In reaction to a popular video from the renowned international film festival, Harry Styles joked that he “went to Venice to spit on Chris Pine.”
Don’t Worry Darling, a psychological thriller starring Olivia Wilde, the pop superstar, Florence Pugh, and Chris Pine, recently had its world premiere at the festival.
In a video that went viral on social media, Styles is seen leaving the theatre and dipping his head just a bit, which causes Pine, who is sitting next to him, to look perplexed.
Since then, Styles has resumed his US tour. On Wednesday night, he gave a performance at New York’s Madison Square Garden, during which fans recorded video.
He laughed as he informed crowds of onlookers, “I simply popped very quickly to Venice to spit on Chris Pine… but do not worry—we are back.
The audience erupted in yells and laughter in response to his statements.
