In case you’ve been MIA from the internet for the past few weeks, fans on social media have been speculating that the rumored off-screen drama between Olivia and Florence has only grown before the premiere. This gossip only increased when Florence was unable to attend the film’s press conference on September 5 due to a scheduling conflict. While there, Olivia took the opportunity to criticize the “tabloid gossip” that was brewing about the two.
“Florence is strength,” Olivia said. “We are so grateful that she was able to make this happen tonight even though production continues Dune. I know as a director how upsetting it is to lose an actor even for one day, so I’m so grateful to her, so grateful to her Denis Villeneuve to help us, and we’re really happy to celebrate her work tonight.”
