After “Don’t Worry Darling” director Olivia Wilde claimed that she sacked him in order to defend star Florence Pugh, and Shia LaBeouf had the last word.
LaBeouf told the Hollywood Reporter, “It is what it is. All the best to her and her movie.
In an interview with Vanity Fair that was published on Thursday, Wilde, 38, had once more asserted that she had made the decision to fire the 36-year-old actor, citing his conduct on the set and her duty to Pugh, 26, as justifications. Her comments come weeks after LaBeouf revealed that he had quit the movie of his own free will due to issues with Wilde’s directing.
According to Wilde’s statement to Vanity Fair, “[Florence] was my responsibility.” I resemble a mother wolf. Making the call was challenging, but he could understand it. He probably wouldn’t have loved the process. He approaches his task with a belligerent intensity.
She continued, “It wasn’t the ethos that I require in my shows. I think it’s a huge loss to the film industry when someone with his potential is unable to work, so I want him to improve.
Since his ex-girlfriend, the British artist FKA Twigs, accuses him of sexual and emotional abuse, LaBeouf’s reputation in Hollywood has been damaged.
In leaked messages, emails, and videos between himself and Wilde, the former child star has publicly rejected reports that he was fired from the movie, stating that he left because of a shortage of rehearsal time with his co-stars. He has also referred to the allegations as “beautiful clickbait.”
Olivia Wilde addresses rumors she left Jason Sudeikis for Harry Styles:

I was never fired, Olivia,” he wrote in an email to the director. “Although I can get the appeal of pushing that tale given the current social climate and the social currency it brings. LaBeouf also uploaded a video message that was allegedly delivered by Wilde, in which she seems to be pleading with the actor to return to the set.
When questioned about the discussions that were disclosed by the media, Wilde retorted, “This subject is so much more intricate than can be articulated in private texting released out of context. “The only thing I’ll say is that he was replaced and that we couldn’t continue with him. I hope his rehabilitation goes well.
In December 2020, LaBeouf was replaced by Harry Styles in the now infamous movie, and the “Booksmart” director dismissed claims of hostility between her and Pugh as “baseless speculations.”
According to sources, Pugh was upset with Wilde because the actress was having an affair with Styles while still married to “Ted Lasso” actor Jason Sudeikis, the father of her two children.
When a reporter questioned Wilde about the drama this week during a panel at the Venice International Film Festival premiere, Pugh was not there. Wilde declined to respond.
But Wilde insists that there is no animosity between the two women.
According to Wilde, who spoke to Vanity Fair, “it is exceedingly uncommon that people presume the best from women in power.” They don’t often give us the benefit of the doubt, in my opinion. Florence performed the task for which I had engaged her flawlessly. She astounded me. We got along great and I was in awe of her every day.
Why did Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh split up?
