However, Wilde took the platform to clarify and shared, ‘We were all so close to the production bubble.’

More on the alleged affair of Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh

The rumors started to surface when a TikTok user noticed in a video that Florence Pugh is not promoting, ‘Don’t worry Darling’ on her social media handle like her co-stars.

Additionally, Pugh did not post about the film even when the second trailer was released on July 21st. However, she has uploaded details of her next project with Christopher Nolan for the film, Oppenheimer.

In addition, in an article, it was said that Harry Styles was supposed to be paid three times the salary of the actress Lady Macbeth in the film.

Wilde stated during the interview, ‘There was a lot in there that I mostly didn’t pay attention to. But the absurdity of the invented clickbait and the subsequent backlash about a non-existent pay disparity between our main and supporting actors really bothers me.’

She then went on to say, ‘I’m a woman who’s been in this business for over 20 years, and it’s something I’ve fought for myself and for others, especially as a director. There is absolutely no validity to those claims.’
