Olivia Wilde promotes 'Dont Worry Darling' on Kelly Clarkson Show plus box office projections


Olivia Wilde was on The Kelly Clarkson Show and they discussed being single moms in the spotlight and Don't Worry Darling.

- On being a single mom: "Reshaping a family is tricky. The one benefit is it has allowed for some deep conversations with my kids: about emotions and about happiness amd about what family means and love. It's actually allowed me to get to know them in a different way...its tricky because we're not doing it in private."



Wilde and Clarkson talk about having relationships split in public and trying to protect your kids. Wilde says she tried to protect the narrative for the sake of her kids but had to give up correcting every little thing and focus more on them.

- Clarkson compliments her on the chemistry of the ensemble, Wilde responded, "We were in the middle of a pandemic, in a bubble, never saw anyone's mouth, and it really was amazing because everyone bonded. We knew we were so lucky to be making art during a difficult time for everybody and we knew we had each other's backs."

- Praises Florence Pugh again and says how lucky they were to have her.

- How she keeps her composure when so much of her private life is made public: "my stuff is out there but I'm alive and my kids are alive and that's what gets me thru every single day." Wilde adds she doesn't try to control the narrative and isn't on Instagram. She says she's trying to be a model for her kids on how to deal with bullies.

Kelly says she will send what she *really* wants to say to a friend to make herself feel better. "You know when people are like 'Will this really make you feel good?'" Kelly says. "I'm like 'Damn right.Yes it will. It will make me feel amazing.'"

- Kelly asks if she thinks there's a double standard with how she's being treated vs male colleagues who do the same. Olivia says yes but so many other women in other industries face the same problem. "Sometimes when it hurts me is when it's coming from other women. Can't we give each other the benefit of the doubt?"

There's a really cute interaction when Kelly asks her about directing musicians on set:



- While Warner Brothers is projecting a conservative $17 million opening, ticket sales could see box office weekend anywhere between $20-24 million. From The Hollwood Reporter: "Hollywood insiders aren’t convinced that the general moviegoing public cares about the off-screen drama. If anything, the publicity may have increased awareness."

I’ve noticed right-wing YouTubers are already labelling it the “man-hating movie”. Comparing the main villain to Jordan Peterson is misandrist, I guess.
"Sometimes when it hurts me is when it's coming from other women. Can't we give each other the benefit of the doubt?"

She has some nerve to say this as if we didn't hear the way she called Florence 'Miss Flo'.
or just, you know, the fact that she was begging an abuser of women to come back to her set lmao
and then worked with him again on a music video that was more like porn than anything else.

She's always using that language to get around being an asshole. it sucks because she definitely feels sooo indignant about all of this (especially because she's for sure getting a lot of legit garbage from women for dating harry styles) but she's awful herself.
It's giving

like i wonder what goes on in her head when she says delusional things like this
It’s disingenuous for her to speak out on female empowerment and creating a safe space for women in the industry, when she went out of her way to praise her boyfriend publicly while this was filming, and her pandering to an abuser by throwing another woman under the bus.
"Sometimes when it hurts me is when it's coming from other women. Can't we give each other the benefit of the doubt?"

We did give you the benefit of the doubt and you wrecked it, so...
Yeah we were all giving her the benefit of the doubt until she lied to us and then proceeded to gaslight lol
Lmao that clip is cute. I'm curious to watch the movie, sounds like it may not be that deep but probably entertaining
I don’t feel one way or the other about Wilde. Pretty sure I’ve never seen her act, I don’t give a fuck about Sudeikis or Styles, etc. She’s just another privileged celeb to me.

But, while they’re good points, everything she says sounds like PR regurgitation and/or “I expect this kind of treatment, but don’t expect it back from me”.

Meanwhile Kelly comes off so genuine as a person — even if, for all we know, she could be the worst, lol.

I will forever side eye Kelly for being good friends with Snoop Dogg. Even if she hasn’t heard about the multiple rape accusations (which I’m giving her the benefit of the doubt on), surely she knows his music and maybe even some of his comments about women? Idk, she does seem really nice but I can’t help but judge her for that friendship.
Oh I didn’t know that! I honestly don’t keep up with celebs like I used to, so I have no idea what goes on in their lives unless it’s posted about here — and even then my memory is shit so I’m likely forget things that hardly matter to me, lol.

But, damn.
What??? Snoop Dogg has allegations against him???

didn’t she basically cheat on jason to get with harry? single mom my ass lol
Wasn’t he rumoured to be cheating with Keeley Hazell?
yes lol and jason went public with keeley around the same time as harry and olivia did
And Jason wrote a whole ass character on ted lasso based on her, down to the very name. I fucking hope Olivia cheated his goofy ass, Idgaf.
Didn’t they break up briefly and get back together? They both we’re probably cheating and with other people
How does that change the fact that she's a single mom? Harry ain't raising those kids.

Personally, I find it really odd that English speakers still use the very dated single mom expression. Motherhood isn't a relationship status, they're solo moms bc they're either raising the kids alone or being their primary caregiver.

