Olivia Wilde says Harry Styles didn’t spit on Chris Pine


Continuing the most headline-producing movie press tour possible of all time, Olivia Wilde stopped by “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Wednesday with her take on what has been affectionately referred to as #spitgate.

For those who managed to avoid the details, the controversy stems from footage taken at the Venice Film Festival in which Harry Styles, star of Wilde’s film “Don’t Worry Darling”, was seen making a move that led some to believe that he was sorry. on his co-star Chris Pine.

“I think it’s a perfect example of people will look for drama wherever they can,” Wilde Colbert told. “Harry didn’t actually spit on Chris.”

A rep for Pine had also previously tried to clear the air, telling People magazine: “There is nothing but respect between these two men and any suggestion otherwise is a blatant attempt to create drama that just doesn’t exist. exists.”

Styles also joked about the rumor.

The whole incident was one of many buzzy narratives that came out of the film’s production and subsequent promotion.

The film itself, distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures (which is owned by CNN’s parent company), hits theaters on September 23.
