Florence Pugh is reportedly skipping the New York premiere of “Don’t Worry Darling” amid ongoing drama behind the scenes.
Rolling Stone reports that the film’s red carpet, set to take place on Sept. 19, will be missing its leading lady due to another scheduling conflict.
The official reason cited for her no-show is that she’s busy filming “Dune: Part Two” in Budapest — and director Denis Villeneuve reportedly can’t spare Pugh for a press event for another film.
“From what I understand, there is friction, but I don’t know why,” one source, who was on the “Don’t Worry Darling” set, told Rolling Stone, addressing Pugh’s alleged beef with director Olivia Wilde.
“It’s pretty clear she’s [Pugh] choosing not to be a part of the PR. It’s clearly not beneficial to Olivia to not have her be a part of the PR. It has to be a Florence decision.”
Pugh will also be missing a special interactive Q&A from New York City’s AMC Lincoln Square on Sept. 19 that will feature Wilde and most of the main cast.ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
