Harry Styles’ mum defends ‘Don’t worry honey’ after acting drama

Harry Styles’ mother, Anne Twist, has defended her son’s new film ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ amid ongoing rumblings of behind-the-scenes drama.

“If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything,” Twist wrote on her Instagram story on Thursday, seemingly in response to people who criticized the film in her comments section the day before.

“Honestly, I am amazed and saddened by the mean comments here. I liked a movie. If this is not your cup of tea, don’t go…”

She continued: “If you don’t like me .. please don’t follow me. Just.

While the movie didn’t get great reviews by critics, Twist raved about the film after watching it with a group of friends on Wednesday.

“First time in French cinema .. first day of screening .. ‘Don’t worry baby’ you were excellent!” she wrote on Instagram. “I really enjoyed it from start to finish. Kudos to @oliviawilde and team for getting us in, kudos to @harrystyles for being awesome Jack. Very proud as usual 😊 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼.”

While some of her 2.6 million followers criticized the film itself, others called out the mother-of-two for not commenting on Florence Pugh’s performance.

Another handful of comments focused on Styles, 28,’s contentious relationship with Wilde – which is said to have caused an on-set rift with Pugh, 26.

Rumors started swirling earlier this year that the cast of the show had some behind the scenes issues when Pugh — who is usually active online — hasn’t posted promotions for the film on her social media pages.

Things took a turn last month when Wilde, 38, said he fired Shia LaBeouf from the film in an attempt to protect the Little Women actress — which a leaked video later contradicted.

Shia LaBeouf was originally slated to star in the film.

However, the actress-turned-director’s story is not wavering, as she told Stephen Colbert on Wednesday that LaBeouf gave her an “ultimatum.”

“We had to replace Shea. He’s a fantastic actor, but it wasn’t going to work,” she said said on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” “When he gave me the ultimatum, you know, him or Florence, I chose Florence.”

Although LaBeouf claimed to have dropped out of the film, Wilde said, “It felt like he was pulling away, and I felt like we were moving on without him.”
