Adding to that, another speculation arose on the Internet when a clip from the 79th Venice Film Festival’s Don’t Worry Darling premiere, rumors about co-stars Harry Styles and Chris Pine started circulating online, referring to the Spitgate incident.

The clip allegedly showcased Styles spatting on the latter with fans arguing about whether the alleged incident happened or not. It had not become that controversial if the latter’s reaction was not captured on the camera.

To clarify the same, the alleged victim’s rep shared that it was not the actual truth,

“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.”
