It’s the mystery of the ages: Did Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine at the Don’t Worry Darling world premiere at the Venice Film Festival?
Despite Chris Pine’s reps releasing a legit statement denying that their client got spat on, Harry has now weighed in and jokingly said the opposite.
Following the bonkers premiere, Harry has yeeted himself off the promo trail and returned to his happy place: the stage.
During his recent show, Harry addressed the spit malarkey, telling the audience: “I popped over to Venice to spit on Chris Pine. But fear not, we’re back!”

I mean, he’s obviously joking. But Christ it’s funny.
In Pine’s statement to Variety, his reps said: “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.”
ICYMI: Earlier this week, a video emerged of Harry Styles potentially lobbing a slob glob/spittle bomb/warm expectorate at his Don’t Worry Darling co-star Chris Pine and I am nothing but worried, Darling.
Chris Pine. Harry Styles. Two men society has tricked us into believing are attractive despite the fact that neither (in my humble opinion) possesses that certain hot spark. That je ne sais quoi. But hey, you came for the drama, not my theories on whether these men qualify for the hotlympics or not.
First, the video. It’s where all this drama began.
It came from the screening of Don’t Worry Darling at the Venice Film Festival, which has been the source of many nuggets of tea, intrigue, spice and speculation.
Have a look at it for yourself:
So what’s the verdict here? Did Harry spit on Chris Pine? What happened on that movie set bro 💀 pic.twitter.com/aOmAr0mAfY— Steve Rogers (@SteveRogers1943) September 6, 2022
Harry’s cheeky face afterwards pretending as if nothing happened? Olivia Wilde‘s look of disappointment? Chris literally pausing like something just happened to him? It all adds up as rather convincing evidence of Harry hoick hoicking a wet missile at Chris.

Thanks to this wild occurrence (of which there are many surrounding this damn movie) the internet has been thrown into a spin. The vid has given birth to a gorgeous smorgasbord of memes related to Harry hawking gobs. Allegedly hawking gobs. Proliferating ptui’s.

I personally wouldn't mind being spat on by Ha- [taken out by Olivia Wilde with a sniper]— Kemal Atlay (@kemal_atlay) September 6, 2022
the “i did not spit on that man” notes app apology harry styles will soon be forced to tweet is already shaping up to be an all-timer— i want to bailey-ve 🛸 (@been_herde) September 6, 2022
Honestly, if Harry does eventually drop a notes app about this whole spitting affair I just know the internet is going to go wilder than Olivia’s last name.
It will be talked about by generations to come. It will be placed in a museum of music right next to Lady Gaga‘s meat dress. Harry, if you’re reading this, pick up the phone NOW and get typing. This is your chance to forever be remembered for spitting on another man! Take it you fool!
Some folks online put their data analyst hats on and examined the video so closely that Sherlock Holmes is looking at quitting his job and getting a Certificate II in Hair and Beauty from TAFE.

Not that it really helps, but we’ve also got alternate angles.
