‘Don’t Worry Darling’ Spit-Gate Drama: Olivia Wilde Discloses: ‘Harry Did Not Spit On Chris’
Don’t Worry Darling, starring Olivia Wilde, has been the subject of numerous speculations, and the actor and director are now speaking out about the controversy. Wilde discussed the “spit-gate” event at the Venice Film Festival while appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
In a viral video from the film’s premiere, Harry Styles is seen apparently spitting on Chris Pine as he enters the theatre. On social media, there was a heated discussion about whether the former member of One Direction had insulted his Don’t Worry Darling co-star.

In the trailer for her appearance on the CBS late-night show, Wilde began to add, “Another one of our odd rumours, Spit-Gate, which you might have heard about, is I think…,” but Colbert interrupted her.
Did Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine? If so, why or why not, Colbert interjected to read the query off his card. Back up your response.
No, he didn’t,” Wilde chuckled. But I feel like it’s the epitome of how people will hunt for drama anywhere they can. Chris was not spit on by Harry, in fact.

Colbert said, “Only time will tell,” sounding doubtful.
He didn’t, in fact, said Wilde.
In a response to People, Pine’s representative denied that Styles had spit on him, saying: “This is a stupid narrative – a pure fiction and the outcome of a weird web illusion that is blatantly deceptive and allows for dumb speculation.”
