It was the (supposed) spit seen ’round the world.
During a screening of their film Don’t Worry Darling at the Venice Film Festival, a theory set the Internet on fire that Harry Styles spit on his co-star Chris Pine.

But Chris Pine finally addressed the rumors a few months later about the incident and about supposed drama on the set of the film that plagued filming.
Pine said, “If there was drama, there was drama. I absolutely didn’t know about it, nor really would I have cared. If I feel badly, it’s because the vitriol that the movie got was absolutely out of proportion with what was onscreen.”
And what about the spitting?
Pine said, “Harry did not spit on me. Harry’s a very kind guy. … I’m flying back from Venice and I’m sleeping, having a great time on the plane, I love planes, and [my publicist] wakes me up in a, you know, state and said, ‘We have to craft a message about what happened in Venice.’ And I was like, ‘About what?’ ‘About Harry spitting on you,’ which I had no idea what happened. She showed me the thing and it does look, indeed, like Harry’s spitting on me. He didn’t spit on me.”
Pine added, “He leaned down and I think he said, ‘It’s just words, isn’t it?’ Because we had this little joke, we’re all jet-lagged, we’re all trying to answer these questions, and sometimes when you’re doing these press things your brain goes befuddled and you start speaking jibberish. “And we had a joke, ‘It’s just words, man.'”
