Olivia Wilde has addressed the rumours that Harry Styles spat on Chris Pine at the Don’t Worry Darling premiere. In the initial video that had surfaced about the potential ‘spit gate,’ as it’s been called – it does seem like Harry takes a take at Chris Pine, but did he really?
Via NME, Wilde began talking about this to Stephen Colbert: “Another one of our weird rumours, Spit-Gate, which you might have heard about, is I think …” Wilde began, before Colbert cut her off and asked from a notecard: “Did Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine? Why or why not? Support your answer.”
She said: “No, he did not. But I think it’s a perfect example of, like, people will look for drama anywhere they can. Harry did not spit on Chris, in fact …”
Colbert jokingly added: “Only time will tell.”
Both Pine and Styles have since denied the rumours of the incident as well, with Pine’s representative saying: “This is a ridiculous story – a complete fabrication and the result of an odd online illusion that is clearly deceiving and allows for foolish speculation. Just to be 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 that simply does not exist.”
Styles jokingly addressed the rumours at the first show he played at Madison Square Garden after returning from Venice.
Styles would say to the packed crowd: “It’s wonderful, wonderful, wonderful to be back in New York. I just popped very quickly to Venice to spit on Chris Pine.”
There you have it, folks. Nothing like a little drama to stir everything up in the world of entertainment, but fear not, Styles fans – Harry is not one to take a spit at others.
