Chris is also seen appearing to pull a face and adjust his seat before he looked down at his lap, appearing confused.
One Twitter user called Jimmy mused: “The amount of times I watched this video just to see if Harry Styles did in fact spit on Chris Pine.”
One of Harry’s fans called Katie fired back and wrote: “Do people seriously think that Harry would’ve actually SPIT on Chris, with full knowledge that he was surrounded by cameras?
"I mean he wouldn’t do it in private either, he has class, however he’s obviously not going to do it when there’s a million cameras around.”

Another film fan tweeted: “Don’t Worry Darling at Venice really was the gift that kept on giving.
“I’ve watched Harry Styles not spit on Chris Pine’s lap about 50 times since waking up this morning.”
The film, out September 23, has been dogged by speculation of a feud between the director, Olivia Wilde, and British star Florence.
Olivia, 38, dodged questions about their alleged fall out at the press conference for the film hours before the screening.
Olivia’s boyfriend Harry and his co-stars Gemma Chan, 39, and Chris remained straight faced during the toe-curling press conference for their film Don’t Worry Darling.
When asked about the feud, Olivia said: “She’s amazing in the film and as for all the endless gossip and all the noise out there, the internet feeds itself.
“I don’t feel the need to contribute. I think it’s sufficiently well nourished.”

Florence, who skipped the press conference, later appeared to ignore Harry and Olivia on the red carpet ahead of the screening.
The pair are said to have fallen out after a bust up over actor Shia LaBeouf, 36 — fuelled by texts he leaked which appeared to show US director Olivia being disparaging towards Florence.
