Florence Pugh is said to be unhappy with her Don’t Worry Darling co-star and director Olivia Wilde as it’s claimed she ‘hooked up’ with Harry Styles while engaged to Jason Sudeikis.
Harry, 28, and Florence, 26, play a married couple in the sexually charged movie, which tells the story of a 1950s housewife living with her husband in a utopian experimental community. Olivia appears as a character called Bunny.
Olivia, 38, and Jason, 46, got engaged in 2012 and share children Otis, eight, and Daisy, five.

MailOnline has contacted a spokersperson for Olivia Wilde, Harry Styles and Jason Sudeikis for comment.
Fans have noticed that Florence has not praised Olivia as a director on the project.
She is said to have failed to ‘like’ a post in which Wilde included the full official trailer for Don’t Worry Darling last week.
Yet Olivia shared a picture of Pugh and wrote: ‘Watching this woman work was such a f–king thrill! Cannot wait to show you more. @florencepugh@dontworrydarling.’
Florence didn’t respond but that same day posted a trailer for another new project, Oppenheimer.’
One fan wrote: ‘The way Florence Pugh has yet to post about don’t worry darling even though there are two trailers out for it and yet she’ll post about every single other project that she’s doing right now like what did Olivia Wilde do ????’
However, a source told Page Six Florence was already scheduled to post about Oppenheimer that day for some specific reason and it had nothing to do with a response to Olivia
Olivia and Harry will soon step on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival for the world premiere of the new movie and no doubt all eyes will be on them.
