The actress stated she acted in the most effective curiosity of lead actress Florence Pugh to maintain her “safe” from Shia LaBeouf — who was initially solid because the lead earlier than being recast by Harry Styles — when pressed by Colbert concerning the state of affairs.
“Once it became clear that it was not a tenable working relationship, I was given an ultimatum,” she instructed the host.
“I chose my actress, which I’m very happy I did,” she continued. “At the time, was I bummed that we weren’t able to make it work? Sure. Did information about him come to light later that made me confident we made the right decision? Absolutely.”
Wilde stated he gave her an ultimatum between her and Pugh, saying she selected Pugh and he or she thinks her and LaBeouf see his departure from the movie otherwise.
“When he gave me the ultimatum of him or Florence, I chose Florence, and that was him feeling he was stepping away, and me feeling like we were moving on without him,” she defined.

“They’re praised for being tyrannical. They can be investigated time and time again, it still doesn’t overtake conversations of their actual talent or about the film themselves,” she instructed Colbert. “This is something we’ve come to expect. It is just very different standards that are created for women and men in the world at large.”
