Olivia Wilde Confronts ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ Rumors: “People Will Look For Drama Anywhere”

On the eve of don’t worry darling‘s theatrical release, filmmaker Olivia Wilde is working to end the rumors about her film once and for all. She came over The Late Show on Wednesday where Stephen Colbert she quizzed about reported tensions with Treasure star Florence Pugh, Shia LaBeouf‘s controversial exit and – of course – spit gate.

“The whole experience kind of changed the way I think about the internet,” Wilde told Colbert of the discourse. “But actually it’s kind of ironic, because that’s really what the film is all about. The film is about the narratives we are fed and whether we accept them or question their sources.”

The director and co-writer, who also stars in the film, was first asked to clarify whether LaBeouf was fired or quit. “Early on in the film making process, as a director, I was trying to mediate a situation between people to see if they could happily work together,” said Wilde. “When it became clear that the cooperation was not sustainable, I was given an ultimatum. I chose my actress, which I’m very happy about. Was I angry at the time that we didn’t get it right? Secure. Did information about him later come to light that convinced me that we made the right decision? Absolutely.”

Colbert then urged Wilde to explain why she could believe LaBeouf was fired while he believed he had quit. “We had to replace Shia,” Wilde continued. “He’s a fantastic actor, but it wouldn’t work. When he gave the ultimatum – he or Florence – I chose Florence. He felt like he was stepping down and I felt like we’re moving on without him,” he added, “It’s a matter of semantics.”

Later in the interview, Wilde mentioned “another of our weird rumours, Spit-gate, which you may have heard of”. Colbert then cut her off to ask, “I have Harry Styles spit on something Chris Kiefer? Why or why not? Support your answer.” Wilde laughed and replied, “No, he didn’t. But I think it’s a perfect example that people will seek drama wherever they can. In fact, Harry didn’t spit on Chris…” After wild speculation that Styles spat on Pine at the film’s Venice premiere, both parties denied the incident. Styles even joked about it while performing at Madison Square Garden that same week.
