Glamorous and star-studded, the Venice Film Festival of 2022 had its share of glittering celebrities, yet not without whispers of controversies lurking in the shadows. With the excitement for Don't Worry Darling reaching a fever pitch, a sudden gust blew in, causing whispers to morph into buzzing questions. The film's director and actress, Olivia Wilde, found herself under the intense spotlight not for her cinematic brilliance but for long-whispered rumors and alleged feuds.
A curious absence: Florence Pugh’s missing presence
"Can you just clear the air and address if there's been a falling out there and if so why? Because it's something that people are discussing." As one reporter fervently quizzed Wilde about the apparent absence of Florence Pugh from the press conference, the whispers grew louder. Pugh was engrossed in filming Dune: Part Two, yet her absence from the conference fanned the embers of speculation. Wilde’s reply cast light, "Florence is a force, and we are so grateful that she's able to make it tonight despite being in production on Dune."
In the eye of the storm: Shia LaBeouf’s exit from the project
The shifting winds then steered the attention towards Shia LaBeouf's notable exit from Don't Worry Darling. LaBeouf, offering a diverging perspective, openly challenged Wilde’s account of his departure. "Firing me never took place, Olivia," he articulated, asserting the falsehood of the narrative. His revelation rocked the boat, unveiling a side untold, causing a stir in the tranquil waters of the film festival.
In a fleeting video leaked online, Wilde’s voice echoed, "Is there hope? Is there hope? Will you let me know?" A somber plea, a hopeful query, reflecting the turmoil behind the scenes. Wilde’s initial compliments about LaBeouf’s work tinged with her concerns about his combative energy shined a light on the rocky terrain the film navigated during its production.
Despite the swarming controversies, Wilde maintained a dignified poise. Amidst the overwhelming noise, her focus unwavering, dedicated to celebrating her work and the stellar cast, including Harry Styles, who ultimately stepped into the role vacated by LaBeouf.
In retrospect, as Don't Worry Darling graced the theaters on September 23, 2022, the tempest subsided, leaving behind tales of unspoken tensions, veiled stories, and untold narratives. While Wilde and the cast bask in the current glow of the film’s release, the echoes from the past Venice Film Festival serve as a stark reminder of the tumultuous journey etched in the annals of cinematic history.
