Florence Pugh and Harry Styles star as the lead characters in Olivia Wilde’s upcoming movie, “Don’t Worry Darling”, which is set to be released on 23 September 2022.

Florence, 26, is allegedly “unhappy” that her co-star Harry, 28, “hooked up” with director Olivia Wilde, 38 on set, while Olivia was still engaged to Ted Lasso actor, Jason Sudeikis.

Speaking to Page Six, an insider 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.”

Olivia Wilde, 38, and Jason Sudeikis, 46, began dating in 2011 and got engaged the following year. They didn’t marry during their 10 years together, but welcomed two children Otis, eight, and Daisy, five.

Filming for Don’t Worry Darling began in October 2020, while Olivia and Jason are said to have split in November 2020. However, exact dates aren’t clear and it is believed the main reason for the split was Olivia’s affair with Harry.

The distraught father sent Olivia custody documents regarding their shared children, which she was stunned to receive while live on stage at CinemaCon.

The cast of “Don’t Worry Darling” are said to have been unimpressed by Harry and Olivia being “all over” each other on set, with Florence Pugh among those who’ve fallen out with Olivia.

“I’ve lived in my body for a long time. I’m fully aware of my breast size and am not scared of it.

“Grow up. Respect people. Respect bodies. Respect all women. Respect humans. Life will get a whole lot easier, I promise.”

In June 2020, after she called out rude comments directed towards her relationship, she told Elle UK: “I have the right to hang out and be with and go out with anyone I want to. I’ve always found this part of what people do really bizarre.

“I’m an actor because I like acting and I don’t mind people watching my stuff, but people have no right to educate me on my private life.”
