The unlikely A-lister who backed Olivia Wilde’s big career change

Olivia Wilde has slowly entered the directing world in recent years. After it was announced that the “House” actor would be directing “Don’t Worry Darling,” it was announced that she has also signed on to work on a secret Marvel film. The actor responded to the report with a spider emoji, leading fans to believe she would be directing the new Spider-Woman movie. But with these new directing opportunities, Wilde still has some criticisms.

Don’t Worry Darling actor Shia LaBeouf was rumored to have been fired because his acting process, which Wilde said “seems to require a combative energy,” didn’t suit her directing style. LaBeouf quashed those rumors in an email to the director that Variety received. He claimed that he actually finished the film because he couldn’t find time to rehearse with the other actors.

The ‘Rush’ actor was also rumored to be feuding with Florence Pugh, who stars in ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ opposite Harry Styles. In an Aug. 16 interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the Marvel actor said, “If it boils down to your sex scenes or watching the most famous man in the world go at someone, that’s not why we do it. I’m in this industry.” Fans took this comment as a subtle swipe at Wilde’s directing style, assuming that Pugh wasn’t entirely happy with the way the film was being promoted. While some actors questioned Wilde’s directing, a certain actor helped her.

Bradley Cooper endorsed Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde is looking forward to the future as she gets more opportunities to make movies. The Cowboys & Aliens actress told Variety that she was fortunate that Booksmart wasn’t a huge box-office hit, as it gave her another opportunity to showcase her directing skills. “I really feel at this point that I’ve earned the right to say I’m a director,” she said. But due to financial problems, she faced another challenge – she also had to act in the film.

“I asked friends of the director what that experience would be like… and they all said, ‘Oh, it’s so awesome,'” Wilde told Maggie Gyllenhaal during an interview with Interview magazine. She mentioned that Bradley Cooper was among her supporters who embarked on this new obstacle. “It’s going to be really wonderful to be able to direct from the scenes,” he reportedly said.

Wilde also mentioned that the hardest part about being an actor and director on the same film was switching back and forth between the two jobs. Taika Waititi, who is known to star in some of his own movies like the Thor movies, had a similar struggle. remembered a time when he yelled at the crew across a river while disguised as his character.
