Everyone has been patiently awaiting Florence Pugh's film with none other than Harry Styles, but the actress wishes the media storm would focus less on the steamy scenes with her co-star.
Speaking to Harper's Bazaar, the 26-year-old actress revealed that the internet mania surrounding the sex scenes in Don't Worry Darling is "not why I’m in this industry".
Fans were sent reeling when the trailer dropped for the highly-awaited psychological thriller – which will be released on September 23 – as it depicted some reisqué moments between characters Jack and Alice, portrayed by the pop star and actress respectively.
"When it’s reduced to your sex scenes, or to watch the most famous man in the world go down on someone, it’s not why we do it," she told the publication.
Florence explained that she understands the interest that comes with starring alongside someone as well known as the One Direction star, saying: "Obviously, the nature of hiring the most famous pop star in the world, you’re going to have conversations like that.
"That’s just not what I’m going to be discussing because [this movie is] bigger and better than that," she said as she decided to put the media's fixation aside.
"And the people who made it are bigger and better than that," the Midsommar actress continued.
Pugh's cover story for the magazine came days after she teased never-seen-before scenes from Don't Worry Darling – director Olivia Wilde also shared the same teaser to her socials.
In the same interview with Harper's Bazar, Florence revealed that she and boyfriend Zach Braff had split after three years of dating.
