Harry Styles was accused of spitting on Chris Pine during the “Do not Worry Darling” premiere
It may have seemed like a nightmare, but the seriously awkward press day and the premiere of Do not Worry Darling at the Venice Film Festival on Monday really did happen. The film has been plagued with drama for weeks, and it all came to a head as the cast reunited on the red carpet for some seriously awkward group photos before ascending into the movie theatre for a screening.
Highlighting the tension behind the scenes, Olivia, Harry, and Florence were all separated from each other in the seating arrangements, with their costars acting as human buffers. Gemma Chan sat between Florence and Harry, and on Harry’s other side was Chris — who separated him from the rest of his castmates.
Chris stopped applauding, and Harry appeared to shake his head in disbelief while smiling to himself with a bemused look. Internet sleuths were eager to figure out what had prompted this reaction, and it was soon claimed that Harry had spat onto Chris’s lap as he sat down. Slow-motion replays of the video appeared to confirm that Harry had indeed made a spitting movement with his mouth right before Chris stopped his applause.

Someone else tweeted, “I do not know what the fuss is about Harry Styles, but I would like to publicly state that he could spit on me.” Another joked, “I choose to believe Harry Styles spat on Chris Pine because life is more fun that way.” However, on Tuesday, Chris’s representative vehemently denied that the actor had been spat on by his costar, attributing the video to ill-timed body language from both stars and insisting that Harry and Chris are on good terms.

“Let me be quite clear: Harry Styles did not spit on Chris Pine. There is nothing but respect between these two men, and any suggestion otherwise is a blatant attempt to create drama where none exists.”Harry’s representative declined to comment at the time, but the pop star acknowledged the drama during his live show at New York’s Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night.
