Florence Pugh is not a fan of Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde’s relationship, and she reportedly has an “uncomfortable” relationship with the Don’t Worry Darling director.
Pugh and Styles star as the leads of Wilde’s upcoming thriller, which is set to premiere on September 23. Per Page Six, an insider said that the Midsommar star was unhappy after Olivia and Harry started dating on the set of the film around the same time as Olivia’s split from ex-fiancé Jason Sudeikis.
“I can tell you for a fact that Flo seeing Olivia and Harry all over each other on set did not go down well as Olivia was still with Jason when she first hooked up with Harry,” the source said. “Jason and the kids visited Olivia on set at the beginning a few times, so I think this all made people feel a little uncomfortable.”
Wilde and Sudeikis were together from 2011 until November 2020; they got engaged in 2013 and share two children together: Otis, 7, and Daisy, 5. The House alum started dating Styles in January 2021 after meeting on the set of Don’t Worry Darling. A month into officially dating, an insider said the couple was going slow and steady.
“[Olivia] doesn’t want to move too fast and scare [Harry] off,” the insider said. “She’s been married before and had a near-decade relationship with Jason and has kids, so she is eager to see where this relationship goes with intentions of it being great but seeing how it all plays out.”
During an appearance at CinemaCon in April this year promoting Don’t Worry Darling, Wilde was served with child custody papers in the middle of her presentation. The Ted Lasso star and creator was reportedly unaware that Wilde would be served with the papers at the event, with a source saying that we would “never condone” delivering the legal documents in such an “inappropriate manner.”
Wilde wrote on an Instagram post of Pugh last month, “Watching this woman work was such a f—ing thrill! Cannot wait to show you more. @florencepugh @dontworrydarling”
