Now, when the first trailer for Don’t Worry Darling was released back in May, many fans were shocked by how steamy the movie appeared to be.

The thriller follows Pugh as Alice, a housewife in the ’50s, and her husband Jack, played by Harry Styles. Things begin to unravel for Alice as she discovers what dark secrets Jack is hiding.

One thing many people have picked up on is how prominent the s*x scenes are in the trailer, despite the premise of the movie appearing to be totally different. Director Olivia Wilde has also shared how important she felt those scenes were.

However, Pugh clearly disagrees with Wilde’s motives, speaking out about her thoughts on the raunchy scenes with Styles in an interview with Harpers Bazaar. Despite not being overly impressed with how the character has been portrayed, she admitted this was understandable due to who she was working with.

“When it’s reduced to your s*x scenes, or to watch the most famous man in the world go down on someone, it’s not why we do it. It’s not why I’m in this industry,” Pugh told the outlet.

“Obviously, the nature of hiring the most famous pop star in the world, you’re going to have conversations like that,” she continued. “That’s just not what I’m going to be discussing because [this movie is] bigger and better than that. And the people who made it are bigger and better than that.”

Her recent comments have caused speculation to rise online that there is tension between Wilde and Pugh, with fans highlighting how Pugh has barely posted anything to do with the movie on her socials.

She finally made her first post last week, sharing a trailer — minus the s*x scenes — along with the blunt caption: “‘Not everyone gets this opportunity…’ Not long now! Only in theatres September 23rd #dontworrydarling.”

Now Pugh isn’t one to wait until the last minute to promote a movie, especially when she plays the lead.

Comments were also made by fans after Wilde praised Pugh on Instagram, writing: “Watching this woman work was such a f**king thrill! Cannot wait to show you more. @florencepugh.” A post that Pugh totally ignored.

And Pugh failed to return the favor to Wilde when filming ended back in February 2021, instead, she praised all the COVID-19 nurses and health workers who worked on set ensuring they could carry on filming through the pandemic.

Considering everything, it didn’t take long for social media users to come up with theories as to why Pugh refused to acknowledge Wilde after working on the movie. Many were left wondering if it had something to do with the overpromotion of the s*x scenes.

One Twitter user wrote: “Florence: sucks that ppl are reducing this film to my s*x scenes with harry, Olivia: female pleasure !!!, cl*t test !!!! good s*x,” referring to Wilde constantly leaning into the s*x hype.

“Florence speaking out on dont worry darling and dragging Olivia Wilde in the process bc she is marketing it around s*x when that’s not what the movie is actually about is just chef’s kiss!” a second said. “Thank you for your service Flo, a real trooper.”

Another added: “Olivia Wilde needs to stop promoting dwd like it’s a p*rno. Clearly, Florence isn’t okay with it, and Wilde needs to stfu and stop making it all about the s*x scenes.”

Someone else tweeted: “Florence rly said put [some] respect on our names Olivia and I’m so here for it.”

Others pointed out that as well as failing to mention Wilde in any of her interviews and promotion of the film, she also reposted multiple Instagram posts on her stories congratulating her on her HB cover, all the while ignoring Wildes’.

One fan said: “Florence once again had the opportunity to cease the rumors about her and Olivia by reposting her story like she did for harris and gemma but chose to ignore her. love that for her.”

But it’s not just the movie’s s*x scenes people are claiming have caused a rift between the 2, it’s also how Wilde acted while directing the movie that many are alleging rubbed Pugh up the wrong way.

Some have suggested it could be down to Wilde and Styles’ behavior while on set together, claiming they were “all over each other” making Pugh “uncomfortable.”

While others think it could be the fact that Pugh was paid just $700,000 as the leading lady, while Styles made a whopping $2.5 million although he only played a supporting role, as previously reported by Showbiz Galore.
