Cast of Don’t Worry Darling 

Along with Harry Styles and Florence Pugh, the movie stars Chris PineGemma Chan, Olivia Wilde, KiKi Layne, Nick Kroll, Sydney Chandler, Kate Berlant, Asif Ali, Douglas Smith, Timothy Simons, and Ari’el Stachel.

At CinemaCon, Olivia Wilde praised the magic of the cast, and what they were able to create.

“It’s ambitious, but I think we made something pretty special,” Wilde explained. “The movie asks ‘you to imagine a life where you have everything you could dream of. What would it take for you to give up that perfect life? What are you really willing to sacrifice to do what’s right?'”

Olivia Wilde addresses drama surrounding film

At first, Don’t Worry Darling’s press team was smooth sailing. Fans and critics were excited for Olivia Wilde to direct this female-forward film, as she had directed the coming-of-age Booksmart.

Of course, there was some buzzing news from the beginning. Shia LeBeouf, who was originally planned to star opposite Florence Pugh was replaced with Harry Styles. After her split with fiancé Jason Sudeikis, Wilde began dating Styles.

Then, in August of 2022, Shia LeBeouf spoke with Variety, claiming that he had quit vs. being fired. During this back and forth, Florence Pugh had been silent about the film on social media and noticeably absent from press conferences and the New York City premiere.

With all this “he said she said,” Olivia Wilde stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

“The whole experience has sort of changed my way of thinking about the internet,” she told Stephen Colbert. “But, really, it’s kind of ironic, because all of this is really what the film’s about. The film is about the narratives we are fed and whether we choose to accept them or question their sources.”

While we don’t know for sure who is right or wrong, it’s important to take a step back from the drama and enjoy the film for what it is.
