Oh boy, it seems like the cast and crew of Don't Worry Darling got caught up in a whirlwind of drama and conspiracy theories. But fear not, because Chris Pine is here to set the record straight and share some hilarious insights.

First things first, Pine wants everyone to know that if there was drama on set (*cough, Olivia Wilde*), he had no clue. "If there was drama, there was drama," he said. "I absolutely didn't know about it, nor really would I have cared." Interesting. It's almost as if Pine was saying, "Drama? What drama? I'm just here to do my job and look good doing it!" But let's get to the real juicy stuff - the rumor that Harry Styles spit on Pine during a screening. Yes, folks, this actually became a thing. But according to Pine himself, it's all just a big misunderstanding. "Harry did not spit on me," he laughed. Phew! As for what really went down?

So what really happened? Well, apparently, Styles leaned down towards Pine and said something along the lines of "It's just words, isn't it?" Cue the confused looks from both parties involved. But fear not, my friends, because Pine has an explanation for this, too: "We had this little joke... and sometimes when you're doing these press things, your brain goes befuddled, and you start speaking jibberish." Ah yes, we've all been there Chris. It sounds like Styles was trying to make light of the situation with his comment. And let's not forget about those memes of Pine zoning out mid-interview at the Venice Film Festival. The man himself found them hilarious: "All the memes I saw about my face in Venice made me f---ing laugh... Sometimes the question's not that interesting, and you just f---ing zone out." Hey Chris, we feel ya, buddy. It sounds like even Hollywood heartthrobs can get bored during interviews.

So let's all take a deep breath and remember that sometimes rumors are just that - rumors. And if anyone knows how to handle them with grace (and humor), it's Chris Pine. He may be known for his smoldering good looks on screen, but off-screen, he's just a regular guy who likes planes and laughs at memes like the rest of us!
