Right, Chris Pine has confirmed Harry Styles did *not* actually spit in his lap

Someone’s come up with a theory that’ll blow your mind

Okay, look. I have no idea what Don’t Worry Darling is even about, at this point. I’m too invested in the drama – and, let me tell you, it’s taken *another* weird turn.

The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival last night (5th September) and all the stars came out to celebrate. Olivia Wilde, Harry Styles, Chris Pine and Florence Pugh were each spotted, as well as the added tension between them (why?! We still don’t know). But a certain viral clip revealed an awkward situation between Olivia, Harry and Chris which has fans caught up in a WILD conspiracy theory.

People seem to think Harry Styles spat in the lap of Chris Pine, before giving girlfriend Olivia the evils while she ignores him. It’s chaotic; it’s amazing… but is it true?

So, here’s a (very serious) investigation into whether Harry actually spat in Chris’ lap in front of hundreds of onlookers:

As Harry goes to take his seat next to Chris, he seems to purse his lips and stare straight into the actor’s lap. Chris then slowly looks down, with a “disappointed-but-not-surprised” look on his face. Olivia side-eyes Harry awkwardly, as sad, nostalgic music plays in the background the entire time.

Someone zoomed in on Harry’s lips to see if any spit actually made its way out:

Another person enhanced the quality of the video, “for our viewing pleasure”:

One Twitter user had a theory of his own, which might finally prove Harry didn’t, in fact, spit in Chris’ lap. “Chris has his phone in his hand, he puts it down between his legs,” he said. “He is clapping and then gets a notification on the screen that makes him pause and smile. Watch it again in that context.”

Now, it just comes down to you. What do you think? Did Harry Styles actually spit in Chris Pine’s lap?

In a statement exclusive to PEOPLE, a rep for Chris said of the feud rumours surrounding the actor and his Don’t Worry Darling co-star: “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.”

“Just to be clear, Harry Styles did not spit on Chris Pine,” the rep continues. “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.
