It’s not out until next month, but Harry Styles' accent in Don’t Worry Darling is already being mocked by social media users.
A new clip has been released for the upcoming film from director Olivia Wilde, which stars Styles and Florence Pugh as a young married couple.
The movie is set in the 50s and sees the pair move to an experimental community in California, with Styles’s character working for a company called the Victory Project which is set upon 'changing the world'.
The new clip from the psychological thriller shows the leading pair engaged in a tense argument – but all anyone could talk about in the comments section was Styles’s accent.
\u201c@dontworrydarlin @RollingStone The multitude of accents , the lack of commitment to a single emotion - you can\u2019t be serious \ud83d\udc80\ud83d\udc80\ud83d\udc80\ud83d\udc80\ud83d\udc80 this is so bad\u201d
Wilde recently took the opportunity to deny a claim that Styles, with whom she is currently in a relationship, earned three times more than Pugh.
“There has been a lot out there that I largely don’t pay attention to. But the absurdity of invented clickbait and subsequent reaction regarding a nonexistent pay disparity between our lead and supporting actors really upset me,” Wilde wrote in an email to Variety, following a longer discussion.
“I’m a woman who has been in this business for over 20 years, and it’s something that I have fought for myself and others, especially being a director. There is absolutely no validity to those claims.”
Don’t Worry Darling is scheduled to reach UK cinemas on 23 September.
