Darling, are you still worried?
Rumored foes Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh were spotted attending the same pre-Oscars party Friday night but noticeably kept their distance from one another.
The “Don’t Worry Darling” star, 27, and director, 39, were both seen schmoozing at the Creative Artists Agency’s star-studded bash at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles.
However, the former co-workers were not photographed at any point during the night greeting each other or partying together.
Sources also confirmed to Page Six exclusively that they “definitely did not see them interact.”
Reps for both Wilde and Pugh did not immediately return our requests for comment.
We’re told, though, the féte was packed with many celebrity guests, including Elton John, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore, Vin Diesel, Sandra Bullock, Dua Lipa and Pedro Pascal.
At one point in the night, Wilde was photographed blowing out candles from a cake as it was her 39th birthday on Friday.
Rumblings of bad blood between the actresses have been bubbling for months.
Source previously alleged to Page Six that Pugh was “unhappy” with Wilde over her on-set affair with her co-star Harry Styles because the filmmaker was still dating Jason Sudeikis at the time. Wilde has since split with both men.
There were also reports of drama between Pugh and Shia LaBeouf — who was supposed to star in the film — and a leaked video appeared to show Wilde siding with the “Honey Boy” actor.
“I think this might be a bit of a wake-up call for Miss Flo, and I want to know if you’re open to giving this a shot with me, with us,” the “Booksmart” director could be heard telling LaBeouf, 36, in the clip, causing the nickname “Miss Flo” to go viral.
When it came time for the cast to promote “Don’t Worry Darling,” Pugh skipped out on the New York City premiere of the film, further fueling feud rumors. However, she was reportedly absent because she was busy filming “Dune: Part Two” in Europe.
Pugh also did not attend a pre-scheduled press conference and photo call for the movie at the Venice Film Festival, but arrived in Italy in time for the red carpet premiere.
Then, on the week of the psychological thriller’s theater debut, an insider alleged that Pugh and Wilde had gotten into a “screaming match” on set.

According to the source, the “House” alum had reportedly grown upset with her leading lady’s “frequent, unexplained absences,” which led to the alleged argument.
Warner Bros. executives Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy told Page Six in response to the fight claims, however, that they enjoyed working with Wilde, and added, “Any suggestion of conflict between the studio and Olivia is simply not true.”
Despite the rumored beef, Wilde raved about Pugh in a September 2022 interview.
She said on the “Late Late Show with Stephen Colbert” at the time, “She is sensational in this film. And it is about her being brave enough to listen to the brave people who’ve come before her, who everyone else has ignored, and trust her instincts.”
