By the time Don't Worry Darling premiere was over, audiences took to their feet, giving the film a five-minute ovation. Styles could be seen in the balcony giving his co-star Nick Kroll a big hug. A video from sometime back showed the As It Was singer coming and sitting next to Chris Pine. Before taking the seat, Styles paused, briefly glanced at Pine’s lap and then sits down. Pine stopped clapping as if interrupted by something, looked down at his own lap and shook his head in disbelief. Many who have chanced upon the video were convinced that Styles 'spat at' Pine.
Netizens react to video from Don't Worry Darling premiere
Many social media were upset after the video of Styles and Pine surfaced on the internet. Commenting on the clip, one said, "I actually love Harry’s music, but this is so disrespectful….Pine is literally his senior in age and in ACTING ability. Even if Harry didn’t aim at him (which he clearly did) he spat at a movie premiere…this is so cheap. Also Chris Pine is a gentleman to not react (sic)." Another one said, "Harry is not even on the level of pine when it comes to acting, homie better humble himself (sic)."
All about Don't Worry darling controversy
Behind-the-scenes drama rarely extends beyond internal industry gossip, but the question of exactly what happened in the making of “Don’t Worry Darling” has become a source of global intrigue. Lack of clarity about everything from Shia LaBeouf’s departure from the film early on, to Pugh’s perceived lack of public support for the project on her social media accounts have been simmering on TikTok and Twitter for some time and then furthered by a report in the Hollywood newsletter Puck, citing various anonymous studio and production sources.
