Olivia Wilde is celebrating the release of her first directorial film, Don’t Worry Darling, with a delightful cast photo. The film debuted in theatres this Friday, and Wilde celebrated the special day with a throwback snapshot of her costars on set. In the photo shared on Instagram, Wilde, who also stars in the movie, smiles and enjoys a coffee break alongside her boyfriend Harry Styles, Florence Pugh, and screenwriter Katie Silberman.
Alongside the photo, Olivia penned, “Don’t Worry Darling is officially open.” She continued, “I’m so deeply grateful for this experience and for the extraordinary effort of the group of artists who made it happen. We got together to tell a story for you, and we hope you have fun with it.”
Florence Pugh also took to her social media and reflects on working on the set of ‘Don’t Worry Darling.’ The actress also shared behind-the-scenes snaps including a photo of someone pushing a classic car in a deserted area, cinematographer Matthew Libatique riding on set in a trolley, costar Kate Berlant striking a pose as well as a fun photo of her sticking out her tongue while rocking hair rollers.
Pugh also added a snap of herself with director and costar Olivia Wilde dancing together in character. Her latest post comes following speculations that there was much tension on set, especially between the actress and her director. Meanwhile, Warner Bros. executives have recently denied any tension between the company and Olivia Wilde following a Vulture report that the director and actress Florence Pugh got in an alleged “screaming match” on the set of Don’t Worry Darling.
When asked to comment on the report, Warner Bros. co-chairs and CEOs Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy released a joint statement saying, “We are so proud of the work that Olivia Wilde has done making this incredibly beautiful and entertaining film and look forward to collaborating with her again.” De Luca and Abdy added, “The studio is very grateful and appreciative of the tireless support by Olivia in bringing her vision to life from production through release.”
