“I’m here for this!!” wrote one user on social media. “She is the moment and they all know it.”
“Me and my partners at a party trying to document my ridiculous outfit”, joked another, while one commenter wrote: “You’re doing amazing, sweetie”.
“Is my guy using a disposable camera,” another asked while one fan summed up the views of many by simply writing: “ADORBS”.
At one stage during Monday’s press conference for the film, Wilde was asked whether there had been a “falling out” between herself and Florence Pugh.
“Florence is a force and we are so grateful that she is able to make it tonight despite being in production on Dune,” she began.
“I know as a director how disruptive it is to lose an actor even for a day so I’m very grateful to her and Denis Villeneuve for helping us – we’re really thrilled we’ll get to celebrate her work tonight.”
She continued: “I can’t say enough how honoured I am to have her as our lead. She’s amazing in the film and as for all the endless tabloid gossip and all the noise out there, I mean, the internet feeds itself. I don’t feel the need to contribute, I think it’s sufficiently well nourished.”
Other commentators suggested that the gossip surrounding the film and the women involved was sexist and would not happen to men in the same position.
Former Empire editor Terri White wrote: “Greatly enjoying the Rinsing the Female Director In A Way No Man Has Ever Been Rinsed For Actually Bullying And Harassing His Actresses Press Tour.
“Any female director will tell you how hard it is to get their second feature made (no matter how successful their first was). And then to be overwhelmed by gossip, which has somehow crossed over from tabloid into film culture? NAH, MATE.”
She added: “Female actor turned director? Let’s reduce her to a girl on girl spat about Instagram likes and who she might be shagging.”
On the disposable camera shoot between Pine and Pugh, one Twitter user wrote: “At this point I just want to see moments like this re: #DontWorryDarling.
“There's just so much negativity and too much speculation swirling around. It's just nice to see a moment of joy from the actors esp. Florence.”
