The movie Don’t Worry Darling made its official premiere at the Venice Film Festival and although it was panned by critics, the cast stole headlines, especially Harry Styles, who apparently spat on his co-star Chris Pine.
The video of the awkward moment went viral on social networks, unleashing all kinds of theories. But it was not until a few hours ago that the interpreter of As It Was spoke on the subject.
Chris Pine just wondered where his sunglasses were after the applause. And he zoned out (likes he’s been doing all day) and realized it’s in his lap of him. So I am sorry to say harry styles did not spit on him. pic.twitter.com/7b4GoCvnHJ

In the video, Chris Pine and Olivia Wilde are seen sitting in their seats, ready for the start of the event. At that moment, Harry Styles arrives at the place, approaches them and, while he sits down, seems to spit in Pine’s face, who is stunned at what happened and smiles sarcastically.
The images sparked memes, debates and even hate theories among the actors. Due to the scandal, Pine’s representative came out to deny the spitting.
Harry Styles jokingly addresses internet speculation that he spat on Chris Pine at the Venice premiere of #DontWorryDarling:
“It’s wonderful, wonderful, wonderful to be back in New York. I just popped very quickly to Venice to spit on Chris Pine.” pic.twitter.com/5PEswcATmF

Styles remained silent until his next public appearance, held at a concert at Madison Square Garden in New York, United States. There, the actor also clarified the facts in a very ironic way.
It’s wonderful, wonderful, wonderful to be back in New York. I rushed to Venice to spit on Chris Pine.
As expected, the singer’s words caused amazement, laughter and applause among those present. Styles did not give more details about it and it is likely that he does not, since he usually keeps a low profile in terms of the scandals that surround him.
