  • Florence Pugh shared behind-the-scenes photos from the "Don't Worry, Darling" set on Friday.

  • The actress included a snap of herself with the film's director Olivia Wilde, on Instagram.

  • Pugh and Wilde developed a contentious relationship while filming the movie, according to reports.

Florence Pugh shared behind-the-scenes photos from the "Don't Worry, Darling" set — including a snap of herself and Olivia Wilde — in a set of Instagram posts on Friday.

In honor of the film's release in theaters the same day, Pugh wrote in the caption of the first post that she "will always be grateful" for the opportunity to shoot the large-scale production in "peak Covid times." The actress didn't mention any of her costars by name, instead thanking members of the crew and people who bought tickets to see the film.

"We met so many talented people, visited some insane locations, worked hard in the desert dust and looked good whilst doing so," she wrote, adding, "To all of you who helped make this, your dedication and love was seen daily — thank you."

 

Pugh also included a photo of herself with Olivia Wilde, her costar and the film's director, in the post. The image shows both women in costume as Pugh looks at a smiling Wilde.

The film's theatrical release comes after months of reported conflict between Wilde, Pugh, and actor Shia LaBeouf, who was cast as the male lead before Harry Styles took on the role. In a report published Friday, an anonymous source who "spent significant time" on the set told Vulture that Pugh and Wilde got into a "screaming match" on set in January 2021.

The drama came to a head at the "Don't Worry, Darling" press day during the Venice Film Festival on September 5. Pugh reportedly didn't attend the photo call for the movie because she was filming the upcoming "Dune" sequel, but fans theorized that the actress missed the event because of a feud with Wilde. Pugh later made a red-carpet appearance in a Valentino gown.

Speculation surrounding the event carried over into Wilde's appearance on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" Wednesday, where Colbert asked if she wanted to address the speculation. Wilde ultimately said that if she were a man, people would be talking about the movie rather than on-set rumors.

 

"They're praised for being tyrannical, they can be investigated time and time again, and it still doesn't overtake conversations about their actual talent or about the films themselves," Wilde said of male directors in Hollywood.
