she’s “ambushed” with custody papers from Sudeikis.
  • July 22, 2022: New trailer for Don’t Worry Darling drops, absolute silence from Pugh though she promotes Oppenheimer, while Wilde in comparison shouts Pugh’s praises.
  • August 24, 2022: Wilde’s cover story with Variety comes out, where she opens up about LaBeouf’s alleged firing from the film for the first time.
  • August 26, 2022: TheWrap reports Pugh’s press appearances for Don’t Worry Darling will be nothing outside of the Venice Film Festival.
  • August 27, 2022: Variety publishes leaked emails and text messages sent in by LaBeouf, with the purpose of disputing the claim he was fired. This same day, the video allegedly sent by Wilde to LaBeouf emerges online, though it is not included in Variety‘s article.
  • August 31 to September 10, 2022: Venice Film Festival. Don’t Worry Darling is understood to premiere on September 5 at the festival.

Regardless of if the feud is true or not, the production has been messy – in addition to LaBeouf’s reported firing and production shutting down due to COVID-19, the film made headlines in April this year when Wilde was served custody papers by Sudeikis while she was making a speech promoting the film on stage, for which Sudeikis has since apologised.

Pugh is currently shooting Dune 2, and promotion for Don’t Worry Darling is currently underway. Styles, meanwhile, is currently touring North America with his show Love On Tour, and Wilde has been spotted at many of his concerts.

Actress Kate Walsh has revealed how she met her now fiancé, WA farmer Andrew Nixon.

The Grey’s Anatomy star confirmed that their ‘meet cute’ did in fact take place on a trip to Antarctica in early 2020, as rumoured, during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show .

“We met, as one does, on a Nat Geo expedition to Antarctica,” Walsh said, before joking to the studio audience “there’s an app for it guys”.

Clarkson in disbelief thought the actress was being sarcastic.

“No, I did. We were on a ship to the Antarctic and that’s how I met him,” Walsh clarified.

“What? This is like a movie,” Clarkson replied.

“Who knew,” Walsh added of the fateful trip.

The Emily in Paris actress told the singer-turned-talk show host that due to the climate crisis she wanted to see both the Arctic and Antarctica.

Having ticked off the North Pole, she went to explore the South Pole on a trip that changed her life.

“It was incredible. It was an incredible trip and then bonus, you know, found the love of my life,” Walsh said.

“Saw the penguins, check. Ice, check. Whales, check. Man, check,” she joked.

“It’s a pretty good trip I think,” Clarkson replied.

Following the Antarctica trip in February 2020, Walsh moved to Perth during the COVID-19 lockdowns the following month.

That move looks to become more permanent with the couple set to tie the knot.

The couple secretly got engaged last year, with the actress accidentally outing their marriage plans during an Instagram Live in October.

Talking about their new life in Perth, the Grey’s Anatomy star told Clarkson about how she’s already used to shark alarms at the beach and driving on the other side of the road.

Although she admitted when she gets tired or stressed “it’s like some old operating system clicks in” and she finds herself forgetting to drive on the correct side.

Walsh also told a story about being so afraid of hitting a kangaroo during a two hour drive to Nixon’s farm outside Perth, she spent the whole car trip honking as a warning system for the animals.

The actress and entrepreneur revealed her “new homeland” of Australia has also inspired one of the latest candles in her Boyfriend Perfume range, called Down Under.

While another is cheekily named Morning W’oud.

“It is all double entendre,” Walsh said of the range inspired by an ex-boyfriend.

Walsh and Nixon made their red carpet debut together at the Emily in Paris Season 3 premiere last December.

Nixon, who has been a farmer for more than 30 years, sometimes features on Walsh’s Instagram Stories, though Walsh largely keeps his presence in her life under wraps and doesn’t share photos of him to her permanent feed.

Walsh has been married once before, tying the knot with producer Alex Young back in September 2007.

The couple split the following year before finalising their divorce in February 2010.

Salma Hayek can always be counted on for a standout fashion moment. But she outdid even herself as she arrived for the South Beach premiere of Magic Mike’s Last Dance wearing a daring ensemble! The Eternals star, 56, arrived rocking a completely see through fishnet black dress, embellished with colorful floral appliques and paired with a skimpy pair of bikini bottoms and matching bra. The mom of one pulled her hair into a dramatic high ponytail and accessorized with a green handbag, layered necklaces, platform heels, and classic hoop earrings. Her makeup glam was perfection in neutral tones.

Salma opened up about the role back in December. “It’s very physically challenging,” she told ET of an already famous steamy lap dance scene. “My goodness. You just wait to see. It’s complicated.” She also hilariously dished on what it was like to show up to work on the set. “I play a strong woman,” she told the outlet of her character, Maxandra Mendoza. “You know what was my day going into the office? I would just sit around and watch, like, 12 men, semi-naked dancing and doing pirouettes. And I got to boss them around.”

As for her iconic sense of red-carpet style, she spoke about how it can “reinvent” in a 2015 interview. “I think the fun thing about fashion is that it’s a place where you can exercise your own creativity and you can make a reinvention of yourself every day,” she told Glamour’s UK edition at the time. And what’s the flip side of that?

“I think the bad part of fashion is when instead of being an exploration of your own identity, you try to copy everyone else then it’s not healthy,” she added. “It’s not satisfying.” She mixes things up, she said, with “color.”

“I love to add color,” she told the outlet. “I like to do a lot of basic colors like black or beige and then have an accessory that has color. Like a great scarf. I have this Alexander McQueen scarf from the Damien Hurst collection. When I wear it, even if my other clothes are really simple, it’s just something. Or even a colorful hat or a great pair of boots and a bag if it’s colorful.”

Paris Hilton and her husband Carter Reum are now parents.

Hilton, a prolific businessperson and hotel heiress, confirmed to People magazine that she and Reum, both 41, welcomed an heir of their own via surrogate.

“It’s always been my dream to be a mother and I’m so happy that Carter and I found each other,” Hilton told People. “We are so excited to start our family together and our hearts are exploding with love for our baby boy.”

“You are already loved beyond words,” Paris wrote alongside a blue heart emoji.

The mogul married Reum, an author, entrepreneur and venture capitalist, in November 2021 after dating for more than a year. The couple had a lavish, three-day wedding ceremony. Much of the ceremonies were featured on Hilton’s reality TV show Paris in Love.

Hilton previously told People that she and Reum began the in-vitro fertilization (IVF) process a few months into the COVID-19 pandemic. She said the timing was right because “I’m on a plane 250 days out of the year,” so they were able to get the eggs “stocked and ready.”

Reum reportedly has one other child, who is grade-school age, from a previous relationship.

Last year Hilton said she wants “two or three” kids of her own in the future.
