If you can’t beat the petty, join the petty.
That’s exactly what Florence Pugh’s glam squad is doing.
By now, I’m sure you’ve heard about the on-set drama between Pugh and her “Don’t Worry Darling” co-star, Olivia Wilde.
Acting Like One Big Happy Family… With A Lot Of BTS Drama!
It started while the actors were filming the movie and Wilde struck up a romantic relationship with Harry Styles.
Styles stars opposite Pugh in ‘DWD’ as her husband, Jack.
The role of Jack was originally intended for Shia LaBeouf, but he backed out of the production and was recast.
Last month, Wilde claimed that she let LaBeouf go from the production in order to maintain the level of professionalism she expects on set.
Shia LaBeouf Calls Wilde’s BLUFF
“I say this as someone who is such an admirer of his work. His process was not conducive to the ethos that I demand in my productions. He has a process that, in some ways, seems to require a combative energy, and I don’t personally believe that is conducive to the best performances,” Wilde explained to Vogue. “I believe that creating a safe, trusting environment is the best way to get people to do their best work. Ultimately, my responsibility is to the production and to the cast to protect them. That was my job.”
Well, the former Disney Channel Star saw what she said and shot back.
LaBeouf claims HE QUIT the film, not the other way around.
He also shared two emails he sent Wilde on August 24th and 25th outlining his disapproval.
LaBeouf wrote, “You and I both know the reasons for my exit. I quit your film because your actors and I couldn’t find time to rehearse.”
He also shared text messages, emails and a video Wilde sent to him begging him to come back to the production.
Shia Outs Olivia For “Miss Flo” Nickname
In the video she allegedly sent him, Wilde says, “You know, I think this might be a bit of a wake-up call for Miss Flo [Pugh], and I want to know if you’re open to giving this a shot with me, with us. If she really commits, if she really puts her mind and heart into it at this point and if you guys can make peace — and I respect your point of view, I respect hers — but if you guys can do it, what do you think? Is there hope? Will you let me know?”
“Miss Flo” has since become a moniker for the 26-year-old actress, and her glam squad is having a field day with it.
Pugh’s Team Capitalize On “Miss Flo” Moniker
A photo of Pugh and her glam team has gone viral. In it, her hair and makeup artists are wearing black T-shirts that have “Miss Flo” printed on them.

Prior to Monday’s Venice Film Festival premiere of “Don’t Worry Darling,” her stylist also shared a photo of Pugh and captioned it “Miss Flo.”
Wilde’s stylist, Karla Welch, countered by posting an Instagram Story promising, “There’s always more to the story…”
The “Miss Flo” trolling is the latest wild turn of events in the drama surrounding the film.
Earlier this week, Styles was accused of spitting on Chris Pine, and “Spitgate 2022” broke loose on social media.
However, a rep for Pine has shot down the spitting rumors.