This is a super weird comment. Literally NO ONE knows what went down between Olivia and Jason. There's all sorts of insinuations and rumors, but no one actually knows shit. Don't forget he went public with another woman at the exact same time.

The way the Deuxmoi subreddit continues to insist that she did nothing wrong and that all of her bad PR around this movie is because she's dating Harry Styles is wild. Especially since defending Olivia usually involves trashing Florence Pugh.

Olivia has always been a White Feminist. It's literally her brand.
The subreddit has been so fucking weird about everything lately. I feel like the demo there mostly skews younger so they jump to whatever logic gets upvoted the most.
the trashing of Florence Pugh to big up Olivia makes me so mad like they say they hate the language used to bring down Olivia but then use it against Florence.

it’s not blind hating Olivia at this point, that video and that Puck article gives people a reason to dislike her.
them pretending like miss flo wasn't an insult or derogatory really pissed me off. like if anyone pulled that shit on wilde right now - they'd call it out.

Yeah her white feminist centrist lens is toothless and generic that the studios eat it up so they can seem progressive. The bar is so low it's on the floor.
i came over to ontd cause i just left that specific deuxmoi thread where they're talking about this. i felt like i was losing it. normally they have good judgement and this was one of the first times i read a thread of theirs where i was just like 'jfc this is a mess?????' like it's not "feminist" to defend a woman who did the stuff olivia did. and some a large chunk of them are saying she didn't even do anything wrong (which ????). but olivia doesn't have a legit proper defense for this. yeah male directors often do worse - but that doesn't mean we don't criticize female directors for doing bad things too. and if i male director had done what she'd done - they freaking would be ripping him apart. whether they want to acknowledge that or not.

and everyone implying that anyone that's upset with olivia is a harry fan is so damn annoying. im so tired of people saying that for olivia's defense. like no i truly do not give a shit about harry. i didn't even get into one direction.

huh, i always tought single mom was used to describe women who were left alone to support their kids 100% on their own both physicially and financially...?

That is what it means, lol.

Olivia is clearly using it to say that she is unmarried + a mother which, using that definition, she has been since her kids were born since she and Jason never married.

No, it just means you don’t have a live-in partner helping to raise them while they’re with you. Single parenthood is a spectrum, there aren’t hard rules.
I always took it to mean you’re raising the kids alone. With primary custody. And the kids either don’t see the other parent or they’re not involved as they should be.

It just sounds like she’s trying to be relatable and get sympathy from the public.

It’s such a pet peeve of mine when divorced people call themselves single parents when both parents are heavily involved. They have no idea how hard single parents actually have it.

Omg my mom used to do that shit, "you have no idea how hard it was to be a single mother and have to raise you myself" and I was like omg you have split custody and my dad is literally just down the street and is a super involved parent, I even lived with him full time for a few years.
To be fair Kelly was the one who described her as a single parent (like herself).

I don't have much to say about this, only I love Kelly
But you're not a single mom. You're not in a committed romantic relationship with the birth father.
You're in a co-parenting relationship with birth father. And staff.

My mom was a single mom, no birth father around. No one to watch us. Latchkey from 7 on.

Weirdo you saw plenty of mouths while you were making "art". I'll see this when it's on free free tv.
Why are so many people in here gatekeeping single motherhood, this is wild!!! I was a single mom raised by a single mom and life was hard for all of it but I don’t begrudge a mother in different circumstances also finding hard, lonely moments in that
🤔 food for thought.

It's not gatekeeping at all. The discourse about single motherhood and the disparagement of it was never about women coparenting with a male partner. The discussion of ~broken homes~ aligns more with what Olivia is going through, not the single family home panic.

I think people are reacting moreso to what it appears she’s implying about her situation to the struggles and circumstances that is commonly associated with single mothers for unearned sympathetic effect. By textbook definition, I think anyone would agree that she’s a single mother but her status of a millionaire celebrity co-parenting with another millionaire celebrity makes her circumstance much more comfortable (though I’m sure not perfect) than the circumstance that the OC writes to which many people equate the phrase. Again, I think many people’s issue is the disconnect between the letter of the words (a mother who is single) and the spirit of them (a mother raising child(ren) with little assistance or resource) and what’s unfairly evoked from there (a specific type and/or level of struggle that does not exist).

I think people are bothered because it seems like she’s equating her situation to women who are struggling and she has a father of her children and staff that most women don’t have the luxury of having.

I think if you look at it on a spectrum of 'fairness', stripping the meaning away from single mom or even single parent puts way more of the burden of explanation on people who are *actually* raising children with no involvement from the other party, which is harder in most ways no matter what kind of person the other party is or was. It's ok to feel like it's harder to be a divorced parent with a custody arrangement than it was when you were together, but it doesn't have to render current terminology meaningless to be legitimate, it can be it's own thing.

