Smiling Olivia Wilde brushes aside recent controversy as she continues to promote Don’t Worry Darling

Olivia Wilde was in high spirits as she brushed aside recent controversy to continue promoting her new film Don’t Worry Darling at the San Sebastian International Film Festival on Saturday.

The 38-year-old actress showed off her incredible figure in a floral yellow maxi dress as she waved to viewers of the event at the Kursaalpalast.

It’s a testing time for the director as she grapples with a myriad of issues surrounding the new thriller starring her boyfriend Harry Styles.

Olivia wore her brunette locks in a stylish updo while sporting a soft, glamorous makeup look.

IMAX claimed Friday that “Don’t Worry Darling” became the fastest-selling film of all time for previews at premium theaters scheduled for September 19.

The screenings, which sold out within 24 hours, will be followed by a Q&A beamed live to theaters with Olivia, Harry, Gemma, Nick, Kate Berlant and other cast members, although Florence and Chris will be noticeably absent.

Wilde has been doing her best to remain calm after facing a whirlwind of controversy at the Venice Film Festival over her second directorial film Don’t Worry Darling, which also stars Florence Pugh, her current boyfriend Harry Styles and Chris Pine, among others you can see.

The lovebirds promoted the film with Chris and co-stars Gemma Chan and Nick Kroll, but Florence, who plays the lead, was absent from much of the celebrations.

She skipped a press conference for the film that Olivia and the actors attended because her flight was said to land too late to get there, although she was later seen nearby in Venice while it was taking place.

During the premiere screening and on the red carpet, Florence seemed to keep her distance from her director.

Trouble within the production spilled over into the premiere when some fans on social media were convinced Harry had spat on his costar Chris as he sat down next to him.

A video showed Harry sitting next to Chris, who had been clapping but stopped immediately when his costar sat down.

The video didn’t clearly show spitting, however, and a second clip from a different angle showed the two chatting politely to each other just seconds later.

A representative for Pine later vehemently denied there was any spit.

Florence’s original co-star Shia LaBeouf also contributed to the drama surrounding the film.

He was originally slated to star in Don’t Worry Darling before Olivia replaced him with Harry.

After LaBeouf was sued by his ex-FKA branches and details of his alleged sexual harassment and harassment surfaced against them, Olivia claimed she fired him from the production.

But the Honey Boy actor later produced a video Wilde apparently sent him asking him to stay with the production, and he claimed he left “lack of rehearsal time” while emailing Variety forwarded to support his case.

Florence and Olivia have reportedly had a quiet argument after the actress reportedly became uncomfortable with Olivia’s relationship with Harry on set, though she claimed to Vanity Fair that her relationship with former partner Jason Sudeikis was “long over” before she and Harry met for the first time.
