Shia LaBeouf, Florence Pugh, And Harry Styles, As Well As Chris Pine’s Spit-Gate Are All Addressed By Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde does not want Stephen Colbert to be concerned about the numerous speculations circulating about her newest film.

Prior to the Warner Bros. movie’s release this Friday, the Don’t Worry Darling director and actress appeared as a guest on CBS’ The Late Show on Wednesday. There, she addressed a number of rumors surrounding the project, beginning with Shia LaBeouf.

Early in September, LaBeouf spoke out in response to Wilde’s assertions that he had been let go from Don’t Worry Darling, claiming that he had actually quit the movie and offering messages and videos that showed her pleading with him to remain in the cast.

Wilde claimed that she attempted to act as a middleman between the actor and her main actress Florence Pugh when Colbert questioned her about whether LaBeouf left the movie or was fired from it. “Once it became clear that it was not a tenable working relationship, I was given an ultimatum,” she told the late-night host. “I chose my actress, which I’m very happy I did,” she stated.

Colbert then pressed her to explain why she believes he was fired but LaBeouf claims he resigned, to which she said that given the circumstances, they both felt as though they were going on without one another.

The director then spoke about the alleged Spit-Gate rumor. Reading from his notecard, Colbert asked: “Did Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine? Why or why not? Support your answer.” Wilde laughed and replied, “No, he did not. But I think it’s a perfect example of, like, people will look for drama anywhere they can.”
