‘Don’t Worry Darling’ Stars Kiki Layne And Ari'el Stachel Comment On Having Most Of Their Scenes Cut From The Film

Kiki Layne and Ari’el Stachel have commented on their experience filming the Olivia Wilde-directed film, Don’t Worry Darling.

Layne acknowledged that many of her moments with her primary scene partner, Stachel, weren’t included in the final product as the film has now debuted in theaters around the country.

Layne uploaded an Instagram photo celebrating the movie's debut.

Layne played the part of Margaret in the film, and she pointed out that viewers would not see the majority of the sequences she filmed with Stachel.

“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 wrote.

Layne added hashtags like “Got My Check,” “Got My Man” and “Everything Happens for a Reason."

Stachel replied to the post saying, “My love. You are a queen and your talent shines so bright. I was thirsty then and I’m thirsty now.”

In his own post, Stachel said, “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.”

Layne replied, “Love you. Grateful that God brought us together here.”

He also reposted an Instagram with a tweet referencing how he was underutilized in the film

Despite several scandals surrounding the movie, including  a reported incident between Wilde and Pugh that crew members have disputed, the film managed to earn over $19 million in its first weekend.

The scandals might have helped pique interest in a film that has gotten mixed reviews since first debuting at the Venice Film Festival.
