The U.K. native also graciously acknowledged Wilde, 38, who is her son’s director. “Well done @oliviawilde and team for drawing us in,” Twist continued, adding how the “Watermelon Sugar” singer, 28, was a “fabulous” leading man, alongside his costar Florence Pugh. “Very proud as usual,” she concluded her post.

During the world premiere of the flick at the Venice International Film Festival earlier this month, social media went berserk over a video that ostensibly showed the “As It Was” singer spitting on his costar Chris Pine.

After much speculation went down online, Wilde finally addressed “Spitgate,” shutting down the rumors about her beau.

A Wednesday episode on The Late Show With Stephen ColbertThe O.C. alum brought up the various fan theories as an example of people “look[ing] for drama anywhere.”

Host Stephen ColbertHowever, he continued to push for the BooksmartDirector about exactly what happened during the clip.

“Did Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine, why or why not? Support your answer,” the Washington D.C. native, 58, asked, to which the New York native replied, “He did not! Harry did not spit on Chris.”

“Only time will tell,” the Daily Show alum sarcastically quipped, to which Wilde assured, “He really didn’t!”

The Drinking Buddies actress isn’t the first member of the Don’t Worry Darling cast and crew who commented on the “Spitgate” drama. After the video was posted online, a Pine representative denied the claims.

“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,” the Star Trek star’s rep said in a statement to Us WeeklyThe incident was over shortly thereafter. “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.”

Styles, on the other hand, laughed about the situation at his September 7 Madison Square Garden concert.

“Wonderful to be back in New York, I just popped very quickly to Venice to spit on Chris Pine,” the Brit 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.”
