Did Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine? Shock after video goes viral, but it may have just been 'sunglasses'
VENICE, ITALY: Harry Styles's upcoming film, Don't Worry Darling has been beset by controversy for some time now. Amid rumours of a feud between director Olivia Wilde and the film's lead Florence Pugh, comes this bizarre moment from the movie's Venice Film Festival premiere that has now fone viral. A video of Harry and Chris Pine has left fans confused, shocked, and in some cases, outraged.
A viral video on Twitter shows Harry Styles seemingly appearing to spit on Chris Pine during the Don’t Worry Darling premiere. The video seems to have been captured while the cast was taking their seats at the premiere event at the 2022 Venice Film Festival on September 5. It shows Pine who is already seated beside Olivia looking on as Harry makes his way to the seat beside him.
JZMaclin posted the video on twitter with a caption: "#Harrystyles appears to spit on Chris Pine I wont sleep until I know the truth"
Another fan, @ivyspice posted a slow motion video of the same on twitter.
While he is approaching his seat, there is a moment where it seems like Harry might have spit something out of his mouth. At that same moment, Chris can be seen looking down as he stops clapping while trying to contemplate what happened. The video has been going viral on social media with fans wondering what actually happened. Pine is famously lovely — there's a reason he's known as the "Best Chris" — but to anyone with even a fleeting knowledge of the Don't Worry Darling saga, it can appear here that he's picking sides. Especially given this video from earlier in the day, which appears to show Pine looking, well, unimpressed while Styles talks, to put it mildly.
Of course it may have been just that Chris forgot where he left his sunglasses, and looking down, found them. Hence the reaction.
He apparently didn't https://t.co/WfUtHSPKel— m ᴴ ✡︎🍄 (@HarryPromote) September 6, 2022
As for Harry and Olivia who have been dating each other since last year, the couple did not make a red carpet appearance together nor did they pose for a photo together as a couple at the event. For the premiere as well, Harry and Olivia could be seen seated along with Chris Pine but not beside each other.
