Florence Pugh will attend the Venice Film Festival to see “Don’t Worry Darling” in its premiere, but the star has limited her promotional activities at this festival.
Pugh will be attending Monday’s red carpet premiere “Don’t Worry Darling” after arriving in Venice via private jet. The actress will not attend the press conference, which is scheduled to take place the same day. After the press conference, Pugh’s flight lands in Italy. Festival representatives confirmed that Pugh’s plans for Venice had been approved by Variety.
Pugh is the leader of “Don’t Worry Darling”, alongside an ensemble which includes Harry Styles and Nick Kroll, Gemma Chan (Kiki Layne), and Olivia Wilde who also directs this thriller. Styles and Wilde arrived in Venice one day before the premiere, according to reports.
Pugh’s abruptly canceled festival plans are reported to be in the context of reports that Pugh will limit her publicity activities for the thriller. Pugh has been busy in recent months filming “Oppenheimer” by Christopher Nolan before moving on to “Dune: Part Two” which is currently being produced in Budapest. Pugh will soon return to filming the scifi sequel, despite a tight schedule.
Pugh has not yet made any official comments about her time on “Don’t worry darling”, but speculation has been rife that there were difficulties with the production. Shia LaBeouf shared a video of Olivia Wilde, who was initially attached to the film as the husband of Pugh’s role — a position that Styles would fill later — Wilde refers to tensions with Pugh. Following LaBeouf’s departure, the filmmaker stated that she is “not ready to quit on this yet.”
Wilde gave praise to Pugh’s performance on “Don’t worry darling” in a latest profile in Variety ,stating she was inspired by Ari Aster’s 2019 horror comedy “Midsommar”. Pugh declined to speak with Wilde for this story.
Wilde said, “I loved the movie, but I loved her.” Wilde said, “I was just like, “Well, she’s exceptional.” She is clearly the most interesting young actress currently working.
Representatives from Pugh could not be reached immediately for comment.
