Pretty awkward. Florence Pugh isn’t so fond of Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde’s relationship. The Don’t Worry Darling stars and director seem to have an “uncomfortable” relationship, according to an insider.
Florence and Harry star as the leads of Olivia’s upcoming movie, Don’t Worry Darling, which is set to premiere on September 23, 2022. An insider told Page Six on July 20, 2022, that Florence was unhappy after Olivia and Harry started dating on the set of the film around the same time as Olivia’s split from ex-fiancé Jason Sudeikis. “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,” the source said. “Jason and the kids visited Olivia on set at the beginning a few times, so I think this all made people feel a little uncomfortable.”
Olivia and Jason were together from 2011 until November 2020. The couple got engaged in 2013 and share two children together: Otis, 7, and Daisy, 5. Olivia started dating Harry in January 2021 after meeting on the set of Don’t Worry Darling where Olivia directed and Harry acted. An insider told HollywoodLife on February 21, 2022, that the couple are going slow and steady. “[Olivia] doesn’t want to move too fast and scare [Harry] off,” the insider said. “She’s been married before and had a near-decade relationship with Jason and has kids, so she is eager to see where this relationship goes with intentions of it being great but seeing how it all plays out.” During an appearance at CinemaCon promoting Don’t Worry Darling, Olivia was served custody papers from Sudeikis on April 27, 2022. Jason reportedly wasn’t aware that his ex-fiancée would be served custody papers in public.
However, fans online are suspicious of Florence’s lack of promotion around her own movie. Florence hasn’t posted about Don’t Worry Darling on her social media unlike the rest of the cast who have shared the trailer for the suspenseful movie. Florence also hasn’t linked Olivia’s Instagram post of the trailer for Don’t Worry Darling. “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 ????” one user tweeted. In July 2022, Olivia posted on Instagram a photo of Florence with the caption, “Watching this woman work was such a f–king thrill! Cannot wait to show you more. @florencepugh@dontworrydarling.” However, another source told Page Six that the lack of Florence’s posts are due to a schedule conflict with her upcoming 2023 movie, Oppenheimer. “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.”
