AceShowbiz - Harry Styles is reuniting with Chris Pine. The "As It Was" crooner is spotted giving his "Don't Worry Darling" co-star a warm hug when they meet up in Sao Paulo, Brazil three months after their "spit-gate" drama.
For the Monday, December 5 outing, Harry donned a black shirt with his hair styled in a top knot. In the meantime, Chris looked comfy in his white T-shirt and dark pants. The 42-year-old actor also sported a full white beard.
The "spit-gate" drama began in September during the "Don't Worry Darling" Venice Film Festival premiere. In a video that went viral on social media, the former One Direction member could be seen walking to his seat. While slightly bending over his body, the pop star appeared to spit on Chris, who sat next to his now ex-girlfriend Olivia Wilde.
Immediately after Harry made that motion, Chris abruptly stopped clapping and looked down in a surprised manner as the brief video came to an end. Another clip showed a different angle of the pair's awkward exchange.
The viral clip prompted Chris' rep to debunk the rumors. "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," so "The Contractor" actor's spokesperson said in a statement. "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."
Harry, for his part, joked about the alleged incident during his show at Madison Square Garden. While on stage, the "Watermelon Sugar" hitmaker told the crowd, "It's wonderful, wonderful, wonderful to be back in New York. I just popped very quickly to Venice to spit on Chris Pine."
"Don't Worry Darling" director Olivia herself also shut down the speculations when appearing in the September 21 episode of "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert". The 38-year-old confidently stated, "Harry did not spit on Chris."
