Florence Pugh pleads to stop obsessing over Harry Styles' sex scenes in 'Don't Worry Darling'
Pugh stated, 'When it's reduced to your sex scenes, or to watch the most famous man in the world go down on someone, it's not why we do it'
Olivia Wilde's hugely anticipated movie 'Don't Worry Darling' will premiere on September 23, 2022. The cast is one of the main factors contributing to the enthusiasm for the movie. Harry Styles and Florence Pugh play the film's major characters, Jack and Alice, respectively.
Given Harry Styles' prominence, fans are closely observing even the smallest things in the teaser clips. One video in particular, which featured Styles and Pugh sharing a very private moment, seems to have caught the attention of the internet. This particular moment was inspired by the popular song 'Watermelon Sugar', and it is now the fantasy powerhouse of innumerable fan edits. Pugh appears a little disturbed by the reaction from Styles' fans and is worried that Styles' strong spotlight would overshadow the meticulous work put into the movie.
In a recent interview with Harper's Bazaar, Pugh stated, "When it's reduced to your sex scenes, or to watch the most famous man in the world go down on someone, it's not why we do it. It's not why I'm in this industry." Pugh claims that she was first offered the supporting character of Bunny, which was later played by Wilde herself.
The 'Midsommar' star signed on for the movie's major role in April 2020, and was supposed to work with Shia LaBeouf. In September of the same year, it was made public that Styles had taken the 'Transformers' star's place when the actor allegedly withdrew owing to schedule issues.
Pugh said, "Obviously, the nature of hiring the most famous pop star in the world, you're going to have conversations like that. That's just not what I'm going to be discussing because [this movie is] bigger and better than that. And the people who made it are bigger and better than that."
'Don't Worry Darling' is Styles' first significant motion picture release after making his professional acting debut in Christopher Nolan's 'Dunkirk' in 2017. In addition, Harry reportedly signed a five-film contract with Marvel Studios to play the role of Eros, the evil Thanos's brother who is rumored to have the ability to arouse at a distance. He is also set to appear in Michael Grandage's 'My Policeman'.
The former member of One Direction has been well received by Hollywood overall, but occasionally his notoriety has gone against him. Styles bravely competed for the lead role in Baz Luhrmann's 'Elvis', but Austin Butler finally won the part thanks to a performance that is already garnering Oscar acclaim.
Styles had been rejected for the role because, in Luhrmann's opinion, he already appeared to be too much of an icon to play another. "Harry is a really talented actor. I would work on something with him. The real issue with Harry is, he's Harry Styles. He's already an icon," Luhrmann said in an interview with Rolling Stone.
