Chris Pine just cleared up the video showing Harry Styles 'spitting' on him

·2-min read

We're sure you've already heard, but there's been a lot of whisperings around the on-set relationships shared by the cast and crew of 'Don't Worry Darling' - the new movie directed by Olivia Wilde, starring Florence Pugh, Chris Pine and Harry Styles (and at one point was also set to star, Shia LaBeouf, rather than Harry).

Fuel was then added to the fire about fall outs when a recent video, taken at the Venice Film Festival went viral earlier this week, after one social media user claimed it appeared to show Harry spitting on the lap of fellow actor, Chris Pine.

The clip, shared by @Mac70J, has been liked over 114,000 times and shows Chris sat in the middle of Harry and his girlfriend, Olivia. Harry appears to walk over and take his seat to the left of Chris, and Chris suddenly stops clapping and looks down at his lap, seemingly rather confused about something.

It was captioned: "#HarryStyles appears to spit on Chris Pine i won't sleep until i know the truth".

Now, Chris' rep has spoken out about the whole debacle and is keen to clear the whole thing up, saying that no spitting between the two occurred.

In a statement shared by People on Tuesday (6 September), Chris' team described the clip as an "odd online illusion".

"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."

That sounds like a pretty strong shutdown if you ask us. Here's hoping all the other drama will be worked out before long too...
