Gray Poupon wants to participate The Olivia Wilde dressing scandal.
The Dijon mustard brand is taking advantage of being put at the center of the drama, announcing in an Instagram post that it is the release of 100 limited edition “Don’t Worry Dijon” jarsa riff on Wilde’s last film which stars Harry Styles.
Not sure why Dijon mustard has entered the talk of celebrities? The drama began when an anonymous nanny, whose claims have not been verified by CNN, spoke to the Daily Mail about the end of relationship between Wilde and actor Jason Sudeikis. The actress/director and “Ted Lasso” star were together from 2011 to 2020 and have two children.
The anonymous nanny offered private details about Wilde’s alleged romantic relationship with Styles, who co-starred in Wilde’s recent film “Don’t Worry, Darling” with Florence Pugh. The nanny said Wilde irritated Sudeikis by making a salad for Styles with his “special dressing” in the family kitchen.
The internet began to search wildly for the recipe. Wilde, who called the nanny’s statements “false and slanderous”, contributed to the gossip mill, post a photo on their Instagram story of a passage from Nora Ephron’s autobiography “Heartburn” late Tuesday.
“Mix 2 tablespoons of Gray Poupon mustard with 2 tablespoons of good red wine vinegar,” reads the passage described by Wilde. “Then, whisking constantly with a fork, slowly add 6 tablespoons of olive oil, until the dressing is thick and creamy; this gives a very strong vinaigrette that is perfect for green salads such as arugula, watercress and endive.
Gray Poupon will be giving away a limited number of new jars in the coming days via its social media channels, owner Kraft Heinz said.
Instagram post even features a feather boa wrapped around the jar — a costume staple at pop star Harry Style’s 15 shows at Madison Square Garden.
