There was another raging debate over whether Styles spit on Pine at the premiere. And, yes, you read that right — we are discussing two grown men and saliva. As Styles sat down, he faced Pine and something unseen caused Pine to stop clapping, look down at his lap and make a strange face.
The debate over spit-gate led Pine to officially deny he was spat upon. His rep told Variety on Tuesday, “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. 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.”
Pine did look anguished doing press at times for this film. Another video of Pine and Styles went viral because Pine looked zoned out as Styles explained to a reporter why he liked making the thriller, one of his first movies as he branches out from pop stardom.
“My favorite thing about the movie is like it feels like a movie,” Styles said as Pine stared into space. “It feels like a real movie. Go to the theater film. The reason why you go to watch something on the big screen.”NaughtyGossip.com where he delivers all the dish about the stars we love in his naughty but nice signature style.
