Anyway, Pine’s rep officially put the kibosh on the rumors the next day, telling People, “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.”
So, there you have it. Harry Styles did not spit on Chris Pine. He did swap spit with Nick Kroll, though.
And he had this to say about the movie: it is a movie.
The gworls, meanwhile, are definitely in a bit of a tiff. Here’s a timeline of all the drama, which now includes both Wilde’s and Pugh’s stylists, but still doesn’t include Gemma Chan. Good for you, Gemma Chan!
