But the clash between Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh was seen as the most problematic part of the film’s production. A major disagreement between the two was how the film was promoted as Florence Pugh found the director’s promotion of the film demeaning.

In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Florence Pugh criticized Olivia Wilde for focusing too much on the film’s sex scenes during promotion, as she wanted the film to be about plot and performance. He found the discussion demeaning and she said:

“When it comes down to your sex scenes, or watching the most famous man in the world go down on someone, that’s not what we’re doing it for. That’s not why I am in this industry…”

Their feud escalated further when the actress indicated that she would not be attending the film’s premiere as she was working on Denis Villeneuve Dunes 2.

Florence Pugh rather than Olivia Wilde?

Despite all the rage, the film failed in the eyes of critics, receiving a meager 33% on rotten tomatoes. As tweeted by Matt Ramos, audiences cheered whenever the actor was onscreen, but fell silent during Olivia Wilde.
