No, the director insisted, he did not. “However, I believe it is a prime illustration of the fact that drama can be found almost anywhere. Chris was not spit on by Harry, in actuality “She spoke up before Colbert interrupted her once more.
He joked, “Only time will tell.”
“No, he didn’t, truly!” Wilde reaffirmed.

Despite the heated circumstances surrounding the movie practically since its start more than two years ago, what many thought to be Styles spitting at Pine as he took his seat inside the theatre was only an illusion.
Wilde also addressed the controversy surrounding Shia LaBeouf’s long-ago departure from the movie, which he was originally slated to star in. In an interview with Variety, Wilde alleged that the “Transformers” actor had been let go. But after the interview was published, LaBeouf publicly announced that he had left “Don’t Worry Darling.”
“As the director, I made an early attempt to mediate a conflict between two parties in order to see whether they could collaborate amicably. I was given a deadline when it became evident that the working arrangement was untenable, and I chose my actress, which I’m extremely glad I did “Colbert heard from Wilde.
“Was I disappointed at the time that we couldn’t make it work? Sure. Did new information about him emerge afterwards that gave me reassurance that we made the right choice? Absolutely.”
LaBeouf either resigned or was fired, although Wilde didn’t appear to want to say either outright.
“Shia had to be replaced. Despite the fact that he is a wonderful actor, it didn’t work “She went on to explain. “When he gave me the choice between him or Florence, I selected Florence, which gave him the impression that he was leaving and gave me the impression that we were continuing without him.”
It’s a semantics issue, she continued. “… It wasn’t going to move forward in the way that he wanted it to, and so he had to leave.”
Styles was given LaBeouf’s part.
