Chris Pine's Rep Denies Claim That Harry Styles Spat on Him at the Venice Film Festival
Here’s what really happened, according to the other side of the internet.
“Just to be clear, Harry Styles did not spit on Chris Pine,” his rep told PEOPLE. “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.”
The rumors began once a clip of the actors sitting alongside at the Venice Film Festival went viral in which it appears as if Styles spat on the Star Trek star, who seemingly laughed it off. However, others are saying that what had actually occurred in that moment is that Pine was reacting to finally locating his glasses. Twitter user @cinemazietgeist wrote, “Chris Pine just wondered where his sunglasses were after the applause. And he zoned out (like he’s been doing all day) and realized it’s in his lap. So I am sorry to say Harry Styles did not spit on him.”
Feel free to rewatch the clip below.
