When Colbert was asked to clarify whether LaBeouf had withdrawn or been fired from the film, Wilde said he tried to act as mediator between the actor and his leading lady, Florence Pugh.
“When it became clear that this was not a committed working relationship, I was given an ultimatum,” she told the late-night host. “I chose my actress and I’m so glad I did. At the time, was I embarrassed that we couldn’t make it work? Sure. It did. Information about him Will it come to light later that gives me confidence that we made the right decision? Absolutely.”
Colbert pushed her to clarify why LaBeouf thinks he quit, while she thinks he was fired, to which she responded that the way it happened, they both felt like they were moving on without each other.

“People will really talk about the movie,” Wilde said. “They’re praised for being tyrannical. They can be interrogated over and over again, and it hasn’t overtaken conversations about their actual talent or image. It’s something we’ve come to expect. It’s created very different standards for women and men in the world.
