Harry Styles spitting on Chris Pine is just “another weird rumor,” says Olivia Wilde.
Video footage recently went viral of the As It Was singer and his Don’t Worry Darling co-star at the premiere of their film at the Venice Film Festival, with many speculating that Harry spat on Chris.
However, a representative for the latter denied allegations online that the 28-year-old star took her seat with her 42-year-old co-star before the screening.
Harry even made fun of Spitgate during his New York City concert.
And now, the film’s director – who is also Harry’s girlfriend – is speaking out.

Harry Styles jokes that he went to Venice to spit on Chris Pine.
Addressing the The Late Show with Stephen ColbertOlivia said: “Another of our strange rumours, the spit gate, which you may have heard of, I think…”
Kobert then chimed in and asked: “Did Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine, why or why not? Support your answer.”
Laughing, Olivia replied: “No, he didn’t.
“But I think it’s a perfect example of that, like people will look for drama wherever they can. Harry didn’t spit on Chris, actually…”
The host then teased his guest, adding: “Only time will tell.”
Olivia smiled back: “No, she really didn’t.”
A spokesperson for Chris told Variety in a statement: “This is a ridiculous story — a complete fabrication and the result of a bizarre online illusion that is clearly fraudulent and allows for silly speculation.
“Just to be clear, Harry Styles did not spit on Chris Pine.”
The clip hinted at rumors of a rift between the couple.
But the rep confirmed that they have “nothing but respect” for each other and that speculation was rampant.
The spokesman added: “There is nothing but respect between these two men and any suggestion otherwise is a blatant attempt to create drama where none exists.”
As Harry marked his milestone 10th concert at the New York City venue on September 7, the Late Night Talking singer joked about his inability to spit.
He told the crowd: “This is our 10th show at Madison Square Garden, it’s wonderful, wonderful, wonderful to be back here.
“I just went to Venice to spit on Chris Pine but fear not, we’re back!”
