Denying any arguments throughout productions, the film personnel said in a statement that rumors of ongoing tension between the director and Pugh were simply not true.
"As a crew, we've avoided addressing the absurd gossip surrounding the movie we're so proud of, but feel the need to correct the anonymous 'sources' quoted in a recent article," the statement noted. "Any allegations about unprofessional behavior on the set of Don't Worry Darling are completely false."
The statement praised Wilde, 38, as "an incredible leader and director" present in every aspect of the production and managing the set with "class and respect for everyone involved."

"There was never a screaming match between our director and anyone, let alone a member of our cast," the sources clarified. "We are happy to put our names on this, as real people who worked on the film, and who have witnessed and benefitted from the collaborative and safe space Olivia creates."
The statement further highlighted the crew's excitement for release, adding, "We can't wait for you to see it on the big screen."
The producer of Don't Worry Darling, Miri Yoon, further clarified that the "rumors of screaming matches between our director and leading lady on set are completely unfounded" and that those involved in the project hoped that people watching it have a nice time.
Pugh, 26, took to Instagram to mark the film's release by sharing some production images in an emotional post. "We met so many talented people, visited some insane locations, worked hard in the desert dust and looked good whilst doing so," she wrote. "This film was such an epic story on such a large scale to shoot, all while during peak Covid times. For that I will always be grateful. To all of you who helped make this, your dedication and love was seen daily."
