More "Don't Worry Darling" drama...and this time it's not Florence Pugh or Shia LaBeouf
update: 11am September 6 2022
A statement from Chris Pine's rep went wide to multiple media outlets on Tuesday morning.
"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," the statement read. "Just to be clear, Harry Styles did not spit on Chris Pine. There is nothing but respect between these two men and any suggestion otherwise is a blatant attempt to create drama that simply does not exist."
While the Twittersphere is fiercely debating the apparent disrespect like it was the Zapruder film, TMZ spoke to insiders from both camps.
Sources close to Pine told the outlet Harry absolutely did spit on him and he took it as a form of disrespect. While people close to Styles denied the incident entirely, saying it only appeared that way in the video.
Of course, this far from settles the matter.
The film has been hounded with rumors of a feud with star Florence Pugh and director Olivia Wilde -- who is said to have started a romance with Styles on set (the relationship news came amid her public split from Jason Sudeikis). What to speak of the Shia Labeouf of it all -- see the links below for more on this truly wild press tour.
