At the Venice Film International Festival earlier this month, Olivia only had good things to say about her co-star.
“Florence is a force,” Olivia said during the film’s press conference on Sept. 5. “We are so grateful that she’s able to make it tonight despite being in production on Dune. I know as a director how disruptive it is to lose an actor even for a day, so I’m very grateful to her, very grateful to Denis Villeneuve for helping us, and we’re really thrilled we’ll get to celebrate her work tonight.”
She also briefly addressed the online speculation.
“As for all the endless tabloid gossip and all the noise out there, I mean, the internet feeds itself,” she said during the Venice Film Festival press conference on Sept 5. “I don’t feel the need to contribute. I think it’s sufficiently well-nourished.”
