Fans are now convinced that Harry Styles spat in Chris Pine’s lap as he took a seat next to him at the Venice Film Festival premiere of DWD on Monday, August 5. In a new video, the 28-year-old seemingly spits in his co-star’s lap in front of his girlfriend, Olivia Wilde.
Chris Pine, 42, can then be seen looking startled as he stares down at his lap and sticks his tongue out before laughing at the former One Direction star, who is busy smiling at his girlfriend.
Hundreds of fans have commented on the Twitter video questioning if Harry did indeed spit in Chris’s lap, whilst others maintain that it was an optical illusion and Pine was just fiddling with his sunglasses on his legs. Neither Pine nor Styles have yet commented on the bizarre series of events.
What do you think?
Fans have taken the conversation even further by pointing out that Harry became known as ‘the whale’ at his One Direction concerts for taking a gulp of water and then spitting it out at the crowd—a move he performed (and was criticized for) during his 2021 Las Vegas show amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
