‘Don’t Worry Darling’ actress Olivia Wilde made an appearance on The Late Show to discuss the gossip and ongoing controversy surrounding the movie.

The filmmaker and actress had a long conversation with host Stephen Colbert during which they covered a wide range of topics, including whether or not Chris Pine was genuinely spat on by Harry Styles and why Shia LaBeouf was fired.

Colbert questioned about the incident in Venice when a video of Styles allegedly spitting on Pine went viral.  “Did Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine? Why or why not? Support your answer.”

“No, he did not. But I think it’s a perfect example of, like, people will look for drama anywhere they can. Harry did not spit on Chris, in fact… He really didn’t.” Wilde stated.

She then went on, “People can look at a video that shows evidence of someone not spitting on someone else and they’ll still see what they want to see. And that is the creation of drama, and that is clickbait.”

“I have nothing but respect for Florence’s talent. She’s fantastic. She’s on the set of her movie Dune right now, and there’s nothing cooler than a busy actress. I have nothing against her in for any reason.” Olivia said when questioned about the tension.

“Just to be clear here, did you fire Shia LaBeouf?”  The interviewer added.

“We had to replace Shia. He is a fantastic actor, but it wasn’t going to work. And, you know, when he gave me the ultimatum of him or Florence, I chose Florence. And that was him feeling he was stepping away and me feeling like we were moving on without him. It’s a question of semantics.” She answered.

This week’s release of the psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling centers on a 1950s housewife (Pugh) whose seemingly ideal existence is actually far from it. After her well-received 2019 directorial debut, Booksmart, Wilde is now directing for the second time.
