Here’s a teaser clip taken from her Wednesday, September 21 interview The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Wilde, 38, brought up the now-viral video that featured the “As it Was” singer, 28, seemingly spitting on the Star Trekstar, 46, returning to his seat at Venice International Film Festival earlier in the month.

Wilde brought up the speculation as an example that “people will look for drama anywhere.” Host Stephen Colbert, however, wasn’t letting the Booksmart director off the hook without giving a straight answer about what did — or didn’t — go down.

“Did Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine, why or why not? Support your answer,” Colbert, 58, asked, to which the O.C. alum replied, “He did not! Harry did not spit on Chris.”

The comedian, however, wasn’t convinced. “Only time will tell,” he quipped, to which Wilde enthusiastically responded, “He really didn’t!”

Wilde isn’t the first of the Don’t Worry Darling cast and crew to shut down the “spitgate” speculation. After the clip sparked headlines, Pine’s rep vehemently denied the claims.

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.”

The 28-year-old singer addressed the rumors with humor during his concert at Madison Square Garden in September 7.

“Wonderful to be back in New York, I just popped very quickly to Venice to spit on Chris Pine,” Styles joked on stage. “But fraught not, we’re back and our job tonight is to entertain you and I promise, we are going to do our absolute very best.”
