According to a report by Variety, Pine’s representatives have squashed the rumours and have said in a statement, “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.”
There were also rumours about the ongoing feud between Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh. During the premier, Pugh was asked about the same and she said, “”As for all the endless tabloid gossip and all the noise out there, I mean, the internet feeds itself. I don’t feel the need to contribute. It’s sufficiently well nourished.” The film Don’t Worry Darling will be released on September 23, 2022.
