Florence Pugh Slams ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ Being Reduced To Sex Scenes, Says ‘We’re Better Than That!’

By  | 

Following a very successful world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival, fans have finally had a look at the trailer for the movie Don’t Worry Darling starring Florence Pugh and Harry Styles. Olivia Wilde’s sophomore directorial feature is set to be released in theatres from September 23 onwards, but the trailers seem to have spewed a massively steamy and over-sexual reaction.

How Has The Reaction To The Don’t Worry Darling Trailer Been?

Contrary to the expectations of the stars, Don’t Worry Darling has begun trending but, only for its steamy scenes. Fans and critics alike, have been merely discussing and focusing on the sex scenes in the steamy trailers.

Instead of the talented duo’s acting and hard work in Don’t Worry Darling, the most talked about aspect is the sex and the trending scene is literally a cunnilingus scene based in the kitchen. People are also only anticipating a rumoured nude scene with Harry Styles, in the movie. They are really looking forward to seeing good sex on the screen and this has taken over the very plot of the movie.

What Was Florence Pugh’s Response To This Reaction?

This reaction from the masses to Don’t Worry Darling‘s trailers has visibly rilled up Florence Pugh and I totally understand her responses. In a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar, she exclaimed, “When it’s reduced to your sex scenes, or to watch the most famous man in the world naked, going down on someone, it’s not why we do it. It’s not why I’m in this industry. 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.”

I genuinely believe that no actor in the world wants to be preferred and favoured for doing steamy scenes, instead of their acting skills. This is, therefore, a very valid reaction. She deserves more and I’m very glad that she’s taking a stand and asking for it.

Florence Pugh was originally supposed to play the role of Bunny in Don’t Worry Darling but then, she was chosen to play the lead, Alice.

Her role is that of a suburban housewife who begins to question her perfect suburban life with the white picket fence and therefore, she begins to crack and bend the wrong way. She keeps wondering what her husband is up to. What is this mystery project and are they even safe, in this area?

Don’t Worry Darling dares to focus on the aspect of female pleasure and gratification and the same has been over-sexualised by the masses. This is wrong as the focus needs to be on the duo’s commendable acting and the thrilling storyline. This really needs to change, don’t you agree?

After all, this isn’t porn. The acting and the hard work of everyone involved matter more and hence, the respect that she has asked for, must be given. We should genuinely work towards the same.
