Olivia Wilde confirms that Harry Styles DID NOT spit on Chris Pine at the Don’t Worry Darling premiere in Venice: ‘People will look for drama anywhere’

Director Olivia Wilde set the record straight about her boyfriend and Don’t Worry Darling co-star Harry Styles supposedly spitting on Chris Pine.

Video surfaced earlier this month of the Don’t Worry Darling cast taking their seats before the world premiere screening at the Venice Film Festival, when some surmised from Pine’s reaction to Styles taking his seat next to Pine, that Styles spit on Pine.

Both Styles and Pine’s reps denied the incident took place – with Styles even joking about it at a concert – with Wilde, 38, confirming on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert that the incident now known as ‘spitgate’ simply did not happen.

She was discussing the ‘weird rumors’ that were swirling around the production, when she mentioned, ‘spitgate,’ joking, ‘which you might have heard of.’

Colbert referred to his notes, which included the question, ‘Did Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine? Why or why not? Support your answer.’

A laughing Wilde said, ‘He did not, but I think it’s a perfect example of people will look for drama anywhere they can.’

She definitively added, ‘Harry did not spit on Chris, in fact,’ while Colbert joked, ‘Only time will tell.’

‘No, he really didn’t!’ Wilde said with a laugh.

The supposed ‘spitgate’ was just one of many controversies surrounding the film, which started with a report this summer from the New York Post that Florence Pugh and Wilde clashed on the set.

‘I can tell you for a fact that Flo seeing Olivia and Harry all over each other on set did not go down well as Olivia was still with Jason when she first hooked up with Harry,’ an insider said in late July.

While neither Wilde nor Pugh have directly responded to those reports, Pugh’s lack of promotion for the film has continued to fuel those rumors.

She skipped the press conference for the film at the Venice Film Festival but she did arrive for the photocall and the premiere screening, though he left shortly thereafter to get back to work on Dune Part 2.

Pugh has since skipped the New York City premiere screening earlier this week, where Styles made headlines for hugging a fan in a wheelchair.

Don’t Worry Darling opens in over 4,000 theaters this weekend, with box office projections claiming it could debut between $20 million and $24 million.

Wilde will next be seen on the big screen in Damien Chazelle’s Babylon, as part of an all-star cast including Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and Jean Smart.
