Olivia Wilde laughed at the “strange rumour” that Harry styles spat on chris pine in a projection of do not worry honey earlier this month.

The film’s director appeared on US television show The Late Show With Stephen Colbert this week, where the subject of ‘spitgate’ soon came up.

For those who need a quick refresher on the bizarre rumour, parts of the internet were speculating whether the former One Direction member spat on his co-star during the Venice Film Festival.

Footage captured at the event showed Harry taking a seat next to Chris, who was clapping. Just before he sat down, Harry’s lips moved before Chris looked down, stopped clapping, then looked amused.

Both Chris and Harry have since cleared up the matter, with Harry joking about it in the most Harry Styles way, with Olivia now saying it was a case of people looking for “drama”.

Asked about a series of “weird rumours”, Olivia brought up the spitgate issue and laughed, before Stephen asked, “Did Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine? Why or why not? Support your answer. ”

“It didn’t, but I think it’s a perfect example of people looking for drama anywhere they can,” he said. “Harry didn’t actually spit on Chris.”

When Stephen joked, “Only time will tell,” Olivia replied, “No, he really didn’t!”

A rep for Chris previously issued a statement to Variety, saying: “This is a ridiculous story, a complete fabrication, and the result of a bizarre online illusion that is clearly misleading and allows for foolish speculation.

“Just to be clear, Harry Styles did not spit on Chris Pine,” the statement continued. “There is nothing but respect between these two men and any suggestion to the contrary is a blatant attempt to create drama that simply does not exist.”

Harry also brought up the subject when he resumed his Love On Tour show at New York’s Madison Square Gardens earlier this month, joking: “I went too fast to Venice to spit on Chris Pine… but fear not, we’re back. ”

Don’t Worry Darling hasn’t been far from the headlines in recent weeks due to much speculation about the alleged feud between Olivia and the film’s star, Florence Pugh, based on the impression that the actor has barely promoted the film in the media. social networks.

The two women have also expressed differing views on the film’s sex scenes. Olivia has described the film as a new way to focus on female pleasure and, while promoting the film, she has discussed her philosophy on the portrayal of sex on screen. On the other hand, in a Harper’s Bazaar profile, Florence suggested that the film’s marketing has placed too much emphasis on sex.

Olivia was also forced to speak out about apparently false reports that Harry was paid more than triple Florence for his work on the film, despite the latter receiving top billing.

Don’t Worry Darling hits UK cinemas on September 23.
