If she really commits, if she really puts her mind and heart into it, at this point. And if you guys can make peace, and I respect your point of view, I respect her but if you guys could do it, what do you think? Is there hope? Is there hope? You let me know.”

The video proves that Olivia Wilde did not fire the actor, and instead, she was willing to make Florence Pugh feel unsafe and uncomfortable while working with the actor.
