fan Music star Harry Styles’ arrival in Venice on Monday caused a stir, but controversial discussions about his film Don’t Worry Darling were quickly shut down. In its mere appearance, a dystopia about a seemingly perfect community with dark secrets flooded the internet with baseless gossip.
Claims that the film’s lead, Florence Pugh, got into an altercation over director Olivia Wilde’s relationship with Styles have been denied, but they’re still on the same page. The factory had an even bigger problem when she didn’t show up for the press conference – she was scheduled to walk the red carpet for the premiere later Monday.
Wilde clearly understood the rumors all too well. Wilde told reporters, “When it comes to the constant tabloid gossip and public hype, the internet feeds itself. I don’t feel the need to contribute. It feeds enough. I think it is,” he said. Pugh, who plays a housewife determined to uncover a community secret, was reportedly late for Venice because she was filming “Dune: Part 2″ in Hungary. I’m so grateful that she was able to be here tonight even though it’s still in production,” Wilde said. “Her words cannot express how honored she is to have her in the lead role.”
With millions of fans sticking to his every word, Styles was usually cautious. “Making music is really personal. There is a part of acting that draws on my experience, but most of the time I’m pretending to be someone else. That’s what I enjoy the most.” I think,” he said.
He will soon be appearing in ‘My Policeman’, playing a passionate gay man at a time when homosexuality was illegal in the UK. However, Styles wasn’t sure if he needed more acting in his future. I felt like,” he said. “I try not to think too much about the future…one day at a time.”
Wilde said he hopes “Don’t Worry Darling” will generate discussion about patriarchal rule at a contentious time in US politics. “But it’s also timeless. I don’t think there will come a time when the idea of controlling someone’s body is irrelevant to fighting,” said Wilde. I want you to feel heard and inspired … the kind of revolutionary who is willing to sacrifice everything to do the right thing,” she added. “The superhero I want to see right now.” – AFP
