However, this act wasn’t clearly visible in the recordings. Moreover, representatives for Pine have disputed the footage.
“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,” Pine’s rep said in a statement to Variety. “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.”
A Venice Film Festival source told Variety that there was no tension around Styles and Pine during the premiere. Styles plays the male lead opposite Florence Pugh in the film directed by Olivia Wilde.
However, Pugh did not make an appearance at the festival’s press conference for the movie. She’s also unlikely to attend the Q&A in New York.
Meanwhile, Styles is set to finish his 15-night residency at Madison Square Garden on September 21.
