Nick Kroll attends the "Don't Worry Darling" red carpet at the 79th Venice International Film Festival on September 05, 2022 in Venice, Italy.

Nick Kroll knows he’s not the star of Don’t Worry Darling. He made sure those who attended the Venice Film Festival premiere wouldn’t make the mistake of thinking he was, in a hilarious TikTok.

The comedian shared a behind-the-scenes video showcasing what it was like to arrive at the premiere as “just a supporting actor.” While in a car with fellow supporting actress, Sydney Chandler, Kroll hilariously recorded people lined up and peering into their window to get a glimpse of the film’s stars, Harry Styles, Florence Pugh, Olivia Wilde and Chris Pine.

“Not who you want ladies, sorry,” Kroll says in a monotone voice with a chuckle. Chandler plays along and says, “Sorry! Not us! Nope, nope!” The Big Mouth star and co-creator continued to tell the fans on the outside, “Not Harry, not Olivia, not Florence. Bye!”

“You won’t know, but I promise you, in very certain circles, we’re sort of…” Kroll adds before trailing off as women peer into the car. “The faces of quiet disappointment,” Chandler says, as Kroll repeats, “Hi! You don’t know me. Hi, hi, nope, no, no.”

Fans adored the video, which has received over 3.5 million views on TikTok and over 1 million views on Twitter. One fan was amazed that Italy didn’t recognize the Kroll Show star writing, “Did they not know it was you? I mean it would be weird if you had a flag or something stating it was you I guess, but damn, I’d at the very least be like ‘Oh s—, hey Nick!!'” Another wrote, “None of these people are on the level I’d be losing my mind if Mr Kroll drove by me like this.”

If the fans didn’t know Kroll before the premiere, they certainly did after when Styles grabbed Kroll by the face and pulled him in for a kiss after the film’s screening. “Okay but you got to kiss Karry Styles and they didn’t so who’s the real winner here,” one fan wrote. While another said, “But he looked at you like this, Nick. And then he kissed you full on the mouth. You won.”

Don’t Worry Darling premieres in theaters on September 23.

All The Drama at the 'Don't Worry Darling' Venice Film Festival Premiere

There was much to worry about at the Don’t Worry Darling premiere at the Venice Film Festival Monday (September 5): Florence Pugh and Olivia Wilde kept their distance, Harry Styles kissed Nick Kroll and, apparently, he also spit on Chris Pine.

In a now-viral Twitter video of the co-stars, the former One Direction member, 28, took the empty seat beside Pine, who had director Olivia Wilde on his other side. After the “As It Was” singer seemingly aimed his spit at the 42-year-old actor, Pine froze mid-clap and stared into his lap with a smile before laughing to himself. Earlier at a press conference with Styles, Pine was visibly zoning out while Styles answered questions about the film.

Meanwhile, Pugh was noticeably absent from the press conference due to filming commitments for Dune: Part Two in Budapest, according to Wilde. However, the Midsommar star arrived at the festival before the press conference had even finished — with an Aperol Spritz in hand and seemingly not a care in the world, making it clear that wasn’t the case.

Wilde, Styles and Pugh were not photographed next to each other at Venice, often leaving Pine and co-star Gemma Chan to act as buffers. This led Twitter to wonder if the feud really isn’t over as the actors claim while stirring up another rumor that Styles and Wilde called it quits.

As we previously reported, Wilde denied any beef with Pugh in an interview with Variety, praising the actress for her performance in A24’s Midsommar. “I had been blown the f— away by her,” Wilde shared. “I loved the film, but I loved her. I was just like, ‘Well, she’s extraordinary. She’s clearly the most exciting young actress working today.’”
