‘Don’t Worry Darling’ star Kiki Layne claims “most” of her scenes were cut

Even after its theatrical release, there is still more drama for the film's cast.

Kiki Layne has opened up about her timing filming the Olivia Wilde-directed Don’t Worry Darling. As the film was released theatrically over the weekend, Layne revealed that most of her screen time was cut.

Layne, who portrayed the role of Margaret, shared a post to Instagram celebrating the release of the film and sharing the screen with her co-star Ari’el Stachel. However, Layne stated that most scenes she shot with Stachel would not be seen by audiences.

“The best thing about #DontWorryDarling is that I was lucky enough to meet @arielstachel. They cut us from most of the movie, but we thriving in real life,” she captioned a video from the set of the film.

Layne added hashtags like “Got My Check,” “Got My Man” and “Everything Happens for a Reason” seemingly confirming she is dating her co-star. Stachel saw the post and replied with the following: “My love. You are a queen and your talent shines so bright. I was thirsty then and I’m thirsty now.

Stachel then took to Instagram to post a series of photos from the set alongside Layne. “My favorite part of my experience in Don’t Worry Darling. This woman did phenomenal work and I was thirsty the second I met her,” Stachel posted. Layne replied, “Love you. Grateful that God brought us together here.”

Don’t Worry Darling has been swamped by controversy ever since it was announced. From the get-go, Shia LaBeouf, who originally played Jack (Styles’ role), departed the production and since then rumours of a bust-up between Wilde and Florence Pugh have been spreading like wildfire.
