Olivia Wilde’s “Don’t Worry Darling” finally opened in theaters this week after a seemingly endless press run that led many to question whether the myriad stories about Shia LaBeouf and the alleged dialogues would kill the film’s box office prospects. Dramas about Wilde and her relationships with co-stars Florence Pugh and Harry Styles have dominated coverage of the film in recent months, largely overshadowing the content of the film itself.

But so far, much of the drama that has surrounded the film has basically amounted to fan hooking on their own. Bowie conspicuously missed the press tour, but she has a fitting excuse in the form of her commitments to “Dune: Part Two,” which is currently filming in Budapest. Theories about the nature of Pugh’s feud with Wilde, and whether or not it was a result of Wilde’s relationship with Styles, remain just theories. The film’s cinematographer Matthew Lipatick even described the environment on set as “harmonious.”

But a new report from Vulture offers more details about the behind-the-scenes drama that plagued “Don’t Worry Baby,” claiming that Pugh and Wilde engaged in a “screaming match” in January 2021. Through Wilde’s frequent disappearances with Styles (with whom she began a relationship romance shortly after he was chosen), as well as the couple’s decision to attend a high-profile wedding despite repeatedly lecturing actors and crew about COVID protocols.

In addition to personal drama, there were also creative differences on the set. IndieWire has reached out to Warner Bros. to comment.

Story author Chris Lee said, revealed on twitter. She was like, ‘I’m making this movie more than you! “At one point it was shouted and people heard it. It spread everywhere very quickly.”

That strained relationship between the two actresses eventually forced high-profile studio brass to step in. According to the report, “The feud between Wilde and Pugh allegedly reached the top of the studio’s totem pole, with Warner Bros.’s highest-ranking executive at the time, Toby Emrich, forced to play the role of referee in the long negotiation process” to ensure Pugh’s participation in the Film’s Life Cycle.” (Pugh eventually appeared in Venice for the film’s world premiere, although she missed the press conference due to her travel schedule and did not attend the film’s New York premiere.)

“Don’t Worry Baby” is now playing in theaters.
