The drama surrounding the controversial film “Don’t Worry, Darling” has been playing on repeat in everyone’s minds for the past few weeks.
There have been allegations of a feud and fake news, and fans were eager to see if there would be tensions and drama at the Venice Film Festival for the film’s red carpet and international premiere.
The entire cast attended the red carpet premiere on Monday, including Florence Pugh, Harry Styles, Chris Pine, Gemma Chan, and director Olivia Wilde.
Pugh did not stand near the director and did not attend the earlier press conference, while her stylist also posted a photo of the British actress with the caption “Ms. Flo,” a dig at Wilde and the leaked film.
On the other hand, a video of the “As It Was” singer entering the theater and taking his seat next to Pine has surfaced.
In the brief clip, Styles appears to spit on Pine, who appears to be enraged.
However, as he waved to others in the audience, the former One Direction singer made no indication that he had spat on his co-star.
Styles and Pine did not respond to the alleged spit, but social media reacted strongly.
One user tweeted:
“The Spit >>>> The Slap.”
The user referred to Will Smith slapping Chris Rock on live TV after he made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair loss at the Academy Awards.
A second one stated:
“I neeeeed to know what could be so bad that Harry Styles would SPIT on Chris Pine live and in color. I can’t wait for the PR press release from one of them.”
Styles may have done it on purpose, according to one wild theory.
“So… theory… he did it so people would stop talking about the two women feuding??”
Florence Pugh and Olivia Wilde have feuded after Pugh was unhappy with how their director treated her on set with her boyfriend and co-star Styles.
Their feud erupted after the “Book Smart” director stated in an interview that she fired Shia LaBeouf because of his aggressive personality. Still, the actor denied being fired and said he walked out. In emails, Wilde also addressed the “Even Stevens” star.
A video of the director sent to LaBeouf was later leaked, in which she blamed the actress for the behind-the-scenes situation and urged him not to abandon the project, contradicting her previous claim.
Another speculated that Styles was “angry” with Pine’s reaction to his press conference statement.
Chris Pine had gone viral earlier that day for zoning out during the film’s press conference and appearing perplexed by what Harry Styles had said.
Another viral video from Monday showed the “Wonder Woman” actor reacting to the “Watermelon Sugar” singer’s comment.
Styles stated in the interview:
“You know my favorite thing about the movie like it feels like a movie it feels like a real like go to the theater film movie that you know you kind of… the reason why you go to watch something on the big screen.”
Pine’s reaction, on the other hand, was captured on social media.
One fan stated:
“I always liked Chris Pine but I’ll be honest his reactions to everything happening today were so perfect I have no choice but to stan.”
