Don’t Worry Darling: Did He (Harry Styles) Spit or Not on Chris Pine–Saga Continues

Harry Styles Spat on ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ Co-Star: “Complete Fabrication”

A viral video appeared to show the former One Direction singer spitting on Pine at the Venice Film Festival.


A representative for Chris Pine has denied that Harry Styles spat on his Don’t Worry Darling co-star at the Venice Film Festival.

“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,” the rep said in a statement obtained by The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday.

An overnight viral video appeared to show Styles spitting on Pine as they sat in the Sala Grande for the Don’t Worry Darling premiere.

Nick Kroll, Florence Pugh, Chris Pine, Olivia Wilde, Sydney Chandler, Harry Styles and Gemma Chan attend the 'Don't Worry Darling' red carpet at the 79th Venice International Film Festival.

Not so, Pine’s rep insisted.

Both Styles and Pine were at the screening for their new film, which is directed by Olivia Wilde and co-stars Florence Pugh and Gemma Chan.

Pine’s rep spoke up after footage from the Don’t Worry Darling premiere generated tens of millions of views on Twitter and other social media sites.

The alleged “spit-gate” incident is only one of many controversies that director Wilde and her cast have had to fend off while premiering Don’t Worry Darling in Venice.

Noticeable Absence of Florence Pugh from Press Conference

Wilde in particular had to respond to rumors of discord on set, and questions about the absence of her lead star Florence (the best thing about the mediocre thriller) Pugh, currently shooting Dune 2 in Budapest.

It should be noted that the shoot did not stop Timothée Chalamet doing the full press schedule in Venice.

As of today, Don’t Worry Darling is the worst reviewed film at this year’s edition of the otherwise strong Venice Film Fest.
