There is only one more sleep Don’t worry darling It becomes visible to those of us without one Venice Press PassAnd whether you are concerned about the weight of the film or not Drama behind the scenesOlivia Wilde wants to clear things up.
during an appearance on Wednesday The Late Show with Stephen ColbertColbert directly questioned Wilde about “reports of hostility, people analyzing body language, personal messages being published, stories and counter-stories.” ran widely through the film’s bonkers press junket. First on the clarification list: Shia LaBeouf Kicked out of the setOr he did leave at his own discretion?
Wilde’s response was (as usual) nothing short of diplomatic. “Early in the making of the film, as the director, I tried to mediate a situation between people, to see if they could work together happily,” explains Wilde. “When it became clear that this was not a committed working relationship, I was given an ultimatum. I chose my actress, and I’m very glad I did. At the time, was I embarrassed that we couldn’t make it work? Absolutely. That information gave me confidence that we made the right decision. And then came to light? Absolutely.”
Colbert, in what he described as a “tribunal of the people,” pushes Wilde to specify exactly what happened with LaBeouf and whether or not she fired him., she somewhat obliged. “We had to replace Shea. He’s a wonderful actor, but it just wouldn’t work,” she says. “You know he gave me an ultimatum about him or Florence. [Pugh]I chose Florence and felt like he was drifting away and we were moving on without him. […] It is a question of semantics.”
Despite taking part in the dramatic breakup, Colbert also expresses his sympathy The Don’t worry darling Media circus at the beginning of the interview. He tells Wilde at one point that “it must be especially resentful that people talk about so many things that are not pictures.”
“Oh are they?” Wilde jokes to the audience’s delight while taking a pointed sip from her The Late Show mug. All jokes aside, however, Wilde is clearly more than aware of Don’t Worry Darling’s behind-the-scenes intrigue—and in some ways, sees it as an allegory for the film.
“It’s kind of ironic because all of it is really what [Don’t Worry Darling]About,” she explains. “This film is about the stories we are given and whether we choose to accept them or question their provenance. As you said, personal messages were posted without context trying to make a situation look like it didn’t exist.
