Olivia Wildes' latest film, Dont Worry Darling, may be the most talked about right now, as the majority of the films are centered on behind-the-scenes drama, whether real or imagined. The latest piece of bizarre news comes from an alleged spitting incident between Harry Styles and Chris Pine, and Styles has now made a reference to the rumors during a show in New York.
The Venice Film Festival "Spitting" Incident
During the Venice Film Festival, a video was released that appeared to show Harry Styles spitting on Chris Pine as he returned to his seat next to his Dont Worry Darling co-star. Styles has now made light of the rumors and reports, and his joke has been published on Instagram.

There has been more than a little controversy throughout the promotion of Don't Worry Darling, but there had been no indication that there might be any disagreement between Pine and Styles until the alleged spitting incident. I suppose Styles might have made this same joke if he had done the implied spitting, but at this point that doesn't seem to be the case, making the joke even more fun.
It's wonderful, wonderful, and wonderful to be back in New York. I just went very quickly to Venice to spit on Chris Pine.
Don't Worry Darling's Behind-the-Scenes Drama
If there is any reason to believe there might have been a conflict between Harry Styles and Chris Pine, it's because there does appear to have been some disagreement on the set of the film among others who filmed. Chris Pine has not been linked to those issues, but Harry Styles has, along with Florence Pugh, and director Olivia Wilde, and even Shia LaBeouf.
Shia LaBeouf was originally cast in Don't Worry Darling, and a leaked video has suggested that she was ejected from the film. The relationship between Wilde and Florence Pugh may have been problematic.
This alleged feud between Wilde and Pugh has only seemed to be raging. Pugh is only doing limited press for the film in which she plays. Because Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde have been romantically linked since the film was being made, he has become part of the same story.
Although Chris Pine's name had remained secluded from all of these rumors and innuendos until the film's premiere at the Venice Film Festival, it was certainly easy for people to assume that Styles would have spilt on Pine due to everything else.
Naturlich, at this stage, virtually none of this is confirmed information. People are mostly looking for methods to match the evidence to the hypothesis rather than the other way around. At some point, we may get some sort of insight into the true picture, but that may be years away.
