The movie cast includes her current boyfriend, Harry Styles, Florence Pugh, and Chris Pine. Olivia Wilde was on stage when a woman interrupted her to give her an envelope. She told the crowd that she is going to open it on the stage itself because it seemed like a script.

The BookSmart Director Blasts Jason Sudeikis
Wilde believes that her ex-boyfriend was trying to embarrass and threaten her on stage, which is why he sent those papers at that very moment. She further said, “He could have served me discreetly, but instead he chose to serve me in the most aggressive manner possible.” She made the remarks that this action was “extremely contrary to our children’s best interests.” However, Jason Sudeikis on the other hand has allegedly said that this was an honest mistake. He said, “I deeply regret what happened. Olivia’s talk was an important event for Olivia, both professionally and personally, and I am very, very sorry that the incident marred her special moment.”
Florence Pugh’s Feud with her Director