I have divorced parents who had me 50/50 (one week on, one off) and it always annoyed the shit out of me when my mom called herself a “single mom” because it implied that she was going it alone when she literally got a week off from me every other week lmao, she used it to get sympathy and absolutely let people think I had some deadbeat dad even though he was there just as much if not more for me and never once called himself a “single dad”

anyway i saw a clip of harry styles and his 'we are lucky to be here >:(' acting and i want this movie to flop so bad. i threw my back out but dwd bombing could cure it maybe
sure looked tricky dancing like a teen bopper most of her new boo's gigs like a true "Almot Famous' roadie

via GIPHY

i think with the florence/shia texts and everything else, the situation is a lot more nuanced than "olivia threw florence under the bus and took credit" and i am extremely hesitant to accept shia's version of events, especially when he straight up fucking lied about his abusive childhood trauma. i do not think the issue between olivia and florence was about shia at all and i think that what she's saying is true: he stepped away thinking one thing, while she thought another.

that being said, she has backtracked on her narrative that she straight up fired shia because she has a no assholes policy. i think that was her manipulating the situation for her own benefit.

no spoilers here don't worry darlings: i also saw the movie yesterday and i enjoyed it. i think it's a solid 6/10 however the script is definitely not the feminist retelling that was promised. olivia is very obviously a white feminist who is still extremely privileged and it shows in her very shallow understanding of feminism and intersectionality. like there's two women of color in the cast, in a setting during the 50s that was historically very unfriendly for them, but there's no depth to that or their characters. there's not really much of a feminist angle either, it's all very man = bad (not that i disagree). but it was still a fun watch and it is beautifully shot and designed.

harry was terrible in every scene that wasn't sex or joking around. i say this as someone who thinks he's great on stage, i've been to two of his shows and he has charisma when he performs. but this man is not an actor and even in the scenes where he was passable, it was because he was basically playing himself. to put him up against florence in his first lead role was criminal. it's convinced me that olivia does not love this man or she wouldn't have made him do this.

Or she was so infatuated that she genuinely believed at the time he could go up against Florence Pugh and now she's waking up to the reality that of course he couldn't.
i have never loved someone enough to lie to them like that

I feel like she was delusional at the time and wanted to show off her man and probably realizes it was a huge mistake

I clearly don't know their relationship timeline - so did he audition for this and that's when she fell for him? Or did OW meet HS previously and once Shia left, she offered him the role in hopes to get closer to him?

I agree that the situation is likely murkier than what we've been seeing, and that we can't trust Shia for shit. She definitely should have kept her mouth shut about ~~ protecting Florence ~~

But...what about the scene that apparently Harry "acted so well, everyone was in tears?"

I agree. I think this is a situation where everyone involved has their own version of events and the truth is somewhere in the middle. But also idk these people, so who knows.

Lol at Harry being good in the sex scenes. I'll take it!
Yeah, this I kinda where I’m at. I do believe Olivia manipulated the situation for her own benefit and has some revisionist history knowing what we all know now about Shia..however I do believe the core issue(s) between Olivia and Florence are more nuanced and receipts or not, I have zero goodwill towards Shia and I am highly suspicious of anything that comes out of his mouth.

ITA. Olivia is obviously a white feminist moron but for people to assume all sorts of things about how she was literally putting Florence in danger, when Miss Flo herself was excited to work with Shia, is quite the jump. I think Olivia is very opportunistic for sure, but not the monster some folks are painting her to be.
I don’t even care about the “throwing Florence under the bus” thing. It’s how Olivia was hell bent on everyone knowing she fired Shia to create a safe environment for women and Florence. And how now she’s talking him up. She flipped from her “zero tolerance for assholes”, to saying how great he is. And she decided to do this now, when literally everyone knows about the allegations and his trial.
Olivia badmouthing Florence is just a nothing thing to pile up on top of so many other things she did wrong.

I know she is in the film, but do directors usually do a lot of press for their work?
I feel like the majority of them go to the premieres, give a few interviews with select print outlets and let the actors do a lot of the promotion.
tbf Florence is obviously not doing promo, and the other lead is Harry, and we all saw his comments in Venice about his acting experience...
her main actor won't do the promotion lol
I think if they're fairly recognizable they do, especially actors turned directors.

Bradley Cooper did loads of interviews for A Star is Born. Greta Gerwig is always out there promoting her films. Olivia herself did a lot of press for Booksmart.

yeah but Bradley was to co-lead of ASIB, and Gaga was the star of the press tour, she did just as much press as he did. and Greta didn’t do more press than any of her stars in Lady Bird and Little Women. with Olivia it is partly that none of her lead actors want to promote this movie, but she’s been doing the most press about this movie for a solid year
I can recall Taika Waititi on late night shows, interviews, etc for Love and Thunder
they do interviews, but i guess mostly for film magazines and such and not a show like this one. i personally prefer my directors to shut tf up lol.
directors do press for their films, especially the big ones. usually it’s a magazine cover or two, the press junkets, and some interviews. but Olivia’s been the face of this movie since earlier this year when she was on a Vogue cover. maybe that’s how long Florence has refused to promote this movie but it’s been the Harry-and-Olivia movie for a long time.

for a director to be the central focus on a press tour when she has a cast this famous is very rare, but in this case it is partly because literally every other main cast member refuses to do press.
She's a star and recognizable in a way that a lot of directors aren't so it makes sense to an extent
