Harry Styles has joked in response to a viral video at the world-famous international film festival that he “went to Venice to spit on Chris Pine”.
The pop megastar recently attended the festival for the premiere of Olivia Wilde’s psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling, in which he stars alongside Florence Pugh and Pine.
In a video that caused an uproar on social media, Styles was seen returning to his seat at the screening and bowing his head slightly, causing Pine, who was sitting next to him, to react in confusion.
The clip was widely shared, although a representative for Pine told US outlet People that the idea of the singer spitting on him was “ridiculous”.
Styles has since returned to his US tour, performing at Madison Square Garden in New York on Wednesday night, footage of which was captured by fans.
Wearing a bright yellow and pink T-shirt, he laughed as he told fans, “I just drove to Venice real quick to spit on Chris Pine… but fear not, we’re back.”
His words elicited screams and laughter from the audience.
