Florence Pugh will limit her press tour for the upcoming thriller Don’t Worry Darling, according to reports.
The Olivia Wilde-directed psychological thriller, starring Harry Styles and Chris Pine, tells the story of a seemingly perfect suburban life in the 1950s.
However, the cracks in Jack’s (Harry) and Alice’s (Florence) marriage begin to show as Alice is forced to question everything she knows and whether Victory’s idealized community is real.
An official synopsis for the film explains how Jack works for the top-secret Victory project, spending all day at headquarters with CEO Frank (Chris Pine) and the other husbands in the community.
However, reports claim that the 26-year-old Black Widow actress is only promoting the film at the Venice Film Festival.
“She’s waving at us from the set of Dune because she’s not doing press,” a New Line Cinema executive told The Wrap.
This comes after Page Six alleged that Florence and director Olivia clashed behind the scenes because her romance with global sensation Harry “didn’t go very well” with Florence.
When the first trailer for the film was released in May, it showed a stunning moment where the on-screen character of Alice and Harry engage in oral sex on the dining room table, and all the fans on social media could talk about it.
During a recent interview, the Oxford Florence actress refused to comment on the scene, criticizing viewers for reducing the film to just one sex scene.
“When it comes down to your sex scenes, or watching the most famous man in the world fuck someone, that’s not why we do it.” That’s not why I’m in this industry,” he told Harper’s Bazaar.
“Obviously the nature of hiring the most famous pop star in the world, you’re going to have conversations like that.
‘That’s not what I’m going to discuss because [this movie is] bigger and better than that. And the people who did it are bigger and better than that.’
Former One Direction star Harry addressed the hot scene earlier this year, saying he felt vulnerable and had never kissed anyone on screen before.
“I think the biggest thing in that business is trust,” he said during an interview on The Howard Stern Show.
“I think if you talk about it properly with everyone involved [that helps].’
Metro.co.uk has contacted representatives for Florence Pugh and Olivia Wilde for comment.
Don’t Worry Darling lands in theaters on September 23.
