If you kept up with all the Venice Film Festival news, you’ll know that the Don’t Worry Darling drama got seriously out of hand. From feud rumors between the cast to Harry Styles appearing to spit on Chris Pine—the fan theories were running wild. However, there was one positive thing to come from the event—and it’s this cute moment between Florence Pugh and Chris Pine...

Ahead of the annual Venice Film Festival, it was presumed that Florence would be a no-show, after reports of a feud between her and the film's director, Olivia Wilde, began to circulate. Fans also spotted that Florence was seemingly doing no publicity for it. However, despite missing the press conference, Miss Flo did make her glorious, red carpet debut, wearing a killer black tulle Valentino gown.

She truly dominated the red carpet and had a mini-reunion with her fellow cast members (though notably not with Harry or Olivia), and one moment in particular set fans swooning.

As Florence approached the group, we were treated to the most adorable exchange between her and Chris, where he embodied a true Flo-stan and took pictures of her as she strutted down the red carpet toward him.

He could even be seen leaning back to get the best angle of Flo and her gown on his film camera, with the actress even throwing in a few cute poses just for him.

Basically, he really gave us a ‘You’re doing amazing sweetie’ Kris Jenner moment—and we loved it.

The pair then hugged, with Florence kissing him on the cheek before then greeting Gemma Chan and Nick Kroll, who had also been cheering her on.

As it stands, we’re still no closer to finding out what on earth was going on behind the scenes but so far, the film, which is out now, has had a generally positive reception. So, that’s something...
