Between Florence Pugh skipping press day and the Insta wars between her and Olivia Wilde's stylists, I have simply not known peace since the cast of Don't Worry Darling touched down in Venice. Like many things in Hollywood, some of the ~drama~ can probably be contributed to smoke and mirrors/not knowing the *full* story, but it does seem like some of the juicier rumors might be true—at least, if the cast's body language is any indication.

Body-language expert Blanca Cobb analyzed cast photos from the infamous Venice Film Festival premiere and pointed out “a photo of disconnection” to Cosmo, saying the event was “a free for all.” Let’s read more into it, shall we? *dusts off handy-dandy magnifying glass*

Of the image below, Cobb said, “Everyone is everywhere. There’s a hodge-podge of poses with people looking in different directions and wearing varying smiles. There’s a sense of disconnection among the actors. Just because you’re with a group doesn’t mean you feel a part of the group.” No-ted!

And if that's not enough, some of the cast members look more in sync than others—namely, Florence and Nick Kroll. “The two who seem most in sync are Florence Pugh and Nick Kroll. Notice Nick’s shoulder is slightly behind Florence’s, which indicates that he’s supportive of her. And the lack of distance between the two suggests they’re emotionally close,” said Cobb.

Chris's posture, on the other hand, appears to indicate “something might be up,” as “we usually stand with some distance between our feet for stability and comfort. Notice that [Chris’s] legs and feet are pulled together.” *cue dramatic music*

As for Harry Styles? Cobb mused on the fact he is standing slightly ahead of everyone else and his shoulders are pronounced, suggesting “he’s feeling pretty good and confident.”

A-ny-way!! Other conspiracies taking over the Twittersphere? That Florence pulled a “Pelosi clap” when acknowledging Olivia:

And the singer loudly whistled during the applause for “Miss Flo”:

I have not the slightest inkling where the Don't Worry Darling saga will end up, but I do know this: I deeply, deeply empathize with the following sentiment about the whole thing:
