She thinks it’s a “Wilde” accusation. Olivia Wilde doubled down on her claim that she fired Shia LaBeouf from “Don’t Worry Darling,” now alleging he gave her an “ultimatum” over Florence Pugh.

“We had to replace Shia. He is a fantastic actor, but it wasn’t gonna work,” the movie’s director, 38, said on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Wednesday. 

“When he gave me the ultimatum of, you know, him or Florence, I chose Florence.”

In response to LaBeouf’s claim that Wilde had begged him to stay on the project, she clarified, 

“That was him feeling he was stepping away and me feeling like we were moving on without him.

“Early on in the process of making the film, as the director, I tried to mediate a situation between people to try to see if they could work together happily,” Wilde explained.

“Once it became clear that it was not a tenable working relationship, I was given an ultimatum. I chose my actress — which I’m very happy I did.

“At the time, was I bummed that we weren’t able to make it work? Yes. 

Did information about him come to light later that made me confident we made the right decision? Yes,” she added, noting that a video of her asking LeBoeuf, 36, to stay on the film was “taken out of context.”
