Chris Pine’s rep breaks silence on viral moment with Harry Styles

There’s been a lot of drama surrounding Olivia Wilde’s upcoming film, Don’t Worry Darling, and it’s not even out in theaters yet. Wilde recently squashed rumors that Harry Styles, who she is currently dating, was paid three times more than his co-star Florence Pugh, per Variety. She also came under fire for claiming she fired Shia LaBeouf, who was set to play the role of Styles, after he had “combative energy” despite evidence her comments were untrue. LaBeouf has insisted that he ended the film due to scheduling conflicts and that Wilde pushed false narrative to make the story sound more appealing, Variety reported.

There was also some apparent tension between Florence Pugh and Wilde that began during the making of Don’t Worry Darling. Pugh was reportedly not on board when Styles and Wilde met during production. A source told Page Six, “I can tell you for sure that when Flo saw Olivia and Harry on set it didn’t go down well as Olivia was still with Jason when she first met Harry.”

However, the drama only seems to continue as time ticks by and the release date approaches. Now, a rumor involving Styles and another star of the film, Chris Pine, has completely taken over the internet.

The Don’t Worry Darling cast traveled to Venice to promote the film at the Venice Film Festival, but the project wasn’t the main talking point on social media. Harry Styles returns to his seat next to Chris Pine in a now viral clip. Fans suggested he spit on his co-star before actually sitting down because in the video, Pine looks surprised and stares into his lap before finally smiling. However, others thought Pine was looking for his sunglasses and realized they were on his lap the entire time. The interaction quickly sparked controversy as people speculated as to what actually happened.

Before things got too out of hand, a Pine rep told People, “This is a ridiculous story – a complete fabrication and the result of a weird online illusion that is clearly deceptive and allows for silly speculation.” The rep added: “Just to be clear, Harry Styles didn’t spit on Chris Pine. There’s nothing but respect between these two men.” Pine’s rep also clarified that there is no drama between the two stars.

Though Pine’s rep silenced the rumor, social media users are still talking about it. One person tweeted, “‘Did Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine?’ is the 2022 version of the gold-white vs. blue-black dress.” If one thing is for sure, the drama surrounding “Don’t Worry Darling” doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
